No. 30, your brother's "sick" review made me laugh but was just about right on, except that Mr. Dulli only played keys on one song, their cover of Frank Ocean's Love Crimes. It was a GREAT performance of that song and his voice is sounding amazing. At the risk of being called a "street teamer" again, you should know that the 2 new cover songs, Love Crimes and See And Don't See, are available for free download on the band's website.
Joelb, I knew as soon as I saw the horns and backup singers that we would get Omerta/Vampire, which they've already played this tour, and I really was hoping for John the Baptist, which we got and was awesome (and posted above - 2nd song in the vid). What I didn't expect was Neglekted AND Citi Soleil too. The horns and backup singers were a big part of their last album 1965, but they appropriately only prominently featured the backup singers for the songs off of that album and didn't use the horns for anything but songs from that album where they were used in the original recording. In case anyone is interested in the setlist, photo below:
RE the US club tour: I have a friend who had to cancel plans to see the sold out D.C. show, Fri, Sept. 28 at the 9:30 Club. I believe she has 2 tickets and I know she wants to sell them at face value to a fan who will go to the show and not scalp it. There also may be an extra ticket or two that will come available for the sold out Cinci show at Bogart's, Thurs, Oct. 25 - again for face value to a fan who will go to the show. So to make sure that happens, usually my friends will only sell the tickets at the venue for cash the night of the show to the buyer to make sure it won't be resold to scalp. If you are interested, send me a PM and l promise to get in touch for you.
