Re: Is Bowie defying expectations with A Reality Tour? new [re: pablopicasso]  

In reply to:

So what are peoples' views on A Reality tour now





I think the tour kind of sucks, i saw him in a large bad sounding hockey arena, it was one of the worst bowie concerts i have ever seen. The next few reality shows i see are in small venues so i'm sure the shows will be much better.

Re: Is Bowie defying expectations with A Reality Tour? new [re: pablopicasso]  

I've seen 4 shows so far and have one more to go. 3 of the 4 I've been floors close to, if not at front, one time non-floors. Only reason I'm saying that is to express that you get a different show if you're right up there, or if you're in the stands. I couldn' dance in the stands, but could go nuts down front and was around others who could totally relate to the amazing show unfolding before us. Don't get me wrong... I had a ball at all the shows; but they all had a different feel to me.

Defying expectations? Well, yeah he did, but only because I'd only seen him once in '87 and frankly, couldn't remember any details from that show - had crappy seats and a crappier memory. LOL

I think my favourite show so far was Ottawa. There was just a vibe there (although Quebec was awesome too). I was in front of Slicky both shows and he just blew me away.

David's voice is absolutely incredible... I can't get over how amazing he sounds. The band is tight and I really tried to focus on different members at different times of the show too. They all look like they're having fun too, which gives it a real party atmosphere up front.

I rather got a kick out of the Polyphonic Spree, by the way. I know people are split on them - to each his/her own, I guess. They were fun and I thought they were a good start to the evening. You've got to see beyond the robes, people. There's nothing wrong with a little "happy happy" every once in a while, even if just to counter all the serious/we're doomed types of stuff we get inundated with because it sounds cooler. I actually got their CD - it's good to listen to when you need a "pick-me-up", but I like them better live. Tim DeLaughter has so much energy on stage - just find him kind of contageous, huge smile, gleaming eyes and all.

prrrrr

I pray you'll soothe my sorry soul

Rock on and on and on ad infinitum new [re: pablopicasso]  

In reply to:

I didn't want to be accused of the dreaded THBDB!


Now would I ever do that ?

I think the tour is going from strength to strength, i only hope his voice lasts out, its really a huge tour, maybe this is the biggest yet?.

Im longing for the "Live in Dublin" DVD release, when ever! that might be

Looking back now to the DVD that came with the Reality combo tour edition, it looks rather quite compared to the tour, yes I know it was a television studio, but none the less, it seems quite subduded, a gem none the less, for me to see him sing "Try Some,Buy Some" live, i really love that song.

Re: Rock on and on and on ad infinitum new [re: diamondogz74]  

I so agree with you on that DVD.

I remember when we went to see the Reality "release" at the theatre, I thought he and band were just fantastic. Then, when I first got and watched the DVD release I couldn't help but think that they just didn't sound as tight and he seemed unsure/nervous??, I don't know. Just goes to show how much they improve as the tour goes on. They just keep getting better and better. I've only watched the DVD once though, I'll have to have another look at it. (I thought he looked older and tired in it too... bags under the eyes and all).

Nothing compares to him being right in front of you and his interactions with the audience; he totally feeds off the crowd's excitement & reaction (or lack of). A few times he kneeled right in front of us singing - I can't even remember the song now . Sex on legs (or knees), he is.

I have a fan recorded DVD of the Connecticut concert and it looked great, good to finally SEE what the fuss is about.
Great show.
