nope. it was OMS becaiuse half of his touring band was touring with SN (Brett) and Chicago (Wally). he had practically the whole start of new FM album recorded with Mick and John at the time and they were waiting for Stevie, remember? she said nope, and added a year to her solo tour. guess she should have been fired right then and there?

One Man Show. It was Lindsey’s solo acoustic/karaoke tour.

the tour Lindsey did in 2012, because SN ditched the mac. he did it completely alone, he was travelling with just the guitar tech and the sound guy, for a while. it was so successful that he added 4 separate legs.

it was a pretty fantastic tour. lots of sold out expensive but miniature venues. the only real complaint was that the setlist was too short. then again, comparing to this year's spectacular setlist he has, OMS one cannot hold a candle!

Steve thinks everyone's OMS tour has to be a carbon copy of Richard Thompson. i saw Richard Thompson. great voice and great sense of humor. by the end of his show i was bored. to each his / her own.

on his OMS, Lindsey did 4 songs with backup samples (ISA and Come, for example). it was way less backup samples than his current tour. and it was in your face - he would start the sample and then start playing. he was not hiding it. his ISA from that tour was my favorite version from this decade. till he played ISA for my daughter at a show last week.

that all said i absolutely hated how short Lindsey's OMS setlist was.

Of course thatís what theyíre intended for. Thatís what any festival is for. As for this tour, itís no more a cash grab than if there hadnít been a lineup change. Arguably, itís less of a cash grab, since new lineups are risky.

Obviously. It was Irvingís attempt to put his roster on the same footing. Futile attempt, regardless.

Quote:
Lindsey and Chris towed the company line by playing them in the first place, they were in the middle of promoting their album; can you not understand Lindsey's viewpoint.
I never didnít understand his viewpoint. Iíve never said I disagree with what he said (and I donít). But, itís bad politics to have gone there.

Isn't every tour a cash grab? Bands tour because they love to perform and they make a lot of money doing something they love.

There were a lot of people at the FM show I attended who appeared to be much more than "casual fans." I understand what the implication is when people use the term "casual fan" when discussing the current lineup... that the "real fans" aren't going to the tour. Hey, if that makes people feel better to think that, go for it.

Bad politics? what do we expect from our favourite bands, truthful accounts of their art and career, or politically correct statements as to not upset anyone? Truthfully I don't want another FM tour, I do want a recorded final show with the 5. At least Lindsey is not hamstrung by the PR machine that is attached to Irving and FM moving forward.

Not if he burns it down, first.

Or if they ghost him in the fog again. Sorry to hear you were sick in Canton. I would have gone to that show if it wasn't so close to the holiday. Wanted to meet you and bwboy.

Accounts about each other? The former.

Accounts about one of the most powerful men in the industry, your manager, and someone whoís probably in for tens of millions or more and is putting seven figures in your pocket? Most certainly the latter!

There were dessert shows?

I know that Stevie and FM have done tours at wineries in Australia, but a dessert show is definitely something I could sign up for!

(PS Particularly if you're allowed to throw pies at any of the band members you can't stand...)

Entire Bella Donna album with Blue Lamp, Gold & Braid, and Sleeping Angel included and filmed for Blu-Ray release is the absolute dream.

That would have been nice, jbrownsjr. I'm sorry Hawkeye wasn't able to make it, either. It was very cold that day, and the snow flurries didn't help, but it was a great show! I will definitely see Lindsey next year, and I'm holding him to his promise to play Countdown!
