    Alright, we did this last year. What's everyone got lined up, and looking forward to, for summer shows?

    Me, I started in March with a warm up. UFO and Saxon. Great show. I've been a Saxon fan since 1980. Saw them in '86 and then again in 2015 opening for Priest. They still sound great live and are a good torch bearer for the NWOBHM (not that it is New anymore). UFO, my first time. I've seen Schenker a bunch of times, and he always plays several UFO songs. But, I've never heard them live with "that" voice. They were solid. I didn't care for the mix. Phil's vocals should have been pushed up in the mix (IMO). I struggled to get his voice at times. At least clearly. Love Vinnie Moore, but I could have done with a little less of him in a couple of spots. Still, a great show!

    Summer line up:
    Iron Maiden/Ghost
    Paul Shaffer and the World's Most Dangerous Band
    Paul McCartney
    Ted Nugent
    Deep Purple/Alice Cooper
    Hamilton

    Thinking about adding:
    Pat Travers/Rick Derringer
    Toto
    The Dead Daisies

    Been to a handful of shows already, most recently Sabaton/Eyes Of Leaves/(we missed the first band because of the line at the venue).

    Will be leaving momentarily to head to Styx about 90 minutes away. Nice small venue, and we got pretty good seats. Even sprung for the VIP march package.

    Tom'w night is Mastodon, but it's supposed to be chilly and it's an outdoor show, so I think we're going to see Mitch Fatel instead.

    Sunday - Buddy Guy.

    Tuesday - possibly Fozzy.

    I've had to lay low on the concert front because we have Penguins tix, and I have to be wary of the playoff schedule. Plus my wife and I both have upcoming surgeries, so that has some impact (fortunately very minor this time). But I have locked in Olivia Newton-John, Marshall Tucker Band and Davy Knowles later this summer. Just found out UFO is coming this fall, so that will depend on next season's hockey schedule. Looking into the possibility of a Detroit/Indy overreach in October to catch a couple Vintage Trouble shows, too.

    Kraftwerk in June
    Midnight Oil in July
    Steely Dan in October

    I'd see Toto in a heartbeat if they played London, but their entire tour is North America only at the moment...

    Looking very forward. The projections for it are all in 3D, apparently, you get your glasses at the door...

    I added Morris Day and The Time to my list of shows. I twisted a buddies arm into seeing them.

    I have no committed plans for big name bands. I would like to catch a few local bands as I wander this world.

    One venue around here just announced five shows for later this year - Ann Wilson, Huey Lewis, Robert Cray, an oldies show w/Gary Puckett and several others, and Whose Line Is It Anyway with Ryan Stiles and Greg Proops. Whose Line is close to a definite for me (have to check a conflict).

    Another venue announced UFO - I have to wait until the new hockey schedule comes out before I can commit to that.

    So far...

    Tears for Fears + Hall & Oates(this one is not my pick:))
    Tool(addict)
    Roger Waters(bucket list - never been)

    I'm feelin' I need some blues of some sort. It's been a good while since I've seen a good band. Couple fests coming, I'll have to scroll thru lineups.

    Hmmm, Santana is tempting. I'd been hoping for a IV lineup tour to happen & roll this way. Have you been to that venue before?
