    Went to see Sheryl Crow, Van Morrison and Willie Nelson last night in Hershey, PA. Fantastic! Van was a bucket list. Been waiting for him to come to the states for a while. Last time he was in NYC were away on vacation.

    Saturday 09/09/2017 Roger Waters - Us & Them Tour. Key Bank Arena, Buffalo NY.
    Floor seats in the middle. Fantastic show except for the politics, I could have done without that but I know that's part of his deal.

    April last year, The Who in Minneapolis Target Center. . I read afterwards that their set was set. The old farts didn't even do an encore. And why no Magic Bus? I'm still po'd that I have yet to wear the $42 tshirt I bought. And Daltry sounded weak.

    What did you expect? They're old. They were already shot when they did the Stupor Bowl halftime show a few years ago.

    It's awful to say, but I'm kind of glad Allman, Vaughn, and Hendrix died young.

    WOW - I googled it and found "The concert was Morrison's lone East Coast date in 2017 and marked the first time the singer and Nelson have shared the stage."
    Sounds VERY cool!! Kudos!

    No Moon, No Ox - it ain't even the Who anymore!!
    Could be interesting for what it is, but as long as its hyped as The Who, I'll pass

    Yea that type of hard driving rock just isn't sustainable to play into old age. I go see older bands but only the more mellow stuff which i prefer in my "old age" anyway. It's like playing football vs. tennis.

    Our tickets were only $25 each! We weren't up front but we didn't care.

    I'm 10 miles away and didn't know about it. It doesn't seem like it was promoted.

    Bummer. There were people there I saw from NY, VA, MD, NJ. More people than I have ever seen at a concert there. I guess they didn't need to?

    Not a huge fan of that venue to say the least but had to go to see Van.

    Where do you live? I'm in Mechanicsburg.

    Lebanon.

    Was it the stadium? The new arena? The old arena?

    Stadium. The arena isn't bad. Saw Chris Stapleton there last month and it was awesome!

    I'm just not really into big venues these days. I would rather go to Ramshead Onstage or Sellersville Theater.

    Federal Taphouse on 2d Street in Harrisburg is a nice small venue with decent acoustics. They get some decent acts from time-to-time. I've seen the Smithereens and Jessica Hernandez & The Deltas there, and both sounded great. No seating, though.

    Yea been there. Don't go downtown that much anymore. This venue gets some cool shows. Check it out. Going to see Rev Horton Heat and Jr. Brown in Dec. http://www.harrisburgarts.com/calendar/

    Abbey Bar gets some good acts too but I hate that venue. The worst of the small venues here IMO. http://abcbrew.com/events/

    That's quite a famous pub. Been there a few times myself. It's within walking distance of the Cliffs of Moher.
