Re: Unity Tour Spoilers & Reviews

We are used to 22+ songs, more b-sides being played. Something for even the die hard fans thrown in. ...but we're getting a version of that here too. 'Losing my mind' is a b-side to a single released 31 years ago. Some of the songs have new intros and arrangements. It's not like they're just pressi...

Re: Unity Tour Spoilers & Reviews

We're talking hypotheticals here and you're fixated on the number of dates as if that's not also something that could be changed. The reality is there are 13 dates. If wishes were horses... I think it's perfectly reasonable to expect some variation from the previous tour given not only the above fa...

Re: Unity Tour Spoilers & Reviews

Stripped-down gigs in their dotage without any bells and whistles, semi-acoustic with storytelling between songs is the tour I wanna see. Yeah, the Release tour was great and I'd love to see another one like it. Something like Kylie's Anti-Tour, with deep cuts etc. But let's be honest, it probably ...

Re: Unity Tour Spoilers & Reviews

I get that your reasons for defending the tour the way it is, but it there is nothing wrong with being constructively critical of the art we consume. Even if we don't have a solution doesn't mean we don't have a right to be disappointed. Constructive criticism would take the reality of the economic...

Your behavior is in this thread is just like my four-year-old nephew's when told why the sky can't be plaid. The awkward part is that you've already told us you're in your late forties...

Re: Unity Tour Spoilers & Reviews

We have two bands with 40+ years of culturally defining moments with millions of die hard collectors and overlapping fans who buy *everything* they put forth, yet neither have the confidence to stray far from their top 40 catalog ls in concert? They need to have more respect for their audiences and...

Re: Unity Tour Spoilers & Reviews

Not Invisible we did offer suggestions as to what they could change. I think that's how we've got into this stupid to and fro debate. You didn't like our suggestions I think they were fine suggestions. They just weren't realistic suggestions considering the time and expense required to achieve them...

Re: Unity Tour Spoilers & Reviews

A slightly different set from NO tonight. Man, I hope they didn’t blow all their profit swapping one song for another! So now we're moving the goalposts to updating the setlist, presumably having admitted you have no practical answers to the economic and logistical challenges outlined above. Pet Sh...

Re: Unity Tour Spoilers & Reviews

You’re right. This is the best they could do. It’s literally impossible to achieve anything better or more creative. Shane on me for thinking otherwise. I didn't say this was the best they could do (although I disagree it's a bad show, considering it's a hits setlist with a unique show never before...

Re: Unity Tour Spoilers & Reviews

You’re just being argumentative at this point Nope. I'm asking a question you can't seem to answer, and pointing out that the Unity tour exists in the very specific context of a shared billing (e.g. not a fan audience) and 13 dates (e.g. less opportunity to amortize costs). I was clearly providing ...

Re: Unity Tour Spoilers & Reviews

If they had literally recycled the exact same costumes and staging from any of the last five tours and then, at the changeover, played two or three electronic songs on acoustic instruments, I’d be thrilled. So your idea of "being creative" is... recycling costumes and staging from previou...
