I got a Xmas gift from my Boss (the Chiropractor).  He wasn't going to have an x-mas party so he brought us Sushi for lunch and gave us a card....and in my card was....

Two tickets to see Aerosmith and Motley Crue this Wednesday.  I like Aerosmith...so I'm going to go with my friend.   I've never been to a rock concert before.  Do I really have to throw my panties on stage?  Is it a mandatory thing at these type of concerts?

That's one thing I hate about living here in Potatoland, no one comes here...Sure the Black-Eyed Peas, and the Pussycat Dolls came here...But I don't want to pay $60 bucks to stand 150 feet away from Fergie, and the lovely Pussycat Hoochies. Fergie already has a restraining order against me that makes me do that anyway. I really don't like their music so I'd just be there checking them out...But I can do a Google image search, turn the safemode filter off and see even better images of them...I can find Fergie in her underpants, the Pussycat Dolls in stripper outfits, I can find The Pussycat Dolls faces on the bodies of porn stars, I can even Find Fergies face on the body of ButterBean!

Besides those names is Matt Mays and El Torpedo, Sam Roberts....All I have to say is BOOOOO! The Hip comes here occasionally, but they are always stuck playing with those turds I just mentioned. Occasionally a good Celtic band shows up, but for now....All Ole Dirty has to see live on a regular basis are fucking Emo kids singing about girls & boys that dumped them, and the guys that used to fill their jockeys with peanut butter and Varsol, then give them wedgies in the school bathroom... Life's so cruel for an Emo kid!

Really?  So it's the drummer that gets all the chicks knickers?  Well, the drummer is all the way at the back of the stage.  I'd have to sling shot at least 10 pairs for even one to get close to him.....not sure if I have that many to spare....I only have so many to give out.....and those that get them have to be worth it....so is he a good drummer....is he really panty worthy?  :-s

FIshy is the drummer, so he's used to getting the knickers flinged back at him.
I say throw your ole granny panties that all you ladies keep around.  At least they'll give the stage crew a laugh.

Grrrrr, I'm so jealous of you! And about the whole undergarment tossing policy...I say go for it. When I saw Motley Crue, Tommy Lee had several thongs strung up between the rigging on his drum set, very classy.

Well I just got back from seeing Aerosmith!  Things seem to have turned out quite well for me tonight.  My friend and I got there to find massive line ups....so I took my tickets to the closest security guard at the front of the line and asked him where I need to go.  He said "well unfortunately that would be this long line up". So I just laughed and started to turn away.  He called out to me and said...just come on through right now...so we slipped into the front of the line up and was in withing seconds!  No waiting outside in the cold... sweet!

We were seats one and two from the isle with a really good view of the stage. While Motley Crew was performing some guy was walking down the isle with two beers in his hand.  He stops right by our seats, looks over and offers me his beer.  At first I thought he was joking but he was serious.  He chatted for a minute or so and said he'd be back.  So I got a free beer!  :D

Aerosmith came on and they were amazing.  The have their performance down to an art. 

I didn't know the opening song but the second song was......can you guess.


I kinda hope we get stuck
Nobody gets out alive
She said Ill show you how to fax
In the mailroom, honey
And have you home by five
   ;)

Steven Tyler seems to make dry humping the floor work for him....not sure if anyone else can pull it off.   :P

The second best song of the night..."sweet emotions".....the bass player did a 3 min (or so) solo and then slipped right into sweet emotions...it was fuckin hot!

I spent the whole night screaming...so my voice is now deep and throaty. 
I'm  hoping I don't sound like Vera De Milo on the phone at work tomorrow... :lol:

Manage to get a pic on my friends camera so I might just come back and post it in here when I get it from her.

*yawn*   Sleepy time.....

Good times JDub.  Glad you made it home with all your undergarments in tact.  Or did you?

Yes they were still on when I got home but that doesn't mean they didn't get moved around at that concert.  Lots of booty shakin going on, but only to Aerosmith.....never to Motley Crue.  Wasn't too impressed with them..they kept calling us fuckers....  Who wants to pay big money to have some fuckin old beef jerky with a huge ego call me a fucker.  I don't care if my girlfriends call me that....but some dried up old, hair band has been.....trying to milk that same old crusty act.....no thanks.   So all I have to say to Motley Crue is.........

Awwww, well, don't take it personal Sohcahtoa........Usually I'm not harshly verbal like that.....I guess I could have been more subtle......but I couldn't figure out how to do that and get my personal opinion across....haha.  Maybe if had more than one beer from that dood, things might have seemed different?? Maybe??

I'm sure outside of my opinion Motley Crue is a really.......a really.......I'm sorry I just can't....aaaahhhhh......must........resist.......urge........ to slam the Crue.......ok I'll just go away now.  :)

Jack White has connections to Cape Breton.  I knew there was a reason I liked this band.

I'll be seeing them at the Bluesfest in Ottawa :)

White Stripes head north

Detroit rockers embark on full tour of Great White North

By JANE STEVENSON -- Sun Media


 

 
White Stripes frontman Jack White says it wasn't his recently confirmed Canadian roots -- he's a distant cousin of acclaimed Cape Breton fiddlers Ashley MacIsaac, Buddy MacMaster and Natalie MacMaster -- that led him to organize an ambitious cross-Canada trek this summer.

