WixRocks!:I'm tuning out for a good ten minutes for LMRI and the Hendrix story...the only thing that could liven that shtick up on Friday would be raising Hendrix from the dead.
Does he think his concerts just disappear after they happen? These are memories in peoples' minds...they're documented on disc...people come back, especially in a place like New York City. He has told that Hendrix story at ever single NY area appearance for at least the past twelve years if not longer. I don't know. And I know he now says "if you've seen the show before, you'll know..." but it's not just that. GENYC gets a lot of airplay on concert channels. People are VERY familiar with the program, not just the "fans on the run"...
Weren't you the last LMRI apologist? Jeez... we really need a heavy shake-up.
And yeah, the "once in a lifetime crowd" has been served very well in 2002-2005 and 2009-2013 already. I predicated this before he even announced the gigs, but in Europe he didn't do his reputation any favours the last tour. I'm afraid we won't see him back. And it's at last going to happen in the ever forgiving US crowd now as well, the way things are looking.
How often can The New York Times review virtually the same show? The lack of buzz and ticket sales says enough. It doesn't have to be like this, but we all know McCartney thinks 40 songs rotated across 5 years is enough.
