I heard Dave Weckl & His Acoustic Band at The Iridium Friday night.

First time I saw him live. Great performance, the boys [Dave Weckl, drums - Makoto Ozone, piano & keyboards - Tom Kennedy, bass - Gary Meek, sax] really had some fun on stage, so did the audience.

BoC was the second gig I went to in 1979 (Manchester Apollo), then again 30 years later at the Picturedrome in Holmfirth, just down the road from where I live...wonderful. U2 in 1985. I think REM were on the same bill...How about your gigs?

Cool! I expected they would be great. I missed BoC last year when they played their anniversary concert at Times Square  :/

 

We overlap a bit...mine are in post #504 in this thread.

Saw the Eagles last night in Portland. Played for over 3 hours with no warmup band and were spectacular.

If you get a chance to see this "History of the a Eagles" tour do it.

When I saw them on this tour they had Bernie Leadon (original member) come out and join them on several numbers, that was very cool.

 

Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers/Steve Winwood @ Bridgestone Nashville 9/23/14

 

Winwood lives in Nashville and has joined Petty's tour as an opener on several of his shows this year.  He sounded better than when I saw him in Charlotte 5 years ago.

 

Petty sounded great, but every other night X months takes it's toll on a 65 year old, and this was the least personable I have seen him, compared to the previous 5 shows I saw in previous tours.

Robert Plant in Toronto's Massey Hall this past Sept. 30th.
Brilliant!
Amazing!
He played a lot of new stuff, some old blues covers and some drastically reworked Led Zeppelin.

Really looking forward to seeing/hearing him. A very underrated guitarist IMHO.

My first live concert was Phish at Worcester Centrum in November of 97, 11/27/97, the following November I saw them twice more in Worcester, and the next year I went to all of the NorthEast shows and then went to their y2k New Year's concert on the Big Cypress Indian Reservation in the everglades of Florida.  This was hands down the best concert experience of my life, which has included hundreds of concerts and festivals from coast to coast over the past 18 years.  Nothing holds a flame to what took place down their in the everglades as Phish played from prior to midnight until sunrise straight through without a stop.  I had given up on Phish and really the whole touring live music scene for quite a while, prior to Phish's split, just after hearing them in 2004 starting to lose it and Trey clearly in a poor state of mind.  This past February I caught a youtube video of Trey promoting drug court, and speaking about his current state of sobriety and that his band was back together.  I decided to give a listen to what I could find online from last fall's tour and was blown away.  Not only were they back on they are tighter than ever. So my most recent concert experience was going to the summer tour opener at the xFinity Center (Great Woods) in Mansfield, MA with row 8 seats.  My expectations were met and exceeded.  Being an epileptic, and this being my first show since I began having seizures I was pretty nervous, with the light show and all.  However, with a good dark pair of shades I was able to enjoy every minute of it, and with this in mind I look forward to catching as many live performances as I can now.  If I can't be there, I will either watch the webcast or download the show the next day and hope somebody who taped it will leave it in 24-Bit sound before uploading the torrent.

Paul McCartney Nashville 10/16, my 2nd time to see him live.  Out of the 200+ live concerts I've seen I would rate this #2, #1 was McCartney in NYC at Yankee stadium 2011.

 

Pat Benatar 10/17 Fall Foothills festival

 

 

Next up Jack White can't wait for that one :L3000:

I saw a real master of his craft tonight...Robin Trower at the Paramount in NY. It's funny, but I can't help but feel privileged.
