  1. It was a fun night with lots of friends, yeah!!! See you later in Valencia! 🙌🏻
  2. Such an accurate review of last night's show, gracias!!! It was a wonderful set and the band seemed to enjoy a lot! It felt wonderful to have them back over here. Cris PS: By the way, the chanting is "oeee, oeee, oeee, oeee" instead of olé (that's used for bullfighting chant, and we are not that keen on the matter in this region of Spain).
  3. Hola! It's gonna be my first Solid Sound experience!!! It's good to know that there's a meet-up place for VC people. Though I haven't checked much on here lately and hardly post anything at all, it will be fun to come by and meet some of you! Cheers, Cristina
  4. Hola! I haven't been around for some time but I've been thinking a lot about Wilco! ;o) I didn't find any info posted about The Autumn Defense's new & few tour dates. Here they are (US, London & Japan): http://us4.campaign-archive2.com/?u=9b062c97d146b7961fc57d8d6&id=88933dde19&e=c45940010a And a new song from their forthcoming "Fifth" album: http://www.pastemagazine.com/blogs/av/2013/09/song-premiere-the-autumn-defense---none-of-this-wi.html?utm_source=twitterfeed&utm_medium=twitter I just got myself a ticket for London's gig, though I don't live there and I'm not su
  5. Oh, I think she did great!! You can check out the video, she looked shy but she did wonderfully. I'm just too jealous! ;o) Imagine the situation, how brave of her to sing with Wilco live! 'Though in my case, if there ever was the chance, I would just faint, or even worse, would just go blank and stare speechless at Jeff... By the way, something I noticed about the audience: New fans! Young people on the first rows who were seeing the band live for the first time (at least in Madrid and Sevilla, the ones I talked to by my side). I must say the age on the first rows in Barcelona was older (jus
  6. Great show in Sevilla last week! It was a cold and rainy day but the audience reacted with a really warm welcome! I loved the happy start with “Dawned on Me”, the crowd made a great effort with “Jesus, Etc”, and I loved hearing some “new songs” that had not been played on my previous concerts on that week: “War on War”, “California Stars”, “The Late Greats” and surprisingly “You And I”… This was sung in duet with a lovely lady called Elena (I think she had something to do with the organization of the concert). I really loved the slow “Spiders” version and hearing “Shouldn’t be Ashamed” again w
  7. Back from the show!!! It's just too late now for a long report so I can only say that it was a brilliant concert! I really don't get tired of seeing the band playing and somehow they make every concert a new experience to me! With the Liceu they have already played all the classical venues in town so who knows where they'll be playing next time in Barcelona. They love this city, really, and Jeff thanked the audience a few times... The concert wasn't sold out (tickets were really expensive) but it looked quite full in the end. I was quite surprised for the really rocker start (as I was wrongly
  8. Yeahhhhhh!!!!!!!!!!!! I'll be at the show, so enjoy all of you who unfortunately can't make it, I know it's going to be great!!!! ;o)
  9. I love the poster!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Looking forward to the shows, in spite of the situation in our country. The stars will align and for a few hours we'll all forget about the rest and will just enjoy with our favourite music!!
  10. Hola! I still got a few days of holidays in October so I decided yesterday to extend my Wilco tour in Spain... So, besides Barcelona, I'll try to make it to Madrid and Sevilla!! I also decided against Murcia's show for the same fears of the audience not being too supportive to Wilco's music! ;o) I hope we are all wrong and you also have a fab time in Murcia! So see you maybe in Madrid?
  11. Yesterday's excitement about seeing the band live again covered the harsh reality of those prices... With what's going on in this country now I really don't know how many fans will be able to afford the tickets! I just checked for Liceu and obviously the ones being sold most are the seats on the top side balconies at 38 euro (also cheaper than last years prices at Palau de la Musica). And in Barcelona's case this time, I think the prices have to do with the chosen venue. As you can imagine there are still plenty at 85 & 125 euros... So dear Wilco, make it a long and unforgettable concert
  12. So excited to know that Wilco will be back in Spain next October, and more excited to have just got my tickets for their show at the Liceu in Barcelona!!!! The most amazing seated venue (an impressive opera hall by the Ramblas in the city center). I assume the rest of the dates are also seated venues... Dates are: 14 Oct 2012 / Bilbao, Spain / Palacio Euskalduna 15 Oct 2012 / Barcelona, Spain / Liceu 16 Oct 2012 / Madrid, Spain / Palacio Vistalegre 18 Oct 2012 / Sevilla, Spain / Auditorio Rocio Jurado Thanks WILCO!!!!!!!!!
  13. The pics are from the rehearsals of the show at a venue in town (the second space of Sala Apolo), far from the location of the main Festival. They also have some showcases and start and end of the week performances at that club: http://sanmiguelprimaverasound.es/primaveraCiutatClubs?lang=en I assume the Wilco guys were at the Forum and just joined the band for the real show (that I missed completely! I was listening to The Cure instead, and if I had known I could have been at both as The Cure played for more than 3 hours...). I bumped into Nels Cline by the end of The Cure's performance an
  14. A great video from the start of the concert with War on War (from another fan on the first row):
