Just bought tickets to see Eric Clapton in March. Not sure what to expect but I'm looking forward to it.

How about expecting a FREAKING AWESOME SHOW! The Wallflowers opened and they sucked (played 6 songs and were out for 45 minutes) but Clapton tore the house down... played for around 2.5 hours and played all of his big hits, plus a few of the blues songs I'm not familiar with. Brought Jimmy Vaughn on stage for a Stevie Ray tribute song at one point.

Money WELL spent.

Nice, I hope Clutch plays some of the cool old stuff like "Rats" or "Juggernaut".

Yeah, hoping for Space Grass, Soap Makers, etc...hated the last album and will find out how I feel about the new album tomorrow I assume. Love everything from their first to Robot Hive though.

I've seen Clapton a couple of times over the past few years.  First with Cream at one of their MSG reunion shows, and in 2010 at the Crossroads festival in Chicago.  And he did not disappoint!  I'd love to see him this time out, but concert tickets are a bit pricey.

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.

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've got tickets for a couple of pretty cool shows coming up within a couple of weeks.  First, Elvis Costello & The Imposters!  I've been wanting to see him live for years, and tickets to this show were a pretty amazing Christmas gift.

Later on that same week?  The Allman Brothers Band at NYC's Beacon Theater.  When word came out that the two guitarists for the ABB would be leaving the group at the end of this year I saw the writing on the wall that this could be the end of the Allmans.  So I was determined to get tickets to see the Allmans during their month-long residency at one of the best venues in New York.  Tickets went fast, but I was able to get them.  And sure enough, after we got tickets the news came out from Gregg Allman that the ABB would cease touring at the end of this year, which marks their 45th anniversary as a band.

I've got tickets to see Ghost in April.

Also just bought tickets to see Queens of the Stone Age in May. 

And a few weeks ago we saw Manowar - which was ******* amazing and by far the loudest thing I've ever heard.

Cooper's a riot, but these days it's hard to believe he was ever scary.  I've met him a couple of times.  Great golfer.
