There's a big chance if the last date will be played in Greece I will go and take my cam ;)

On the other hand if anyone wants to see Bob Dylan in Europe in the coming fall, tell!

Thanks for the info Jay! Busy schedule for this summer but - as the dates are can't be better - I think I might have to attend Prague then.

For anyone who's looking for sharing a night out in the UK with a relatively new singer-songwriter - check out Belfast born 'Foy Vance' on his upcoming tour

http://www.foyvance.com/

Although he doesn't have the matured voice - there is def. similarity/influences abound to early 70's period WAITS ;)

Checkout 'Gabriel & the Vagabond' > http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=7EsHGpIH58k

Post by: mrstrongarm on June 08, 2008, 11:31:52 AM
i'll check it out - i saw Yael Naim the other day (she featured on a itunes add some months back, singing her 'New Soul' song)... i must admit she was phenominal on stage... easily one of the best gigs i've seen in a while.


Title: Re: Tours - Who is on Tour?
Post by: Buda on June 13, 2008, 10:24:12 AM
Naim is really something to talk about. I saw clips of her live capability over at youtube and have to say I gotta find one of her gigs later when she will be touring around Austria and the likes...

Oh, and here is my gig or what was... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6WtmeOfCigo


Title: Re: Tours - Who is on Tour?
Post by: mrstrongarm on June 13, 2008, 08:26:05 PM
i know someone who taped her in london (see d a d... or msg me) i hope you get an opportunity to see her ...

dare i say she has the same energy (and even the same voice-leading) as Mr Buckley? :)


Title: Re: Tours - Who is on Tour?
Post by: belikewhat on June 13, 2008, 10:52:20 PM
comparing buckley to Yael Naim is abit wrong. i dunno i just hate that bloody new soul song! LOOL!


Title: Re: Tours - Who is on Tour?
Post by: Buda on June 13, 2008, 11:13:59 PM
She has something if not Jeffy kinda magic but something which is similar to what Jeff had in some his performances. When Naim is in her live moment it can come through but listening those "official" productions, clips with their studio sound gives nothing to indicate more about herself. Well, for me.

How was the Dylan clip? Noone is a fan of big D? How come?? :)


Title: Re: Tours - Who is on Tour?
Post by: mrstrongarm on June 14, 2008, 07:33:11 PM
her album (which is still good) did her absolutely no justice to her in live performance...

(and  besides - to judge someone by one song that Apple played to death in an ipod advert is pretty shallow :)

as for the dylan clip - he's an old man, but all respect to an old master... dylan is dylan :)

kinda why i'm not sure if i wanna go to the Leonard Cohen gig... surely he's a shadow of his former glory? but then he's unlikely to tour ever again... *sigh*


Title: Re: Tours - Who is on Tour?
Post by: belikewhat on June 14, 2008, 08:21:29 PM
hehe, seemed to have caused a stir LOL

i personally dont like that song, just forumlates into like a childs rhyme in my brain. but thats just one guys little opinion! listened to some clips tho, she's got some talent so i have no objections being on music scene (hahaha) unlike most 'nme' bands. altho im sure her singing in three languages will cause some over-the-top excitment.

one vocalist i did like (before she was plastered everywhere) was Duffy. shes more edgier/husky for me. lol

yeh dylan clippy was cool btw Buda


Title: Re: Tours - Who is on Tour?
Post by: mrstrongarm on June 15, 2008, 12:00:33 AM
yeah, what i've heard of Duffy i've liked... must make a point of checking out more....


Title: Re: Tours - Who is on Tour?
Post by: Buda on June 15, 2008, 12:23:49 AM
Alright ya guys, then everything is set if Dylan is still cool for yous. I mean alright. ;)

And let's put it this way, Naim needs some time for us and herself to prove or turn out herself to what she seems or IS capable for doing if you know what I mean ;)
