Post from the EM forum:

"About yesterday's concert in Budapest: it was wonderful, apart from some minor faults of the sound engineer (During the performance of "On Eart As It Is In Heaven", the choir absolutely overpowered the orchestra, it was impossible to hear what the orchestra played and even the choir sounded a bit like "mixed together". During some other performances, some instruments were also way too loud compared to others.)

The program was the same as in the previous concerts in this tour. The encores were: Chi Mai, The Ecstasy of Gold and On Earth As It Is In Heaven. There was no intermission, the Maestro conducted the two hour concert without a break.

As for the Maestro: he seemed very fragile now. At the beginning of the concert they announced that Morricone had an aching leg so he would conduct the orchestra not as he used to do, standing in front them, but sitting in front of them on a high chair and he would like to apologize for this. (No wonder: this week he has had four concerts! It's crazy, in his age, I think. He should have some rest, more free days between the concerts.) At the end of the concert he needed some assistance to stand up from the chair. I do hope he manages to get better and conduct all the planned concerts.

I am very grateful that I could see the Maestro again and I wish him good health during this long concert series."

Post by: Milan NS on February 23, 2014, 07:09:18 AM
Will do. Four more weeks until your concert, so let's hope he completely recuperates.  O0

This might explain the injury - from the FSM Board:

"Ennio Morricone said in a recent interview to a Swiss newspaper (to promote his concert he held in Zurich - where he apparently fell from the podium at the end of the event) that he'd love to score more science fiction movies..."

http://www.filmscoremonthly.com/board/posts.cfm?threadID=101936&forumID=1&archive=0

The next concert after Zurich was Budapest where he was seated, ditto for Vienna...


Title: Re: 2014 concerts
Post by: dave jenkins on February 23, 2014, 08:11:07 AM
So it sounds like he can continue the tour if he sits. No biggie from my point of view.

The idea that a conductor can injure himself by falling off a podium in the 21st Century strikes me as ludicrous. Podiums should raise and lower at will. Why are we still using 19th Century technology?

Yes Dave, and from this Budapest video that I've posted earlier in the thread where he conducted sitting in a high chair, you can see that everything went normal as usual:

Can we find another word to use instead of "high chair" when talking about Morricone? A "high chair" is the chair with the tray you put little kids into to at meal time. Can we instead use "tall chair" when talkin about Morricone? ;-)

Are youtube videos speeded up to beat any copyright removal?

I'm sorry, I think we've missed EM at his peak were live performances of EoG are concerned.  :'(

Why does EM signature tune have to sound so rushed.  It puts the singer under unnecessary pressure to keep up and makes the whole thing sound a bit chaotic.

This performance has a better tempo http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1-rHdSWZLpQ (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1-rHdSWZLpQ)    O0

I wish they would have a makeup date for the New York show. But at the very least, it is good to see that they are giving makeup dates for other shows, which gives me hope that he'll be well enough to perform, and maybe he will eventually schedule a new New York show

"Starting from February 2015, Ennio Morricone will be back on stage to perform in the concerts that had been suspended in 2014 on medical grounds.
In this way, by September 2015, most of the concerts that had been cancelled, will actually take place.
To comply with this schedule, Morricone will conduct 22 concerts in 2 months, an extraordinary effort in his long career: in fact, this is the very first time in his artistic history that he will conduct such a staggering number of concerts in such a short period of time.
But, this is an “exploit” that he will accomplish with joy, passion and peace of mind because he is willing to please his audience.
In the meantime, we are already focusing on the planning the if 2015-2016 concert season, which will start from October 1st 2015.
As of today, Morricone has not yet chosen the manager/agent who will take care of the next concert season and he hereby firmly belies the groundless rumors regarding an exclusive contract with any Agent/Producer.
Ennio Morricone is willing to examine any proposals regarding concerts to be held starting from October 1st, 2015.

Anyway, found an excellent seat for 50 euros - similar to the one you had in Paris last year, mon ami... it's been 6 years since I last saw Morricone, looking forward to this (also, back then he didn't have Dulce Pontes with him, so I'm happy she's with him this time).

When I saw him in 2002 in Paris he came close to fall from the stage during the call-back. He grab the banister at the very last moment!

Anyway, found an excellent seat for 50 euros - similar to the one you had in Paris last year, mon ami...

