What concert are you seeing next?

Recommended Posts

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.

...and here was the setlist:

https://www.setlist.fm/setlist/beck/2018/madison-square-garden-new-york-ny-4bebfb76.html

 

What they left out in the encore was that each member of the band played an NYC-connected song - in addition to what was listed at the setlist site, they also played snippets of:

Walk On The Wild Side (Lou Reed)

Good Times (Chic)

Takin' It To The Streets (The Doobie Brothers - the keyboard player did a spot-on perfect impression of Michael McDonald)

Once In A Lifetime (Talking Heads)

 

This show was PHENOMENAL! If you can see it before it ends, do. (The new album "Colors" is incredible as well.)

I'm not rich enough to see U2 in concert...

Tickets prices got drastically reduced as shows in America approached.  Hopefully they will by you too.  The single seats were the first ones to get reduced...FYI.  I  hope you get to one.

I'm going to see the Chicago Symphony Orchestra at Ravinia.  I love seeing them at Ravinia.  Ten bucks to see the CSO?  I'd go every night if I could.

Tchaikovsky Festival then Gershwin Rhapsody in Blue (one of my favorite pieces of music) then Bernstein's Mass and then Beethoven's Fifth (which I've always missed and most excited to see)  I'm also going to see Milos Karadaglic (classical guitar-he is incredible)   I'm also going to see a show called, Considering Matthew Shephard at Ravinia....The Conspirare chorus explores the life and death of the gay martyr with a variety of poems set to music by Craig Hella Johnson to mark the 20th anniversary of the murder that spawned the Hate Crimes Act.

They'd need a lot more *POP* in the setlist too for me to be interested :MacphistoSignal:

So wrong for bands to operate in this way!  screw the people who are diehards and let the casuals in at a cheap price.
