Night Flight To Rio

Wednesday, October 17th, 2007

Beck is reportedly opening for The Police on their South American tour this December.  All the reports I’ve seen are in Spanish, and I don’t know Spanish.  But some quick Google searches seem to say that Beck is involved at both shows in Argentina (Dec 1 & 2) and the show in Chile (Dec 5).  I’d assume also the show in Rio on Dec. 8 for now.

Will Beck play “Tropicalia,” “Deadweight,” and “Missing” all back to back?  I hope so!


Again, I don’t know Spanish, but from what I understand some fans in Chile have started a petition to get Beck to do a solo show separate from The Police while there. Go here if you want to sign:

Shirley Manson = FAIL. Sia Furler FTW.

There was a media report or two back not long ago that Beck was working on a song with Shirley Manson for her solo album.  I had added it as “Unknown Shirley Manson Collaboration” on Almost A Ghost.

Turns out, this rumor is not true.  The media lies!  Don’t believe everything that you read!  Get a parking violation and a maggot on your sleeve!

Beck’s right-hand man, Justin Meldal-Johnsen, does and has worked with Shirley and he debunked it.

Beck is, however, going to be on Sia Furler’s upcoming album, so look for that!
