Brad Paisley at Sprint Center, two weeks ago. I go to concerts all the time. Feel bad for people who haven't been in years.

A friend's elderly father who was unable to drive wanted to go to a Benny Hinn revival, or whatever they called it, at Kemper Arena. So, I gave him a ride to see Benny Hinn live. The only way to describe the experience was that it was a rock concert, flashing lights, costumes, singing, and all. I didn't see any miracles of faith healing or miracles of any other kind that night.

So, I guess the Benny Hinn rock concert at Kemper Arena was the last rock concert I attended. I'm sorry if my description of Benny Hinn's event offends anyone.

Wakarusa Music Festival in Arkansas!!! Saw so many shows but my favorites would've been Railroad Earth and Umphrey's Mcgee. Widespread Panic was pretty amazing as always.

Tomorrow (Sunday) Michael Franti and Spearhead at The Crossroads in KC.

It was Summer Beach Ball, 2006, hosted by 96.5 The Buzz. It was a pretty good show. 311 was the headliner, but there were tons of acts. We had lots of drinks, we got married, Kill Hannah was my wedding party. What a memorable day. Not many folks can say there were 15,000 people at their wedding, eh?

Our daughter sang in the choir which made it the most awesome concert we have attended lately! Before that, Tony Bennett, George Thorogood and Little Feet or Macy Gray. Can't remember when any of these were - years seem to smoosh all together as I age!! :-)

Some of you folks need to get out more often!

I love live music.

Lavay Smith and the Red Hot Skillet Lickers was the last show I attended. Outdoors, on the grass (not a euphemism), under the stars with a bottle wine. What a great night. This is Smith and company at another show.

In Feb. I saw St. Vincent, but it was a "show," not a concert since it was in a club. Still great. Clip from actual show I saw:

Best concert I've seen in the past few years was Tom Waits. He is amazing. Viddie from second night in Phoenix. I was at first night:

Roger Waters was the last big concert I've attended. He put on a pretty good show as well, doing the entire Dark Side album, plus other stuff:

Geez, can't even remember. I guess Omega when it was around. The Grateful Dead, David Bowie '90? Surely something more recent than that. Just can't recall. Lots of local acts.

Russian pianist at Lied. Didn't like him much, so I forgot his name. I just went to see the piano. He was perturbed about something, it showed. Someone needed to drop kick him into Potter's. Arrogant ^&* that he was.
