The last concert I went to was Pearl Jam...origonally the concert had sold out but the day of the concert they released 300 tickets...we were told that there might be an obstructed view but we took the tickets anyways...our seats were in row 29 but when we got there we realized they had removed the first 20 rows and we were in the 9th row and there was no obstructed view...I had a great time and loved every minute
Ahh yes and it is now almost upon us 2010 summer concerts..woohoo.. I have been feeling very deprived this winter not enough concerts to keep my mojo up with one exception I went to see U2 on the 360 tour they were awsome of course second time I have seen them but the highlight for me was MUSE !!!!! OMG I about wet my pants when I found out they were the opening band (Should have been a headling tour for them) I know that they are not as well known on this side of the pond as a matter of fact in all my journeys to Europe and elswhere I have never been able to time it to catch them live. Well it was worth the wait !!!! MUSE ROCKS I am grateful to a cat on here who introduced them to me because they have become 1 of my favorite bands, even though he turned out to be a bit of a @@@@ but he is now forgivin only because it lead to one of my best musical expieriences EVER!!!!So if you find the stars aligning for you and MUSE comes to your neck of the woods GO SEE THIS BAND you will not regret it! Stay breezy and keep ROCKIN :)
at this huge fountain/park in my city called the point the black eyed peas and tim mcgraw played it was sick the music was so good i didnt realize i was standing up for like 3 hours straight :) oh yeah this was in the summer
I last saw the Red Hot Chili Peppers with the Foo Fighters at U of Illinois in 00'. Of regional bands I saw Duke Tumatoe and the Power Trio in 07' & 08' and for those who don't know who he is, he's a blues/rocker and one of the founding members of REO Speedwagon before they *made* big.
The last concert I went to was Mindless Self Indulgence, it was brilliant. I've also seen, Korn, Metallica, 30 Seconds To Mars and have been to a few festivals.
Tomorrow night I'm going to see Mika (Abit diff from the other bands! lol) for my friends birthday.. should be a laugh
I hadn't been to a concert in MANY years, but last week, I took my 15 year old daughter to see Chris Brown for her birthday. We had an ABSOLUTE blast, I had forgotten how nice live music was and the show was superb. For young performers, Chris and some of the others put on a fabulous show. I am definitely going to start seeing live performances again soon. :-)
Just saw Rush on 6/20/07 great show 3 hours of live music with no opening band under the wide open sky..yummy last month saw Type O Negative at a club Still rockin. Will be seeing Allman Brothers again in Aug. and DMB, and Def Leopard,Styxx, Foriegner have seen all of them multiple times.Oh yes musn't forget wide spread panic twice in April they always open the season here on 4/20 and 4/21 every year awesome jam band. Firehouse, next week at downtown live (gotta get the big hair fix..lol) and Warrant next month.... Both free shows hell ya! Show most anxiously anticipating The Police,(If anyones seen this 2007 tour yet please drop me a line and give me the 411. I will travel for this show if they don't stop here. I saw them at the Orange Bowl in the 80's when I was very young can't wait to see them as an adult. Over the years I have been very very lucky to have seen lots and lots of shows. Pink Floyd, Jimmy Paige, Black Crows, Tom Petty, Green Day, U2 (First North American tour, outstanding show) Kiss( everyone should see at least one Kiss show in their lifetime, theres nothing like it), Aerosmith both seperately and together, Eagles, ZZ top, Skynard, Duran Duran ( dont laugh), Queensryche, Rob Zombie, Korn, Tool, Ozzy(ozzfest) Clutch, Lenny Kravitz, Motley Crue with and without Tommy, much better with ..lol Cinderella, Ted Nugent,Ratt, Poisen, Metallica, G-n-R, Kid Rock, Heart, Journey,Stained, Disturbed,Fleetwood Mac,Nickleback 2x's in the last couple of years, Rolling Stones etc. etc. etc.. Okay in case you haven't guessed I am a Music Maniac and this list could go on for days. I would be happy going to a concert every day of the week there is nothing absolutly nothing like going to a live show be it in a stadium,outdoor pavillion or a bar.Music especially Live is just such a beautiful thing it touches my soul and what a gift that is to recieve!!!! Glad I found this thread, thanks for starting it I will keep this one tagged as a favorite ;) it Rocks!!!!
