    I suspect part of the reason they did 6 fewer songs on Saturday (and probably are doing the same number of songs at each of their performances here) is because it's part of a tour. The Hollywood Bowl show in 2011 was a one-off and if I recall correctly, neither act had been on the road for a while. It's a lot easier for Robyn to play 2 hours and dance her ass off for 20 songs when she's only gotta do it one night instead of over the course of an entire tour, short as that tour may be.

    Man, that's a great venue to see this great show in. If it wasn't so close to our Arcade Fire Montreal trip, I'd seriously consider trying to sell Jen on going there.

    I thought you posted a Robyn video on Facebook last week and expressed excitement about seeing her? Or am I mistaken or did your account get hacked?

    We saw Zhala at Bestival last year. Middle of the day and she came out with a girl on crutches who did a dance routine while seated on a bed. Weirdest fucking thing. I got kind of excited thinking they were going to les out, but alas, they kept it PG. But yeah, her music's enjoyable enough and I'd be interested in hearing a full-length album.

    Eh... I mean, I see where you're going there... but that setlist at the 2011 Bowl show was pretty much in line with her setlists from touring on her own at the time. Just with the added bonus of Royksopp coming out during The Girl & The Robot and None of Dem...

    I thought the show was good but slow down. They'd probably be like 9pm Outdoor.

    Wish it was just Röyksopp though, love too many of their songs.

    Would love to see them headline, especially Röyksopp.

    Go back a few years and read the drama about Arcade Fire headlining for the first time. Every time there is a new headliner, people scream that they shouldn't be a headliner. I thought the Strokes co-headlining a few years ago was complete and utter shite. A Robyn/Royksopp combo seems way more feasible than that.

    i don't have to go back and read it, and the fact that people bitched about it seems irrelevant. Arcade Fire had already headlined Lolaapalooza and drew a pretty equal crowd to Soundgarden (their #1 headliner that year) at their first reunion show that wasn't at a 1200 person venue. They also headlined Bonnaroo a few months later. Sure, some of the headliners suck, Jack Johnson and the Killers, and the Black Keys to name a few, but to deny that they had put in their dues and had the ability to pull a headliner-sized crowd is just stubbornness.

    Shit, remember the ''Who the fuck is Outkast'' twitter onslaught after the lineup this year? Equating morons complaining to ''They shouldn't headline'' is silly. I wouldn't complain if by some miracle Royksopp ends up on the top line but to think it's a pipe-dream. That's all I'm saying.

    The last two years of Coachella have been the least headliner-driven I've ever seen, and I think we're increasingly getting to a place where it really doesn't much matter who headlines. In terms of audience, Muse and Arcade Fire essentially played to draw against Pharrell and Disclosure, right? "Anything's possible" may soon be less of a punchline than we think.

    Also, Calvin Harris drew the biggest crowd of the weekend and he was on 3rd that night. Headliners, unless it's something ridiculous like Zeppelin or something, really don't seem to mean much anymore.

    I WAS excited to see her. Then she didn't play Fembot or Don't Fucking Tell Me What To Do, and the entire thing turned into a way overdone pop meh fest. As soon as Royksopp got back on the stage and actually dropped a beat with some balls, I was so fucking relieved.

    Zhala was silly, and looked really out of place on a huge stage with her goofball little setup. I couldn't get into it.

    Robyn has a few tracks that I half enjoy. The lasers were good.

    I would think they'd book them for mostly combined songs and put them on the main stage or Sahara. No way they'd get a 2+ hour set.

    Yeah I was just bummed that I didn't get to see her back in 2011 or whenever the fuck she put that album out, 'cause that must have been a pretty good show. I do have to give her credit though, not necessarily sure that she did this at your show as well, but the balls it took for her to go into Dancing On My Own and when it reached the FIRST chorus to just completely drop all the music and make the crowd sing not one but TWO sets of the chorus was ballsy as shit. Usually you can maybe get a crowd to do that for one of the last sets of the chorus after they've already heard it once or twice, but she was just like, "Fuck you, sing it now! Oh shit, you didn't quite remember how the second group starts, did you? SING IT ANYWAY!"

