It boggles the mind that they were HERE in America for Ultra with all their peoples and gear and did NOT venture out to a few more cities. I understand it costs money and it's cheaper for DJ sets, but this is sum shit.
Basement Jax should do an album/tour with Cut Copy. Eh, eh?
Please don't ever post Basement Jaxx and Cut copy in the same sentence again. You're talking about a band who plays a backing track for most of the show. I mean, one of the dudes stands there with a guitar around his neck and spends most of the time not playing it. Go figure.
3/20 Eric Clapton @ MSG

Felix did an AMA on reddit tonight. Regarding stateside shows:
Your live shows are that of legend here in the US. Do you sometime regret making it so big that it hinders your ability to take it on the road?
Coachella needs some Basement Jaxx LIVE this year!
We don't have to make the live show as big as it is-but we want to, cos it's better like that. Yes, we would love to be at Coachella. We loved it last time.. But we haven't been invited because "we're not a hot enough act" at the moment
Will you guys ever bring the live show back to the states for a small tour? Miami this year was great, but a few more cities of shows (non DJ sets) is something a lot of us here in America want to experience. Seems the rest of the world gets the live sets, haha!
it's all about the costs of putting it on-we have to get enough people to cover the costs-i'm quite happy to make no profit..but it's still expensive to do a live show-i'm looking forward to doing the Hollywood Bowl again,Central Park New York,Red Rocks..out in the sticks too
