^You mean Roger Water's version of Pink Floyd's: 'The Wall' ?

 

I just went and saw it last night and have to say that even though I went and saw it two years ago, it still blew my f%cking pants off & I'll never miss another one if he keeps doing the tours. The lighting and special effects were different this time around - and you still got the pig, the marching hammers and of course...the teacher!

 

We paid $115 per ticket to get awesome seats in the 200 level. The bar and bathrooms were close and the seats were comfy. I'll never go back to the peasant section for concerts or Sabres games at First Niagara Arena ever again!

Went to see Trombone Shorty and Orleans Avenue as part of the Toronto Jazz Festival last night. It was one of the best concerts I've been to. The venue was jumping the whole night with both the band and the crowd feeding into each other. They played a killer version of "On the Sunny Side of the Street" where the lead instrumentalist holds a sustained note on the trumpet for a solid 3 minutes. Seriously awesome stuff.

 

Here's a video from the show.

 

 

Next up is Korpiklaani, Moonsorrow and Tyr in late August.

I LOVE Keane! I've seen them live twice (once for the Hopes&Fears tour... and again for Under the Iron Sea)...

 

Going to see the Toadies (who are AMAZING live) at the end of July at HoB Orlando.. anybody who has a chance to see them, should most certainly do so! This will be my 3rd time catching them live!

I saw Marilyn Manson at the Wellmont Theater in Montclair, NJ. I'm pretty sure it was May 2nd. I know for a fact that I missed Game 3 of the NYR vs Caps series because of the concert.

I went to the "KJEE Summer Round Up" last month at the Santa Barbara Bowl. It was one of those summer radio show there were a lot of notable bands playing like Grouplove, the Naked and Famous, Garbage, and Silversun Pickups. It was the second time I saw Grouplove this year, saw them at Coachella a couple months ago, they're a really cool live band by far one of the most energetic. Garbage seriously rocked and it was great seeing Silversun again, they're one of my all time favorite bands.

Not sure if this counts but I'll say it anyway. I sat outside A&E Stage in Pittsburgh listening to Modest Mouse after the Pirates game a couple of weeks ago.

 

EDIT - My 100th Post!

Last concert I went to was Flogging Molly at the Bethlehem Sands Event Center in Bethlehem, PA (5/24/12).

 

Brothers Of Brazil opened up and they were dreadful...some kinda weird calypso-/salsa-flavored rock. By the end of their set, a fair amount of people were applauding, but I'm pretty sure they were joking.

 

FM were fantastic and played for close to two hours. Great setlist, great energy. I'd gladly go see them again (this was my first time seeing them).

 

Also, this was only the 3rd concert at the venue EVER...so it was neat to be one of the first to check it out. There was lots of room in the joint, plus seating up off the floor going back both sides of the place. And the sound was marvelous.

I've going to see Evanescence, Chevelle, Candlebox, Hailstorm, Hellyeah, and Aranda on Sunday. It will be my third time seeing Chevelle, but a first on all the others.

 

Candlebox, Halestorm and Hellyeah all put on a great live show. You are in for a treat! I haven't seen Aranda and you know Chevelle is good already.

 

I saw some opening band, My Darkest Days maybe? Bush and Nickelback, it was a good show. Not a huge fan of Nickelback, but I absolutely did not want to miss seeing Bush. They really stole the show. It was about 15 years ago that I first saw Bush at the same venue. Pretty sure the opening song they played was the closer the first time I saw them. Still amazing. The covered a Pink Floyd song(forget which one) and Come Together by the Beatles. Great set, wish it was longer.

 

Nickelback was good, but again not a huge fan. Had a good stage presence and showmanship. Glad I went.

 

After seeing Roger Waters The Wall, I think most concerts now won't be so wowing to me. That was one hell of a concert.

I saw a bunch of local bands last night. I saw The Combos, my friends band Hooray 4 Our Side, The Bohunks, and The Skank Agents... one of the best local ska bands around. It was awesome and was only 5$ with a bunch of rude boys/girls having an awesome time.

 

Tonight though SUMMER OF SKA 2012 with The Maxies, Suburban Legends, Big D and the Kids Table(HELL YEAH) and Reel Big Fish(hell yeah) so it should be fun. It is also the first concert I can legally drink at, which is awesome. I had a single beer last night when the show started cause I had to drive, but tonight I am going to get some fun stuff!

Just saw 4 Point 0 about a week ago. They're a local ska band (like, REALLY local; I marched with half of them in my rookie year of marching band in high school) and they kick serious butt. They just came back from a tour going down to Miami and back (I live in the Syracuse, NY area for reference) from which their biggest gig was about 150 people in the audience.

I saw The Offspring at the House of Blues in Atlantic City Thursday night. It was the first concert I saw there and I really liked the venue. There aren't a lot of seats so no one was really far back and I liked how if you were 21 or older you could get a wristband to leave the House of Blues and walk around the casino rather than wait an hour for the concert to start.

 

The Offspring put on a great concert, even though they had a new album released this year they played almost all older songs which I liked.
