Am I wrong in remembering, Silly Girl, that you were recently at a small, very exclusive concert? You may have been the performer, but you were still there! (And if you ever find a way to give us access of audio of you performing, we'd all love to hear it!)

Very true! I was thinking in terms of other people performing, with tickets you have to pay for and that. a-hard-days-night-george-9

I remember first seeing her cleaning the underneath of her little Yamaha, all oily she was.  I was only 18 but I'd never met a girl like that.  Blonde hair, blue eyes, not frightened of oil.  What else is there?  😉  She's always been there for me in the intervening 37 years.  Mind you I do have to put up with Celine Dion, Mika and Lily Allen!  Divorce?  

Good god, Celine Dion?blue-meanie

I must say I really do dislike Mika now, and I can't imagine ever having listened to his music and enjoying it, but I was a fan back in 2007 up to probably 2010 and I saw him twice. One of those concerts was actually one of the best concerts I've EVER been to. Seriously, it was so much fun!

Mika (x2)

Sam Sparro (he opened for Mika)

Kaiser Chiefs

Noel Gallagher

Paul McCartney

The Rolling Stones

John Mayer

Flogging Molly

Ed Kowalczyck (he's the singer of Live)

Haim

A bit of Mastodon

A bit of Arcade Fire

A bit of Kodaline

Jett Rebel (Dutch singer)

Kensington (x2, a very succesful Dutch band)

Caro Emerald (Dutch singer, UK people might have heard of her)

Miss Montreal (Dutch singer)

Jacco Gardner (x2, Dutch singer who is touring around the world)

John Coffey (Dutch band, known from the epic beer throwing video that went viral)

Balthazar (Belgian band)

Moke (Dutch band)

I saw 38 Special tonight.  It was kind of a spur-of-the-moment, I'm-going-so-if-you-want-to-go type of thing.  I didn't take any pictures, hence why I'm not reporting this in the In My Life thread.

I'm Necko.  I'm like Ringo except I wear necklaces.

I'm also ewe2 on weekends.

Most likely to post things that make you go hmm... 2015, 2016.

I don't go to concerts as often as I would like (for all sorts of reasons) - but the ones I recall just now (and I'll edit in any others as my memory sees fit): The Electric Light Orchestra, Elton John (twice), Paul McCartney and Wings, Mike Nesmith, Sherbet, Bruce Springsteen, Tubular Bells for Two, U2, Neil Young & Crazy Horse.

Last Saturday night, Zag & I had the good fortune of seeing U2 for their first of 8 shows at Madison Square Garden in New York City. This is, without a doubt, the most amazing concert I have ever been to (sorry, Macca!). If this show is any indication of how concert technology is going to be in the future, I will be poor for buying concert tickets. For those of you who hold tickets for this tour and haven't gone yet, I will put the details under the spoiler.

We had seats smack dab in the middle of the arena. There was a main stage set up at one end (our left). From the center of that stage, there was a long and narrow walkway that protruded nearly the length of the entire floor and ended at a smaller, more intimate round stage on our right. Hanging above the length of the walkway was a giant mesh screen enclosure. All in all, they played on four different stages - one at each end of the arena, the third was the walkway and the fourth was inside the giant mesh screen. This first video is the opening of the show and gives you an idea of the set up. Bono surprised us all by appearing on the smaller stage to our right while the arena lights were still on. He made his way to the main stage to join the rest of the band. Once they started rocking, we knew we were in for something very special.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ANFlu5euaSo&amp;

list=PLJjYEt0EsAno4HBhgGylo94lRm9_MFt1u&index=1

This next video shows how images of the band playing were projected onto the screen both together and individually. 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=314dq1S_fPw

This video shows animation being projected onto the screen. Bono was performing inside the screen which made it seem like he was in the animation. This is not the best angle to see it from because you can see too much of the screen itself. Since we were in the middle of the arena, it was like watching it on TV - it looked amazing. 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YoG5zC2s8qs

Later, the entire band performed inside the screen while animated images were displayed. Fortunately for us, they were facing us. I could not find a video of that, but I'm sure it will surface eventually.

