Concerts you have recently gone to.

This weekend I attended two concerts. Billy Joel, up in Connecticut, and then Ringo (starr) and his all star band ( here on long island). Both I have seen in the past ( Billy at least 10 times, and Ringo one other time about 2 years ago.) Both were great shows. Billy played a few songs that he hasnt done in concert in years , which was nice. Although, I didnt feel he was able to get the crowd up on its feet as well as he did years ago. Ringo, has such a great, interactive personality. His band was great, and he had the crowd laughing, talking back and on its feet the whole night. I give both the thumbs up.

Just curious who else has recently been to a concert, and what they thought.

We went to see Billy Joel when he was in Australia last year. Great concert and fantastic singer.

I went to see Billy Joel quite a few years ago when he was on tour with Elton John. They were both spectacular - an excellent show. The last concert I went to was Alanis Morissette, I think, or maybe John Mayer. Both were good, too.

Rick Springfield.... I'm embarrased to say. Nothing against Springfield... just not my type of music to buy tickets for!!!! But he was pretty good, surprisingly! The concert before that was Def Leppard, that is more my speed.

OMG, my sons went to see Rick Springfield in Vegas about 6 years ago. They went with their dad and he talked them into that versus Blue Man Group. (He still hasn't lived that one down!) Def Leppard - that would be awesome!
