Hate to burst your bubble, gatorgorilla, but alas Sigh... no Steve Perry reunion. Read moreClick for link. But I gotta tell you, Arnel Pineda does a **bleep** good job at fronting Journey. Journey usually comes through the venue I work at when they are touring (including this past summer) and they still put on a good rockin' show.

Because of my job, I have seen (and helped set up) quite a few artists, but on my bucket list whom I have never seen live would have to be AC/DC.

What I would like to see is Tony Bennett with Lady Gaga.  I've seen Tony Bennett in concert and have had no desire to see Lady Gaga in concert, although I like her a lot.  I really can't abide the screaming crowds.  I have the feeling that the two of them together would be more to my taste and I might be able to hear the music.

 

By the way, I have also seen some performers "past their prime" and have still enjoyed the music.  I particularly enjoyed the Kingston Trio and the Brothers Four several years ago in Las Vegas.  


Not sure about Lady Gaga     but Tony Bennett  yes : )

Note to Diane:  it's great that you are finally going to see Bob Dylan in concert - have a great time!


That would be a good one!  

Thanks!   The older I get, the more picky I get about who I see, where I see them etc..  Seeing Bob at a theater in our Playhouse Square area.. hopefully it will a good venue considering : )

Lynyrd Skynyrd

Marshall Tucker

Weather Report with Jaco Pastorous

Deep Purple with Blackmore

Deep Purple with Tommy Bolin

Elton John with his original band

Jeff Beck with the Jan Hammer Group ( I saw Jeff once in NJ but all I remeber was the rock n' ryeSmiley Wink


Well that is a darn good list : )   but I have to take issue with what you say... I have seen many artists long after their prime including Aerosmith my all time favorite band.   I think that this pretty much sums things up  " Loving eyes can never see"  anything besides the beauty of the music : )

We have talked before about those groups and artists that somehow we missed seeing in all these years of being music lovers.

 

Sometimes we finally get our wish and sometime we don't.

 

Who is on your list?   Do you think you will get to see them?


I will never get over feeling regret at never seeing Gary Moore in concert.  He was one of my favorite blues guitarists  and I lost my chance a while back.  RIP Gary.

 

I do have to report that I have never seen Bob Dylan live but I will be taking care of that in November as my sister really wanted to see him and we have tickets.  I told her that his shows have received some mixed reviews but she said. he is Bob Dylan  and that was that : )
