The last real concert I went to was, if memory serves, REM back in the mid-90's at the Shoreline Amphitheater. Fantastic concert.
The last time I attended a concert at Harrah's Tahoe was 1977, when we saw The Captain and Tennille still near the height of their popularity.
This Saturday I'll be at Harrah's Tahoe to see Lindsey Buckingham perform. I've always been a big fan of Fleetwood Mac (in its Lindsey and Stevie configuration), and even had tickets to see them when I was in high school. Unfortunately, Stevie "caught a cold" (which I think was code for "in rehab") and they had to reschedule, dropping the Sacramento concert completely.
I've seen a Center Stage show featuring Lindsey. As a guitarist, and a very creative/artistic one at that, he had seven guitarists on stage with him as he performed, giving a very interesting sound to the music. You might think they would overwhelm the percussion or bass, but they didn't--and it was fantastic.
So as I drove to meet a friend for lunch today, and saw a billboard advertising this Saturday's show, I decided to go. Frankly I was surprised to find that tickets were still available, and I snatched one up. I don't know what my seat is, but the agent told me that it's a very good seat. I guess we'll see!
A few months ago I tried to get tickets at Harrah's for Pat Benatar, but apparently they'd been sold out for several weeks. Not so this time.
I'm looking forward to this little trip. And no, there will be no pictures or bootleg audio from the show!
