King Crimson on July 1st in Berlin. As probably always an astounding three hour concert. Yes, it was a concert. Not a show. No fog, no laser weapons. Simply unbelieveable music and musicianship. The best of what the 21st century has to offer.

Unfortunately there will be no European tour next year because of problems caused by shitty Brexit.

Great setlist, imo:

On the Way Home
Homefires
Love Is a Rose
Only Love Can Break Your Heart
Cowgirl in the Sand
Mellow My Mind
Ohio
There's a World
Birds
Are You Ready for the Country?
After the Gold Rush
Tonight's the Night
Speakin' Out
Angry World
Love and War
Peaceful Valley Boulevard
Out on the Weekend
The Needle and the Damage Done
Heart of Gold

Encore:
One of These Days
War of Man
Tumbleweed

Three concerts for me now.

Friday July 20th - Five Points Amphitheater, Irvine, CA
Jeff Beck & Paul Rogers w/ Ann Wilson
Vinnie's back in Jeff's band. Paul is supposed to focus on the Free era of his career. Never seen Heart, so Ann's set should be cool.

Sunday August 12th - Greek Theater, Griffith Park, LA, CA
Alice Cooper w/Ace Frehley

Saturday December 1st - Fonda Theater, Hollywood, CA
Dweezil Zappa Choice Cuts Tour

Got tix for George Clinton at Petrillo Band Shell in Grant Park, Chicago. They are saying it could be a final tour.

I had decided to flag a road trip to the hell hole that is Auckland to see Bob Dylan on August the 26th, and I was just getting comfortable with that decision, when Ms. Auckland advised me yesterday that we now had tickets to Bob Dylan and I would be paying a visit to the hell hole on August 25th, 26th and 27th.....

Radiohead, two weeks ago, Madison Square Garden.

Five stars (highest rating) in every way: performance, sound, lighting, connecting with the audience, etc.

Been trying to see this band for 20 years, but life always managed to get in the way.

A band absolutely on top of their game. In terms of arena rock concerts, the show was right there with the best I've seen, and this old dawg has seen a few. They change-up their setlist nightly, occasionally improvise, and give it all they have. Dare I say my mind was blown several times during the show.

Like the best live bands I've seen, the concert performances surpassed the studio versions.

Most of all, they succeeded in the fact that now I hear their music in greater detail and vivid color, a more intense listening experience than before. If that makes any sense.

Great review and pic Mr. Jar

If Radiohead ever drift on down this way I'll be going.

I'd never paid much attention to Radiohead, then back in June I went along to see/hear the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra perform, among other things, Jonny Greenwood's Suite from the film There Will Be Blood which was pretty impressive. They played some Haydn and a dash of Brian Eno and something by Arvo Pärt, all in all an interesting evening. I've since borrowed A Moon Shaped Pool from my cousin, he's not getting it back.....

Just got tickets to Joe Satriani, performing December 4th.....and the fast approaching Bob Dylan, taking to the stage August 26th.....

Well, I’m glad that’s finally out of the closet. Now we know the true meaning of Blowin’ In The Wind.

Hi, its me I'm Back.....

We had a magnificent 650km (400 mile) drive up the island, perfect driving conditions, the traffic played the game for the most part, and amazingly for this seemingly endless winter there was great sun and no rain, we had the spectacular winter wonderland vistas, with an abundance of snowcapped mountains and a frosting of roadside snow across the plateau. Played gps roulette on the return trip, the electric bastard zig zagged us 750km's (460 miles) down the west coast which made for some exciting zero traffic speedy driving and a different set of snow capped mountain ranges and a selection of stunning ocean views.

The concert was excellent, a pure old school rock 'n' roll show that had an almost cabaret vibe.
There was a total ban on any phones tablets or cameras of any kind, which was great, other than a little mood lighting that was altered very subtly between songs, there were no special effects flashing lights or video screens of any kind. The six piece band (including Bob) were really really good, just so together, it was a thing of beauty. Bob provided all the vocals, blew his harmonica and except for one song performed the entire show behind a grand piano facing the audience. The bass guitarist whipped out a stand up double bass on a number of songs and also used a bow a couple of times to great effect, the keyboard player also played lap steel guitar and violin. Adding to the cabaret theme, the band were all dressed alike in cream suit jackets that had a slight glitter effect which was perfect (anymore sparkle would have triggered the cheesy scale) the casual black trousers made for a nice contrast. The rhythm section were wearing black fedora hats. Bob had a slightly darker glitter free suit jacket and wet-look black trousers, and no hat.

Set List

Things Have Changed
It Ain't Me Babe
Highway 61 Revisited
Simple Twist of Fate
Summer Days
When I Paint My Masterpiece
Honest With Me
Tryin' to Get to Heaven
Make You Feel My Love
Tangled Up in Blue
Pay in Blood
Early Roman Kings
Desolation Row
Love Sick
Don't Think Twice, It's All Right
Thunder on the Mountain
Soon After Midnight
Gotta Serve Somebody

Encore:

Blowin' in the Wind
Ballad of a Thin Man

Some of the songs that were played had undergone an arrangement overhaul, a few to such a degree that they were unrecognizable as the songs that we know and love. After the show I heard someone complaining that they didn't play blowin' in the Wind, oh yes they did, but not as he knew it. That being said, all the songs were performed with great gusto, seeing Bob Dylan, albeit behind the piano, rocking the arse off Highway 61 Revisited, made my night.

The music was the only audible interaction between the band and the audience, they came, they played they took a three minute intermission, came again, played and left for thirty seconds, came again for the encore, played took a bow and left.....without a word, not even a goodnight hell hole that is Auckland.....like some anonymous nightclub band three streets off the strip in Las Vegas.....

The audience were very enthusiastic, we were seated 12 rows from the stage, a little left of center, and best of all Ms. Auckland had a great time, as did I.....

Surprisingly, once again I have escaped thhti Auckland still single and with my life..... 8)
