YES.

There was a great quote recently in an interview with Mike Mills regarding REM's split and the chance of a farewell tour:

Quote:
They didn't do a victory-lap last tour because it would be "maudlin and manipulative," says Mills. "It would also feel very mercenary, like, 'Everybody buy a ticket because you're not going to see us again!' That's kind of creepy; that's not the way we do things."

Obviously a different band and a very different situation, but I'd be very surprised if Sonic Youth didn't feel the same way about a farewell tour.

Which do you prefer:

1- No more shows ever
2- No more shows for a few more years
3- Farewell tour by themselves
4- Lolopallooza as farewell tour
5- They stick together and keep up the album/tour every two years or so schedule

Disagree. That last show was crap. Something was off, or something was missing. But I was disappointed as hell by the farewell show and I would like to see them say goodbye in a better way. I can't speak for the tour as a whole but that last show was a let down.

For incredibly selfish reasons I would love to see a farewell show, but don't really expect it to happen. I've been listening to SY since I was 13 (1997) and only got to see them one time on the Rather Ripped tour. They played Teenage Riot as the opener and followed with almost all RR material. Would be cool to see them play songs spanning some of their older stuff. Again, don't expect it to happen, but I'd be willing to travel great distances to see it.

I can't say I disagree! It would be much more exciting for it to seem like they are done, and then at no fun fest or something they are just there, unannounced or announced very close to the actual date, and play an amazing concert, and still no one would know their plans after that. : )

I don't know that I'd want to go to a Sonic Youth farewell show/tour. I suspect it'd bring out all the morons who want to be able to say they were there for SY's farewell but who don't actually give a shit about the band or the music and who would just spoil the event for those who do.

My experience at the London NYE show a couple of year's back was spoiled by that sort of people, and it's ruined my memory of the whole thing.

That said, if my final SY live experience could be guaranteed to be a good one, and I could have a positive memory to go out on, well I'd be there like a shot.