Good for you! That's like 5 or 6 times less expensive than what I paid (I don't remember). Lucky you! Anyway, for this kind of concerts, the seat makes all the difference: when in the back of the room you're experiencing something that is much closer to the disk in your living room than a live performance. When you can see the hands of the guys, that's the real thing!

it's been 6 years since I last saw Morricone, looking forward to this (also, back then he didn't have Dulce Pontes with him, so I'm happy she's with him this time).

- according to your superb review at the time, it was 150 euros - pricey indeed! You can always count on eastern european countries for cheap prices; back in Belgrade '09 I paid 50 euros for the most expensive seat category; here are the Zagreb prices now:

2014 was the year I got specialized in genitals:

- the  TV commercial about genital herpes you're mentioning
- an Internet ad for a brand called "Ma P'tite Culotte" (i.e. "My Panties")
- a video about rape
- a short movie that starts and almost finish by "lay your hand on my penis"
- a viral video about a date featuring the most explicit lines I have ever directed, including the famous "turkish slap"

Not exactly what I had in mind the day I told my parents I wanted to make movies  ::)

The London O2 Arena concert last 5th february was fantastic. Around 4000 enthusiasts, among them many of my country fellows Italians. Same programme as the one posted above from Amsterdam was followed, and it was very emotional for me. Legend of 900, Once upon a time in America, Once Upon a Time in the West, Gabriel's Oboe...

The sensation is that at 86 years old this might be among the last concerts Ennio will conduct (I still wish him 500 more!)...he is leaving us his inheritance, never to forget.

It was a privilege to be there

Very thank you. I liked especially this bit in the last paragraph:
Quote
The undisputed highlight of the evening is The Ecstasy of Gold, from The Good, the Bad and the Ugly, which approaches like a distant stampede before its galloping rhythms soar up into a full-on choral and orchestral bombardment. Over it all, soprano Susanna Rigacci’s voice vaults through the octaves like a human theremin, and the crowd are blasted back into their seats by the sheer spine-tingling power of it. It’s such an awe-inspiring experience, the audience don’t let him go home until they’ve had it again.
The performance at Amsterdam, linked to above, bears this out. I especially liked what I heard of the DYS music (and it's a huge chunk!) that immediately precedes Ecstasy. That means he moves from my second favorite piece to my favorite--great programming. I wish I could see this live.

I don't care if he doesn't change his song list at all, I'm happy for everything he gives us.
I'm so happy I saw him in person.

Back.

It was a great evening - I had a terrific spot, 10 meters from Ennio, looking at his right profile. He was seated the whole time during the regular set, and was standing during the three encores.
Even while seated, it was interesting watching him every now and then leaping from his chair, as some crescendo would approach.
"Abolisson" rocked the Arena, although the brief solo was completely off-key - be interesting to see it again on Youtube - God knows what Ennio thought of it... "what a mistake-a to make-a!", most probably!

The Arena wasn't sold out, reports say there were 4000 people, but the crowd was great, standing ovations an' all.

There was no programme booklet, but the setlist was the usual one anyway:

http://www.setlist.fm/setlist/ennio-morricone/2015/arena-zagreb-croatia-33c89409.html

Very similar to the concert I saw in 2009, this time with Chi mai, Cinema Paradiso & Malena substituting Per le antiche scale, L'eredità Ferramonti & The Desert of the Tartars, so that was a nice change.

Morricone playing chess in his dressing room two hours before the concert:

Like I said, you'll like it on stage. As a real Metallica fan, you know that comparing live and studio version of songs isn't really fair: as long as you're not witnessing the live performance, well, "live", you're missing half the experience.

Ennio did a concert two nights ago in the Arena Verona. He spoke to the audience before the concert.

Apparently, he fell the night between 2 and 3 August and broke his femur. His doctor told him it was not possible to do the concert. But he had to be there for the orchestra and chorus... so he conducted the whole concert in a wheelchair.

Online articles mention there was a nice surprise - a world premiere of "Il Forte" from the GBU, in the Leone segment of the concert.

Title: Re: Concerts
Post by: Milan NS on September 16, 2015, 04:27:55 PM
I'd love to see Morricone two days in a row. If I was you, I'd probably go for the cheapest ticket (95€) for both nights, instead of paying the same price for one night's good seat. We both saw him from close distance in the past anyway. But it looks that you have your eye on a single night. Maybe skip the girlfriend? Just kidding! (is she a fan btw?)

