It's really nice to see Saskatchewan on the tour. They deserve it.

Damn, no VIP in London this time either.  I was thinking I could justify it this time.  Maybe I'll try Hamilton, since it is a Saturday night.

 

Very excited, regardless.

Although at first I was doubtful of the whole thing, I now disagree. It was another era and the BM tour was awesome but the songs themselves have a soul that can be revived with that kind of thing and I like that. I wish he would do the same with some of AOB which sadly has been burried under the band's conflicts.

You should go then. That is the epic song that drew me in in the first place at a Matthew Good Band summer concert in 2001. Especially at the part of Born to Kill where the music notes are steadily going up in a crescendo, I was totally lost in the music. The only way I can describe it is that it was like a heavenly experience. You won't regret it, my friend. I promise. They played it at the Stampede Coral. It probably wasn't the best of Calgary venues, but it was the best concert I've ever been to in my life.

To be fair Carmelina, Tripoli, Advertising on Police Cars, Truffle Pigs, The Rat Who Would Be King, and Sort of a Protest Song have been rolled into live performances since that album came out. Given how Matt talks about the album from time to time, I'm impressed we hear as much as we do. I agree with you though, it'd be cool to hear that album reworked and toured. 

 

For the time being though Beautiful Midnight is my favourite album of all time, so this is bloody brilliant to hear. Only having to wait 2 weeks for the EP is pretty exciting as well. Should be a fun winter.

I dont think there's a single shitty venue on this planet that could keep me from seeing my favorite band.

 

Matt is playing the infamous Commodore Ballroom, expect a very LOUD audience of drunk adults who know every word.

 

RANT: I truly hate complaining about VIP but it's been pretty lackluster the past few years. From small indie bands to headlining acts, there's a new VIP standard of what $100-$200 dollars can/should get you but it's always hit & miss here.

 

Group photos are normally the nail in the coffin for me. You'll always be the blurry face in the back being covered by 3 other people.

 

But not even a physical copy of I Miss New Wave?(which will probably be sold at merch).

 

It went from actually meeting Matt at a meet & greet to now just being in the same room as him, with 40 other people.

 

I hate that feeling of being a wallet, constantly ushered around & told when to talk, sit, buy.

 

There's always a mutual benefit with the fans by giving them 15 seconds of signing items they cherish, small talk & a quick photo. That will always feel like a million bucks.

 

My last experience, we all missed half the soundcheck because the usher made us buy at the merchandise table first, Matt flubbed a few acoustic songs (not complaining), and if you don't get a question answered during Q&A then how is that suppose to be a fun experience worth the money?

 

Considering the significance with this tour, all of the old fans coming out of the woodwork, all the new vinyl reissues that will sell like hot cakes during this tour, how is the VIP not Matt just walking around the Commodore floor for 30 minutes greeting & signing. People would pay more for something like that.

 

Of course the possibilities of germs or getting tired yes. But the VIP is so limited, why not make them actually interesting events celebrating the album.

 

Because you can pull off a soundcheck & group photo in every city.

 

Devin Townsend (Vancouver artist) is the last concert I went to, this is what they offered for $100. Take away the opening band stuff, add Beautiful Midnight merchandise & a couple soundcheck songs, who wouldn't pay +$200 for all that.

I'd like to add please don't consider this to be whining, this is from a huge fan who wants to spend alot of money on Matt, I put away quite a bit of change just to spend on his shows. But least meet the fans half way with some interesting things that can add to the experience.

Oh sure but knowing how he dislikes AOB I wish he'd re-record those as he would want them to be.

Looks like I'll be attending four shows.  Can't wait! I notice the advertising for this does not specifically say "Beautiful Midnight played in it's entirety"  I know Matt mentioned here that it would be, but why not advertise that fact, seems like a major draw if you ask me.  

I'm perfectly happy with the VIP the way it is.  On the AoD tour I remember you got a copy of the record, which was pretty cool and you got to meet Matt for a few seconds take a picture or whatever.  I enjoyed the whole soundcheck bit last year so much more.  I'm a fan of the music.  Sure I'd love to sit around and shoot the shit with Matt talk some Led Zeppelin, baseball or bash on Rico, but that isn't what happens in the Meet and Greets.  It's more like a "Hey, OMG, Love, Your stuff man, great show" Smile! Thanks.  So to me, getting to hear a few songs in soundcheck, especially if they differ from what might be played during the show...awesome, I'm there! 

