No fucking air conditioning down there, just a couple ratty old fans, but they could get wireless internet.

I did love his "Ode to Fuck" (as I call it) a few days ago though.


Looks as if Europe is going to get quite a nice little tour in April. Electric too.

Thursday April 12 Budapest HUNGARY - Godor Klub
Friday April 13 Vienna AUSTRIA - Club Szene
Saturday April 14 Zagreb CROATIA - PAUK
Sunday April 15 Belgrade SERBIA - Dom Omladine
Tuesday April 17 Prague CZECH REPUBLIC - Futurum MusicBar
Wednesday April 18 Berlin GERMANY - Quasimodo
Thursday April 19 Krefeld GERMANY - Kulturfabrik
Friday April 20 Amsterdam NETHERLANDS - Paradiso
Saturday April 21 Utrecht NETHERLANDS - EKKO
Monday April 23 Arhus DENMARK - Voxhall
Tuesday April 24 Malmo SWEDEN - Kulturbolaget
Wednesday April 25 Copenhagen DENMARK - Vega
Thursday April 26 Hamburg GERMANY - Knust
Saturday April 28 Brighton UK - Concorde2
Monday April 30 London UK - Carling Academy Islington

Considering that a year or two ago it really looked as if they wouldn't be playing much in Europe any more, this is especially good to see. I just hope it bodes well for further US and Aussie tours this year too.

Here's a link to some pics from the recent gig in Hobart. Some pretty decent ones.

And here is a link to the review by the guy who took the pics. Most extensive review/recap I've read so far.

Yikes! I spent so long pondering the question you found out what I had recommended before for yourself. Sorry about that.

What did you end up getting?


Love the pics, TE!

Thanks

Which reminds me! My camera died on me when I was down in Hobart the weekend before last I keep forgetting about it too .. every now and again I think .. DOH! I have to go and get myself a new one now ... I need to take one with me for the upcoming Church CD launch!!!

I didn't get to see the Church/Pretenders winery gig in Hobart (as brilliant as it would of been!) Yes, I'm a traitor, haha .. but I was at another gig that evening, to see Jeff Martin and Ritesh Das, the very favourite people of mine and lovely friends The funny thing was that one of the opening acts, a lovely musician called Dean Stevenson, was chatting away about working that day with the Pretenders ... and the Church!!! At which point I let out a loud gasp! Hehe

Anyway, looking forward to the upcoming Melbourne gig now and even possibly the show in Castlemaine!

I'm so jealous. ...then again, by the time they play here later in the year they will be stunningly good.

Starfish is an excellent album. I was just listening to it today myself. I absolutely adore Destination.

I was just thinking "I bet they are playing somewhere near U2Man. I should tell him to check them out live."

Tickets are generally pretty reasonable and they do put on a good show. Plus Europe is supposed to be all electric this year, so that will be cool. Everything they did last year (except for a few shows in Australia late in the year) were mostly acoustic -- full drum kit and electric bass, but the guitars were acoustic. That was done for logistical, financial, and tinnitus (drummer and singer/bass player both have it) reasons. They were the loudest, most energetic acoustic performances I have ever heard, but still more subdued musically that the full on electric shows.
