They have several dates - I'm catching them in Charlotte.
Life is hard. It's really hard if you're stupid.
I don't go to concerts where I watch the performance on a big screen with 25,000 of my closest friends. I got back yesterday from CR and the Paramount Theatre where I watched 76 year old Merle Haggard perform for 2500 people for 2 hours + with his band. His son sang four numbers, which was the complete back up show. Yeah, I know. Merle is likely not the most popular concert destination for most people on this board, but I loved the country music of Cash, Jones, Haggard, Nelson, Waylon and the boys. I sat in the 8th row for $55 and the concert was not drowned out by screams from the audience. I may not be an Okie from Muskogee, but Mama Tried and Pancho and Lefty echoed in my mind. After all, All the Federals say, we could have had him any day...we only let him slip away, out of kindness, I suppose...BTW, the Paramount is one of the most beautiful venues I have ever seen. You can have the Kohl Center in Madison or the Bucks venue in Milwaukee for concerts---not me.
I think it really depends on the band. There are some bands who are really adept at making arena concerts feel intimate in personal. Others suck though, you're right.
Hmmm, let's see. I loves me some Merle, Johnny Cash was the first concert I ever attended (Dad was sick, I went with Mom, I was 12), and one of the best concerts I ever saw was Willie Nelson at the Backyard in Austin.
I'm 26 and enjoy Merle, Cash, Willie, etc. Had it been in DSM I probably would have checked it out. Willie was here not that long ago, but the price was a little steep for me.
Love it that I have more company than I expected...thanks for the info!
Going to see 38 Special tonight down in Coralville!!
