Went to this last night and am planning on returning this evening!
Great show.. plenty of tickets still available!
Same here crholmstrom - for probably the first time since I was a teenager late '70's, I have absolutely ZERO concerts in my future.
Just received ZZ Top refund (finally!) which had been postponed and rescheduled twice, and now waiting for the last of the batch to be refunded which is Steely Dan/Winwood at the Hollywood bowl recently rescheduled to June 2021.
Maybe when those shows get nearer and things have changed drastically, I'll think about repurchasing tix, but in the meantime living off millions of memories from the hundreds of concerts I've seen in my life.
Was just reminiscing with an old high school friend about The Clash at the Santa Monica Civic in 1980 with Mikey Dread opening - one of the greatest concerts and all around fun experiences both of us could recall.
And then there was Pink Floyd The Wall shows the same year at the L.A. Sports Arena - talk about polar opposites haha, but those shows also rank at the very top - 1980 was a very good year!
I could probably live off all the great memories of the past concerts I've experienced for the rest of my life, but I do look forward to experiencing many more when the time is right.
PS - The last show I attended was Los Lobos at the Canyon Club in Dec.'19 front/center with my wife, and they were fantastic as always...that makes it an unprecedented six month hiatus without seeing any live shows...damn.
It's been a long time since I've rock and rolled...
Haha nice crholmstrom, I also saw the Clash opening for the Who in '82, and like you thought they were the best band that day.
The Who were like whimpering old dinosaur grannies after the Clash's set!
On the other hand and in contrast, I saw the Who headline L.A. Sports Arena a few years earlier, and it was one of the best concerts ever!
And like you...being patient and extra cautious before I stick my neck out at any concerts or large gatherings of any kind any time soon.
Gonna turn back in to a beach bum/surfer dude this summer hanging out at the beach, and spending my time in other wide open spaces!
By the way, (and not to go too OT), but have been watching the free-for-all happening in Seattle...stay safe!!!
Opening night for the Spirit of the South tour featuring Blackberry Smoke, Allman Betts Band, and Jaimoe.
