Re: My Next Concert (s)
I've been to 2 shows so far in 2012. I saw The Black Keys a couple of weeks ago. I think the BK are one of the most talented newer bands out there today, there are FANTASTIC, loving everything about their sound and style!!
I saw Dave Mason this past Saturday night. It was an acoustic tour and he played with another guitarist on acoustic. It was a great show, but I prefer Dave with his band and I would of preferred Dave on a 6 string acoustic as opposed to his 12 string for most of the show. In that setting, the 12 string sounded not as pleasing to the ears...tinny... too high pitched...hard to describe...
The warm-up act was Al Stewart also on acoustic. He played the same Taylor guitar for all his songs and tuned it as needed, especially towards the end to drop D. Al was absolutely fantastic!! If you shut your eyes, both Al & Dave still have it, age has done nothing to their voices or guitar skills. Coincidentally, both artists told stories about the writer Leonard Cohen. Al Stewart ran into Cohen right after his second album was released in an Montreal airport. Al approached him, asked him what he thought about some lyrics he had written and Cohen complimented him.
Also seeing Gina Sicilia in April, Steve Winwood in May and Bonnie Raitt in June.
Considering seeing the Black Keys again in May and James Taylor in July and Renassaince in October.
