The Last Reunion?
Permalink  
 


Now  the Stone Roses have decided to get back together, there's only one band with a full set of living members that has yet to reform....

 

 

 

 

The Smiths smile

 

(Oh and a proper Boomtown Rats reunion would be nice)

Wouldn't mind seeing a Smiths reunion. As for the Rats I needn't say a word.

In the interim I can highly recommend the Smyths (www.thesmyths.net)

Playing Putney 4/11, New Cross 16/12 and another London gig (The Good Ship, wherever that is) on 17/12, if anyone wants to see for themselves.

I might do Putney if Rats gig 4/11 is definitely off and anyone else wants to hook up.

Also need to decide where my money's best spent between Stone Roses and Steps smile

Ah, I'm sure you'll go to see Steps.  I bet you know all the dances.

Apparently they are number one in the album charts with The Ultimate Collection.

And due to the overwhelming response to The Ultimate Tour, Steps have announced extra dates.... disbelief

Fortunately, apart from Tragedy (which lived up to its name), I have had the good fortune to not see nor hear them very much.   Reading about them is enough.

Tickets on sale for both iconic acts on sale this Friday at 9am.

 Sham 69 and SLF.  Not sure I'd be too worried.  I have heard that Sham gigs (even now) can be a bit err edgy.

Just a few weeks ago I was listening to the double cd Stone Roses greatest hits and very good it sounded too. The fact  that they can sell out all the gigs in 15 minutes speaks for itself, so good luck to them.

Ian Brown's solo work in general is pretty good. The reunion, of course comes, with the proviso that everyone is twenty years older and all that that brings.

For the last couple of weeks I've been listening to a lot of Steely Dan and they started out in 1972 and stopped playing live in the late 1970's, continuing as a studio band.

They made a live comeback around the mid nineties making their hiatus from live performance one of the longest in rock history.

 Yep.  Thought there is a bit of a proviso on the speed of the sale.  A lot of tickets have been put up for sale on sites like seatwave & viagogo, and prices have been dropping as days have gone by now people realise there are close to a quarter of a million tickets for the gigs.  It's a common story for many gigs with speculators snapping up the best tickets for resale.  Still I should be grateful, that's how I got my front row Geldof seats the day before the gig smile

The seem to be swanning around Europe in a lot of trendy cities on their 2012 tour but have forgotten Blackpool, which is associated with the Roses in the way that Leeds might be associated with The Who.

The is a prospective gig for Slane Castle which normally attracts a huge attendence of 60,000 plus- way to big a gig for me to be interested in.

They won't have too much work to do if judging by Ian Brown playing I Wanna Be Adored at Glastonbury- the crowd largely singing the song like a football crowd 'sucking' the ball into the goal.

The dates are fake...

Personally I would expect them to be at festivals during the summer.

Interesting you associate the Stone Roses with Blackpool.  I thought Spike Island was considered to be their peak. 

What is interesting is how few gigs they played in 1989 and 1990.  More people will probably see them this time around.

New Order is one of those bands I have never gotten into- they'd always made me feel completely indifferent.

Its probably Blue Monday that puts me off-overplayed and overrated. Didn't know they had broken up in the first place, to reform.

The Rats would be beating that.  27 years from RDS to IOW.

So just The Smiths and Oasis left now.  Pretty much every act I like whose members are mostly living are out there recording or touring.  And some with no original members at all, like Dr. Feelgood.

Of course Noel and Liam Gallagher will get back together at some stage and milk their fans for more money. At least the Rats were apart for 27 years so it is a genuine reunion/reformation rather than an Oasis pretend style dispute.

Oasis will reunite and I suspect The Smiths will too at some stage. The former is more likely. Some bands it seems want to preserve their image as ageless and youthful, while others just realise that everyone ages and are less concerned about image. The Stones have grown old disgracefully- whether that's a good or a bad thing is open to debate.

The touring bit is well established. 

A new Boomtown Rats album would be welcome now. 

With Back to Boomtown and the excellent songs on How to Compose,  Bob Geldof shows what an excellent songwriter he is.

Yes, please. That would be nice.