And what's up with those prices? Is it a Paris thing? The most expensive ticket for Frankfurt (no eastern Europe for sure) was 100 euros.

In Budapest the cheapest ticket is 32 euros. I found a nice spot in the next price category, 47 euros.

Title: Re: Concerts
Post by: drinkanddestroy on September 16, 2015, 05:26:36 PM
I paid $200 per seat for the show in Brooklyn last year (later canceled due to Morricone's injury). This was at a time when I was not doing anything like full-time work or making full-time money. I still would have been happy to pay the $200 for a good seat.

Of course, if I'd seen him already, maybe things would be different. But for me, seeing Morricone should be a wonderful evening that at most only happens several times in a person's life. I would certainly pay whatever it took to got in. Preferably a good seat. Then I'd bring a good vid camera and take vids and post them to YouTube so I can make everyone jealous (and so my Leone friends can enjoy 'em :) )

Have fun!


Title: Re: Concerts

Hey drinkanddestroy, 'sup buddy! My guess is that the one good chance now for you to see him in the US would be if his Tarantino score gets the Oscar nomination. He came to the US in 2001 when his "Malena" score was running for Oscar - gave a lecture but no concert, and then he came back in 2007 for the Life Achievement Oscar and used the opportunity to give two concerts. Let's hope the same happens in 2016 then.

She's not a hardcore fan but she loves his music. I almost skipped her last time: I paid for my ticket and she paid for her ticket and her brother's ticket (birthday present). She couldn't afford 2 good tickets so I spent the evening alone in the front rows whiel they were in the back of the room. I cannot pull up that stunt twice :)

And what's up with those prices? Is it a Paris thing? The most expensive ticket for Frankfurt (no eastern Europe for sure) was 100 euros.

No idea what they're thinking! It's very uncommon here. Every time I speak about it in Paris people are horrified by the price... but the concert are always fully booked within a few days so I guess they could make us pay 500 bucks and still sell everything.

I have not the slightest interest to attend such a concert. I have not much interest to hear film music outside the films. And I would never pay more than 50 bucks for a concert. Artists who can ask for such an amount of money are normally musically dead anyway.

I was trying to hint that n_l should bring a camera to the concert and post vids for us ;)

When Morricone was scheduled in Brooklyn, DJ and I paid $200 each. Then DJ had to cancel, so I offered the other ticket to a girl I was messing around with (I don't do relationships) who lived near the Barclays Center. She has seen Leone films and likes them but not an insane fan like us, who would spend $200 on a Morricone concert. So the evening would have cost me $400. She offered to pay for her ticket but I didn't let her, cuz she wasn't a huge fan and was only going cuz of me.
Anyway, the show was canceled, so I got my $400 refunded. Instead, I spent the evening at her place, fucking her for free. But I'd have preferred to pay $400 to spend a couple of hours with Morricone first.
Needless to say, the girl has since gotten rid of me. Needless to say, I have still never seen Morricone.
But I still have the ticket (and gave the other to DJ). A souvenir from an event that never happened. Story of my life ;)

Unbelievable what sort of energy this guy has at 86. (I'm speaking of Morricone, not Jenkins).

You know dj, looks like Morricone will never come to America ... It's not out of the realm of possibility that I'd consider going to Europe for a concert. Between concert tix, plane and hotel, we're probably talking about $1,500 per person. A helluva lotta money for a concert. But if it can be part of a vacation .... And maybe a once-in-a-lifetime chance to see the Maestro .... Maybe maybe I should think about it. Maybe I can get a week off in July or somethin. Waddaya say?

