I went to Boston for a few days earlier this week to see Pearl Jam at Fenway Park. They've been doing a small stadium tour only hitting Boston, Chicago, Seattle, and Montana. This was my first time seeing them and they were amazing. The highlight was "Nothingman". I would definatley see them again in a more intimate venue.

They apparently cut "Do the Evolution" for time which was dissapointing but they performed so much other stuff that it didn't even matter.

I took the long and boring drive to Holmdel last night to see Ozzy for the probable final time. I’ve only seen him solo once before in 2010, but Zakk Wylde wasn’t in the band at the time so I didn’t really get the full Ozzy experience. Anyway Ozzy was...not very good but I didn’t really expect him to be. His voice has not been great any of the times I’ve seen him and now he’s had to tune down yet another half-step in order to sing the songs, and he was still off-key for a lot of them. Also he wears a tight shirt which accentuates his gut and moobs, which is unnecessary since he doesn’t look fat in most pictures. He can hide it if he tries, that’s all I’m saying. The whole set list consisted of songs he played the last time I saw him - Bark at the Moon, Mr. Crowley, I Don’t Know, Faeries Wear Boots, Suicide Solution, No More Tears, Road to Nowhere, War Pigs, then a long instrumental jam where they played excerpts from songs that I would have liked to hear in full like Miracle Man and Perry Mason, then Ozzy came back and they did I Don’t Want To Change the World, Shot in the Dark and closed the main set with Crazy Train. He came back with an encore of Mama, I’m Coming Home but he kinda spaced out on the “you made me cry, you told me lies” lyrics and then Zakk whispered something in his ear and he resumed singing but did so unconvincingly, like he was reading the lyrics off the TelePrompTer and wasn’t sure of the vocal melody. But he picked it up again and finished the song without issue. However, Ozzy must have been unsatisfied with his performance because he then played the whole song again, not missing any lines this time. I think he may have dementia. He closed with Paranoid and the evening was mercifully over. I was pretty close to the stage, about 22nd row or so, and I paid $45. Others in the section paid a lot more and wow did they get screwed, but the show met my expectations. I enjoyed watching Zakk shred all night. The singing wasn’t great but I had fun.

My friend got to open for a Queen Tribute band. The frontman is a member of another band in the region that has a HUGE following and the two have become good pals.

I'm not going to oversell by saying the guy is Freddy Mercury reincarnated, but when he did "Under Pressure" (with my friend returning to the stage for the Bowie parts) I could have closed my eyes and been transported to another time. It was moving to hear THAT song live by talented musicians, and also knowing someone I care about was up there rocking it with all of his heart for his Bowie love. I've never felt such emotion from a COVER in my life.

The entire set was phenomenal. Talking to the frontman after the show, he couldn't' wait to go home and shave off his mustache because he only grows it out for this particular act. I didn't realize the last time he did this ensemble was November 2017 and he only busts it out once a year. And that the other members of the band are all in other bands with huge followings in the area. Like guys that can live JUST off their gigs and own homes in suburbia.

The drummer, I've never heard his main band, but he was stealing the show. His face told a story with every song as he drummed. He wasn't stoic or phoning it in. EVERY beat meant something for him.

Just loved the whole night.

Ozzy just added another leg to this tour and he's coming to the Garden next year with Megadeth opening. I've already seen Black Sabbath so I think that's enough OzMan for a lifetime though I'm mildly interested in checking out Zakk Wylde.

All you need to know about Zakk Wylde is that I saw him get beamed off the face with a beer bottle mid-shred and he didn't stop playing.

So my last post in this thread was about a Queen tribute band and we just found out the Adam Lambert fronted version of Queen is coming here.

Tickets for nosebleeds are $115. I'm not sure it's in the works for me. I'm encouraging Mrs. SFH to find someone to go but her BFF is skeptical on the project as well. Neither me or BFF have anything against Adam. BFF is a purist and I have a horrible track record with attending concerts of great bands in their later years. It's almost always more sad than entertaining.

Mrs. SFH has a huge thing for Brian May, though and she keeps emphasizing, "YEAH BUT BRIAN MAY!" and I'm like, "no Freddie no care....and if my prior experiences are any indication, it'll be a waste of $230 if we both go."

My most recent hire at work keeps posting about the same concert but I think it might be too soon to try and pair them two off as friends.

Anyone seen this ensemble live? Not on youtube or television, but actually in person? I'd imagine if they are making money on this it's gotta be good to someone, right?  They're playing the Smoothie King center not some half ass casino or theater.

But so did the ticket of Cheap Trick, Def Leppard, and Poison and that was rough for about 2/3 of the show.

Yeah, the new Queen is coming here too next year. They stopped here for a show two years ago at the Barclays center which Wikipedia tells me was a sell out. I guess they want to capitalize on the movie so I expect another sell out (or near it).