There were so many cool moments throughout the show, but none cooler than for this fan who was visiting from Chile. She was brought up onto the smaller stage to our right. They had her shoot live video from her phone of them performing. What she was filming was also being projected onto the big screen in real time - all the while she was receiving real time comments from her "phone friends" that were superimposed over the video. Watching her friends commenting on her phone was so fucking cool. Here is a vid of that. I just wish whoever recorded this showed the big screen as well so you could see the real time comments.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b2fjSMxnOrE

I would bet my house that, even if one is not a fan of U2, they would have still enjoyed this concert. I will never forget it. Here is the setlist for those interested.

Their 360 tour was completely amazing when I saw it a few years back in Sydney.

Concerts are my favorite thing. I've seen (in order of when I saw them): Paul, Boston, Neutral Milk Hotel, All Time Low, Steven Wilson, Imagine Dragons, Rush, and Fall Out Boy. They were all really great concerts.

Wow, thanks for the awesome look at the U2 concert @Zig! I can't believe they played October. I am happy to hear (and see) that Bono is recovering from his injuries last year.

You are welcome @sigh butterfly . I was expecting a great show, but that blew me away. The night before, on the way to Yankee Stadium, we met some people on the subway who saw the show in Chicago. They tried to explain the screen in the middle but it was so much better seeing it for ourselves. If they play anywhere near you, I highly encourage you to go.

Two weeks ago I saw Between the Buried & Me with The Contortionist and Animals as Leaders. It was really an incredible show. I already liked The Contortionist and loved BTBAM coming in, and I didn't mind AAL from what'd I'd heard. The Contortionist blew me away so much that I went and bought their CD immediately after their set (and I got it signed later on by the whole band!). I enjoyed AAL, and then BTBAM came on and blew just blew the roof, door, windows, and everything else right off the place. Absolutely insanely good. They closed with a cover of Bohemian Rhapsody, which they completely nailed. The entire crowd was singing along and headbanging, it was pretty special. 

 

EDIT: Welp, they just announced a November tour that's coming to Cleveland, but not Pittsburgh. How do I convince my mom to drive me to Cleveland for a band I've already seen...

Sounds like you had a great time Faceo. It's very cool that the band signed your copy of the CD.

Paul Simon kicked off his tour in Atlanta, and it was a great show. Played some S&G, Graceland, and other hits, as well as some longer jams. He also unveiled his new hit "Wristband." If he's coming to your town and you're a fan, don't miss him.

Won't give years because it's all a blur, honestly. LOL!

Paul McCartney. Driving Rain tour. I won third row center from our local oldies radio station! Best. Night. Evar. Saw him a couple more times when he's been here too. Not the past couple of tours though because it's been at the stadium and I hate stadiums for concerts.

Elton John. Peach Tree Road tour here at home, and in Las Vegas I saw The Million Dollar Piano. He's awesome.

Eagles. Maybe three times. The last time was their "History" tour and it was flaw free.

Prince. In Las Vegas, at The Joint Planet Hollywood.

Crosby, Stills and Nash, here at the Hard Rock Live

Billy Joel here at the BB&T Center.

U2. Zoo TV tour as well as 360 tour.

Ringo Starr. I've been to every single All Starr concert that's come down here since they started.

Rolling Stones. Steel Wheels tour. I regret not going when they've been down here since, but again either because stadium show, or bad timing. 🙁

Beach Boys. Here at the Hard Rock Live last time they toured. 

Genesis. The tour supporting "We Can't Dance". It was at the stadium, we were in the nosebleeds, but it was a great show.

Van Halen. With David Lee Roth, back in the 80s. Saw them again, with Dave after he re joined the band as well.

Celine Dion. In Vegas.

I think that's it. I love concerts but they get so expensive and I don't get to nearly as many as I'd like to. I've had to sit so many out.

I've never seen The Who, and they brought their final FINAL tour down here and I had to miss it due to bad timing. 🙁
