    because it's so NOT in the spirit of the actual event. While the parade is actually a MARCH, with a nod towards its protest roots, the dance on the pier aka Pride Island is a CELEBRATION. It's a party, it's fun. So that setlist doesn't quite feel right.

    this has been rumored for months -- any more info yet?

    for the first round of U.S. dates (NY/Chicago/LA), we were supposed to hear by Sunday 5/19 by Noon ET -- but Chicago people started finding out Monday into Tuesday, Los Angeles Tuesday into Wednesday, and then NYC Wednesday into Thursday. And as far as I could tell -- there were no more confirmations after Thursday night or overnight into Friday AM that week. With additional dates now in NY & LA, plus all the other U.S. cities, it's safe to assume the rollout of confirmations will take longer than it did that first week, as there's many more dates to distribute. Good luck! By the way, many people were actually first alerted of their selection when the authorization hit their credit cards. Sometimes HOURS before getting the email confirmation. ***Also, it's probably a good idea to contact your credit card company NOW to give them a heads up that a larger than usual charge may be coming through in the next week. With prices so high, some credit card companies' systems flag these sales as potential fraud and then the orders don't go through -- so it's best to give them advanced notice just in case.

    i'm still waiting re: NY but not holding my breath at this point. I have not seen or heard about ANY confirmations or credit authorizations today or most of yesterday. Sigh.

    Artists use crowdfunding for projects like this so they can release the projects totally independently, without a record company -- so they can control the entire thing, and so they don't have deal with the whole legal mess of signing a deal, splitting profits, etc. -- it takes a lot of $$$ to produce music, produce and distribute physical copies, market & promote. Crowdfunding would cover all that or at least make a dent. It's not about being hard up. He's the writer & producer of some of the biggest hits of the 80's into the 90's -- i'm sure he's doing quite well.

    I don't think you actually get charged until a project gets funded, and since he cancelled it, I don't believe anyone was ever charged.

    Friday night shows? Five nights in a row? Cannot be accurate.
  9. Holy shit you're right. Not that I doubted you, I just hadn't noticed any of that before. I've only been listening either at my desk at work, or my desk at home, or one pretty basic headphones to and from work -- but not with any great equipment or anything -- yet, I turned off my AC and listened just on my computer and sure enough, everything you pointed out is there. Most people will likely never notice, but true audiophiles or sound mixer types will. Kind of shocked it's so sloppy. Is that common these days? Sigh. (BTW, doesn't prevent me from enjoying the music, but again, i'm not listening on high end equipment, so I may never have noticed.)

    For those that don't know, the annual NYC pride Dance on the Pier evolved into a 2-day event called "Pride Island" on the Saturday & Sunday of Pride. The Main Event is still Sunday -- Grace Jones is the headliner for SATURDAY. The Sunday headliner has not yet been announced. And to whoever said it's cheesy or desperate must not be familiar with Pride in New York City -- it's a huge, major event that has attracted A-list talent over the last 20 years or so... Whitney Houston, Janet Jackson, Cher, Kylie Minogue, Jennifer Lopez, Ariana Grande, Fergie, Demi Lovato and many other big dance/pop divas have headlined. Yes it's a big messy circuit-type party -- but people have been clamoring for her to do it for YEARS. Rumors about her headlining are floated EVERY year but this time around, the buzz is stronger than ever. She's got a brand new album coming, she appeared at Stonewall on New Year's Eve, she's being honored by GLAAD in May, it just makes perfect sense. We'll know soon.
