Deep Purple in August in New Jersey. 10 minutes from My Mom and one of my brothers. Should be a great show. I haven't seen them live in almost 40 years!

Where in NJ, ........Garden State Arts Center ? (Or whomever rented the naming rights these days )

Bergen PAC (Performing Arts Center)-in Englewood, NJ. Small place, I think it seats around 3,000. I've seen a few shows there and my brother has seen a bunch. Alice Cooper, Johnny Winter, Savoy Brown, Edgar Winter, George Thorogood, Blue Oyster Cult, Foghat, Lynyrd Skynrd, ZZ Top.

April 25-27: Santana, Robert Plant, Eric Clapton, New Orleans - likely the closest I will ever get to LZ live

June 9: Jesus Christ Superstar - (sort of a concert!), New Orleans - wore out the vinyl when I was young

July 5: Get the Led Out, Hard Rock Live, Biloxi MS - from what I've seen on you tube, they sound really good

These "replica' bands are keeping the music alive and that's all that counts to me and many others. Are they the same without the original members? No, of course not. But many of them are still very good. And in certain instances, the original band members approved of the replacement players and gave their blessing for the band to keep the music alive and continue on.

I understand your point, just don't agree with it. But that's just me. I will not deprive myself of hearing great live tunes. Me, my friends, and my brothers all continue to enjoy the live shows these bands put on. Whether it's the actual band name or a tribute band.

Why can't rock bands have interchangeable members? It still works, just like in sports.

I agree tomloge. If the buyer knows what he/she is buying a ticket for and enjoys it, why not?

I got the idea to attend the New Orleans festival too late - the only available hotels within a reasonable distance were very pricey. Maybe you will post a review after the show?

Re: Get the Led Out. I have seen them twice and loved them. Excellent musicians. They don't try to look like Zeppelin, no one can "copy" Robert's voice, but the singer has a great one. I wouldn't hesitate to see them a third time.

Thanks, jb126...Great to hear a positive review of GTLO! Now I am really looking forward to seeing them!! Happy to hear that they don't try to look like LZ, I'd much prefer that they capture the heart and soul of the music!

I am also excited about jazzfest, it will truly be an honor and privilege to see the legendary Robert Plant live, and to (hopefully) hear many LZ songs in the setlist! Will def post a review.

Manic Street Preachers in Oslo on Friday the 9th, I have to thank Knebby from this forum for making me listen to and discover this fantastic band years ago. It's a dream come true seeing them.

They're still about? Haven't really kept up with them in the last 10 years or so. Hope you enjoy the show. Plus, they're part of one of the strangest stories in rock n roll history: Richey Edwards.
