Jeff, Mike and Pat review this week's news in the amusement industry.

In addition, even if it were offered, ACE couldn't afford to move it on their own.
"James" are back together and putting out a new CD in September.
Let me ramble a bit here.... Not sure if you picked it up yet, but in 2002 they put out a great Live Cd called "Getting away with it... Live" which was at the time their "last" concert and its fantastic. It features good mix of their career's songs. Also, Tim Booth has come out with a solo called "Bone" since James ended.
And the Cure are coming out with one in September, too... if you're interested.
A band i saw a few years ago, and I actually had a topic on here about it was Tears for Fears.. and they had a really great show. That was 2004.. time sure has flown.
They never played "woman in Chains", but as Jeff said before, why even bother without Oleta Adams?
I do like some newer music Shiny Toy Guns, Panic at the Disco and The Killers have stood out as of more recent bands I've enjoyed, and now im getting more into the Female Fronted Goth Metal Bands (Nightwish, Evanescence, Lacuna Coil)
But give me Depeche Mode, James, Morrissey and Pet Shop Boys anytime
If you're lucky enough you'll see one of their videos on the Kennywood CCTV system. (Rainy Monday)

I was working in college radio at the time of WOMAD, so I bumped into Peter Gabriel (he's a little fella) and Lenny Kravitz (he's enormous) among others. Kravitz was surprisingly down to earth.
Just looked up the "Stripped" cover on Amazon MP3. Not bad. Always one of my favorite Douche Mode songs.
Never saw TFF live. Still find it odd that of all their songs, Mad World has seen a resurgence. Yes, I know it was covered for a video game, but if I had to pick the top 10 songs from them that would get popular again, that probably wouldn't have even made the list.
I love it when threads get hijacked for new wave discussions. It's usually just me and John, so it's nice to have another as part of it, too.
Looking forward to the new Cure record. Flew out to San Fran to see them with a friend last fall. They went on for almost three hours, and were heavy on Kiss Me Kiss Me Kiss Me tunes. Great show. Robert still sounds perfect, and was having a really good time. The hair's getting a bit ridiculous, though. ;)
Yeah, Crowded House was on that tour, about the time Together Alone came out. Great album, love the title track.
Another great concert was Depeche Mode on the Exciter tour and Poe as the opener in 2001 and my virgin concert was Cranberries/Toad The Wet Sprocket both held at Blossom in 1995... I'm starting to date myself.
I still need to see Morrissey before I die, and I had the chance last year and didn't.
Yeah kpjb, its always great to talk music with you.
I saw Douche Mode on the Violator tour, front row.

The Wild Mood Swings tour was great in Pittsburgh, too. They went on for about an hour and a half doing all obscurities, no hits. Great for a long time fan. Never thought I'd hear "Piggy In The Mirror" live. Now I have. When they came back for the encore, it was another hour and a half, this time hit after hit. I swear they played every single they ever recorded. I've seen them four times, they never dissapoint.
Morrissey sucks. :) Had tickets to see him in the 90's, big letters on the front of the ticket "RAIN OR SHINE". It sprinkled, he canceled. As people were already at the venue. About 5 years ago, he's back. This time Moz has a headache. Cancels the show, again as people are already in the venue.
Saw the Cranberries open for Duran Duran before they were anybody. I enjoyed their set more than D2.
