    Just ordered my ticket for Botanique 29/10

    Unfortunate I can't go to the Casino event few days early..else I would have done the double.

    (Had a listen again to Golden Core which they played 'back in 2009...an amazing 16mins jam session) Botanique is always a magic place for Motorpsycho.

    Woohoooo..I've missed looking at that. Hannover on 11/11/17...bet you who's been there?
    Tusen takk for the MP's for an almost Bielefeld Forum experience. But as BI, it's all up
    with no barriers in front. I really like it like that. Starting HH and endingin H.
    Hannover is a great choice and worth playing there, maybe the same enthusiastic crowd as in
    48 BI...meeting friends, staying close to the venue...what more do I need?
    A STARHAMSTER?

    @Vortex155 - I started hesitating now... Bought my ticket for Casino like 4 months ago and reading "Botanique is always a magic place for Motorpsych", it makes me want to buy another one for the Botanique show. Should I...?

    Saw them there some 20 years ago. The room is wide instead of deep, so that many people can stand close to the stage. And it's a beautiful venue.

    Amazing that the band still tries out new territories (not only music wise).

    @ ThorEgil: Motorpsycho played in Alta (three times) and several times in Tromsø but never in Svalbard or north of Alta or Tromsø. I wonder how many people will see Motorpsycho in Longyearbyen because there are only app. 2000 residents.

    @ boomer: Yes, this will be their first ever Show in Croatia.

    Maybe the new guitarist/keyboard player is Tos?

    Longyearbyen cancelled:

    We're sorry sorry sorry that we have to cancel our tour opening gig at Longyearbyen, Svalbard (Spitsbergen) this Thursday.
    The norwegian pilots at SAS are striking, and in order to not get stuck at Svalbard and miss our hometown show on Saturday, we have – in agreement and cooperation with the local promoter – decided to not take the risk, so this show is cancelled. This is obviously a giant bummer for everyone, but we promise to honor this obligation and will come to Svalbard as soon as we can! Scouts honor!

    What a pity for the fans in Spitsbergen (how many fans live there?) but it is a wise decision.

    What about a crowd funding for a private jet?

    6/6 review from Hamar 21/9 (Pay to read):
    Hamar

    I just checked back with the official official site, when Bent asked for song requests to be rehearsed for the tour to come. I guess they must have had a look at what we 'nauts wrote there...well, at least some of the wishes showed up on recent setlists! eager to find out what else they have in store.

    That whole thing reminded me of what Wilco pulled off a while ago, taking the song request concept to a new level. They basically included a tool into the gig section of their website, where one could select preferred songs (from their entire catalogue or at least a really vast selection) for EACH specific date of the tour!

    Now that would be something! What is your take on this if I may ask?

    Maybe they are afraid that they will have to play the Golden Core every night! 😀

    I remember that Bowie (around 1990) pretended to do something similar. Each city got 5 songs to choose, but he just assumed that people will always choose songs he'd play anyway. Where I lived back then, he didn't play the song that was chosen on place 3 of 5.

    I remember that, too, and went see him then. He pretended? As far as I know there was a legit poll and people voted not very suprisingly for his hits, which he played. He got critized for it being a scam but when the people vote for Heroes and Ziggy and Let's Dance, creating a setlist that he would have chosen anyway, what is he to do?

    As for a voted MP set, I guess the same thing would happen. There'll be tons of votes for STG, Plan #1, The Golden Core and the lot and not so many for Painting The Night Unreal, Composite Head, Frances and Neverland which eventually adds up to sets chosen by the band themselves. Surely they're curious what lost gems people would want to hear (Mantrick Muffin Stomp!!!) and will throw them in occasionally. But if they want to come up with a set only with 29th Bulletin, Snafu, Wasted and so on (you get my idea), they better don't listen to the people.

    With regards to the 'let's all shout out songs that must be played or we can not go on living'- game :wink::

    I still think that it's regrettable they didn't ever play Lighthouse Girl with Kenneth.

    Regarding Bowie: Of course the hits got chosen, but in my town some song was voted at No 3 and he didn't play it. So I guess Bowie didn't care much for these polls.
    Was a good gig anyway. I was teenager and the only Bowie fan in my class. I was considering myself way above my mates in musical taste.

    Just curious - was there any talk before or after the shows, veryfying that the guys are still bringing a fourth member on tour? At least there is enough time left for rehearsals before they head southwards ...

    Coincidentally, I bumped into this mystery musician at the airport this morning. Due to circumstances this musician was unable to take part on the first leg of the tour, but is super stoked and looking forward to join in on the European leg.
    I so wish I could go see one of those concerts.

    And yes, they have rehearsed.

    Haha! I said nothing about which airport.
    But the Motorpsychedelic rehearsals usually take place in Trondheim I guess.
