Title: Concerts of 2018
Post by: Starman on October 12, 2017, 11:18:12 PM
The 2018 concert season is already starting off with a bang for me with two shows! Going to see St. Vincent and Lana Del Rey in January!

So:

Suggs at the Theatre Royal in Brighton in February

Franz Ferdinand at Brixton Academy, also in February.

Morrissey at the London Palladium in March

Arcade Fire at Wembley Arena in April

The Cure, Interpol, Goldfrapp, Editors, Ride, Slowdive and the Twilight Sad in Hyde Park in July (although some of those are bound to be playing at the same time on different stages, so won't be seeing all of them playing complete sets)

Got 3 Pearl Jam gigs in Europe lined up so far. Hoping to catch a U2 gig at some point and also hoping for another Neil Young European tour!

Rumors are afoot concerning a huge 40th anniversary tour by The Cure. I've never really been much of a fan, but I did see them once, and they were f-n incredible live. Would definitely be down to see them once more.

Also, hoping Austra, Bent Knee, and Zola Jesus all extend their tours into 2018. I'd love to see U2 once more as well, but I'm not paying $200 to see anyone.

Finally, I'd love to see one of those 2018 The The shows, but I'd need to hit the lotto to pull that off.   :(

The Cure's show in Hyde Park is advertised as their only European show next year so I doubt they'll play many shows outside of Europe: I'd be surprised if they do more than one or two shows in the U.S.

U2 and Elton John, so far. My Elton tickets are to the side a bit in the lower bowl, hope they're okay. Had tickets directly across but stalled and lost them.

I wanted to see HAIM at Radio City, but I waited too long.

Got tickets to see the Rolling Stones at the Olympic Stadium in Stratford in May via the presale (which while not perfect still worked a hell of a lot better than the U2 ones) - would have preferred a show at the weekend rather than on a Tuesday night but I'm happy enough. Just hoping the main support is better than the last time I saw them (The Vaccines).

I enjoyed the FF show more than the Suggs one, but both were good (Suggs is more of a one man show telling anecdotes and singing a few Madness songs between them than a proper concert) FF had ones of the best audiences I've seen in attendance at a gig in recent years, no drunken fools, no one pushing and shoving their way to the front, or moshing into people regardless.

Agreed. I've been to an FF gig last summer and the crowd was indeed really nice. And the new album is maybe not their best but still pretty good.

Right. Thanks! I'm actually tempted to get the DVD as I like one man shows a lot as well. Was it funny?

Wouldn't say it was hilarious, but then humour is a matter of personal taste - I thought it was funny without howling with laughter like some of the people sat around me were.
