Title: Concerts of 2017
Post by: imaginary friend on September 19, 2016, 06:02:55 AM
Red Hot Chili Peppers have just announced a show here in Detroit on Groundhog Day, so here goes the new thread.   :)

^this

new album from Paramore soon so that means tour!!!!

I also hope twenty one pilots is going to announce an Atlanta show after headlining Music Midtown this weekend. Strange to see no Atlanta on their 2017 winter tour

I might - gotta keep eyes open for setlists...if they're doing lots/all of the new album, I'll seriously consider it. If it's just 5 or 6 new songs and a bunch of Frusciante-era songs, forget it.

The number of bands I see each year seems to be diminishing.  Next year, I guess I'm hoping Depeche Mode tours again--I still enjoy them after all these years, though I'm a bit burned out on some of the hits, same as U2.  It seems like the rumors indicate a new album and 2017 tour in the works.

I have never actually gotten to see Depeche live since they haven't been to Australia since 94. When each tour gets announced i always hope for Aussie dates... however i think i am now pretty much over it... Burned out from all the hits like you (via watching all the live dvd's).

yea im REALLY hoping my friend pulls through and gets us tickets. He's seen the last 6 tours <since 89> and said hell stop at nothing to get tickets.

one of the reasons i really wanna go is the big name bands i follow have all but stopped coming to texas and i don't travel to see shows. Radiohead, Foo Fighters, U2 all skipped this great state. RHCP seems like the only sure thing i'll see next year as of now. I can only pray Beck and/or Green Day do "real" tours and come to Dallas.

You should get your wish. There's supposed to be a 3-DVD box set of all their music videos coming in November, and a new studio album by the beginning of next summer.

Yeah, I know about the videos box set, which I'm not too interested in, but I've heard the rumors about a new album, which sounds good to me.

...damn, I'd give anything to see Rachel Grimes perform live. I loved her band (Rachel's...yes that apostrophe's supposed to be there), and I was crushed when co-founder Jason Noble died a few years back. I've never seen jazz sax legend Henry Threadgill, either, and I've been a fan of his since my 1st year in high school.

Xiu Xiu, Aoife O'Donovan, Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith, Carla Bley, Tortoise...man, I'd have a great time at this!

Am I the only one who thinks it's kind of weird that they're still going to be on tour in North America next summer? I assumed that this summer was it, especially considering that the album will be almost two years old by that point.

Also, it is weird that they're skipping Atlanta. *man hugs for Ken*

I just came here to comment on this.  On one hand, it could be cool.  On the other hand, I really am starting to feel maxed out on some of these artists.  I've seen Roger twice--once on the Dark Side of the Moon tour, and once on the Wall tour.  I've seen Pink Floyd once, and David Gilmour twice.  I just don't know that it's worth the prices to keep seeing artists I've seen numerous times before, doing mostly the same songs.
Title: Re: Concerts of 2017
Post by: THRILLHO on October 13, 2016, 08:29:16 AM
i'd rather be seeing Gilmour but since i only saw the Wall tour i'd like to see other PF songs.

Yeah, don't get me wrong--Roger's Dark Side of the Moon tour was great--the visuals were really good, and it was great to see that album performed in its entirety.  It's just that, by now, unless there's something particular about the show that's significant or different, I'm getting less inclined to spend $$$ to see the same songs from 4 years ago.  I'm curious what the "25% new material" comment is referring to--it could be a positive, but he also performed at least one "new" song during DSotM (Leaving Beirut, I think), and it was awful.

That would be cool--I'm wondering if that's what the tour artwork is alluding to.  Though, he did Sheep on the DSotM tour, and he did Dogs on the In The Flesh tour before that, which is on DVD.  That leaves Pigs (Three Different Ones), which is cool, and would be nice to see revisited, but it's probably my least favorite part of the album.  The Pigs on the Wing opener and closer are also nice, but fairly brief.

At $250 a pop for the good seats, though, I have a hard time justifying the expense, even if he did it.  I wish he'd make more indication of what to expect before plunking down that kind of money.

Got my first ticket of 2017. Seeing Circa Survive with some friends in January. Not a huge fan but I dig the album they're doing a tour for.

Main reason I'm going is mewithoutyou. Haven't seen them besides on Parahoy. Really excited to see them at my favorite venue

He's supposed to have a new solo album done before he hits the road; Nigel Goderich is manning the boards for it.

Not the 3 best headliners they've ever had, and that's putting it mildly. I mean, I love SOAD, but they've given so many lifeless performances since reuniting.

Yeah, I'm going to one of the shows with a friend and it only came out to around $88 each with tax included. For the seats we got, I was pleasantly surprised.

RTJ are in my top 5 live acts I've seen. Easily one of the most fun.

It's also the night after Mewithoutyou and Circa Survive with will make for a nice weekend

Wow, really?  Are they nosebleeds?  I admit I'm tempted, but I'm not sure how much I need to hear the same classics.  Seeing him on the DSotM and Wall Tours (the latter from like the 15th row) was amazing, but I've recently turned a corner on seeing some of these stalwarts do a lot of the same material every 5 years or so.

Cool.  Hope you enjoy it!  I was checking out a full concert video of his from just a few weeks ago in Mexico.  I liked the fact that he did a sort of "Animals" segment, and Fearless.  Like I said, tempting...

i tried a few of these, not really my thing. i'm very picky with the hip hop i like idk most new hip hop isn't for me. thanks for sharing friends!

I can understand that. I honestly hate most newer hip hop; overall, it's just gone downhill.
BUT GUYS! Lil Yachty is amazing!!!

Nah bro, Desiigner is where it's at yo!

We have tickets to see Red Hot Chili Peppers in Buffalo 02/10/17 and Green Day here in Pittsburgh 03/25/17. Keeping an eye on Pollstar for several bands to tour in 2017 and want to go back to a few venues we were at this year, including Canalside (Buffalo NY), Merriweather Post Pavilion (Columbia MD), Cain Park (Cleveland Heights OH) and, of course, Red Rocks Ampitheatre (Morrison CO), which is annual road trip for us.

Well, only had to wait a few days and now here's a concert I'll be going to for sure in 2017. Have wanted to see Tom Petty live for 9 years, but it was always too expensive before. This looks more doable given the venue in our state (which has cheap lawn seats).

Also had no idea these guys have only been a band for 40 years--it seems like it would be much longer.

Lucky! We found lawn tickets for around $40 each, so we'll be getting those (5 of us going, so it'll still be a little pricey).

I'm excited, though. Especially if it ends up being his last full tour with the HB.

I was really surprised she's opening for Richie. I like his music, but I thought she was the bigger draw? I'm guessing she's not anymore?

yea she's not a big deal anymore really. neither is Richie but he's not notorious for showing up an hour or two late for a show. maybe if she "has" to open itll force her to get her ass moving a lil faster.

