  1. Very excited for this. As artists have had their revenue completely dissolve recently, I think there's a lot of fans who would like to help out in some way. While I've enjoyed that some of my favourites have jumped online and done a free little thing, I'm sure it's very important to many fans that the musicians they have connected with are financially able to continue doing what they want to.
  2. I'm with NonPopulus, his comments about seeing reactions from the crowd on the Lights tour struck me. For that tour my usual partner in crime for MG shows was out of town, and my other buddy had to bail last minute. I felt slightly odd going to a show by myself, but I had the VIP ticket so it's not like I was going to bail. What followed remains one of my favourite concerts of all time. An hour after the show I was able to thank Matt for the show and let him know that it was one of the best concerts I'd ever heard. His reaction was modest and polite, but perhaps a bit confused? It was like he
  3. The Avalanche tour back in '03 had the BEST run of 21st Century Living performances. There's some recordings of them floating around. In my eyes the Cayuga live version of Under the Influence with the extended jam at the end remains one of my favourite rare performances of his career. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_98KViyMk3Y I'd love to hear more of Decades... that album didn't get the same tour treatment as the others, and it has some amazing songs. Hopefully they'll pop up from time to time.
  4. My eldest gave it a 10/10 which is funny because his frame of reference is nonexistent. It would be fun to be a kid again for that reason – every new experience is the best you’ve ever had.
  5. Damn! Calgary had one of “those” shows. Some jackass pulled a “nobody cares” at one of his stories and the rest of the night was completed without another non-singing word from Matt. It’s so frustrating that one jackass can ruin the energy of an entire show, but there it is. A damn fine setlist and his voice was in top form, but it’s always a drag when you know he’s not having a fun time After the show I’m not sure I’ve seen a more hostile environment. The heckler was actually singled out (loudly) as people were exiting and tensions were a little south of comfortable. I witnessed two nea
  6. Ya I missed it too, but loving the positive reviews. I'm a big Tidal Wave fan so anything in that arena is thumbs up.
  7. LOES may end up being in my top 3 albums of all time, but I see what he's saying about the song. It has a bit of a "oh shit we need a single" feel to it.
  8. You are a class act. Thank you so much for the offer! Unfortunately I must decline on account of me needing 3 tickets, and I managed to score some in the live nation pre-sale just now. I should say rather... the American Express pre-sale. I tried the code "mattgood" and it didn't work, so I tried "acoustic" again, and got in. There were plenty of new tickets, so I just assumed that was the live nation pre-sale doing it's thing. Got some fine seats in the 6th row, made it all the way to the payment and was greeted with a message "You're not using an american express card". I had to make a
  9. Haha Christ the Calgary show was a mess. There were a ton of seats and then bam... a minute later all I could get was at the very back corner. Hoping I can get better seats when they go on sale to the public.
  10. These guys popped up in a recommended playlist a few months ago on Apple Music and I've been a big fan ever since.
  11. Picked up some Airdrie tickets. Definitely a different approach to marketing but I'm sure there's a solid reason. It appears the die-hards are all going to have incredible seats, so if that's the intention then I'm on board.
  12. I more or less purchased a player just to play the previous round of vinyl. I wish I could explain why I like it, but I do. I'm not an audiophile in the slightest... I couldn't tell you the difference between the versions even a little bit. There's just something about them that I like.
  13. God I had a great time at the Calgary show. As daniel_v mentioned, there were certainly some health concerns leading up to it. All things considered I was blown away. SLAS was first and he went hard... it was incredible. I was hoping for Bad Guys Win and Decades, but will have to cross my fingers for Edmonton. I won't complain though... Machine Gun, Something Like a Storm, and Bullets in a Briefcase were top notch. OLP impressed me a lot more than I expected. The guitarist and bassist have outstanding voices. Their backup vocals at the tail end of Is Anybody Home were outstanding. The
  14. Last time I did this the presale tickets were brutal and the public ones were awesome. Guess I'll find out in a few minutes.
  15. Wonder when we'll hear details of what's in the VIP packages? I'm assuming same as the last couple tours?
