Looking forward to seeing Bif Naked, Big Wreck and Matt Good at the Beaumont Blues & Roots Festival. I love road trips. Hopefully, Matt will share a few stories from his vacation in Italy.

I was just coming on here to see if anyone had posted anything, lol. Thanks, man! 

Just out of curiosity, did he do the BM version of Load Me Up or the BM Revisited version? 

And how was the show over all?

The concert was amazing. The band sound even better with age, if that’s even possible. It looked like they were having a great time on stage. They were smiling a lot at each other, especially Stuart. He must really love what he does. It showed on stage. It was cool to see that. The Beautiful Midnight songs sounded fresh and new, especially Get It On. I had to do a double-take on that song. I thought I never heard or didn’t hear that song in many, many years. Load Me Up sounded like the BM version and Born to Kill sounded a little different to me. I enjoyed hearing those songs. Overall, they sounded great.

I attended the show with PlasticSoldier and was really impressed with this being a festival performance.  At these shows I expect the singles/bit hits but how they were put in to the set and surrounded by other non singles was great. 

The band played for over 90 minutes (went on at 10:30PM), it was overcast, windy and cold but that didn't deter them as they put on a solid set.  When you realize this is the first band performance of the year you would expect there to be some rust but it didn't come up.  MG may have missed a lyric or two but we're probably all a bit fatigued when coming back from vacation :).  MG also removed his shoes during the encore because he got a blister, perhaps the Italian footwear needs a little more break in time.  

The Beautiful Midnight Revisited tour did exactly what I wanted as I wished to get b-sides in to the main set and with Boy And His Machine Gun and Born to Kill making an appearance I was a happy camper (I also love Future is X-Rated, but it's slightly more common than the others).  As Rhu8ar8Pi3 mentioned the Let's Get It On inclusion was a pleasant surprise and I also questioned myself if I heard the opening chords correctly too.  I really enjoy how this song was re-recorded and it is a thrill to hear live.  

Adam_777 will appreciate this...MG referenced playing the ending of In a World Called Catastrophe across a highway.  And that was it.  He acknowledged the song but didn't play it. Maybe next time.  

Unless NonPopulus surprised us and attended the show I don't think there will be a multi-source edit of the show so I went ahead and tracked mine out.  You can check out a song sample here: https://soundcloud.com/sean-gursky/matthew-good-decades-june-21-2019.

The Roxodus festival next weekend has been cancelled.  

Apparently the airport it's being held at has had way too much rain, and they can't put the festival on.  They looked for other options, but nothing was available, so they're cancelling the whole thing. 

It might become a sticky situation, because there's fine print on the tickets that say no refunds in any case.  Lot of people spent a lot of money for tickets and camping, so I'm curious to see what happens.

Did anyone go to the show in Grand Bend? I'm looking at the setlist for the show am curious if the last 3 songs were written with the "/" symbol simply because who ever wrote the set list was lazy or because all 3 of those songs were combined.
