Lots of punk for you this year

Speaking of punk, likely adding this to my concert list this summer:

August 5th - Rise Against, AFI, and Anti-Flag @ Stone Pony Summerstage, Asbury Park NJ

Yeah, some of these shows are bands I never saw before but have loved for many years. I'm pretty excited.

I'm sad the show you mentioned isn't coming to AZ. I might have to fit in a road trip to go to it.

That bill is playing in Irvine, CA at the FivePoint Amphitheater.  I didn't know Rise Against was big enough to do an amphitheater as the last act.  I would think they are certainly more than suitable enough to play the Anaheim House of Blues.  Don't know if I want to go.  I do like Rise Against a fair amount, but I'm not the kind of guy that would go to this kind of show....... if that makes any sense.

I'm going for AFI.  They've sold out their local shows here lately in mid size venues.  I'm not too familiar with Rise Against, and I've seen Anti-Flag countless times now but they have some draw here in NJ.  This venue is a bit smaller than an amphitheater though, but still bigger than what any of those would play without this tour package.

Persefone was awesome! Defecto and Oddland had some issues with the drum sound I think, sounded really weird. One guy outside after Defecto saying it fit their name cracked me up

Persefone played Stillness is Timeless for the first time on the entire tour (and I believe ever?) and that's my favourite song by them :metal so I'm going home a happy man. Also there were only like 70 people roughly, felt really weird for a band with their size/popularity but it made the show more intimate and awesome

This is probably not something you guys are interested in, but if any of the dutch DTF'ers want to go see Bell Witch or Rolo Tomassi tomorrow, let me know and I'll put you on the guestlist. This goes for any concert in Patronaat by the way, as long as you let me know in advance. Except for maybe Elder, because a lot of friends want to go there as well and already let me know.

Also mostly @ home, I figured you may wanna go to Elder and Caspian and they play one day after eachother, so if you want to crash at my place those 1 or 2 days you can let me know, and I'll put you on the Caspian gl and maybe Elder too if we have a leftover spot :tup

I went to Ne Obliviscaris in Eindhoven (Netherlands) yesterday and saw one of the most intense shows I've been to in the last few years.
The songs sound great in a live setting and both the musicians and the vocalist really deliver.
Really special band which I only discoverd a few months ago but one of my favorites right now.

Go see them when they are playing in your town!

Next is G3 in 2 weeks.

2018 will be a great live-year
1-18 Fates Warning
1-28 Arch Enemy
3-31 Ne Obliviscaris
4-14 G3
6-12 Neal Morse
7-15 Dynamo Metal Meeting (with Sons of Apollo and Leprous)
10-1 Halestorm

That would be really cool! I'm not sure I will go to Elder tho, next period is going to be really busy, and I also have GIAA and Olafur Arnalds the week after, and Bevrijdingsfestival the week before. But if I can afford to skip classes the day Caspian plays I'lll let you know. :azn:

Also thanks for the guest list offer! but I already have tickets for Caspian. Really looking forward to that show  :metal

I saw Trivium with Venom Prison and Power Trip on Sunday. Venom Prison wasn't my kind of music (death metal) and they were way too loud for opener. Due to my sensitivity to loud music, I stayed back (almost) the whole concert. Power Trip sounded awesome from there. (BTW check them out if you like thrash metal, I think everyone there enjoyed it).
Main act of the evening, Trivium, was great as well. I loved their dualing guitars and vocals (clean + harsh or harsh+ harsh ;), lead guitarist is insane, drummer is the best they ever had. I expected Heafy to sound worse live (I heard some stuff lol) but he's fine when he's in his range and growls are pretty good. One of the highlights were Heart From Your Hate and Beyond Oblivion, back to back, audience went nuts. I guess it was because Easter, venue wasn't really full and there was open pit for moshing in the middle (and also, that venue is really wide and short) so I could easily get all the way ahead during last song of the encore (In Waves), it was fun :laugh: Also, I caught Matt's pick :metal
And I knew exactly what to do. But in a much more real sense, I had no idea what to do. - Michael Scott

Yea, saw this as well, coming to NYC, but I am seeing both at ProgPower.  Wouldn't be against seeing Alestorm again, but I'm not sure it'll be a different set at all (Progpower usually gives bands at least an hour set) so not sure I'll see that show on a Tuesday night.

Yea, also Tarja is playing in NYC right before ProgPower.  A lot of the bigger bands at ProgPower end up making a NA tour surrounding that show, which helps the rest of the country get to see these bands.  Was wondering when more acts would start announcing tours.  We also have Angra doing the same.  I know JLB said he wanted to base a tour around PPUSA, but I'm not sure what's going on with that anymore.

I was holding out for Vanden Plas last year.  I was disappoint.

So far this year, Angra are on the docket.  I'm also on the lookout for Redemption, Nocturnal Rites, Manimal, Labyrinth and Triosphere.

Oh, and I'm in like Flynn for ProgStock

I found out Caspian is on the same day I have tickets for: The Ocean, Rosetta and Telepathy. I prefer all 3 bands over Caspian :lol that's how much I love this line-up. So unfortunately have to pass on Caspian. Maybe you're interested in Russian Circles? Believe they play near the end of May

Oh shit, completely forgot about GIAA, gonna get tickets when ome DUO gives me my money again, definitely want to see them again . Gonna see if I can convince some of my Haarlem buds to join us this time (doubt it though, 21 euros is a lot for us compared to most gigs we go to and they're not huge GIAA fans). Elder I will definitely be attending, would be awesome! But I understand school comes first

Such a fun time at Bon Jovi last weekend.  My gf and I had a good time seeing him last year so figured I'd pick up some tickets for this year as a fun concert to go to together on a Saturday night.  My tickets were in the nosebleeds since it was already about $90 for the cheap seats and I didn't want to spend more than that for a band who only has a handful of songs I really enjoy.  Anyway, it appears we timed our beer/bathroom run just right.  Right after they played You Give Love A Bad Name (3rd song) and while I was in the bathroom, someone from the venue approached my gf waiting outside for me.  Asked her "Is it just you and the guy in the bathroom?  Do you want seat upgrades?"  I heard my GF yelling for me while I was pissing.  I was really confused, but happy to find out the good news when I saw our new tickets.  We got upgraded to row 20 in the front floor section!  Got a nice private elevator ride down from the nose bleeds to the floor and shown to our seats up front.  I couldn't believe it.  Bon Jovi sung a couple songs from the crowd, right near our new seats.  Couldn't of asked for a better experience.  Pretty similar set (just a couple song changes) from last year and we also got Runaway (my favorite Bon Jovi song) for his encore.  Speaking of encore, right before he finished the last song of the set, we rushed the aisle down to the front.  The security came and kicked everyone else who followed back to their seats, but not us.  We got to stay up close in the aisle for the entire encore  :metal Also worth noting that Bon Jovi concerts would be a great place for a single older male to pick up girls. 

Bon Jovi Live at Sold Out Prudential Center
and some time stamps:
The moment after getting the upgrade
Bon Jovi grabs a lady from the crowd to hold and sing to
Shortly after that as he heads back to the stage, he does one stop right by me and takes in the crowd.  I think this is my favorite clip of the evening.  He looks so happy.
Making our way up front for the encore (Runaway/Wanted Dead of Alive/Living on a Prayer

My local amphitheater is doing a sale on a few of the metal shows this summer with $13 lawn tickets for Friday the 13th.  So I scooped one up for this show that I don't really like either band, but feel there's potential to be some serious drama:
