... found to still have it. Philip Bailey can still belt out a tune at
stratopheric frequencies.

They are touring with Chicago, a pairing you wouldn't expect but it works
quite well, especially with both band's horn sections are combined on a
couple of tunes (September ruled).

Chicago was a bit disapointing. Too many rambling ballads, too many 10
minute long (bad) flute solos. Most of what they played from Chiacgo 16 or
earlier sounded great through.

The most interesting part of the show was the demographics of the crowd.
We sat on the lawn and it really showed that kids dont care what color each
other is when running around and playing.

2 songs with both groups, about 90 minutes of EWF, 20 minute intermission,
about about 60 minutes of Chicago followed by an 4-5 song encore with both
bands.

Saw them at an IT conference and they were great...very enthusiastic
and professional for, well, playing at an IT conference of mostly
middle-aged, white geeks. Better than many bands I've seen/heard
lately in their "prime."

Several colleagues commented afterwood on the "I didn't know they sang
that song" mantra. Scored a free CD afterwards, woohoo!

Philip Bailey is my MAN..... the only guy still living that sings falsetto
*almost* as good as Eddie Kendricks. (Hey to Russell Tompkins Jr., you don't
quite have it anymore.) Philip was adorable younger, but he's gotten a bit
pudgy lately. ;-) Still, IWHI.

Chicago was my very first concert.....right after Chicago 17 came out and
Peter Cetera was still with the group. I didn't expect much then, but they
were fantastic ....

I saw The Beach Boys in their heyday, their salad days, their early
days, their grim days, and their marrow sucking days. I like The Beach
Boys, but their concerts have always been pleasant but pretty bland affairs.

My favorite rock concerts have been Chris Isaak (a few years ago), The
Who (1969), and Janis Joplin (Full Tilt Boogie Band tour. 1970).

None of them, as good as they were, approached the performances of Sam
Bush and friends in an open air concert, Gary Burton, Scott Hamilton,
Sonny Rollins, or Malcom Dalglish.

I wouldn't disagree with that assessment at all. For me, the epitome
of a concert is one that is relaxed, relaxing and one in which I don't
have to be concerned about bodily harm (which unfortunately seems to
be the case at far too many concerts).

I know you're a Beach Boy fan, but you can feel that way at just
about any show on the "washed up circuit." They're great
atmospheres, real family affairs. Especially up in the lawn seating.
Just kick back, dance, hang with all the other 30 and 40 somethings
while the kiddies run around. I can get in the back gate for almost
any show in the Va Beach area and those are the about the only ones I
take advantage of.

I hadn't even planned on EWF/Chicago, but after this thread, I might
try to go. Sounds like it would be a blast.

That's true. But the Beach Boys concerts have been that way from
pretty much the beginning (ok, I wouldn't really call them FAMILY
AFFAIRS, but the relaxing, relaxed atmosphere).

I've seen the Beach Boys a couple of times. The 2 most memorable were at
the Ventura County Fairgrounds about 90 minutes north of LA. It's situated
right on the coast. Brian Wilson pointed out to the rolling surf as the
sun set and said that they used to drive up to Ventura frequently to that
beach. Later I figured out that it was probably to get away from their
dad.

Also saw them in 1985 at the Boy Scout Jamboree (I wasn't a scout, just a
local kid) at Fort AP Hill, Va. A couple 10k kids were here. I was just
close enough to see the theremin being played during good vibrations.

They put on a damn good show. Never seen them with Blackie Parish on drums
though.

People I know who aren't particularly fond of U2 (but love concerts)
freely admit that U2 puts on a Hell of a show. I concur. The ZooTV

Thanks...

Puttering around online, the Elvis concert seems to have been June 28,
1973 and the Sabbath concert has to have been on February 12, 1974 -
both at Kiel Auditorium (since torn down and replaced in place by the
Savvis Center).

The next concert after those two would have been the so-called
SuperJam '76 at Busch Stadium. Ted Nugent, Jeff Beck w/ the Jan
Hammer Band, Fleetwood Mac (between Fleetwood Mac and Rumours - they
played some Rumours material) and Jefferson Starship (Red Octopus)
were the bands in order. I cannot locate a date for that one.

They are touring with Chicago, a pairing you wouldn't expect but it
works quite well, especially with both band's horn sections are
combined on a couple of tunes (September ruled).
Chicago was a bit disapointing. Too many rambling ballads, too many
10 minute long (bad) flute solos. Most of what they played from
Chiacgo 16 or earlier sounded great through.
The most interesting part of the show was the demographics of the
crowd. We sat on the lawn and it really showed that kids dont care
what color each other is when running around and playing.
My dad has been obsessed with Chicago and The Who since the 1970s. I just
recently got him an MP3 player for his PDA and filled up a memory card of
all the Chicago and The Who albums I could.

His comment: "Well, great, but does it come in quadrophonic?"

... found to still have it. Philip Bailey can still belt out a tune
at stratopheric frequencies.
They are touring with Chicago, a pairing you wouldn't expect but it
works quite well, especially with both band's horn sections are
combined on a couple of tunes (September ruled).
Chicago was a bit disapointing. Too many rambling ballads, too many
10 minute long (bad) flute solos. Most of what they played from
Chiacgo 16 or earlier sounded great through.

Chicago quads were the very best of the best. Good mixing and channel
separation.
