Have any of you ever been to Country Thunder in Florence, AZ?
Basically, it's a weekend long country show, where a whole farm opens up it's land for camping. So you camp out and drink and party and go see concerts......or just drink and party. I've been to this show 4 times, and I think the only person I actually saw play was Chris Ledoux. However, if you live in AZ this is definitely a scene not to miss. It's kind of redneckstock...."In England a king hath little more to do than to make war and give away places; which in plain terms, is to impoverish the nation and set it together by the ears. A pretty business indeed for a man to be allowed eight hundred thousand sterling a year for, and worshipped into the bargain! Of more worth is one honest man to society and in the sight of God, than all the crowned ruffians that ever lived."

Rory Gallagher Royal Oak Music Theater winter 1979.
Had 10th row for the first show.
Traded a few bucks and um... stuff and got 1st row center for the second.
I've seen Clapton, Beck, Page and a lot of others live but Rory was the best I've ever seen.

My favorite was the Fleetwood Mac "Dance" tour in Atlantic City, NJ. I called ticketmaster early... hung on the phone, and figured my odds of a good seat were best if I bought just ONE ticket. I had front and center... the very best seat in the house, at ticketmaster price. I didnt believe it until I was escorted allllllllll the way to the front. The people sitting next to me had paid outrageous broker prices. I believe this show was either the last, or the second last in the tour, and it was pretty sentimental for the band. Stevie Nicks cried... Lindsay finished a song for her because she was crying. Lindsay was incredible on guitar.. un friggen believable, and I had the very best seat in the house... i could see all of the stuff that the 5th row could not see. Me, and the girl next to me, stood up for almost the whole show.

Wow. I've seen a few concerts in my day but it's tough to pick a favorite. Each had good and bad aspects. The one I won't pick would be Tom Petty. Saw him and Nick Lowe in Philly in '83 and it was the most boring concert I ever saw and I love his music. I saw Pink Floyd in '87 but it was at the old JFK stadium in Philly and my seats were so far away we were almost in another area code.(That stadium was huge). Of the concerts I've seen, I'd rank my top 10 like this:
Temptations/Four Tops-1984(all original members then)
The Police/Madness/Joan Jet/REM-1983(also at JFK but I had much better seats for this)
Doobie Brothers-1979(1st concert)
Kool & The Gang-1983
Peter Gabriel-1983Deplorably Proud To Be An American

How many of you have seen concerts at venues that no longer exist? For me, it's The Spectrum, JFK Stadium, and Veterans Stadium. All gone.Deplorably Proud To Be An American
