    2019 Solo Acoustic Tour

    This is a fear I didn't realize I had. I've flown to a few concerts and have considered flying day of but was more worried about delays or getting to the venue on time, I never considered the potential to confuse AM and PM. It's great you will still be able to make the show and hopefully it's extra special to take some of that financial sting off.

    2019 Solo Acoustic Tour

    Whoa! I thought this song was put in the vault and never to return so this is kind of a big deal for me. I still go back to recordings from the WLRRR tour and seek out this song specifically so the fact it's even being considered for a return is amazing. There are so many favorites, deep cuts and "haven't played in decades" songs being played or soundchecked in the last few weeks that I should have taken a page from NonPopulus and did a bit of a road trip through the province to increase my chances of hearing them all.
  3. Yup, that was last night and it was pretty amazing. I can see some people may be put off by the "no cellphone" policy but it was really refreshing. Once inside the wait was a bit slow but it's a good trade off to not have bright screens everywhere. To me Jack White will always be White Stripes and I enjoy his solo work but my preference is always to go back to "the old days" with Jack. Even with tightened security I still recorded and have finished tracking out the show. If any are curious here are some links you can use: Song sample of "Offend in Every Way" on SoundCloud: https://soundcloud.com/sean-gursky/jack-white-offend-in-every-way-november-2-2018 MP3's (CRB 256kbps) created from the original WAV files on Dropbox: https://www.dropbox.com/s/selb93g0wm4svuk/jw.20181102.ca14c.mp3.zip?dl=0 Lossless (FLAC) torrent on Traders Den: http://www.thetradersden.org/forums/showthread.php?p=2656023 Lossless (FLAC) file on WeTransfer (auto deletes in 7 days): https://wetransfer.com/downloads/71ebee33597de3eea91cb8c7eb7fb0b420181103123325/c281641c2ca7b9c5c975e07c398f243920181103123325/8999d9
  4. Looks like Chad couldn't make the rescheduled Foo Fighters date but I did. I didn't have tickets to the original sold out date in September and was diligent and monitored Kijiji for the last month looking for a reasonably priced floor ticket to show up and I found one. I haven't seen the Foo Fighters since the late 90's (Edgefest) and in two decades they haven't slowed down a single bit. Looking at setlist.fm prior to the show I was disappointed they were only doing 21-22 songs but what was missing from that is that their set clocked in at nearly three hours. Last night it was 2h50m and it was common to have some songs go for double or triple their runtime (Pretender was 12 minutes, Best of You was 11). I also liked that their encore wasn't a quick "off and on" either. They were off stage for over 7 minutes and it was close to 10 minutes before they played again. As Dave was running around, getting all areas of the arena in to the show I kept thinking how they are the definition of "entertainers". It wouldn't be a concert rundown without some links, so for those curious I have a song sample on SoundCloud and the full show has been posted on Dimeadozen: SoundCloud: https://soundcloud.com/sean-gursky/foo-fighters-all-my-life-october-22-2018 Dimeadozen: http://www.dimeadozen.org/torrents-details.php?id=633522 Next up for me is Jack White in November (saw the White Stripes five [seven if you include attending two secret shows in 2007] times in 2005-2007) but first time seeing Jack as a solo artist so I'm pretty excited for that.

    AC Tour Info

    Excited to have the full tour announced and see what the gaps were from the shows that were discovered earlier this summer. Even though I'm sticking to shows in the capital region I feel pretty fortunate that there are 10 stops in Alberta for this tour. I have a question about the March 20 Edmonton show and the venue. Since the tour announcement I've noticed references to another venue (Myer Horowitz - seated venue) as opposed to the one where the show is happening (Starlite Room - GA). I've attached a few images to show this discrepancy. Was there a last minute venue change for Edmonton or simply placeholder text used? I realize the logistics of planning a West > East > West Canadian tour with 35 shows can pose a few headaches when trying to determine where to play and when and maybe this is a peek behind the curtain on what may be involved in that process. Regardless, I'm looking forward to the tour and all the excitement that comes with it.

    2019 Solo Acoustic Tour

    Here you go, show announcement for Campbell River! MG will play Monday February 4 at the Tidemark Theater. Ticket cost is $43 (+applicable taxes and fees) and they go on sale Friday, September 21 at 10AM (assume PST?). Here is the page with the show announcement, which also has some potential artwork for the tour: http://tidemarktheatre.com/event/matthew-good-2/.
  8. I saw their Edmonton show last night (final stop on the North American tour). I've never seen the Pumpkins live before and a 30+ song set that lasted for over 3 hours is quite the introduction! I may not have appreciated some of the songs played but it was a fun show and I definitely got my monies worth. I recorded the show and if anyone is interested you can find the full concert on Dimeadozen and also have a song sample below.

