Beastie Boys 2009 tour plans


From Copelandentertainment.com

An update of Mix Master Mike's tour schedule reveals some clues about what the Beastie Boys 2009 tour plans will be. Clearly, the month of September has been reserved for the Beastie Boys tour of North America.

Most interesting is the booking on August 29, the day before the Beastie Boys will play the Outside Lands Festival in San Francisco. A betting person would put money on the Beastie Boys playing a club show in San Francisco or Los Angeles on August 29.

What the band will be doing in October is unknown--perhaps more shows in North America. In November, Beastie Boys will travel to Europe. Adam Horovitz confirmed the European tour plans when the Beastie Boys were doing a press tour in England, Germany, and France recently.

Excellent news about the European tour!

I'm going to Outside Lands. A club show in Cali would be a great addition to my plans.

I was hoping for a club show near me. What are the odds of them doing more of them?

The Congress Theater show in Chicago isn't on MMM's schedule, so that tells us the schedule isn't 100% complete or currently updated--so anything is possible.

Any guesses to when the tour dates will be announced? Are they going to wait until the last minute and make us scramble to get off work to see them? It drives me crazy when they pull that shit. I need notice.

The tour announcement is imminent.

I can't get psyched for the new album & tour. I know the Beasties don't tell fans much but they have said zero about the new album. If they want me to shell out $$$ for their music & shows they got to give me somehting to get excited about. The Bonnaroo bootleg & videos show they are playing like crap. Sabotage at Bonaroo is the alltime worst performance of the song. WTF...they never played that song before? They sound like rookies. They couldn't make it through the Nas song either without fucking up. Don't those jokers rehearse? Something tells me their hearts ain't in it anymore. If they aren't in it, I won't be in it either.

Please oh please let the show on 8/29 be in LA!

I don't think Nutterbutter is a true fan. We live for the screw ups. I thought it was funny they busted out a new song a messed up.

RE their recent performances: They probably did not rehearse as much as they should have. Based on Money Mark's tweets, they rehearsed for maybe 5 or 6 days before traveling for the shows in Baltimore, Asheville, and Bonnaroo. I imagine their rehearsing with Mark and Fredo in NYC consisted of 30% true rehearsing (i.e., playing) and 70% goofing off. (I'm not sure that's much different than most people working in any job.)

Funny screw-ups and playing poorly are two different things. I think it's fair to criticize the band on "Sabotage" at Bonnaroo. They played poorly. They should be able to play that particular song while in a coma and deaf. It's a disservice to the band if fans tell them it was ok when it was sloppy. It's the fans duty to put the band in check and speak the truth because all the people who work for and with them are always going to tell them they are great. Criticizing the band doesn't make you less of a fan; it makes you a discerning music fan. That said, fans must acknowledge technical problems and other things can affect a performance and not be too critical. I'm not sure what happened with the Nas song at Bonnaroo, but I don't think it was a ruined performance.

It's strange we haven't heard anything about them filming a video for the new record.
