Jamie Lee Curtis, actress from such films as Freaky Friday, A Fish Called Wander, and True Lies co-starring former Mr. Olympia, Arnold, has made a statement that bands should consider performing matinee’s. She made reference to one Bruce Springsteen – if that means anything…
As per Louder Sound, we all know it’s true: when you reach a certain age, your habit of staying up late into the early hours starts to wain, and all of a sudden, mosh pits at 10pm seem like a fruitless excursion that’ll usually leave you with a pulled muscle or aching back to deal with the next morning. Or, perhaps you’ve simply never been about that late gig finish life and enjoy your bed a little more than most.
Not all people turn away from evening socializing so easily, but Halloween legend Jamie Lee Curtis is one music fan who would like the live scene somewhat reshuffled to make it a more enjoyable experience for those who don’t consider themselves willing to be waiting all night long to see the bands they enjoy.
During a conversation on the red carpet at the Independent Spirit Awards this weekend on March 4, Curtis told The Hollywood Reporter that she actually declined her invite to an Oscars nominee dinner because of her desire to go to bed early, and that she’d like more events, such as a concerts, to take place earlier in the day.“I am gonna just say this now as a taunt and as a suggestion. U2: do a matinee. Coldplay: do a matinee. What about a 12 noon concert, Coldplay? What about it, Bruce Springsteen? Do a fucking matinee! You’re old! Why wouldn’t you let me come see you, Bruce Springsteen, in your glory days – pun intended – and do it at noon or one o’clock? two o’clock! two o’clock matinee! “Theatre in New York, two o’clock! I will come and hear your five-hour concert, Bruce, at two o’clock, and I’m gonna be home and in bed by 7:30.”
