    Curses! I'm bummed that they're not playing in Wisconsin. That means that on October 17 (a Wednesday) I would have to drive close to 2 hours to Chicago after work so that I can see them. But I work the next day as well, so I'd have to drive two hours after the show and only sleep a few hours for the day after. Hmmm..... Worth it? I'll probably do it.

    It seems really odd that they have such a large gap between Tulsa and Chicago. I'm in the same boat, and it's further complicated by my already having tickets to Elton John on 10/15 that week. I'm probably gonna have to sit this one out.

    Are they any festivals maybe that would prevent them from announcing a gig in there? ACL ends on the 14th if they only played weekend 2, but that would mean 4 nights in a row so that's probably really unlikely.

    They skipped Philly for "20 Years Queer," so I was quite surprised to see both Philly *and* Atlantic City.

    So bummed they're not coming anywhere close to Florida this go-round.

    That reminds me that we never got an official stream / download of their version of "Starman." Ugh!

    I got to see the 20 Years Paranoid tour last night in Manchester.

    The band were on top form, more so than the 20 Years Queer tour. They sounded really tight and the songs were all fantastic. I was particularly impressed with Wicked Ways, Dumb, Deadwood and Sleep Together, especially when you consider they haven't done 3 of them since 99 and Deadwood hasn't ever been done live. YLSF ended with the first half of Fleetwood Mac's "Dreams" which was brilliant.

    Shirley was in tears at one point, genuinely moved by the crowd who were going nuts throughout the whole set, prompting Shirley to state "F*cking hell, Manchester, you're scaring me - you're louder than the Barrowlands!!"

    The only drawback really was that the set started and ended quite slowly. The encore was a bit lifeless. YLSF was a bit of a sombre end to the main set too.

    I know there's probably more technicalities to the set with samples and certain guitars being used for certain songs dictating the order, but I would've probably rejigged it a bit so that it looked like this:



    As was already stated, the only song not in the set was "Tornado" but it isn't really a song. They could've done some sort of intro with it though, in a similar fashion to "Alien Sex Fiend" on the last time.

    But all in all, a brilliant show and part of me wishes I got tickets to another show to see it again.

    Something new for the November version of Record Store Day:

    While on tour with, and inspired by Exene Cervenka of X and Blondie's Deborah Harry, Garbage worked with John Doe and Exene to write and produce "Destroying Angels", the A-side of this special RSD Black Friday red/whie vinyl single. The B-side, Garbage's rendition of "Starman" was originally recorded for Howard Stern's David Bowie tribute broadcast. This single is the first and only physical release of the song.

    Garbage doing "Starman" sounds awesome. From the description it sounds like this is the live tribute version, and they did not re-record it in the studio? I'm curious to hear how it sounds ...

    New show announced for May 10 as part of the grand opening of the new Fillmore venue in New Orleans. Surely this will be part of a larger spring/summer 2019 tour because that's incredibly random otherwise! This will apparently be their first NOLA show since Voodoo Fest 2002.

    I saw them last night in Chicago and they were AMAZING! Shirley is in peak form and I agree that they were even better than on the 20YQ tour. The setlist was very similar, but Starman wasn't performed and the encore ended with No Horses followed by Cherry Lips as the closer.

    Of note, Shirley had a ton of trouble with volume and her ear piece. It was kind of comical because of how frequently it was an issue, but you could see that she was pissed! Everything sounded really good to me, but every now and then you could see her tapping on her mic and doing the "turn it up" gesture while looking to the side of the stage. Other times, she'd fiddle a lot with her ear piece and find an opening during songs to say things such as "still too loud". This happened frequently during songs that had taken place after banter. Speaking of, there was a little less of that in this tour, but at least the more obscure b-sides did get addressed. It was very amusing! Especially the bit about Get Busy With the Fizzy.

    Really unflattering review of the Port Chester, NY show.

    What a weird article. That's like something a catty friend would post on Facebook as opposed to a review someone would write for publication. It seems to revel in the sensationalism of it all, like teenage gossip.

    I love that Shirley talks quite a bit between songs! It always comes across as really heartfelt and sincere, plus it kind of breaks down the wall between artist and fans. That way, you get a really powerful sense of connection to the band playing the songs you grew up with. The only thing I may have agreed on is the pointing of the mic towards the audience numerous times during several songs. When I saw them, it never happened during songs nor moments when it bothered me, but then again, I was very close to the stage, so it was more fun.

    PS: The very sexy Eric Avery sometimes does some really nice hip gyrating.