I saw them last summer in Newark. I paid almost $70 for a nosebleed seat, and I was a bit hesitant about paying Freddie prices for an American Idol, but Queen was the first band I ever liked and this is the closest facsimile of them in existence. It was a very good show. Of course Adam doesn't have Freddie's stage presence (nobody does) but he does have a great voice and he's versatile enough to pull off Brian May's straightforward hard rock numbers and Freddie's foppish pop tunes (when Paul Rodgers sang with them he could not do the latter, leaving them unable to perform several of their greatest hits). Here's the setlist. The highlight for me was Brian's solo performance of "Love of My Life" because (if I can be so maudlin) this was a few months after my dad died and it got me thinking about the last Valentine's Day card he made for my mom just days before his death which read "to the love of my life" and then they played a clip of Freddie singing it on the big screen and yeah I teared up a bit. They did not do my favorite Queen song "The Show Must Go On" but they did do my second favorite "Who Wants To Live Forever" and a bunch of other songs I have enjoyed since childhood, so they hit a lot of emotional home runs. SFH, I can't say whether or not you would consider this show to be worth the high ticket prices you will have to pay but it definitely was not "sad." It's an excellent revue of Queen's biggest hits with the authenticity of two original members. Is it worth $230? IDK

I hate "I'm In Love With My Car" so much that, post-Freddie, it'd be a dealbreaker, and Queen was also the first band I ever liked. But genuinely for that price I'd personally pass. It just wouldn't feel quite right, and even if it was a great show, Queen without Freddie just isn't Queen.

I saw Queen with Paul Rogers at the Worcester Centrum and it rocked IIRC.

I think I'm done spending $50+ on classic rock concerts. I am spending $55 to see Colin Blunstone from the Zombies in a 150 seat performance arts center but idea of seeing geezers in the enormo dome doesn't have much appeal anymore. Incidentally, I think it was that KISS concert I saw two years ago mentioned in the KISS thread that I think turned me against my notion that I have to see these legacy bands.

If it's in a small venue or if I get discount tickets or they're doing something out of the box, sure. But I'm not gonna fall for spending more than $50 to see the classic rock legends of yesteryear.

Feel free to quote this post when I write about seeing the Rolling Stones at Gillette.

I thought I was done paying top dollar for legacy bands too but then I got roped into paying $175 to see Iron Maiden next summer. Granted we'll be in the pit area and not in the seats but still....

I looked at the Manson/Zombie tour dates and there's no NYC-area show so keep waiting, Epic.

Last June Geoff Tate, former singer of Queensryche, came to Stroudsburg performing the classic album Operation: Mindcrime as well as other 'ryche classics. I didn't go because at the time I was unemployed and trying to avoid extraneous purchases, but I regretted missing it, just as I regretted missing when Queensryche came to Reading, PA in 2005, a mere 30 minutes from my college, also performing Mindcrime in full, and I didn't go to that either. Well he's coming back to Stroudsburg in June and I think I'm going.

Zombie sure does hate coming around the areas that produced him, it seems.

Benighted are embarking on their first US tour ever in support of Aborted. I'm not the biggest Aborted fan after Necrotic Manifesto, but holy shit will I lose my mind if Benighted play "Carnivore Sublime."

Alice in Chains' lat couple of albums have been really mediocre after Black Gives Way To Blue.  I enjoyed Korn's last couple of albums, and wouldn't mind seeing them once.

Smashing Pumpkins are back on the road this summer with Noel Gallagher's new band. My friend bought tickets for $175 a pop and I declined since it's looking like another greatest hits show and I'm not paying that much for that.

I would go to that show but they aren't playing in Holmdel, which makes sense. The Pumpkins wouldn't draw in the same market a year later.

Alice Cooper is playing in Bethel which is the nearest venue to me but it's with fucking Halestorm. Are they even big enough to be a co-headliner? It's gonna be a weak summer for concerts.

Guess Korn is touring with Alice In Chains too but I’m more inclined for that Limp Bizkit with POD and Killswitch Engage.

I also found out I just missed future WWE Hall of Famer Flo Rida performing at the local Ostrich Festival.  Sounds like I truly missed out.

