Re: Boss in Paris

Hey TheBigJT, I actually travelled to LA and was at shows 1 and 2. It felt extravagant but I decided on that before the European shows were announced, and made a holiday out of it as I had never been to LA. It was great indeed to hear some of the less often played songs. The version of 'I wanna mar...

Re: Boss in Paris

It's a bit of a shame that Europe didn't get the full River shows that we had here in the States. I was able to catch four of them (Phoenix and 3x in LA) and doing so I found that even some of the deeper cuts that I hadn't paid attention to in a long time were stunning live. Revisiting "Independence...

Re: BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN - WEMBLEY 2013 - TICKET WANTED

Here in the US, they tend to do multiple ticket drops in the weeks leading to the show. Last April I was in NYC for work and grabbed a ticket for one of the shows a couple weeks out via a drop like that. There's a whole bunch of folks on the BTX board (Fan board) who try to help each other out ther...

Re: US Tour 2013

Sorry to have been away a bit, work and other stuff seems to keep interfering with the more fun stuff (like visiting here). I did get a ticket for the Hotel Cafe, so I'm very pleased. It also drops nicely onto the five days I'm home between two work trips, so everything lined up very well. I'm going...

Re: What albums should everyone listen to at least once?

I did a sort of iPod plays to see what I've returned to the most over the past six years or so when I'm driving or working. Obviously, there is a bias against newer stuff, since logically the window of time to have played it is smaller....so that left things like Springsteen's newest off the list. I...

Re: US Tour 2013

Wow, ToTheWest....I'm surprised you were shut out too. I know that you've been seeing them around here since before I even visited this board the first time. I'm really floored and disappointed that pretty much everyone here was shut out of these two shows. Heck, I even got into the SlideBar in Full...

Re: Counting Crows advice!

Just to add, I saw them last month here in Anaheim and they were stellar. One of the best live acts I saw last year..."Long December" and "Rain King" both just floored me. Here's the setlist: Le Ballet d’Or / Mr. Jones / Untitled (Love Song) (The Romany Rye cover) / Recovering the Satellites / Color...

Re: US Tour 2013

I just wrote to the e-mail on the website. They don't have a phone number listed to call. I know it's a small place, but to not put them on sale at the listed time, then have them sold out an hour later really smells funny....or they are just not able to use the internet to sell tickets very well. P...

Re: US Tour 2013

Well, that's a load of crap.
It appeared on the Hotel Cafe site and is sold out already.

Something fishy about this.
Not there at 10am, but appears and is sold out at 11am?

Not very happy.

Re: US Tour 2013

So, it looks like no one is seeing any link on the Hotel Cafe page? The Roxy is a dicey date for me, but I wanted to grab a ticket for the Hotel Cafe for sure. (Never been there even though I live here. I've heard it's small.) I was at the Roxy in December to see Graham Parker and the Rumour (I hadn...
