Belgian and all other Lokerse Feesten goers watch out for tommorrow's set times:

The Chems and Charlotte de Witte will be switching slots due to different travel schedules. Charlotte will be on at 10:30 PM and the The Chems will close the night starting 0:45 AM!

(kinda odd since I always thought Charlotte was meant to be the opneing act anyways).

Have a great night everybody.
You wanna know my biggest disappointment for the live sets 2019? You wanna know? I tell you what my biggest disappointment is: I AM FUCKING NOT THERE!

Yeah, but allegedly she was supposed to be the closing act. That's what I found odd.

There's no thread for todays gig in Sofia / Bulgaria (or i'm blind) and i don't wan't to open one for one question.

Ed has postet an Instagram Story from the rehearsals for this show (here's Ed's Insta => https://www.instagram.com/eddyboysimons , don't think it is possible to link stories directly) and i'm highly interested in what tune we hear in that clip. Must be some kind of seague, maybe from or to Galvanize, but there's also some vocals in there that seem to say "chemical brothers" or something


Should i listen to that Creamfields recording linked above again and i hear that short sequence?

The song heard in the story is Hoops

  • feeling just fine on a new forum!
A little disappointed there haven’t (apparently) been any new ideas developed during the month off showing up in the Bulgaria footage, but if they’re keeping this tour going into next year then I imagine there’s still plenty more runway for that sort of thing.
As I think I’ve mentioned before, the history bears out that Chems live shows are usually at their best when they have a reason to stay on the road and keep refining things, so this has me really excited - especially since I can say from personal experience that the No Geography show as-is has been one of their best pre-encore setlists ever. Plus, like with my previous example of them keeping the WATN tour going to promote Brotherhood, the function of the tour’s probably going to shift towards the Surrender boxset at some point, with attendant nostalgic deep-cut additions a la “Nude Night” (“Let Forever Be” more than once ever, maybe?).

(But please, guys! “The Universe Sent Me”! I love “Escape Velocity” but it can give up its spot for awhile! Just put a different verse of “The Golden Path” on top if that’s what you’re concerned about!)
I need the Miguel version of the album

I stalk this forum in the shadows.

But I was really happy to see this from last night - EDIT SPOILERS IF PEOPLE WANT TO AVOID FUTURE CHEM SHOW SURPRISES

Holy guacamole, is it just me or does that venue seem quite huge and jam-packed?

  • Anyone with a copy of Velodrome?
They've just added an April 2020 date. Maybe we're getting a 2020 tour too :)

https://www.entradasamarillas.com/event/festival-estereo-picnic-2020

I expect some march dates a well, but if april is the earliest, so be it. Dec 2019-Feb 2020 is vacation days! oh screw it! give them march too because like WN said, they've been grinding for a along time.

I was anticipating for minor teaks thrown into the set. Tom's mind constantly toying with new ideas may come to the surface at anytime (perhaps new stuff on the UK dates)

Elcomplicado, I like your synopsis of the concert. Judging by your good vibes and nerdy references, I think you'll find some common ground here on the forum. Tom and Ed certainly have a way of putting Glint in peoples eyes!

  • ..and Star Guitar horny synth
This absolute invariance of the show makes me remember how The Prodigy did shows for a several years in a row. It adds fuel to the fire knowing that Tom & Ed have just announced some shows for 2020
