Zoots, if you have the chance to go, GO.

If you don't, I'll bitch-slap you.

I can't think of a better way to spend $500.

Unless it's hookers and blow, man. That's really the best way to spend $500.

It's not like you're blowing $500 on shitty bands...

I saw Bruce and the E Street Band TWICE in the past 4 months (I know, compared to some superfans, that's nothing, but whatever), about $230 or so, since both times were GA tickets. That's on top of the other concerts I've seen this year. Examples: Saw the Flaming Lips on New Year's Eve, ticket was $15, but plane was $330, just saw Explosions in the Sky, ticket was $15, bus ticket was $100.

If you love (or even just like, in the case of Bruce) the music, don't worry about the money.

You people are a bad influence on my finances.

And it's not like you're spending $500 in the summer. You're spending $500 now and by the time the summer rolls around, most of it will be paid for

Unless you're putting in on a credit card and then . . . well, just view it as you're helping a sluggish economy

Okay.... let's do some accounts, shall we? (SNL church lady voice)

Tom Petty 6/18 $72.45
REM 6/19 $83.60
Eddie Izzard $66.42

And then I'm gonna get Pearl Jam tix this friday...

Pearl Jam 6/25 $100 (roughly, assuming I'm lucky enough to get GA)
Bruce Springsteen 7/31 $78.20
The Unforgettable Fire 5/3 $30

All prices include ticketbastard fuck me in the ass charges!

Okay so total = $430.67

This is of course provided I don't see anyone else. Looks like a fun summer!

I haven't seen REM in 20 years. It's been since the Green tour.
I just scored 4th Row Center tickets to REM June 1st in Berkeley. I lucked out on TM when they added a second show. Woohoo!

Hopefully, I'll be able to rid myself of Saturday night's tickets. Face value of course!!

I'm officially envious of you all! So many concerts, so close to where you live. We’re a tiny blip on the radar screen here for most bands, so the greats are few and far in between. I’d gladly be blowing all of my money on concerts…ones other than George Jones and Willie Nelson. (God bless Willie and his braids.)

Speaking of greats, I ended up paying a lot to land some Bob Dylan tickets for my mom and aunt, along with my own. I’m afraid to look at my credit card statement to see the exact total!

I seriously have to renew my passport. I can go anywhere in the world and see PJ right next to the stage--assuming it's a Ten Club associated gig. I have to start taking advantage of that privilege.

Zoots, you're going to love Springsteen. I know he divides a lot of people, and some don't care for him, but the show I saw with my dad in '92 remains the greatest concert I've ever seen, PJ and U2 included. I've never witnessed someone own the stage and crowd like that before...completely mesmerizing, right from the first strum of his guitar. He's definitely worth the $78.20. If you end up thinking otherwise, send me the bill.
