The combo of cool and talented artists doing free or low $ shows here in my area along with the chore of going to the major venues (with cost, traffic hell & high $) has basically cut out my concert going. The local colleges also offer great entertainmennt at low $ so I dont go to the big names or Staples Center type of shows anymore. I have gone to a few up in Vegas though. One of my recent Vegas faves was Chuck Mangione. It was in a small theatre, like 500 seats, and he played his heart out for over 2 hours. Loved it. I also caught a couple of the Eagles at Mandalay Bay that I enjoyed but that was like 5 years ago.
