What Live Show Did You Just See?

Postby gumbynotpokey » Wed Sep 27, 2017 5:57 am

I don't believe we have a rolling/master thread on live shows we've just seen. Like the "What are you listening to right now?" thread, let's simply share what we've just seen. This should be interesting going forward.

Ok, so I'll start us off. Last night I saw Buddy Guy do a 2 hr set in a theater of about 2,000 seats. Super, super show. Glad I finally got to see him.

I saw Rend Collective about a month ago.

It was a great show. I've never seen so many instruments, some I'm pretty sure were made up. They were constantly switching instruments mid-song and never missed a beat.

I saw Buddy Guy in Milwaukee back in the early 90s. Great show. At one point, he brought up a little blond girl to sing a song with them. It blew my mind. A hell of a great set of pipes on that tiny person. She blew the roof off that...um...open air stage. It wasn't until her first album started gaining steam a few years later that I found out it was a young Christina Aguilera. As much as I dislike what she does with it, she's got an incredible voice.

On the to-do list: ZZ Top, December 29. FINALLY. Of all the bands I missed seeing in their "prime" years, the Top are the only ones not only still touring, but with all the original members.

We did. But even if we hadn't, I would have still been there! When they played 'It's Electric" I lost my mind!

Within the last month (or close, Haken was at the end of August) I've seen Haken w/special guest Sithu Aye, and just a couple of Saturdays ago I saw King's X w/special guests Kings Of Spade.

Both shows were excellent. My 2nd time seeing Haken (saw them in 2014, too) and my 5th time seeing King's X.


Charlie Griffiths of Haken played a Kiesel 8-string Vader all night, too :)

OMG, I need to get back into it. Think my last live show was either Clapton and Cray or Live Aid, too long ago to remember - both back in the '80s. :wall:

It’s a cool Marquee and a truly wonderful theater as well.

Just saw 'Tal Wilkenfeld' a few nights ago. All grown up, and still a cutey. :) I always enjoyed watching her with Jeff Beck, and many other notables. She's got her own band and is singing now. Trying to get a solo career going. Wishing her success. It's always nice to see a band in a small venue. :applause:
