Recent tour reviews
So freaking good. I’ve been a fan for 15 years, saw them for the first time last night and it was really everything I could have dreamed. They were engaged with the crowd, had high energy and played some amazing songs
Report as inappropriate
They absolutely tore it up. The venue was great and the crowd had their moments both good and bad. Wasn’t sure what to expect, but they exceeded all expectations. One of the best shows that I’ve seen this year.
The Hives do not simply perform, they attack. The unconventional Swedish rockers perform often in formal attire giving them a sinister Clockwork Orange appearance at times. It is a strange convention for a band who perform in such an energetic manner to have adopted as you imagine the group must really struggle to move in their finest dinner outfits.
They have the crowd onside from the offset with a raucous version of 'Come On!' that cements their intent and proves they are here to really showcase why they are such an exciting group. They cram their very finest material into a concise, pacy set as frontman Pelle Almqvist encourages the crowd to dance, jump, sing and cheer along with the anthemic show. They are more than obliged to do so for favourites such as 'Hate to Say I Told You So' and 'My Time Is Coming'. It is the last track though 'Tick Tick Boom' that best showcases the frantic, bizarre world of The Hives and the atmosphere achieved is one of complete uniqueness.

ABOUT GREEN DAY
Formed in 1986 in Berkeley, CA, Green Day is one of the world’s best-selling bands of all time, with more than 75 million records sold worldwide and 10 billion cumulative audio/visual streams. The five-time Grammy Award-winning Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees released their breakout album Dookie in 1994 , which sold over 10 million and achieved 10x Platinum Diamond status, is widely credited with popularizing and reviving mainstream interest in punk rock, catapulting a career-long run of #1 hit singles. Entertainment Weekly calls Green Day, “The most influential band of their generation,” while Rolling Stone attests, “Green Day have inspired more young bands to start than any act this side of Kiss, and that doesn’t seem to be changing.” In 2004, Green Day released the rock opera American Idiot which captured the nation’s attention, selling more than 8 million copies in the U.S. alone and taking home the Grammy Award for Best Rock Album. Mojo declared “It’s exhilarating stuff, the kind of record that sets new parameters as to what is possible from a punk rock’n’roll band in the 21st century.” In 2010, a stage adaptation of American Idiot debuted on Broadway to critical and commercial acclaim. Released in 2020, Green Day’s thirteenth studio album Father Of All… debuted at #1 on Billboard’s Album Sales Chart and #1 in both the U.K. and Australia. Pitchfork declared, “Green Day’s most fetching and youthful songs in ages. The trio sounds reinvigorated, more like hungry newcomers staking their claim.” In July 2021, Green Day embarked on The Hella Mega Tour (w/ Fall Out Boy & Weezer). The global tour included 29 sold-out stadium gigs – including renowned venues like London Stadium and Los Angeles’ Dodger Stadium. On October 24, the band announced the release of their highly anticipated 14th studio album, Saviors, coming January 19, ‘24 and released their brand new single, “The American Dream Is Killing Me.”

Brit Beat: The Hives’ British Manager on the Swedish Band’s Conquest of Latin America
The Hives have been around for 30 years now , but they could end 2023 as Venezuela’s new favorite band.
According to their British management company, ATC Management, the Swedish group will become the first major international rock band to appear in the South American territory for a decade, when they headline Caracas’ Concha Acústica de Bello Monte venue on December 7. U.S. sanctions against the country were finally eased earlier this year.

“Because of the sanctions, it became an unviable market [for international rock bands],” ATC’s Matthew Greer tells Variety . “We just happened to have the good timing to be the first ones in. Hopefully, The Hives can be part of the journey to re-open the country and have bigger artists go down there.
“Venezuela is such a huge country, but it’s been isolated from the benefits of the music industry boom in Latin America over the last 10 years. It’s definitely overdue for Western artists to go there.”
The visit will be filmed by a local production crew for a documentary and ATC’s Brian Message expects there to be some “spicy” moments on the visit to one of the few territories the Hives have never played before. The date is part of a larger tour of South America, where the band’s notoriously no-holds-barred shows have found a new audience since their return from an 11-year album hiatus with “The Death of Randy Fitzsimmons,” a No. 2 hit in the U.K. and a top 50 record in America.
ATC took on the band in 2022 and worked with them on what Message calls “a comeback plot designed to hit it hard in key markets”. The original plan was to quickly release a follow-up album, but that will now emerge next year after the band landed the support slot on Arctic Monkeys’ U.K. stadium tour and other dates.
“It was great for us to be able to go out with a band of that stature, who’ve got such a big youth following now because of TikTok,” Message says.
“Many of the crowd were too young to go to shows before Covid and you could tell they were blown away by the Hives’ banter, the stage presence, the high jinks, the outfits,” adds Greer. “The whole thing was this real assault on the senses, and it was super fun to see them win the crowds over.”
The band is currently on a sold-out U.S. tour, which concludes with two dates at The Belasco in Los Angeles on November 14-15, with Message saying the band has “huge momentum in America – and everybody, led by the band, wants to keep pushing that forward.” The Hives will support Foo Fighters in America next year, amongst further touring and festival dates.
The Hives were one of the most popular live rock draws of the 2000s, and the ATC executives are confident they can scale even greater heights two decades later.
“They’re a global band, they’re not just a legacy indie band,” says Greer. “There’s such great demand for brilliant live bands – they’re few and far between, so this can keep going much, much further. We have definite arena ambitions for all over the world and I don’t think there’s anything that should stop us in achieving that.”
Meanwhile, Brighton-based band Lovejoy is blazing a trail for British indie rock, having made a significant breakthrough at U.S. alternative radio.
The band’s single, “Call Me What You Like” became the first debut top-five hit for a British band on the Billboard Alternative Airplay chart since Nothing But Thieves’ “Trip Switch” in 2016. And it’s not just a one-off: The follow-up, “Normal People Things,” is already climbing the same chart. It’s currently at No. 24.
“‘Call Me What You Like’ is a really original, punchy rock song,” says Matt Riley, managing director of AWAL U.K., which releases Lovejoy’s music. “We could go to radio with a justified fanbase of Gen Z kids that shows there’s an audience for this. And what’s helpful with Lovejoy is their fans are the biggest lobbyists for that band ever – if they do something for [a station’s] YouTube channel, it will become the most viewed thing, because all the Gen Z kids turn up – and radio stations know that.”
The band’s singer Wilbur Soot originally found fame as a Twitch streamer and YouTuber, and previously released solo material, but Riley says Soot is fully focused on the band.
“What’s great about Lovejoy is, it isn’t a side project for YouTubers, it’s actually a proper band,” Riley says. “With other YouTube people, maybe some of their audience has declined because the pandemic’s over, whereas he’s going into a whole new place with this.”
Soot’s online presence has helped the band build what Riley calls “a rampant Gen Z audience,” famous in the U.K. for queuing for hours outside venues where the band plays – and for going wild once they actually get inside. And the band has been hitting the road hard, playing over 100 shows in the past 18 months including two previous U.S. visits ahead of the tour that kicks off in Washington D.C. on December 1.
“They’re paying their dues and doing it the right way,” adds Riley. “They understand you need to do the work, play hundreds of shows, and get really great if you’re going to go all the way. If you’re a guitar band, you have to earn the right to exist within the pantheon, if that’s where you want to be.”
Despite the U.K.’s stellar reputation for guitar bands, there have been few U.S. breakthroughs in recent years. Riley signed the band with AWAL U.S. President Pete Giberga and credits AWAL/In2une Music’s Dave Lombardi with the U.S. radio campaign, outlining how AWAL’s strategy of working the band globally from the start shows a possible way forward for other British companies.
“If you only think about the U.K., and you have to do things here before you go anywhere – things go quicker than that these days,” he says. “When it’s time, it’s time.”
Despite racking up 850 million global streams, according to AWAL, and having over 30 million combined followers across group and individual solo social accounts, Lovejoy has only released EPs thus far. Riley says the band will record “something longer,” which may or may not become their debut album, once the tour is over. But, whatever comes next, he’s confident Lovejoy is headed for big things on both sides of the Atlantic.
