Porcupine Tree


Saw these guys two years ago without ever having heard a note of their music. They played "Dark Matter," I became a fan.

My "Luck" kicks in. Bought two sets of tickets for Genesis. First set was during pre sales, just to get in the door, they're decent seats. Second set, I went to the venue and got really good seats with the idea I could easily get rid of the first set. Genesis goes and adds a second show, only one of the tour. Can't get rid of my first set of tickets. :P

Thats great to hear. I have been a fan for a while now and have had the pleasure of interviewing and hanging out with steven wilson on many occasions. He really is a great guy, he loves the music, and is a great producer. He never stops working, he has so many side projects. The new album just came out in America, it's worth checking out. There is a 17 min track which is awesome. I have my tickets to see them when they come back to NY.

I went to Live Earth yesterday at Giant Stadium. It was OK if you could get passed all the political pro vegan stuff.  Roger Waters was great as always, Bon Jovi was much beter than the last time i saw him, the Smashing Pumpkins were as bad as i remember, and the Police were really not that great. Stong has this total worship me becuase i am honoring you just to be here vibe on stage. I am usually down for a jam but they turned Roxanne into this long drawn out thing that didnt work for me. Song selection wasnt great. The surprise of the day was Alicia Keys who looked great. She was wearing this little pink dress, very hot. She sounded great, a pleasant surprise.

Waters, as in Pink Floyd?  I'd kill to see that.  What did he play?

I saw Sting a couple years ago and thought he was OK, but kinda boring really.

Yay for crappy 80's glam-rock.

I had tickets to see Rush last night but due to my buddy getting stuck at work and god-awful traffic we didn't get there. Thankfully they were comp tickets so we didn't lose out on any $...

It was a short set at Live Earth, he did In the Flesh, Money, Us and Them, Eclipse and Another Brick in the Wall.

I saw him at MSG on the last tour and it was amazing, he did 2 sets. He did the entire Darkside of the moon the first set and them a bunch of random floyd stuff and a couple of solo tracks. I also had the pleasure of seeing David Gilmour when he played Radio City a feww weeks before Waters. Another amazing show with 2 sets. He did his entire new album and then a bunch of floyd stuff including echoes. I was blown away.

Ditto.

I was actually too afraid to admit it here, but seeing as Rob's already paved the way, I guess I can mention it.  I won't mention all the other 70's/80's arena rock bands and 80's metal and hair bands we've seen lately though, lest I get tarred and feathered by a few folks here.  I definitely didn't see REO Speedwagon at the Ventura County Fair last weekend either.  :-X

That's so funny. I was just out there on Wednesday, my Wife wanted to see a country act and I was thinking, why couldn't this be REO? :P

I just saw Rush last month. Next up, Genesis.

Went with the girlfriend to see Incubus the other night. It was an alright show, at least the seats were good, 6th row center.

I can't fathom to see Incubus now when I used to see them in clubs the size of people's basements back when they were good. They are amazingly talented musicians that have let being on the radio limit themselves. Such a shame...

Saw Rush a week ago last Friday.  Really good concert, 29 songs in 3 hours time.

i saw rush saturday.  i have seen them a bunch of times and was very pleased that they broke out quite a few songs i had never seen them do live before, or hadn't heard in a very long time.

they are a smart band recognizing that most of their audience are repeat customers and trying to mix it up so people will come out every time they tour.
