I just bought tickets to both of the shows in Phoenix. I rule!
Both shows sold out in 4 minutes.
damn you... PEHDSCKJMBA sadly doesn't include anywhere on the east coast.
Tom Waits is a guy you either love or hate.
or think is ok.
He's okay, but it's always better when Springsteen and the E-Street Band, or Bon Jovi cover his songs. Especially "Jersey Girl"
No. What did Bon Jovi cover?
And I'll throw in Bruce at Giants Stadium here in Jersey for fun (was at the show )
Those are O.K., but christ that song is old. I wouldn't be mad if he played it though. I hope he plays some stuff from the 80's. With two shows to look forward too, I think I'll hear what I want too.
He is playing at the Orpheum, which is really small, and really nice!
I have 16th and 20th row seats! God I cannot wait....
Cool. Hope you have a blast!
I only have 3 concerts lined up this summer so far.
June 5: Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers (Philly, Front Row! w00t)
June 24: Pearl Jam (Meadowlands...I think. Don't really want to even go to the show, not a fan of the band, but my bud's fiancee can't go that day, so I got drafted.)
July 18: Billy Joel at Shea Stadium (Christ, this'll be the 16th time seeing Billy live)
Tom Petty should be good, as well as Pearl Jam. I haven't seen either one live, I should rethink my life.
But seriously, you can buy like 50 Pearl Jam concerts on CD. Tom Petty hasn't had a good album since Wildflowers. (which is just mindblowing, his best, IMO.)
This might be my one and only chance to see Mr. Waits. He barely tours at all...I need to tape it, somehow...just for my own collection.
Dude, I love Tom Waits, but I just saw ticket prices for the Mobile concert-- $85. I don't love him that much
I guess his fan-base consists largely of relatively well-to-do old folk, but damn. Rain Dogs is definitely in my top 10 albums of all time, though.
For those that haven't seen it, Tom Waits' press conference for the tour (it's extremely funny and also explains my PEHDSCKJMBA comment):
He is a God amongst mere mortals.
I gladly paid 90 for each concert. I checked ebay prices, just insane. I'm holding on to mine.
The press conference was indeed awesome. If you haven't watched it, watch it right now! Just be sure to watch ALL of it for the payoff..
if i was a jersey guy, devilz would totally be my concert going buddy, FYI.
I just got back from the 2nd show. Both shows were pretty good, but not perfect. Tom forgot some lyrics, the horn player screwed up some stuff, the guitarist is no Mark Ribot. It was still the best show(s) I have ever seen, well worth the money. Not too many repeats during the second show.
Here's some reviews...
Tom Waits for ebk to go to his show
