I saw the National at the Mann Center last week, really awesome.

 

Right now I don't have anything on my concert calendar, but I'm hoping to make the Made in America festival in early September, and I may wind up at the Fall Out Boy/Panic At The Disco show in Philly the week after that as well.

Right now there are three shows I want to go to this summer, and two of them are on the same night. :argh:

 

The first one is July 22nd, a band called Dio Disciples, which is a bunch of guys that played in bands with Ronnie James Dio with singer Tim "Ripper" Owens of Judas Priest and Iced Earth playing at Mexicali Live in Teaneck.  One of my coworkers is opening for them which is awesome because he grew up idolizing some of these guys.

 

The other bands I have to decide between are Pentagram and Black Sabbath on August 4th.  Black Sabbath will obviously be more expensive but Pentagram is all the way down in Philly.  Black Sabbath just came out with a new album so I'm afraid they'll be playing a lot of new stuff, but I just saw Pentagram play at Maryland Deathfest in Baltimore a couple weeks ago.  Going to be a tough decision.

 

By the way I just realized I never made a post about that Maryland Deathfest show.  It is a small four-day metal festival completely organized by just two regular guys, no big concert promoter or anything.  For just two normal guys they do a great job.  My friend has been begging me to go with him for a couple years, but I never went until this year because it's called "Deathfest" so I figured it was all death metal, but it's not.  They should call it "Maryland Metalfest."  Anyway, of the bands that were there, I highly suggest to any metalhead to check out the following bands:

 

Pagan Altar -- older band from the UK.  This was their first show in the US.  These guys came out with a demo in the early 80s and then didn't release a full album until I think the late 90s for whatever reason, but they were awesome.  Check out their Mythical and Magical album.

 

Manilla Road -- another old school metal band that for some reason never got big.  Check out their Crystal Logic album, you can find the entire album on YouTube.

 

Sleep -- slow doom/stoner metal band from the 90s.  Check out Holy Mountain.

 

Pentagram -- Sabbath-style metal that also for some reason never made it big.  Check out Relentless.

 

Also some other bands I saw that I didn't like as much as them but are also worth checking out if you're looking to find new bands are Sacred Reich (Check out The American Way), Midnight (Check out Satanic Royalty), and Venom (check out Black Metal).

That sounds amazing! Out of all those glorious bands, I've only seen Godsmack, Avenged Sevenfold and Indian Handcrafts. I'd love to see all of them, especially Halestorm. Seriously good music.

 

I have tickets to Five FInger Death Punch this fall, and I'm pretty excited. I saw them a couple years ago when they opened for Korn, and I'm happy to be seeing them again.

 

I'm hoping to get tickets to Alice in Chains w/ Monster Truck and Chevelle. What a glorious concert year this has been for me already.

 

Edit: Update- I just got those tickets for Alice in Chains. :)

Saw Steve Miller at Red Rocks in Morrison, CO. Never smelled so much grass in my life. And that includes the time I was dragged to Dave Matthews at Hershey Park while I was still in college. Steve puts on a good show though.  He's still got something left in the tank.  He plays a lot of newer blues-ier stuff too.

Do you mean the old Capitol Theatre in Passaic? I saw one show there in the mid-Eighties a few years before it closed for good. I also stood outside on line there a few times waiting for its Ticketmaster ticket box office window to open up in the morning.

Trying to get reasonably priced lawn seats for this Sunday's Black Sabbath show at PNC, but so far no luck.

Same here, I waited because I was deciding between Sabbath and Pentagram and by the time I made up my mind, the lawn seats sold out.  There was a ticket on ebay earlier today with a buy it now of $65, hopefully passing up on that wasn't a mistake...

Anyway, about a week or two ago I saw Dio Disciples at Mexicali Live in Teaneck.  Dio Disciples is a cover band that consists of some of Ronnie James Dio's former bandmates and they play a bunch of old songs from Rainbow, Dio, and Black Sabbath during the Dio years.  It was great to see such famous people performing in such a small intimate venue, I was literally right up against the stage, there wasn't even a barricade or anything like at most concert venues.  Even better is my coworker's band, Lethal Affection, opened for them so it was cool to see my buddy's band opening for these guys he grew up idolizing.  They finished their set with a cover of Judas Priest's Painkiller which they did a really good job with.  You can listen to some of their songs on their facebook page, my favorite is Taste of Anarchy.

Sounds like it was a good show. I know Vivan Campbell, guitarist from Dio, has been making some noise lately, trying to get writing credits on some of the classic tunes and also touring with some of the old bandmates under the name Last in Line -- but I assume he was not involved with Dio Disciples?

 

I live about 10 minutes away from Mexicali Live. Been there a few times. Definitely a cool place to see a show.

Nah he wasn't there, it was Mark Boals and Oni Logan singing (Tim "Ripper" Owens is also a singer but wasn't at this show.  Boals was a guest singer for a few shows I guess in Ripper's place), Craig Goldy playing guitar, Bjorn Englen on bass, Scott Warren on keyboard, and Vinny Appice playing drums (in place of usual drummer Simon Wright).

This was my first time at that place.  It was a longer drive than I thought for me, but definitely a good venue.

 

EDIT:  Here's the setlist

Has anyone been to a concert at Barclays Center in Brooklyn? If so, how were the seats? Someone warned me to avoid the upper bowl because the seats are so high up compared to other arenas. Does anyone have any experiences from that arena that they can share?

Saw Dave Matthews Band there last winter

 

Had GA floor, show was sick...the 200 level does look like it is pitched verrrrryyyy steep

 

Floor or 100 level near the stage you should be fine

 

I would personally avoid the 200 level if at all possible.

 

Good luck!

I was at Braclay's for the Islanders/Devils pre-season game back in September and my seats were about the 4th row from the very top.  What I remember most that it was very dark and steep up there and had to use the flashlight feature on my iphone to see where I was stepping and the seat numbers.  It did feel like we were higher up than comparable seats at the Rock.
