Ed is also playing the Tin Angel in Philly on Monday April 20th. I just bought tickets (they have your name at the door actually; no physical tickets for shows here). I live in Philly, and go to this small club frequently........going tomorrow actually to see Jesse Malin. Anyway, some tips on this place:

* If you have dinner at their restaurant (Serrano), they reserve you a good table upstairs for the show (restaurant downstairs; music upstairs). It's well worth going that route. The food is pretty good and not very expensive. They hook up the people that call early in the game with the best seats/tables right by the stage, and work backwards from there pending on when you call. The room is a narrow rectangular set-up, so personally I think you have to be in the front 1/3 - 1/2 of the room to properly enjoy a show there. I've been in the back by the bar, and just don't like it all. So don't procrastinate...call them and they'll hook you with tix and a dinner reservation. They have someone answering phones virtually every day after Noon.

If you don't go the dinner route, GA seating is first come, first served. So get there a tad early and get in line so you get a good spot. The first 15-20 GA spots along the wall (stools) are pretty good and close to the stage. After that, the GA seats kind of suck if you ask me, because most are in the back half of the room.

You can buy tix online, but if you're doing dinner, I think it's easy to just call them directly to set it up. 215-928-0978 Enjoy, and hopefully this info helps some of y'all out.

Dammit why does the Philly show have to be on a Monday. I was hoping to see a solo Chameleon show on this little tour....but I guess no luck huh?

I doubt we'll be seeing a new album until 2010 at the earliest.

I thought word was this year. That sucks!

It would be sweet if they did Hawaii at the same time this year. I go every other year and the year they go (at the same time I always go) was an off year.

I have no inside info, but it looks as if they will focus to tour behind the DVD this year.

There are only a few tickets left for Ed's slo show in Philly. You can't order them online, you have to call:

Call 215.928.0770.

I'm still hoping for a new album this summer!

The result creates high anticipation for Live's next release, which Kowalczyk says they hope to have out in the summer of 2009. In addition to a new release, Live has a spring tour planned in Australia and a summer tour in the US expected to be announced next year.

Spring is here and no Australian tour. Plans change all the time.

yeah, I was really confident 2009 was THE year they would finally record a new album. But after reading the other thread I just posted in, I agree with Nick that I don't see a new album coming before early 2010. Releasing that they started recording SFBM in the first half of 2005, this would made it the biggest gap between two albums (yes, I know there was a dvd recording in between, but still...)

This is going to be Live's first album as an independent, and I don't want them to rush it. They need to plan a release date in advance and figure how they want to promote the single/album. They should also take a few months off to recharge before a tour begins for the album

I already think the band is promoting themselves a bit better. In Atlantic City, the Live poster for the show clearly had www.friendsoflive.com on it. so they are trying to get people to the website and building their presence on the web through Facebook/Myspace etc.

Spring/Summer 2010 would be a good time for an album release.

More to come.

Just for the record, I'm not a huge fan of this solo gigs idea. Get together with your band and produce something.

Is this some "I could have done it on my own midlife crisis thing" or is he doing it for kicks. If for kicks, kick your ass back to the studio with your band.
chazeye
I agree with Hoodstock..........get together with your band and make a badass record. You'd think these guys would be itching to make a great record. And should we be reading anything into this solo show spurt? Does Ed have aspirations of going out on his own? Man, I hope not.

The 4/20 Philly show at the Tin Angel is SOLD OUT by the way. I was there tonite for a show, and a chic I was hanging with got shut down trying to buy tix. They told her another show may be added. I kind of doubt that, but I guess time will tell..............

No, I don't think so. Ed just always says it's fun to do because that (he solo + acoustic guitar) is where all the songs come from. But I guess he would be bored if he could only do solo shows instead of full band performances.
I also don't see a future Eddie K. solo record happen. He just plays songs from Live, and there's no difference if he would write songs for a solo record. he writes both of them anyway tongue.gif

lol well there are about 87,000 places to play on Long Island, so it's a little hard to say.

Tickets are sold out online for the NJ show. You can call this number (201-653-3355) to see if there are other ways to purchase the leftover tickets. My guess is that RXP will be doing give aways for the remaining tickets.

I just found out that a second show will NOT be added.

There are roughly 20 seats left for the Long Island solo show. They seem to be selling really fast.

The lead singer of the Alternate Routes will be opening for Ed in Hoboken and I'm guessing all these solo shows. Both bands are associated with Vanguard, so it makes perfect sense. A Live/Alternate Routes summer tour would rock! smile.gif

I actually think the show in Hoboken may have two openers:

Live frontman makes plans for rare solo show

Live frontman Ed Kowalczyk (BMS file photo)
Live frontman Ed Kowalczyk will perform a "secret" solo acoustic show at Great Scott in Allston on Thursday, April 23. Tickets for the rare and intimate show are now on sale for $15 via Ticket Web.

Live was most recently in town last month for a sold out show at the House of Blues and is expected to return to New England this summer, though no official tour plans have been released. Last fall, the band released a live CD/DVD, Live at the Paradiso - Amsterdam. Their last studio album was 2006's Songs from Black Mountain.

Updated: 4/9/2009

In Hoboken, Ed's set time is 1 hour and begins at 10 pm. There are 2 opening acts. The second of which "The Alternate Routes" are pretty good. See you all there!
SJN1279
Notes on Hoboken show:

- Excellent show, the crowd was very into it

-Very hot at the show, every time Ed commented about it, the a/c would turn on (pretty funny)

-Ed did not play the new song

-Played an acoustic version of All Over You that rocked!

There was a meet and greet afterwards and my friend is staying to get a pic with Ed. Any news and I'll report it.

Setlist

I Alone
The Distance
Mirror Song
Nobody Knows
Forever
Turn My Head
All Over You
The Dolphin's Cry
Heaven
Lightning Crashes

Encore
Sophia
Overcome
Selling the Drama
