Consider yourself lucky for getting floor tickets! My buddy and I tried buying right at 10am today, and the best we could get was way up in 214 :cry:


The boy said he had trouble buying online. Made many attempts before he was successful.

From personal experience, Tool shows are more enjoyable the farther you are from the stage. Light effects, videos, that sort of thing all look better.

Finally committed to Cake at Ommegang Brewery (in Cooperstown)!  Friday May 26.

 

Does anyone have any suggestions for attending a show there?  It looks like General Admission.  Additionally, it looks like I was too late to purchase the additional camping tickets for $15 each.  I guess we will probably just drive to a nearby state park and camp there?

 

Oh, also might do Metallica in Denver, they're playing at the Broncos' stadium in June.  Also will probably take my gal to Avett Brothers at Red Rocks!  (Moving to Colorado next week, but coming back to Rochester for Cake and Tool over Memorial Day weekend.)

I MIGHT go to that  Ommegang show; my cousin and I have talked about it. Of course, he has, like, a child or something. I've never been to a show there, but we did a tour of the place a couple years ago and it was very cool. If you eat in the taproom get the chicken and waffles, they're amazing.

Go to see George Clinton and the Parliament Funkadelic on Friday at the House of Blues in Myrtle Beach, SC. Tickets were only $20 each with the groove promo code. I'm excited. This will be the first show I've ever seen that wasn't metal or punk rock.

It was my fourth time seeing them (three with the Cavalera brothers). The new line up is very good as well.

We went to see Steve Winwood and his daughter Lilly in concert over the weekend.

 

Had A blast!

 

 

Forgot what a great musician/performer he is, and how upbeat and fun his shows are.

Love Winwood.  Went backstage when he toured with Traffic.  

 

Saw Billy Joel on Friday at he new Suntrust Park (Atlanta Braves new Stadium).  What a great show!  Still songs great.  Loved Chainsaw, his roadie, singing Highway to Hell.

So wanted to go to his show this weekend, but thought my son's birthday party was more important.  Saw Winwood open for Tom Petty at Darien Lake a fews ago and was blown away. Couldn't imagine what a full set was like!

 

Looking forward to the summer concerts:

 

G'N'R at New Era

The Who (whats left) at CMAC

U2 in Cleveland and Boston

Sammy Hagar and The Circle at Casino

 

Hopefully catch some of the multiple outdoor shows as well

Your age is showing....

 

I have the perfect t-shirt for you :ph34r:

 

It's been since the 90's that we went to see a live *famous* artist/band. Life and responsibility happened. Now that we are a little less encumbered by it all we feel the need to replenish those joys from our past.

 

Not sure who else we want to see. It has to be the right mix of music and atmosphere. Want it to be upbeat, positive and fun. The audience for us is as important as the performer.

 

Also take it you live near Atlanta, that region has some nice venues and gets a lot  of great acts. Good for you to take advantage.

We would love to go to Darien Lake for a show. Steve and Tom would be a perfect combo for us! 

 

Have you ever stayed at the campground and gone to a show?

We understand that to stay in the campground we have to buy all day park passes, which we don't want, plus concert tickets to see the show. It becomes very expensive fast with the park passes.

The Clash at the Exhibition Stadium in Toronto ( :sick:  ... worst concert venue ever) 35 years ago this summer.

 

Would love a do-over and I remember it as if it were yesterday.  Actually, I remember it more vividly than I remember yesterday.

Tomorrow night in Chapel Hill, NC a little band from Halifax, NS will be playing at an intimate venue (<200 capacity).

 

Sloan.  I'm way too old to be going out on a school night for these shows anymore, but I haven't seen them live since the late 90's... so off I'll go...... and suffer for it on Thursday.

 

funny you should be going to see Sloan...I took my wife and two sons (21 and 19 years old) last Thursday to see who are called the TransCanada Highwaymen... they consist of Chris Murphy lead singer of Sloan, Steven Page, the great voice from Barenaked Ladies, Moe berg from Pursuit Of Happiness )She's So Young and I'm An Adult Now) and Craig Northey from the awesome and underrated Odds (make You Made, It Falls Apart). Great show and highly recommended also going to see Carlos Santana, Foreigner, Burton Cummings band, ZZ Top and the Australian Pink Floyd Show at Casino Rama this summer. should be GREAT!!!

Hearing rumblings that Led Zep may play desert trip for their 50th anniversary . Apparently Plant turned down 14 million last time they were asked to play.

Plant's voice has got to be shot, right? He's gotta be unable to hit the notes at this point, no? Is there any other reason?

My early year concert slate has been completed:

Clapton at MSG

Blind Boys of Alabama - Corning Museum of Glass

Bela Fleck & Abigail Washburn - Corning

Buddy Guy at UB

 

Summer schedule thus far:

Tedeschi Trucks Band in Rochester

Boston in Syracuse

 

Taking my 13 year old to see Boston after taking the older two when Boston came to Big Flats, NY (Tags) two years ago. She will love it. 

Saw TTB last year at UB and they have a fantastic new live album out. I highly recommend. 

 

Edit: Just bought tickets to Tommy Emmanuel and David Grisman in Ithaca in November, and I forgot about Arturo Sandoval in Corning in September. 

Shaping up as a great year for shows!

Saw Gojira and Opeth last night. First time seeing Opeth live. Really, really good. Opeth is one of only bands I can think of that legitimately defies labels and genres.

Going to see these guys on Thursday:

 

 

Friend had an extra ticket and I know nothing about them besides the stuff I've listened to the last couple days. They're good, I need more punk in my life.
