With spring/summertime coming up, one of my favorite things to do is go to concerts.
Already got tickets to see Shinedown on April 22nd, its an inside concert, which I hope is good, but the venue I am going to is usually pretty good with the acoustics.
But I do love going to outdoor amphitheaters for concerts.
Hoping some good bands come to the area this year so I can go to some more.

Anyone else a concert goer?

Ha ha.

Concerts has always been one of my favorite things. I dont go on a lot of vacations, but Im a big music person and concerts are always my little getaways, just love going and spending the day there, doing some drinking in the parking lot first, meeting a bunch of new people, and rocking out to the bands.

Yep! Stevie "guitar" Miller is supposed to be here in August. Seen him before and he can still play. Love the outdoor concerts and being in San Diego Carlos Santana plays here at least once a year at an outside venue.

I have been to too many to count over the years but lately the last few years I have been turned off by the high prices.Los Lonely Boys was the last one I went to and may go see Chickenfoot in June.Nothing like a great concert. The ultimate rush is playing in front of people in your own band. Hard to sleep after some gigs because you are so wound up.

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.

It looks like we may be moving to Santa Monica over the summer. we lived there 20 something years ago and caught great concert series in the park and on the pier. I havent kept up with that but I will check it out if we move. I got to see and even chat with Dizzie Gilespie (sorry for the spelling) in a Santa Monica jazz series so I need to go back for more of anything even half as good as that was. Of course, he is long gone now but I think they still run jazz in the summer. Long Beach does a jazzfest for sure but I
will wait for Santa Monica to avoid the driving. I can deal with the city stuff, the smog, and all the negs of city life just fine but I cant stand long drives in traffic to see a show. Just takes the joy out for me, I guess. We stopped going to the Hollywood Bowl for that reason about 2 years ago. Sad but true.

I hear you Nate. What got me was Eric Clapton announced his farewell tour a few years back and the prices here were well over $100 a ticket then guess what a couple years later he is back. Some farewell money grab. Not just Clapton but many of the old bands do this and it really turns me off. Vegas has some great free music there are Santa Monica should have a lot of great musicans there too. We have a great venue here called the Gorge its 2 hours east of Seattle and they have a summer concert series there every summer. The backdrop is an incredible slice of nature.Its an overnighter for me and a great place to watch a show when the weather is good.

So what? Id pay over $100 to see Clapton. I understand what you are saying, but just like any other celeb, their agents, the promoters, etc, they want their money and a profit as well.

To me concert prices are worth it. A good night out and alot of fun. I have paid big money to see Billy Joel and Elton John as well.
I guess I just dont mind cause its something I really enjoy is all. Not raggin on ya CJ.

Thats a good point if you only have to buy one ticket. It can get up there with more tix to buy, + dinner, + etc. Still, I'd see 100 for Clapton as well worth it. I'd love to see him play in a smaller venue. That would be ideal for me.

Summer series are usually outside and you can bring a blanket and food with you. Those are economically much nicer for my budget. When I lived in Cincinnati, I used to catch the Summer Jazzfest (at the Zoo of all places) and saw great concerts from Ray Charles to Randy Newman there. I can't remember all the headliners but there were a lot and it wasn't that expensive. Everybody was cool then, too.

I did pay well over $300 each for 2 tix to Stevie Wonder in a supposed last tour at a small venue and my point is dont hype it up as the last time you are gonna ever tour that sort of thing so you can jack ticket prices up then tour the next year. Money grab IMO.I guess when you have seen them multiple times for a lot less you start getting cynical about it.

I love going to concerts!!! I usual seek out shows in smaller venues if possible.

Next one coming up for me is Paul Weller in NYC in May.

Last one I went to was Mike Doughty last month.

Might try and go to Bamboozle down in Asbury Park or the Orion festival (Metallica) down in Atlantic City in June. I have never been to festival shows.

TC, there is literally an infinite supply of "corn liquor" here bro. Fact is, just below me is the home of (now deceased) Marvin "Popcorn" Sutton who probably the most famous moonshiner the Smokies has ever known. All I'm gonna say is, the tradition continues .................. :b
