Iíve got tickets for New Order/Pet Shop Boys at the Hollywood Bowl in October. It will be my third time seeing NO, but my first for PSB.

Never got to see either and still listen to both- a lot.
So do my poor kids
 :lol
That should be a cool show.

Amazingly I finally saw TOOL out here of all places- and they had their entire crazy art collective thing happening still.
Still can't believe they hauled that entire production out here and set it up.
Easily one of my favorite bands and that whole experience kind of evades description.

Who knows when I'll get time to see another show out here- given how infrequently big things happen.
Relax, all right? My old man is a television repairman, he's got this ultimate set of tools! I can fix it.

I have tickets later this year (rescheduled twice already) for Motley Crue, Def Leppard, Poison, and Joan Jett & the Blackhearts together.  Should be a glorious mess. :)

Saw Rob Zombie last night.  I tire of his songs if they are left in regular rotation, but it was spectacular show!  I definitely recommend.
There were giant screens, gigantic costumes & all the hits.  John 5 adds a lot to the experience.
One of the opening bands referred to Zombie as "the godfather of this ---steaming pile of meadow muffin---".  I wanted to yell "---That which is odiferous and causeth plants to grow---, Al Jourgensen is!", but kept my thoughts to myself.

Mudvayne isn't my cup of tea.

I was never a fan of Static X, but liked a bunch of stuff that they played that was new to me.  Guess I need to give their back catalog a listen.
I probably wouldn't have enjoyed it as much with Wayne Static fronting.

It's been a while since I've been to a concert.  I thought $10 for a beer was insane before.  It's $18 now.
They were selling mixed drinks for $25.
The venue did permit you to carry in one 20oz bottle of water which I took advantage of. 
It saved me enough to pay for a redbull when it got close to my regular bedtime.

Ministry, KMFDM, and FLA were supposed to do a concert here 2 years ago.  Monsters of industrial or whatever.  Tickets were expensive and Iíve been burned before so I had ticket insurance.  Then COVID so I cashed in the insurance.  Then they canceled and Ticket Master refunded my money.

So fast forward to spring 2022, concert had been delayed two more times.  KMFDM and FLA dropped out and then eventually Ministry threw in the towel.

The show allegedly went on with, of all bands in the world, The Melvins.

King Buzzo can ---smurfette--- about Nirvana all he wantsÖ I made $160 off Ticket Master.

Would have been better 30 years ago but it is what it is.

Follow up:  Got sick on Friday.  Didn't test positive for covid until Saturday morning.    I was probably ok until leaving in a walking dead style herd.
