    So what is everyone going to see this year? I just got Metallica tickets for Chicago. I would love to see them in the smaller venue in Columbus in May, but I really have no interest in the full 3 day festival and the GA admission isn't that appealing to me. I'm debating going to Vancouver and Seattle for GnR over Labor Day. I want to go to U2 but haven't pulled the trigger on tickets yet. I'm hoping Pearl Jam announces a couple shows. I'm still debating the Megaticket for the venue in my hometown.

    I love live music and have a wide range of tastes. So who are you all looking forward to coming to your home town or traveling to.

    I'm heading to Vegas in April for the New Found Glory show at House of Blues. They are playing two of my all time favorite albums live.

    We are going to the Big Hair Metal festival in Colombia (M3) with bands like Ratt, Warrant, Great White, Cinderella, Dokken, Vixen. Bang Tango, Loudness, etc. then the Classic Southern Rock Festival that follows it with Charlie Daniels, Molly Hatchet, Outlaws, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Blackfoot etc. We're going to see Journey in Vegas, and The Choir in Va. Would like to see the Foreigner/Cheap Trip/Led Zeppelin Tribute during the summer as well. Iron Maiden is coming to town also, but the tickets are insanely expensive. And, I must say that I am going crazy with the fees the ticket services add- almost 25% at times! Kinda like the resort fees in Vegas. Tickets $100 each, plus $20 convenience fee plus $5 venue fee! Iron Maiden tickets were $200 plus $30 convenience fee! Five hundred bucks for SWMBO and me! I dunno......

    I'm seeing Journey and Asia at Treasure Island (MN) in July.

    My favorite concert will be my minions' spring concert at school in May, though. They are my favorite rockstars! :D

    The only show I have on my docket is Joe Bonamassa at the Pabst Theater in Milwaukee in a couple of weeks. My spouse is going to see Neil Diamond at the end of May in Chicago with her sister and our 2 daughters. I am renting them a limo as a thank you for not taking me along! :woot:
     
    Maybe not this year. Looking forward to 2021!

    We have tickets for Tom Petty in Austin in May. Wanted to get tickets to his show at Wrigley and make a vacation of it but they sold out very quickly.

    Funny story - a good friend of ours has a 16 year old daughter who for some inexplicable reason is a big Neil Sedaka fan. How strange, right? But she loves him. So we are going with them in April to Fort Lauderdale to see Neil Sedaka live. I'm 50 and he's a bit before my time even, but it's a fun excuse to get away to FL for a bit. Tagging on a couple days in Ft Myers to visit my parents and sister.

    Hoping to see Bruno Mars when he comes to Austin this summer but don't have tickets yet.

    Every two summers or so, my sister, myself, and a mutual friend live out our childhood dreams and hit up NKOTB when they go on tour. This year they're on tour w/Boyz II Men and Paula Abdul. So we'll most likely go to Philly for that one.

    wife rickrolled me. I got dragged to a Rick Astley concert at Mohegan Sun about a week ago.
    I was surprised. It was a good show. He even played the drums and sang (at the same time) Highway to Hell.

    The Bonamassa show will be great.

    I'm going to see Petty again this year, he's always great. Otherwise there isn't much out there that I want to see in 2017. So far anyway

    No biggies lined up yet - waiting for summer events locally to open up and will go see a few. I have tickets for Southside Johnny at Seneca in couple weeks. Saw Chris Rock last night at Fallsview if that counts...
