I'm in a seat one row up from the e stage. My buddy somehow got GA when tickets originally went on sale so he'll be prowling the floor.

I’ll wave to you - I plan on being easy to spot (consult the Philadelphia live thread for context) 😉

If the barricage is 12 o’clock on the e-stage, at what position will you be?

Good view from there of the whole band, esp., for The Edge and Adam. 👋

A fellow Zootopian suggested I listen to Greta Van Fleet while likening them to Led Zep..  I listened and liked them.  I just saw that they are coming to Summerfest on Sunday so that shall be my next concert.  I'd be watching Jethro tull right now but it was/is chaos anywhere near downtown Milwaukee.  Trump decided to visit for a couple days so he could yell at Harley Davidson for moving its European production to Europe (tariffs) while praising  North Korea for creating jobs....which we Wisconsin taxpayers gave them 3 billion dollars to do yet I still find comfort in knowing that at least one person is singing of  of a  creepy man eyeing females with bad intent. I know this is long.  I told myself I'd only mention any of this in one thread.  Ian Anderson probably just finished singing Aqualung and this is the thread to do it..

I went to see Steven Tyler instead and he was incredible.

Next one for me is tomorrow at BST Hyde Park in London! The Cure headlining in celebration of their 40th anniversary, plus Interpol, Goldfrapp, Editors and Slowdive.

HAVE FUN, and tell Robert Smith to come over here for the autumn! :lol: (I'm catching Interpol in a small club in Philly next month.)

My next show is Beck at MSG, NYC on the 19th - I can't wait! B)

Update - it was amazing. Really impressed by Slowdive and Goldfrapp for starters. Also pretty sure Justin Lockey, guitarist from Editors, saw me singing along during their set and saluted me. Fantastic show from them, looking forward to seeing them again in London in October, night after I see U2 actually. Interpol put in an amazing show as well - comparable to The National but more New York and with a bit more menace. 

And The Cure...well, opening straight off the bat with the first two tracks from Disintegration was always gonna be a good indicator, but I didn't realise just how incredible they'd actually be. Didn't know the words to all the songs but each one sounded incredible. 

Next one is a small show for me down in Brighton, seeing my friends Dove House and another really good local band called Peace In Protest.

Summerfest ended earlier with a Boz Scaggs concert.  I even saw The Fray, Borns and O.A.R. for free this year.  Next one is Dawes in September.  I need to change that.  I will be seeing Robin Pleuer, a local singer, who does Edith Piaf and is quite good.  It is for Bastille Days next weekend.

Interpol is very NYC and thrives on being menacing - well said! That's why I love them so much.

There was a nice write-up over here on the Cure show you saw - complete with clips. I hope they are touring over here soon. I had just come back from England two years ago, just as they were wrapping up their North American shows in 2016. I haven't seen them since the Curiosa festival back in 2004 and I'm ready to see them again!

I've never seen The Cure.  They are one of my must sees.  I hope they come here as well, dmway.  I once heard that Robert Smith does not like to fly and will only travel by ship.  Does anyone know if this is true?  It seems like a rock myth.  They could still make it to Milwaukee and Chicago by ship so no worries for me. It still seems like a myth and not fact.  Anyone know?  I would love to see them.  Opening to those two songs from Disintegration would make me crazy happy.

He flies - he just hates it! :lol:

Yes - really all of Disintegration is just heavenly.

 

Back on topic:

I'm seeing Beck today at MSG! B) I love seeing shows at MSG again...
