    They play some faster, yes. Not all. They don't ramp the speed up and down inconsistently inside each song though. Last night was a lot fun, and Tegan and Sara surprised big time. Was 4 or 5 rows of people back dead center and with Pat's drum kit being so close to the front of the stage it was totally like seeing them in a small little club during their songs but when they would finish one I was pulled back into the giant room that is Staples Center. All of the songs on El Camino are a ton of fun but I wish they would leave Brothers alone a bit more than they do. When its just the two of them on stage is still the highlight of their shows, each of the three times I've seen them. Great crowd on the floor and I really like how Staples' security had everyone sit down while we waited before the opener. Kept a lot of breathing room once we got up.

    I was there last night as well. Got to the arena late, after Tegan and Sara, still ended up about 10 back on Pat's side. Really made it seem intimate. I thought they were better than at Coachella and yes, the highlight was just Dan and Pat. Loved the El Camino songs live, especially Little Black Submarines.

    Looks like plenty of room for a 2nd Muse show at Staples the next night.

    SD show is on MLK day. I think most people get work/school off for that still, right? Are you still going to see them or is the MuseRadio name going to be retired soon?

    That sure turned into a big sing along since Coachella hasn't it? Such a good song and everyone got so hyped after he switched over to the electric guitar for part 2 of the song. Nova Baby is my favorite of the newer songs

    Yup, though the NBA schedule might put a kink in that. THere's a game on the 24th, so the 2nd show would actually need to be the 22nd, the day after Gaga's 2nd night. Though they could still go to Anaheim later that week.

    Good point TheClaw...I did not think of that. Oh I will be seeing the Staples show from the first few rows 100%. Parts of of the The 2nd Law have grown on me but more importantly they are still one of the best live bands in the world I'll be there 100%. How about you Cutter? I know you'll be there one way or another too. ha.

    Yeah, the new songs look pretty good live from the videos I've seen. I'm really hoping for a 2nd LA show as that is when they break out the rare stuff. LA got Bliss last time which was great.

    Ha not so certain on that one... My past positive feelings towards muse are about equal with my current feelings. Somewhere in the "ehhh" area of the scale right about now. I'd be there with bells on if it wasnt going to be $70+~

    The one announced now is probably going to be the 2nd night chronologically which is a pain with that rarity thinking in place. That extended riff session during Stockholm night 2 2010 made that night better on its own.

    One way or another there will be a second LA show. That is a given. Staples night 2 last time was phenomenal and one of the best shows I have ever seen.

    I only went to the 2nd night and it was fantastic. The epic Stockholm Syndrome was insanely good and the aforementioned Bliss made me very happy.

    If you get there at a reasonable time neighborhood parking should be fine just pay close attention to the signs...

    And if you do find a spot, don't be too busy talking with your friend about how you skipped out on stacked parking and not having to pay. make sure you remember exactly it is what street your on. Walking back after the show after smoking and drinking all the turn offs into the neighborhood look the same ...

    The Hives outdoors at Pappy & Harriet's were absolutely entertaining fun. I had no idea the lead singer and drummer were so HOT. Gay vibes galore. The lead singer channeled Mick Jagger & Freddy Mercury with his moves. The curly haired guitar player was absolutely nuts - in a good way - and he loved having the ladies in the crowd run their fingers through his thick, curly hair. I don't know how I missed them at Coachella. Oh yeah, their music was great, too! :-)

    Maria Minerva was fucking weird and great tonight. Just her up there assaulting a microphone and tons of effects/keyboards. Crazy deconstruction of electronic dance music with live super-reverb vocals and live keyboard. Wild shit... she started with like a 5 minute harsh noise segment to wake up everyone in the bar and then proceeded to throw some really fat dance beats at us, had everyone grooving by the end of the set. Very cool, check her out if she's around. On Not Not Fun records

    Peter Gabriel is still, most definitely, the man. He did a near-2 hour, career spanning set at the Bowl tonight. The tour he's doing currently has him performing So from front to back (although not necessarily in order) as well as a smattering of his other material. It started with him and Tony Levin on stage doing a new, sparse track, then going into three other songs acoustically with the full band: Come Talk to Me (which was gorgeous), Shock the Monkey (I was concerned because it was acoustic, but they nailed it) and Family Portrait. Halfway thru Portrait, just like on the album, the band kicked into electric mode, and they went into the second set, which was the smattering. He did three more songs off Us (Digging in the Dirt, Secret World and Washing of the Water), two songs from the first album (Solsbury Hill and The Family and the Fishing Net) and a balls-out awesome version of No Self Control. I thought that would be the highlight of the night for me, but it turns out So is really a fantastic album from front to back. They played it, for the most part, in the order of the original CD release. The only change was that they moved In Your Eyes to the last track of the regular set, probably so they could more easily coordinate John Cusack coming on stage with boombox over his head and handing it to Peter. Because, yeah, that really happened.

    Then they did an encore with The Tower That Ate People from OVO, which was so fuckin' great, and closed the night with a massive sing-along to Biko. I had tears streaming down my face as I screamed, "Hear the martyr! Hear the martyr! The man is dead, the man is dead..." So yeah, Peter Gabriel's got it. Hard.

    Peter Gabriel put on one of the best shows, if not the best show, I've seen this year. I dunno if it was my good seats, but the sound was just killer. The Hollywood Bowl never gets especially loud but it could not have suited PG better. Tonight was my 10th time seeing him and surely ranks in the top 3. He broke the show down into three segments/sets- one an acoustic set, one an electric set of hits/PG classics, and one for all of So, back to front.

    Highlights musically were numerous including a driving Family Snapshot and a calming take on Come To Talk To Me. Visually he delivered with a flashy version of No Self Control which took me back about 25 years. Red Rain and Excellent Birds really shined from So. The armed lights used during the So tour I saw in 1987 made an appearance, updated from just one beam to three beams per pod. I just cannot get over the production! The Tower That Ate People was used as an encore and really capped off the visual assault. Typical PG glory with his voice in top form. Gotta get to work on making it up to Santa Barbara on Tuesday.

I held off on buying SB tickets and now realize I need to figure it out.

    A couple more thoughts on tonight-

    I've never been a big fan of Family and the Fishing Net off Security. But Peter loves it. He often plays it on tour. I missed both San Jacinto and Rhythm of the Heat from that album. Also, Up was not represented at all. I expected maybe Signal To Noise or Darkness. But ok. I'm just nitpicking at this point!

    Btw, In Your Eyes was the last track on the remastered version of So. It was always going to be the last song of the set and he normally closes with it and usually encores with Biko (like tonight). Nice little bit with Cusack.

    Peter Gabriel was amazing and blew the lid off the joint. Although the opener sucked and should stick to playing coffee shops. She was embarrassing and sucked the life out of the bowl, but Gabriel came on and brought it back.

    You do know she was the main singer for Don't Give Up and most of the backup singing throughout PG's performance, right? I agree with you on the whole. But Peter often gives either people on his label or artists who play in the main part of his show a chance to open up for him.

    Yes Sir. I was hoping for Kate Bush and got whatever her name was. A guy can dream can't he. Obviously I am being tough on her as her voice was fine, but its Peter Gabriel!

    Anyone going to New Order tomorrow? Should be fun.