3.30 AM over here, just got back from Budapest - my third and absolute best Morricone concert. I'll scan the programme tomorrow. I will just say this... he did the... MAN WITH THE HARMONICA. Yup. My jaw dropped to the floor when I've spotted it in the programme (more a book than a programme), it started the Leone segment, Il Forte from GBU followed, and then the usual Leone stuff. More tomorrow... in the meantime, I see someone uploaded it from the previous concert in Prague (where it made its live debut), too bad about the lousy audio (the fender guitar ROCKED in the Budapest Arena): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fe5ovROt27Q

So where do I begin... I'm just gonna type this ad hoc... after a 4 hour car ride from Novi Sad, the three of us arrived in a very cold Budapest. I got my ticket back in august; my two friends were more adventurous and arrived ticketless to a sold out concert. So at 7 PM, in I go reluctantly, leaving them with the "We need two tickets" sign. They got in 15 minutes later. So once inside, and it's one more hour until the start, I've decided to check out the merch stand. And what a stand it was! Like for some rock star. I was greeted by couple of cute hungarian girls wearing this:

(https://bandstores-completelyindepe.netdna-ssl.com/prodimages/FB_ENNI_0011.jpg)

I immediately went for the LP-sized 50-page programme:

(https://bandstores-completelyindepe.netdna-ssl.com/prodimages/FB_ENNI_0017.jpg)

... and then I bought this:

(https://bandstores-completelyindepe.netdna-ssl.com/prodimages/Ennio-Morricone-DVD.jpg)

(https://bandstores-completelyindepe.netdna-ssl.com/prodimages/Ennio-Morricone-DVD-bk.jpg)

There was also a brand new book by the Maestro himself:

(https://bandstores-completelyindepe.netdna-ssl.com/prodimages/Ennio-Morricone-life-notes-book.jpg)

... but it was too pricey for 128 pages with large font text and one-page photos. And anyway, if I change my mind, I can always order it through the new section of the EM website: http://enniomorricone.firebrandstores.com/index.php

So anyhow, I've taken my seat some 20 meters from the stage, great view. Chatting with a nice hungarian couple, it was a third EM concert for them as well. Apparently, they were clueless about any merchandise being sold, so I've sent them in the right direction and they bought the programme.

The 'setlist' above is accurate; Ennio stepped to the podium at 8:20 PM, there was a 20 minutes intermission, and the concert ended at 10:50 PM. The first part ended as usual with the Leone segment. The second set started with the "Hateful eight", and when that badass intro started... oh man. When "Bestiality" kicked in, all I could think about was [spoiler!] the puking scene from the film. I loved the whole programme (bit disappointed that the "Sicilian Clan" was dropped from the "Scattered Sheets" section of the concert); so "The mission" finale is here, and I'm thinking the only piece that is missing (to me) is the crowd favourite "Abolisson", but then again I've heard it on two previous occasions, so no big deal right? Anyhow, Ennio comes out for the first encore, he looks at the pianist who takes the position at the organ... I go "Can it be... ?" ... and then the Abolisson's powerful intro kicks in. BAM! That's it. It blew the roof off the Arena.

As I exit along with 12,000 other folks, I find my two buddies with no problem; I think for 10 minutes we were enthusiastically talking over each other. Got in the car and off to Serbia, got in Novi Sad under 3 hours, must've been a record, but there was virtually no one else apart from us on the border.

ENNIO MORRICONE CANCELS MOSCOW AND HELSINKI CONCERTS

Ennio Morricone announces with great disappointment that he cannot conduct the concerts scheduled at Crocus City Hall in Moscow on March 21st 2016 and at the Hartwall Arena on March 23rd 2016. He currently suffers strong pains in his lower back and his doctors have advised him to take a period of eight weeks of complete rest.

The concerts scheduled later this year are not affected by this advise.

Maestro Morricone says: “I am sorry to let down my esteemed audiences in Helsinki and Moscow. If only there was the slightest chance of me going, I would have not considered canceling these concerts, but it appears that this is the only solution. I do hope that I will be able to visit Moscow and Helsinki at a later moment in time, as I was very much looking forward to going there.

I would also like to stress on the fact that I will still be conduction my concerts in Paris, Oxford and Gent as planned in May and June 2016”

At this moment the promoter and the artist are investigating the possibility to reschedule the Helsinki concert to a date in November 2016, in the event that a date is agreed upon, the tickets for the March 23rd concert will remain valid for the new concert date. The promoter and the artist are hopeful to announce a new date before original concert date March 23rd.

Title: Re: Concerts

We're halfway.
The program actually differs from what is written. The hommage to Tornatore featured 2 pieces from Cinema Paradisio (hopefully) and the Leone part had no Man With The Harmonica (!!! That one was a big reason for me to buy the ticket).


