OT: Who Did You See In Concert In 2016?
Posted by: tatters ()

Lisa Fischer and Grand Baton
Chaka Khan wsg Michael Cooper of Con Funk Shun
Burton Cummings
David Gilmour
The Rides (Stephen Stills, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Barry Goldberg)
Whitesnake wsg Whitford/St. Holmes
American Dog
KISS wsg The Dead Daises
Black Sabbath wsg The Rival Sons
Jethro Tull's Martin Barre
Alice Cooper

All in all, a pretty good year. My Gilmour show, at the 3,800 seat Auditorium Theater in Chicago, was obviously the highlight, but being front-row center for The Rides (close enough to smell Stills's BO) was pretty cool too, and as a lifelong Jethro Tull fan, the experience of seeing Martin Barre play two full sets of Tull classics in a bar and grill with a seating capacity of 180, is something that I can't repeat soon enough.


I was also inadvertently an eye-witness to a few other things, including:

Nate Ruess of the indie-pop band Fun. performing at a Bernie Sanders for president rally
The rapper Flo Rida's halftime show at a Detroit Pistons playoff game
Aretha Franklin's "legendary" 4 minute and 35 second rendition of "The Star-Spangled Banner" at the Detroit Lions Thanksgiving Day game.

I also missed some good shows that, for one reason or another (maybe my wife had to work, or I just wasn't able to find the right seats at the right price), I just wasn't able to get to. The three that immediately come to mind are:

Steely Dan wsg Steve Winwood
Bad Company wsg Joe Walsh
Sting and Peter Gabriel