I follow Garson on Facebook. He implied he may be doing more performances, which I took to mean maybe a Garson-does-Bowie type of tour, maybe on his own without the others. He already has his "Bowie Variations" album of Bowie covers done in his iconic fractured jazz style. Yeah, I'd see that.

May 26 - The Lumineers/U2
July 3 - Roger Waters
Title: Re: Concerts of 2017

So far (definites):

Jan 24 - Alter Bridge/Nonpoint
July 1 - U2/OneRepublic
July 18 - Tom Petty
August 11 - Foreigner/Cheap Trick

Possibly seeing Metallica (when/if they tour around here), maybe the Chicago U2 show, Foo Fighters (should be touring toward the end of the year), maybe Roger Waters if I can score cheaper tickets, possibly the Killers if they tour this year, and I'm sure there'll be another concert or two announced by other artists that I'll want to see. We have a local outdoor venue that tends to get a lot of classic artists, so I might grab lawn seats for those. Main ones I'm really excited for are Alter Bridge, U2, and Tom Petty (especially Petty since he's been on my to-see list for years).

I'm from Michigan myself, Cleveland and Chicago feel like second homes to me (since I go there so much for conventions or concerts).  ;) I'm happy that Cleveland fans are finally getting another U2 concert since it's been a while since the last one (Vertigo tour maybe?).

Still crossing my fingers that Michigan will get U2 on the continuation of the I&E tour, but I'm not holding my breath on that one.

You speak the truth! Cedar Point is awesome. I'm actually toying with the idea of going there the day after the U2 concert, because how else can you top a U2 concert? Well, you can't, but Cedar Point is a pretty good substitute.  ;D Probably going to hit up the Rock Hall on Friday before the concert, too.

I'd love it if they opened up the new Little Caesars Arena (btw, hate that it's called that). I don't think they will, but it sure would be cool. I know the Joe is hated on for concerts, but I have many fond memories of concerts there and am sad to see it go.

They said a month ago on Kimmel that they would be doing a big US tour in 2017. So, hopefully sometime soon they'll announce it.

I'd like this as well, however it seems like they're thinking stadiums:

so let me get this straight, i've seen like 100+ club/theater/arena/stadium etc shows in about 20ish years. of those 100 FIVE have been <will be in the case of JT17> in stadiums....
Nsync in 01, U2 in 09 & 11, Coldplay in 16 and now U2 and <possibly> Metallica in 17?! 3 over 10 years and the next 3 in under 2? i'm not a big fan of those statistics...

Yeah, I know what you mean. I've lost count how many concerts I've seen (not as many as you, but probably somewhere close to 40-50 in the last 10 years) and, of those, 6 will be in stadiums by the end of this year (Paul McCartney in 2011 in a baseball stadium, U2 in 2009/2011 and possibly twice in 2016, One Direction in 2014, and Metallica this year). I prefer arena shows for their intimacy, plus you don't have to deal with the outside elements as you do at most stadium shows.

BTW, I was going to say something about you going to Nsync, then I remembered I got dragged to One Direction so I have no room to talk.  :P

I feel like scalpers are going to be a problem for the Metallica shows, too. :/

I've been to several festivals which are outdoor events, but not so many dedicated stadium concerts.  In fact I can only think of 3: U2, Oasis and Manic Street Preachers.  Oasis were a decent stadium act, but I wouldn't pay to see them outdoors again.  MSP were awful outdoors.  U2 are the only one that have been good enough for me to be prepared to pay to see them again play in the open-air.

Metallica is also in a genre with immense loyalty to bands (hard rock/metal). Don't get me wrong, the album is good, but metal fans tend to stick by their bands with fierce loyalty--other genres are a bit more fickle. It's not shocking that the album sold well and that they're able to tour stadiums behind it. Also, I'm going to guess that a good chunk of those fans attending are expecting to hear a lot of their old stuff mixed in with the new stuff. They're likely not going just for the new album.

true. but i mean the album is selling well and SOI didn't really do squat, unless im mistaken. i guess what i'm tryin to say is that Metallica's new album is a true return to form after a slew of crap albums <even i heard how bad Lulu was and i didn't give a rip about them at the time> and SOI didn't do that. I mean the fans know it's great but outside of us the general fans didnt really cared to hear those songs live, and i have a feeling HTSD's songs will be in high demand.

No, I completely agree with you there. SoI didn't sell very well (I think maybe 650,000 total), but I think a lot of that can be attributed to it being free to so many. What's the incentive to buy an album you already own? Even I as a big fan did not buy SoI until recently because it was always on my iPhone or Spotify.

I think a more fair comparison would be to NLOTH, U2's last "non-free" album. NLOTH sold 4-5 million, I believe. I haven't been keeping track of Metallica's new album, but I am guessing the album sales for that are a bit less. I know first week they sold something like 291,000 which is fantastic in today's music market. Even Death Magnetic sold something like 490,000 the first week in 2008; a year later in 2009, NLOTH sold 484,000 first week (and this was a full 1.5 years after the iPhone came out and online music purchases/streaming really started to take full effect). Overall, DM sold 2.5 million and NLOTH, arguably U2's weakest album, sold 4-5 million.

It'll be interesting to see how the public responds to SoE whenever that comes out. Still, it would not shock me to see that sell less than Metallica's new album. Again, it goes back to metal fan loyalty and the fact that many metal fans still buy CDs whereas more general music fans (pop/alt....sort of where U2 would fit in) tend to stream it through Spotify.

Still, Metallica's ability to sell as many units as they have in today's rough market is very impressive. I have no doubt that they'll be able to sell many stadium tickets. I don't know that they'll completely sell out stadiums (as even Guns could not do) but they should do well.

okay so Metallica did the nostalgia thing. but like i said, U2 would kill for a commercially relevant album to tour stadiums behind.

on a side note i'd love to have seen the Black nostalgia tour, had i been a European Metallica fan in 2012 i mean.

I have no issues with them doing that, either. Or any band, for that matter. So long as it's not an extended tour and they get back to touring new albums after that. Otherwise, they become a heritage act.

Had a blast at my first concert of the year (Alter Bridge). Met the band, went to soundcheck, had a front row spot right in front of their singer. Probably the best concert of theirs that I've been to, and I got even more excited when I realized that the next concert I'll likely be at is a U2 concert.  ;D

Adding another concert to the list: Queen + Adam Lambert are doing a show here in Michigan in July (2 days after Tom Petty). It's a must attend for me since I very much enjoy Queen's music and I've been a fan of Lambert's vocals for years now. He did a pretty sweet cover of "One", too.

Eh.  I know it's coming, and will be sometime after the first European leg.  It will just be a matter of deciding if I want to see a show close to home, or travel.  Last time I saw them in Brooklyn and fit in a long vacation weekend.  It was really fun, but I might not be as keen on travelling in colder months.

