Saw U2's, "Joshua Tree" tour a few weeks ago in Chicago. Bono and the band still have it. We were all close to the stage.

I was super young when the album came out but who doesn't know all those songs. 

My friend got tickets in  Boston but sadly sold them and I'm bummed. Would have gone in a heartbeat again!

Amazing show! 

I would have like to see this but, in Philadelphia, it's at the football stadium.  I would have gone if it was at an arena.

That was my first major concert back in 1987 (88?), and it was amazing.  Glad to hear they are still good live.

I saw Queen w/Adam Lambert last night.  Adam definitely has the right voice and attitude to front the band and as someone who enjoyed him on American Idol, it  was nice to see him singing with some legends.  I couldn't stop wondering what it must be like to be fronting a small band one day, then a few years later, after a silly, competition based reality show, you're on tour with freakin' Queen.  It must be so surreal for him.    I wrote on FB during a solo that here I sat listening to a 70+ year old man bring down the house with a guitar battle and another one of the same age running around the stage tearing up the guitar and I had to keep sitting down because my back hurt!  lol!

All in all, a very impressive show and a great night!

Queen was my first concert back in 1977 and my favorite band as a kid.  I'd be much more excited about Lambert, May and Taylor as a group if they were actually producing new material rather than doing what feels to me to be a Queen tribute band.  Freddie's gone.  Move forward.

There are two concerts I really remember. The first was Ray Charles back in the eighties. He put on an awesome show. But as my friend and I walked out, we felt disappointed that it was so short. 

Then I looked at my watch and realized he had played for almost two hours. Time flies. . . 

The other great concert was when U2 performed the US premier of  All That You Can't Leave Behind. I was on business travel staying at a hotel with a view right on Times Square. I hear this "THUMP, THUMP, THUMP". I look out the window and realize that I am looking down on the old rooftop stage for MTV and there is a band getting ready to perform. I turn on MTV and Total Request Live is talking about U2 premiering their new album. So I looked out the window and saw this across the street.

I love that album.

I've been to a few concerts in my life:

Duran Duran - my first concert

Then come my boy band days:

Hanson (3 times)

Backstreet  Boys

98 Degrees

Goo Goo Dolls

Then my after high school days:

Allman Brothers

Phish

Jimmy Eat World

Incubus

Rusted Root

Mumford and Sons

Tonight was a new one for me:

Tony Bennett

A friend and her mom had an extra ticket so I tagged along for a rare night out without kids or spouse. It was a cool setting - outside at The Biltmore/ mountains all around. He started at 7:45 and ended at 9:15. I will say that for 91 he can still croon! At one point he forgot the lyrics to a song and then he sang the same song twice. But, hey. He's 91! Tickets were supposedly $80.00 a pop but my friends mom would only take $20.00 from me. I'd be kinda disappointed if I had paid full price.

Dire Straits 1979 Communique tour at the Ocean State Theatre (small venue), Providence, RI.   Tickets were a whopping $12.

Tom Petty, The Waiting tour, Providence

Ted Nugent, Wango Tango tour, Providence

Pat Benatar, Providence, circa 1982 (most boring concert of my life).  Billy Squier opened.

Dire Straits again, Alchemy tour, Providence (a crass, commercialized parody compared to the lean, serious band I saw in '79)

Katrina and the Waves, Providence

Modern English, Providence

Depeche Mode, Music For the Masses tour, Madison Square Garden

Siouxsie and the Banshees, Peepshow Tour, Radio City Music Hall

The Cure, Disintegration tour, Meadowlands (Love and Rockets opened)

Depeche Mode, Violator tour, Madison Square Garden again (the best of the arena concerts I've seen)

Madonna, Vogue tour, Meadowlands

Pink Floyd, A Momentary Lapse of Reason tour, Yankee Stadium

U2 at Hartford, Connecticut (second most boring concert ever -- preachy Bono, no "New Year's Day" and only ONE pre-Rattle and Hum song, "Gloria.")

The B-52s

I would go to many, many more concerts today, especially since bands of my youth are still out there doing smaller venues, but I'm priced out.  Ironically, I could have seen them at the height of their fame and talent for $15; now, in their twilight years, it costs $100-$200/ticket to see a performance that is but a shadow of what it used to be.    I refuse to pay it, not only because it's too rich a luxury for my pocketbook,  but because these shows quickly devolve into audience singalongs and cell-phone photo shoots.   I wouldn't relish paying that kind of money to listen to some tone-deaf loudmouth in front of me drowning out the artist while blocking my view with an upheld cellphone.

