Still an amazing songwriter but he isn't what he was in the past.
Bummer. I haven't seen him in almost 30 years, but I saw him at that really cool venue in San Juan Capistrano where they served you dinner while they played. It was a fantastic show.
Wait, actually I did see him once in a solo set at House of Blues, maybe 20 years ago. Wasn't as good, but I do love the guy. Sounds like I'm okay passing on seeing him again if he ever comes back around.

Edit : He again is skipping Vegas on this tour (but he's still playing The Coach House in San Juan Capistrano!)

Kind of reminds me of NOFX's stage banner.

But NOFX seem to have a better sense of humor than Bach.

Went to the Doobie Bros. at the Kia Forum on Sunday. Was upgraded from the nosebleeds to the floor due to closure of the upper balcony. The sounded great. Kind of like going to a Rush concert.. you're not expecting any changes or alternate versions of songs. MM sounds great. Was hoping to get Steve Winwood opening, but he's only on the east coast portion, so we got the Robert Cray band instead. I wished MM would have done some of his solo work, but I'm not bothered that he didn't.

Saw Kaleo this last weekend at the Wiltern - sounded amazing.

Great to see a "newer" band, vital and at the height of their powers instead of all these fossils holding on their glory days.

Did he ever have substance abuse issues? Reason I ask is that a lot of my favorite artists from that era are still under 70, but look 90. I'm wondering if it's the booze and drugs, and if Springfield stayed clean all this time.
His vice is toy collecting, he has a collection of crazy rare Star Wars toys worth around a half million (he also collects classic cars). Better than blowing your money on booze and drugs.

6/26/24 - Red Hot Chili Peppers (w Ice Cube) - Coastal Credit Union Music Park at Walnut Creek, Raleigh NC

The whole thing was a meh, paint by numbers affair. Never was a big fan of Cube. His performance was definitely rehearsed but the mix was super bass heavy so it drowned out the backing tracks. Itís not my first Peppers show so I expected the short set list but a third of the time was just instrumental. Kiedis just disappeared for stretches but at least Flea (especially), Frusciante and Smith powered on. It probably didnít help that it was around a 100 degrees that day. Lucky seats were up close to the stage and the cover creates a wind tunnel.

6/27/24 - Natalie Merchant - The Riviera Theater, Charleston SC

This was just awesome. Merchant was funny, charming, energetic and sounded great. Neat venue with only 600 seats. The crowd was maximum GenXers. Benefits were that people pulling out a cell phone to record were few and far beyond and got to sit for the first half of the show. Itís a career spanning show but she starts with the more recent folk stuff before moving back through time to her popish earlier work. I was throughly impressed.

The Sun Goes Down Tour with:

Uncle Kracker he was pretty good for the limited amount of time he played
Megan Moroney-never heard of her.
Zac Brown Band-very entertaining band and would see them again.
Kenny Chesney -Uncle Kracker came out and sang the Sun Goes Down song and Drift Away with Kenny that was the highlight for me.

Pretty good overall as I am not a Country Music fan (my wife is)

Zac Brown IMHO was better than Kenny. Started at 5:00 ended at 11:00 we got there at 3:30. Long day and our "event" concert is done for the year with the exception of TSO if they are in Milwaukee again this Nov-Dec.

Re: What concert did you recently attend?

Just had a busy 3 days of shows. Thursday, I was at Summerfest in Milwaukee and saw Letters to Cleo, Tracy Bonham, and Sleater Kinney. Also caught the tail end of Eve 6 there and a bunch of songs from a band called Brigette Calls Me Baby. Friday, I saw Letters to Cleo again in Chicago. Saturday, I saw Tracy Bonham again in the Chicago suburbs. I got to meet her and get 2 CDs signed.

NKOTB - Familiar with a few songs. Performance to a backing track and no live band. They know their audience and put on quite a show.

Paula Abdul - Knew more of her songs than NKOTB. Mostly lip sync'd. Quick 1 hr show that sort of goes thru her career. Wished she would have done full song performances. More choreography oriented.

Not gonna crap on $25 tickets. Got my money's worth.

Billy Joel. Coors Field. In the unusually warm weather. Good show. Think 3rd time I’ve seen him.
