What's the last concert you bought tickets to?

Talk about things that are not necessarily related to music or the guitar.

:) I like him....my wife doesn't. He's at Merlefest every year.

Yesterday I bought tickets to see, "Tellico" and, "The Hall Sisters." The two concerts are part of the Ol' Front Porch Music Festival, in Oriental, NC., on Oct 5 & 6. All the concerts on front porches are free, but these two are at an outdoor venue....The Red Rooster....which is attached to a restaurant/bar, called, "The Silos." (....they're not actually silos. They're grain bins. They erected two old, used metal grain bins and connected them with a "lobby/kitchen" ....one side is a restaurant and the other side is the bar.)

"Fado Night" in São Miguel's (Azores) capital Ponta Delgada. Fado is not very common on the Azores. The monthly "Fado Night" is one concert series of the Jazz bar, where my wife and I performed in June.
The ensemble consisted of Portuguese Guitar (Lisboa model), Classical guitar and four different male singers. They did four sets of around 45 min, each. Very interesting, even if you do not understand more than maybe 25% of the words, because Fados can be different. There are sad, happy, fast and slow songs. I never heard male Fado singers before and, as a matter of fact, I think I like female voices better for that kind of music - maybe this will change as soon as my Portuguese will be better :D

Mine. I couldn't even give any tickets away, so I bought one in order to brag that I had a paid attendance gig. :mrgreen:
Whenever I am not ready for my music lesson, I call it 'facing the music'.

Ana Vidovic came to my town 2 years ago. I bought tickets. My wife got ill and needed a hospital stay. I gave the tickets to a young guitar student.
I wish she would come here again!!!

I don't get to concerts anymore.

The last one was...last summer, a noon performance in a lovely old church with a super high wood ceiling.

The artist was David Jacques, a Quebec City guitarist who has made some wonderful Baroque recordings....

The performance was great and the songs were varied; I don't have the programme.

In fact, I am very impoverished, memory wise. David Jacques had in his possession some very early Baroque guitars, one of which was played or owned by Galileo's father. I can't make this up. He spoke to members of the audience afterwards and I didn't have the presence of mind to go ask him what that guitar was worth, in dollars today.

I did ask the usher how high the church ceiling was and he didn't know. It was close to five storeys high.

Graspop: it's a metal festival. I do not kid you.
Did I tell you I have a wide taste? (basically anything but hiphop)

Just got in from Las Vegas. We went to see a classical guitarist, who didn't show up.
Our first night there, Wayne Newton, was performing in our hotel, nice show.
There was a group called "The Bronx Wanderers". They were a kind of "Jersey Boys", "Dion and the Belmonts" group and very good.
