Re: DREAMWORLD TOUR

For Stockholm Globe Arena there is numbered seating on the floor in front of the stage, can that really be correct?? I refuse to sit down on a PSB concert, especially in front of the stage. What about other dates, does it say seating or standing? Nearly all of the concerts in Germany are with numbe...

Re: Weak production

What I funny coincidence - I just listened to Elysium the other day and thought how beautiful the production - and by "production" I really mean what people generally refer to when they talk about the "production" of a music album - was and how I would love to have another Andrew Dawson produced PSB...

Re: Create a "Dreamland" singles-only setlist!

It will be interesting how they view the Greatest Hits. Will it be the better charting songs in the UK and/or around the world, fan favourites of their favourites? If it goes on chart positions in the UK, theres going to be be no Dreamland or anything after 2010. Can‘t imagine them going by chart p...

Create a "Dreamworld" singles-only setlist!

Hello everybody, this is it - the inevitable "Dreamland Tour Setlist" thread. This time around, thinking of a potential setlist is slightly easier though, because we know that the boys are only going to play songs that were released as singles. So in this thread I'm asking you to come up with a 22-s...

Re: Burning the heather

What a wonderful song. Here's top hoping that after the career lowlights that were Super and Electric the new album will finally see PSB's return to form. I, for one, would love a Behavior , Release or Elysium part 2. I strongly expect the album version to be much better than this radio edit though,...

Re: Inner Sanctum - 3sat

I strongly believe that this is an error. The Czech website you cited states that this is the "preliminary plan" for 3sat on Dec 31. I just can't imagine that they'd broadcast the concert before the actual DVD release. Of the course, the alternative to this would mean that PSB will in fact release t...

Re: *Post ROH Spoilers Here ONLY..*

Grey tee is an interesting idea but not sure it's as well executed as it could be This. The album cover mash-up itself looks somewhat meh, and I believe it would look better on a black background. Then again I really like the idea. Finally a creative t-shirt. If I were there, I would probably buy o...

Re: Expectations

Well this topic has certainly fired up debate! (unsurprisingly). Personally, even though Electric and Super had good moments, I long for a return to the standard album format. A collection of proper songs I'm not overly fussed wether or not it's a Very or a Yes or a Fundemental or even an Elysium o...

Re: Letter from Neil Tennant and Chris Lowe

It would be easy to argue that this is not a letter written by the boys themselves but rather by their marketing department, sure. However, that peculiar phrase "How could you miss it!?" really stands out. It just seems so tongue-in-cheek, especially with that punctuation. After an entire paragraph ...

Re: Hello from a Pethead from Bavaria

Hi Tom! Welcome on board. It's great to see a fellow pethead from Bavaria joining our forum :-) I like how you say you "studied (...) the sound of all kinds of metall objects" - even if that makes me think more of Depeche Mode than of PSB ;) It would be nice to hear your cover version of Rent. Enjoy...

Re: The "x2 B-sides - First 10" Survivor Challenge - Round 2

Entschuldigung! and A cloud in a box.

If "Wiedersehen" doesn't end up being the last song standing in this challenge, then something is seriously wrong with you people! ;-)

Re: Live DVD's

Best. News. Ever. WDR is both a TV and a radio station. This is amazing. On the way home from Leipzig yesterday I thought about how great it would be to have a proper recording of all those amazing "new versions of old songs", as Neil puts it. If it turns out to be more than an audio recording, this...

Re: The Super Tour - Some speculation

I wrote a quite lengthy review of the show in Leipzig on the German petheads.de board where I compared it to the ROH shows that I also attended. Here are cliff notes (I don't feel like translating the entire review, sorry :D ) : - The show was absolutely amazing and had I known that the concert in L...
