I literally don't even know what that is.   Based on the picture I'm wondering why they are selling tickets to see an itinerant farmer.

Lucky you.   Sailors Guide to Earth is one of my favorite albums.

Rage Against the Machine. PPG Arena. July 31st. Just announced so no tix yet, but I'm not passing this one up. They're not for everyone, but I've been a fan of Rage, Audioslave, Prophets of Rage.

Keep your eyes open.   That show at that price looks like a prime candidate for one of those late blowout sales.

Likely, not sure they have the drawing power to sell out. Meanwhile on the other end of town, a crew of rapidly aging seniors is demanding $166.50 and up, not that I have any interest. Then there's the extortion fee they add on top of the ticket. Perhaps my principles are starting to catch up with my age.

I've never seen The Stones and would like to even though as a rule I prefer seeing someone in their prime as opposed to catching a Dinosaur Act.   The upcoming concert I am most excited about is Jason Isbell.   I'm hoping he doesn't sell out before the tax refund hits.

My wife's best friend is a big James Taylor fan so we bought two tickets for her and two for us for the summer JT show with Jackson Browne show.  Truthfully ive seen them both enough already but should be fun.  Last JT show I took a guitar/songbook with me to the show and he autographed it during the intermission. 

You're right about the 20% service charge.   I guess obscenity is back in style these days.

Saw the Stones a few times, granted in the 90's. If I pass on the Stones and Rage then my math tells me I can pay up to $300 for Isbell and break even.

Like I tell my bookie, "I hope I break even.  I need the money."

But if you're doing math that way, let me refer you to a good tax man!!!