We were just talking about Steely Dan and then Walter Becker dies today. So many of my musical icons dying over the last year or two really reminds one of your own age and mortality. These people aren't that much older than me. Heavy sigh.

This show was last weekend and it did not disappoint. It was, by far, the best Kenny Chesney show I've ever been to.  I don't have the words to describe the vibe, the performance, or anything. It was just so amazing. Gilette Stadium, on the other hand, is a hot mess to get into and out of.

I cannot wait to see him there in 2018!

I know a guy who goes to see Robert Plant whenever he swings through these parts.   He's always very satisfied by the show.

Seeing Trace Adkins tonight with my dad. He always put on country radio when I was growing up in the 90's/00's (that makes me feel old and I'm not even 30!), so, artists like Trace are part of me and my childhood. :)

I am so jealous!!  He's not coming to my area on this tour, but I saw he was going to the Beacon in NYC on Valentine's Day...which, unfortunately, is a Wednesday.  If it had been a weekend, I'd have made the trip - love the Beacon and love Robert!! 

Enjoy the show!!

Thanks you guys.  I've seen Robert quite a few times and am always left breathless.  He's just my thing....you know. I actually became a fan as an adult and I'm not sure why he just appeals to me. You can just feel the good energy coming from him on stage.  He's always so delightful and sexy!

I really like Trace Adkins too. He has that great distinctive voice.  How was the show Friday night, ShortyMac?

I've heard of the Beacon and I think it is a similar venue to the one he's coming to in Raleigh.  Sort of like Constitution Hall in DC.  I've seen him there before too.  I'll have to check the seat capacity to confirm.  What I like is that it's smaller and more intimate, which is great, imo.  I think the last night he was at this venue, it was a weeknight, but, I went anyway.  It wasn't a super late night, but, I am glad that this time, it's on a Friday night.  This time, more than one glass of champagne for me!

Honestly, it was just 'good.' Not horrible, not awesome. The crowd kinda sucked and Trace was pretty quiet and stiff for a Friday night and seemed to me like he was going through the motions a bit. But he's 55, so, I cut him a break. lol His songs are good and fun, don't get me wrong, but his set, for me, left something to be desired. Only 17 songs in 80 minutes (he's done sets of 19/20 recently). It was all singles except for the second song, a Don Williams cover (because he just died), and the encore. I was disappointed that he only did one song from his new album. I know most people don't want to hear a bunch of new stuff, but I really like the new album and would've enjoyed another song or two, along with two or three more deep cuts instead of single after single. But he has a big catalog now and wants to attract younger attendees like me, too, so, he's going to play singles he's released in more recent years.

Having said all this, overall, it was still a good show, I had fun, and Trace's vocals and performance from a music standpoint were fine. I would see him again. 3.5/5.

It's tough to get into an upbeat mode today, after such a horrible thing happening at the concert in Vegas, but, one of my favorite songs is a duet that Trace did with Blake Shelton.  It used to make me laugh a lot.

Since I posted my all too brief list this summer, I've seen two more acts:

Green Day--music was good, though the venue wasn't so hot.  Everyone stood the whole time, I'm 5 feet tall, and I could only get a flashing glance at the stage once in a while.  And the monitors were both tiny and old.

Paul McCartney--great show.  Yes, his voice was creaky on some songs, but by and large, he was able to do a good job on most.  He performed for 3 hours straight without a break, in an incredibly hot arena, and covered almost 40 songs. And....the stage scaffolding caught on fire due to the pyrotechnics in Live and Let Die!  So, doubly, memorable :) 

 It has taken me 43 years, but I have now seen 3 of the 4 Beatles, (John being the obvious exception).  I am so glad that I splurged on the tickets--especially since the news of Tom Petty's passing.  No way of telling what will be the last tour for someone.

I have always wanted to see Paul McCartney and just haven't.  I'm not sure if I'll get the opportunity, again.  Maybe.   I've heard that he plays for a really long time.  That's amazing. 

I had just starting thinking that I would get back into seeing more concerts, when the Vegas incident occurred.  Now, I'm hesitant again.  I just don't feel comfortable, the way I used to feel.  I feel for the artists who make their living performing on stage. It has to be unnerving.

I've seen Sir Paul live numerous times and he plays continuously for over three hours, and he's showing no signs of slowing down as I believe he's touring now.  Hopefully you'll get the chance.

