Great Year For Concerts
« on: March 19, 2019, 10:59:12 PM »
Just yesterday I managed to get some tickets to see the Rolling Stones. I’ve seen them before. Twice in fact. But that was a very, very long time ago. So I’m pretty stoked to get these tickets. But this is really just the “icing on the cake” so to speak. My wife and I go to a lot of shows, and this year is turning out to be one of the best yet. As I said, we’ve now got tickets to see the Stones. But we also have tickets to see Paul McCartney (I’ve seen him a number of times previously and he always puts on a great show); Queen with Adam Lambert; Elton John; and ELO with Dhani Harrison. Is looking to be a very good year, at least concert wise!

I'm looking forward to the SeaHearNow, 2 day concert festival in Asbury Park, September 21-22.  Last year was a total blast, this year there is a whole new line-up, but it should be equally as good!

Two weeks ago, my wife and I went to Jackson Rancheria Casino on Northern California, to see Journey Live.  Not the Journey that has been seen and heard over the past 30 years, but almost the original Journey. Neal Schon and Gregg Rolie, the original founding members of Journey, got together last year and did a single concert with 3 other very talented musicians.  That concert was named Journey through Time and was so well received they decided to tour in 2019.  We went to the first show.  The difference between the "pop" music of the Steve Perry fronted Journey, along with all the singers who followed Steve Perry, was that this concert would include many of the songs from the first 3 Journey Albums.  If you have never heard them, check out the first album "Journey", and the 2nd "Look into the Future, and the last album before Steve Perry, "Next". 
The concert included all of the hits from the Pop version of Journey and they played 7 songs from the first 3 albums.  The last time I heard those songs live was at Winterland around 1975.  It was surreal to be sitting there watching Neal and Gregg, playing songs they haven't played in 40 years.  Neal is as sharp as ever on guitar and Gregg sounded great.  The drummer was amazing.  He actually was a Steve Perry sound alike and fronted Journey when Steve Perry quit years ago.  He played the drums and sang all the Steve Perry hits, you would expect to hear at any other Journey Concert. 
Much of the audience were obviously Pop Journey fans, and when they started the concert with 3 old Journey songs you could tell the younger "Don't stop Believing" crowd didn't know what to think when they played 7-8 minute instrumentals.   
If you like "Old" Journey, don't miss this show.  If you can't go, google Neal Schon Journey Through Time.  There are  a lot of videos on line of them playing last year.
8'5" Starboard Pocket Rocket, 8'0" Kazuma Fugu custom,  8'10" Kings Sidewinder, 10' Starboard Noserider, 14' BARK Carbon Dominator, SIC F16 V3, KeNalu and Quickblade paddles, 19' Eaton Prone, 67" Goode 9700

A few weeks ago I secured a couple of good tickets to see Peter Frampton during his final tour (Vina Robles Amphitheater), and it will be his final tour due to health.  Hopefully he will still be healthy enough to perform to his own standards when this concert finally happens,,,,,,,,,,, next October.  One has to act early to get good seats.
It takes a quiver to do that.

Why is that?  It shows how popular music still is, as well as how many people have enough disposal income to be able to attend those concerts.
Or is it that you don't necessarily like the music that is so popular?
Music is an elixir towards happiness.

That's the one (with the resuscitation tours being the odd exceptions).  Someone spiked the punch but the Hi-C rose back to the top.

Alrightythen, I'd go along with that, I would have like to have seen the Rolling Stones (on that list) about 20 to 25 years ago, but the Strolling Bones of today?  Nah.

Saw the Stones in 65. Before good PA was figured out. Lotsa screaming. Fun.

Again in 69 at Boston Garden. Mick Taylor. Incredible show!

And the Steel Wheel Tour. Living Color opened.

No interest in seeing 'em now.

But have fun!

Thanks Mr. Big. As I said in my original post, I’ve seen the Stones twice, but it has been a very long time. I’m actually really looking forward to seeing them again, and am pretty sure this will be the last chance I get.
