BRING ON LONDON PLEASE :)
and why their age on the release dat of the albums affects their ability to appreciate the shows?
Note also that "They'll also play some "greatest hits" on both nights".
"Why do they need to do this?" Why does it matter if people want to go and see it?
And what's the allowable nostalgia threshold? Should I not have allowed myself to see Roger Waters play Dark Side Of The Moon at Roskilde? Should I have only gone and listened to something that was released since I was out of nappies? Or should Mr Waters have only played his compositions from the preceeding decade?
...and what about when Sonic Youth Came to town to play Daydream Nation? I'd listened to and liked some recent SY albums, but hadn't heard that particular album at the time. And I was out of nappies when it was released in 1988.
It's all seems so complicated so any light you can shed on the rules about this kind of thing would be appreciated so that I don't go wrong in the future.
I wouldn't want to book tickets to see Weezer if they come to town having only heard Blue and not been fussed at the time of release, but since growing to like it more, and having not heard Pinkerton, but having liked a couple of their recent albums and really grown to like Raditude in particular.
Jeez. The more I think about it, the more of a minefield it becomes.
you sir don't get the point at all, other bands do it... not just Weezer, you're making it sound like they're doing it to shun the new material.
So when I saw Pavement a couple weeks ago, should I have turned away from everything up to and including the release of Watery, Domestic because I was barely two when that particular EP came out? What about when I heard SY perform "Silver Rocket" last year, is the fact that I was not yet a zygote when Daydream Nation dropped grounds for me to have been barred from the show?
Nostalgia doesn't necessarily mean that "you were there," it means that you remember that particular album in your own way. Are you only nostalgic about the records you bought the day they came out? Should I not connect a vast swath of my teenage years with The Beatles because Lennon was already completely decomposed by the time I was born? Where is the line?
unsure why they need to spread it over 2 nights, beyond making more cash. They're hardly epic albums; Pinkerton is only about half an hour long.
It's not like the new album harks back much to Blue or Pinkerton. You act like he's started taking orders from the fanbase, if he was like that we'd never have got The Girl Got Hot or We Are All on Drugs. Loads of acts have done this sort of gig, what's the fuss?
And I'd like to point out that you're being pretty pissy.
Weezer Green was essentially a reboot of the weezer name, I think Rivers even acknowledges them to be different bands with the same name.
Stop being such a grumpy Gus
He's only human!
especially on Pinkerton.
After that their songs became the standard verse/chorus/verse/chorus/bridge/solo/chorus thing, about 90% of the time.
why Sonic Youth would perform Daydream Nation and not Washing Machine or NYC Ghosts & Flowers (disclaimer: not trying to equate those albums to Make Believe or anything), it's just because those are the most famous album(s). You're taking this way too seriously ... er ... as am I.
going to these?
Which it probably will be.
I'd be very surprised if they did these over here.
ps, Nob Hill lol
Extreme cash in, saying that im all over it if it comes anywhere near London.
WELL, I was going to go and catch one of them (hadn't decided which) if they came to Portland, but I GUESS THAT'S OUT NOW. Fuck you, Rivers. Shitty clubs for $10 MADE YOU, go back there you asshole.
This is fucking retarded!
The only odd thing is that they're doing it just having releasing a new album when they should be touring that.
or even a year down the line from now. It's just oddly timed.
there's only so often you can do big tours close to each other without overkilling and eating into attendance, yet they've put out three albums in a little over two years now and toured the first two pretty hard in the US. Maybe this is just a way to keep on tour whilst giving it some kind of gimmick to distinguish it from the last three times Weezer have come to your city since 2008?
So looks like it'll be him on drums, the drummer on guitar, and Rivers jumping about on a mini trampoline or some shit for these dates too.