    Why does this have to be a dual set rather than just a Robyn set? I'm seeing them next month so maybe I'll get it then, but it seems like full sets from each would be better.

    Jack Johnson sells millions of records, is on the radio constantly, and had played Coachella prior to 2008. Awful headliner no doubt, but it shouldn't have been that big of a surprise.


    EDIT* I'm still wondering why Royksopp have never played this thing. I mean, I'm sure GV has approached them at least once.

    I was there this past Saturday in San Francisco for their show at the Bill Graham Civic Center and I was blown away. I missed Zhala due to traffic because we forgot it was Pride weekend in the city (we came from the central valley, Modesto area). Due to the festivities the parking garage took a while to get too and was packed. We got in just as Zhala was ending so I caught the tail end of her last song. It was a waiting game at that point for Royksopp to come on and HOLY SHIT did they blow my mind. I've been waiting 10 years to see them and I've missed every chance which have been few though. It really seemed like they were having a lot of fun though which sent off a great vibe. I freaked out when they opened up with The Drug and got even more excited to hear Eple and Poor Leno. All around great set. Then Robyn came on. THIS WOMEN CAN PUT ON A SHOW!!! I remember catching part of her set at Coachella 2011 but the tent was packed and I remember wanting to see someone else. I think I might have went back to the camp site to get ready to go see Chemical Brothers. Anyways, She blew me away. She had the crowd in the palm of her hands it seemed like. Then came the dual set which I thought was phenomenal and I perfect way to end it all. All the songs on the Do It Again mini album sound great live and you can tell they are having a blast. It may be because it's still really early on in the tour but still an all around fun night. The only spoiler of the night was during "None of Dem" (they're encore song) some tall bro'd out guy with his hussy girlfriend pushed a 55+ elderly lesbian women that was standing next to us which he was pushing to the front (during the last song even). I shoved him and told him to back off and relax. He faded into the crowd after that. As far as seeing them next year at Coachella. I WANT IT SO BAD but I don't know if it'll be the same thing. A Royksopp set alone would get me there. Throw Jamiroqui in there and my money will be well spent. I have a feeling this tour is a one time thing seeing as how both of them are working on new music (Robyn played some new songs in LA from what I understand). I'm not getting my hopes up but one can dream. As to what stage they play, I don't give a shit. I'LL BE THERE.

    It's weird to me that those would be the songs you two were clamoring for. Love "Fembot" and all but I don't feel it's in the stratosphere of "Call Your Girlfriend" or "Indestructible" or "Dancing On My Own," and the "Don't Fucking Tell Me What To Do"/"We Dance to the Beat" mash-up that she did on the 2010-11 tour was my least favorite part of each set I caught.

    Where were you during her set at Coachella? She had the Mojave going OFF. I was pretty much uninterested in seeing the Chemical Brothers afterward because I knew it wasn't going to compare.

    And sure, if they don't headline but each play separate individual sets in addition to a joint performance, and those appearances were spread out over at least 2 days, I would be pretty happy with that as well.

    I walked up to the tent in 2011 but saw the size of the crowd and was like, "oh fuck no, I cannot handle that." Then as I was turning around, she hit the stage and Fembot starting blasting. I had to stop and shake my ass a little, but after that I fled the throng.

    Fembot is great live, but Don't Fucking Tell Me doesn't work well live...it's mostly backing tracks.

    a) because it's time for Royksopp to be there and Robyn to return and b) they are releasing music together and they're touring together.

    It's not hard.

    Standing in the middle of a big gay Robyn sing-along WAS fun, sincerely it was, but honestly when you bookend her music with two sets of Royksopp it kinda reveals the shallowness of her production quality. I don't mean "shallow" in a superficial way, I mean you can distinctly hear that it's missing entire spectrums of tones compared to what Royk are doing.

    I just gotta throw in some support for this one. Considering tickets to their NY show vanished immediately, and I've never seen scalped ones below $200, this would be my only chance to see them together. Gonna be such a great show!

    A 50-60 sub headline spot seems like a waste. And having them as a top line act is a bit ambitious.

    Can they do a 75 sub spot like My Bloody Valentine in 2009 or a full 100-120 minute set to close out the Sahara?

    Yes please for the latter option. Put them against The Black Keys should they return next year.
