An update on the Def Leppard concert Jeremy and I are going to:

  • We received word that it will be on August 6th
  • REO Speedwagon and Styx will NOT be there :)
HOWEVER
  • Billy Idol WILL BE THERE!!! A very good substitute!!!

Sometimes I try to imagine the phone calls between people that make things like this happen.

Just got my tickets for another concert in August - the Metal Masters tour.  This one features Testament, Motorhead, Heaven and Hell (Dio...yes!!!) and JUDAS PRIEST!!!

Between that and the Crue Fest, I don't plan on being able to hear much during the month.   :P  Both concerts are at the Molson Amphitheatre on Lake Ontario in Toronto.  I saw NIN there a couple years ago and it's great seeing concerts outdoors.   I think the acoustics are better than arenas.

This is a pretty cool website that I've been meaning to post for awhile:  http://www.metalsetlists.com/

If you're ever going to a rock concert (generally harder ones), you should check here before you go if you want to see what the band(s) played in previous concerts.

We went and saw the KROQ Weenie Roast y Fiesta last weekend. We didn't have great seats, but after the first few hours I was pretty happy we weren't sitting in the front row. Here was the lineup:

Big B - Missed 'em.

Anberlin - Caught the very end, not sure what to think.

Asher Roth - Didn't do a whole lot of singing, just a lot of, "Put your hands in the air" and "Bounce!" but his I Love College was fun.

Hollywood Undead - Crazy bunch of kids.

White Lies - Kept thinking they were The Cure. I think I'd really enjoy the CD, but their music really didn't fit in with the rest of the show.

Cage the Elephant - These guys worked their asses off. Pretty good stuff.

The Airborne Toxic Event - Not very memorable. We went for a bathroom break during these guys.

Silversun Pickups - My wife's band of the moment, she was a little disappointed in their live performance. They had a decent presence, but their audio was imperfect.

Weezer - Absolutely fantastic. Highlight of the show for me. I'd never really "gotten" Weezer before. Clearly these guys excel as a live band. If you get a chance, I say go see them, even if you aren't a fan. You will be by the end.

Yeah Yeah Yeahs - Skipped this band to have dinner.

Jimmy Eat World - I think their "Bleed American" album is terrific, but haven't gotten into their other discs. Live, these guys are pretty so-so. Their performance was tight, but they just don't have much personality on stage.

Kings of Leon - Talk about personality, these guys had tons. Their set was my second favorite of the day. Great rock and roll.

Rancid - Terrible. We left part way through their set.

Travis Barker and DJ AM - Didn't stick around for these guys. After seven hours, my head felt ready to explode. More lame excuses: we wanted to beat the traffic, and we didn't want to make the babysitters wait up too late for us.

One amazing part of the event was the turnaround between sets. The stage was built like a lazy-susan. The moment one band finished, the stage rotated and the next band started up. I doubt there was more than 120 seconds between some of the performances. It was great they were able to fit so much music in, but it really was exhausting and took its toll on my ears.

They were in Toronto a while ago but I didn't get to see them.  I did hear one of their songs and it was pretty good. 

This really is the time of the supergroup though since we also have Them Crooked Vultures which is John Paul Jones, Dave Grohl and Josh from Queens of the Stone Age.

A few friends and I went to go see Alice in Chains last night. We went. But we didn't see them. Waited in line, in the snow, for about 30 minutes when they announced that the show was postponed to April 20th because the lead singer was sick.

To which I said "Sick? I thought he was dead!" [rimshot]

Feeling pretty good about my comedic triumph, we headed back into the parking lot. There were still plenty of people heading towards the venue wondering what was going on. One guy inquired of me, and I told him what happened, to which he responded "Well, thank you SIR."

Ugh. You know you're getting old when you go to an Alice in Chains concert and someone calls you SIR.

Layne probably just channeled that guy and was mocking me.

We're old because we know who Layne Staley is.... 

The kid that called you sir was 5 years old when AIC was popular.

Mark,

Rest well in the knowledge that you could have kicked his ass.

We should be pleased that someone at a concert had the manners that young kid showed.

I know! I totally want kids to show older people respect.

I just don't want to admit I'm the older one that deserves the respect!   :P

A few friends and I went to go see Alice in Chains last night. We went. But we didn't see them. Waited in line, in the snow, for about 30 minutes when they announced that the show was postponed to April 20th because the lead singer was sick.

So last night was the rescheduled Alice in Chains show here in Charlotte, NC. No snow - but it was raining - and it not only had been rescheduled - but the venue had changed from the indoor one, to the outdoor one (the pavilion has both right next to each other). Slightly cold rain with some slightly chilly wind - it wasn't pretty waiting for the show to start. The rain was on and off, sometimes harder than others - we were deciding how much rain would drive us away. We made the decision that if they remotely sounded bad, we would head out.

Well - they delivered - and sounded awesome. Easily in my top 5 of "bands that sound like the album" - but not to the point where it sounded like a tape recorder was playing. It definitely sounded live - but amazing.

Layne's replacement (not to insinuate he has a replacement...) William DuVall actually does sound a quite bit like Layne. Add to the fact that Jerry wrote most of the music and is really considered a co-singer as opposed to a backup-singer - and AiC 2010 sounds every bit as much as they did in 1992. William and Jerry's harmonies were top-notch.

Off the top of my head, here are the songs played:

All Secrets Known
It Ain't Like That
Them Bones
Dam That River
Rain When I Die
Check My Brain
We Die Young
Again
Black Gives Way to Blue
Dirt
It's Your Decision
Got Me Wrong
Sickman
No Excuses
A Looking In View
Angry Chair
Man in the Box

As awesome as the show was - we're not 20 anymore and didn't want to wait in a line of cars to leave. After 80 minutes or so - we decided that as soon as Man in the Box, Rooster, or Would? completed, we would head out. I don't know what was played after Man in the Box (it was apparent they were doing the obligatory 'wait for the crowd to cheer encore'), but we all felt we got an amazing show, and didn't feel like we left too early, considering all we heard.
