Evan,
I was at that show on Saturday too. It was a great concert, and the set list was, as Lars said, "a Saturday night ear-spank".

Saw Procol Harum at the Palladium in London. Was a cool show. Performed with a full church choir and a small orchestra. Interesting. Other than Whiter Shade of Pale it was all new to me.

I used the 10% ebay coupon today to buy McCartney tickets for my sister's B-day today. In all reality, I'm a bigger Beatle fan.

In an awesome day of nostalgia, I saw 38 Special at the county fair this summer. Man, they put on a great show!

If anyone is debating seeing McCartney, I would highly recommend it. Amazing non-stop performance.

Saw The Who recently.
Last night Bonnie Raitt and Mark Knopfler at MSG. A truly great show.

Saw The Who at Fenway. I know they’re getting up in age but was disappointed. And I could have done without the 60 piece orchestra.

Kinda like some ball players should have hung it up sooner!

I was at the Jennifer Lopez MSG concert during the blackout in July. Amazingly MSG evacuated without incident, very orderly. The show was rescheduled two days later... outstanding!
Followed that up in August with Barbara Streisand. She still can sing, but yikes! She talks too much. I won't do that again.

Kind of amazed The Who is still at it. Seems like they should have bowed gout racefully by now. Either the remaining guys love being on the road or someone needs $$.

Saw Reckless Kelly a couple of weeks ago, and just got tickets last night for Steve Earle. Both shows are at the Narrows Center in Fall River, MA.

The place is cool...an old mill a stones throw from “battleship cove” that doubles as an art studio. Holds maybe 400 people.

They also have a BYO policy for drinks and food for shows...so you can show up with a cooler of beer and a pizza and go right in!

Summer of country concerts came to an end a couple weekends ago with Rascal Flatts. Started the summer with a local 3-day show called The Country Fest. Cannot recommend Morgan Wallen, Chris Young, and Brantley Gilbert enough. The latter 2 are 2 of the greatest concerts I've seen. High energy, badass performances, etc.

Dierks Bentley is a decent concert with his older stuff; his new crap sucks for the most part.

Rascal Flatts is a heck of a concert if you don't mind poor vocals. The crowd typically out-sings him and drowns him out, which is a good thing.

Brad Paisley is also a great time. Such a phenomenal portfolio of music, and he's a Browns fan so him putting on a concert in Northeast Ohio the day of or day after(?) visiting Browns Training Camp got the crowd hyped, especially when he walked out in Browns gear.

Blossom Music Center in Northeast Ohio is an excellent outdoor venue, for anyone that travels or lives in the area. They hold a variety of musical shows. Great atmosphere, and for the rowdy crowd the tailgating is phenomenal.

I'm excited for country music season next summer, with Luke Combs coming to the area for The Country Fest. Talk about a rowdy 3 days - that's going to be an insane weekend with the campers.

Since Brooklyn Steel opened up, I’m not so sure my wife and I have seen a band at any other venue. Our first “non” Brooklyn Steel show in 6 or 7 years will be at Forest Hills Stadium to see Phantogram, Viagra Boys and Queens of the Stoneage. This will be the second time I’ll leave before the headliner goes on. I’m not a huge fan of Queens of the Stone Age. Phantogram is good, Viagra Boys phenomenal

Just saw Ben Folds last night and he was great as usual with support from the local orchestra.

Saw Lord Huron a couple months ago which was also great, and Billy Idol and Bonnie Raitt lined up for the next month.

Just got back from seeing what amounted to the 'Yacht Rock' version of "The Last Waltz" at a casino out here. Holy frickin' cow!!

The show was basically 1970's/Early 80's pop group Ambrosia joined by an all-star lineup of other famed 70's acts and one (or two) hit wonders. One by one they called up performers to join them and sing some songs.

As a tribute to Robbie Robertson, they even all joined together for an awesome doing of "The Weight." Spectacular!!!

Here are the cool highlights. Look at this lineup of huuuuuuge hits:
Ambrosia - "How Much I Feel," "Biggest Part of Me," "You're the Only Woman (You & I)" and "Holdin' on to Yesterday"
Al Stewart - "Time Passages" and "Year of the Cat"
Walter Egan - "Magnet and Steel"
Elliot Lurie (Lead singer of Looking Glass) - "Brandy (You're a Fine Girl)" and their other Top 40 hit, "Jimmy Loves Mary-Anne"
John Ford Coley (From England Dan & John Ford Coley) - "Nights Are Forever Without You," "I'd Really Love to See You Tonight," "We'll Never Have to Say Goodbye Again" and (everyone on stage joining in for) "Love Is the Answer"

Although, it wasn't all good. It's going to be impossible to forget all of the former 'hotties' (with an additional 40 years of road wear on their bodies) excitedly shaking their asses up front and singing loudly along to the songs. They always seemed only moments away from tossing their underwear, well Depends, on stage. Don't want to be mean, but these former 'groupies' have turned into 'droopies.' Gravity is a cruel demon. Yoinks!!!!! I found myself reaching under my seat in search of an in-concert barf bag. Other than that, what a cool event!!!