Rather it was a combination of enthusiastic Canadian audiences and not getting to play enough Canadian shows that made the Detroit blues-rocker decide to travel the Great White North in a big way, with drummer and ex-wife Meg White, in support of The White Stripes' new album Icky Thump, in stores Tuesday.

"We never got a chance to do a real tour of Canada -- it's always been something that just never actually happened," the singer-songwriter-guitarist said recently down the line from Nashville, where he was only a few days into tour rehearsals with Meg.

"We've been kind of upset about it every time we come back from finishing an album's worth of touring, we'd say, 'You know, we didn't get to do Canada again.' 'Cause we always have great shows in Canada. So this time before we even started I said, 'Look, we're booking that first. And not only are we touring Canada, we're going to go everywhere in Canada this time.'

"And also, I made it even more of a challenge to tell the booking agents, 'Well, we also don't want to play the major town in all these strange places either.' That's too easy. There's no beauty in taking the easy way out."

The White Stripes' tour of all of Canada's 10 provinces and territories might be unprecedented, at least in rock circles, as industry insiders can't recall an occasion when any other band has done this.

The tour begins a week from today, in the Vancouver suburb of Burnaby, and wraps July 16 in St. John's, Nfld. At least a few of the shows will be videotaped by the band.

Along the way they'll make several unlikely stops, including in each of the territories: June 25 in Whitehorse (Yukon), June 26 in Yellowknife (Northwest) and June 27 Iqaluit (Nunavut). Some of these remote shows sold out in minutes.

"Yeah, we've been hearing great things -- we can't wait to get up there," White said.

"It's definitely hard work. It's not an easy thing to do and that's probably why it doesn't happen very often. But I think it's really worth it. It was definitely worth it on the last album, when we went and did a full tour of South America. That was really our first experiment in doing that, and that really was a great thing to do. It's almost (disappointing) at the end of the tour, because everything else almost can't compete. We did South America first last year. We should have done it last 'cause nothing could top it."

The White Stripes' stop in Glace Bay, N.S., on July 14 will see the duo -- who used to be married -- celebrate their 10th anniversary as a band.

"I've never been, and no one in my immediate family has been, to Nova Scotia. So it's a big deal, and we're all very happy about it."

White will bring his pregnant second wife, ex-model Karen Elson, and their 13-month daughter Scarlett on tour with him.

"I've always wanted to go. I've been hearing about it since I was a little kid, so it'll be nice to finally to see where a part of our ancestry came from, and then maybe meet up with some people there too."

White heard about his supposed family ties to MacIssac and MacMaster a couple of years ago. "So now it's nice to hear one of my cousins said it was true. I've never met them but I'm fans of them. I've seen Ashley perform on television, and Buddy MacMaster as well. When I was younger I saw him on Channel 9, we called it in Detroit. Canadian television."

White said the 10th anniversary show in Glace Bay on the eastern shore of Cape Breton is "sort of meant to be, I think. That's really good the way that turned out."

He didn't know if MacIsaac or MacMaster might attend that show.

"I don't know yet, exactly, but that would be nice to meet up with them."

He was more circumspect about whether a fiddler or piper might be joining the band on stage, given some of Icky Thump's Celtic-tinged songs, such as Prickly Thorn But Sweetly Worn and St. Andrew.

"There might be some surprises, but I can't tell you yet," he said. "I don't want to say it out loud and then it doesn't happen. We'll see."

White admitted the Canadian tour is both a logistical nightmare and a money-losing proposition. And he didn't seem to care.

"It's the challenges that make beautiful things happen," he said. "When you collide things together, or you give yourself not a lot of time, or you make it harder on yourself, then something interesting might happen. Like, for example, this tour of Canada, maybe some of these shows will be a disaster, I mean we have no idea. We've never done it. But maybe there will be one brilliant show that will make it all worth it. Or maybe they'll all be brilliant."

Ultimately, it's a strong connection to our country that seems to be the overwhelming motivation for White.

"We grew up in Detroit, half the licence plates I saw during the day had Ontario on them," he said. "I grew up across the street. And then not only that, I grew up in (the Detroit neighbourhood of) Mexican Town, so an all-Mexican neighbourhood with nothing but Canadian cars driving around. I had a very North American upbringing, right by the bridge to Canada."

So I saw The White Stripes last night at the Bluesfest.  WOW, what a show.  It is like they were very Zeppelinesque and very original at the same time.  If you guys have a chance to see to their show I highly recommend it.   Man that Jack White boy can play guitar!

Hard to believe that the Tragically Hip Concert in Halifax is only about 3 weeks away!!
I hope you haven't forgotten about this CHJim! Make sure to get the night off buddy :)

I bought tickets for my mother, Dave and I to go to an April Wine concert that is just outside of Halifax at a baseball field. After I bought the tickets and I was taking a look at them and I realized it said "19+ only" :shock: It wasn't advertised anywhere else except for on the fucking tickets!!! I checked websites and ticket sites and found nothing :x So now I have to try and get into it without getting IDed :roll: Its this Saturday. Wish me luck!!

I guess its common sense to figure its a 19+ concert... its April Wine for fuck sakes. But I didn't put two and two together.