    2019 Solo Acoustic Tour

    Tickets for February 15 (Arden Theatre in St. Albert) went on sale this morning. They used the "find seats for me" method which meant a lot of release/search again cycles, searching on multiple devices, etc. until I found something I liked. I prefer the "choose your seat" method but all of the Arden Theatre shows for the 2018-19 season went on sale today so they may have used this approach until the initial surge is over. I was hoping for a seat lower down (15 rows in total in the venue) but they were too close to the edge and not in the middle. In the end I found seats in the back row, which if I can't be on a balcony is probably the next best place to capture the show. We'll see what the 2019 announcement looks like but I'm pretty content with how this one week looks: Friday February 15 - St. Albert Wednesday February 20 - Camrose Friday February 22 - Fort Saskatchewan Camrose appears to be 2/3 full (back three rows on the main and some rows in balcony) and Fort Saskatchewan is 3/4 full (main is mostly occupied and only seats remain in the balcony). Curious to see is St. Albert will sell faster because it's had more of a formal announcement than the other two. EDIT: Two hours after they went on-sale there are only EIGHT tickets left for St. Albert...damn!

    2019 Solo Acoustic Tour

    Found some more information on the February 15 Arden Theatre (St. Albert) show... Their 2018-2019 brochure is available here (https://stalbert.ca/uploads/PDF-infosheets/Arden-SeasonBrochure-2018-19-FINAL-WEB.pdf, page 28) and does confirm what NonPopulus shared earlier, so good news! The 2018-2019 season won't be formally announced until July 18 and don't imagine the Arden Theatre will show anything until that time. According to the brochure tickets are $40 and will go on sale Monday August 10 at 10AM. The good news with a long wait for the on sale date is that other Edmonton area shows may be uncovered by then and give us a better idea of how that time between St. Albert > Camrose > Ft. Saskatchewan is going to be used.

    2019 Solo Acoustic Tour

    What an awesome find! I have been refreshing all Arden Theatre sites/social media I could find in hopes of learning more about the February date and you find it through a marketing source. I wonder then if their June 6 tweet about their final artist being "a biggie" is referring to MG as well. With no other information on the show I expect this concert won't have specifics until the Arden Theatre posts their 2018-2019 performance series on July 18. I can't really say no to going to this show but hope we learn what may appear in the few day gap between St. Albert and Camrose.

    2019 Solo Acoustic Tour

    Daaang, how did you find this one? I’m seeing nothing on their website, Twitter, etc. Do you have any details or have an inside source? I wonder if it’ll be announced in a few weeks as part of their 2018-2019 series, which is being revealed July 18.

    2019 Solo Acoustic Tour

    In addition to a vague "matthew good 2019" search I have been looking in on Memorial Center (Red Deer) and Myer Horowitz (Edmonton, University) for performances but nothing yet. I'm sure there are other venues he could play in Edmonton (ie: Jubilee, Winspear) but with the other Alberta venues being ~500 seats I feel like a smaller setting like Horowitz would be comparable.

    2019 Solo Acoustic Tour

    Agreed, it kind of feels like we're playing a game to see when and where the next show will be. It helps that we know there is a game happening and are on the look out for announcements. If I wasn't here every day and didn't see any announcement on the official site or Twitter I'd be pretty choked to find out that the nearest show to me went on sale a month and seats may be limited. I'm not sure how you found the Airdrie show but my Google-fu still doesn't pull it up. I won't be travelling to Airdrie but there is a week between that date and Camrose so perhaps something in the mountains is possible? If there is one there I'd strongly consider it, but as it is I'm happy with two acoustic shows next year. Checking back over the thread I think this is accurate of what's been announced so far. There isn't a lot of time to stop in Saskatchewan or Manitoba between February 22 and 28, but certainly possible. February 10: Lake Country, BC February 13: Airdrie, Alberta February 20: Camrose, Alberta February 22: Fort Saskatchewan, Alberta February 28, Brampton, Ontario March 3: North Bay, Ontario March 7: Brantford, Ontario March 8: Milton, Ontario March 9: Richmond Hill, Ontario

    2019 Solo Acoustic Tour

    Just saw this in a 'matthew good 2019' search. Tickets go on sale June 18 *. Fort Saskatchewan and Camrose are two odd places to play and I'm very curious to see what the rest of the Alberta tour looks like or if it'll stick to these fringe markets. Regardless, I'll look to get tickets for this show too. * confirmed: the 'on sale soon' link for the MG show says that they will go on sale Monday June 18 at 9AM.
