£92 [gulp] though £60 seems to have been mentioned elsewhere
Wed May 22nd Manchester Arena
Fri May 24th London, O2 Arena
Sun May 26th Birmingham, LG Arena
Tues May 28th Sheffield, Motorpoint Arena
Thurs May 30th Glasgow, SECC
seems to be some sort of special London thing going on from tomorrow
edit although £92 isn't that shocking these days I have tickets for Cope,Spiritualized and Patti Smith that are less than that, or for slightly more Springsteen,Cope & Spiritualized
Never again. At least not until the investment in the sound quality matches the care taken over the visuals. I know Mooncat had a much better time than I did but to my ears it was a two hour drum solo with the rest of the band playing out back by the bins.
Did you get anywhere with that Spiritualized album?
last time I saw Rush, which was quite a while ago [Signals tour] the sound was spot on. I was chatting to a sound guy recently on a big arena show who said the sound was set up via a computer,lasers and test signals, basically you couldn't fuck it up if you tried, it even adjusted for empty hall/crowded hall so you'd think Rush could get it right
I'm quite enjoying the new Spiritualized, it is another good Spz cd and has a nice flow to it as though it has been given thought as a listening experience, not just a buch of tunes, gave the L&GWAFIS and the Albert Hall Cd a listen the other day and felt it if they were a 10 then it rated a 7.5. It seems a bit more of a 70s rock album than the usual 60s garage and he has dropped the gospel choirs, be interesting to see if they muscle it up a bit live, the last track 'So Long You Pretty Things' has a distinct 'jam/freakout ending' possibility IMHO.I've yet to see them anything less than stellar live so I'm looking forward to it, same band who did the LAG shows , let them off the leash it should be killer.
I'm probably over fond of them and willing to turn a blind eye to their faults but I rate the CD, not sure how many more they can make like this though, maybe if Jason could possibly stop dying every 5 minutes and learn some more chords besides Amin,C,G and the names Honey,Mary & Jesus his scope would be a little broader
