Oops, my bad! Apparently they are starting the N.American leg - will be in their hometown of S.Calif at the end of the month. I've never been a big fan, but know a few songs. I have heard some of the new album, thanks to an interferer
If I could get really cheap tix off of ebay, then maybe I'd try & take my daughter. She loves Dani California and a few of their other "hits".

Definitely go if you can - i went with two friends who are "passive" fans - they only knew a few songs (mainly stuff of the Greatest Hits album) but really enjoyed the whole show.

Plus I'd imagine a hometown gig will have a fantastic atmosphere - good luck in your ticket hunt!

Numb - I agree - it's good to hear an album with such consistent quality.

I just can't afford to spend a lot of money on tickets, and they are pretty pricey on ebay, even the crappy ones

Really ? - that sucks.

I was really lucky with my tickets. I am not sure how I managed to get my tickets so easily - for some reason they didn't sell out the venue I went too. My tickets were £40 (about $75), though I know for some of the sold out London gigs they were going for LOADS more on ebay.

I never looked into getting tickets when the show first went on sale. I just looked this past week. Both shows might be sold out, as no pair of tickets have come up thru Ticketmaster... Oh well... I've got some tickets on ebay watch

I think Pearl Jam and Snow Patrol have given this album good competition though!

This is definitely a great album, but the best of '06? I'm not so sure.

Pearl Jam's album is just as solid if not more amazing.

Thom Yorke's haunting, beautiful, and moving.

Muse's release is definitely their best-to-date and has what no other album of '06 has, you guessed it, Knights of Cydonia bitches

I just got home from the show in Boise. It was fantastic!!! I don't have any of their cd's and would call myself a casual fan. I went because my awesome wife bought me a ticket to the concert since I always complain that no one good ever plays Boise. [Shame on me since I saw Buce Cockburn Monday night, Toad the Wet Sprocket last week and will be seeing the Rolling Stones here in November.]

Anyway, it was alot of fun and would recommend this tour to everyone. I have a new respect for the Peppers. The couple of times I have seen them on t.v. (i.e., SNL a couple months back), I was never that impressed, but they put on a killer show. The entire band is fun to watch and John is WAY underrated as a guitar player. So that is all the good....

Now the bad...they missed a bunch of songs. I don't think anything prior to Blood Sugar Sex Magic was played and none of the following songs were played: Under the Bridge, My Friends, Californication, Higher Ground, Otherside, and others I expected to hear (but can't remember at this late hour). I was especially bummed since I read a review of the Portland show and expected Friends, Bridge, and Californication based on the reviewer's setlist. Also, they did a bunch of jam sessions and Chad did a drum solo, while those are cool why not nix them for a few more hits.

I now understand the complaints that I read about U2 shows from casual fans.

That would bum me out, since I would say I only know the hits, and disc 1 of the latest CD. I thought some of the setlists reported from Europe reported Under The Bridge and Californication Dani California was supposedly song 2... THing is if I go, I'd be going to the S.Calif. show, and that's there hometown... Damn, why are tickets so much $$$



Charlie from the Portland show:

Yeah, they opened the show with Can't stop, dani california, and scar tissue. So, based on that I was excited for the songs to come. Then, a string of new ones, which were good, but still would have like to have heard a few more hits.
