    Hello all, long time lurker first time poster, 10-year MP fan.

    I’m finally popping my motorpsycho cherry in Stavanger on 13/4, I can’t begin to tell you how excited I am. The Crucible has blown my mind, such an amazing album. Lux Eterna gets me emotional...like I sobbed uncontrollably on my third or fourth listen when the “big chorus” comes in. It’s definitely up there with their best work. But that’s just my opinion, man.

    So, I didn’t want to make this a long post, but I’m a Brit based in the US and somewhat frustrated that MP never play over here. But also that’s kind of understandable as I feel like I might be the only fan here. But this time home to see my family over Easter, I was determined to see my rock n roll idols live and booked a whistle-stop trip to Stavanger. Anyway, I just came here to say I can’t bloody wait. Because nobody else I know seems to understand the magnitude of this situation 😬

    Sail the eff on Paychonauts!

    Hello @TrustMe, that's fantastisk, buddy! You're sure to have a blast at the concert! And a warning: you'll get addicted to seeing them live immediately. Like you, I went to my first concert (10-2017) after having been a collector and fan since longtime (early nineties), and I remember clearly afterwards shouting out in the parkinglot what a fool I am for not having attended their concerts earlier on!Their albums are great, but live performances are the bigger ballgame!
    Hope to hear from you a lot on the forum,

    @TrustMe - Very happy for you. Fellow Brit here who only got the bug in last couple years. But heed JERO's words - the live experience is something else - I've been spending shed loads to get to shows in Europe since my first gig in Oct 17. But be sure to bring earplugs just in case - they do play effing loud.

    Welcome on board, TrustMe.
    We might meet in Stavanger, then
    Folken is a classic venue for an MP show, good choice!

    I envy everyone who's about to see MP for the first time. Though it wasn't so spectacular for me. Bizarre '95, super small venue, 4 bands on the bill, didn't know who'd play when and when MP did, I wasn't even sure if it was them due to them playing quite a few songs unbeknownst to me, and me standing in the back with no clear view of any bandmember's face, which I wasn't too familiar with to begin with anyway.

    But to experience their live prowess nowadays for a first time while expecting a maybe decent or even great show but eventually being blasted to Cygnus X-1 and back, woah! Envy alert!!!

    So have fun!

    Thanks guys! Your responses have only made me more excited! Just from reading this forum (and, uh, drunkenly splurging on all the Roadwork vinyls last year) I know I'm in for a hell of a ride.
    @mefisto - I'm glad I made a good choice! It was pretty much the only show that fit into my travel schedule...maybe bump into you there!
    @supernaut - you envy me?!?! Obviously the band has come a long way since those heady days but I wouldn't mind being able to witness the evolution of a rock juggernaut since the mid-90s! The grass is always greener on the other side I guess
