He led off with Funeral For A Friend and we were like "this is cool, but what is it?". The first encore was Saturday Night's All Right for Fighting and it rocked so hard I thought the old arena was going to fall down. After buying the album the day after the show, it all made more sense.

    Saw him with Billy Joel at Ohio Stadium some time in the early 90's. Good show, but my problem is that I saw all the classic bands in their heyday and nothing matches seeing history happen.

    I saw Elton for the first time 9/26/80 in Lexington. His " 21@33" album had been released and so he played several tracks off of it. I had already played the heck out of that album so I knew all the songs. The show was a lot of fun. I would have loved to have seen an early 70's Elton show but I would have been a bit too young to have fully appreciated it. I wish I could have heard him perform "Curtains"(1976-Captain Fantastic) at one of the live shows I've attended, as it is one of my all-time favorites.

    Saw Jethro Tull in a double feature at the Ohio Theater in the fall of 1970. I dont recall exactly what albums they had out at the time but it was before they hit the big time with Aqualung. So they were still a bit of a cult band but thats what I was always looking for. Great show. Went with the future ex-Mrs Tucker.

    Opening band was Black Sabbath. Their first album had been released over the summer. My druggy older brother played the snot out of that album. A metal band before there were metal bands. Slabs of over amped riffs, drummer beat the sh*t out of the drums, and Ozzie was pretty good before he became Ozzie.

    Great to see everyone attending concerts again.

    We saw The Lumineers at Coors Field last night. It was fantastic. They put the stage in deep CF so they could use the OF for seating. Somehow, I was able to get OF tickets and we were only 30 rows from the stage. The entire stadium was packed not counting the seats behind the stage. I’m guessing there were 45,000 in attendance.

    On a different note, we weren’t able to see Chris Stapleton….bummer. He had to move the concert date due to the Avalanche playing in the Stanley Cup (same venue). That wasn’t a problem for us, however, he got Covid and had to move the date again. This time it fell on July 4th weekend and we already had plans to visit family at The Lake of the Ozark.

    Keep rocking!

    Cheap Trick had a break from the Rod Stewert tour and played a headlining show down in Toledo last night, they still have the energy, but Robin Zander's voice is pretty much shot, they have his son playng "rhythm guitar" but he did most of the singing. Glad we went to see them one last time.

    Re: Concert time!

    I went to two more concerts recently, The Killers and Marcus Mumford. The Killers played at Ball Arena which holds around 20k for concerts. The show was average and seemed like too big of a venture for them. The production wasn’t very good and you couldn’t hear Brandon Flowers voice that well. Overall, it was disappointing.

    On the flip side, last night, we saw Marcus Mumford at The Paramount Theatre in downtown Denver. It’s an old school theatre that holds 1,800 people which worked perfectly for his show. Marcus hasn’t quit Mumford and Sons, but he did recently release his own album. Last night, he played some old songs along with his new ones. The show was fantastic and his voice is off the charts good. Here’s a song from the night before at the same place. It’s a slower song, but worth the wait to hear his vocals at the end…..

    I've seen Wilco, Pavement, Robert Plant & Allison Krauss, and Phish over the last month.
    School's out. What did you expect?

    I saw Duran Duran and Nile Rodgers/Chic a few weeks back - it wasn't the greatest show I ever saw but it was a lot of fun and the bands all still sounded good.
    Where we gonna go?

    Just watched Elton John perform at the White House, as honored guest of the President and First Lady. No, I wasn't there in person. Watched online. Elton opened with "Your Song" and closed with "I'm Still Standing." "Rocket Man," "Tiny Dancer," "Don't Let the Sun Go Down on Me," and "Crocoldile Rock" were among the other selections Elton performed. The President surprised Sir Elton by awarding him a humanitarian award.

    I saw Old Crow Medicine Show at an outside show in Indianapolis. They were so good and entertaining I was speechless.
    I've been to dinner at Jimmy Buffet's house, and I've eaten it at a homeless shelter. And there's great joy and harrowing terror to be found in both places.

    Same reaction I had when I saw them at an outdoor show in Black Mountain (near Asheville) a few years ago. The Devil Makes Three opened for them and were so good, I said Old Crows got some work to do to top that. Well, they did it - just a jaw-dropping performance. One of my favorite concerts of all time.
