The Concert Thread

Dityn DJ James

A coma stole my name.
Back in early 2020 when I saw Priest was doing their 50 Heavy Metal Years US tour near me (New Hampshire at the time) I thought to myself, 'wow, wouldn't it be insane to follow them around for a few dates instead of just doing a one off to see them?'.

Well, here we are. I just bought tickets now, in 2021, to see them in San Antonio, Austin and Dallas. Still doesn't feel real. Seeing them in 2019 was one of the best shows (and experiences) of my life. To cap it all off, I'm taking my younger brother with me who loves Priest. We're making it a road trip. It's gonna be insane. I mean one of the best experiences of my entire life. October can't get here fast enough. And I know that week is gonna fly by so fast. This is the craziest thing I've ever decided to do.

If that wasn't enough, I also got tickets to see Testament, Exodus and Death Angel that Saturday after Priest x3! insane

Got tickets for Die Ärzte in June 2022 Cologne Stadium. They're not what they used to be, but I'll go with my sister in law and her husband, gonna be fun I guess.

Seen them last time in 04 and they played over 3 hours.

My Deftones show was moved to 2022 about a month ago. Oh well.. 2 more weeks until my first concert in over a year. I also learned a hard lesson. Book the hotel now if you're travelling. Apparently GNR has the ability to sell out every hotel in the city of Missoula, so now I get to stay at a hot springs 40 miles away.