As for the merch booth comments..I dunno I've never had an issue getting to the front of the line at the merch booth by just showing up at doors.  The tour is starting out West, so for anyone on the West Coast its unlikely they'll be plum out of sizes and stuff by the time the tour hits Vancouver three shows in.  

One last thing, what is this fan club presale business? How does one get the presale code for this?

I haven't seen an MG show since he did a one off acoustic set in NYC a couple years ago. And I haven't seen full band since 2010. Never seen him in Canada. I think the Toronto and Montreal dates would work for me logistically and geographically. Will try to make that happen.


Anybody have any notion of how to take advantage of the pre-sale on Tuesday? Is there a password or code available anywhere?

Yeah, I do miss the idea of a meet and greet.

 

I like this idea of Matt walking around the floor for 30 minutes greeting & signing. I went to Jann Arden's jewelery fundraiser for the charity Dogs with No Names recently, and she did just that. There were 100 guests maximum, and she was mingling and having casual conversations with everyone. I also enjoyed the complimentary glass of wine, and appetizers were served as well. Jann is so down to earth and a cool lady. A lot of people had their pictures taken with her. It was a fun experience overall. It would be cool if Matt did something like that.

Sorry if I missed it, but are VIP prices listed somewhere?  And will they be sold on Ticketmaster or somewhere else?

 

And passwords for the presale will be on the shows page tomorrow morning?

 

Super excited about this tour.  Not so excited about the distance I'm going to have to travel.

Commodore Ballroom is my favourite venue in Vancouver, because it's general admission 19+.

the Presale code will be on the Shows page on the website tomorrow morning. Don't rely on getting an email. The notification for the demo on the Bad Guys Win post went out a day later, after it had already come down.

 

I tried to take the morning off to get my tix tomorrow. No luck. Hoping to sneak off to the bathroom with my phone. Also hoping there's none of that Amex Front of the Line garbage. I want my front row at the NAC lol.

 

my tentative plan is Ottawa (cause I live here), VIP at the Danforth on the saturday, and Montreal. If Kingston was on the list I'd hit it too.

 

 

 

also it sucks that there's no VIP for Ottawa. I'll bet you a million bucks it's because the NAC is such a notoriously difficult/uppity venue... :/

Thanks for the info emmit. I think I'm gonna try to secure 2 tickets in either Toronto or Montreal and then work out all the logistics later. If my girlfriend can't come, I'll have a ticket to sell. If she can come, great. But I will get the tickets either way to make sure I see this. I've missed the last like 3 tours for LOES, Arrows, and CN so I don't want to miss this.

What do you think the chances of a DVD/ Live recording would be? For it is the album that got me into Matt, & one of my all time faves.

 

I live in Australia, and made the trek to Canada to see a few shows on the Hospital Music tour (Awesome!) but can't make it work this time...

 

Matt keeps hinting of coming to Oz, but nothing seems to eventuate - so a DVD just for me please?

;)

Even a youtube tour series, that would be very interesting. Maybe recording a live performance for the end of every video, then by the end of the tour it can be compiled into a full concert performance. 

You could even add that into the VIP experience too, you will be featured in the video of your tour date. 

Example: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E1XNqDAmXLc 

Also, I think a great idea for a music video for one of the revisited songs on "I Miss New Wave" is to let fans bring signs saying what "Beautiful Midnight" meant to them, splice it all together, BAM.

Interesting video example. I liked seeing the setup of their Meet and Greet. It seemed like an intimate, informal setting.

Yeah, passing through and skipping an entire province in order to tour another province always made me feel a little bad for you guys.

Meh...hasn't been the best track record for Matt when he's toured here. Seems like we've had more than our fair share of idiots at his shows. I'd go regardless (Calgary or Saskatoon) - nice that the drive will be a bit shorter though. Less money on gas = more for merch :)
