It's music time :-)
 
We have managed to get tickets for three amazing gigs in Feb:


  • Seether
  • System of a Down
  • Roger Waters version of The Wall.
They are all in Auckland and we are in ChCh, but the System and Wall dates are next to each other so a nice break on the North Island for us :thumbsup::thumbsup:

Can't wait :D

Thought about SOD but saw serge on his own at the BDO a couple of years ago and I was happy with that.
Seether aint my thing and I'd rather pull my own teeth out than have to listen to pink floyd.
Gonna see the Damned tomorrow night, am toying with going to see Peter Hooks Joy Division / Closer thing
and will be flying off to OZ to see the wedding present in April

Saw Fleet Foxes last week.

Am gutted that Bon Iver is playing Wellington (2 nights sold out) but not coming to Auckland.

Got Ryan Adams in March and am contemplating whether New Order are worth shelling out 100 bucks for.

Where/When is Hooky playing?

Wow, I didn't know SOAD were still about, I'd love to see them. I might be going to see Killing Joke in March though (on my own as none of my mates like the same stuff as me :()

I decided against new order, it wasn't the band but the venue. I saw Joy Division at the Russel club
and New order at the hacienda, I couldnt watch them as a stadium band, its just not right.
Peter Hook and the light are playing the studio on K road on April 20th Its light the ultimate tribute band.
Only 70 bucks and a small sweaty venue watching hooky play all the classics from Closer and Unknown pleasures
Just like the good old days :thumbup::thumbup:
Tickets from Ticket Master see you there:eek:

New Zealand is good for seeing older bands that were good back in the day :lol::p;)


we had a good band in Wanganui the weekend that played covers of the Rolling Stones, The Beatles, The Strokes and Queens of the stone age. nearest we will get to Listen to those bands apart from the beatles of course that would be impossible :lol:

I've seen The Stones here in NZ. The place was jammed packed with all ages.
I'm interested now. When does Love30stm become old hat for you Love30stm?

Oopsies. I should have written The Rolling Stones.

What I meant was that your preferences are for newer music. You prefer new stuff to old stuff I think. You are able to move along with the times when it comes to music. I sorta lost it somewhere back in the early 90's :p

So, when does the new stuff become the old stuff for you. Does any of the new stuff ever sound like a load of old racket & junk... like much of it does to me these days.

Re: It's music time :-)
 
Oo Evanescence are coming to Aus? Wonder if that's an excuse for some time away.
I was gutted, they played Leeds where I used to live.

Haha I like older stuff like Pink Floyd, The stones, The strokes are not a new band Also Morrisey (the smiths) and the cure and 80s glam Rock.

And there is some good artists out there and not Just crap rap, glee and The Beiber ewwwww :p

Re: It's music time :-)
 
Really looking forward to both New Order in Feb and Peter Hook playing ' Closer' ( quality album ) in April - saw Barney couple years ago in Liverpool with his then band Bad Lieutenant - haven't seen New Order live since the 80's.

Going to both of these on my tod so if anyone fancies meeting up at one or both of these gigs let me know :wave:

I'm going to see Hooky and the light in april, should be a good do, like you not seen em for years.
Used to see Bernard and Martin Jackson (Magazine, freshies, swing out sister) occasionally in the white horse in swinton.
How long you been in Cambridge? I left there 6 months ago after spending 3 years there, you know what cliquey place it is
I'm sure we must have some mutual friends

AndyRuth Jan 27th 2012 8:28 pm

Re: It's music time :-)
 
I'm sure we do :nod: Know exactly what you mean !!!

Anyway if you fancy a catching up at the gig over a beer give me a shout

Re: It's music time :-)
 
Hooky in Auckland looks good, don't know if i can make it.

If you like all the bands that's great but there's only two on the list I would pay to see (foos and damned, saw em both)
Its easy to fall into going to see anyone you've heard of mode just because they're here.
would you / have you been to see all those bands in the uk, most of em tour every year so have been easy to see if you wanted to

Ninja757 Jan 31st 2012 8:40 pm

Re: It's music time :-)
 
You`re right in a way.....We did just that when we first got across, but to be honest...the only ones I wouldn`t of usually seen would have been Def Leppard, Ronan and Roxette (although Def Leppard was a brilliant night) I`ve seen the Damned and Bad Manners plenty of times back in the UK and am / was into all the other bands anyway. I took my 14 year old to Incubus last night and they were amazing!!!........Ronan on Friday (wife has seen him before), but The Sisters of Mercy is the one i`m looking forward to the most. We`ve realised that decent bands DO make their way down to here, so are a bit choozy now (held back on New Order tickets because Hooky is not with them) and don`t fancy watching him trying to be Ian Curtis either!!
I made a `massive` call after the Foo Fighters gig by telling my son it was the `best concert i`ve ever been to`....and i`ve seen some great live bands over the years:thumbsup: (U2, Oasis, Depeche Mode, Bon Jovi, The Prodigy, Muse, Faithless, Kasabian)......so i`ve been a bit spolit since getting here!

haha thats also good if you live in Auckland but if you live 5 odd hours drive away not so good is it? i was only a hour or so away from gigs in the UK

My daughter is going to see Florence, but none of the above bands would be worth my time and expense to go to
Auckland for....

the only bands i want to see are

30 Seconds to mars (seen them once in Auckland and they have been to europe and australia numerous times and only been here once)

Muse (been here a couple of times i saw them at the BDO but again they have toured other parts of the world numerous times)

The Strokes ( not been here for years!!! toured in other countries)

Evanescence (not been here at all but to europe of course)

its hardly the music capital of the world here is it???
, but oh well just have to watch you tube and online for the live shows :thumbdown:

and Ronan Keeting??? omg :p

Ninja757 Feb 1st 2012 4:54 am

Re: It's music time :-)
 
Ronan Keating!!!!!............I only like one of his songs, but my wife likes him loads (the last time she saw him, she put a massive poster of him on our bedroom wall....i`m sure he used to `wink` at me)
I agree about the location problem. We have a 20 minute drive into Auckland for most of the gigs here, but if you`re elsewhere...you`re screwed.
Most bands only do one gig in NZ, and it tends to be Auckland (I did hear a rumour that Radiohead may be thinking of playing in the South island this year)
I`m looking forward to seeing Florence though. I missed her set when we went to Glastonbury in 2010 (Chose Dizzee Rascal on the Pyramid stage instead) but she did come on and duet with him for one song!:tounge_smile:

Had a thought about this while riding back from the Coromandel.
It jumped into my head that bands and their tours need to be booked quite a while in advance. Perhaps the life expectancy of the latest X idol's career doesn't make a world tour feasible, hence bands who have stood the test of time are the ones who travel............:beer:...like Guiness.

Haha no way I'm going to cancel a weekend of partying with my best friend it's already booked up and I'm not going to cry.

30 Seconds to Mars are my favorite band ;)

And plus it is a pain in the arse going to Auckland to see bands like I said I live a long way from there. Why don't they ever come to Wellington?? Pisses me off it is the Capital after all but you wouldn't know it:frown:

I'm not easily pleased like some people who live here :p and it was short notice!

And Evanescence apparently touring NZ? and there is only one place to go and that's Auckland as usual. So lucky you that live in Auckland :starsmile:

We can't all drop everything, work, commitments and spending money to stay overnight a 5 + hour drive just to get there.

So don't be a smart arse
