    What bands are you seeing this year?

    What shows/concerts is everyone going to this year?

    We are going to see Tool in a couple weeks.
    Then Barenaked ladies/gin blossoms/toad the wet sprocket.
    And finally Interrupters, weezer, green day.

    Should be fun!

    Primus Ė A Tribute to Kings. Snagged a couple top-tier (expensive as hell) VIP/backstage tickets to go see with a musician friend of mine. Would love to see Radiohead (I missed them in October of 2019 since I was injured and down for the count) and NIN this year though if possible.
    Donít frail and blow if youíre going to Braille and Flow.

    Tool has been my white whale since 1994. Iíve had tickets to a cancelled show, and various other problems crop up. Iíve lived in Montana since 2004, and we donít get a lot of shows (but itís getting better with a new venue or 2).

    My GF and I have Guns Ní Roses tickets for this summer. I saw them in 1992 with Metallica, so I expect to be disappointed. Honestly I was a little disappointed then- they were showing signs of circling the drain (I almost wrote ďsigns of decadenceĒ then realized itís GNR and they are decadent by design). But what the hell.

    I've seen a couple of small blues bands so far. The bigger bands I have tickets for are:

    Deacon Blue, Level 42, Bluetones and Sleeper.

    Wells Fargo mainly, but at some point I'll be stopping by Credit Suisse and UBS, because those antiseptic Swiss joints always give me a little 'frisson'...



    ...What? Oh, BANDS!!!

    Wow, some old names being bandied (ha!) about here: Deacon Blue? Level 42?? Lemonheads??? Faith No More????

    Wouldn't mind seeing Primus, but I'll wait for the DVD (hopefully, there will be one from this tour). Wouldn't mind seeing Umphrey's McGee, but I don't have the stamina to stand during their 3+ hour shows.

    Going to see the Hoodoo Gurus from Australia in October at Slim's in SF. They're old favorites of a buddy & mine's. They've been around since the early 80s, talkin' 'bout old!

    KISS in a few weeks for nostalgia's sake. Saw them in 87 I think. DLR is opening and I saw him in the 80's in Rapid City SD just after the Van Halen split. Lots of Nostalgia..... . Maroon 5 in August, cause my wife likes them. Wife has tix to Elton John(for the 2nd time in a year) but I couldn't finagle my way into that one. I am sure there will be more, but all that is on tap for now.

    I guess I am out of touch as half the bands mentioned I have never heard of....lol.

    In my opinion, Deacon Blue are the best band Scotland has ever produced and I've never seen them so looking forward to it. No, AC/CD don't count and yes, The Sensational Alex Harvey Band were overrated ;0)

    We try to get to a few shows, but with the earlier show times and a kid to get to bed before heading out... I can't wait until he's a bit older.

    I'll be at the Atmosphere show in St. Paul tonight. Last show was Lizzo back in Oct. What the future holds idk... but it would be great to go to a blues or bluegrass festival again.
    I don't know why,... it's just MUSS easier to pedal than the other ones.

    We see alot of local bands that draw a good following, and are fun to see with friends.

    Tool is coming in May, so that may be on the table. It'll be nuts, though...not sure if I want to deal with the crowds.

    I really would love to see Tool and Rage. But I saw them in the 90s at smaller more intement venues. Some of the best shows I've seen. To see them now in bigger venues might be very disappointing.

    Fair play but I think Deacon Blue are better. Their music incorporates much wider styles, all of their albums have distinct sounds while always sounding like Beacon Blue. The albums are better as well. Big Country albums are more patchy, a few really good songs in a bunch of weaker ones. Ok, the last couple of Deacon Blue albums are rubbish but before that they hit the mark every time.

    Nick Cave, I hope... will be up there with both Spiritualized and Massive Attack from last year.

    Sleaford Mods is in a 450 capacity venue, unheard if they were playing Europe. It's at the same venue I saw Idles last year and that show... f%^k...almost killed me but I loved it.

    Really wanted to see Disturbed, but their not playing western Canada.
    Disturbed announced the Sickness tour, but they only have one Canadian date and it's out east. Usually Vancouver gets a lot of acts but their not playing there, Auburn, Washington is the closest. Bummer.

    Saw TOP last year, they were awesome, tons of energy.

    Maybe. But In A Big Country quickly demolishes anything Deacon Blue may have writ.