Title: Re: Concerts
Post by: Milan NS on September 24, 2016, 03:10:23 PM
Sorry to hear about  "Man with the harmonica" missing from the programme - if it's any consolation, same thing happened during concerts in june in England and Belgium, a quote from a review of the UK concert:

"Slight tweak to the programme, with the Leone suite reduced to the familiar four pieces (which was a shame)."

I bet the Hateful Eight kicked ass, though.

Yes it's what happened. He removed The Man With The Harmonica and the GBU piece to make room for the 2 Cinema Paradisio ones.


I bet the Hateful Eight kicked ass, though.

It really did.

The big difference between this programme and the one from the previous tour is that this one is more focused on chords. The previous ones had something more "military-like" with songs like Here's To You and Il deserto dei Tartari.

Why didn't the Cinema Paradiso ones just replace the 3 original Tornatore ones in the program (The Best Offer, The Legend of 1900, Baaria)?

Actually, I'm not sure the opening music was The Best Offer. I'm not familiar with that score but I haven't recognized the song (I checked the whole album yesterday).
Also, although I'm usually not very fond of The Legend of 1900's soundtrack, it kicked ass.

Hey, a 'tallica fan, sweet! Saw them in 2004 (St Anger tour) and 2012 (Black album anniversary tour); both nice gigs, and I'll never forget the mighty "Harvester of sorrow" during the first gig... these concerts were a huge thing in my small country (Serbia). After the horrible 90ies under Milosevic when western bands avoided us like the plague, Metallica really opened the door with that first concert in 2004. Since then I saw the Stones, AC/DC, Clapton, Dylan, Cohen, ZZ Top, Motorhead, Roger Waters, Robert Plant, etc, etc. That was unthinkable during 1991-2000.

Of course I am a Metallica fan. Where do you think "drink and destroy" comes from? Searching ........  >:D

I saw them on St. Anger tour in 2004 on Long Island. Death Magnetic tour in 2009 in Long Island, and Madison Square Garden in New York in 2010. Now, it's back to Long Island. General Admission for all 4 shows  >:D

 I have been checking out their setlists for the recently completed tour of Europe and South America, and it looks like they are playing five songs from the new album. I bought it but haven't listened to it yet. Have you listened to it? Is it any good?

Other than two songs from Death Magnetic (Unforgiven 3 and The Day That Never Comes), they have not made a good new song in more than 15 years.

Metallica played Metlife Stadium in New Jersey last night. Here is full video of the show, with The Ecstasy of Gold, of course, at beginning https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NaRwmsVQm5w

If you're just interested in The Ecstasy of Gold, here is a better video from last night with just EoG and their first song https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=06BUJ0sLLvg

My show is Wednesday at Nassau Coliseum  >:D

Awesome  >:D >:D >:D

I was in GA, 5-10 rows deep, right near one of the mics. For the two songs that use acoustic and electric, James had the two guitars set up at the mic stand right in front of me: Fade to Black and Unforgiven. I got a great vid on my phone of Fade to Black.

Killer setlist, eh?  :) We got Blackened and Harvester. How about SANITARIUM! And two songs from Kill 'Em All: Four Horsemen and Seek & Destroy (now all SLWB people know where my board name comes from. (I used to have the same name on the old Metallica boards - haven't been there in years).

And Rob played a killer Anesthesia - how awesome is that??!!

here is The Ecstasy of Gold and the first song of of the show. In this video, during EoG in this video, you see Metallica as they are about to enter the arena. (as James says, this is the only arena show of what is otherwise a stadium tour https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QnR6qE_5LDw

and here is a video from inside the arena of EoG plus the first Metallica song (Hardwired ... to Self Destruct) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G02t1o-cE_8

here is the final song https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p1cPgIToctM

you know they now have a page for every concert they ever did https://metallica.com/tour/past

for every show since 2004, you can purchase the audio recording. And plenty of these shows have pics and videos. It's an awesome, awesome site. Remember the concerts forever  >:D >:D >:D >:D >:D >:D >:D >:D >:D >:D >:D

I'll probably my recordings of all the concerts I've been at (April 20, 2004; January 29, 2009; November 15, 2009; May 17, 2017) but for the other concerts, there are still tons of videos that I enjoy watching. And plenty more on YouTube  O0

is it annoying any non-Metallica fans here that we're discussing Metallica concerts in this Morricone concert thread? I thought this place could use a little bit of RUMBLING  >:D but seriously, if y'all prefer I can split this discussion off into a separate Metallica topic


Title: Re: Concerts
Post by: Milan NS on May 22, 2017, 08:11:02 AM
Personally, I don't care, the board is very slow anyway. Yes, I have those  pro audio recordings from the concerts I saw (15 june 2004, 8 may 2012), as well as Met on Tour videos.