My steps are slippery, I might fall down and break my neck. It doesn't stop me going downstairs, though. You could argue that I need to go downstairs, but I don't need to go to a concert. Yes, but I feel the principle is the same. People die from a hundred different things every day. I'd rather go out and live my life and not hide away. Basically, I refuse to live in fear.

I'm trying to look at it that way.  Some of my favorite memories are attending concerts, seeing my favorite artists and enjoying myself with friends.  It's a little like flying.  There's fear, but, also such benefits.

Yeah, I know it can be hard. I don't always follow my own advice. But think of the benefits! So many great bands to see. Sticking it to the idiots who don't want you to have fun. Gathering all sorts of stories about fun happenings at gigs. It's good stuff. :)

Same here. I never thought to see TP live until this year, and would have but by the time I decided on it, the show was already sold out.

Also missed U2+Beck because I didn't want to deal with nosebleed seats in a football stadium.

Busy year for me and my wife, though: Bon Jovi, Huey Lewis, Garth+Trisha (last night), with Billy Joel and Lady Gaga still to come.

Bon Jovi is on my to do list of shows to see.  It's one of the biggies that I haven't seen yet.

  I did see U2 in NY awhile ago.  My boyfriend at the time and I flew to NY to see them.  We waited most of the day to get inside the heart (near stage section) and it was awesome.  If my finger nails were longer, I could have touched Bono and the Edge, as they walked around the heart area.  Here's a link.  It was a great show.  

http://www.u2gigs.com/show1106.html

I saw Garth in concert too, but, I was so far back, that it was not as enjoyable.  Wish I could see him up close.  I saw Trisha too, many years ago when she first got started. 

I've seen Billy Joel as well.  LOVE this guy. His music touches my heart.  Very good performer.

I've never seen Huey or Lady GaGa.  I'm not sure that I will.  I bet they are good shows though.

Had to go out to a really sketchy part of Brooklyn but Kitten and/or Sizzy Rocket are great to see live if you get the chance. They both still have a really... unpolished vibe. It's not really an artistic movement or a political statement. Just people who are still outside of the mainstream enough to do what they fucking want. Sizzy's got the sex, drugs, and rock and roll vibe but in more of a pop package. She's a mashup of a bunch of different people but in a way that feels a lot more genuine than her commercial counterparts and definitely less about catering to the male gaze. She's really fun. Chloe, the lead singer of Kitten is just a powerhouse. No fear and an amazingly energetic dancer. I'm not totally sold on her new look. I feel like she was channeling more of an old school rock vibe before (kind of a rock hippie vibe) and she's in a similar 60's/70's era now but in more of a futuristic way.

I cannot wait to see him there in 2018!

I "took" my mom to see Neil Diamond for her birthday last year. It was at the same venue we saw him at when I was a kid. I'm glad she finally took me up my offer to "take" her to a concert since he retired.

In 2018

I am attempting to get Elton John tickets on Friday - he's been on my 'to see' list for over a decade. I'll go alone if I have to

I'll be seeing Kenny Chesney at Mercedes Benz and maybe PHL and TN depending on friends. As much as I'd love to go back to Boston the issue of money and what a hot mess Gillette Stadium is making it a pass. But I can see him 3 times for less than 1 trip to Boston would cost.

I "took" my mom to see Neil Diamond for her birthday last year. It was at the same venue we saw him at when I was a kid. I'm glad she finally took me up my offer to "take" her to a concert since he retired.

I saw Neil once and it was great. But, I grew up with him and loved his music.  It was such a trip down memory lane, as it was a group of girlfriends who went.  

I'm excited for you regarding the Elton John concert.  I have seen in him concert many times, but, it's been a while ago.  It may be different now, that he's older.  But, I will tell you that there are just some performers who PUT IT ALL OUT there and Elton was one to do that.  He and Rod Stewart, Rolling Stones and a few more really pour their heart into their performances.  We stood in the rain and mud for one Elton show and he did not disappoint.  He saw what we went through and he really make the show special.  He sang and played his heart out.  His shows are worth every penny and more, imo.  

I hope you have a great time and it's as good as it used to be.

RIP, Neil.

He's not dead! He just retired from touring due to his Parkinson's diagnosis. 

I really hope I can land Elton John tickets. I always wanted to see him in a head-to-head tour with Billy Joel but it wasn't meant to be.
