Awesome, Libs! Let us know how orchestral Duran Duran is . . . that sounds like a great combo. :up
I'm crossing my fingers that I'll have a spare moment for this, but The Decemberists will be playing in Minneapolis in October, I believe. Hopefully I'll be able to sneak away from school and see them. :D
A friend and I are going to see Chaka Khan perform with the San Francisco Symphony on the 29th.
Libs, that's awesome about Duran. My husband is going to AC to see them at the end of the month. I'm so jealous...
I went to see "Generation Motown" in Quebec city on Thursday night and had a wild time. Then on Saturday, I went to see Glass Tiger in Cornwall and that was great as well. :)
I love concerts!
The Rolling Stones arrived in Toronto last night to start rehearsing for their tour. :up
All I can say is WOW! My seats weren't the best in the house, but the experience of such a rare concert was just fantastic! (made even better by the really cool gal, Shannon, that was sitting next to me and also there solo...we had a blast singing and dancing the entire time)

Other biggies for me were the ever eerie Chauffeur done with the orchestra *GAH!*, just amazing! Also Ordinary World with the orchestra....very touching to hear it fully like that. We were also treated to a never before played live instrumental (Tel Aviv) which was beautiful, but not my favorite of the night.
I would definitely travel to see this again if they did it! Can't say enough good things about how incredible the show was.
That sounds wonderful, Libs! I'm so glad you got to go to the show and had such a great time. :yay
Very cool, Libs. :up I'm glad you had such a good time. :biglove
Sweet, Char! :up
I'm stoked because I get to see The Decemberists on Oct. 21st! I cannot wait. :yay
Sleater Kinney is playing the Gothic in Denver on October 14th! :up
I'm excited for that one! :yay