    Good song, not taking away from that, but it's a fairly simple rock song with a bit of celtic twang. Which to be honest is what most of Big Country's are. You really should buy some Deacon Blue albums ;0)

    I prefered Simple Minds to Big Country in the straight punchy pop/rock stakes.



    I don't think you even got this single over there:

I liked (but didn't love) the new album until Friday, the new songs are fantastic live, perhaps even better than the old stuff. Or maybe just more mature.

    If that's the only show I make it to this year I won't be unhappy, though I'm thinking of going to see Greenday/Weezer/Fall Out Boy later in the year if I can score a cheap ticket.

    I've watched plenty of YT concert footage...amazing as usual. The new work is pleasingly complicated.

    I saw tool back in the 2000s and i think it was the worst concert I've ever attended. I think it was the combination of the venue, crowd or lack of a crowd, set list, and maynard's state of mind. It appeared as if he didnt even want to be there.

    That's interesting, he's certainly not your charismatic frontman sorta character (and if you were going there expecting that you'll be sorely disappointed) and that is reflected even more in the new material. I saw them in 2007 and they've only gotten better IMO, though solo show vs festival may have helped improve the experience too. The band work together better than any other band I've ever seen, the music combined with the visuals was absolutely mesmerising.

    I may have been expecting too much. It's like meeting your idol and they let you down. The other two people i was with felt the same way. It may have just been that venue.

    He just left the stage for awhile during our show. Maybe he made his money and doesnt care (he has a song about this exact thing) or maybe it was a personal issue. It could have been a built in break during the show. I've never had that happen during a concert. Everyone seems to enjoy these shows so i dont want to be a vocal minority. I hope their upcoming concert is awesome

    I was excited to see that Genesis have decided to tour later this year. Well the three remaining members anyway, Collins, Banks and Rutherford. Considering how Phil Collin's health is almost certainly the last time they'll tour and Glasgow is the last night of the tour.

    Then I discovered that the tickets are £180 each! :0( So that'll be a no then.

    Tool put on a great show last night!

    The opener, Author & Punisher.....hmmmm... Not so much. Industrial metal one man band of sorts, I truly gave it a chance and sat for most of the set. I wanted to like it. Loud and distorted. Pretty awful.

    Technical not this year, but I saw Slayer, Primus, Ministry and Phil Anselmo late last year.
    I saw Tool a day before the state shut down large events, the show kicked ass.
    I have tickets to Rage Against the Machine and Primus, hopefully the shows happen at some point.

    I was supposed to see Brian Fallon [The Gaslight Anthem] and Justin Townes Earle [son of Steve] last night, tonight, and next Friday but they're all rescheduled until the end of July/beginning of August. One of the new nights is a night I was already trying to decide between Bon Iver and Lewis Capaldi.

    I am supposed to see We Were Promised Jetpacks three or four times in May and June. The night in Montreal was going to work out perfectly because I was already seeing Cúur de Pirate in a venue about a three-minute walk away. But Cúur de Pirate has been rescheduled for September.

    I saw We Were Promise Jetpacks three nights in a row in February and Iron & Wine and Calexico the night before those.

    Supposed to see Cúur de Pirate in NYC, Boston, Montreal, Toronto, London Ontario, and maybe Ottawa in May. Not sure if any will actually take place. There are some decent seats showing up due to reschedules and refunds for some other of her shows around Quebec that were sold out or nearly sold out, so I'm looking to go to those in addition to or instead of the ones above.

    Supposed to see Laura Marling in Cambridge in a couple of weeks. Don't know when that will be rescheduled.

    Will definitely go to see The Killers and Johnny Marr and least once this fall.

    Supposed to see Bright Eyes and The Airborne Toxic Event multiple times each in June. A couple of the nights clash so will have to decide which night to go to which.

    I'm sure there will be a veritable poopload of others.

    Forgot to mention two of my favorites: Dawes and Halsey. Both outside in July so maybe they'll happen.

    Don't kid yourself. There won't be any concerts this summer. We'll be Italy by May 1, and it will go on for months.

    Italy has locked down way tighter than the US, and their death rate is still 800/day in a country with a population of 60 million. Extrapolate that, and we'll be burying 4000 virus patients a day by May 1.

    This is just beginning.

    Comparing to Italy isn't the smartest thing, their population is generally older, and everybody smokes!