It really worked, I'm always nervous about gigs like this as it screams "we're our own cover band" but it was miles from that. Lambert was the perfect frontman, obviously flamboyant and energetic, but it was all about the songs. Taylor and May are a huge part of the setup obviously. I saw the first few songs due to taking snaps, then ran out, checked my camera and went back in to watch the rest of the show. The way they incorporated Mercury into the show, along with Lambert's voice being superb, was first class.

It actually for the first time made me think "wow, if Bono left U2 and the other lads wanted to somehow continue, it could be done if they found the right person". I know that's nuts but there are few more iconic frontmen that Freddie, and if Queen could do it with Lambert there is hope for others, even if the odds are slim.

Not saying I would want it to happen... but not every band that loses a frontman turns into INXS.

Nope, not yet. Like I said, I'm a new comer to their music and if they played MI in the past few years, it would have been when I was out of town. I'm definitely anxious to see'em.

Lambert was the perfect frontman, obviously flamboyant and energetic, but it was all about the songs. Taylor and May are a huge part of the setup obviously. I saw the first few songs due to taking snaps, then ran out, checked my camera and went back in to watch the rest of the show. The way they incorporated Mercury into the show, along with Lambert's voice being superb, was first class.

It actually for the first time made me think "wow, if Bono left U2 and the other lads wanted to somehow continue, it could be done if they found the right person". I know that's nuts but there are few more iconic frontmen that Freddie, and if Queen could do it with Lambert there is hope for others, even if the odds are slim.

Not saying I would want it to happen... but not every band that loses a frontman turns into INXS.

Yeah, I recently watched their performance of Bohemian Rhapsody from 2014 and loved how they worked Freddie into that. It was the perfect mix of new and old. I'm a fan of Lambert's and have seen him live solo, so I knew he had the vocal capability to pull it off. I was just doubtful about his ability to bring enough charisma to the role to make it believable. It seems like he's doing a great job of both.

You bring up an interesting point re: Bono. I don't want the guys to break up anytime soon, but I think if Bono were for some reason to quit, there's at least a few capable charismatic vocalists who could pull it off. Brandon Flowers is one I can think of who could, in theory, do well in the role.

The path INXS took really bums me out. They had some crazy good music in the 80s. It's a shame they couldn't find someone to properly carry the torch after Michael passed.

I honestly think their fanbase might have a more frustrating time than U2 fans do. We're used to constant delays at this point, but at least we know to expect an album every 5 years or so along with a tour every 3 years. Metallica fans had to wait 8 years between the 2008 album and the 2016 album. And now they have the agonizing wait of the tour announcement, something they've been talking about for over 6 months now.

Haha, I guess I'm feeling bad for them because U2 fans are (at least) getting a tour in 2017 and possibly an album.  ;)

My niece is getting to be a big 'tallica fan so she's especially anxious for some US tour dates.

In addition to U2, I made it to see Sons of the Silent Age, a phenomenal local Bowie tribute act. I also, just decided to buy tickets on a whim for Jean Michel Jarre, and my gf bought tickets for Sheila E/The Time. I'll probably like that about as much as she'll like JMJ. Oh well--it's nice to branch out and see new things.

Still waiting on Depeche Mode to announce US dates.

Rumor I heard repeatedly this weekend has DM's US tour announcement happening on Valentine's Day. Not at all sure about the source, though, so take that with a kilo of salt.

Eh.  I know it's coming, and will be sometime after the first European leg.  It will just be a matter of deciding if I want to see a show close to home, or travel.  Last time I saw them in Brooklyn and fit in a long vacation weekend.  It was really fun, but I might not be as keen on travelling in colder months.

I'm hoping it includes a MI date. I've only recently got into their music, but would love to see'em live.

Hoping so, too. They haven't played the Detroit area since autumn 2005.

I have to say, I'm very disappointed in the pricing of the tickets on this tour. Or at least the MI date, anyway. They're charging $160 for GA or seats on the lower level of the stands, $140 for seats, and $60-$70 for nose bleed seats. I am guessing this is because of the quality/popularity of the openers, but still. It's a lot of money. Either U2 are severely underpricing their GA tickets or other artists are trying to maximize profits by charging a fortune for tix.

def not GA for me. 140 is steep but this is now a bucketlist band for me, and i just plan on seeing them this one time more than likely.

Yeah, I'm not a huge fan but I enjoy a lot of their music and I like to see legendary bands/artists live at least once. Metallica fits into the legendary category for me. Still, it's hard for me to justify spending that much when I've already got at least a couple U2 concert trips planned, plus two other July concerts I'm going to be going to. I think it would be easier to decide if they weren't playing in a month that is already expensive/overpacked for me, lol.

I am glad I don't have such expensive tastes - apart from the Stones who I saw very many years ago and won't pay the prices they demand now.  Remember when Lars told the world he was "not greedy"?  He also said they charge what they do to put the money back into the shows, so expect this show to be twice as spectacular as U2 in the summer. 

Seriously, such prices mean you're pricing out all but your most affluent fans, which can't be great for gig atmosphere (or for the financially-excluded fans).

I think it might have something to do with the fact that James doesn't want to play more than 50 shows a year, so obviously they'd want to max out profit on the shows they do play to make up for that. As far as their stage show, lol. They will have a big screen and a pretty regular stage, that's about it. It won't be anything like what U2 have done since the 90s, nor should it be. With most rock shows, the name of the game is K.I.S.S. (no, not the god awful band who call themselves that): keep it simple stupid. A big stage show isn't needed.

And yeah, they are pricing out a lot of their fans. I've been seeing tons of complaints on Facebook about the ticket prices. Unless the opening bands are commanding a lot of money, this seems a lot like Metallica making a a huge cash grab. I feel if they really were not greedy (and wanted to do right by their fans) then they'd at least price GA cheaper. $100 is more reasonable, $160 is just excessive. You aren't the Stones, stop acting like your ticket prices should be as expensive as theirs.

Lars always said shutting down file sharing sites like Napster was about control and not money: Ive always had an incredibly aloof relationship with money. Like, when I didn't have any money, it was not anything that mattered to me. And now that we're fortunate to have some money, it doesn't really play a role in anything we do, it doesn't really play a role in anything I do. I don't sit there and look at my bank balances or count the money or sit there and micro-manage Metallica... 'If we do this, if we do this, or if we do this... It'll be 17 dollars...' None of that stuff happens at all. I mean, the great thing about being successful is, obviously, in the wake of that comes... It gives you freedom, it gives you freedom to not think about it, actually; that's the best thing. And it gives you freedom to, kind of, put as much money back into the shows...

The problem is that someone clearly has sat down and thought If we do this, if we do this itll be $160, and hes gone along with it.  The atmosphere in the GA are will be more muted and many keen fans simply wont be able to afford to go.

As you say, theyre a far inferior band to the Stones.  The Stones have not done much great material since 1972, but their first decade was so incredible that Id gladly hear them play stuff from that period all night long.

yea it's a high price but eff it. it's the one time ill see them and its my bday gift to myself, it's 6 days before my 36th lol.

the venues set the ticket prices though. lars isnt sitting there tryin to thinkin of what to charge per ticket to get rich.

just got my metallica ticket. $155 pre fees. but it's a good seat. 200 section

It's not Lars specifically, but it is the band's management that are deciding the ticket prices. Not the venues. I know this because I've seen ticket prices for other acts at these venues and they were considerably less...even big acts on Metallica's level. And I'd think that if Metallica were concerned about some real fans not being able to afford to see their favorite band in concert, then they'd insist on cheaper prices. I think U2's method of cheap GA and more expensive seating (but some cheap nose bleed seats) is a better way to do it since real fans on a budget can get GA tix or nose bleed seats and the richer fans can do GA or expensive close seats.

It just feels very excessive to me when I know what other bands who are on Metallica's level (or above it) charge for tickets. And I feel awful for fans who will not be able to see their favorite band because of those prices for even nose bleed seats.

As it stands, if they were my favorite band I would probably pay the price for tickets, but being a more casual fan who has to pick and choose between shows...it's no bueno.

Never seen any of them before, aside from U2. And it's about the most eclectic year for concerts I've ever had.

No, because my current sched - which seems to be staying in place for the foreseeable future - makes it really, really hard for me to attend shows on any night other than a Friday or Saturday. I'm in the Detroit area, and any DM weekend dates in this part of the country (Great Lakes region) will almost certainly be in either Chicago or Toronto.

Same! My niece was incredibly pumped to learn about this date since she has become a HUGE fan of Chris Cornell. I've always wanted to see him or Soundgarden live, so this is a good chance to do that. Just nervous about them potentially not having General Admission tix. I can't see a seated Soundgarden concert being as fun as one with a mosh pit.

More concerts have been added to my list for 2017:

Soundgarden + Pretty Reckless
Halestorm + Skillet

Possibly the Pixies since I hear they're doing a couple Michigan dates in the fall. I'm only recently getting into these guys so I'm not 100% on going. Also possibly Depeche Mode if they do a Michigan date.

I've never seen them live, but my experience with amphitheater shows in general has not been good. The best rock music shows I've been to have been either in stadiums GA or arenas/smaller venues GA. You don't typically have GA for amphitheater shows and not having that atmosphere definitely can make a concert feel very disengaging/boring. The show they're playing here in Michigan I'm a little skeptical of. They are playing a smaller venue, but they don't have GA (all seats). I think most rock bands would struggle to put on a great show in an amphitheater.

When possible, yes. GA is always my preference. If it's a band I still really like but can't get GA for, I'll settle for seats (like in the case of Pearl Jam a couple years ago...they put on a great show). I know some can't stand for that long, which is why I like U2's approach of some seats on the floor (Red Zone) and the rest being GA with seats in the stands. But as long as I'm able to do GA, I'm going to do GA.

Yeah.  I hate the venue they're playing in Chicago--I've seen them once there, but the last time my gf and I literally chose to fly to NY and see them there instead.  I'm not sure we'll want to do that again, so we may be stuck with the crappy venue here.  Ugh.  I wish they at least had VIP seats--I'd probably pay for them if I could be guaranteed seats up close.  We did that on the last tour, and had a spectacular time.

Yeah, different strokes for different folks.  :) I don't mind waiting if it guarantees me a spot in the first row or two and I have a super flexible job so getting time off is not an issue. Being front row at a concert and into the music with the crowd around you...there's nothing really like it. Standing does get old/painful, but I've learned how to make it bearable (comfy shoes and shifting weight). I'm sure there'll come a point where I physically can't do it anymore, but hopefully that's a long way off.

I mean, I look at this way: I can pay $90 and wait in line for 8 hours to be front row at a U2 concert. How else would I get to be front row for such a cheap price when other bands are charging double or triple that for floor seats?

Haha, that's funny. I went to a Pearl Jam concert a couple years ago and that was not my experience at all. They put on such a good show and were VERY into it. And they're on the same level of "grunge" as Soundgarden. Maybe Soundgarden have never been a live band who is particularly into it? Or maybe they were annoyed to not be the headliners? Not sure, but I'm expecting a good concert for the crazy prices they're charging for tickets on this tour.

yea the new one aint that great. and i didn't hear the Uno Dos Tre stuff. my favs are Nimrod, Warning and AI. but none of that mattered! that was whirlwind of energy. the only complaint was that he "played up" the audience to much or whatever you call it doing the call and response stuff. derailed a few songs for a few minutes to long but that hardly made the show bad. even gave his guitar to a young girl who knew how to play it during a song she was brought up on stage to play.

Added Tears for Fears/Hall and Oates.  This year is getting to be the biggest concert year (and most expensive for concerts) in a long, long time.

I had no idea that it had been a decade since they were last here (I was at that show). I guess they've done so many shows in the region - Grand Rapids (near Maynard's hometown) and Toledo, Ohio - that it just kinda feels like they've been here every couple of years or so.

edit: oh, and I forgot this - 2 local radio stations are saying that The Eagles are trying to recruit Vince Gill to step in for the late Glenn Frey. That would be a) so crazy it could actually work, and b) a massive upgrade at that position.

Wow, that's nuts. $80 for nosebleeds is steep, but I guess Sheeran is one of the few popular artists today who can charge that. I've heard his tickets are hard to come by, especially in Europe (dang scalpers).

yea i didn't think it would be *AS* big a deal here but yea he's the only "big name young artist" i've tried to see in years. 80 is stupid high but unfortunately i'm used to it. it's part of my wifes bday gift, the other part is Lionel Richie and Mariah Carey

Detroit's a Saturday night...in a venue that only holds 1,000. Can probably forget about getting tix for that.
I just  ordered tickets from venue website yesterday. Was surprised they were still available. You may be in luck if you try soon.

Just got tix for Depeche Mode, and managed to get decent (not great) seats without opting for the expensive VIP package.  So let's see:

The Time/Sheila E.
Jean-Michel Jarre
U2
Metallica
Depeche Mode

I'm also debating now on Hall & Oates/Tears for Fears.  This year is shaping up to be the biggest concert year for me in a while.
If you can get to Tears for Fears, DO IT! Saw them fairly recently at a small venue called Freedom Hill and they were incredible live...better than when I saw them in the 80's.

Tickets already bought. Seeing them and H&O on the same bill is kind of perfect. The only way it would be better is if it was a triple bill with Huey Lewis.

