My condolences...


Big Grin
I went with my nephew who had an extra ticket. He took his old uncle since he thinks I'm a super cool dude (smart boy). I thought it was a good concert and I don't mind the music. The crowd was into it and I'm a fan. Fun times!


My wife and I saw them a few years back, tremendous show. Unfortunately none of the dates this tour will work for us.

TXR was also great for Jerry's birthday. Phil gave a touching speech about Jerry. Let me know if you want a copy !

...in their day. Cool


David Crosby and Graham Nash can still kick it. They did an acoustic version (just the two of them singing, with Crosby playing an acoustic guitar) of Guinevere that brought the house down. It was amazing. Stephen Stills, unfortunately, is struggling. It appears that he is losing his hearing; thus, can't hear himself sing.

Overall, the three best songs of the night were Guinevere, Wooden Ships and Suite: Judy Blue Eyes.

Last month saw Seal at the Beacon in NYC with the wife and kids. Fun concert. Great voice.

Last week Coldplay in Jersey. Tremendous light show, lasers, technically well done. Good sound, strong energy in crowd. Enjoyed the show.
Train last night. Not among my favorite bands but they entertain and perform well, and engage the audience. My second time seeing them.
I caught the last show of Iron Maiden's 2012 tour in Houston last night. My first time to see them live and they were really, really good - playing for almost two hours in an extremely humid outdoor venue.

Opening act Coheed & Cambria were more of an interest to me but their sound mix was terrible and extremely LOUD. Too bad as it was so loud it has hard to distinguish one song from another.

Too bad you caught the 2nd month of the tour as Alice Cooper opened for the first month. The Maiden set list for this tour was frankly amazing. I loved the Seventh Son of a Seventh Son album and to see it showcased like it was brought me back to being 17 again.
I'm getting pimped into going to see Gotye tonight - he of the catchy/strange/possibly annoying song Somebody That I Used to Know. At least the free tickets include parking...

Up The Irons!

Gotta say whether you enjoy his music or not, if you ever get a chance to see him live you must do it. One of the most entertaining performers I've ever seen. Great music, fabulous band, great stories and interaction, and he always goes for about three hours. Fantastic show!
I attended opening night of this year's Rush tour in support of their new "Clockwork Angels" album. While technically not perfect, the show was amazing with a greatly revamped set-list from last year's "Time Machine" tour. The three-hour show (minus a 15 minute intermission) included an almost entirely new stage set-up and video segments. A strong recommendation for this one.
Eek WOW! I was not even aware that they had a tour engaged. Just checked their website for Mtl. Only extreme nose-bleed sections available Frown

I must get myself on an announcement list for the next go-around

Check out some of the message boards for the band (for example www.counterparts.com ) and you will find a fair number of fans looking to share a pair of tickets or have some to sell.
Was already set for Toby Keith this Sunday night (16th) but also decided this morning to spring for Elton John tonight in Tampa!!! Figured I need to see him live once in my life!
Seen Sir Elton several times and it is worth it. The Face to Face tours he did with Billy Joel were pretty amazing, but I guess those are history now...
I wasn't happy about going to see it. I figured it would just be 4 guys singing the Four Seasons' songs. They were far better than the Four Seasons, who I've seen in person 4 times, back in the day. Jersey Boys is a truly great musical.
While in Florence last week, we got an invite to the home of Gregorio Nardi, a classical pianist and grandson of a former mayor of Florence. After some apperativo, we sat and listed to him play a Rondo from one of the Beethovan sonatas, and then a few works by Schumann.

Finally saw Jersey Boys last night. If you were weaned on rock'n'roll in the '60s, you have to love it. I did.

Saw Jersey boys a couple years ago. Reminded me a bit of Beatlemania which I saw in the late 70's.

Last weekend saw Bruce Springsteen at Wrigley Field.

I also caught show #4 in Indianapolis on Thursday night, which was also very good. The thing to note is that all four shows have had different set lists, something almost unheard of for Rush.
Friday night saw Brian Setzer at the Hollywood Bowl. Great sounds with the backup of the Hollywood Bowl Orchestra. Good food and great wines.

One of the few expensive gigs worth every penny, for me.
While in Columbus, Ohio this week I caught a show by two bands I would describe as symphonic heavy metal - Nightwish and Kamelot.

I had never heard Kamelot before this show but was won over by their music and stage show. I look forward to seeing them again in the future.

It was my second time to see Nightwish, a band from Finland fronted by an operatic-style female singer (Annette Olson). In addition to the routine guitar/bass/drums instruments, Nightwish are also fairly keyboard intensive and of late have incorporated Troy Donockley on something akin to the bagpipes. Their bombastic orchestrations flavored with a Celtic flair and heavy metal riffs makes for some really interesting music. It's not for everyone but I love it.
On tap over the next month or so: Peter Gabriel, Neil Young and Crazy Horse, & Aussie Pink Floyd. Each likely accompanied by a bottle of quaffable red pre-show.
Last Saturday at the Hollywood Bowl: Go-Go's, Psychedelic Furs, and the Motels. (I missed the opening set by Bow Wow Wow.)