“If Wilbur can get what’s in his head onto a record, there’s no limit to where they can go,” he says. “A lot of people still love rock bands. I don’t see why the biggest act in the world can’t be a rock band again at some point soon.”
The U.K. music industry is still reeling from the after-effects of the Department for Culture, Media & Sport Committee’s inquiry into the economics of music streaming.
But now comes the news of a DCMS Select Committee review, hearing and report into the U.K’s grassroots live venues sector. According to the Music Venue Trust (MVT), 128 such venues have closed in the last 12 months, cutting off many communities from the chance to see live music.
MVT founder and CEO Mark Davyd welcomes the review – but hopes the industry has learned the lessons of the fractious streaming sessions.
“My colleagues in the live music industry should look at that inquiry,” he says. “Don’t turn up with your head buried in the sand. Turn up with an understanding of what’s going on, turn up with something to offer and some positive suggestions. If we aren’t prepared to take action ourselves, you can pretty much be certain the action will be taken for us.”
Davyd says he would prefer the industry to come up with its own solution to the grassroots circuit crisis, rather than have the government intervene. He points to the English soccer industry as a good potential model for what the music industry should be doing, with the Premier League supporting grassroots football initiatives.
“Football recognizes it doesn’t have any direct financial interest in there being a pitch in Nantwich – but you don’t know who might play football there,” Davyd says. “You need the facilities to be there so there can be a petri dish developing the next generation of footballers. The same applies to musicians.”
The MVT has been campaigning for arenas and stadiums to support grassroots venues by raising funds through their ticket sales, but Davyd also wants record labels and other trade bodies to come together to support the sector, warning that swift action is required to avoid further closures.
“This hearing should be the end of the Mexican standoff where everybody points at each other and says, ‘Perhaps they can do something about it’,” he says. “If we all decided to act together, it could be very easily tackled. But if there is no will to do things we really should be doing then, at some point, we should expect things will be done to us that perhaps we might not like.”
One bit of good news for the U.K.’s live music scene comes from central London’s Outernet complex.
Outernet houses two live venues: The 2,000-capacity HERE and the 350-capacity The Lower Third, with both now granted a rare 4 a.m. late license.
Outernet operating partner Karrie Goldberg tells Variety the move will allow the venue “to provide an even broader spectrum of cultural programming, which will be sustainable through the increased revenue generated from the later hours.”
Goldberg says the complex, which opened last year, sold 87,000 tickets across 160 ticketed events between September 2022 and 2023, despite Britain’s raging cost-of-living crisis hitting gig-goers’ spending power. It will now significantly expand its number and range of events as it continues its mission to “bring live music back to central London.”
“We will create space for new promoters and for sub-cultures to flourish, so we can welcome even more touring and international artists,” she says. “It’s important to give up-and-coming artists a new place to launch their careers, as well as be a platform for global stars – and this license extension will help us continue doing what we do best.”

The Sand Man is making waves.
Based on what we’ve seen on Instagram , Adam Sandler , 57, has electrified audiences all over North America on his ‘I Missed You Tour’ where he performs at cities he didn’t get to earlier this year.
“Felt good to be laughing with you,” he shared.
And if you want to laugh with the “Saturday Night Live” alum and 2023 Mark Twain Prize for American Humor recipient from now until mid-December, it isn’t too late to grab tickets to see the funnyman live.
As of now, tickets are available for the 13 remaining dates on his 2023 tour schedule.
Some are fairly affordable too compared to what they cost when the tour started back in October .
At the time of publication, our team found tickets going for as low as $48 before fees on Vivid Seats (compared to $88 for the same show less than a month ago).
Other shows on the fall run aren’t quite as cheap — based on our findings, the lowest price at Sandler shows will run you anywhere from $50 to $186 before fees.
Looking for a few more details before smashing that buy button ?
You’re in the right place, Sandler fans.
We’ve got everything you need to know and more about the ‘I Missed You Tour’ below.
All prices listed above are subject to fluctuation.
