Concerts You've Attended

Recommended Posts

The first show I took my kids to see (the boys anyway) was a free show at the local county park...it was Gov't Mule! My older guy was around 8 and the younger was 5. Nor sure if either of them remember too much...but I can tell you it was great.

Another edition of Roger to ensure my place in the Songfacts Yearbook. :grin:

The concert on Saturday night was... soooo fun. It was the first Roger concert I've been to where I was... betrunken... and it seemed to go so much quicker than the rest! I could not believe it when they left the stage - and then I looked at my watch and it had been over 2 hours. *whew*

He rocked, as usual... Roger doesn't know how to put on a bad show. Period.

Word to the wise: don't wear boots with 3" heels if you're going to be on your feet for more than 3 consecutive hours. My toes are still numb.

( s'cuse me ) The Rocket Man rocked ! Just the man and his piano - no band ( though I suspect the piano was wired a bit to give whatever effects were necessary ) . Best part was hearing some unconventional versions of favoriites as well as extented endings that really made it worth the while and expense .

The way this was set up really gave one an appreciation for what an awesome piano player Elton is .

I'm not so sure whether I would call myself a 'fan' or not , but I've always liked the majority of his songs and ... well , dammit , I guess I am a fan of his music - unappoligetically . :beatnik:

( suspiciously looking around for cameras ) Yes - we just got in from dinner now . Had a lovely fugu course dinner ( including fugu testicals - shut up , Sammy ! ) , and fugu fins flavoring your hot sake ... Great winter eating here .

Yes, I watched you... the food looked nice. :shades: And I just looked up fugu and quite liked the definition... "Because pufferfish is lethally poisonous if prepared incorrectly, fugu has become one of the most celebrated and notorious dishes in Japanese cuisine."

:laughing: :doh: WE can only wish for such . According to the wife who watches people expire daily for a living , they usually only gasp desperately or choke or sigh with a bit of physical struggle , sadly . :)

:laughing: I guess THAT would be the ultimate class distinction ! ;) Makes you wonder just how much of those ' famous last words ' are the contribution of zealots or the like rather than being real ...?!

I saw Elton in Sydney a year to the day you saw him Kevin. Also, my parents are going to see him tomorrow night Tempest II winery in the Hunter Valley. I'll tell them you gave his one man show the thumbs up.

Blue Man Group was incredible. I recommend this to anyone who gets the chance to see them, regardless of what your taste in music is. Their show, at least on this tour, is basically a parody of a rock concert, but still a kick-ass rock concert. The show is driven by a manual called "How To Be A Megastar 2.0" (created by a character played by SNL's Fred Armisen) that gives advice on how to be a rock star, including "rock movements" like "the basic head bob" and the "arm thrust and scream" and advice like "always remember to pay tribute to the megastars that came before you during your concert so your fans don't realize what a pretentious ass you really are". Even with all the humor and strange performance art involved, there's no denying the great musicianship of the Blue Men and their backing band. All their songs, original and covers, were mind-blowing, especially their cover of Baba O'Riley, played mainly on tubing and a grand piano that had been turned on its side and struck with a giant mallet. Seriously, see this show if you can.
