excited!! an album wouldn't hurt at this point....

Anonymous's picture

Glad to hear this, maybe this album is really gonna happen 

.andrea.'s picture

I'm soooo excited!!!

Black Kat's picture

Both sound good, yeah the album being released wouldnt go amiss either!  It didnt surprise me too much that the facebook was closed down, I think it got a bit heavy with sycophants and also abusive people, which was a shame.  Judging by newspaper reports it's obvious that she's having a hard time personally, hopefully it'll get sorted out in time.  Last thing she wants is abuse on facebook I guess.  Anyway, let us hope that we get peeks of the shows via youtube etc!

cynthrmr's picture

she better come  to Los Angeles.. I'm dying to see her!!

Tomášek's picture

It's absolutely great !!! I am looking forward! I want more concerts..

summer nights's picture

So 2 of the 3 new shows are going through as Hole? I know what Courtney said, but I'm still waiting for Eric to make a move to block her. Or maybe he's gonna let it go. Anyway. 6 days left of this year... Are we actually expecting something to happen on Jan 1? Still no promo, track list, label, art, price, listing, etc... I don't think it's coming! Unless she drops it online... But where? There's no site, no Facebook/Myspace/Twitter either. I remember being soooooooooo excited last year and checking and being sooo outraged. Anyway I don't believe the new album will make the deadline... I was thinking once the tour began some press releases might go out etc, but it seems to be happening pretty quietly so far... I'm worried! I've heard that the single alone will be released on Jan 01... If THAT happens I will be surprised (In a pleasant way!) and super excited. I think we need a solid update from Courtney herself on the album status and what to expect Jan 01.

i just read the wikipedia page... it clarified some of the mess and gave a label... mmmmmmmmmmm. ok so if the single, which is apparently the only thing promised, hits on jan 1 i will be a very happy boy!

.andrea.'s picture

Courtney wrote on eric's facebook page the other day:

"why would you want to embarass yourself? this isnt rem or u2 its mine and i worked my ass of on it last round you did the dollhead experience and made that worthless and did the disease model tours test kit wich today is an entity of azoff family llc and golden gate properties and enjoys an amex. dollhead ha..."

"but we can work something out just why make it stupid? you dont want to be in hole anymore, there is nothing here for you, i will chant for you."

"it is hole cos its hole"

"hey clowney call me if you want"

WeepingWall's picture

that sounds like he might be challenging her use of "Hole" Why does she says "you don't want to be in Hole anymore" when he said publicly he was interested in discussing it. It is crazy reading the sleeve notes of America's Sweetheart when she addressing Eric and Melissa and makes it sounds like she was just taking a break, but that they would be together again as Hole.  That would be nice. Hole looked good together.

Glinda's picture

I love Courtney and her music, but Hole isn't hers alone. Courtney is very talented but she did not single handedly write the songs all by herself. Eric helped a lot. So it's not like when Billy Corgan uses Smashing Pumpkins or Trent Reznor uses Nine Inch Nails. They were all of those bands, but Courtney wasn't all Hole.But I think it depends on what Eric wants. If he doesn't care about Hole anymore and doesn't want to be in the band, then he should let her use the name. But if he wants to be in it, she shouldn't throw him out and use the name.

Anonymous's picture

I can see both sides of it. Eric was hugely important to Hole, everybody knows that. But it wasn't like Eric was Slash or The Edge or Peter Buck - nobody wen't to a Hole show to see Eric tear up the guitar. He was a pretty good, if not unremarkable guitar player. Actually, it wouldn't surprise me if 90% of people who liked Hole or ever bought any of their records even knew his name. So in that regard I can see why Courtney considers Hole her band. But of course Eric was her main collaborator, so he had a huge part in the band too which cannot be dismissed as easily as Courtney does.Courtney worked on this album with Micko Larkin in the same way she worked on past Hole albums with Eric, so I can also see why Courtney thinks of this album as a band effort and not a solo album. Hole was always a vehicle for Courtneys lyrics and vision. And lets face it, 10 times the amount of people who were interested before are now interested because this is a Hole record.I really don't care if it is released as Hole or as Courtney Love or something else. I just want it to be released. And I hope that Eric isn't going to be the one to make us wait even longer because he is getting pissy over a band name.

