What's the Next Concert You're Attending?

Recommended Posts

I can't believe it, but I am going to see Metallica again next week in Cleveland at the Quicken Loan Arena!!

My oldest son just called and said that he got a tip from the Metallica fan club that extra tickets for the Cleveland concert were going on sale today. So he bought two, and asked me to go with him. Now all I have to do is rearrange my patient schedule so that I can go. It will be an up and back trip from Columbus to Cleveland on the same day, a trip of about 3 hours one way, so that my son doesn't have to miss any classes. I am dreading that journey. But it will be great to see Metallica again. My son says that he fears that they won't be touring the US for a long while after this tour is over, so he wants to see them while he has the opportunity. The opportunity may never come again, who knows.

Stone Temple Pilots on November 24 in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada. I can't wait. I'd never thought that Scott would get back together with the band (I also assumed that he would be the next musician to overdose on drugs).

I've seen them many times, however last year they (Scott, I mean) did not show up for the concert and they cancelled AFTER the opening bands had played. Hope you have better luck there!

U2 tomorrow night!!!! Counting down the minutes! :whistling:

I'm seeing Hanson next Thursday in NYC, Friday in Albany, Sunday in DC and Monday in Baltimore. I can't wait! I'm also seeing a great band, Stephen Kellogg and the Sixers, and maybe Roger Daltrey in late November. And I'm trying as hard as I can to go see Bruce at the Garden.

Living in the Eastern most province in Canada, I always have to fly everywhere to see mainstream concerts. Cancellation is always my biggest fear because I invest a lot of money on return flights and hotels, as well as time off from work. I have been lucky so far. I only had 1 concert cancellation (Lenny Kravitz, luckily in my hometown so I had no travel expenses) and 1 postponed (Led Zeppelin at the O2 in 2007, in which I paid dearly for flight/hotel changes, which was soooo worth it.)

Drivin' N Cryin' is coming here to Augusta and I was planning to see them.

But the one I can't wait for is...

Sunday, November 15th - The Cult in the ATL at The Tabernacle.

It's their "Love Live" tour where they play the entire Love album.

As my friend said, we're gonna see The Cult at The Tabernacle on the Sabbath. lulz.

And I'm sure it will become a Sonic Temple.

Hi tyedye!

Yes, the pics are of Metallica.

I saw them on September 15, 2009, in Cincinnati.

It, too, was a great concert.

I am going to see them again on Thursday in Cleveland!

Can't wait!

I wonder what their cover song will be this time?

It was a Queen song in Cincinnati. Stone Cold Crazy.

Metallica will be in Charlottesville/John Paul Jones Arena on Saturday, but it's my daughter's Homecoming that night.

I suspect my next concert will be taking my girls to see Taylor Swift in March; just announced that she will be at JPJ. Although I would be more than happy for Hubby to take them instead! :)

You can't miss that homecoming, Virginia. Will this be her first one?

When my boys were in high school and went to homecoming, all the parents and kids met at one house and everyone took pictures before the kids left for dinner and the dance. Then the parents had their own party. It was fun. The girls at my boys' school wore formal dresses to the homecoming dances, almost like prom. In my day, the girls wore skirts and sweaters or pantsuits to the homecoming dance. Now, the girls go all out, getting their hair and nails done, wearing long dresses. The boys did not wear suits, lol, to homecoming. They just wore khaki pants and sweaters, even though the girls went all out in getting dressed up

.

I hope that your daughter has a great time!

And I can't say that I blame you about the Taylor Swift concert. Even though she is lovely and has a lovely voice, I can't handle country music, LOL.

Thanks Doc; she is a Junior this year and has gone each year so far; she is going with a group of friends :) The girls are wearing short cocktail dresses; hers is off white with some gold "glitter" on it; very pretty! :) I think she's getting her nails done etc. too. Your parent party sounds like fun!

I like some country; I really enjoyed seeing Keith Urban but the only other country artists I would like to see live would be Martina McBride and maybe Toby Keith.

The boys babysitter/nanny turned the youngest one on to Garth Brooks when he was about 8 years old. When Garth had a concert in Columbus, I treated the babysitter and her husband, as well as my entire family to the concert. I actually enjoyed it. Garth was full of energy, and his was not too twangy of a country style. He even sang Bye, Bye Miss American Pie. Garth is about the only country artist that I can handle.

It saddens me deeply to report it looks like I won't make the Type O show after all.

Fundification became non-existent after the purchase of a vehicle.

I am truly bummed.

Oh well, at least The Cult is on like Donkey Kong!

Hi:

I just an e-mail from the JLC stating there are still tickets for the JAY-Z concert on Thursday..I may go...hopefully it will be more interesting than the Keith Urban concert a few weeks ago....I just didn't enjoy all the ballads but I did enjoy the upbeat tunes at the beginning..I was stopped on my way to my seat that night. I complained. It turns out the guy who stopped me was part of the show. He was not familiar with the Centre. Because my seat was so close to the stage, he must have thought I was trying to get back stage.. I can laugh about it now... :lol:

I see Keith's new video is from a concert. Many young females are featured while he sings a love song...I wonder if that video was shot in London because Keith said there would be filming during his gig...

PS I think I may go to see Jay-Z...I like the tunes hs sings that have a R&B vibe...

I'm going to see Steve Miller with the Les Paul Trio at Iridium Jazz Club in NYC on November 9th. Should be an interesting show, I'm sure Steve will have a few stories about his godfather Les.
