Got a feeling myself this could be their final gig.
The plan if for them is to have a couple of years off and then come back for what Nicky Wire called the last phase of their career.
Well, Diego.4x tickets worked out at £214 once fees have been applied.So that's £53.50 per ticket! On the plus side, I'm going!!
I'm very jealous but must admit, I'd be a little disappointed that 'Release' wasn't on that list.
Went to see Pearl Jam in Manchester last night. A lot of singers start to lose their voice over time (Chris Cornell, Axl Rose etc) but Eddie Vedder still sounds the same as he did 15 years ago, absolutely amazing.It was the first song of the set last night Here is the full setlist:http://www.setlist.fm/setlist/pearl-jam/2012/manchester-arena-manchester-england-2bdf1c76.htmlAs an added bonus, there were limited edition prints for sale for this date only by one of my favourite artists, Jeoff Soto. I was determined not to buy any merch but the missus treated me to this as I originally bought the tickets and drove this time. It's a proper print (you can feel the raised print) on thick, heavy paper. Well chuffed.
Brilliant mate, yeah. I'll admit there were a couple of very long instrumentals (one in the middle of Even Flow) which were a bit self-indulgent but other than that, faultless. Glad they played Release first, it was easier to take that way, I didn't cry or anything haha. The other tracks from Ten all went down particularly well with the entire crowd singing along, he may as well have let us lot sing Black!The missus is into sh*t music usually and her last concert was Westlife(!!) so I don't think she really knew what to expect, even though I'd played her plenty of PJ. She was gobsmacked by Vedder's voice.
You ok now?
Ahhm... no, not really!
Wanted to go to both but just couldn't afford it.
"I was actually offered a ticket for the concert but I turned it down as I'm not a big fan of the Foo Fighters but I still managed to hear the entire thing.
Not sure if I mentioned it on here or not.
I've been in some pretty mental moshpits for bands such as Biohazard and Sick of it All and come out battered and bruised from flailing elbows, feet and fists but he's right, there is a mutual respect in there and you look after each other. If someone is deliberately being a dick then he's soon made aware of it!
I have the impression that people in punk concerts are much friendlier - if not funnier - than those all dressed in black trying to look mean in metal gigs
Off to catch The Foos, Black Keys and Cribs shortly... tomorrow it's The Stone Roses. Sweet.
On the subject of concerts I've noticed at the last few I've been to the amount of people filming it on their mobiles instead of just enjoying it and it baffles me a bit.
Saw Linkin Park and Incubus last night at Cricket Wireless Amphitheater in South San Diego.
