Almost a hundred a fifty bucks to see the best live show of 1977, 35 years later? Hey, the great Cheap Trick may be opening, but upon hearing of this show and it's prices (50 bucks for nosebleed seats?), my wallet is now closing. So, who's going to see what this weekend?? I'm gonna see a cool Blues/Roots Rock band from L.A. called The 44's, tonight at Knuckleheads. Saw them earlier this year in the Retro Room and only eight people turned up, while some Red Dirt Country dude filled the room for his show on the other indoor stage. The 44's still rocked the house that night. Also going to see the always fun Dread Zeppelin on Saturday night. Mammoth Blues guitarist, Poppa Chubby, is also on the bill. Anyway, the Aerosmith Nation can now have their thread back......

Probably just gonna see some free stuff at the Plaza Art Fair. Nice little run of local bands (Grisly Hand, Cadillac Flambe and Sons of Great Dane) from 3-6pm on the main stage on Saturday afternoon.
Get there early for Dread if you want a decent spot as they usually pack the joint. Dread's fun and would like to finally see Poppa, but just don't feel like dealing with it this weekend. Besides, I need to catch up on some REAL college football on the tv after going to KU games the last few weekends...KSU-OU should be a good one.

Pellboy, if you get a chance check out 'Quiet Corral', they play the Plaza Art Fair Saturday night at 9:00. That is the band I saw open for Dawes a couple of weeks ago at that Garden of Earthly Delights known as Crossroads. They were pretty damn good!

Yeah, otm, I noticed they were also playing later and remember you and another poster talking them up some after that Dawes show. Not sure if I'll stay out there that long, but maybe I'll just go later instead as making Movies plays before them. Also was thinking about hitting Studebaker John & the Hawks at BB's that night. For anybody that likes real rocking blues, Chicago-style, do yourself a favor and check him out as he tears it up on guitar and harp. Not sure of the cost but probably no more than $10, so a great value show for those looking to save some coin.

After they canceled their last show @ Sprint a few years back, and refunds didn't include a refund of all the Ticketmaster "convenience" fees, theres not a chance I'm buying tickets to see them again. Those 4 tickets to a canceled show still ended up costing me about $60 after not getting my fees back. Screw that.

I got my tickets Aerosmith/Cheap Trick tickets on Friday to the tune of $345 for two. Yep two. I'm still waiting on the happy ending to follow. There's gotta be something else, right?

Lets see... ways to spend $350.00 in 3 hours and have nothing but memories to show for it?

No worries, wad, maybe Tyler will throw you one of his scarves.

20 years ago, I would have killed to see Aerosmith on Wednesday and Springsteen on Saturday in the same week.
I'm still going to Bruce, but now feel no need to watch a 64-year old hump around on stage for a couple hours. I'll just live with the memories of Aerosmith concerts gone by.

You will watch a 63 year old springsqueen do his schtick but not a 64 year old Tyler? How agist of ouy!
So I guess that answers the old question about will you still see him when he is 64, anyway, it is good to know we will only have to hear from these blathering springsqueen kool-aid drinkers for another year.

On the other hand, it is somewhat bothersome to know that these geezers are getting a monthly check from the Government WHILE still making $500,000 per night, and dont you doubt for one second that they do not cash those checks. They do.

Scarves you say? It better to be attached to one of his blonde bombshell girlfriends for that price.

Indeed I will. Each of Bruce's shows are unique.
I've been to enough Aerosmith concerts to know that they pretty much do the same thing every night. That includes Steven Tyler's nightly reliance on his teleprompter to remember the lyrics to 'Last Child'.
I've got all of their albums, and I'm sure I'll get the new one in November, but what used to be a great live band is now just a shell.
