    i think you're setting yourself up for dissapointment buddy.
    back when calvin used to do live sets witha full band he was awesome. but since he has started only djing he has become just another average run of the mill cheese house dj.
    also that awooga song is easily the worst song hes ever made.

    I agree, Awooga is straight awful. It's like Scottish Brostep.

    Feel So Close is much better, and I hope it's the direction his next album. You Used To Hold Me is still has a special place in my mind. That said, he's one of the few who also does vocals and does them well. I'm optimistic.

    I agree. I like "Feel So Close" and I even like "Bounce" (but that's partially because I like Kelis so much).
    But his vocals don't really factor into his set because it's going to be a DJ set. He doesn't do live sets anymore.

    When he played at pacific fest last year, he just regurgitated a shorter version of his essential mix. Cool to hear on big speakers but weak that he gave 0 effort.

    yea and then when him and aoki were going to battle the speakers blew out... probably a good thing, anything aoki touches usually turns into fecal matter

    Calvin Harris is terrible live. Don't fool yourselves into thinking his live set is any better than his DJ sets.

    Calvin Harris' live set in 2008 was one of the most fun shows I've ever been to.

    WHAT HAPPENED???!?!

    I'll never forgive CH for ditching the live band...

    i just dont get it. is it for more control/consistency? laziness? not having to share $$$ with the backing band?

    ok i googled it, damn. not nearly as excited to see him now :/

    Speaking to the Herald Sun last week, Harris revealed the next phase of his career would be as a DJ and producer instead of an ‘artist’, saying that he’s “not cut out for that role”.

    “From now on forever I’ll be in DJ mode. I’ve stopped the live shows,” he began. “It was great fun but I’m just not cut out for that role. I kind of fell into it a few years ago, the live show had to happen, I had to be the frontman because I was doing the vocals on the songs. It went all right. I spent a few years trying to get it really properly good but it dawned on me it wasn’t going to get much better. I’ve taken the singing thing as far as I can… I’m not a singer. I’m not trained. Taking it onto the stage in front of people was terrifying. I got much, much better at it but I never lost the terror.”

    Transforming into a full-time DJ, Harris explained that playing DJ sets was “more fun” and gave him an opportunity to be “really good” at something instead of what he saw as a merely adequate live entity.

    He is at the point now where it would have to say live set next to his name to mean a live set. He doesn't do live sets anymore and Over the past 3 years all he has done is DJ. Hopes dashed.

    I've seen him DJ twice, and the track listings were the same. I'd avoid his set like the plague. And to think he use to be one of my favorite artists.

    I last saw him at Hard Haunted Mansion 2010, his set was pretty subpar. Didn't play anything off I Created Disco, just a few tracks from Ready For The Weekend and boring contemporary electro. I agree with you though, it's going to be a rough one to watch this year. What the fuck happened to that guy...

    I am very sad that I saw the video for the human synth a few years ago and he just flaked out on that shit.

    If he plays that stupid fucking Rihanna song I'll lose every shred of respect I have left for him. The worst part is that I feel like there's a legitimate chance he will... Not that I'll even be around for it.

    I was wondering what kind of set he was going to have. I saw him at Hard Haunted a few years ago and he was basically mixing his stuff with top 40s trash trash. But i think he was on tour with Rihanna during this time so it doesn't surprise me. But I'm guessing we wont hear anything off I Created Disco? And no live set

    My ideal Calvin set would consist mostly of I Created Disco and Ready For The Weekend. As far as his newer stuff goes I hate "Awooga," but I love "Feel So Close," so I hope he plays that. But more than likely I'll have a major conflict during his set and won't be seeing him.
