I’m hoping the “encore” occurs between the bands and is comprised of two or three Electronic songs. That would make for the best segue between the two bands and it isn’t dependent on the order they play. Having two separate encores is just a waste of time when time will be limited.
I sincerely *love* Disco 2 and listen to it straight through regularly.

Tickets at the front of the Hollywood Bowl show are on sale for $1950. Just a regular ticket. Jesus.

They've added a second Hollywood Bowl date - tickets on sale next week. I am sorely tempted.
Yep, the ticket prices are all over the place. $1950 is too rich for my blood even for my musical heroes.

A second date eh? Interesting. I wonder if they'd consider doing that anywhere else? NO did two dates in Toronto at the Sony Centre some time ago (smaller venue but sold out both shows and PSB sell out there comfortably every time) but only one at Bud Stage last time (again sold out comfortably). It's not inconceivable that with the PSB/NO double bill they could fill Bud Stage twice over I suppose.

To be honest though I'm not one for going multiple times to a show even at different venues. I went twice to the Electric tour (Toronto and Windsor) and Toronto was AMAZING and Windsor was horrible. Not the show - both times the Boys rocked it - but the venue made all the difference. The Casino in Windsor is a soul destroying cesspool of a place.

I'm thinking about the inevitable comparison in the press reviews that will come in during the course of this tour. I'm rather expecting everyone to dote over NO and feel lacklustre about PSB, but I really hope I'm wrong and that it's the reverse.

Having seen both in the past couple of years, PSB put on a far better show, IMHO. There were a few nice things going on at the last NO concert I saw, but nothing that particularly got my heart pumping. I like the drama of a PSB concert, and NO just kind of go out and do their thing. Sure, what they do is great, but they're musicians and I don't feel they're as invested in the artistic spectacle as PSB are.

I think overall though this tour will give PSB some really good exposure in North America.

The first show was the best selling on Wednesday in the U.S of ANY concert.

The shows are seven months away and have been on sale for two days. Two days. They’ll sell out.

So looks like ticket prices fluctuate based on demand and if after market tickets (verified resell ticket) are being offered also, check the above link explaining it.

I would have preferred the new Saturday date as traffic is a bit lighter.

Yes, the Hollywood Bowl October 2 show has already sold out. The tickets available are resale tickets which fluctuate based on market prices.
I may try to get October 3 (Saturday tickets) once they go on sale, since that is a Saturday show and if I do get them I may sell the Oct. 2 tickets, as for that show I'd have to miss most of the work that day, plus deal with the Friday traffic. :lol:

This concert sounds really cool. Hope you all have a lovely time. :D I will not be going as that is too far for us. We are rapidly becoming "pipe and slippers" now minus the pipe lol... Is it really five hours long though? :shock:

It's an absolute extravagance for me and the wife - helps that she's always been a bit of a New Order fan as well and for me it's like a dream come true so splashing out on this. I could get extra greedy and hope for a brief Depeche Mode cameo (not gonna happen of course and just as well as I'd explode!)

Anyways - would be quite happy with 5 hours though it won't be that long - 3 hrs probably more realistic.

In Toronto kick off at 7, assuming it's on time and will be over around 11 as that's the city curfew for noise level, and with the stage switch between bands you're probably right at 3 hours of actual content.

Great you guys are all going - I’m dead jealous!
Anyone get me a programme?
Just for the sake of it, make sure you're always frowning. :|
It shows the world that you've got substance and depth.

Just seen a TV spot promoting the San Francisco show on ABC.

When was the last time we had TV promotion for a PSB show? Very cool.

I did video it but I don’t know how to post on here.
