Concert Season is off to a Bad Start

The Handy Husband and I enjoy going to concerts, and we usually drag the kids along. So they've heard a lot of "classic" rock.

We were looking forward to Unwigged and Unplugged next week. What's that? It's Spinal Tap, sans hair and amplifiers.

But the HH came home today, saying, "Did you know it was cancelled?" Huh? Wha? Nope? However, after a little on-line research I discovered my Visa had been credited on March 19th. So it's been cancelled almost a month... (due to low sales, because they're now at a smaller venue in a giant city on the same night...) I'm a little pissed at Ticketmaster who could have easily sent an e-mail that the show was cancelled. They put through the refund with no problem. Frank just this minute told me someone told him it was cancelled, but did he tell me?
NO.

Anyhoo, we have no concerts scheduled until August 23rd. And then -- hopefully things will get better because we are going to....

AEROSMITH! Somewhere in rows 7-10! W00T!!!!!! Ernest is especially pleased because we never took him to Aerosmith before. (Three years ago he was 10...and still didn't like loud noises. And then they cancelled last year's tour. Yadda yadda yadda.)

You would have really been upset if you'd showed up at the appointed hour--it's pretty unbelievable.

Walk this way!

Damn, Cheri said what I was going to say.

Dave Matthews Band is doing two hometown shows this weekend but I'm not going because I have to work both nights.

U2 is coming this fall but neither Pete nor I could get excited enough to get tickets. Mostly because it's a stadium show, which we don't like.

So right now, we don't have any concerts planned, which is just not right.

Aerosmith...now that brings back some classic memories.

Hope you have a blast.

I saw Spinal Tap in the early 90's in a theater in San Francisco... very fun. I agree Ticketmaster could generate an automatic email if a show gets cancelled!!

We have tickets for U2 in October. We're kind of wary because it's a stadium show, but I think our seats are pretty good and I've never seen them live (The Hubby saw them in a smaller venue a couple of years ago - AWESOME), so I am really excited about it.

I mean, a live concert of Spinal Tap ... not the movie ...

Aerosmith.....oh man....when I was 16 and driving my VW Beetle, I had an 8TRACK of Walk This Way that I swear NEVER came out of the player for about 3 months!! LOVED that!!

Saw them over here about 16 years ago...man, they rocked the island!!
