We're seeing them Saturday night in Ottawa. Please tell me he played the old classics, and lots from Rust, and not so much the newer stuff?

it was more of a crazy horse show than a neil show. lots of new material, lots of improvisation and going off track for a while. Very electric, little to no acoustic other than for a few new songs. More Arc than Rust.

Got a few old classics, but still - it was a crazy horse show, not neil young show.

as a plus, he did start the show by having everyone stand for the national anthem. probably the only time i'll get to do that at the ACC this year.

We have a tradition of starting the holiday season with a jazz Christmas concert every year, and luckily the show we like has a tradition of starting their holiday tour in Austin the last few years. Just got back from this year's version and it was great as always - Peter White, Rick Braun and Mindy Abair. Always gets us in the spirit early.

I went to see them last night Bman. While you will be happy to know he played Powderfinger, the only other Rust song was the obvious Hey, Hey, My, My closer. He does play Needle & Damage Done and Cinnamon Girl. A couple from Ragged Glory including a fun version of Fucking Up. Overall...not bad.

Oh btw, don't be late. Patti Smith is the opening act, which I was not aware of before the show. Cool

Leonard Cohen

Un-freaking-believable show. Watching him perform Hallelujah literally sent chills up my spine.

May we all be as spry and utterly charming when we are 78 years old.

McCartney. Went in with guarded expectations, and came out with mind blown. The man was amazing. He knows his voice ain't what it used to be but didn't hold back at all on any of the songs, just went for it. Way better than expected. And this was the second of two back to back nights!


Punch it , Chewie!

Neil Young was great - wild and crazy metal guitar, not all of it recognizable as any particular tune, for at least a third of the show. I could have lived without the 5 minutes of Neil playing nothing but screetching feedback in the middle of the show, but otherwise I enjoyed it immensely.

And 3 days later I found myself in the Air Canada Centre in Toronto, again on free tickets thanks to my wonderful daughter, watching Cheap Trick and Aerosmith. Fell into a 70s time warp for a few hours, especially with Cheap Trick who played all the hits and were great fun. Icing on the cake was that I was there with my kids. Had the foresight years ago to ensure that they understood and appreciated the delights of classic stadium rock. And ended up in a section ful of drunken chicas dancing their brains out in their seats, just like back in the day. A good time was had by all!!! Banana

They played here during F1 weekend and I thought about pulling the trigger on tickets to see Cheap Trick (pass on Aerosmith) but didn't. Sounds like I should have. Bang

I used the term time warp because Cheap Trick were their old selves, boppin' all over the stage, cracking jokes, making faces, playing all the old hits adding extra choruses at the end just for fun. The crowd loved them - they spent 3 minutes on stage after the last song just soaking up the love. They got lots from me and the kids.

Not my favorite band or style of music, but I'll be seeing Train for the 3rd time tomorrow. My other half won tickets for free.

With all due respect to his greatness, influence and longevity, Buddy is really more of an "entertainer" than guitar player these days. Saw him at his club (for the 2nd time) a few years ago and also at the Eric Clapton Crossroads Festival in 2007. He is certainly still fun to watch, but they playing chops are a shadow of what they once were. I want to say it was the mid 90's when I saw him the first time. Just an observation; I'm not trying to disrespect the man by any means.

Flogging Molly last night at the Aragon Ballroom. They kicked major ass. The set was completely different than when we saw them a year ago, with many older songs pulled out. It was an extremely high energy set. One of the opening acts, Skinny Lister was very enterrtaining.

Dave King of FM reminds me of Dave Grohl in that those two guys onstage give the impression that they are having more fun than anyone else in the building. Bravo!

You and I are kindred spirits when it comes to these guys. They put on a fabulous show and I agree King is having just as much fun, if not more, than we are.

Haven't been to anything lately, but just looked at my ticket stack and am pleased to report we have Bob Schneider, Bobby Caldwell, Diana Krall and Clapton coming up over the next couple months so the calendar is looking better soon!

Saw Bobby Caldwell a couple weeks ago and forgot to post about it. Man that dude has some pipes - put on a great show.

Going to the Grand Am race at Circuit of the Americas this weekend and just learned Black Joe Lewis and the Honeybears will be playing at the amphitheater on race day. Cool
