What's the Last Concert You Attended?

Recommended Posts

I was at the FredRock Festival in Fredericton, NB, Canada this past weekend. Got to see Live, The Black Crowes and Gordie Johnson (formally of Big Sugar and Grady). Also got to see some new bands as well, such as Age of Daze and The Replacements. The music was fantastic, can't say the same about the weather. Local weather channels called for 7-10mm of rain.... we goth 44.8mm. I was completely wet all the way through my clothes. It was well worth it though. I was pretty much up front for it all. About 5000-6000 showed up. Got to meet Chris Robinson in the lobby of my hotel, as well as talked/had a drink with Gordie Johnson at the hotel bar after the concert. It joined the local ban for a few songs for fun.

Goods times all around. Getting prepared for AC/DC and Coldplay next month.

I'm guessing you meant The Respectables. The Replacements ceased to exist circa 1990.

Last night I saw Marah at the Pour House in Raleigh.

Is this the 5th show in a row you've seen in the last week? Really you need to get out more.

OK, well that makes more sense!! :) Actually I thought you were probably kidding, but it is so hard to tell sometimes with e-mail/internet things/etc etc.... :D

And I'll bet Steely Dan was great too...you've had a good concert week!!!

All the best--

It was a deliberate joke confusing Jeff Beck with Beck, no one really picked up on it. :D

I picked up on it but thought of it as rhetorical so I didn't reply.

I had tickets to his show last fall here in my city. I've been a fan of his for ever since he first started. I was super excited, but in the end, he canceled the show :(

Well, I've had quite an eventful month. The absolute last band I saw was Doyle Lawson and Quicksilver at Bluegrass Night at the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville (home of the Grand Ole Opry between the 40s and the 70s). Opening was Michael Cleveland and the Flamekeepers, who were absolutely friggin' awesome. Doyle Lawson was great too, but those guys just kicked out the jams, man.

Before that I went to the Grand Ole Opry, which was way, way cool. Little Jimmy Dickens made me tear up for some reason...seeing him standing there in that old-school sequined jacket, knowing he's seen it all over the years. I mean, hell, he was around back when Hank Williams was on the Opry, for pete's sake (and when he got kicked off of it). That kinda blew my mind. Anyway, I saw Alison Krauss and Vince Gill - Vince Gill got to me, too. I kept saying to myself, "That's Vince friggin' Gill! Unbelievable!" I've seen a lot of famous bands that I really admire, but it's just a really weird feeling seeing someone in person you've been listening to for as long as you can remember. It's like you weren't sure they actually existed because they've just been a part of your everyday life for so long, and all of a sudden, there they are! Alison Krauss was...perfect. That's the only way to describe it. The Whites, who were singing with her, weren't quite as good, but it was still amazing. They did a couple of gospel songs, and it was seriously like angels singing. I know that's an overused phrase, but I've never used it before in my life, so you know I am dead serious.

And before that, I saw the man, the myth, the soon-to-be-legend (if I have any predicting abilities whatsoever), Jamey Johnson!!! I'd been waiting for this for 3 months, and he did not disappoint. Great show...he just sang his little heart out song after song, and he did a TON of songs, too. He did his entire album, and then goes on to play basically another full set of covers. Now, I'm of two minds about cover songs - if you're going to do them, you better kick some serious ass, otherwise shut up and get off the stage. Obviously, his were of the very kick-ass kind, as I am not spewing acid right now. He does the most awesomely haunting version of David Allan Coe's "The Ride," and pretty much answers George Jones' question on "Who's Gonna Fill Their Shoes." I just love this bastard. :D

:beer: JON ANDERSON , last night at the Robin 2 , Bilston. this was special :thumbsup:

2 sets and 2 encores.

And you would never have known that Jon was coming back from illness. He hit all of the notes, even the high ones, powerfully and with ease, no strain at all.

Great backing from the audience, in fact maybe a little too much at times - a real singalong, but Jon absolutely loved it, encouraging the audience, and chipping in with the odd joke and a story here and there.

The fans getting into 'Roundabout' (during the 1st encore) was an experience to behold. :yay:

Good, or what? This bloke should be regarded as a national treasure. Last night's performance surpassed the one I saw five years ago in Portsmouth, plus the band he has now is something to behold.

I was in row F (left side). Where were you?
