While I still like their studio work somewhat, even that has become subpar to their best work. Arguably 1984-1992 with "Ultra" and "Playing the Angel" thrown in. And they used to be so great live. The past three tours however supporting their last three albums have had almost the same exact set list each time. But I went to this show with an open mind any way. And found nothing enjoyable about it. This band has long checked out. They are just going through the motions at this point. There was nothing exciting, no energy. It felt so tired. Right down to the boring stage design and backdrop/videos. And the crowd was the worst I've ever seen at a D.C. show. People were either just standing there lifeless or were sitting down. Dave Gahan could barely muster anything from them with his signature yelling to get them to cheer. Since these tours are cash cow for them, they are never going to change a thing. And that makes me both sad and angry.
I'm younger so this was my first time seeing them this past Saturday at MSG. It's unfortunate the amount of great hit songs that they have that they just don't play. And of course they switched up the setlist a bit for the 2nd show with Policy of Truth, Black Celebration and Strangelove.

Here's the video of the band walking out to “Wake Up” with an accompaniment by the Preservation Hall Jazz Band.

Re: What concert did you recently attend?

Last weekend saw Royal Blood & Queens of the Stone Age. Great show, simple stage setup for both bands and just a straightforward rock show.

Re: What concert did you recently attend?

Wife and I saw a bucket list show for her last night.

Air Supply

She's been a fan since the 80's so we got VIP package, with a meet and greet, attend the sound check and front row center seats.

It was really good. Better than I expected. Their voices are still strong even in their late 60's. Not a show I would have went to on my own, but she was so thrilled it made it worth every penny.

The Chameleons Vox last night in Boston.

Original singer/bass player/composer Mark Burgess, and he looked and sounded great. Really captured the classic sound of the band.

Saw Epica, Lacuna Coil,. Insomnium and Elantris on Friday night. All the bands were great. Cristina from Lacuna Coil came out to sing with Epica for the song "Storm The Sorrow" . It completely surprised me and made the show extra special.

Also saw the Muppets at the Hollywood Bowl (September 9th). That was a fun show.

Big fan of Insomnium, but I've never seen them. Muppets would have been cool.

Re: What concert did you recently attend?

Dark Tranquillity, Warbringer, and Striker last night. Very different styles of music on this tour. Striker is old school 80s rock metal like a heavier Triumph maybe? I was there for Warbringer bringing back the pure 80s style thrash sound of Slayer, Exodus and Death Angel. I wasn't familiar with Dark Tranquillity, but it was interesting to see Arch Enemy's Christopher Amott playing guitar for them on this tour.