WeepingWall's picture

you make very good points.I think also had there not been a long gap/breakup of the band, and Eric left and Micko joined (which is essentially what happened) it would be looked at differently.

Glinda's picture

That's a brilliant point. Bands change guitarists and other musicians all the time during the course of when they are working. Hole had different drummers and bassists when they were together. But I think it's totally different when a band breaks up and doesn't do anything in a long period of time. Then people see it as a reunion and so expect most of the original members. People wonder why you are all of a sudden starting up the band again, it seems like if you really cared about it you should have kept it going with different members. Using the name again comes off as a cynical business move in that case.I know everyone wanted to see Courtney and not Eric. but that to me is not the standard for whether you should be able to use the same name, who was the most famous. The standard should be did the other band members participate a lot in the songwriting and general idea of the band, or were they just backing musicians who played whatever the singer wanted and didn't contribute their own vision. I think Eric regardless that he wasn't as famous as Courtney contributed a lot and wasn't just a backing musician.

.andrea.'s picture

In my opinion also Patty and Melissa contributed a lot in the writing process...(also william patrick corg. but this is another story!!eheh)...Eric playing with Courtney it's a dream...so, let's see Courtney playing with this young guys!!! Time passes and people change... not all the band are like Sonic Youth.. look Smashing Pumpkins... damn... Billy have a totally new band.. and it's ok! you cannot say that d'arcy or james or jimmy didn't contribute to the writing process..they are all fundamentals!!!I wanna see Courtney playing her song... with or without Eric... and I also wanna see Eric playing, with or without Courtney...as Patty or Melissa!!!  

kymm's picture

what happened to all the "hole is a band" stuff from the 90s? FFS I WISH EVERYONE WOULD SHUT UP AND GO MAKE MUSIC!!!!

Black Kat's picture

Good points made here.  I kept getting my hopes up with mention of the album (I've said it before, but will say it again - remember last new year when there was talk of the release, but nothing happened?) and again I got hopes up with the more recent postings on the now-disappeared facebook page.  I'm beginning to lose faith in it ever seeing light of day.  Glad to see information on the shows, but there were 2 shows also in 2007 with no album.  I wonder about the long-term effects the drug abuse has had on her wellbeing and I've also unfortunately seen first hand what drugs can do to to people long-term.  As a fan (yes I still am, but losing patience) I prefer the objective, constructive discussion that you get on this site over the sycophantic rubbish which gets posted onto other places.  I also hate the abusive rubbish which gets posted, which is often misogynist in origin.

i see paris i see france ..... courtney we are waiting for you sooooo badlyyy

summer nights's picture

She says "MARCH, sorry to say" on her Twitter and isn't clear on a single for January 1... Mmmm wasn't very nice to keep putting up all that 010110 stuff w/o saying something a little sooner... But I suppose this isn't really a surprise. We'll see if March happens, if Hole happens (re: banter w/ Eric), if a album cover is created and how that bad press turns out. :~ Sorry Courts, I do enjoy you and love your music, but the info is never reliable and has been disappointing since that Women's Prison record/show back in 2005 so I'll believe it when I see it!
All the best and Happy New Year! -- Hope to see you in 2010.
Edit - She clarified no new single Jan 01/10 and said "We just liked the date". At least she said proper marketing will tell us when the single is coming out... Won't believe a word unless it comes on a glossy magazine page or subway ad with a label's stamp of approval.

Black Kat's picture

Thanks for the info SummerNights.  Yes I have to say that I was just thinking about the women's prison recording/show the other day; that was an excellent idea and such a shame that it didnt transpire.  I feel the same now that I'm at the point where I'll believe it when I see the actual CD in front of me, in my hands.  Wonder what the show will be like tonight.  I have to say that I find whatever she says unreliable; remember when she was talking about producing a film about her/Kurt?  I do wonder about her wellbeing and what the long-term effects of the drug abuse has been for her.

summer night's picture

lots of updates... web site and "art" (cover?) launch "around midnight"... pics of rehearsal... tho she also mentioned the lyrics for the song "Amen" not being final, so I dunno what that means or how fast one can record and mix a song before the CDs go to print. We'll see! Was pleasantly surprised to see her twitter page consisting mostly of Hole updates... and the pic of her in teh morning is cute! Happy new year everyone.
Edit - Yay, it happened! The site teaser launched with a mixed clip of the Nobody's Daughter intro... www.nobodysdaughter.com and there's a Facebook fan page that's link though there's no content just yet. Love the mixed Nobody's Daughter instrumental clip! When this sucker comes out I will blow up my iPod playing it so much!

WeepingWall's picture

a second New York Terminal 5 show was added.

Glinda's picture

I just got tickets to that one! I wasn't sure I would travel up to NYC to see her. But then I decided what the hell! I'm so excited!

Anonymous's picture

The show in Brussels is nearly 40 euros! Wtf? Our tickets to go to a FESTIVAL featuring Iggy Pop and the Stooges and Brian Jonestown Massacre were cheaper than that! Sonic Youth never charge more than 20 euros...wtf? Not going.

Mel's picture

Paris is even more expensive (45€/$62).

Glinda's picture

Well, I'm a Madonna fan so compared to her the tickets seem reasonable! The tickets for NY are $40 which is pretty standard for a well known band in a larger venue. They don't seem out of line with what other acts are charging.

Everything is more expensive in Europe because of the exchange rate. I'd love to visit the UK and Europe again but I can't afford your prices!

Anonymous's picture

The euro is worth more than the US dollar so that means concert tickets should be cheaper here. And generally they are....like I said...The Stooges...20 euros. Sonic Youth, 17 euros (usually). 45 euros is really expensive for here.

Glinda's picture

You can't compare Sonic Youth and the Stooges to Hole. They are more cult acts, not acts that have had million selling records and songs on the radio. I still think the prices are pretty average for bands on the same level as Hole. Check out the prices for bigger acts and I think you will find they are similar.

I found when I was in England prices were often the same in pounds or euros as dollars as far as the number. But that meant it was twice as much for me!

Anonymous's picture

They have to come to Minnesota!!!!! Or at the very least do a full U.S tour, because not all fans live in L.A, or NewYork

black catz's picture

Whats happened to the Nobodys Daughter site?  Just tried to access it and it looks like the domain is for sale or something.  By the way I think that the ticket prices are pretty reasonable in comparison to seeing major acts.  Not that I'm able to get to any of the dates in the UK; too far away to travel back same night to get to work next day!

Anonymous's picture

Hey, can anyone confirm any NEW tour dates for the US. The radio station here in Virginia was just talking about Hole and their tour. I was questioning it, because they only talk about tours near us. Someone let me know please. :]]]]]

Does anyone know what exactly the deal is with Europe cause I had tickets for Cologne and apparently that went to hell. Is there even a way to get the money back? aaaw Courtney baby I'm really upset.

Mel's picture

The french show is postponed (according to the gig promotor), the tickets are still valid for the new date or you can ask for a refund.

Anonymous's picture

wow mel you're amazing with the quick response. thank you but so does that mean everythings pushed back... sorry i'm kind of confused. So the Paris show is postponed? What was the whole 'legal issues' thing?

Mel's picture

It should be the same for other countries, I hope there will be an official news soon...

Daydreamer's picture

yea that would be nice... cause i kind of really need to know... I looked at the site for tickets for the Cologne show and it says the shows cancelled...so thats not particularly a good sign :~ but in any case thank you for keeping us all updated on what's going on with Courtney...even if she does end up canceling on me

According to some booking agents in Australia, Holes management is nearing end of negotiations to sign on for the 'Big Day Out" festival in Australia / New Zealand in Jan. They have also tentetivly booked side shows for Sydney, Melbourne and Auckland before the start and finnish of the festival. That means we are not going to get to see Hole till Jan / Feb 2011 in Australia unfortunately. The good news is Court loves Big Day out Festival and always has given awsome shows in Australia and on that particular festival.

Seanny-boi's picture

that would be awesome!!!It would make sense considering Hole have performed their last two albums at the Big Day Out! If they can do it for their latest masterpiece I think I might just die... Havent seen Hole perform since 1999 and would love to hear Courtney's voice again live!!!! Would make my Big Gay Out experience!

It's not 100% certain yet go tweet the Soundwave guy @iamnotshouting and demand they book Hole and that Hole shouldn't have to open for Limp Bizkit. I don't blame her for not wanting to open for Limp Bizkit his music is a joke Courtney is an established alternative artist who has been making records for 20 yrs and she shouldn't have to open for Limp. Ridiculous! Tweet that guy!
