That's awesome, Dex ...

I've never seen The Cure perform live but I have their 2002 Berlin Trilogy concert blu-ray on constant rotation in my home theatre room - absolutely amazing!!!

The 1975 @ The Theater at Virgin Hotels Las Vegas

I've only recently gotten into them, thanks almost entirely to their new Jack Antinoff produced album which is absolutely fabulous.
They had this really cool Broadway like set they performed on. Did two acts, the first was almost entirely the new album, the second after a costume change (seen below) was their Greatest Hits stuff. Terrific show. Matty Healy clearly has issues. He drank from a flask literally non-stop all night. Kind of amazing he could still perform.

Machine Head in Joliet on Black Friday. No openers, just 2+ hours of Machine Head. They performed some fun covers including great versions of Creeping Death and Raining Blood.

I saw Chris Isaak last weekend and he gave a phenomenal show. It was a Christmas show so he played a half dozen or so Christmas tunes and a whole lot of his back catalog. His voice is still phenomenal and he can hit and hold high notes for an impressive amount of time. He has a great self-deprecating sense of humor, he had on a somewhat signature suit at the start of the show (think mariachi) and quipped that he was so thankful for people coming out to support live music and how otherwise someone would mistake him for a figure skater. He also joked about being a 'semi-professional musician" I consider myself slightly above a casual fan of his and don't listen to him too much but I came away very impressed and wish I has seen him sooner.

Direct opener for Amon Amarth was Carcass, really old school death metal from the late 80s into early 90s.

I have been considering seeing them when they hit Charlotte next month as I haven't been to one of their shows since 1999/2000(The Burning Red tour). But that would be a 4 hour round trip(plus the show itself) on a Thursday.

Take the day off, and get the soundcheck VIP and make a full day of it, you'll get a lot of free swag and get to hang with the band.

Re: What concert did you recently attend?

Saw Black Anvil/Immolation/Dark Funeral/Cannibal Corpse two weeks ago at Showbox in Seattle. Black Anvil was ok, wasn't too big of fan and didn't leave becoming a bigger one. This was the third time seeing Immolation this year and they are just as fantastic as always. Really are one of the most underrated OSDM bands. Hadn't really listened to Dark Funeral much but left a fan, will pick up some of their stuff. I actually just started listening to Cannibal Corpse more over the last year. I had a good deal of their discography but just never really gave it a proper listen. I know alot of people consider their early albums the classic CC but I actually prefer the George Fischer stuff. Great live band.

This was my first concert after moving back to Seattle 11 years after I left. I didn't realize the parking garages closed at midnight, so I unfortunately I had to miss about half of CC set to get my car out and head home. Lesson learned, need to figure out street parking downtown. Why a parking garage closes so early on a weekend is beyond me.
