Yeah, I did see that! I don't think you can really start policing band names...some may be in poor taste, but I think there are bigger fish to fry. I guess that promoter wouldn't want to hire the Circle Jerks either? :lol:

Robert Plant played here last week. One of the best shows of last week's music festival, so I've read.

He was here last week too, as second headliner of Lollapalooza. I heard it was a good show :thumb:

Unfortunately, I never caught that Page/Plant tour, nor have I ever seen Plant solo. I'm really looking forward to it. :rockon:

This is turning out to be a pretty insane, expensive year for shows I wanna catch... U2, Rolling Stones, Faith No More, Fleetwood Mac, Rush, Robert Plant, Van Halen, The Replacements and Muse.

Since I've never seen them, I'm thinking I should catch one of the two Toronto shows in June. Looks like this is going to be the final tour too. I may just go for the cheap seats in the rafters for $62. The only other seats available are for $175.

I wouldn't mind catching the Stones again either. Rumour is they may be doing Sticky Fingers in its entirety. It's one of my all time fave albums.

They will likely play a majority of Sticky Fingers cuts as there's a deluxe box set of the album coming out at the end of May, but Jagger has alluded to the fact that in a stadium setting, the significant number of slow songs from that album may alienate much of the audience so it sounds like mellow songs like Sister Morphine and I Got The Blues may not make the set.

I've only seen Rush twice. Once in '84 and only because my friend and I were huge Gary Moore fans who was the support for Rush on that tour. neither of us liked Rush at the time and didn't even hang for their set more than a few songs before giving our seats away to some people on the lawn. Fast forward to 2002 when they were touring behind the Vapor Trails album and playing Staples Arena in LA - day of the show I was itching to see *any* live show and was poking around on TM and found a 9th row seat and impulsively went for it. Aside from an obnoxious bunch of drunks sitting next to me, the show was outstanding, well over 2 1/2 hours long packed with a lot of great songs, many of which I was completely unfamiliar with at the time. Totally converted me. Although I hear Geddy's vox aren't what they used to be, seeing as this is likely their last major tour and they're supposed to play some rare deep cuts, I'm going to try for one of the local shows this Summer.

Not a concert but I saw Dave Chappelle last night and holy shit is he back with a vengence. It was HILARIOUS. If you have a chance to see him on this tour I highly recommend it.

I'm planning on the Stones in June....I'd love to hear "Loving Cup" live, but am not counting on it.

I saw Dave when he did the Radio City shows...he did around 90 minutes the first night, but that was also with him messing with the people in the front row, etc...he's probably on fire with that material now...I co-sign Juana's post; if you're into stand-up Dave is a must see...

I think Dave played Madison the same night as the Pixies when I was there. I .. couldn't in good conscience miss the Pixies' last show of that tour. So now I have to wait for Dave to get to Toronto. :banana:
