Hey, ik zag net je post van twee maanden geleden over Wu-Tang Clan en The Fray uit 2007. Beide shows waren in de grote zaal van Paradiso.

Hi. "I Can Take or Leave Your Loving" (on the Herman's Hermits setlists) was originally recorded by The Foundations; are you able to do a bulk edit to correct this? It's featured on 36 of their setlists and I didn't fancy editing each setlist one by one :)

In follow up to your incorrect decision on changing the 5/15/2010 Big Star concert to Big Star’s Third, here’s definitive proof from THE BAND that this was indeed a Big Star concert:

"For our last performance as Big Star, Jon, Ken and I had some very good friends join us to celebrate the music and lives of Alex, Andy and Chris on May 15, 2010. The performances really tell the story of what happened and how we all felt about that evening at Memphis' Levitt Shell. The idea of trying to release the show in its entirety was overwhelming in the sense of time and effort needed for all performance clearances. So I thought, first artist first: John Davis was the first of many wonderful guest artists to join us on stage. He wailed on three songs: "In The Street," "Don't Lie To Me" and "When My Baby's Beside Me." These were just the right amount songs (and time) for an EP release. So with mastering engineer Larry Nix and Big Star's engineer, John Fry, and our Neumann cutting lathe all residing in the Ardent Studios building how could we not cut vinyl?

"We hope to release more of the show down the road. Thank you."

You might enjoy seeing this poster below. We already have this show recorded here, but it's the first time I've ever seen a poster for it:


Hi Dirk,

I've seen you've updated https://www.setlist.fm/setlist/frank-turner/2020/private-venue-london-england-7b862e8c.html to now that Jess Guise has her own artist page (https://www.setlist.fm/setlists/jess-guise-63f496c3.html).

Is there an easy way to get all of the Guise setlists (https://www.setlist.fm/setlists/guise-5bf4afdc.html) updated to be listed for Jess as so far all of them have just been her playing solo (as discussed as part of the Frank Turner setlist you modified)


It turns out that the section of the guidelines I was talking about is still there, I just couldn't find it!

"Note that the same additional information for all shows of the day is not a valid identifier. So always be sure to note which show was played at what time of the day."

I hope this makes sense?

Thanks for getting back to me, I have seen your new edit just now.

I didn't follow your original source link. Online sources can go offline or move to new URLs. We should try to summarise any found information information in a structured and consistent fashion on our database.

Unfortunately, "@Info[two shows]" isn't really good enough. You should differentiate between which is which. I like to imagine it as a brand new user searching for a show they remember attending 30 years ago: all known information should be as obvious and easy to them to see.

I think that there used to be a section in the guidelines about differentiating between multiple shows on a single day with an @Info tag - it looks like it has been removed in preparation of the new set times feature. I'll post in the forum to check with Michi about what to do in cases when we don't always have information of doors and stage times - hopefully this can be added to the guidelines before the set times feature goes fully live.

I've just noticed that you've added two setlists for The Posies at the same venue on the same date. I'm not sure if they are duplicates or early show/late show. Please could you edit accordingly?


If you want to say something to me, ask someone else to do it because i don't respect you.

Dag Dirk,

zou je de naam van dirk. kunnen veranderen naar DIRK. (in caps dus). De band veranderde onlangs de schrijfwijze en dat moet hier in het systeem nog aangepast worden.



En mauvais anglais puis en bon français.

Hello Dirk

I am sorry if I created a duplicate for a concert hall or for a concert itself.
It’s totally involuntary of me.

With all the information I put on the site, will you excuse me one mistake or other?

I don’t think I received an automatic warning from the site.
Previously, I have already received warnings warning me of a possible duplicate.
In these cases, I either check what is appropriate and adjust the information or, if it is not appropriate to what was intended, I do not put anything at all.

If for the concert of Philip Catherine and Larry Coryell or Larry Coryell and Philip Catherine or Philip Catherine or simply Larry Coryell (you have to see in which denomination it was imported on the site), I had the information, I would have simply added my presence to this concert.

As for the rooms of Ancienne Belgique, I know perfectly well that there are 2.
The main and that café concert on the floor. I attended many concerts below and another above (Quest).

If I made a double for the room, you’ll excuse me.
There must have been some sort of squeak, that I couldn’t find the name of the concert hall that matched the concert in question.

You’re also asking me not to put the exact address of the concert hall.
But if I did it, it was for your own sake.
For the concerts I attended in the concert hall «Ancienne Maison de la Presse», you explicitly asked me where it was. I told you about that.
It is only for this reason that I put the precise address so that you can verify for yourself the existence of a concert hall at the place I indicate.
I guess you don’t know either.
This thought you’d save yourself some work.

