Cool I'm not really all that familiar with them, I'm mainly going to see Iced Earth though I'm not a big fan of their new CD and I'm not so sure about the new singer, but I figure this show is cheap enough that it's worth it anyway, especially since I can easily drive there without having to worry about paying for a train ticket to New York. I did listen to a few songs by Symphony X years ago and thought they were alright. I might be more into their style now though.

Did anyone try to get Bruce Springsteen tickets today? I've never seen him before and would like to see him at least once. Five shows went on sale today, two at the Izod Center, two at MSG, and one at the Rock -- it will be his first time playing there. I tried to buy tix for either Izod or the Rock but by the time I got through on TM, nothing was left. I couldn't even get through on TM for over an hour.

Yeah, a lot of people reported the same thing. It happens anytime NJ/NY Bruce tickets go on sale - Ticketmaster just can't handle the demand between the actual fans and the scalper bots.

I didn't even bother - as bad as I want to see him (I, too, have yet to see him live), I just don't have the money right now.

Scalper bots? I don't know anything about them, but they sound nefarious!

Seriously though, getting concert tickets at a reasonable price for decent seats at popular arena shows has become near impossible. One really has to be crafty and diligent.

saw Tool last night @ the CAA...

the opener (YOB) were seriously awful. Psychedelic Sludge Metal... name says it all. Just noise with bass..

Tool came on around 9 and they are one damn good live band, seriously. Love them live. Played tons of awesome songs (Most off of AEnima and Lateralus, and a few off Opiate/Undertow)

(Being a Drummer) i am always Mesmerized by Danny Careys drumming, just... INSANE

My only gripe is too much jamming/ambient noises... but that was a total of 15 minutes throughout the hour and 45 minute set

Would definitely see them again

going back to CAA (yeah yeah whatever) for the 2nd time since the Devils moved... im glad we are NO longer there.

The Concourse is just horrible. Too many people, the lines are insane. wow im happy we're at The Rock

The ONLY redeeming quality are the upper seats at the CAA are better than the rocks (Leg room people, leg room)

Man Primus was awesome last night. They played at Gramercy Theatre, which was probably the smallest concert venue I've ever been to. It was cool to see a prominent band like Primus at such an intimate venue. Doors didn't open until 9 and I got there a little after 7, so I was able to get a spot right up on the barricade in front of the stage. The vocals sounded like they weren't loud enough, at least where I was, but it was still a great show. In case there are other Primus fans on this site, here is the setlist they played...

Set 1:

To Defy the Laws of Tradition

Fisticuffs

Moron TV

Frizzle Fry

Eternal Consumption Engine

The Toys Go Winding Down

Tommy the Cat

Set 2:

Prelude to a Crawl

Hennepin Crawler

Golden Boy

Mr. Knowitall

Seas of Cheese

Jilly's on Smack

The Pressman

Wynona's Big Brown Beaver

Bob

My Name Is Mud

Encore:

Lee Van Cleef

John the Fisherman

It sounds like that Primus show was pretty cool. Some of my friends used to be big into them. I only know a few of their songs, but I bet I would've enjoyed the show, had I went.

I know there are some Metallica fans on here. In case anyone didn't hear about it, they will be headlining a weekend outdoor festival in Atlantic City in June. On one night, they'll play the "Black Album" in its entirety; the other night, they'll play "Ride the Lightning" in its entirety.

I used to be a huge Metallica fan in my teenage years. I'm seriously considering going to this - the lineup is incredible, and not at all what I would expect out of a Metallica-curated festival.

How's this for a combination? Iron Maiden with Alice Cooper at The Rock, July 2nd. smiley_headbanger.gif

Obviously this one won't come cheap though.

Maiden usually keeps its tix at a respectable price.

I'll be going to Ghost / Opeth / Mastodon in Philly (Boo!!) April 9th, and Clutch on April 17th at Sherman Theater in Stroudsburg PA. It's a very small venue, just perfect for a Clutch show!!

@Microwavepizza, that Tool show was my 6th.. They get infinitely better each time I've seen them... (With the exception of the interlude during 'Sober.. Did not like that...)'

I'm going to the first night of Bamboozle. Which is weird because of the three, it's by far the weakest day. I guess I'll sit on the beach and laugh at Skrillex fans or something.

I would have gone to Roseland, but I'm going with my Tattoo Artist, who is in PA... so its kinda 50/50... Im REALLY excited to see Opeth as I've not seen them before, and theyve been on heavy rotation in my playlist recently. This will be the 2nd time I've seen Mastodon.. The first was at Starland Ballroom with Between The Buried And Me about 2 years ago... Musically they were on point... Vocally they had a bit to be desired.. Although that could have been the Crack The Skye material.. I think The Hunter will translate into a better live show.

Speaking of BTBAM, THAT is an absolute insane show.. (Ive seen them twice)

Opeth is absolutely SICK live... Mikael Akerfeldt sounds JUST as good as the albums live, no joke.

hes also a real funny dude on stage, loves to mess with the audience and random people he sees... if you yell things out, he usually responds with something witty or funny

I don't know if anyone else here is/was a Van Halen fan. But I have to say that they kicked ass both last night and Tuesday night at MSG. Eddie Van Halen showed why he is still the greatest living rock guitarist in the world, even after all these years. And it is so exciting to see David Lee Roth back where he belongs, on stage fronting VH. He is the ultimate hard rock showman. Good times.

For those of you that like Ska or Streetlight Manifesto, Toh Kay is going on another solo tour with Dan P and will be in NYC april 25 and 26th. Ill be at one of those shows. I went last time to Joes Pub which is a fantastic place for small sets (seat about 50 people if that. Toh Kay was awesome. If you are a ska fan or a Streetlight Fan you can not miss this show. Seriously.
