He was so good! For You, Drive all Night, My Love Will Not Let You Down and so many others! I even got to shake hands with him!

Bruce Springsteen, Wembley. Oh my God. What a show. 41 shots is amazing! But the highlight for me was to finally hear Tougher than the Rest.

I saw what's left of the Monkees May 28th !!! I had a fabulous time... The hits just kept on coming !!! ... Micky and Peter... sound great... have a great group of musicians backing them... There's a huge screen that playing videos from the show and from their lives ... It was a lovely trip down memory lane. I've been a fan the entire 50 years they've been around... Got lots of great photos !!! ...

I have a ticket to see Brian Wilson with the 50 years of Pet Sounds tour in September. Excited to see that, too !!!

Just saw Dolly Parton at ArtPark in Lewiston NY. At 70yrs of age she can still sing great.

Bruce Springsteen at Coventry and Wembley. Great shows. Coventry probably edged it for me as a more intense setlist without pauses and much better sound.
Coldplay at Wembley Stadium. Not a huge fan of their music but an amazing production. Lightshow with computer controlled light up wristbands stunning. Club Wembley is a nice upgraded area in the stadium if you have the chance getting a seat there.

Just came home from seeing Kraftwerk in 3-D at the Hollywood Bowl and it was spectacular! Last weekend was ELO for two nights there . It also was spectacular! And now tomorrow is Black Sabbath also at the Hollywood Bowl. Can't wait!

I just saw the last night of Bruce Springsteen's 2016 Tour in Boston- all four hours and two minutes of it. Unbelievable setlist for the hardcores- he played ALL of the epics. Well, except for Racing in the Street, but I saw that one two weeks before in Chicago, where I had incredible luck in the pit lottery and ended up front and center. I even got to tickle his Fender.

In between those two, I saw Brad Paisley, which was a fun show.

I always forget to tell you, I live 15 minutes from Valkenswaard. As a Bruce fan you might know he gets there pretty often because of his daughter's horse.

Bruce is a very decent guy and apreciates that people over here just let him be

Doesn't really fit into the same genre of music as Meat Loaf but my last gig was seeing Stereophonics in Manchester this summer.

Great gig, they are just an amazing band to see live and it was pretty bad that I knew every single word to every single song.

Just saw "Weird Al" Yankovic in Bethlehem, PA last night and he really lived up to his name

He always puts on a great show, and it was a lot of fun. Thankfully I didn't have an aisle seat when he walked out into the audience to sing / interact with some of the ladies in the audience

I've heard that he's very good live. I'm glad you enjoyed.

I thought you were over her? Didn't you say you were after Taylor Swift now? She's available again, I hear.

But Jessica sends her regards- "Hi, Seb!"

It was! The first show was much longer (and a better setlist, IMO). I wonder if the holiday on Thursday had any effect on him ending a bit early?

Anyway, how was the show? I saw most of it on Periscope.

Shorter show certainly doesn't mean less quality but looking at the setlist for friday I'm a little jealous haha.

It was great though, Perth nearly dropped him during the crowd surf.... how embarrassing lol.

Don't feel bad, he almost got dropped here a couple of times, too. Honestly, I wish he would stop crowd surfing- it's making me nervous!

You're right- longer isn't always better, though I hate it when I just miss a song I wanted to hear. It's even worse if I find out he had it on the set list, then switched it out for something else.

The Piano Guys at The Royal Albert Hall.
Easily in my top 5 of best shows ive seen.
So much heart, fun, laughter and talent.
Probably only second time I've teared up during a concert. The end of second set with bagpipe players was just too much. Amazing Grace has that weird innate power whenever I hear it. It really does something I cannot describe.

Out of the 4 concerts I've seen at RAH, Meat still reigns king but the Piano Guys are easily second highest.
I've seen all my favourite artists at RAH. Very lucky and privileged.

Sad London had another bad night. I hope everyone is and stays safe. I'm giving city visits and concert ticket buying a rest for now considering what is going on.
