These are some of the ones I'm going to, the first two I already went to.

Metallica (January)
Fleetwood Mac (March)
Simply Red (March)
Franz Ferdinand (May)
No Doubt (June)
Depeche Mode (twice ...and possibly 3 times in August)

I also look forward to see when they announce tour dates around New York...

Green Day
Billy Joel & Elton John
U2 (although I'm partially considering on boycotting them)

I expect Jessica's list to be quite long :-D

I wanted to see Simply Red, but learned that Valeria, a Russian singer, would sing at his concert. And this fact only put me off the concert. She`s disgusting, absolute pop of the pops, elderly Britney Spears or even worse. It was a silly move for S.R. to invite such a worn-out, got-everybody-tired-of-her kind of star.
And, please, why would you boycot U2???

So far:

Keane in May.  

I'm also waiting to see who might show up at Wolf Trap this summer.  (Performing Arts Center in Virginia, U.S.A.)

I saw Take That live, quite by error last week.

I've gone off gigs, a bit.

Would like to see Morrissey.

Oh, I saw Russell Brand in February.

I've got tickets to see Michael MacIntyre in November, if comedy counts...

And I've seen Les Miserables about 10 times this year, and I'm pretty sure I'll be going again veeeeeeeeeery soon.

So, from that, I think we can all agree that my idea of a "gig" is somewhat different to everyone elses. I like theatre and comedy.

Believe it or not I'm going to a gig in May. 

The Killers

Probably that's the only concert I'll get to this year, since I live in the middle of NO WHERE with no car and in rural American public transit doesn't exist.  As it is, I have to rent a car to get to Kansas City to see The Killers. 

Super psyched about it though...their new album is SWEET!  :-D

Yesterday Radiohead played here in the city. I'm a big fan, really, and I got to see them twice while I was overseas and never thought of losing any of their concerts if there were the slighest chance to go, but I just didn't feel like going to the gig. I'm terrified. Friends had a seat reserved and I pass it on to another friend of mine.

It was sunday night, raining, kinda cold, and I was feeling so damn great in the blankets and really having a rest, without worrying about anything other than resting. I was really, actually, seriously tired.

Tired. It's age, that's what it is: age! Age is taking the best of me. I don't have even a small % of the energy I used to display and enjoy in my prime. Really. I have been always such a gig-goer and party-goer.

Yesterday I sounded just like my mom used to, when she didn't feel like taking me to the park, to a party, to a trip or even to a nice bicycle circuit, and I couldn't help but laughing at myself as I remembered those days:
 
"Oh, Yara, you have to set yourself limits, it's never enough for you, you're always wanting more, it's sunday, mom is tired...".

I did exactly the same. And I started laughing because the guys looked at me as if they were listening to what their parents used - or still use... - to say.

But I have already gone to some gigs.

I plan to go watch Oasis for the umpteenth time next month, just for the fun of it - they advertise their coming by insulting every single artist who performed here recently, including Radiohead and, specially, U2. They are funny. I must say I always have a good time and some good laughs, the guys are funny, or at least I find them funny in a very strange, disturbing way, because no one else seems to find much fun in their attitude, so to speak.

So even if I don't like the music, I end up having fun - I love going to concerts of bands I either hate or don't have a clue about. The Jonas Brothers are coming too. 

I go more often to classic music venues, not only because of personal taste, but for academic and professional reasons as well. 

But, well, I do plan to watch OASIS and maybe U2, it seems they will come. Well, I'm not exactly a fan of the band, I've been to one of their concerts before, but, well, it's...important to go. 

It's what I do in life after all. Listening to music, writing about music, playing music, singing music and all to the point of not wanting to listen to people talk by the middle of the year. :))))

Nah, I'm just being silly. OASIS and U2, even though I don't like the songs, will be fun to watch, I think. 

Someone told me there were more bands planning to play here but that's something I have to confirm. 

As for classic, jazz, country and even some pop artists, well, that's my field, I love going to these gigs - Not long ago we had Diana Krall, Norah Jones, Madeleine Peyroux, some fine jazz artists; the Maria Schneider Band, which I simply adore and love, and there's a rumor she's bring back the troops to invade the country with awesome music again, but that's only far ahead in the schedule, about october and november.
 
So...I keep you updated? :)

None. I'm going to go join the Scott Simpson fan club. It's set up for the two books he published, which he wasn't able to sell a hundred copies of. He needs more fans, and the money.

No taxi or bus in your town? What's the population of your town?
