How about concert photos?

So my wife has a sharp intake of breath and tells me the white haired guy 4 or 5 rows in front of us is Giorgio Armani, who here in Milan is somewhere between Emperor and God. People are kissing his hand on bended knee. A cool guy, but he looks more dead than alive. Here’s the back of his head. Didn’t ask for a selfie.

There are many things I’ll never miss about LA when I left, but I must say the Hollywood Bowl is near and dear to my heart. I looked forward with anticipation to the summer concert season at the Bowl every year. Couldn’t wait. Would catch the express bus to the Bowl at a Torrance park-and-ride. Those of you who haven’t experienced the Hollywood Bowl should put it on the bucket list. It is a unique experience.

Yes at Ruth Eckerd Hall, Clearwater FL October 17, 2022. 50th anniversary of Close to the Edge release. Second set was the album start to finish. For such a complicated studio album it sounded amazing live. Steve Howe at 75, I just don’t have the adjectives . . . When I bought Close to the Edge as one of my nine records for a penny from Columbia House circa 1972, I did not fathom seeing it played live 50 years later.

A new extended ballet by Crystal Pite, set to Górecki’s Symphony of Sorrowful Songs.
Female choreographer, female conductor, Nigerian-American UK trained-resident soprano called Francesca Chiejina who was just amazing.
One of the best evenings for a long time.

Sonny Landreth and Cindy Cashdollar on the porch playing some picking slide blues.

Here’s another couple more from Red Rocks shows this summer:

Plant and Krauss


South Park’s 25 (went night 2 when my Rush heroes showed up…crazy unexpected)

Not the greatest pics. I make a very strong effort to only take a couple photos during a show, and leave my damn phone in my pocket.

Which are those? I am head over heels for some of their stuff for sure…specifically Nonagon Infinity and Infest TRN. I caught them in 2019, as well.
