Who's going?

Will the russian dolls be there?

Rarities on the set?

If the Russian dolls aren't there, I'm not interested.

If only the music wasn't so bad in 2019, I'd definitely go, but the music is so poor.

They definitely need some good new music to energize the vibe a bit. But I suppose the truth is that 90-95% of the concert attendees just wanna hear the hits.

It's funny, I was reading Rolling Stone magazine from a month or 2 ago and they had a page about 90's nostalgia double-bill tours and they had a blurb saying something like Billy and the band are finally content to focus on the past!

I also learned from thhe article that Bush and Live and Hootie and the Blowfish and Barenaked Ladies are going on tours haha

Or anything but new songs tbh. Not my stance, but I'm going to see one of the US shows with coworkers, and they don't seem to care much what is played as long as it's pre 2008 SP material.

I had a blast at the Berlin gig, and while the setlist choice had only a few songs I wanted to hear again, it didn't matter in the end, they just sound fantastic currently. As far as energizing the vibe goes, the newest songs were the only ones where the crowd wasn't fully into it because they never heard them nor cared to hear them, so if you want to de-energize the vibe, some Shiny songs on the setlist will do just that.

it gets even worse - I had a blast completely sober

where is the shame corner? I'm gonna stand in it and not give a fuck, because every memory a pedal

speaking of, I'd love to hear Shame, wouldn't that be nice.

I'm simply ready to embrace that I belong in the camp of aged concert goers seeking comfort above action, and hearing SP is comfort. Heck, the last concert I went to was an orchestra playing West Side Story while the film was shown - on a lawn while having picknicks, okay. I'm officially 70, SP is right up my alley.

yeah i think so long as you actually respect the band (it's not some one-hit wonder you're going see "ironically" or whatev) you'll enjoy the majority of a show provided it doesn't suck. i saw Nine Inch Nails before I even actively listened to them and thought it was cool as hell. of course SP are a lot different but I don't think yer gonna lose a casual fan by playing "Hummer"

some of the newer stuff tho, let's just say "Run2Pee" earned its title during those '15 shows

That's the hard thing whenever I'm sober for any period of time, it's like "how in the hell am I gonna go to a concert sober".

but then again, drugs

also, there's no fun in going to a concert an not suddenly needing the loo after only two songs, and then debating whether you should try to hold it in till the end of the show, or pick the right song to go for a wee (and another beer). 1979, anyone?

two weeks ago i went to a festival and i went to stand in the front for this one band, expecting to need the toilet after three songs, and prepared to leave my prime spot if that would happen. (i wouldn't be able to return to it. too many people.)
to my surprise i didn't need to piss at all. two songs before the end of the show, i decided to leave anyway, because i had gotten really, really thirsty.

I've been sober for most of the gigs I went to in the past 15 years and enjoy it a lot more. Prior to that I have ticket stubs of concerts but no recollection of attending.

And yeah with my bladder, I could never drink and go to a concert, not unless I stand way back by the toilet.

Smoking is hard too, these days. So my solution has been edibles/weed milk. As they say in France, "Whallah!"
