^^My friend's dad's band played with Foghat not too long ago. They also toured with AC/DC as their opening act.

Anyways, I'm dissapointed to say that I've only seen The Allman Brothers Band and Lynyrd Skynyrd.

In no way were either of the concerts bad - they were both spectacular, but I wish I had gone to more.

If I had only gotten into Classic Rock sooner I probably would have seen a lot more bands because my dad has seen so many live acts.

I believe I'll be seeing The Allman Brothers Band again this year, but on top of that I'd like to see Eric Clapton, Phil Lesh and Friends, and whoever happens to come by.

^^if by New Jersey you mean Giants Stadium, then yes, that's the one. It was great, but it made me realize that arenas/theaters/ampitheaters/small venues > stadiums.

^^BrainDamage, do you know if Yes is actually going to be touring in '07 or are you just saying that you hope the do?

As far as I know, they aren't "the lineup" that most of us love so much, but it's Yes, so if they did come around again I'd see them without a doubt.

Technically, I was Downtown New York for a week over the summer just for vacation. But I took that train all the way out to Long Island alone and managed to stay alive all concert. I met some pretty cool guys down there.. I love New Yorkers.
