Matthew Good 2011 Tour Dates!

Recommended Posts

Well, It does sound like we might be getting a solo acoustic tour next year. I would assume the setlists for that would probably more varied and with a lot more rarities in them.

 

Personally, I think the sets are great on this tour and it seems like the band has learned a lot of material considering the circumstances. It seems like they know more than the Stu/Blake lineup did on their first tour. I do think 14 songs per show is a little on the low side, but for me I'll just be happy to go as it's been 2 years without a MG show for me, and I'm really excited to take a good friend. The fact that he comes and plays in a place like Nanaimo is enough to be thankful for too, so I don't have to make a big trip to see him. People going to the Toronto or Vancouver shows shouldn't worry, as I'm sure he'll play a few extra at those shows with a couple special acoustic gems included (as he usually does in those places).

 

I agree though that even one acoustic rarity, rotating every night, maybe to end the show, would be awesome and probably feasible.

Haven't been about in a long time here .. interesting read.

 

Really looking forward to tonight's show. Tried to get vip tix but the website seemed to be non-functional when I tried. So, I still got quazi-middle 4th row and I'm hoping, like last tour, the NAC allows cameras. Anyone else attending.. wave :)

Just an FYI:

 

The Sarnia (November 1st) and Meaford (October 30th) shows have been CANCELLED due to uncontrollable circumstances.

 

Tickets will be refunded at point of purchase.

I'm so bummed for Sarnia and Meaford people. I would be crushed if one of those was my only show.

 

@Curtster - Totally agree that this tour, under the circumstances, has a great set all things considered... I really do wish more Vancouver and Hospital Music tracks were in the mix, though. REALLY hoping for an all-acoustic tour (and that it doesn't clash with my wedding/honeymoon, because I will follow that tour!). As for Toronto, I hope he throws in any goodies on Thursday for my dad's sake; I keep telling him to see both shows and he keeps picking the first one of two.

How did you enjoy the show? I was in the 4th row as well, closer to the left side.

Apparently 99% made it into the set in Ottawa. Full band?

 

Are you sure? I might have been on less than an hour of sleep, but I don't recall that song at all.

I wonder what's up with these scheduling issues, I'm pretty sure MG can still sell out a theatre. At the start of the tour I noticed that his opener was scheduled for less shows than he was too.

Yes, it did lie. I just searched at setlist.fm and I see that whoever originally posted it thought that Born Losers was 99%.

Seriously! Don't TEASE me! That song's very dear to me; got me through my grandfather's cancer and death. I would love for it to show up in Toronto. Also: how can you possibly confuse the two songs? One's bouncy-fast and about a relationship; one's slow-ish and about death. *boggles*

 

Re: scheduling: totally confused. Matt suggested market saturation, which I suppose is possible, and given the lousy economy right now, I know I've cut back on live shows to a degree. Still very odd.

I really did, thank you... with my ticket, I would have been more to the right.... but in the end I never really got to sit in it. I ended up with a photo pass so that kept me pretty busy, and inhibits the enjoyment of just sitting in the audience and listening. Then again, it adds another element I love which is concert photography :)

In the videos I've watched I kinda thought the new guitarist was a bit sloppy in some parts of the new material. Also the guitar tone is not quite as warm as I expected it might be.
