A year? I never heard of any band or singer selling tickets a year in advance. The longest I've had to wait from Day 1 sale to showtime was about 4 months tops.

I'd drive to your house and kick your ass right now if you did in fact lose the tickets.

Not really a concert... but ya, I guess it was.

Last night, my wife and I went to our local outdoor amphitheater to watch one of the more prominent local bands... Dr. Zhivegas

I saw them about 2 years ago when I was working our Zoo Charity. The only thing I was impressed with was the sound and stage presence. They are an entertainment group.

Last night, I got to watch them closely. I knew about 3/4 of the songs. All very current and pop. Again, sounded very good, but as I looked around, they didn't move the meter on these folks very much. Maybe that's do to the nature of an outdoor event. Maybe this was not Dr. Zhivegas crowd. I was mildly entertained.

And honestly a little miffed. The band consists of a guitarist, drummer, bass and two vocalist. The songs they played were filled with keyboards and spectacular percussion. These guys were not playing that. They were, but it was all recorded. They filled in the basics. And with my thoughts on lip synching, I just thought, you cheaters.

But you know what. I'm sure I'm one of the few that noticed and let alone, care. They are popular. They bring in the crowd and get the job done.

I need to figure out how our band can learn from this.

I was very much looking forward to this years Del Mar Fair with it's concert series, a different 'name' band or singer each night for the duration of the Fair (2 weeks). Not one band/singer was worth the ink on the printed page this year. Big let down. There's usually 1 or 2 big name performer that catches my interest. This year is a bust. Sigh.

I WON'T be attending, strictly because of price. But I would like too.

I like Ringo and his All Starr Band, but the price is just to much.

Dude, am I reading that correct? Tickets for you would be $49.50 to $127.50? Consider yourself lucky. I'm still on the fence of attending his show here at Humprey's by the Bay and the "cheapest" seat is $155.

Really?

Well I know the 'cheap' seats are not worth attending. If I can't see the faces, I ain't going.

See, that's my predicament. Humprey's by the Bay isn't a huge venue. It's actually quite cozy so even if you get the worst seat in the house, it's still pretty damn close. I just can't swallow spending that kind of money for one ticket, let alone over $300 for two.

It's tough choice. I'm not big a fan of Ringo and the boys.

So far I've spent kind of money on Buble and Pink.

I'd probably do Adele.

Some exciting news and it's all speculation. Supposely today at 10am, it will be announced that Paul will be playing at Petco Park. I really want to go but I'm scared that the ticket cost is going to be prohibitive. We shall see. I hope that everything pans out and I can go and take my Mom as she is a HUGE fan of the dude.

Elsewhere, Ringo Starr's show at Humprey's this Friday is SOLD OUT. The cost for that already made it a non-starter. As much as I wanted to go to that one, I couldn't justify the cost.
