Concerts... remember them?!

As covid has hit there hasn't really been any concerts on. Since having kids, I haven't really been to any concerts. But, I am going to take my kids who are teens now to their first as soon as I can. 

Pre-covid, for our genre, what were crowds like for say Crazy Lixx or H.e.a.t.? Is it mostly dudes our age in the crowds (as we are the only ones who appear to enjoy rock these days), or was it mostly youths like when we were younger going to live shows?

When we ( Victorians, Australia ) get out , I suggest to take them to any other follow bands Wicked Smile, Ablaze or Dangerous Curve gigs.

Pre- covid those bands would great, only problem trying seeing the bands over all the cell/mobile phones at the front will be blocking our view.

I've never seen any of the new 80's-style Hard Rock and Metal bands. They're all from Sweden so they'll never come out here. But at all the shows of the classic bands, I'm usually the youngest one there.

That's what I thought... oh well.

Yeah, amazingly, even I used to feel pretty young when I went to see bands. It was always a pretty old crowd, but there's always a few young folk there. As in early 20's and stuff... Always a handful.

Alternatively, when I used to see modern rock/metal bands I always felt like the oldest person there, seriously. :(

Oh well, not something we'll ever have to worry about in this country anymore...

I have Kiss tickets for the whole family.
Was hoping to give them that experience and this was the last chance.
Concert is in November.
Downside is the show likely to be cancelled.
Upside, I'll get $1500 back in my bank account...

I have tickets for H.E.A.T in Hamburg, first date was i May 2020, then December 2020, then November 2021, and now it's May 2022, still looking forward to it though.

I've also got tickets for Baest in Denmark on September 9th, should be fun, since all Covid restrictions are abolished here.

Here in the States about a month ago saw (outdoor small festival) first Autograph, no one knew who they were actually, they just kinda showed up and then only at their final song, "Turn Up the Radio," what a fantastic song BTW, did the crowd finally look at each and go, 'oh wait this is Autograph' - funny and weird at the same time, then Stephen Pearcy (man, he was really bad), then the Bulletboys, was okay, then Kix, who totally stole the show. Steve Whiteman was great, then Slaughter not bad and finally headliner, Warrant, who I really like with Robert Mason, but being their "30th anniversary of Cherry Pie," they played virtually only from this album - literally nothing from records done with Mason, which I personally think are so underrated. Weather was rainy at times, but overall it was super great seeing a live concert after over what 18 months?!   Mostly older crowd, but a sprinkling of kiddos out and about.

KIX has to be a headliner. Nobody can follow them. Don't even try.

    • I think that's why I took to the track "Smoking" I suppose  its just a little dirtier in tone. All good tracks but you're right the new country vibe isn't for me...my wife loves it though...so every cloud n all that....but the other non country sounding tracks I love.
    • Dame Olivia Newton-John (73) passed away peacefully at her Ranch in Southern California this morning, surrounded by family and friends. We ask that everyone please respect the family’s privacy during this very difficult time. Olivia has been a symbol of triumphs and hope for over 30 years sharing her journey with breast cancer.  Her healing inspiration and pioneering experience with plant medicine continues with the Olivia Newton-John Foundation Fund, dedicated to researching plant medicine and cancer.  In lieu of flowers, the family asks that any donations be made in her memory to the Olivia Newton-John Foundation Fund (ONJFoundationFund.org). Olivia is survived by her husband John Easterling; daughter Chloe Lattanzi; sister Sarah Newton-John; brother Toby Newton-John; nieces and nephews Tottie, Fiona and Brett Goldsmith; Emerson, Charlie, Zac, Jeremy, Randall, and Pierz Newton-John; Jude Newton-Stock, Layla Lee; Kira and Tasha Edelstein; and Brin and Valerie Hall. - via John Easterling, husband, Olivia Newton-John
    • Good stuff....missed it first time around.....
    • The Jokers - Slapback from their upcoming release “Rock and Roll Bones” 
    • There are certainly some great songs on here. I've only done the first 2 discs so far though. 
    • Played as well today and it's ok and has a few good songs, but tbh, I'm starting to get a bit bored with them, as they don't offer up anything they haven't done before. Like the last album, everything on this album has been done to death previously and is as predictable as hell. Of all the new albums I have played recently (and there have been quite a few) this doesn't feature very highly unfortunately.
    • I think 'Smoking' is the weakest track by far on here and the only one I don't really rate that much. Of the others, 'Time to Let Go' is a cool rocker that hits the spot and the lead off single 'Why Are You Calling Me Now' is a great AOR track. Liking the rest is going to depend on whether you like the more New Country/Pop ballad style of song, as there are at least 4 or 5 like that,  with Jay DeMarcus's obvious influence on these ..'I Hope You Find It' 'Don't Go' 'Finally Got It Right' and 'Anything But Us' are spectacular ballads and amongst some of the best I have heard in recent times, whilst 'Angels' 'All Night To Get There', 'Lights Go Out In Paradise' and 'Waiting On Your Sunshine' are all top quality too. Definitely one of the best albums this year for me, but as I said, it won't all be for everyone's taste, especially the softer stuff on show.
    • At least they've reverted back to something similar to Tesla soundwise...its ok...not bad...but if I need Tesla I've always got Mechanical Resonance , TGRC or Psychotic Supper to get me through