Morgan Wallen at FedEx field on Saturday night. Great show and great crowd.

Was never a fan of country music but my 15 year old got us completely hooked on the newer stuff. Have seen Morgan Wallen, Luke Combs, and Chris Stapleton this summer. Going to see Zach Bryan in October. Yee-haw!!!

Recently saw Steve Miller from very up close. Saw him turn his head away from the microphone, yet, somehow the sound of his voice never altered a bit. How does a 78 year old guy sing better today than he did in the 80's? He can still play guitar, but I don't think he was singing every note.

Also saw James Taylor last weekend who, on the other hand, seemed real. Good enough voice to carry it off, but he sounded his age, which was fine. The stories and the overall show was great.

I'm not sure how I feel about these old bands using backing tracks and auto-tune, and secret backup musicians hidden in the shadows. All these old bands are selling out arenas, but a lot of it seems pretty fake. People don't seem to care though.

Saw Steve Miller at Jazzfest in NOLA this year. Was very good.

Saw Counting Crows at an outdoor venue and they were spectacular. My favorite post 90s band.

Price points for tickets has gotten insane. Mid grade tickets at Madison Square Garden with good sight lines I used to love buying a frw years ago at $125 are now $625 seats. Nuts.

Recently had the pleasure of seeing Jackson Browne, Steely Dan and The Eagles.

Jackson Browne was just himself and his band. Played for roughly three hours, at the Beacon Theater, here in NYC. He took a couple of song requests from the crowd, and played music from his early albums as well. Fantastic performance overall.

Steely Dan, opened for the Eagles at MSG. I'll freely admit I've never been a huge fan of them, but I really respect their artistry. Especially the man they had on the drums. God could he play, definitely gave me a newfound appreciation for them.

The Eagles, were downright incredible. These are not the Eagles of yesteryear, but damn do they come close. Glenn Frey's son, Deacon Frey, takes the reigns on a couple of his songs. There were certain parts of the show, where If you closed your eyes, you would think a young Glenn Frey was still with us. Vince Gill, has been a perfect addition to the band, since the passing of Glenn. He sings lead, on "New Kid in Town" and "Take It To The Limit," amongst others. I think he does a great job of capturing Glenn's spirit on some of his songs, and I love that he's able to hit some high notes on "Take it To The Limit" because it keeps the essence of the song, back from when Randy Meisner was a member of the group. Don Henley has aged like a fine wine, he still sounds rock solid, you certainly wouldn't think the man is 76.

My absolute favorite part of the show though? Joe Walsh. It's not even close. He's 75, going on 17 with the amount of energy he has. His guitar playing, was out of this world. He bounces around on stage, having a grand old time, rocking out with everyone. Perfect proof, that men only grow old, they do not grow up.

Ive been to a ton of shows but to be honest, i 'worked' the shows for live nation and others so i have to show people their seats but for 90% of the time i can watch the shows and also direct any friends i know to seats that are not full so they can move down to a better position. All they got to do is get the cheapest ticket and i can move them down, man i should charge for that....40 dollars seats to $2000 seat upgrade should be worth something right?

Saw KISS last night in Baltimore. Last show before their final 2 shows at MSG this weekend. They’re up there in age and sounded like it. Gene still has some voice and great stage showmanship. Paul was so awkward with his crowd interaction. His voice is off and you could see his timing was off as well. I was able to channel my inner teenager for most of it but honestly didn’t even make it to the encore. Luckily tickets were free. Still glad I got to see them live.

If anyone is going this weekend I hope the acoustics at MSG can cover some of the flaws. The pyrotechnics and stage show are still great.

Haven't been to a concert since 2007 when I saw Toby Keith in Raleigh, NC. Saw him twice in total. Saw a handful of other bands but the best ones I went to were Metallica in 1996/97 and the two times I saw Aerosmith. Once during the Pump album tour which I think was late 90s and the 2nd time was around 2000 or so.

Saw two cover bands recently at a smallish club. Both national touring acts and both excellent.

Best of the Eagles: really great cover act. Loved the show.

Yacht Rock Review: a ton of fun. All cheesy but great 70s-80s songs. I haven't been able to get the Little River Band out of my head for 2 weeks now. I love AM radio 70s classics and every song they played was spot on.

Had to accompany my youngest to see Travis Scott. It wasn’t my type of music but at least he’s an Astros guy. I want to go to Cruel World coming up. I wouldn’t mind seeing Ministry and Duran Duran. I think Adam Ant is supposed to be there too. He was a no show somewhere recently, I think visa issues.

Saw U2 on Nov. 1st in Vegas at the Sphere. Awesome show and unbelievable venue. I've always loved Bono's vocals, but The Edge makes the band.
