^ Yes.
Then, as long as had my card out, I ordered the book.

Because he's doing two shows at most venues, that'll mean an interesting set difference, hopefully.

I saw Jethro Tull a few weeks ago. Ian is still a good entertainer :-) Last friday John Cale played at the fantastic Elbphilharmonie Hamburg. What a great show and what a great place.

Next shows:

The Residents in Essen
Steven Wilson in Bochum
Bob Dylan in Braunschweig (Brunswick)
Steve Hackett in Essen
Rammstein in Gelsenkirchen

Joe Jackson - March 3rd, Crest Theater Sacramento.

I might wait awhile before I pull the trigger on this but it’s definitely on my radar. New album dropping in early 2019 too.

I waited too long. It’s sold out.

Last night Mrs. Flycoon and I saw Patti Smith. Fortunately (since it was raining with great gusto) she stopped just short of blowing the roof off the joint.

I posted a photo of the proceedings in the appropriott picture-posting place.

Next Friday we'll be seeing the Levin Brothers (Tony and Pete) playing Jazz at a steak house in Felton. Tony's taking time off from his duties with King Crimson, Peter Gabriel and Stick Men because he just doesn't work enough. They'll be playing with Soft Machine; another one of those bands from the past that I figured I would never get the chance to see.

On March 5th we'll be seeing the Wood Brothers. Oddly, the last time we saw them was on March 5th of last year. Apparently, instead of doing tours they follow a migratory pattern...

Wow Patti Smith excellent!

approaching at an alarming rate, Ozzy Osbourne March 16th

Just Announced Fleetwood Mac, September 16th and 19th ticket pre pre sale(s) on January 22nd, so five days to decide on one or both....It will be a beautiful thing to see Neil Finn and Mike Campbell, apparently they've been performing one or two Crowded House and Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers songs.....and yes, they're playing Spark Arena in the hell hole that is Auckland.....Spark the company that has the naming rights to the Arena are my phone provider so we get to spend our money in the pre pre sale.....

I'm hoping Nick Mason will find his way down to Australasia, I wouldn't hesitate to travel to a foreign land.....in the Southern hemisphere, don't want to risk being too close to the epicenter if someone goes crazy.....

Tomorrow night...

If you have come to experience Talking Heads . . . This Must Be The Place.

BiG SUiT is a collective of nine musicians drawn to the cerebral adventures, infectious rhythms, and pioneering music known to the world as Talking Heads. BiG SUiT began when a Chicago-area producer reached out to Deacon Blues founder Steve Kikoen with a request to form a tribute to Talking Heads.

With enormous respect and admiration for David Byrne, Tina Weymouth, Chris Franz and Jerry Harrison, the idea of forming a tribute to these musical innovators was intriguing. Steve proceeded to put together what has ultimately become an amazing replication of Talking Heads.

BiG SUiT, inspired by the seminal Jonathan Demme/Talking Heads film “Stop Making Sense,” is additionally dedicated to all ancillary forms of the Heads, including the David Byrne & St. Vincent (Annie Clark) collaboration, as well as connections to Peter Gabriel, Afro Celt Sound System, and WOMAD (Gabriel’s World of Music, Arts, and Dance) institution.

Frontman Jason Krause brings an astonishing take on David Byrne. From the eye-catching and flamboyant routines of dancer/singers Jennifer Hall & Jessica Hornsten to the incredible percussion and afro-celt rhythm section of Phil Brines, Janis Wallin, and Megan Thomas, this tribute to Talking Heads is the real deal. Rounding out the personnel are Paul Mutzabaugh & Cash Michaels on keyboards and EWI (Electronic Wind Instrument) respectively; with all of the “SUiTS” under the direction of Steve Kikoen, guitarist for BiG SUiT and founder/guitarist/singer of Deacon Blues.

Madonna anyone? My son’s playing in this ensemble that is doing this Madonna tribute at the big college theater this weekend. I’m going to opening night tonight. I imagine he will be playing a lot of keyboards. Hopefully they will let him wear his underwear on the inside of his pants. :lol:

They actually brought a full choir (15 members) out for that one to augment the lead vocalist and a vocal quartet that was part of the band. The band consisted of 19 members including the vocal quartet. Instrumentalists included four reed players, a five piece horn section (trumpets, french horn, trombones), Guitar, bass, two percussionists, and two keyboards (my son being keyboard 2). Different lead vocalist, duo, octet, or choir for each of the 18 songs. Seven dancers. Quite a production with some of the best local musicians.

Ozzy would be fun to see. JP too. Sounds like another excuse to visit the hellhole which is Auckland.

Ozzy is not well. He had surgery on his hand. An infection is keeping him in the hospital, they say. The rest of the US Tour has been cancelled.

Got well soon, Ozzy!



+ one, I've already sprung for the Ozzy tickets and (the non refundable) hell hole hotel.....

Locally they have announced an Australian and New Zealand Eminem tour for 2019, it's being advertised as the biggest thing to ever come to Wellington (they must be joking) I could be totally wrong but I suspect the ticket sales will fail to reach the money making level and the show will be cancelled, or the tickets will be heavily discounted to fill the stadium.
I'm not an Eminemist, so won't be going.....
Ghostman, Ozzy is sick with the flu. Doctor says no touring until his upper resp. infection is gone. Europe w/ Judas Priest is cancelled. Hopefully not NZ.

edit They say he will be ready for Australia and NZ. :!: :mrgreen:

^^^^^ thhti Auckland March 16th.....Get well soon Ozzy! ^^^^^

Ozzy or not I'll still travel to the hell hole in March if only to check out their record and musical instrument shops and maybe, if I'm really lucky I'll get the royal treatment from the Maldivian princess.....

Nick Mason's Los Angeles shows will have support.

Get Cape, Wear Cap, Fly is an English musician.

I wonder if his music is lifting?

My wife told Napoleon that she loves his voice to which Napoleon quickly replied "Its better now" the guy still has it.
They announced that Denny was playing the same guitar that he played on the actual BF album to which Denny replied "and its still got the same strings"
