Koko show announced May 25th, same day I have tickets for LCD All Points East. I’m genuinely torn.


#142

Hmm. I wonder will an Irish date be announced pre-Primavera.


#143

Brighton show two days later and it’s a bank holiday. Think that’ll do me nicely. Anyone know what Concorde 2’s like? Not a huge Koko fan as is.


#144

Concorde 2 is fine, haven’t been there in donkeys years, but it was wholly average as a venue. Better sight lines than Koko, at least.

Holding out for Primavera Porto. Looks like they’ve not been caught by APE.


#145

Ah I’m sure it’ll be fine.

Would love for the lads to go ahead and put out some of this music they’re obviously touring behind.


#146

I love Concorde 2 but it’s a bastard to get back to the station from.


#147

New lineup?

New key art?


#148

New lineup??? Please say Moses and Lockett are still in the band!


#149

Genuinely feeling a bit anxious about either Lockett or Moses leaving


#150

The guitar playing smudge looks a bit like Lockett to me…


#151

London, Brighton, Manchester… can’t make the Manchester date so that’s that then :frowning_face:


#152

Brighton is on a Sunday…the day before a bank holiday Monday.


#153

Same. I talked to Moses last year at one of his Moon Diagrams shows and asked him what DH were doing and he mentioned something about shows this summer. He didn’t say he’d left the band.


#154

I’m in Glasgow that weekend (seeing LCD soundsystem), so can’t complain really, just a shame I can’t make any of the dates. You gonna do all 3 UK shows? I think you’re the chap who has seen them like 50 times?


#155

37 times. And I’m a chapess. I’m doing London and Brighton, still deciding on Manc due to Ed fucking Sheeran playing a football stadium that night meaning hotels are £££££.
I’m seeing them at primavera too hopefully and in France just after Prim.


#156

Same. I’m worried it’s going to be just Bradford with a load of new dudes…


#157

Nice one, that is proper commitment. And apologies! :flushed:


#158

No worries! I think most people assume I’m a guy.


#159

Also, DH shows in France are the best. On their 2015 tour, they did a show in Reims where Josh ended up playing guitar on Fluorescent Grey and Bradford played the bass part. The night before in Tourcoing (Lille basically), Bradford started harping on about the brutalist architecture in Lille then got down into the audience to talk to a girl whose friend said she knew all about it.
There was a show in Paris in 2010 where I got to play Bradford’s guitar a bit. It was the last night of the tour and they used to get fans up on stage to play their instruments at the end of the tour.

One of the few bands worth obsessive devotion I reckon.

Is this you?
