  1. Howard Stern interviewing Neil Young. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r10yjyCTcII
  2. I will never run out of love for this man. A song I've heard 10,000 times = still gives me goosebumps thanks for sharing
  3. Spaced on the onsale date but I do plan on hitting up this show. It's just stupid that I haven't yet seen this band. Of course, I'll put on something nice that night. Nice and sexy.
  4. I think the formal attire/costume request thing is great, good for them. Sounds like a great time. I really want to try to score an ACC ticket.

Trey made several comments during the show regarding his affinity for the venue. Hood included a small vocal jam during the intro.
  6. whoops, the TO show is on there: sold out at 47k.
  7. I'm not sure I saw the TO figures here but it looks that tour did unbelievably well: http://www.billboard.com/biz/current-boxscore (as of Oct 2/2013)
  8. to make sure others understand, they Phish and DMB are up there because presumably Red Light dumped ALL of Summer sales to Billboard just this week. When Madonna or Depeche Mode or he Red Hot Chili peppers tour and those numbers get released, they flood the weekly list. Again, this is not a list of The Most Successful Acts Of 2013, it's simply a list of what new info Billboard got this week. None of these will carry over to next week's listings. Not saying you didn't get that Sean, just clarifying in general.
  9. Billboard magazine, as I am sure most know, is the industry "bible" and the "Boxscore" listings are the numbers submitted by promoters/venues and management companies regarding ticket sales. What you see on that list are just what was submitted to Billboard in the past week. Next week could have listings that predate those you see in this week's. Fudging the numbers in any way is a sure fire way to get you blacklisted. Good or bad, it is expected that the numbers are reported. These numbers are as accurate as can be. Venues, promoters and all sorts use these as a means of monitoring how acts and markets are faring. The Stones toured last May. Gotta google this shit. http://pulsemusic.proboards.com/thread/132431/billboard-boxscore-06-22-13?page=1&scrollTo=4384285 there's the Canadian show numbers. Sell outs.

  11. Just got back. While the festival was often underwhelming musically, I had a wonderful day in a beautiful setting. I will definitely go back to this festival again; maybe not annually, but I will return for sure. A few musical notes: Emmylou Harris's set was hands-down the highlight. She was sublime - what a voice! - and her song choices were top-notch. Gordon Lightfoot, I'm afraid to say, was unbelievably disappointing. I've seen him a half-dozen times so i know he's not the most dynamic performer, but they might as well have just rolled out a nice cot so he could lie down and croak his way through particularly wimpy versions of so many classic songs. Plus they cut the volume down by half because 'ol Gord doesn't like things loud. Ugh. Daniel Lanois's set was trippy, expansive and inspired. Enjoyed it very much. Terra Lightfoot played a smokin' 15 minute set on the second stage - she's just a delight, a real talent. Pegi Young and her band played a set of songs that ranged from all-right, to servicable, to just bad; but the musicians on stage were fantastic. They were just playing bad songs and Pegi Young is not a great singer. Got to meet her though, what a sweet lady! Martha Wainwright played a beautiful set; never seen her before. It was great to see Emmylou side stage catching every song. Trixie Whitley (who?) was irritating. Finally, it was a thrill for me to see Hamilton guitar legend Brian Griffith play a short set of solo electric guitar that floored everyone who was there at the second stage to check it. It's always fun to see an old friend impress. What a pain about the ticket situation. I'm still so glad I went. Finally, weather was perfect, the food stalls were varied and interesting, and Steam Whistle cans were $5, and icy cold. Amen.
  12. Nice. bass player would be Rock Rosas, who has played with Neil in various incarnations over the past 25 years. He's Neil's go-to guy. The piano player is Spooner Oldham. A true legend. Any audience should treat his presence as a treat and with due respect. I look forward to hearing him play! http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spooner_Oldham
  13. about as much as Jerry Garcia sitting in with The Arkells, I imagine.
  14. word I heard is that TM strongly insisted that full refunds should be made available to those who wanted them. Promoters said "thanks for the advice but, no".
