Incredible show!!  Great mix of old and new songs, including Electric Co, Ah cat dubh/Into the heart, and 40, which haven't been played live in years. Opened with City of Blinding Lights, and closed with 40. The only songs missing I would have liked to hear were With Or Without You, and Bad. But, they have almost 30 years worth of songs, so some are bound to get left out.   All in all, they are still on top of their game.  See a show if you can.

Pirate, be sure to pick up Devil's Playground from Billy Idol.  It's a really interesting collection and several of the songs are new favorites of mine.

Steve Stevens is the lead guitarist and he is awesome once again on this new CD.   Smiley

Went to the 2nd U2 San Diego show on Wednesday night.  Even better than the first show! The set list included With Or Without You, and Gloria, wich were not played the first night. The new album is really carrying over live, and Edge's guitar playing is absolutely reaching "brilliant" status.

Haven't seen him YET this year but am hoping.  Tomorrow morning, tickets go on sale for Bruce Springsteen solo at a small venue close to home.  I can only hope I can nail 2 tickets  Grin

I went to see the Psychedelic Furs last weekend, in a small (300 capacity) club.  Great show--I got my money's worth as soon as Richard Butler opened his mouth and that cool gravelly voice started to work its' magic.  We were about 10 feet from the stage, they played all of their cool songs, overall a great time.

Saw Bruce in Detroit Monday night.  Sold out show, and very good.  I'm not a huge Bruce fan, but he was pretty incredible solo.

Seeing Billy Idol in Tucson and Cleveland the next two weeks and can't wait!

Brew, I saw the Furs a few years ago in  a small venue in Detroit.  They were great and Richard Butler is quite a showman.

I saw
Garbage
last night.  What a great band they are.  Excellent show!  Man, do they rock.

Butch Vig, the drummer, had his drums surrounded by a plexiglas box.  We were wondering, (any of you drummers out there)...was that just for looks, or does that do something to the sound?

It probably makes it easier for the sound man to mix the drums without getting any "bleed" from the guitars.
