Jamie Lee Curtis Says Musicians Should do ‘Matinee Concerts’ So She Can Go to Bed Earlier

She wants to attend a Coldplay gig at 1 pm.

Jamie Lee Curtis is an American actress, producer, children’s author, and activist. She first became prominent with her portrayal of Lt. Barbara Duran on the ABC sitcom Operation Petticoat.

Jamie is famously known for playing the character Laurie Strode in the Halloween films franchise. Her other notable projects include True Lies, Freaky Friday, Trading Places, My Girl, A Fish Called Wanda, Knives Out, Anything But Love, Scream Queens, and You Again.

The actress received several awards during her acting career, including a Golden Globe Award, People’s Choice Award, BAFTA Award, and a nomination for Primetime Emmy Award.

Recently, the Freaky Friday alum spoke to The Hollywood Reporter at the Independent Spirit Awards on Saturday, March 4, and called on her favorite musicians, including Coldplay, U2, and Bruce Springsteen, to do concerts during the day so can go to bed by 7:30 pm.

“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?” she said.

“Bruce Springsteen, do a f***ing 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!” she added.

“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.” 

The Knives Out star revealed she had been invited to attend the Oscars nominees’ private dinner this week. However, the dinner won’t start before 7:30 pm, and the food will come until much later, so she declined the invite.

“Now you might say, “Jamie, you’re nominated for an Academy Award, you’re going to be in the room with only nominees for the Academy Award, and I have declined.” Why? Because mommy goes to bed early,” she told the outlet.

Speaking with Today about the dinner, Jamie said that it would have to start at 5 pm if she was to attend it.

“Here’s the thing, you see there’s a nominees’ lunch which was fantastic because it was lunch time and we were all there, we were all dressed up.”

“They took that big class picture of everyone, it was thrilling! If that had been at night, I would have gone, but it would have been arduous to me because I’m just that girl.”

Curtis added that artists should do matinee shows so people who sleep early would also be able to attend their gigs.

“Why are there no matinees? For instance, I love Coldplay. I would love to go see Coldplay,” she questioned.

“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. I want to hear Coldplay at 1 p.m. I think if we filled a stadium with people who want to see matinee of Coldplay, I think we would start a trend.”
