Thinking about picking up some tickets for Coldplay when they're at SPAC here in June.

They're not my favorite band, but I saw them back in 2003 while they were supporting Rush of Blood to the Head and it was one of the best concerts I've ever seen in my life.  I think my chest is still hurting from the bass at that show.

Plus, that show was crawling with chicks.

And  by June, I mean tonight, for Coldplay. Gonna be running a little late, but I don't really care too much about missing the first two acts. Some band I've never heard of, and some Pete Yourne guy thats apparently popular with Tweens, because my sisters have heard of him. Plus the shows I've been to have never started on time, and you have to love set up and take down times for the bands. I hope I have a blast!

Well, my buddy and I were planning on going to see Motley Crue in August but it is appearing tha we won't.  My buddy caught them in concert the other night on one of his HD channels and said Vince Neil's voice sounds horrible and you couldn't hear him well over the instruments.  I've noticed the same thing when I've caught them on VH1's Classic in Concert.  Some of that could just be the TV mix, but I'm highly doubtful with it being HD.

So, I'm kind of sad that I'll probably not be going, but yet happy that I won't be dropping $100+ on a concert.

things have probably changed since the girls girls girls tour when i saw the crue, but i was actually kinda surprised what a tight band they were.  prior to going, me and my friends had always wondered how a group of guys who could barely sing and play their instruments (except for tommy) could have ever become famous.

After U2 in September, I'll be seeing Pearl Jam's second show in Philly in October.  Pretty excited for both, it'll be the first time seeing each live.

Nice.  Blasphemous though it may be, I'm not a huge U2 fan.  That said, I'd go see them live if I had the chance.


Pearl Jam is amazing (thank you Scott) and just a fantastic show.


For me, the only show on the slate thus far is AC/DC in August (5th row on the floor).  I'm going to try and get tickets for the ZZ Top/Aerosmith show now that they've dropped prices.  Also still trying to get in for the Metallica show in October.

I'm going to see the Moody Blues next month as my five year wedding anniversary from my wife. I'm really excited about it. It's cool to see the classics before they die. And then were just stuck with the "musicians" that make music nowadays.

It was really cool to see 60+ year olds doing what they've been doing for 40+ years so well. Really cool!!!!!

Went to Heaven & Hell last night, good show but short set. Britney Spears was playing upstairs at the garden so i assume thats why the we got out earlier than usual.