Now you’re asking me not to …

It’s up to you.

Have a good weekend.


Bonjour Dirk

Je suis bien désolé si j’ai créé un doublon pour une salle de concert ou pour un concert lui-même.
C’est totalement involontaire de ma part.

Avec la masse d’informations que j’ai mise sur le site, tu m’excuseras une erreur ou l’autre ?

Je ne pense pas avoir reçu un avertissement automatique de la part du site.
Précédemment, j’ai déjà reçu des avertissements me mettant en garde d’un éventuel doublon.
Dans ces cas là, soit je vérifie ce qui convient et ajuste les informations soit, si cela ne convient pas à ce que comptais mettre, je ne mets rien du tout.

Si pour le concert de Philip Catherine et Larry Coryell ou Larry Coryell et Philip Catherine ou Philip Catherine ou encore simplement Larry Coryell (il faut voir dans quelle dénomination il a été importé sur le site), j’avais eu l’information, j’aurais simplement ajouté ma présence à ce concert.

Quant aux salles de l’Ancienne Belgique, je sais parfaitement qu’il y en a 2.
La principale et celle que café concert à l’étage. J’ai assisté à de nombreux concerts en dessous et à un autre au-dessus (Quest).

Si j’ai fait un doublon pour la salle tu m’en excuseras.
C’est qu’il a dû y avoir un couac quelconque, que je n’ai pas trouvé la dénomination de la salle de concert qui correspondait au concert en question.

Tu me demandes aussi de ne pas mettre l’adresse exacte de la salle de concert.
Mais si je l’ai fait, c’est à ton intention personnelle.
Pour les concerts auxquels j’ai assistés dans la salle de concert « Ancienne Maison de la Presse », tu m’as explicitement demandé où elle se trouvait. Je t’ai répondu à ce sujet.
C’est uniquement pour cette raison que j’ai mis l’adresse précise afin que tu puisses vérifier par toi-même de l’existence d’une salle de concert à l’endroit que j’indique. Je crois bien deviner que tu ne connais aucune des deux.
Ceci pensant t’épargner un peu de travail.

Maintenant tu me demandes de ne pas le faire …

C'est comme tu veux.

Bonne fin de semaine.


You commented on my profile regarding two Yo La Tengo shows listed for Oct 5, 1991- my source for all setlists pre-2005 is sunsquashed:

hi. are you able to delete the venue "Totara Street, Tauranga, New Zealand" from the database. the correct venue is "Totara Street, Mount Maunganui, New Zealand". It's confusing people when they upload setlists and shouldn't have been created. I've edited the three setlists that had the incorrect venue, so that now there are no setlists associated with the latter

Dag Dirk,

zou je de naam van Black Leather Jacquet kunnen veranderen naar Black Leather Jacket. Dat staat al een tijdje fout in het systeem, maar ik kan het zelf niet aanpassen.


Most of the recents gigs I added are from near were I live (in the Basque Country), and are done due to an online movement (mostly in Instagram/YouTube). Many artists play live, streaming it, and there are a lot that I can't give any link cause they uploaded into instagram stories.
In the other hand, with most known/famous bands, I usually put the YouTube/whatever link to show that it happened. If there are some misunderstandings, I'm sorry.

Thank you for the clarification. You may want to set up world wide venues that are named for the specific festival. That way, artists can still stream their individual sets and use the Private Venue classification, while "Human to Human 2020" or "One World: Together At Home 2020" would be venues not linked to a specific location. Keep up the great work!


This set needs to be linked to the One World: Together At Home 2020 festival. If you are not the person to contact about this, please let me know who can help. Thanks so much.


Perhaps there are language issues in our communication. I am adding artists that are not performing in the US, Canada, France etc. Do you not want me to notify the moderators about these artists? I thought that was how they could be added to the festival. Would you prefer I notify you? Or not add them at this time. Please clarify and I would appreciate you adjust your tone. I am not trying to disrupt anything. Really.

That's terrific, the non US venues also added. I will keep this in mind going forward. Private Venue at this stage is usually the artists' homes. Often the city can be figured out from their Facebook page.

If you could do the same for the Human to Human online festival that took place last week:


Thanks so much!

Oké merci om te laten weten. Noemie en Alex waren de enige die ik niet terugvond op websites als vi.be . Ik ben nog niet echt thuis in het maken van artiesten & toevoegen van albums op musicbrainz. Ik laat dat liever over aan experten. Merci voor uw begrip.