Going back to the topic (hey, just now noticed it was me who started it), looks like I'll be going to Budapest in october to see Ennio for the 4th time... I'll tell him you said "hi".

I had so much fun at the Metallica concert last week that I decided to go see them again. I am going to see them on July 5 in Orlando, Florida, at Camping World Stadium, better known as the Citrus Bowl. I have been to four Metallica concerts in arenas (Nassau Coliseum in Long Island in 2004, 2009, and 2017; Madison Square Garden in New York City in 2009), but this will be my first stadium concert - for Metallica or any other band  :) >:D

So I'll say hi to Metallica for you, and you say hi to Morricone for me  ;)

Metallica will be touring Europe during parts of next fall, winter, and spring https://www.metallica.com/tour No Serbia dates are scheduled as of now, but you can see them in Budapest on April 5. (Regular tickets are sold out, but I am sure you can get on the secondary market.) They also may add more dates; maybe they'll come to Serbia  >:D >:D >:D

How did it compare with the NY show?

Stadium is a different feel from an arena, of course.

The setlist was better in NY. But there is no such thing as a bad setlist at a Metallica show.

Volbeat, a good Danish band, opened both shows.

I was right near the stage, again. I will post vids to YouTube and share the links here when I get back to NY.

Went to Madeira Beach today, on the Gulf Coast; at a baseball game in Tampa Bay (actually, St. Petersburg) now.

We had great weather - not a drop of rain for two days!  :)

Note a drop of rain here in Arizona either, for last 3 months.  Only 116F today though.

Here are a couple of great videos I got at the Metallica concert:

Master of Puppets:
https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=Yq1b_K39ZA4&feature=youtu.be

Seek and Destroy:
https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=ch8bKE5SUuk

For you Morricone/non-Metallica fans, are a few good videos I found on YouTube of the Ecstasy of Gold intro at this concert:
https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=coJUNzcZ8L4

https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=PLt8OiPxMzM



By the way .... If any of you have never really listened to Metallica, because you assume it's just crazy heavy shit and can't be enjoyable to non-heavy-metal fans, just know that they have plenty of great melodic songs, ballads, and other music that is very appealing to fans of more mainstream music. If you're interested, lemme know and I can provide links to a few songs (e.g., "Nothing Else Matters," "Enter Sandman") that fans of lighter music can enjoy. (Some of their hardcore fans accuse them if selling out and becoming more mainstream after their first few albums of very heavy music ...)

Here is another video I took - bassist Robert Trujillo playing "Anasthesia," a mind-blowing bass solo by the late Cliff Burton (Metallica's first bassist, who died in a tragic auto accident in 1986 at the age of 24), whose image appears on the screen in the background. It starts at 0:44 of this vid https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=OeCx7uLwHG8&feature=youtu.be

I just posted to YouTube two more videos I took from my Metallica show in Orlando.

Wednesday, August 16 will be Metallica's final show of the North American leg of the tour. The show is in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.
Then they'll be in Europe from September 2017 through May 2018.

The Edmonton show will be streamed live at http://webcast.livemetallica.com/ and https://www.youtube.com/user/MetallicaTV

Livestream begins at 10:45 p.m. Eastern time. I presume that the livestream opens with the cover band(s). Metallica generally walks on the stage at precisely 9:00 p.m. local time (midnight Eastern time). So, if you are a Leone fan and don't care about Metallica and just want to see 50,000 people singing along to the Ecstasy of Gold, be sure to turn it on at exactly 12:00 a.m. Eastern time. I guess that's 6:00 a.m. Thursday in Paris  ;)

Thanks for the tip. That is 6 AM over here as well, too hardcore even for me.

Be great if they would play even few riffs from some Elvis song, seeing today is the 40th anniversary of the King's passing.
