  1. Living in Metro Atlanta really does suck!

  2. What is up with these tours avoiding Atlanta? Is Florida really that much of a hotbed for these artists? Or North Carolina? I understand avoiding the South in general if the tour is financially unable, but these tours seem to be making a point of avoiding the ATL.

  3. Men Without Hats is gettin’ it done! I like the two songs I’ve heard so far. Not much deviation from their formula around thirty years ago, and honestly, that’s just fine.
    Good for you, MWH!

  4. Yep. Love the new album! Ivan can keep pumping out new material as far as I’m concerned. He’s a great example of taking some time off, resting up and making an awesome comeback.

  6. RE: ATLANTA SHOWS… No doubt. We’ve been in more than one kind of drought for a few years. I accept that New Order doesn’t even know Atlanta exists, but COME ON!?!?!?

    At least Duran comes once or twice each tour. Their my favorite, but I’d honestly prefer to see someone new at this point.

  7. I don’t understand….FOUR dates in Florida? and nothing in LA or SF? having said that, my friends and I saw them last year at the Sausalito Art Festival and they were really good!

  8. Tears from the midwest. Last year’s Oysterfest was just a tease! Chicago wants more MWH!!!!!

  9. those don’t look like the same people who did the safety dance!

  10. Ditto the comments about Atlanta. What the Hell???!!!!

    It almost makes me mad enough to start my own promotion company.
