I enjoy sharing my experiences with this blog. Hopefully, if these artists come to your town you will have the same success as me or in some cases, better success! I managed to attend a few more concerts to end the year and ended up getting 4 out of 5.
First of all, Carl Palmer from ELP and Asia played a solo gig in Akron. After the show, he headed straight to the merch table to sign and meet fans. He had a variety of merch available including posters, drum heads, drum sticks and…Continue
Summer is finally here, and so far it's been great! I got back from Italy and Spain a few weeks ago, what an experience to see the Colosseum and priceless works of art. Oh to get a Da Vinci autograph!
Anyway, the day I returned home, Hall and Oates were playing in Akron. I decided to try for them before the show. There was one other collector there so the…Continue
Fleetwood Mac brought their On With the Show tour to Cleveland on a below 0 degree night. I have always liked the Mac and my wife and I saw them on their last tour, minus Christine McVie.

They were great and the entire crowd was dancing in their seats. Especially when they played their biggest hit "Send me on my way". The band still has 3 original members and Liz Berlin and the new drummer met…Continue
I've been a fan of Cheap Trick since about 1982. I remember hearing some of their popular songs on the radio before that, but I believe that is when I bought Live at Budodan on cassette. After that, I was hooked. Then we finally got MTV and watching their live performances and some of their crazy video's made it even better. I continued to buy their albums: Dream Police, Next Position Please and One on One. Finally I got to see them live in 1985. They opened up for Heart and the next…Continue
