Well that was a very large slice of heaven. That's all I'm gonna say until after HG and I see them together in a couple of weeks. Then I'll have plenty to say.

Okay, I might have a thing or two to say before then but if I spoiler it, don't read it as it will actually be a spoiler and not an emoticon or something stupid.

Question for bollox about the opener:

 
So was that just a recording of Tim Hecker or was there a person behind that screen?!


Also for bollox re setlist:

 
Sorry you didn't get those two songs. There appeared to be a couple of moments of sound issues last night but no big deal. We did get both of those songs. I too was going to be bummed if we didn't get Glosoli. I'll post the setlist when I find it.

It was just an incredibly gorgeous performance. Really different than the last tour with all the extras onstage. I did miss Kjartan and it seemed like it took two or three people to replace him. I missed him as a powerful presence onstage but it was still of course just stunning.

Hey Joyful, glad you got an awesome show!

 
Ya know, I couldn't even tell you if he was onstage, I didn't see anybody up there.


In a general non-spoilery sense, I did not care for Tim Hecker as an opener. I understand the cognitive dissonance of an ambient electronic artist playing a massive sports arena is kinda cool, but it felt a bit like a prank. I'd be interested in checking out his music further, but when I'm alone with a pair of headphones.

 
Glad to hear they worked out the glitches. Glosoli is one of my favorite tunes by them and I didn't get to hear it when I saw them last summer (did get Festival tho). And it's not like it's a rarity, they've been playing it most shows! Yea I know #firstworldproblems

I couldn't tell either but I assumed so. And thanks for the Pitchfork link. Awesome.

I've got two more copies of the EP from tickets to forward. PM me an email.

Edit: That was quick. Go nuts, Cori and Niels.

I saw them this week up here in Canada. First time seeing them.

Easily one of the best concerts I've been to. It was simply magical. The intensity of emotions that they can conjure up in a live setting is simply astounding. They played a nice mix from their previous albums, I was quite pleased with the setlist.

Oh, and the new material is terrific, I'm looking forward to the album release!
