I Shall Wear the Bottoms of My Trousers Rolled

Michael and I went to a rock concert this weekend and I barely made it through the opening act. (Which, okay, was pretty abysmal -- electric violin and whistling into the mic and OMG could every song sound a bit more exactly like the last one he played?) But by the time the (kick-ass) headliners went on at 10pm, I was yawning and barely staying upright on my stool. (Which I'm apparently too old to sit on for 3+ hours, because my back was KILLING.)

My last rock concert was Peter Gabriel (at the Meadowlands!) on the "So" tour, so you can imagine.

What was your last rock concert?

My last concert? Hmmm, it was so long ago...I think it was The Stones on the Steel Wheels tour back in '92? Boy, do I feel old....

I think the only rock concert I've ever been to was Bruce at the Meadowlands in 1984.

I guess I just don't get out much?

Does Makin' Music count?
Oh god.

Bob Dylan at the Beacon in NYC, maybe 3 or 4 years ago.

Robert and Allie saw him in Philly a year or two ago, and it was his best concert in ages. I'd decided the Beacon was my last try, and I made a mistake, but such is life.

Does James Taylor count as "rock music"? That was. . . hmmmmm . . . about 10 years ago. Wow, that's pretty sad.

So my first concert was the Pink Floyd Division Bell tour. I pick this one to talk about because it was so entirely kick-ass. Last one? I can't even remember. Maybe the Barenaked Ladies?
