In less than a month, the U2 concert that I bought tickets for in November of 2009 will finally be taking place at the New Meadowlands Stadium in East Rutherford, NJ. Finally!!

I went to tons of shows each of the last several years, but surprisingly I haven't gotten around to any this year.

Hoping my schedule works out so I can catch a Foster the People show. Maybe the Foo Fighters (we'll see once the rest of their schedule is released next week). And of course if Radiohead ever announces their King of Limbs tour...

So things seem to be picking up for late summer, and I hope that continues into fall to make up for the lack of (non-U2) shows earlier in the year. Just picked up this week:

September 18 - Coldplay, Richard Ashcroft, others @ TAKLiberty Festival, New Jersey
September 25 - Elbow, NYC

Coldplay better not make me regret that...

Newly added show for me tonight!

Incubus - At their pop-up store in LA. They are playing one of their albums front to back. Rumor has it it will be S.C.I.E.N.C.E. That would be epic.

Prob not to be on here but I spent a day at Oxegen Festival on Sat there, because of the Foo Fighters (yes, I love them, I fancy Dave Grohl and little Tayler - but I do love RHCP a little more, lol), and got to see a little of 2 Door Cinema Club, Deadmau5, Plan B, Beady Eye, Arctic Monkeys.

Sadly we left 5 songs before Foo finished, I actually waited to hear Best of You before leaving at all cause I was hoping the crowd would be amazing at the Yooooooooooooooooooooooooooooou solo, like their gig at Wembley, but the crowd fucking sucked at it , cant believe I missed Wheels and Times Like These, just to get coach back to car and get drivin home to avoid long queues in the coooooooold.


I had a great time regardless, still cant believe I saw Foo in the flesh, I could see Dave and Tyler on the stage, and Dave is so awesome and charming with the crowd, I just love how he interacts and Taylor and him have beautiful smile , but the worst thing was, we were at the barrier break for Beady Eye, and unfort had to leave at Arctics due to heavy crowd pushers and punches in back of head, expected at festivals but better if you can join in if you like the band - otherwise I would have seen Dave Grohl a LOT better/closer up about 3 hours later, and THAT would have been amazing and pure luck!!!!! ah well. LOL.

this would be the point where i'd say well shit, i haven't actually gone to any of the shows that i said i was psyched about earlier in this thread, because the last time i went anywhere to see any band play was technically last year. but i haven't even posted in here. i'm still worried about my apparent lack of interest in seeing really anyone live anymore, or want to go see various bands but absolutely loathe the idea of being there. i'm not sure exactly what it is, to be honest. but it bums me out even more that i'm feeling this way, because going back about 5 years ago going to shows was one of the few things i'd say i really, really enjoyed doing. it doesn't do that for me anymore, and worse is the fact that i can't really pinpoint when or why this happened.

maybe it's as simple as i needed a break from seeing the same bands over and over. and once i stop moping about it, i'll get over it. perhaps i will go see the hudson falcons in the near future (if i can find out if/when they're playing in boston, and if that hasn't already happened or something). i think there's a song title-related lame joke in that i am waiting for a friend of mine to get back to me on whether he wants to go to see the national in boston in september, but i will refrain from making that joke. or maybe i just did.

and then there's :

day 1:Cockney Rejects / Sheer Terror
Evil Conduct / Forced Reality
Control / Pist N Broke / Dog Company
Hub City Stompers / The Krays / COA
Youthful Offenders / Razors In The Night
Bloodshot Hooligans / The Deacons

day 2:
Slaughter The Dogs / The Business
Red Alert / Patriot
The Gonads / The Glory
Immortal Discipline / Broken Heroes
Traditionals / Brassknuckle Boys
The Uprisers / Murderer's Row
Yellow Stiches / Chosen Ones
The Gestalts

which honestly, i am having a very difficult time believing will happen as announced (knowing the history of certain bands listed there, it's all but impossible to expect that everyone will show up. which, for the city of hartford, might be a good thing because i'm not sure it wouldn't simply destroy), but those bills look incredible.

hmm...and opeth and katatonia later in september, that could turn out to be a good month. except that while i'm all psyched about it now, and on paper (well, computer screne, i guess if you wanna get all technical about it) it sounds fantastic, once the day comes around i'm going to despise the idea of actually getting in my car and driving to stand in a crowd of people for a couple hours.