I took the long and boring drive to Holmdel last night to see Ozzy for the probable final time. I’ve only seen him solo once before in 2010, but Zakk Wylde wasn’t in the band at the time so I didn’t really get the full Ozzy experience. Anyway Ozzy was...not very good but I didn’t really expect him to be. His voice has not been great any of the times I’ve seen him and now he’s had to tune down yet another half-step in order to sing the songs, and he was still off-key for a lot of them. Also he wears a tight shirt which accentuates his gut and moobs, which is unnecessary since he doesn’t look fat in most pictures. He can hide it if he tries, that’s all I’m saying. The whole set list consisted of songs he played the last time I saw him - Bark at the Moon, Mr. Crowley, I Don’t Know, Faeries Wear Boots, Suicide Solution, No More Tears, Road to Nowhere, War Pigs, then a long instrumental jam where they played excerpts from songs that I would have liked to hear in full like Miracle Man and Perry Mason, then Ozzy came back and they did I Don’t Want To Change the World, Shot in the Dark and closed the main set with Crazy Train. He came back with an encore of Mama, I’m Coming Home but he kinda spaced out on the “you made me cry, you told me lies” lyrics and then Zakk whispered something in his ear and he resumed singing but did so unconvincingly, like he was reading the lyrics off the TelePrompTer and wasn’t sure of the vocal melody. But he picked it up again and finished the song without issue. However, Ozzy must have been unsatisfied with his performance because he then played the whole song again, not missing any lines this time. I think he may have dementia. He closed with Paranoid and the evening was mercifully over. I was pretty close to the stage, about 22nd row or so, and I paid $45. Others in the section paid a lot more and wow did they get screwed, but the show met my expectations. I enjoyed watching Zakk shred all night. The singing wasn’t great but I had fun.

Ozzy just added another leg to this tour and he's coming to the Garden next year with Megadeth opening. I've already seen Black Sabbath so I think that's enough OzMan for a lifetime though I'm mildly interested in checking out Zakk Wylde.

Ozzy has postponed all dates on this tour until 2020 citing health reasons. Zakk Wylde even expressed disappointment probably because he's missing a big payday.

I've said it before, but Zakk Wylde is a goddamn PRO when he's live. Seen him with Ozzy and BLS and he doesn't disappoint. It's insane how much better BLS material sounds live compared to on record, and seeing Zakk get hit in the face with a beer bottle mid-shred and not even miss a note is a sight I'll take to my grave.

Looks like Zakk found the perfect remedy - Zakk Sabbath.

Zakk and his touring band are going to tour covering all Black Sabbath tunes.

Hard pass for me.

Just scored tickets to back to back Against Me! shows in October. Saw LJG play recently and she did a few AM "covers" so I'm super hyped for these shows (each night is two full albums).

A town about 15 minutes up the road usually gets some decent enough talent for their Fall festival each year, and admission is always free.  They're having Smash Mouth and The Spin Doctors this year.

And just like that, the Misfits announce a show at MSG in October. Static Age indeed!

And I read Rancid is opening, and they are one of my top 3 favorite bands. I think I might try to get tickets for that.

Never was a big Weird Al guy but I just saw his concert is coming to town and his current tour includes him performing with a live orchestra, which seems interesting.

Saw it in New Orleans. It's a great show, subdued, and shorter than I expected, but it was great to finally check the Weird one off my bucket list.

I low key think he MAY have been lip syncing some parts, but he's knocking on 60 and I'm not a professional singer, so I'm not a credible witness on this.

I just got back from seeing Iron Maiden. This was my third time and my first in 11 years. These guys never miss a step and they had an elaborate stage show. It was a great fucking time.

Highlight was definitely "Flight of Icarus".

Apparently Andy Dick is a touring act because a host venue contacted one of my musician friends about doing opening act work for the schtick. Apparently they booked like 6 bands and then Andy comes out and does comedy/music/whatever.

Like I get you want exposure, but opening for Andy Dick and "exposure" has all sorts of puns involved. I'm working and not even trying to swap around to make the event. I made my concerns known and wished him the best of luck.

Alice Cooper is playing in Bethel which is the nearest venue to me but it's with fucking Halestorm. Are they even big enough to be a co-headliner? It's gonna be a weak summer for concerts.

This is tomorrow and I'm going to it. $15.50. I looked it up and Alice does a full set and crap-ass Halestorm only does ten songs. Might not get there til 9.

Billy Idol and Bryan Adams are playing in Holmdel on Saturday but that's too far away. I work for the post office and I have to be up early on both Saturday and Sunday. If I die because fell asleep at the wheel coming back from seeing two washed up 80s rockers I'm gonna feel like a real dickhead.

Holy shit, I just read that Mr. Bungle is reuniting and touring for the first time in 20 years. They (tentatively) have a show lined up for NY in February. Oh happy day!

Andy Dick did not show up. While leaving an earlier in the day engagement he was punched and hospitalized.

No word on if the supporting acts still got paid for their schticks or if anyone was actually disappointed.

I saw the Rolling Stones in concert last night. Kind of a bucket list item for me.

Sebastian Bach is currently touring playing the entire first Skid Row record in its entirety to commemorate its 30th Anniversary. He's coming to NY on 9/25!

I saw him open for GnR in 2011 and he did most of the major songs from the debut. If he does a Slave to the Grind tour in two years I'll go.

EDIT: I looked it up and I see he's also performing this ham jam that was recorded for but left off the debut. I think this is the first time he's ever sang this live.

Got an offer to go see Great White and Slaughter for free at a local casino tonight.  The one buddy that would probably go with me is unavailable or I may have redeemed.

Are you sure it was the band Slaughter or were they warning of another potential pyro accident?

Totally spaced on that but now that you reminded me, probably the latter.