I missed out on Tool tickets, but I honestly might bite the bullet and pay Stubhub prices for that show.

They've also announced a few more dates, mostly in Canada.

I actually have. I saw the I+E tour in Toronto and I'm probably going back to see Metallica this summer. I have cousins that live in the area.

That Ontario show is sold out though too so there's not much of a point.

Was in Vegas for 4 days so wife and I wanted to see a few shows. Saw Zoomanity (an R-rated Cirque show) one night and the next night saw Rod Stewart at Ceasers Palace.

Old Rod isn't our favourite artist, and I was hoping Elton John would have been doing his residency at Ceasers, but Rod is there this month so we decided to go. Ends up it was a good choice to do so. He's a good performer and still has a decent voice. The show was solid, we knew all the songs, and his band was great. He can still boot a soccer ball to the back of the hall. Not bad for a guy over 70.

People love nostalgia!....

To be fair I am over it now - 2012 Heaton Park when it was THE big reunion was it....after that it's all down hill.

To be fair though the opening bars of Adored and the crowds mental reaction, absolute love mixed in with primal carnage was simply the most elecrtifying atmosphere I have ever been in at a gig - really was incredible.

Be quick though...
Nice!

Good luck if trying...

Not sure why anyone would want to pay megabucks to see them anymore, particularly as it's just them rehashing the same old.  But good luck with tickets for those who want to go.

People love nostalgia!....

To be fair I am over it now - 2012 Heaton Park when it was THE big reunion was it....after that it's all down hill.

To be fair though the opening bars of Adored and the crowds mental reaction, absolute love mixed in with primal carnage was simply the most elecrtifying atmosphere I have ever been in at a gig - really was incredible.
I get the "over it" sentiment but sometimes nostalgia can be fun, too! (JTT30 anyone?😜)

Nostalgia is ok...i meant i am over it in terms of the roses now....5 years ago it was great - now i am not bothered...

Same as i am not bothered about seeing this JT tour....now a Pop20 tour, well.....

The nice thing about them doing a Pop20 concert would be the chance to see them in such small venues!

I wouldn't worry about that if i was you... the lads told me it will be Europe only anyway...
HAHAHAHA!!!  I'd take POP over JT tour. AND I'd swim over if need be!   (Still gonna catch this one, though😜)

You and riffy can come over in il_capo's private jet.....Father Ted videos as the in flight entertainment.

Only slight worry is I am his pilot....
I'm in!

I like your style!

Last night, I saw Pittsburgh's own rising pop star Daya in concert. This was the last show of her tour and it was a great homecoming. I've listened to her album a couple of times, and it's a pretty solid pop album. She was incredible live, with a great stage presence.

Funny enough, one of my very good friends, who was filming the show, is cousins with her. His dad was working the merch booth.

(No, I didn't meet her, but that would have been cool)

Hope I survive Vancouver GA and get home in time. I'm taking my girls to this. It's my first Catfish concert of 2017! ♥ I like all on this list and some I LOVE! Going into the show, I care least about Fitz and The Tantrums. My youngest is a Jimmy Eat World fan. We have 2 PIT tickets and 2 good seats. I think I'll be in the seats this time.  ;)

Missio - The songs I've heard of theirs are good, diverse. One reminds me a bit of Radiohead, Deep Blue Sea or something like that.
Highly Suspect
♥♥ Catfish and The Bottlemen ♥♥ The Headliners of my ears and heart. Although after seeing KOL for the first time in January, I'm now a big fan.
Fitz and The Tantrums
Jimmy Eat World
Weezer
Kings of Leon

I don't think I'm familiar w/ the openers, Unlikely Candidates.

This summer's concert schedule promises to be as wonderfully hectic as 2015's! I'm ready for the crush!!  :)

Dude her 3 solo albums are 3 of my absolute favourite albums, will never get bored of them. Add to that the fact I also love P.s Eliot and The Ackleys (Her two previous bands) and I might be the biggest fan of Katie Crutchfield in existence. Also really like her twin sister's band, Swearin, and solo work.

Only the fact that Ben Curtis of Secret Machines was their drummer, that Brandon Curtis is apparently involved in their reunion tour.

Which bums me out, because I was recently listening to what few songs exist of Brandon's post-Secret Machines project, Cosmicide, and it is just STELLAR stuff.  He should be releasing an album and going on a tour in his own right, not as (yet again) a supporting member in someone else's band.

I don't know TD's stuff, though.

ok well 1 person has. so like the whole city is going nuts over this reunion show <or shows now i guess> over the psat week. i mean trust me im a gen-x alternative rock kid but they never did it for me. these were there two big hits they had 4 albums in the 90s then split up.

Oh, I remember "I Got a Girl"--had no idea it was them.  Never heard the other one.

Yeah, the fact Brandon has seemingly put his project on hold to do this seems like a waste to me.  Have you heard his songs as Cosmicide?  They'd have made a great new direction for Secret Machines.

To each their own, I suppose!  They just seem like another mid-90's band among dozens.  Maybe as a "local band makes it big" they'd be notable in the area, but I can't say I see the fuss otherwise.

Attended the first "big" show of the year on Monday: Hall & Oates and Tears For Fears.  I preferred TfF.  Daryl Hall can come off just a tad (or, extremely) smug, though it didn't really seem like either act were entirely thrilled to be there.  Glad I attended--my 11-year old self is happy now--but not sure I'll need to see either again.

Next up: Jean Michel Jarre, this Monday.

Wow, blast from the past. I grew up in Dallas during that time and I remember them. I have moved away, so hadn't heard they were reuniting. Hmm, interesting.

If you had tickets to either Fyre Fest or the Pemberton Festival (organizers just declared bankruptcy), said ticket will get you into Way Home Fest for free.

Also, I saw that Live Nation (I think) was offering a mega festival pass for $799. The pass will get you into any and all US fests that you can get to...well, at least the dozens of festivals that agreed to take part.

So, I went to see the Revolution last night in Detroit. Somewhat conflicted. Crowd was on fire! Detroit loves Prince and there were a few incredible dudes dressed like prince in various stages of "Princedom", as well as some other incredible fans dressed all in purple...huge purple Afros, etc. Crowd was singing, dAncing, having a blast.  The band was really tight and Wendy sounded awesome. The disappointing factor was at some point they brought a guy (local singer but I didn't catch his name) up on stage for various songs and he completely wrecked it for me.  Initially it was a fantastic show with a fantastic band paying tribute to someone they loved. Once that cat took the stage it reduced them to a mediocre Prince tribute band....even Wendy was looking at the guy a few times like,"tone it down, dude". Anyhow, JMO

Just saw Jean-Michel Jarre last night.  Wow.  Absolutely one of the most amazing light/laser shows I've ever seen, and I've seen Pink Floyd, Gilmour, and Waters.

