    Saw Muse on Saturday at Staples and The Who last night at Honda Center, both great shows. Band of Skulls and Vintage Trouble were great openers though I'd have to give the edge to Vintage Trouble with their infectious live energy. (Keep in mind I was at the barrier for the former and across in the nosebleeds for the latter.)

    Got in line for Muse around 3:30, snagged a spot one row behind the barrier to the left. The setup was pretty insane and, minus the 'pyramid', reminded me of The Police's semi-in-the-round setup in '07. My memories of seeing Muse at the Forum in '07 are vague, but looking back at a few video clips that show seemed a little looser and not afraid to show a little more musicality. This was a highly arranged show, which I enjoy, and it was fun being up front, but definitely felt like a stadium show in an arena. Hardly any banter, which may have been the case the time before. Matt Bellamy looked ridiculous with his puffy shirt and cum-gelled hair. He also wore some type of electronic sunglasses during "Madness". The setlist was much better than expected - they played "Map of the Problematique" (my favorite) AND "Hysteria" (which I can't believe they're dropping from the set). Looking at the other nights' setlists I think I lucked out as one less familiar with Showbiz/Origin.

    Question: Is it common practice for security to be constantly stepping up on the barrier and shining flashlights in people's faces for significant lengths of time to deter them from filming the show? Because that's what was going on and it was annoying. People aren't going to stop, anyway, if he can't get to them. Why detract from everyone else's enjoyment?

    Our seats for The Who were good, for nosebleeds. Opposite end of the arena, head on view. They played all of Quadrophenia which admittedly I wasn't familiar with so I gave it a few spins yesterday. It's really good, probably better than Tommy. So that was nice, they didn't say a word to the audience until the 80-minute performance was done and then they played a smattering of hits starting with "Who Are You" (a personal highlight). They played all the major songs I wanted to hear minus "My Generation" and "Can't Explain", neither of which were really essential for me. All in all much more enjoyable than I expected. Even though there's only two originals left the touring band was pretty remarkable. Zac Starkey (Ringo's son!) pulled off Keith Moon pretty damn well. On bass was Pino Palladino who I first learned about from the John Mayer Trio. And Pete Townshend's son was in the band as well.

    Mix of the band playing songs with the orchestra and without. Hopefully its not a short set.

    I would expect even more. Hopefully they get some real good openers for that show.

    I could care less. He gets his information out, even if he can be off putting about it. Ive seen the xx, and wouldnt pay that much for them, but if it was reasonable i would go.

    Its all good man i understand. yeah I would think the same, but Hollywood Bowl seems notorious to charge more then usual for some bands as of the last two years. either way this show will probably get scalped to death just like their other LA shows have been

    You're paying for the building as much as you are the bands. Inflation is a bitch. Gone are the days The Bowl had 2 dollar bench seats. And considering you dont get a chance to be able to buy a lot of the prime seats due to the people who pay for them year in and year out including the brokers, what can you do. Also, ''scalping to death'' 5% of the capacity of a venue is hardly somethign to bitch about. Then again, its all the good seats. And you know The Bowl auctions off all the good seats for leases and some of the bowl events, right?

    Well last year I had the best luck Ive ever had with tickets there. 3rd row pool for both Florence and Mumford(first two rows were right in front, not sure what that is though) so its doable if you get lucky enough. I wouldnt think the people that pay are very interested in The XX, but maybe not. I understand its a pricey venue though.

    In 6 months the XX had no problems selling close to 9,000 tickets across 3 shows in L.A. I thin you guys are underestimating their popularity, especially when they end up stacking the show with very desirable openers.

    I'm sure they won't have a problem filling it if it's within a certain price range, anything above $80 or so for good seats is going to be a tough sell for them, regardless of openers. But I'm sure they won't price it that high, the people behind it know the consumer demographic pretty fucking well for a gig like this.
