Anybody had the chance to check out Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers live?

He's probably tops on my bucket of concerts I would like to go to. Amazing artist and band.

Red rock is just an epic venue. I'd watch 4th graders play recorder there. Well let's not get carried away. Still. If you have a chance to see a show there, go.

3. I'm not a Country fan at all. But I get that there can be a thin line between Country and Rock sometimes. My wife, who like me is a fan of folk rock and what has become labeled as "Americana" turned me on to Chris Stapleton. He's certainly Country, but we saw him at The Fabulous Forum a few weeks ago and the guy is a talented guitarist and performer who I will go see again.


Dave Alvin and folks from his milieu are calling it Roots Music. Next time Dave is in town you should treat yourself to one of his shows.

Got to give my props to Tony Bennett and his band at Santa Barbara in '08. Even at the age of 82, his voice and energy was unparalleled and unforgettable. He'll be turning 91 in August and it wasn't a surprise to learn he is still on tour in Europe now and will be playing at the Hollywood Bowl in a few weeks.


A little late with this reply, but I absolutely love Tony Bennett. Possibly my favorite of the old crooners. Dude is an American treasure.

Yeah, Dave's great, been a fan since and his brother formed The Blasters and then when he was briefly with X. Saw the Blaster open for Queen back in the day.

Queen, Freddie was the greatest front man ever. Followed by the ABB with Duane, the show was one long song. For local shows, the Ventura County Fairgrounds, nothing like music on the beach. Brad Paisley and Keith Urban were there one summer, maybe the two greatest country guitarists ever. And one year I got to see the man, the myth, the legend in David Allan Coe. If he isn't country, I'll kiss your ass.

I saw Metallica last night at Petco Park. I have seen them 6 other times and last night was the greatest concert experience of my life. They have never sounded better.

I have to say that I was annoyed by how many people held their phones over their heads to take video throughout the entire thing.

Sweet. I almost saw them a few weeks ago in Toronto, but decided to see Tom Petty instead (they played the same night). I kind of regret it now that I think about it. But it was probably my last legitimate chance to see the Heartbreakers live. Never seen Metallica either, but seeing as how they tour religiously these days hopefully another chance will pop up. How was the setlist?

Wow looks like a very nice show. Also dig the openers, no clue they were touring with Gojira. Looks like I missed a good one

Very few if anyone here ever saw Rory Gallagher, I saw him twice, this was a guy who absolutely shredded on the electric guitar, I'm sure anyone interested can see some youtube vids of him in action.

This was a guy who showed up on stage in a long-sleeve plaid shirt with a blue denim jacket on and a hour or so into the 2-1/2 hour concert he would take the jacket off and be a sweaty mess , but would just keep going.

He was all about the show and making the audience feel they enjoyed a magical time...

Here is a clip:
https://youtu.be/NQV97Yc0CoY
RAP fans, go ahead and forward to the 1:05 mark, to see and hear a master play the electric guitar...

Someone once asked Jimi Hendrix in an interview whats it like being the best guitarist in the world. "He said i don"t know ask Rory Gallagher"...

One more clip:
https://youtu.be/xomS2NqHmME
Forward to 2:22 to see some awesome slide work...!

This probably captures his best guitar work:

Hard to choose one, but Los Lobos at a small theater in Keene, NH is up there. Shouted at David Hidalgo in between songs that I was from Whittier and knew his next door neighbor. He invited us back stage after the concert and we chatted about how I used to practice with my band at the house he bought from our drummers family.

After that the wife (now ex) and I went home and made a baby.

True story.

I'm going to see Hans Zimmer this Friday, huge fan. I'm hoping I can add that to the list of greatest concerts I've seen.
