What Live concerts have you attended? - Page 5

Thanks itza2mer. I'd forgotten about Saga. My best friend and business partner used to go to school with two of the members. Back around 1978 when they first formed and were playing locally, we used to party with them before they left for their first European tour.

I saw Saga in 1982, opening for Jethro Tull on Tull's 'Broadsword and the Beast' Tour. Saga's 'World's Apart' was hitting big at the time. Saga played a short set, but they still put on a great show. That's wild that you knew the band in their early days!

Last week I've been to two concerts. The first by Portugese fado singer Mísia -- she was wonderful as always. A sonorous, passionate voice, accompanied by the Portugese guitar, violin and cello. Most of the songs performed from her concert was from her newest album (just released less than a month ago) which I bought and had her autographed.

I can post a detailed review if anyone is interested.

The second concert was by Bill Frisell and his new fusion outfit, the Intercontinentals. The music was nice enough but the performance left something to be desired. The ensembleship seemed lacking, the band took two long sets to warm up. They had a absolutely magical African drummer though, and he had brough much life to the music.

The music was varied enough, covering everything from Blues to Afro-Caribbean vibes to Middle Easten oud music (the oud player was good as well; and apart from the oud he was apparently well verse in Middle Eastern vocal ornamentations) wish I could hear more from him) to guitar feedback loops.

Will see later this year and early next year:

Evelyn Glennie
Charles Llyod
Jan Garbarek
Gilberto Gil
Orchestra Baobab
Jane Birkin

I've been going to concerts for over thirty years. Last weekend I saw two shows (one electric, one acoustic) by Fred Eaglesmith and his band. I would definately rank both those shows (and especially the electric one) in the top ten of the hundreds of concerts I have seen. Definately check him out if he comes to your area. He plays 250-300 shows a year, so he will probably be in your area sooner or later.

I'd suggest going to your first show of his without ever hearing his music before, if possible, so you don't have any preconceived impressions. My wife never heard him before and she ethusiastically loved both shows.
