So I was wondering if anyone has seen an album specific gig that all tommorows parties put on? Like when the Stooges played "raw power" in its entirety recently or Spiritualized with "ladies and gentlemen...".

The reason is I brought tickets today to see the Flaming Lips play the soft bulletin and it's my first time seeing them, it's a great album but I was wondering if it was usual for these gigs for the band to do a greatest hits encore or something? I'd love to see them play some of their other songs live and the soft bulletin is under an hour long.

I can imagine them maybe playing a couple other crowd favourites as an encore, the few bands I know that play album-gigs usually follow up with their other songs.
has a terrible signature.

Biffy Clyro used to do it on the release night of their albums. They didn't play any other material AFAIK

I saw Waters do The Darkside of the Moon and he played that, Wish you were here in full, and about another hour or more of random songs. So ya, if the album's under an hour Im sure they'll do something else too.

Iron Maiden played the whole A Matter of Life and Death album on that tour.
They pulled it off though...

maybe it's because of your description, or the fact that it's 1:30am here, or both, i can't stop giggling.

hmm, seems like I have a good chance then. Dinosaur Jr are also playing bug in its entirety but I've seen them play all their hits before so it's quite a nice change

MCR played all of 'The Black Parade' during their world tour. Then 8 songs from previous albums.


I used to be a HUGE MCR fan.

^fucking rad show... I'm seeing him do The Wall in October. I can't wait.

I also just saw Rush and for their second set they played Moving Pictures front to back which was not as awesome as Dark Side, but still quite amazing in itself.

Between the Buried and Me did Colours, then a couple of hits.

SO JEALOUS

OT: I saw the Decemberists play The Hazards Of Love completely, then they came back out and played other stuff. The F'Lips should do the same.

You're in for an awesome show

At Crue Fest 1, Motley Crue played Dr. Feelgood from start to finish to celebrate its 20th anniversary.

I think it's a great Idea for bands to do this.

With the invention and subsequent popularization of digital media, kids typically aren't buying (or acquiring...cough) full albums anymore. There are exceptions of course, but for the most part the consumer mindset has moved back towards singles as apposed to albums.

As for me, I prefer to listen to entire albums,which is why it is cool that these types of performances are becoming popular.

Lou Reed performed his 1973' album "Berlin" in it's entirety a few years ago.

I've heard that when the lips were playing all of DSOTM live, they'd do normal length sets, and close with it.

I saw Metallica in Dublin on the 20th anniversary of Master Of Puppets. They played the album in its entirety and then did an entire gig worth of other material including Whiskey In The Jar. Greatest...gig...ever.

I also hear that Devin Townsend is planning on turning Ziltoid The Omniscient into a musical. Id pay to see that.
DOWN WITH THIS SORT OF THING

When I saw them they did the same thing, but only songs from their 2nd album, nothing from the 1st (my favorite )

Just saw Rush on the Time Machine Tour playing Moving Pictures- AWESOME!
Also saw Porcupine Tree last year play the Incident.

Two of my favorite shows I've been to.

When I saw MGMT the first time they announced that they would be playing all of Oracular Spectacular before they began. During the encore they played songs that were unreleased at the time (Congratulations, It's Working, Song For Dan Treacy) and Destrokk. So I'm pretty sure The Flaming Lips will play other stuff as well. Is the show you are going to see with Ariel Pink's Haunted Graffiti?

When I saw G N' R in January, the played all of Appetite and all of Chinese Democracy.

Was an excellent show, despite a lack of Slash.
