I usually have to drive at least 2 hours for a good show... then 2 hours back home after the show. But, there are some pretty good shows within 2 hours each way. In the next month I have Joan Jett and the Blackhearts, the "America Rocks Tour", Scorpions and KISS. Each show is about the standard 2 hours each way.

Vitually all of my gigs are in London which is an hour each way.

 

Hopefully got the following coming up in next few months -

 

Halestorm

Crazy Lixx / Fatale Smile

Jettblack

Vega / Degreed

In 1999 I moved just far enough away from any decent concert venues that going to shows became a huge undertaking that involved way too much advance planning and became a pain in the ass. I was more or less retired from concerts by that time anyway so it isn't really a factor anymore.

I'M lucky if I get to 1 or 2 shows a year, I try to make a trip out of it. Last summer when I saw Kix in Ocean City, Md. we stayed at the shore for a few days and made a vacation out of it. I only live 20 minutes from Philly, but like Freddy said I'm also just about retired from going to concerts these days. Too much of a hassle anymore, the traffic, prices, the assholes you have to deal with. I have seen hundreds of bands during the 1980's 90's and sure I'm not missing anything I havn't seen before.

KIX is playing Dewey Beach, DE. in a few weeks (20 mins. North of Ocean City, MD.).Are you going to that show..?

I live 40 mins outside of Vancouver, BC, but we hardly get any shows I'm interested in/can afford. Journey, Loverboy, and Night Ranger are coming in December. I wonder how much that will cost?

I'd go to more shows if the cost of travel wasn't so bloody ridiculous ... and if I actually had an outside chance of catching a train home after midnight ... the last time I went to a London gig, I had to leave early because none of the usual late trains were running :(

    • That’s not bad at all. I’d love to get an AOR Freaky reaction to this, as it kinda makes me think of the Nu Breed style that started taking off around ‘03 that we know he loved so much! 😂
    • If you liked that one, I think you'll find this one to be pretty cool. It's not satirical though:  
    • Looking at the song titles, this is 100% what I expected. Not into it at all - quite dislike it, to be honest. And the song titles do nothing to fill me with confidence that any of the other songs will be any better.  Anyway, this is a real surprise. I thought he was far removed from the music scene and his voice was allegedly not up to ever returning to Autograph (as I assume, music, generally speaking?) 
    • agree with the comments on that first track, was expecting a little more from Steve, maybe something similar to the songs on Buzz, still looking forward to hearing the rest of the album though
    • Germany based label label Pride & Joy Music will continue the Pride & Joy Music Classixx series on June 14th, 2024 with the release of the following 2 classic albums: The LA Cowboys - Endless Summer (Westcoast) Captain Black Beard - Sonic Forces +2 (Melodic Rock) As usual, these titles are only available via shop.prideandjoy.de and direct wholesale via Pride & Joy Music. Both are ltd. editions with 300 copies only each. Due to a high amount of pre-orders, the classic The LA Cowboys album already is almost sold out.   https://www.shop.prideandjoy.de/en/home/16355-the-la-cowboys-endless-summer-cd.html https://www.shop.prideandjoy.de/en/home/16354-captain-black-beard-sonic-forces-cd.html The bonus tracks on the Captain Blackbeard reissue are: 11. All The Pain (Bonus Track – 2022 re-recording) 12. Headlights (Instrumental Synthwave Remix)
    • But in all honesty, I hope music fans can eventually use AI to digitally remaster demo recordings with shitty audio quality
    • Ah, fukkit, what do I care? You're my people so I'll post a link to one I/we (AI and me, lol) just did now.  You're not telling me anything I don't know about how cringe the lyrics are, but in my defence this was written on 25th of July, 2001. Yes, even my youthful self shouldn't have been such a maggot, but I don't care too much. A slice of history, I guess you could say. Anyway, you can see in this what I mean about awkward phrasing and melodies not how the writer intended, but you also may get a sense that the result can still be pretty fun and appealing, perhaps, if you penned your own lyrics.  Another thing I'll say is that the almost violin/cello/accordion-sounding guitar riff seems to keep popping up in 90% of the songs I do with this or similar prompts, and I don't understand how/why that is associated with melodic rock. But it's there, constantly. Guess AI only has so many ideas so far?  I don't like that it has the prompts (which you can see have been somewhat ignored, I guess?) and the lyrics on display, but here's an example of what I'm droning on about, for reference; https://suno.com/song/0b797863-cd90-40b6-94da-5abe78ff98ca  
    • I just shared the following song in AOR Song of the Day, but I figure I'll also create a separate thread since I can't find any information about this band—not even a Discogs page! If anybody has any info to share about them, that'll be awesome!
