    My wife and I went to see Jerry Cantrell last night in Nashville(mini-vacay). Great show! Growing up 20 minutes from Saratoga, I used to go to concerts all the time but that stopped once I got married and had 4 kids. Now, I definitely caught the bug and want to start seeing shows on a regular basis.

    Does anyone have tickets to any upcoming shows?

    I have to tickets to see Tim McGraw and Jason Aldean this summer at the Xfinity amphitheater in Hartford, CT. My wife is a huge country fan and I actually like quite a bit of it.

    I used to do roughly 6-8 shows every year at Jones Beach. My buddy lived on LI and he would go grab tickets to multiple shows the day they went on sale. I've seen the majority of my concerts there including The Who, Rush, Yes, Anderson Wakeman Buford & Howe, Queensryche, Type-O Negative, the Scorpions, Deep Purple, Dio, the Allman Brothers, Van Hagar, Phish, Third Eye Blind, the Goo Goo Dolls, Live, Warren Haynes, Blues Traveler......you get the picture. I love live music.

    The only time I go see what I consider "heavy" rock is if my son will go with me. My wife is not a fan. I went to Seether last summer at Jones Beach with my son and it was awesome. He wants to go see Tool so I'm on the lookout for when they will be around.

    I would have loved to have seen Cantrell. I bet it was awesome!

    We've definitely seen a lot of the same shows.

    It's easier for me to list who I haven't seen.

    Kiss
    Death Angel
    Pantera
    Wasp
    Life of Agony
    Petty
    Kravitz
    CoC
    Procul Harem
    Korn
    Motley Crue
    Savatage (dying to see them)
    Buddy Guy
    Motorhead

    Out of the bands still possible to see from that list, I really only want to see Korn and Savatage.

    I have a lot of my old concert stubs. Even have one from 1985 when I saw Iron Maiden (Queensryche opener) at Radio City for the Powerslave tour. I was 17. Took the train from Brewster, NY with a bunch of my friends. What a great time. That was my 3rd concert.

    Damn, powerslave tour. That’s a hell of a show to have seen! Queensryche must have touring the warning at that point too. That’s awesome

    Yes to both. I had no idea who Queensryche were and half paid attention like an idiot. It wasn't until a few years later that I really got into their music and then I saw them a shot load of times. I even withstood Def Leppard on the Hysteria tour im order to see them play most of Operation Mindcrime.

    Devin Townsend just played at the RAH in London. I would've loved to travel to see that show. Floor Jansen has a great voice and the new solo stuff I heard from her is pretty good.

    Floor has an unbelievable voice and she can sing so many styles too.

    Looking forward to seeing Kai Hahto on the drums too - his playing on Winterson's Sons of Winter and Stars was epic.

    I love Wintersun and had no idea he was the drummer for both bands. His drumming on "Time" is pretty awesome, too.

    He took over as the drummer for Nightwish when the original drummer had to stop because of a sleep disorder

    1976, Palace Theater, Waterbury Ct. We saw Queen as the opening act for Mott the Hoople. All the shows were general admission at this venue.

    Ironically Brian May is still a close friend of Ian Hunter.

    Primus "Tribute to Kings" tour, stops at St. Augustine Amphitheater in a few weeks... should be interesting


    Flogging Molly with Tiger Army a few weeks after that..... love having a good venue just a few miles from the house after having to drive to jacksonville for almost 20 years to see music
