Wish I was going to Bonnaroo, just not in the cards this year though. When are you driving up Brad? When you're on I-24E you'll go right through my town (Murfreesboro) about 20 miles before you reach Manchester.

About 8 cars or so made a nice caravan from my town to Roo on Thursday morning. We'll probably do that next year, too. You should come to Roo next year, I'd love to hang out and have a beer or something.

Roo had some awesome camp names, my camp was R2D2 - our neighbors were Camp Lando Calrissian and Camp Darth Vader, I think.

Anyway, it really kicked ass... The entire experience, minus having a leaky tent, was great. Dave Matthews Band put on the best performance that I saw, I also really enjoyed My Morning Jacket (both times I've seen these guys live, I've really enjoyed it through and through), and Allison Krauss and Union Station. Modest Mouse was lousy, IMHO - they just didn't sound excited to be there. Jack Johnson was great, but I missed Iron and Wine and Mars Volta. Although I hadn't planned on seeing Rilo Kiley, my friends talked me into it - and I gotta tell you, he did awesome. Widespread Panic was boring, to me. I don't know why, but I just can't seem to get into their jams... Both of their performances were about 3 or 4 hours long, and both of them bored me to death. I just can't get into those long ass 30 minute songs they do.


I may be seeing The Killers this upcoming weekend... can't decide.

Well I'll be back to a concert for the first time in I believe 3 years, when I see Gigantour in August. We're talking Megadeth, Dream Theater, Fear Factory, Nevermore (both with Chicago roots) and more on a relatively inexpensive stadium tour. $40 for seats for this show, as opposed to $100 for Ozzfest this year, it was a no-brainer. Seeing DT though in a stadium environment will be odd though, I've always seen them in small venues, hope the bigger venue doesn't detract from the sound quality...

Man, I'd give my left nut to see Dream Theater and Megadeth.

Is the one in Chicago sold out? It looks like it.

this will be my 4th time seeing DT and Megadeth each, always good shows for the bands.

i just took a look and chicago isn't sold out, still some pretty good seats available.

I'd love to see the Doors, but those morons never come south. It's like our money is no good to them, or something. Damn 'em. I didn't even know the Yardbirds were touring - is it the original band or what? Steppenwolf used to rock hard, but I saw them on TV a couple of weeks ago and they looked like they belonged in some trashy Vegas casino or something... their show sucked balls.

I'd have loved to go see Green Day, but after seeing them a bunch when I was younger for 8$, 12$....  I'm not paying $40.00 to see them in a stadium - no f'n' way.

I paid about $25... and on top of that, $20 for parking. It was well worth it.


Lots of jail bait there, though.  :-\

That's not too bad... tickets started at like 35+ or something ridiculous like that for the Dallas show.

Stones tickets are around $400-500 for seats that don't suck. I know there are some that are massively cheaper, around $100-200, but I wouldn't pay that for tickets that suck.

i don't know how the stones get away with their ticket prices.  i saw them on the steel wheels tour and tickets were only like $30 and some of my friends bought their tickets just a few days before the show.

last time they can around they played the freakin' texas motor speeday and tickets were $75.  that is just ridiculous to be 2 miles away and pay $75.

So, did anyone else hear about that **** Sharon Osbourne pulled on Iron Maiden this past weekend?

Ever since "The Osbournes" I wished she'd take a long walk off a short pier and let Ozzy retire.

Here's a link from earlier this week.

Clicky.
