I've seen:

Lisa Marie Presley - 4/29 - West Palm Beach
Oasis and Jet - 6/22 - NYC

Will see before the end of the year:

Coldplay (hopefully) - 9/13 - West Palm Beach
Paul McCartney - 9/17 - Miami
U2 - 10/14 - NYC
Joss Stone/the Rolling Stones - 10/17 - Miami
U2 - 11/13 - Miami
U2 - 11/14 - Miami
U2 (hopefully) - 11/21 and 11/22 - NYC

and if Bon Jovi and/or Aerosmith announce tours (both are expected to go out in the fall) I'll probably be seeing them too.

lets see here

april 2nd-the bob dylan show at the auditorium theatre in chicago

amos lee and merl haggard were respectable

dylans voice wasnt at its best on this night but a good show overall

may 12th-U2 at the United Center in chicago

one of the best concerts iv ever seen, great setlist, great performances

July 10th-Bob Dylan Show at Alexian Field in shaumberg

green cards and willie nelson entertaining enough

dylan was in much better form than my april show, great concert experience, good performances, on downside was he had to stop one song short because of curfew in shaumberg

Augost 7th-Bruce Springsteen at Bradley Center in Milwaukee

Different type of concert than im used to
very obscure setlist but great performances, bruce was in a good mood, very good show

and the rolling stones are coming up in september at soldier field

U2 - Boston, 24 May
[Wonderful concert, but the best was yet to come ...]

U2 - Boston, 26 May
[Absolutely SCORCHING, and I was front row! Probably the best of the Boston three from a U2-performance perspective.]

U2 - Boston, 28 May
[Probably my favourite of the three shows.]

Finn Brothers (with Mercury Rev opening) - Brisbane, 22 July
[Awesome concert, Mercury Rev were a stellar opener and the Finns were in incredible form. Hearing such superb performances of I Got You and Six Months In A Leaky Boat was worth the price of admission alone.]
"Mediocrity is never so dangerous as when it is dressed up as sincerity." - Søren Kierkegaard

Ian McCulloch the U2 fan:
"Who buys U2 records anyway? It's just music for plumbers and bricklayers. Bono, what a slob. You'd think with all that climbing about he does, he'd look real fit and that. But he's real fat, y'know. Reminds me of a soddin' mountain goat."
"And as for Bono, he needs a colostomy bag for his mouth."

U2 4x (San Diego, Phoenix, Denver)
Bruce Springsteen (Denver)
Tori Amos (Denver)
Wilco (Albuquerque)

Ok, those all happened within like a 3 week period.

And now I've hit a dry spell.

But I've got Tori coming up again this Fall at Red Rocks as well as Lucinda Williams in Santa Fe, and am desperately searching for U2 3rd leg (Portland, Vegas or Chicago).

After that, I'm saving all my pennies to stalk Radiohead next year.

duran duran thrice. (louisville this spring, nashville and memphis this summer) - saw vhs or beta open for them this spring and stimulator open for them this summer. both opening bands were excellent as were the dd concerts.

i saw def leppard last month. they were good. opening act was crap.

i may may may get to see U2 this fall, everyone please keep your fingers crossed.

i was going to possibly see someone this coming weekend and i don't even remember who it was, but we decided to see a movie instead. oh yeah sure, it's only my birthday. (i'd rather see the movie)
