DEVO Tour 2010 – Northern Lights 7/31

Yes, brace yourselves…the rockclub Northern Lights (Clifton Park, NY ) will have their venue honored with the presence of the legendary group DEVO on July 31, 2010.  I’m sure this show will be sold out in no time and promises to be a fun time listening to DEVO music past and present.

DEVO is touring in support of their new album Something For Everyone which is their first album in 20 years.  Although here at HiFi Central we have not had the pleasure to listen to it yet, there is an good blog review of the album at this link, so check it out if you are interested.

In 2009, prior to the Something For Everyone release, the band was doing 2-night shows where they played Are We Not Men? (night 1) and Freedom Of Choice (night 2) in their entirety; I’m curious what they will do with this tour, I’m sure it will be a culmination of all three albums so clearly there will be a little bit of everything for everyone at this show.  I’ve read past reviews of their shows and nearly everyone was happy with the performance and selection of songs they choose to play, oddly one reviewer was shocked that they never played their identifiable hit Whip It, is this possible?  I can’t imagine a DEVO show without this classic, can you?

I’m not sure how much tickets are, but from past experience they usually run around $45, which is a bit steep for DEVO.  Get your tickets as soon as they go on sale, I’m sure they will sell out quickly!

Devo Lives!

No, it is not a joke. DEVO is actually alive and well…and touring.  Having a 2-year old I have been entertained by Mark Mothersbaugh’s (lead singer of DEVO) cameo’s on Nickelodeon’s Yo Gabba Gabba kids show, but never thought that DEVO was still alive and well.  Appearently DEVO is playing in New York City’s Irving Plaza tonight 11/21 and in Toronto on Monday and Tuesday, cool! 

DEVO has been playing the same city two nights in a row intentionally in order play both albums Are We Not Men?  and Freedom Of Choice each night in their entirety, what a killer idea!  Brace yourself Toronto, I’m sure it will be a great show.

11/23 & 11/24 Toronto, Canada – Pheonix Concert Center

Why don’t more bands do this?  Could you imagine if Rush played Hemispheres and 2112 night one and Moving Pictures and Counterparts night 2? Or Metallica playing Kill em’ All night and Black night night one, perhaps Justice for All and Ride The Lightning night two?  I think that DEVO might be on to something…eh?

I’m  happy to hear that DEVO still has a following since they were definitely a defining sound of the 1980’s when I was growing up.
