The Tubes are touring this year playing The Completion Backwards Principle Album In its entirety. A couple of Nor Cal dates so far, at the Jackson Rancheria and Resort August 29th and the Mountain Winery in Saratoga September 28th. I’ve been to the Jackson venue before and I don’t like the room. It’s just like a big cafeteria with a stage on one end and they place regular chairs in rows throughout the room. Unless you sit right in front you’re screwed. Never been to the Saratoga venue before but seeing a show at a winery sounds a little too hooty tooty for me. Hopefully, they add some shows at closer and better venues as there is a lot of space between listed dates so far. We’ll see.

^^^^^ I hope that pans out KU ^^^^^

Metallica November 2nd and now U2 November 8th, that's a little too much hell hole that is Auckland exposure for my liking, but what are you going to do.

I saw Fishbone and Red Hot Chili Peepers at the 1980 LA Street Scene, they came back out after their sets and played together, it was total mayhem... 8)

I saw Steve Hackett in the end of may together with one of my two bosses. He paid half the price of my ticket as a birthday present and we sat in the first row (i also would have been happy sittin somewhere in the middle of the audience, but what the heck ;-)). It was open air in the courtyard of some castle and luckily the weather was good (the day before started with rain). I already had seen Hackett in 2017 together with my both bosses (where they commemorated the wind and wuthering album) and so i was warned that the concert would become brutally loud (crystal clear audio, but volume like a heavy metal band) and took a pair of earplugs with me. Maybe this should be a warning in advance for everybody who also will see the show :wink: . Especially the sound of the pedalbass was unimaginable loud, as if it was solid and you could lean against it (maybe that is the deeper meaning of the term air-sculpture). As in 2017 the first half was solo-repertoire then the genesis material followed after a short intermission. It was great again, stunning musicianship, though i liked the drummer in 2017 a little bit more (drummer and 2nd guitarist were replaced). Some fans complain about the singer, in my humble opinion he is great and gets better the longer he does this songs. It is funny that he seems to sing the portions of Peter Gabriel with less effort than those of Phil Collins, but that is just my 50 cents. I also can reveal some secret, where the great playing of Steve comes from (my seat in the 1st row allowed me to observe it exactly): He has a bucket of cocaine powder on stage that he pours over his hands before he plays the tricky parts 8) . Expect a great show!

Just noticed the Aristocrats are playing in Sacramento on Monday. Good timing for me between treatments and whatnot so I whipped out the credit card and got a ticket. These guys are fantastic!
