My next concert is Dawes, tomorrow in Clearwater, FL.  It will be close to 100 degrees Fahrenheit (37.78 C) warmer for this show than it was when I saw them in Chicago last month. Ruth Eckerd Hall/Capitol Theatre-I've never seen where every front row seat is for a wheelchair and companion. 🙃  I have second row.  I can stand and it's first row for the first two rows.  Everyone wins.  Props to them for that.  

Hi to everyone.  Read a bit above.  I have concert envy but it's happy for you guys.  Rock and Roll.

Beast In Black.

I have seen them three times before, twice as a support to Nightwish and once in a festival. Tonight the first time as a headliner.

Dawes was fantastic.  I was the only die hard fan at the show.  It is so cool when Taylor plays a lick or they hit a high point and he looks at me or us die hards...then he gets that smile.  Impatiently awaiting new Dawes tour dates.

 

My next shows are Snow Patrol and Muse in Chicago. I'm not sure which is when but both are highly anticipated!

That is a pleasant surprise! I used to go regularly to academic conferences at Montclair State about 10-15 years ago - is the show on campus or in the town?

I saw Johnny four times in my life, none of them with The Smiths. The first was when he was briefly with The The (and they opened for Depeche Mode), the second I saw him with his new band at the time at a venue so small in Philly that I felt like I was in the living room of someone’s house, the third time was when he was with Modest Mouse(!) (they were opening for R.E.M.), and the fourth was at the Jodrell Bank radio telescope observatory in Cheshire, UK - the last show was an all-day show with entertainment booths based on modern science experiments (yes, really) with Johnny and New Order headlining and closing the show (not unexpectedly, Bernard from New Order joined him on stage during his set for a one-song Electronic reunion (“Getting Away With It”, of course)).

I hope you have a great time! Does he have a new album out?

Yes @dmway he's touring for his third solo album. The show is at the Wellmont Theatre in town. This is my first time there but from what I can gather it is a decent venue.

On a side note I visited Jodrell Bank years ago. It's a fascinating place. There is an early Oasis photograph with the telescope behind them that prompts good memories each time I see it.

Yes - I have heard very good things about the Wellmont Theater. You should have a good time!

Yes, Jodrell Bank was/is a great place. It's funny - I first learned about the place by reading about it in Douglas Adams' "The Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy" (of all places). I saw images of it again when Pink Floyd released "The Division Bell" in 1994. I always thought that it would be a great place to visit. Then, as life sometimes offers, I got the chance to go - so I went at least twice (including the time I talked about above), possibly three times. Bonus detail about that show: it was on the same day that Andy Murray finally won Wimbledon. You can imagine how good a mood everyone was in on that day - great music and a historic tennis result. 

I'll have to check out his dates - thanks for letting me know!

I figured out my next show is Muse in Chicago.  I was going to try to see Mumford and Sons in Chicago this month,  They just announced The Killers are coming to Summerfest on Juy 5th.  I just saw The Killers but that is going to be a hot show at Summerfest.  $$$ play a huge factor. I've never seen Mumford and Sons.  I've seen The Killers multiple times.   Do I try to go to Mumford and Sons and hope a single seat opens for The Killers?  I miss the days it was $8.50 to see Rush live.
