Interesting ... I'm still going to concerts. Just saw the Newsboys a week ago. Haven't really noticed a drop in concerts for me. Maybe it's the performers I go see? I have no idea. But I've been enjoying live music. We are researching tickets for ”For King and Country”. Might go to that one.

OLP, Bush and Live - last year around this time in Salt Lake City, outdoor event in 20 degree weather.

Each bank was joking about how difficult it was to play having cramping fingers but it got pulled off. Bush was the middle act but the better performance of the three.

Not exactly a concert, but I went to Smalls jazz club in Manhattan to see Ralph Lalama on Mar. 1. It wound up being the last show, they closed on Mar 2 and haven’t been open since. That’s the last live music I’ve seen .Really sad.

Last one was Iron Maiden Bassist Steve Harris' side-band British Lion on Feb. 18 in a small theater (with about 300 people). Great gig... I was close enough that the drummer heard me ask for a stick, and he tossed it to me.

It's been a tough year, I had tickets for some of my favorite bands ... Tyr, Clutch, In Flames/Megadeth, Alanis Morrisette/Garbage/Liz Phair, Wardruna, etc., etc.

Bebel Gilberto at the Triple Door, Seattle. Sadly that was 7 years ago now. I'm really not a concert-goer though; it's got to be someone I really want to see or I don't bother with the ticket prices and the crowds.

Tower of Power at Brooklyn Bowl, almost exactly a year ago. I had tickets to see Billy Joel at MSG on March 19, 2020, which got rescheduled for September 26th, and then to November of 2021. I've been a big fan of his since childhood, and never got to see him, so was really looking forward to it. I hung on for the 1st rescheduled date, but when they pushed it to 2021, I requested a refund.

My last two live concerts were:

In 2009 the Hollywood Bowl presented "Miles Davis/Gil Evans Still Ahead", featuring Terence Blanchard, Jimmy Cobb, Peter Erskine, Howard Johnson, Christian McBride and Nicholas Payton, backed by an ensemble led by conductor Vince Mendoza. My then father-in-law was in the ensemble and got me tickets. Great show.

In 2010 or 2011 I saw Return To Forever and Zappa Plays Zappa at the Greek Theater. Also a great show, although I thought that Stanley Clarke severely overplayed his hand during RTF's set.

As Duke Ellington said, I don't get around much any more.