If you have any interest in electronic music and live in the US, I highly recommend checking out his limited, first time EVER tour of the US.  It's a bit "ravey", but super cool.  I'm not convinced how much he was really "playing", but that's electronic music concerts for you.  Come on.  LASER HARP!!!

Muse was great as usual. Set list was meh but they put on a great show. Finally heard Plug in Baby which was the highlight of the night.

30 Seconds to Mars was boring. Each song sounded the same. Leto's guitar sounded horrible during The Kill.

Missed Pvris due to traffic. Pretty annoyed still.

Just decided to buy tickets to Roger Waters' newly-added 3rd show in Chicago.  Hearing him say this is likely his last tour, seeing photos of the set, and really enjoying his new album convinced me to pull the trigger.  This summer is probably the most expensive for concerts I've ever had.

I had U2 on Wednesday (see the Pittsburgh thread) and tonight I saw Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers. We had won tickets for the show and it was quite an entertaining one. But I have never seen so many adults get up for bathroom and beer runs during a show than I did tonight. It seriously happened during every song.

However, I did see a lot of (mostly counterfeit) U2 shirts from Wednesday night's concert. ;)

I went to see Big Daddy Weave a few months back, with the Outcry Tour being more recent.

Also, and I suppose the occasional music numbers make it count as a concert, but I recently saw Tim Hawkins as well.

Coming up, I've got my first U2 show ever coming up in Tampa on Wednesday, and then Paul McCartney in Tampa as well in early July.

After that, I suppose it depends on who comes here to Central Florida that I really want to see, but I plan on definitely upholding my annual tradition of seeing the Trans-Siberian Orchestra in December.

I picked up a counterfeit shirt online before the show mainly because I did not like the available options from U2's official store. But I more than made up for it by buying $80 worth of official shirts for family.  ;)

I just saw them last night.  Good show!  It was interesting attending a show that's sort of outside my wheelhouse, so to speak.  I felt a bit like a sociologist.  It's interesting how "tribal" rock shows are.

The IMAG screen was incredible, though.  I wonder if it's a similar resolution to U2's on their current tour.  Super-cool intro to One.

Booked for LCD Soundsystem at Alexandra Palace, don't really like that place as a venue (that final UK show they did there in 2010 was probably the worst show I saw them do, as much to do with the drunken/drugged up idiots in attendance as much as the venues organisation (or lack of)) but I don't have the funds to go and see them in Amsterdam or Paris so will make do with this - hopefully the weather will be OK for a Friday night in September.

I also got to see a local benefit show a few weeks ago, with Jason Mraz, Rob Thomas, Colbie Caillat, and Paul Williams. It was nice.

yea Foos have been on my bucket list for a while now, they don't play texas a lot unfortunately.

They certainly won't win any 'awards' for a diverse and eclectic set - and at times it crossed into cheesy territory how Grohl and Hawkins interacted with crowd but they were loose, very very powerful.....genuinely enjoying what they were doing - and it all just felt like a rock n roll show should feel rather than a tightly controlled and drilled run through of a 'show'.....the music was coming from the men on stage as well 100%....no piped in stuff, no backing tracks, no pre recorded stuff...

To have Grohl walk off and take over drumming duty and Hawkins come front of stage and play a bar band version of under pressure was a good example of the feel of the show.

Musically it was all a bit samey for me but their chops and ability to connect were impressive.

Honestly not being horrible on purpose but they sounded awful to me.....singer sounded out of tune in the mix and sound was muddy.

Performances seemed very flat to me - but beauty is in the eye of the beholder and all that!

That said Mr Brightside is a 100% crowd pleaser that just always illicits the biggest lift off from a crowd and it absolutely did here too - all these things i've done the same....in terms of songs that get crowd reactions i would imagine most bands would give their right arms for two like that - but for me still overall there is just something about killers that isn't quite there!

I saw Wolf Alice last night. They're an incredible band and they definitely delivered live, even on such a tiny stage. I briefly met Theo (the bassist) after; he was very cool.

Any idea which band's going on first? I have to blow off the Bent Knee gig that night because they won't be onstage until 11-ish, and I have to be up at 4:30 AM Wednesday. However...if E&tB are going on first, I just might be able to go see them and leave afterwards. Anyway, thanks.   :)

Guys, save your money and don't go see Roger Waters. The Pink Floyd cover bands are better. Brit Floyd put on the best show I've seen since... probably since I saw them last year.

Roger's The Wall Tour was the greatest concert I've ever been to. Therefore, I was extremely disappointed when he ruined some of my favorite songs. Roger is a self-righteous antisemitic grumpy old Englishmen who hasn't been relevant since he left Pink Floyd (who continued to do very well without him). He doesn't use any of the original videos except for one song, and all the new ones have the same theme. I felt like I was watching a segment from CNN on loop. It got old very quickly. His voice isn't suited for Wish You Were Here, and he should have had someone else sing it.

It doesn't matter if it's Hitler that you're bashing, I didn't pay $130 to stare at a politician on a video screen for half the concert.

half? dude...it was 20 minutes of a 3 hour concert at most. trust me. i have photos and videos and it was Pigs only.

i understand you got a bum show and i'm sorry his voice wasn't as strong as it was in Dallas 2 weeks ago, but it was a great show.

also, did you feel this way when you saw him on the Wall tour? "Roger is a self-righteous antisemitic grumpy old Englishmen who hasn't been relevant since he left Pink Floyd (who continued to do very well without him)"

I guess he took out a lot of the anti-Trump stuff for the Dallas show. In Atlanta, it was Picture This, Another Brick Part 2, Pigs (which itself is a fourth of the show) and Money. On top of that, he bashed the US with the Statue of Liberty on its side and footage from Desert Storm. And I believe there's Israel bashing with pictures of the wall they built. That is easily over half the show, and I'm not even counting the pictures of refuges because they're not hate-filled. Roger knows he can offend a lot of people because he already has their money, and there won't be another tour he can lose fans for. I'm okay with him writing songs about politics and religion, and I'm okay with him voicing his opinion once or twice. However, when somebody who isn't American shows any American leader with a small penis (I don't want to see a penis at all at a rock show) and builds the show around hate, that person has gone too far.

To be fair, the light show was incredible and his new songs actually sounded really good live.

Actually, I did think that about him during the Wall Tour. I've never liked Roger, only the music he wrote with Pink Floyd. I don't mind seeing somebody I think is a bad person as long as I enjoy the show. However, he let his radical hate-filled views control the show, and it suffered. He let his band sing David's parts and he sang his parts so his voice wasn't an issue for The Wall Tour. I'm glad your show was better, though!

