I don't have all their stuff, but the 1986 album 'Infected' (which is really Johnson with backing musicians) is worth checking out for sure.

Is anyone here from the other side of the pond attending any of their shows?  If so, PLEASE...I WANT DETAILS!  ❤️

Thanks!  I'm very excited about this tour. Won't be in my neck of the woods until the end of September.

Nice!
I've been trying to look up reviews and such.  It's difficult to navigate.  When you tube in The The....well, the band doesn't always pop up; rather, everything thAt begins with the word "the" haha. 

Also, virtually nothing on YouTube. He apparently has asked people not to use their phones during the show.  Selfishly I wish someone would post something BUT (just like Kate Bush in London a few years back) I think it's cool the audience seem to be keeping their phones in their pockets.

Has anyone attended one of the European shows? Would love a review!
I'm excited to be attending a show here in the States next week!

Looks like live dates in 2019 are coming, not to mention work on a new album:  https://www.billboard.com/articles/columns/rock/8475267/the-the-documentary-interview

Kmama - I do know that a lot of the more politically-oriented The The songs are in the set. Songs like Heartland, Armageddon Days Are Here Again, and (my favorite) Sweet Bird Of Truth. There's even a song from the Burning Blue Soul album (the album Matt Johnson made before Soul Mining) in the set.

Excellent!
I've looked a bit a YouTube and spotted a clip here and there. His voice sounds incredible.
I'm very much looking forward to the show next week. Never thought I'd see him again.  Thank you!
