So Southern California people, there will be more shows Thursday, Friday and Saturday of next week. My best guess is tickets on sale Tuesday.

Oh and here is some video of Whole Lotta Love I took.

YouTube - Whole Lotta Love - Prince with Nikka Costa Live from the Forum 4/30/11

Have you sold your U2 tickets yet, or are you waiting to see if they play what you want them to play in Mexico and Denver?

You complain about setlist decisions far too much to roll your eyes at me.

I'm not alone in thinking they've made a lot of poor decisions on this tour.

I certainly have a right to criticize them, and if I thought I was getting a too-identical-to-2009 setlist (or one filled with ATYCLC songs replacing some good No Net ones) instead of one with new songs from an album that never materialized, I think it's perfectly rational to not want to go to both shows. Or either show for that matter.

It was really encouraging to see things like EBTTRT and Zooropa thrown in at the end of the South American tour.

When you're rational and thoughtful, you make more sense. I think you let yourself get carried away with complaining.

Can you just enjoy a concert, without thinking of what might be the "perfect setlist" and how tonight isn't? Maybe some poor decisions were made, but it's still a great time, isn't it? What's the point of going to concerts if all you can think about is what songs weren't performed? I've wished certain songs were played at many concerts I've been to, but I was still able to somehow enjoy the night and the music.

It was, which is why I'm still likely to go.

But I'd still rather see fresh material. Unfortunately, the album was shelved, and the new songs debuted on the last leg pretty much all sucked, including the desecration of an unreleased song I wanted to hear more than anything else, ever.

Martha, if I was going to only one show on a tour, then I would be happy with whatever and dont have this anhedonia you're implying. But when you're paying to see multiple nights, especially with Shuttlecock, then it gets old quickly. For me. I understand that we have many people who feel privileged to bask in the glory of Shuttlecock again and again without reservation, but that's extremism to me.

I feel the opposite: I am only going to one show, so I want the very best setlist for that night. I might never see them again, who knows.

And that's one more way the internet has fucked everything up. Now you all "know what you're missing" and somehow feel you've missed out. You feel you're owed the perfect setlist, and there'll be hell to pay if it's not just what you've hoped for and dreamed of.

Why even go when there's such a chance of disappointment?

I still enjoy nearly every concert I go to; the exceptions are when the musicianship is poor, or the crowd is unruly or disinterested.

Just because I would like a better setlist doesn't mean I'm not going to enjoy it, as I've said over and over again.

If I were going to just one show, I'd want to enjoy it, no matter the set list.

1999 has grown on me exponentially. I don't remember being too thrilled about the album on first listen...it seemed really bloated and strangely cold, but the melodies really stood out on this listen. I do think the album is about 10 minutes and two tracks too long, but it never really gets boring. If there's a flaw, it's that the synthesizers keep the music a bit too rigid, limiting the funk somewhat. But Automatic manages to be basically perfect at 9 minutes, so I can't complain too much.
