I went to BABYMETAL over the weekend.  It was one hell of an experience.

I know its been a while now but the Gun N' Roses show in Vegas was amazing. Best i ever heard Axl sound. Helped he wasn't running around.

Just bought a ticket to see Alice in Chains when they come through town in September. Looking very forward to it.

Nice! How was Dillinger Escape Plan? I was working at Relapse when we signed those guys...unreal live show.

I had the pleasure of watching another Relapse band live last night...Richmond's own Windhand.  8)

Sorry, I missed this... they're always amazing.  I'm bummed that they're calling it quits, but am looking forward to the inevitable reunion tour in a few years. :)

That's awesome Rob. When Relapse first signed those guys years ago it was off a performance at some guy's house party in PA. Blew everyone away. I think they were one of the first bands to get slapped with the "Math Metal" label, which I love.

And yeah, I need to move to Japan too. I could literally quit my life and become a BabyMetal groupie.

For sure.  The band I was in back in college played a show with them in Baltimore.  Would have been 2002-ish.  I'd never heard of them, and had never seen anything like it.  Total insanity.  At one point I remember the bass player breaking the head of his guitar off on some guy's head - total accident, he was just going crazy with it and hit this guy so hard that it broke right off.  He must have had a string lock or something because everyone just carried on like it had never happened.

Saw them again a few years ago here with Darkest Hour and for how awesome I think they are, Dillinger's set was so much more over the top that it made Darkest Hour look like a bunch of school girls.

Oh man, how did I not remember to post about this show? Freaking awesome, as AIC played pretty much all of their hit songs, and 90% of it was stuff from the Staley years. Picked up an awesome poster at the show too.

Starting off my year of concerts, I saw Garth Brooks/Trisha Yearwood this past Saturday night. 9 shows sold out, this was his 3rd showing plus his 1st of a double back to back showing & it was electrifying. From start to finish, 20,000 plus fans standing, dancing & singing & of course drinking.  ;D  I have been to many other concerts over my years but Garth Brooks show has to be the best I have been too. He's funny as hell & where does he get all that energy from.

Still have Queen with Adam Lambert, Guns N' Roses & Roger Waters to see this year...

Damn, I was reviewing the Davidson summer calendar and I have **** ton of concerts coming up:

-Metallica tomorrow
-Violent Femmes and Echo & the Bunnymen 7/15
-Foreigner and Cheap Trick two days later 7/17
-Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers 3 days after that 7/20
-Imagine Dragons 10/29 (my oldest son's first concert, will be a birthday gift)

And I'm actively looking for good prices for Billy Joel at Fenway (I drug my wife to both Pearl Jam shows there last summer and kind of have to pay her back) and U2 Joshua Tree tour.
