Got tickets for the farewell Motley Crue tour (with Alice Cooper) when it hits Chicago in August.  I've never seen Alice Cooper before, so I'm really excited to catch this show.

I was thinking the same about Alice Cooper. 

I haven't bought my tickets yet, but am planning to catch the Crue when they are here in Dallas in July.  My only sticking point is my wife and I are taking my daughter to Disney World for her first time and that will also be in July.  My wife wants to shoot me because part of me wants to plan vacation around a concert.

Going to see Eric Burdon and The Animals on Friday. As long as he doesn't have a heart attack during the show it should be really cool.

Pretty awesome that at 72 he could still rock it out like he did last night! Awesome concert! Small venue. So cool.

Going to Queen with Adam Lambert in June. Been a very long time since I have seen them back in 1977. Sure miss Freddie.  :'(

Caught Elvis Costello & The Impostors over the weekend.  Great show, but surprising, too.  I've always been struck by how thoughtful and eloquent Elvis Costello is offstage, and I thought he would talk a little bit between songs.  But Saturday night in Atlantic City?  Not at all!  He was all business, charging through his set with nary a break between songs except to change guitars a couple of times.  And his guitar playing was far more adventurous and aggressive than I've ever heard on a recording. 

He's actually playing locally tonight too, just outside of NYC, at the newly renovated Capital Theater.  But this time he's going to be backed up by The Roots!

Me?  Not going to be there.  Because I'll be checking out The Allman Brothers Band!  WOOHOO!!!
