King Khan & The Shrines H & E

Hopes: In my own little weird way I hope Khan does something like the above portrait or something equally (or more) outrageous. But, more importantly I wish to see an even greater performance, spectacle, if you will than I saw previously (which was one of my all time favorite concerts). I hope Gentlemen rock out even harder than the last two times I have seen them, playing all my favorites like “All I Need Tonight (Is You),” “Butterfingers,” “I Get So Excited,” and others. Lastly, I envision Red Mass to join my plethora of kick ass artists I have seen live and possibly become favorite of mine.

Expectations: This show is just as good, if not slightly better, than the last show, but lacks some of the intimacy of the Paradise setting. They put on a fun and/or entertaining show, but aren’t as “crazy” as they have been, which is more than ok as that’s not why I am going to see them (music clearly comes first). Gentlemen are just as good as last time, but don’t play all of my faves. And finally I expect Red Mass to be good, but probably not on the road to favoritism (a new word I coined).

In any case, I can’t wait!


  1. I don’t think so. He has been very restrained on the tour so far. Very controlled. The whole thing went off like clockwork.

    1. Do you think this has to do with an absence of consumption alcohol or drugs? I’ve noticed in footage from shows on this tour the same thing…pretty restrained, etc.

      1. “Je préférerais passer plus de temps à la maison, être davantage un homme de famille. À un moment donné, ça pèse, tous ces voyages”, he told the Voir weekly the other day.

        That means “I would prefer spending more time at home, being more a family man. At a given moment these voyages weigh heavily.”

        There’s your reason.

  2. Well, that’s fine. No pressure to him ha. I’m sure it will be a great performance either way. I’m really looking forward to it.
