None, I stay out of crowds.
A medal to the guy who famously said....."Americans don't like music today, they prefer noise."
Saw the “Lion King” Broadway show (it was fantastic). Also saw a group called “Rain” who do a very presentable impersonation of the Beatles, from their early days, through to the Let it Be days. They were also very good and very believable.
Yes performing “Going for the One”, “Close to the Edge” and “the Yes Album” in their entirety. Magnificent!
Zac Brown Band
Heart/Jason Bonham Led Zeppelin Experience - unbelievable show
Straight No Chaser
Sons of Bill
Jason Isbell - Southeastern is the album of the year.
It was a light year but fun, Devo, The Dropkick Murphies, Ian Anderson and Black Sabbath. Next year is starting well with my favorite bar band The Young Dubliners coming to town in January and The Straits in March.
celtic woman at red rocks amphitheater in colorado. not a big concert or club goer anymore.
The Warlocks, over in La Honda. Oh.... Wait...
Weird Al. I thought he would be great live; I completely under-estimated the experience. Had the fringe benefit of being a show that I could take my seven-year-old girl to as well. She loved him too.
Million Dollar Quartet
Emmylou Harris & Rodney Crowell in a show that pretty much covered their careers from the early 70s up to today (and Richard Thompson opened for them).
Saw Alan Jackson on the day George Jones died. Jones was his friend and idol, and Jackson choked back the tears to deliver a heartfelt version of ‘He Stopped Loving Her Today’, which was worth the price of admission just by itself.
The good thing about both the shows, aside from the fact they featured artists with actual talent, was that excellent seats were available for really reasonable prices, something hard to find if you go to a show featuring the latest flash-in-the-pan pre-fab ‘stars’.
Train, with Gavin DeGraw and the Script
The Damn Quails
WC Handy Blues fest in Henderson KY which included “The voices of the Wetland Allstars” with Big chief Monk Boudreaux & Cyril Neville.
