Summer Night lineup

Good line up this year. Might have to see a bunch o' shows.

What I like:

  • Gipsy Kings $60 6/29
  • Jonny Lang & Keb' Mo' $45 7/3
  • Cyndi Lauper $36 7/17
  • B.B. King Blues Festival $56 7/31 & 8/1
  • Chris Isaak $45 8/3 & 8/4
  • The Robert Cray Band & Buddy Guy $39 8/14
  • David Byrne featuring the Tosca Strings $32 8/15
That's 7 shows I might have to attempt. Pre-sale starts today at 10 a.m. Course, I can't really go to all of them. Anyone want to join me at any of them? That will influence what I ultimately decide to go to.

No kidding. That's not even all of their line-up. Just the ones I like. They did a good job catering to my tastes this year. I want to see 7 of 15 acts.

ok not like i can afford the $45 ticket, but EVERYONE should go see Jonny. he's a god. seriously. he puts on the BEST live shows.

and if you get in the front row, he just might flick sweat on you. heee!

I always just hang out outside the concert on the sidewalk or somewhere down on the waterfront, to the shows I don't go to... you can hear it VERY well but just can't see anything. ;)

I love the Gypsy Kings, but $60?!! Damn. I am so used to paying $10-$20 for shows at the local clubs. Cyndi Lauper is tempting though... :)

Yeah, I echo the "Damn". Most of those shows are just way out of my price range o' happiness.

I paid like $80 to see Tool once, and the seats were almost the top row (nose bleed section) at Key Arena... I not once could see Maynard on the stage due to equipment in the way... it sucked. The whole time, I felt I had wasted my money even though the music/visuals were cool. I might as well have turned on a lava lamp and blasted Tool on my stereo at home though... for free! ;)

Amen to $15 shows at small venues that you can get up to the front of the crowd if you want! :)

Yah but you won't see that price for bigger artists like Cyndi Lauper.

I generally only go to one or two big name concerts per year, partially due to the price and partially because I like to be up close and personal.

I would LOVE to see Chris Issak, but I don't think I could bring myself to pay that much money.

See, I get spoiled living in Seattle and paying less than $10 to see at least 2-3 bands.

Many of those in the lineup appeal to me, but what jump out are the Gipsy Kings and Cyndi Lauper. A bit pricy for me, as well, but...argh...maybe :)

Way too rich for my blood, but I have seen The Robert Cray Band & Buddy Guy before, and can tell you they're incredible live. Don't miss that one.

I'll be at most of the shows - since I work there and stuff :)

I would love to see The Gypsy Kings. For 60 bucks? Not this time around.
