    Default How is DJ Shadow live ?

    I've been a fan for a while but have never seen him live.

    Good ? Bad ??

    Opinions please.

    This last tour was crap! All of Shadow's new stuff blows donkeys, big time.

    The classics still sounded good, and the visuals they were running were cool. Overall, underwhelming.

    I've seen him about 6 times since the Endtroducing tour and every time was amazing.

    ive got to agree. the new stuff is pop shit but i hope he plays his older stuff. shadow's a big part of why im going to coachella so i have expectations...

    He was really good in 99 at coachella, I'd be lying if i wasn't a little worried by his hip-pop make over he did on the recent record. Terrible.

    As long he doesnt play his new stuff with those crappy MCs, everything will be good.

    Brilliant! But then again, that was during Coachella 99...sunset...beautiful music...

    After the new album, I feel it will be a different experience...

    Never let me down live (saw him at least seven times...lost count), recent albums are a different story though. His set will be legendary if Zack showed up and performed march of death w/ him...

    I saw him at creamfields in Liverpool this year, had no idea he even HAD new stuff, and was totally dissappointed! I was expecting something of organ donor caliber, and I got serious pop hiphop instead. He even brought in really bad guests, to plug their really bad pop! I have to give mixed reviews, because it depends on what he is playing appperently. I saw him about 4 years ago, and it was an awesome show!

    He's a little full of himself, but in an endearing way. It's hard to explain. I think he stops the music too often just to talk. But overall his live sets are great!:

    first time i saw him, (private press tour) was amazing. anti-pop consortium opened, and then he played this documentary, 'keep in time,' which was a short thing with old jazz drummers playing killer beats and then popular turntablists performing the same beat through records and scratching.
    saw him on the recent tour - the new stuff is meh, but the old stuff sounded as good as ever. if he goes on at the same time as peeping tom or brazilian girls, see them if you've already seen shadow. unless cut chemist shows up and they do some crazy shit.

    i'm hoping shadow is over the hyphy thing and does some really forward thinking material, as well as some classics.

    endtroducing was seminal
    unkle took it up a notch
    private press was interesting
    but i was disappointed in the outsider

    hoping for the best and to see more of the video/audio experiments he previewed for the private press tour

    hope zdlr joins him, so they can play "March of Death" - now that would be cool
