Is this the 70's ?


I've written a few posts about great music from the 70's recently but - dude, are we BACK there? Have you SEEN the concert tours for this summer?


Jethro Tull
Ted Nugent
The Police
Rush
Peter Frampton
Genesis
Roger Waters
Heart

Probably lots more too...

I really don't have a point other than all us old people still dig our tunes!

(did anyone else have black light posters?)

Sadly, no. The Genesis line-up isn't the classic 70s line-up, but the pop/schmalz line-up of 1978 to the 1990s. Sniff sniff.

It just goes to show that the 70s was the greatest decade ever, musically.

I am dying to see Tull but it seems as if I'm the only one I know who is willing to pay $80 to see him. What a shame...

Layla (aka Barbara) said...

David - you're right about that :(

Bruce - I AGREE!

Jeff, it should be a crime to charge so much for tickets. I paid $150 a piece for Roger Waters - what was I thinking? I guess I was thinking - what the hell, its only money....

The only ones I suspect are still good are Nuge, Rush and Roger Waters. I'd even be skeptical of Waters if I hadn't seen him and know how good a show he does. The Police are the one I'd probably least like to see, but that's because I hate Sting so much. I loved the Police, but Sting comitted the greatest of all rock sins, he grew up and played for adults. The light jazz stuff he's done as a solo artist is so tired. Plus, he's like the poster child for fake liberals. As a real liberal, I resent that. I know it's a dumb thing to be bitter about, but Sting gets under my skin. I'd love to see Stewart Copeland and Andy Summers without Sting though.

By the way, I agree that it should be a crime to charge so much for tickets to a rock show. No ticket should be unaffordable to the average teenager.

Jeff - Do you think Tull would still have it? They were pretty erratic over the years, so I'd be hesitant. If I thought I'd get something on par with their early 70s stuff, I'd be interested for sure. I'd just be worried that I'd be disappointed. Still, I think you're more the prog expert than I am, so I suspect your intuitions may be correct.

Yes, I will be there. Ticket prices are not that high in Holland.

Allman Brothers are still on the road too....

This proves that the saying "Rock and Roll will never die" is true!
