We’re almost at #1! I know what you’re thinking… It’s about time! LOL… In all seriousness, we are not at #2 and #3 of Scotty’s top concerts of 2012.
Both of these backs are favorites of mine, I love me some No Doubt. Gwen Stefani is simply awesome and New Order are equally amazing. I wish i could have caught both of these shows last year but alas you can’t do it all right?
Check out Scotty’s recap and links to the original reviews after the jump!
3. No Doubt – Gibson Amphitheatre – Los Angeles, CA – 11/24/12
No Doubt – Gibson Amphitheatre – Los Angeles, CA – 12/4/12
Finally, it was around 9:15p.m. or 9:20p.m. and the lights went out. My back and feet were killing me at this point because of the many hours of standing.
I knew the pain would be gone momentarily once Gwen, Tony, Tom, and Adrian came on stage. The band made their way out and pure joy ran through my veins, as well as everyone around me. The band played everyone’s favorite hits and a few of the new songs for a GREAT set list. The set list was as follows:
Push and Shove, It’s My Life, Hella Good, Underneath It All, Ex-Girlfriend, Hey Baby, New, Hey You (Acoustic), Sparkle (Acoustic), Simple Kind of Life (Acoustic), One More Summer (Acoustic), Sunday Morning, Happy Now, Settle Down, Don’t Speak, Just a Girl, Looking Hot, Total Hate, Spiderwebs.
I was thrilled with the music, the staging, and the video backdrops. Gwen’s voice was the best I have heard it. Her voice seems to get better with age, and she has never looked better. She was definitely “Looking Hot.” As the lyrics go… “Go ahead and stare, and take a picture please if you need…” As you will see from the gallery of photos, I needed more than a picture.
2. New Order – Greek Theatre – Los Angeles, CA – 10/7/12
WOW! New Order did not disappoint. In fact, they BLEW ME AWAY. It was like hearing the angels play in heaven to hear “Ceremony,” “Perfect Kiss,” “Love Vigilantes,” and “Temptation” live! The night was pure magic.
Thank you to New Order and their manager for an unforgettable night!
