Depeche Mode, Sun. June 3, Philadelphia ?

DM have gone very political this time around - I think I have heard U2 (and other bands) playing this song before the shows:

Depeche Mode for me, too!  I have thought of starting a thread something along the lines of "Does any other band even come close, live?" I am a one-band girl, for the most part, but I have always really liked Depeche Mode and have heard that their live shows and fans are the only thing that rival U2 in terms of fan adoration...so I'm going to their Boston show on June 9!  First time ever seeing them!  4th arena show ever in my life beyond U2!  (Others were Grateful Dead so many years ago....Paul Simon even more years ago...and Arcade Fire last fall.)  So anyway, DM is my only other show besides U2 this year.  I'm excited.  Arcade Fire last fall were great. Honestly, their physical energy on stage made U2 look like they play their shows in a coma! But for me the experience was a tiny fraction of the luminous, transcendent experience of a U2 show.  The only two live shows that ever came close for me were Rusted Root in the 90s and Arrested Development at a tiny venue in Cambridge, MA in 2003.   I'd love to see Foster the People sometime. I couldn't get to their Cambridge show this past fall....and, oh my goodness, I just looked and saw that they are playing in my home state, NH, this summer!  But it's the night before the first Boston show and I will be down in MA, doing the hardcore GA queue thing!  Aargh!  Hopefully I'll get to see them soon. 

Will this be your first time seeing DM, dmway?  Wait, does the DM in your screen name have to do with Depeche Mode?

Taylor Swift

I thought her tickets were impossible to get - do you have a connection?

I'm seeing The Head and the Heart tomorrow; Imagine Dragons opening night of Summerfest later in June; Kesha and O.A.R. and a buch of others at side stages for Summerfest  (11 days of music)  Stereophonics on 9/11.  Elton John in October.  Radiohead both nights in January..  Hoping to see ELO with Dawes as the opening act which segues into Dawes releasing a new album June 22.  When they headline, I'm at every show in any bordering state. There are so many great acts/shows touring or going to tour.  I think Kesha and O.A.R. are days I can get into Summerfest for free if I/we donate food to the pantries and such.  Even if not-$18 gets you in the main gate and there are over a dozen side stages in addition to the major ampitheatre where you pay less than the same act in other cities.  Lady Gaga was $300 in Chicago.  For Sumerfest, all they charged was $95. In two weeks there will be fireworks from Thursday thru Sunday for every weekend until September. I'll be seeing many free jazz concerts.  I'm also going to Ravinia to see The Chicago Symphony Orchestra do the 1812 Overture with cannons-along with several other classical concerts.  Most are ten bucks.  The CSO is $25 for the best seats and ten bucks for all others which are lawn and you can bring a picnic and bottles of wine.  There's so much live music ahead that I can't remember it all.  Ten bucks for the CSO under the stars?  Lots and lots of shows, doc,  Stereophonics is the one that has me most excited. The 1812 with cannons is pretty cool too.

I wish I was going to Depeche Mode.  I might be able to squeeze in Ed Sheeran but he's at a baseball park.  The closest seats are so far away from the stage because they need to protect the field.  I'm probably gonna skip him which is sad because he's very reasonable considering how huge he is.

That's a great selection of shows! I remember when Stereophonics opened for U2 - I enjoyed their set.

I love outdoor classical shows too. When I still lived in NJ, I would sometimes come up to NYC for those - they had many across the city, especially near/at the museums.

My next two months are chock full of shows (at the moment, just the 2 U2 shows, but I am doing my best to double that amount); however, I'm going to be a big tease and make everyone wait for the progressive revelations of them... ? ?

Yes, shows at baseball parks are a bit unusual in their seating; I prefer ones in football/soccer stadiums.

I think Ed would love to see you - maybe you should go anyway. ?
