I rarely get really excited about a music tour but this one is an exception. The Rage Against The Machine Reunion Tour tickets went on sale about 90 minutes ago and to give you an example of the popularity --> the United Center in Chicago basically sold out in an hour (23,500+) and during that hour they announced another show the following night there. I was lucky enough to get decent tix at one of my favorite amphitheaters that holds about 37,000 including the lawn, but basically all of the 7,500 Pavillion seats were sold out in less than an hour.
This is the first time they are back together and playing since 2011.
Wear some plugs and enjoy the experience. ;) It's my eyes I'm more worried about...my hearing is still good and I've been hitting the big live shows hard the last 10 years with no plugs.
That's a good track! I really enjoyed it at the 1:45 mark and beyond as it was bangin' with a good funky groove and nice guitar. I'd check them out if they were playing somewhere local. I used to live in Orlando and get down to the Miami area so if I ever run across them I'm there.
l see they have played with Anthrax, Nonpoint, and Mushroomhead and other big national acts. I have seen all three of those live, and while I'm not an Anthrax fan I dig Nonpoint, and Mushroomhead is one of my favorite live acts.
My son Ryan, probably one of the best Lead Guitar players in Central Florida. He was asked to play with the "Blue Men" group, but instead now plays for Universal's Rising Star, the best Karaoke Band ever! 2 backup singers, full band and they've been all over! Even to London! Famous folks rent out this place for private parties, like Janet Jackson and people of her stature.
I've seen the Blue Man Group too and might get a chance to see them again in Vegas later this month.
While I used to play the trumpet I don't have any musical talent these days but I'm a huge fan of music. My cousins are very talented musicians and all of them including their parents can play multiple instruments by ear. They were the biggest country act in the Quad Cities area for more than a decade back in the day. One of my cousins, when he grew out of the family band thing, played (and was lead singer) in a rock band that included a former member of Black Sabbath. The money guys wanted him to go big (he sounded like John Cougar and had the look) but he wanted to stay local and play with his buddies. He's now over 60 years old and is back to playing local country gigs. I have a friend of mine my age that stills plays base in the Rockford area in a local rock band. My best friend for years almost made the big stage at one of those televised country music talent shows and his grandfather was on the Today show at over 90 years of age as a songwriter for a song that went big. Unfortunately, my buddy never got any bigger than having his singles played on local jukeboxes.
I am stuck seeing live shows and jamming on the stereo system here as I can't play a lick. ;)
