You guys are gonna kill me for this... I'm seeing New Kids on the Block and the Backstreet Boys in August.  Don't hate!  It's basically my childhood's worth of music wrapped up into one show (with the exception of the fact that they don't have the Spice Girls and NYSNC touring with them lol)

Okay, so Ravi Shankar was really great, just as I expected.   :D
I can't believe he's 91 and still puts on such a wonderful show.  He might not be as lightning-fast as he used to be, but he was an absolute sight to behold.  It felt like a spiritual guru had just walked into the room when he came onstage, led arm in arm by someone.  He appeared very frail, almost like he should be using a wheelchair instead, but they sat him down and the whole place went silent.  Someone had to pass his sitar to him and physically put it into his hands, and he gave a short speech about Indian classical and folk styles, and what they were going to perform.  Then suddenly the drone filled the air and BAM!  The magic happened.  He just completely came to life, improvising the most wonderful lines with considerable speed for his age, and conducting his group very jauntily, waving his arms with a lively flourish and a smile every time a particularly good sound happened.  The music just transformed him from a frail old man into a passionate, youthful and capable musician, and it was wonderful to see.  The music itself was very good, and one of the tabla players was astonishingly fast!  Ravi even injected humour into it, even though it's not the kind of show you'd expect to hear it, at one point explaining that a lot of his early training revolved around dancing, but adding "don't worry, I won't actually get up and dance!"  He was inspiring to watch, and I count myself extremely lucky that I've managed to see him perform live, despite the fact that our lifetimes are quite badly spaced for it.

Lol, not really. My mom is just really, really, really nice. We don't have much money but the Patti Smith concert is a birthday present since it's in August...and the Nazareth concert is really cheap! And Les Miserables was booked when my mom had just gotten paid  ;yes

I quite like Janet Jacksons early stuff, I even have Control on vinyl! Tho, I rarely listen to it, hehe. Anyway, I'm a big Michael fan myself, ever since I was 5, I was a bigger fan when I was younger tho ;D
You're very lucky to see both of them live, my good sir! Hope you have a fab time  ;yes you should give us a full report on the concerts too  ha2ha

He does exude that sort of presence. I feel it just seeing him on DVD. I can only imagine what it was like live. Thanks for telling us all about it; it sounds like it was really a wonderful experience.

Ooooh I really wanna see Jeff Beck in October. Tickets are probably expensive though and who would go with me?

Moody Blues in April

you'll enjoy that Todd  ;yes

I have no further concert tickets, Roger waters is here next month but Im refusing to pay $150 for the cheapest seats (a kilometre from the stage) the seats Id like are $190, its too greedy imo, Moody Blues was $90 for good seats, Im ok with that....

$190 X 2 plus $10 parking plus drinks plus programme = around $400 (without dinner), I'll just get the DVD  ha2ha