Ok the show was political but it wasn't half trump only. and he showed your audience trumps....d**k? but you're right he was shown during Picture This. my mistake. PF didn't right happy music so i can see why you think it's angry. I def thought Wall was a lot angrier.

his guitarist was the Gilmour fill-in on this and the Wall tour.

Yeah.  And he's been doing it now for decades.  His new album takes aim at Trump at least 2 or 3 times.  What can I say, I tend to agree with him on that topic.

Oh yeah. I think she was probably about as abhorrent to folks on the left back then as Trump is now. (Or close, anyway.) I'm not terribly knowledgeable of her, either. The Falklands war was a big part of TFC, as was "Maggie" in general.

Detroit has been getting passed over more and more for many shows. Most bands have been doing Chicago/Cleveland/Toronto. Especially "smaller " acts. My biggest disappointment was The Waterboys doing "Fishermans Blues" a few years back. Grrrr.....

Oh, I have, and it SUCKSSSSS. Kraftwerk in 1990 (bought the entire 8th row and had them all sold to friends), when they cancelled the entire tour...and Massive Attack back in '05 or '06, when they decided to skip out on both Detroit and Montreal while still doing all the other dates.

Mariah Carey / Lionel Richie was tonight. Ok so i'm tired of the Divaness of Mariah but yknow what? She started 15 minutes EARLY, did NOT lip-sync and didn't just do old hits, she did a few recent songs too, so color me impressed. My wife is OBSESSED with her and this was her first Mariah show, she got some grief for standing in front of some of the people that were sitting but it was a good performance all around and my wife enjoyed it. She's not a charismatic woman i will say that.

Lionel. my GOD. THAT is a performer. An entertainer through and through and nearly 70 on top of it. I can't wait to see him tour again!

Wembley is just a suburb of London.

Yes. There's a Wembley stadium (the big one) and a Wembley arena next door (the smaller one).

Corporate naming rights on stadiums is something I really hate. I know it provides valuable sponsorship and all that but when they often change you tend to forget what was what.

In Melbourne for example you had colonial stadium which became Telstra dome, but then Sydney had a telstra stadium. It then became Etihad stadium, which there is another one of in Manchester.

Meanwhile in Sydney, stadium Australia, the Olympic stadium, became Telstra stadium. Then the Sydney football stadium became Aussie stadium. Olympic stadium became ANZ stadium. Meanwhile the Sydney football stadium changed its name to the Allianz stadium.

Confusing?

Frankly, I like that Wembley stadium is Wembley stadium and has been that way since built and rebuilt.

I dislike the corporate naming as well! Here in Detroit area  (for me) Pine Knob (DTE Energy Music Theater) will always be Pine Knob...The State Theater (now another "Filmore") will always be "The State".

And to make matters worse, Joe Louis Arena (The Joe) is being replaced by Little Caesars Arena. Yuck.

Officially, I think I'm down to just one more show in 2017: Depeche Mode, in late August.  Unofficially, I also plan to see A Flock of Seagulls at a local street festival in a couple of weeks, too.

I did see that Arcade Fire just added a Chicago date, but I'm not sure I need to see them.  Saw them once, on the Suburbs tour, and it was ok, but nothing terribly memorable.  And I just watched their show via live stream at Lollapalooza.  Very enjoyable, but I'm not sure I need to go in person.

Yes...sadly. Wish they would have named it after Gordie Howe.
Even "Illitch Arena" would have been nicer than yet another corporation name...

So far this year, I've seen:
Bon Jovi
Red Hot Chili Peppers
U2 (twice)
Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds (quite possibly the best show that I've ever seen)
Tears For Fears/Hall & Oates
The Lumineers (on their own tour; not opening for U2)
Patti Smith
Dropkick Murphys/Rancid

Sadly, I'll be missing Earth Wind & Fire tonight, though I am planning on scoring tickets for both Roger Waters and Bob Seger for next month, as soon as my paycheck drops tonight.

Ok. So this show was my son's first show that he picked to attend (he's been to several with me through the years). He is ten and Bruno Mars is a big deal in the land of middle school top forty radio listening kids! I've seen Bruno on award shows, Super Bowl, etc., and thought he was entertaining, but admittedly went to this show with somewhat low expectations. Boy was I mistaken!  Band was tight, his voice was on point, the crowd was very energetic and completely into it. This is a fully loaded entertainer. And this was a SHOW I would recommend to anyone.

That sounds about right, although ours were $100 each because a friend of mine (who also brought here daughter) joined the fan club to get in on the presale months ago.  Our seats were in the lower bowl kind of in the corner but the way the stage was set up we had no obstructed view whatsoever. His set was 17 of his songs and since it was a Detroit show, he also added "I Want You Back" by the Jackson 5.  On a VERY cool side note: he announced he was donating the proceeds from that shows tickets to the Flint Water Project to the tune of $1,000,000.00

Green Day is ridiculously great in concert. I couldn't believe the energy. It was up there with Pearl Jam as the most intense concert ive ever been too.

My friend was not really a GD fan and went for the first time last week.  She loved it and she liked my Catfish and The Bottlemen too.

Did Catfish open for your show? At Wrigley Field the other night Catfish only played 5 songs. That's more than disappointing! I'm wondering why.

Disappointed you missed it as well, but totally understand family stuff--that's what kept me away from U2 on the I&E tour.

I had been meaning to see DM since 2009 at least, but every time they came around before it just didn't work out for me to go. Glad it finally happened and now I'm kinda itching to see them again.

Recently back from a festival where I saw Lee Bains III & The Glory Fires.  They were really good rock & roll.  Lee Bains is an activist ('anti-Trump' warning required).  From Alabama.  Well I figured a band with a pun in their name would be a good one to watch...
Also saw:
Joanne Shaw Taylor (UK blues guitarist)
Dan Donovan (UK scuzz guitarist) - has recently recorded 12 songs from his back catalogue at Rancho de la Luna, Joshua Tree National Park with Jonny Quinn (Snow Patrol) & Dave Catching (EODM).  Has new track called 'Dawg Is' (another anti-Trump warning...)
Luke Sital-Singh
Grrrl - EDM/hip hop/rap women's supergroup.  These were excellent and consisted of Speech Debelle (UK), Lai Di Dai (Brazil), AWA (African Women Arise) (Zimbabwe), Wiyaala (Young Lioness of Africa) (Ghana), Nono Nkoane (South Africa), MABE (Venezuela) and Sohini Alam (Bangladesh).  The floor was great - I was dancing next to a load of openly Muslim people and also there were a whole range of people from different races and religions all as one dancing to this show.  Only bad thing was they only played a 50 minute set.
Remedy - hip hop in the style of RATM, Prodigy and Scroobius Pip.  But with lyrics about injustice. From Dublin.  From the Northside (the accents!).  Check them out on You Tube.

Saw some other stuff as well, but quite a lot of the time I was at talks as this was an arts and activist festival.  Including one by Alice Wroe about her wider Herstory project.  Inevitably the conversation turned to U2 (for what I think were possibly her first planned public comments on the project) So during Ultraviolet, Sister Rosetta Tharpe was put on the screen behind The Edge so he looked so small against her image because, as Alice put it, without Sister Rosetta there perhaps would not be The Edge.

The number of bands I see each year seems to be diminishing.  Next year, I guess I'm hoping Depeche Mode tours again--I still enjoy them after all these years, though I'm a bit burned out on some of the hits, same as U2.  It seems like the rumors indicate a new album and 2017 tour in the works.

I have never actually gotten to see Depeche live since they haven't been to Australia since 94. When each tour gets announced i always hope for Aussie dates... however i think i am now pretty much over it... Burned out from all the hits like you (via watching all the live dvd's).

I saw Depeche Mode a while back at Staples Center in Los Angeles CA. We were REALLY anticipating this show, as they have been known to put on a great concert, with LA being one of their biggest and best audiences. I believe Depeche Mode 101 was in LA.

It ended up being the worst concert I have ever attended, in every possible way. Everything non song/band related was bad including sound mix, visuals were boring and ineffective on any level. More important all of the band were flat in energy and playing and movement. Dave Gahan occasionally twirled around with the microphone stand a few times. NOTHING came from that stage. They were dead. This is an energetic and danceable band, and no one was up dancing or even mildly moving because it was so devoid of life. Instead of the band giving us energy, they seemed to suck the excitement out of the crowd.

I think Dave Gahan was just coming off the drugs at the time. A selfish part of me wished he hadn't, but I tried to put that thought away :)

I got tix to their upcoming show at end of month. I have faith and devotion they will come through and redeem that miserable concert that I try to forget.

Haha! Years ago I took my younger sister to see them in Detroit.it was a weird gig...triple bill with Jessica Simpson, Macy Gray, and Hanson was the headliner. Possibly one of the loudest shows. Ever. Thousands of screaming preteen/teenaged girls! I will say this, for another person (me) who only knew one song (yes, that song), I was surprised to catch  my foot tapping more than once. Give them huge props for being a teeny bopper band at that time who ctually played their own instruments and did it well.

Sorry the show was so disappointing for you! I can reassure you, though, that they put on a GREAT show nowadays. Dave was very energetic at our show and sounded great, Martin sounded great, audio overall was crisp, nice visuals accompanying many songs, great setlist (imo as a newcomer to Mode's music). I can't wait to see'em again.

Give them huge props for being a teeny bopper band at that time who ctually played their own instruments and did it well.

yea seriously. i did enjoy it all and even got a lil frustrated when my wife said she was ready to go, before the played MMMBop! she's preg but endured it.

Been a pretty good year for shows....actually a pretty good month of September....U2, Roger Waters, and Paul McCartney all this month.  All great shows....but different.  McCartney was fantastic.  3 hours/32 songs...Quarrymen/Beatles/Wings/Solo. What a catalog.  Really looking forward to my 2 remaining shows this year too.

Creed Bratton (actor in The Office/former member of The Grass Roots)
Aaron Rizzo (local, young and upcoming singer/songwriter....stream his stuff!)
U2 + Lumineers
U2 + One Republic
Spoon (Fantastic 2017 record....Hot Thoughts)
Kings of Leon (solid KOL)
U2 + Beck (Buffalo, best of the 3 I saw this year, Toronto/Cleveland being the others)
Roger Waters (Never saw any Pink Floyd shows, so this was very cool to see)
Paul McCartney (Epic)

Upcoming:
Arcade Fire (this live show should be good, some solid tracks on Everything Now)
The National (Love the new record, Sleep Well Beast....one of my favs for 2017)

Wouldn't you know it - Zola Jesus and Bent Knee are playing concerts at 2 different Detroit venues...on the same #@!#@!# Saturday night.

Yes! Zola's onstage about 10:15 PM, but Bent Knee doesn't go on until like 12:30 AM. Venues are about 6 miles apart - just might be able to hit them both!  :D  :D

Saw Arcade Fire in Miami last weekend and it was simply phenomenal!  Great mix of new and old tunes, lots of Regine dancing and crowd interaction, and the light show was something else.  Funny to see some echoes of PopMart with all of the sloganeering accompanying the Everything Now tracks and the boxing ring entry of the band onto the stage.  I got to bump boxing gloves with Will Butler as they headed onstage and met & shook hands with Win as he was watching the opener.  Put Your Money on Me, Creature Comfort, and We Don't Deserve Love are as strong as anything off Funeral or Neon Bible and were all electric live!

Thanks for that....I've seen them twice on past tours but this setup seems like a lot of fun. About a month away.

Only show I've got tickets for next year is Arcade Fire at Wembley Arena in April, I'm not a big fan of booking concerts best part of a year in advance.

I thought I was done with shows for the year, but why stop now?  Seeing LCD Soundsystem in a few weeks.  I had a somewhat unpleasant time the last time I saw them due to idiots in the crowd, but I'm gambling that staying toward the back of the venue should avoid them this time around.

Oh man, I wish!
Great show, though. Many songs from new album along with other solo material, a few Jam and Style Council. He's still got it and it's obvious he loves playing live. My third time seeing him and he hasn't disappointed either time. I'm really diggin' his voice now. A bit lower but still strong and rich.

How wonderful to get to so many shows!
Are you in the business in some way, or just fortunate to be able to do so?
( not trying to be forward/nosey... Mainly envious I am unable to do the same thing as much as I was able to in my younger/childless days😀)

Going to see Grandmaster Flash at Under The Bridge next month, it's an audiovisual show so there'll be something to see on screens rather than just seeing him spin discs.

Just looked at the setlist and he seems to have done more Style Council songs than Jam songs - which is something I approve of!  Having said that I am pleased he finished with the brilliant Town Called Malice.   He showed taste in selecting tracks from his back catalogue -  glad he avoided the Britpop era tracks like Wild Wood and Changing Man but did the classy Ever Changing Moods.

I saw Gogol Bordello last week; Bob Seeger the week before; and, both Black Joe Lewis & The Honeybears and Beats Antique the week before.

Gypsy punk; classic, soulful rock; funk/r&b/rocknroll; and, electronica with live musicianship, and a heavy influence from both Indian and Arabic music.

I have a friend who is a huge BJL&H fan, but we had to miss on the Ithaca show.  Where did you see them?  Can you provide a short review?

Saw Soulwax at the Roundhouse last week, maybe I had been spoiled by having a third row seat for their show at the Royal Festival Hall six months previously, but I thought the sound quality was pretty atrocious and left after 45 minutes or so - I thought Jarvis Cocker and Steve Mackeys DJ set prior to them coming on was far more entertaining (and no problems with the sound during that either)
