  1. Full list is in the events Facebook page discussion section: https://www.facebook.com/events/271395333563325/?ti=cl
  2. Listening right now: Every track is a smash to my ears.
  3. I love Zombie Zoo, so damn catchy. For me, A mind with a heart of its own and Makin' some noise. Although I recall the latter being loads of fun when I saw him live in 1992 in Birmingham.
  4. An interesting subject. Just wondering, what tracks do you not like on Full Moon Fever and Into The Great Wide Open? In my head both would have none, but I just listened and both have a track each that I could skip. Would be fun to compare.
  5. Not picky at all. Life's Been Good is entertaining, but way too long. Walk Away is just dull and Funk #49 is a bad song. Think of what they could have played instead! And I don't just mean that one, which obviously remains their best ever song.
  6. Yes: NY and POTR 1800 to 1945 Dylan 2030 to 2215
  7. I agree, that is a really nice set and definitely would make me want to see them again. Although maybe they could play Powderfinger 3 times and knock out Piece of Crap, as never has a song title been more appropriate! Although I saw the times for Hyde Park and both headliners are getting 1hr 45m each. So I would imagine that list would be slimmed down.
  8. The Cure at Glastonbury could be my favourite ever festival performance by anyone. And I am normally nothing more than a casual fan. It was perfect in every way and Bob's singing was so damn good..
  9. Exactly the same for me. My finger hovered over 'buy' for a while but I resisted. I see its no longer available now. Had I not got those two, I would have jumped in.
  10. Rattle & Hum is often mocked but there is an incredible album of songs in there. Heartland, Hawkmoon 269, Love Rescue Me, Angel of Harlem, All I want is You, God Part II, Desire. Had they instead worked that out to a standalone full new album, instead of including what were pretty pointless live songs and self indulgence then it would have been huge. They could have released Rattle and Hum as a standalone documentary/live album. Discounting those pants, Bad on Rattle and Hum is simply magnificent. Man, could he sing back then:
  11. I'm excited too. Finally we have a challenger for Born To Walk in the "GLOAAOTPATCYHA" awards. He has turned this into a one horse race for way too long. .
  12. The LP set has dropped below £70 on amazon UK, for anyone seeking a bargain : https://www.amazon.co.uk/Album-Collection-Vol-1987-1996-VINYL/dp/B07BLJDYVK
  13. This is just bizarre. Imagine Bruce kicking off The River tour once again. By all accounts, even the band were a bit bored with these songs towards the end last time out.
  14. To go with their Manchester gig in July, I grabbed a ticket for their Leeds gig in December yesterday. I actually really dislike the arena there but it's the only one I can do due to work. Not managed to hear the new one yet, but the reviews sound incredible. Plannig to sit down this evening and give it the attention it deserves. Their best for me are Trouble Will Find Me and High Violet.
  15. I never 'got' The Hold Steady as I always found them a bit hard work or I guess you could call it abrasive. This new solo album however is awesome. My album of the year so far.
  16. 100% agree!! If you look up best ever Glastonbury performances on line and Springsteen never features, which shows a definite missed opportunity As U2 did perfectly a year or so later, Glastonbury was a perfect opportunity to smash it by playing hit, after hit after hit. But he chose Seeds, Outlaw Pete and Hard Times Come Again No More. Instead of a walking on with an acoustic guitar to play a Joe Strummer song that nobody knew, imagine the impact had he done this:
  17. Those guys are great. I hope to catch them again soon.
  18. Inspired by the fake news elsewhere today... I have booked the following so far for 2019: 22nd January - J Mascis - Liverpool 24th January - Israel Nash - Manchester 3rd May - Josh Rouse/Grant Lee Phillips – Manchester 12th June - Wilco - Brussels 13th June - Wilco - Brussels 16th June - Wilco - Amsterdam 10th July - The National - Amsterdam
  19. re Neil Young. Promise of the Real as a banking band are incredible live (just ask Bradley Cooper!!) and they have certainly removed a lot of the slack and self-indulgence that he often had with Crazy Horse. They play rock and roll straight down the middle, with no bull shit and are absolutely brilliant at it. For that reason casual fans will really enjoy them. I would love to see them again:
  20. It looks like these two are doing a "tour". 16th July @ Nowlan Park in Kilkenny. It will need to come somewhere close to NW England for me to attend.
  21. It's about a 15 minute walk, but it would take so much longer with the crowds post gig, unless you left a few mins early.
  22. Plus Dylan sits alongside Ryan Adams on my 'never again' list.
  23. Yes, I am a huge NY fan and those last POTR dates I saw only increased that. They were magnificent. But I cannot justify such obscene prices, nor supporting corporate rock like this. Instead I am going to head to Holland and Belgium for a week in June. I will catch 3 Wilco shows and do some sightseeing, and probably have change left from what Hyde Park would cost me.
  24. Those would give you a nice gold circle view of the back of the heads of those even nicer £330 diamond circle folks. This note's for you Neiler:
