Jamie Lee Curtis Calls For Matinee Concerts and I Couldn’t Agree More




If I’ve said it once I’ve said it thousand times, GenX and Millenials are tired and we need a concert that can get us home and in bed by dinner….early dinner

Jamie Lee Curtis, the Hollywood icon and scream queen of the Halloween franchise, recently called for matinee rock shows so she can see Coldplay at 1PM.

The reason being,  Curtis goes to bed early, around 7PM, as she told the Today show.  With that schedule, she’s unable to catch nighttime music gigs that often would be just getting started as she’s going to sleep.


“Why are there no matinees?” Curtis asked Today‘s Savannah Guthrie and Hoda Kotb, per Stereogum.

“I love the morning,” the actress said, so she’s “challenging musicians to do concerts during the day.”

“For instance, I love Coldplay,” Curtis continued. “I would love to go see Coldplay.”

The problem is, “I’m not gonna go see Coldplay if they start their show at nine o’clock and there’s an opening act,” she added. “I want to hear Coldplay at 1PM. I think if we filled a stadium with people who want to see matinee of Coldplay, I think we would start a trend.”

Do you agree with Curtis about matinee shows? There are pro’s and cons for each but lets think about for. Comedians do an early show and a late show if their tour is poppin, why not give it a whirl for us oldies but goodies. Yes, there are festivals but think about how they are scheduled, the smaller bands first. 

As we know, bands make the most money on tour, and with the skyrocketing cost of touring, why not double down? 

Clearly I am speaking selfishly, and this post is all about how m much I agree with Jaime and I never thought I would be this person. Alas, here we are.
