Tom Petty And The Heartbreakers 7-15-08 Sunrise (With Steve Winwood)

First, a special thank you to Mary and Stephanie for arranging the tickets for last night’s Tom Petty show at BankAtlantic Center in Sunrise, Florida (aka Fort Lauderdale). The seats were spectacular (134, Row 11) right near the front of the stage. No need for the video screens or binoculars. This was my first live […]

Come on Wolfgang, You’re in Van Halen (Sunrise Concert Review)

So, I finally got to see Van Halen in concert a bit late in life, but it was at least Van Halen and not Van Hagar. I got the second show 2-2-0-08 in Sunrise Florida at the Bank Atlantic Center. As you will know (and if you don’t know, you won’t be reading this post), […]

Blue Man Group’s How to be a Megastar Tour v2.0

Having seen Blue Man Group (BMG) both in their original Las Vegas show at the Luxor and now in their How To Be A Megastar 2.0 Tour (Sunrise, Florida, 2-23-07), I can honestly say that I am conflicted. Often, the first time you see a show is usually the best — there’s too many new […]

Bob Seger and the Silver Bullet Band — Seminole Hard Rock Hollywood

Hollywood, FL – 1/11/07 at the Seminole Hard Rock Casino And first, a word from me about the venue. Never again will I see a concert there. I understand that it’s an Indian Reservation. I understand they are a Sovereign Nation. I fully support that and have no problems with that. I also understand it’s […]

The Who in Concert (Pretenders open)

The Who in Concert (Sunrise, Florida), 11-20-2006 BankAtlantic Center. With Set List. Before we get to the who, a brief word about Chrissie Hynde and the Pretenders. What a fucking awesome opening act. They need their own show. Talk about the currently reigning queen of rock, she’s right here. You can see she’s been around […]

Exclusive permission for TEXT distribution was granted to International Tina Turner Fan Club for reproduction in their newsletter. This ended up appearing as their cover article, a big honour indeed. I first heard Tina Turner back […]

Simon and Garfunkel Concert Review

This is a retro-post. I put this online 24 December 2005 using the date it was originally sent out. 12-17 @ American Airlines Arena (Miami)12-18 @ Office Depot Center (Sunrise) Musically the concerts were pretty much identical. The set list was the same except for one song early on in the show. The show at […]

Elton John — Live at Royal Albert Hall

This is a retro-post. I put this online 24 December 2005 using the date it was originally sent out. I have just returned from London where I flew especially to see a special Gala Charity Concert at Royal Albert Hall. I obtained the tickets through not that long ago. When you factor in airfare, […]
