Skip to comments.Why concerts/performances did you attend in 2012?

2012 was a great year for live music. I got to see a lot of shows this year.
Justin Townes Earle
Walter Salas Humara (The Silos)
Jon Langford and the Sadies
Kieran Kane, Kevin Welch, Fats Kaplan
Sweet Talk Radio
BTW, I enjoyed Lambchop, Lucero and Dirty Three the most from my list.
What do you ask?
A suggestion...carefully read your posts before pushing the little button.
Too many loud concerts have addled my brain!
I’m showing my age lol, I only recognize Dwight Yoakam and Mike Nesmith from your list. In 2012 saw the Beach Boys in Irvine, CA and Columbia, MD.
I listen to a lot of obscure music.
There was a fat guy playing a guitar at a cafe I ate at back in June if that counts.
I attended a few concerts of classical music at the Spoleto Festival in Charleston on Memorial Day weekend. Last Sunday I saw the Ehnes String Quartet play in Macon. Long drive, but worth the trip.
Didn’t hit as many this year. Still had plenty of fun seeing:
Zappa Plays Zappa
plus a few purely local Tucson bands, including some tomorrow.
I took my teenage daughter and her friends to the Pink Floyd Experience (a tribute band) and was impressed. The played the whole Wish You Were Here album in the first half of the show.
Saw the Moody Blues last week.....only three of the original group left. The drummer is 71. They were good, but I felt like I was watching what may be one of their last shows.
It says 2012, not 1982...
Doobie Brothers at the “intimate” Celebrity Theatre in Phoenix.
1. Gemini Dream
2. The Voice
3. Steppin' in a Slide Zone
4. You and Me
5. Tuesday Afternoon
8. Say It With Love
9. Peak Hour
10. I Know You're Out There Somewhere
11. The Story in Your Eyes
12. Your Wildest Dreams
13. Isn't Life Strange
14. Higher and Higher
16. I'm Just a Singer (In a Rock and Roll Band)
17. Late Lament
18. Nights in White Satin
20. Ride My See-Saw
1) Old 97’s
2) The Mavericks
3) The Jayhawks
4) Cheap Trick
5) Neil Young
See my post 18. If you're in Indiana, then you saw them just before I did here in Missouri.
only three of the original group left.
Lead guitarist/vocalist/songwriter Justin Hayward, bass guitarist/vocalist/songwriter John Lodge, and drummer Graeme Edge. Then they have four other musicians that travel with them.
The drummer is 71. They were good, but I felt like I was watching what may be one of their last shows.
Graeme Edge is 71, but he is the least essential of the group. The two key, irreplaceable guys are Justin Hayward, 66, and John Lodge, 67, and I think they still have some years left in them.
First of all, I've lost more than 60 pounds.
Secondly, I haven't been able to play the guitar since 12/28/2011, so . . . never mind.
Now we’re talking......I love Old 97s and Raul Malo.
Tedeschi Trucks Band
Probably 3-4 others I can’t remember right now.
Buddy Miller is great. Saw him with Patty Griffin. Saw Bob Schneider a few times. Many local DFW acts to numerous to list. Also, Maren Morris about 20 times. :)
Been a rough year. All of the bands I wanted to see, I wasn’t able to, and I may not ever have the chance to see them again. Rush, Primus, Iron Maiden, and Anthrax, missed em all, among many others, Im sure. Iron Maiden is the only one I have never seen live. Hopefully they all have some more touring left in them and Ill get another chance...
Geez...I saw half the bands on your list in 1972!
Maiden in Chicago.
I’ve heard of exactly two on your list. Man, am I ever out of touch.
I am out of touch with mainstream music.
Let me add The Who to my list; we can make it more than half!
Most of those guys are still putting out great music.
Head and the Heart
Gillian Welch and Tim Rawlings
Trampled by Turtles
I couldn't get into Head and the Heart, however. Bought the CD, listened to it once.
I am going to Aida at Cinemagic tomorrow.
I saw Pat Benatar in 1984. Good show, great vocals.
If you ever get a chance to see them live, I highly recommend it. They are one of those bands that takes it up several notches live. High energy, they enjoy themselves, etc.
Great live band.
Wow - did a super double header just last weekend - Rachmaninoff in Philadelphia with the Philadelphia Orchestra, Denis Metsuev and Gianandrea Noseda playing the Third Concerto and Second Symphony - superb - and just the next day the Holiday Concert with Peter Nero and the Philly Pops - a great musical weekend......
Saw Brian Setzer last nite at the Hard Rock in Tulsa.
I have seen Radiohead, Sons of Bill, The Villains, Brian Setzer, and Jason Isbell, Some great shows.
Going tomorrow (Saturday) night to see and hear Trans-Siberian Orchestra!
Saw him last Saturday night. Fantastic show!
Have you seen them before? Great show musically but a little hokey/Spinal Tap’ish on th stage production. Really good though. Enjoy!
We saw them on the 1st in Baltimore!
Elton John, Moody Blues 2x.
Our sons took us to see them as a Christmas present a few years ago.
