Upcoming concert

In the next 3 months, I'll be going to a concert. Since the period since I last attended a concert can be measured in decades, this is a big event.

I will likely be subjecting you to a review in the near future ("though the first 3 songs were full of energy, the drumming in the second set was almost pedestrian in its tempo..."), which I expect you will delete immediately. In fact, I will preface the title of the review with "delete this post:" to make it easier for you.

But enough of that. Who would pull me out of my decades-old retirement?

Please put your guesses in comments. A free souvenier program to the first person who guesses correctly. Oh, and no fair posting and ruining it for everybody if I happen to have told you already.

    They’ll be in your area in the next 3 months…

  2. My guess is Green Day. You were so favorable with your review of "American Idiot", it just fits.

  3. Well you did say it had been decades

  4. Steven says:

    My guess is U2.

  5. Steve Johnson says:

    Gotta be the Stones. duh 🙂

  6. Scott Allen says:

    Neil Diamond!

    Ok, wait … Jethro Tull?

  9. Garry Star says:

    Cream in NY! I’d love to go myself…

    Depeche Mode? I know they’re coming in the next few months, and I’d like to go to that one. One of the last concerts I saw was DM on the Violator tour (1990?) so the timing might be about right?

  11. Brian says:

    It’s got to be Paul McCartney… A decades old man for a man that hasn’t attended a concert in decades.

  12. Tim Marman says:

    I also think it’s Sir Paul…

  13. James Curran says:

    Well, I’d guess "Uncle Bonsai", except their concert is only two months away……

  14. Brian says:
