    Not to hijack the thread, but KK, I have a ton of respect for Sugarland. This song/video still gives me goosebumps and causes me to tear up EVERY single time I hear and see it. Whether or not this genre of music is your cup of tea or not, the pure, raw emotion an artist can evoke is absolutely incredible.

    Last night's concert: Lynyrd Skynyrd and ZZ Top, for anyone who cares....I don't think this is the type of show most HIers would find themselves attending. I, however, am old and a product of the classic rock of the 70's. Both bands played equal time. ZZ Top closed the show. I have seen Skynyrd close to a dozen times since the late 90's.....this really pains me to say, but last night was by far the worst. No personalities. Rossington seemed to be going through the motions. This is the first time I have seen them w/o Billy Powell and probably the last. Rickey Medlocke was his usual, high energy, entertaining self, but the set was just.....I don't know.....blah.

    ZZ Top was tight and on their game. The Reverend did this thing where he held up his pick, showed it to Dusty, handed to a security dude (who gave it to a fan). Billy then played one handed on the neck for what seemed like eternity. It was absolutely incredible.

    Last night, Willie Nelson and Family in Columbus, Ohio. Hands down, one of the most enjoyable shows I have attended in a long, long time. An American Institution. Truly an incredible evening!

    Got Kid Rock coming up this Saturday. Show at the Borgata in Atlantic City... From what I know, there isn't a scheduled opening act for the show, and an extended Kid Rock set list is expected.

    I've seen Kid Rock numerous times over now... From the big stage, to smaller venues. He puts on a good show. I'll be sure to give a review of the show!

    Glad you had an awsome trip, NYR! EVERYONE I know who went there said String Cheese absolutely killed it and stole the show.

    Pretty solid show from start to finish.....

    No opening act! No seats!!!!!!! He played for 2 1/2 hours. Great mix of tunes in his set. Old school stuff, old stuff, all the way up to the new stuff. Encored with 4 songs, ended with "Born Free" with a giant American flag as his backdrop. He played some songs that were a surprise, like "Fist of Rage" and a cool medley of covers and classics. Full fledge tour kicks off in July. If you can, I'd check it out!

    Went to see Michael Franti in Utica last weekend (right outside of Saranac Brewery). It was raining, but good beer, good music, good times.

    Electric Forest 2011 = Best festival of my lifetime so far. Jesus what a weekend. I'll never even consider wasting time on the garbage, shittastic vibe and scene at the mainstream fests like Coechella/Bonnaroo/Lollapalooza. The love and positive energy on display was indescribable, String Cheese played their very best set by far since returning in August and just dominated the weekend overall. The lineup was breathtaking and everybody brought their A-game. Just an amazing time, will never forget it. So fucking glad to be home though. Exhausted is an understatement for how I feel right now.

    Hate to dissapoint anyone going to future Soundgarden shows on this tour, but better to hear it from me than hear it from them on that night. They sounded terrible.

    Give some leeway maybe because it's only the 2nd show of the tour, but they were really bad. Dissapointing.

    Big 4 were great!
    Anthrax were OK, Scott Ian was missing, Sepultura's Andreas Kisser replaced him.
    Megadeth had shitty sound (Mustaine's mic must have been out of order or so?), plus too many solos, no "A Tout Le Monde"...
    Slayer were fucking great!!! They were so intense, I still am impressed!!!
    Metallica were good too, but nothing too special. One song from the "DM", one more "post-Black Album song" ("The Memory Remains"), mostly old stuff.
    Unfortunately, they didn't play "No Remorse".

    Was getting ready to hop in the thread to comment on the Crue/Poison show that I will be at tomorrow in Hershey, PA... Motorcat is at the show tonight in North Carolina. I was looking back at some past posts that I have missed.

    I saw Skynyrd/ZZ a few years back. Same thing, Skynyrd opened, ZZ closed. Only thing is, about half the crowd left after Skynyrd got done. I have seen them probably 4 or 5 times now. The last time I saw them was last July with Bret Michaels opening. I thought that show was a little dull. They played a lot of newer songs, maybe that was the issue. Skynyrd is coming back here without ZZ. I was thinking about checking them out again.

    I saw Bon Jovi last night!
    Richie Sambora came kinda straight from rehab, and that's what he looked like.
    And Jon, well, I have never seen such a poser on stage!!!
    But it was a good concert, I've never seem them yet, and I think I never will again, but it was worth it.

    This is a damn funny write up!!!!!!

    I've seen Bon Jovi so many times it really isn't funny! Some shows are better than others. I hate when he does the 2+ hour shows and more than half of it are the newer slower songs. Ughhhhh.....

    The last time I saw the Jove, it looked like Sambora needed to hit the rehab.

    Nice. I got to see Paul Rodgers solo a few years ago for free on a 4th of July. That was a solid show!

    KK? Have you seen Crue/Poison yet this summer? I am going tomorrow night. Wondering what to expect. Saw the Crue was letting the fans choose the setlist via website votong. Based on the reviews I have read, looks like nothing new or suprising.....how disappointing. Would have like to heard some of the more obscure album tracks

    Yeah Buck...

    I thought it was a pretty damn good show. As you know I have seen both Poison and Motley many, many, maaaaaannnnnny times over the years. Motley did let the fans pick the songs, and the "surprises" were "Too Young To Fall In Love", "Smoking in the Boys Room", "Piece of Your Action", and every other show or so, "10 Seconds to Love" is in the mix. They said that they haven't played those in 20 years, except I know better!

    Poison played the same set as usual, but they played tighter than they have in a long time.

    Motley was really, really good. From beginning to end... Tommy Lee's drum solo was insane. Mick Mars was pretty mobile, usually he stands in one spot. Vince sounded good.

    You'll have a good time!

    Saw the Foo Fighters tonight. Wow, Dave Groehl is something else live. Certainly one of the best shows I've ever been to.
