Reviews of Concerts I Have Never Seen

I heard a glowing review of the Crosby Stills Nash & Young show held in Toronto last night from a co-worker this morning.

She said they rocked the Air Canada Centre and gave the crowd good value for the money. Especially her money since she scammed the tickets for free.

The first half of the show was geared toward anti-war anti-Bush sentiment and paid tribute to the fallen.

The second half of the show was more hit oriented and got the crowd really revved up.

Everyone was busy rocking out to Rockin’ In The Free World and nobody harder than Stephen Stills apparently.


He pitched forward and fell down still playing and stayed down for the duration of the song. Crew members tried to help him up and he just motioned them away and kept floor rocking.

They finished out the song, brought him a towel as he had cut his hand and then the band left the stage.


Someone then came out and announced that the show was over as Stephen needed to tend to his arm. Having no encore bummed the crowd a little as it would have me.

The only good to come out of this is that it freed up David Crosby to offer his impregnation services to every willing woman in the stadium.

You are awesome. I review television shows I've never seen by watching the E! True Hollywood stories about them.

Grant Miller said...

Awesome. I feel like I heard your co-worker talk about being there.

Beth said...

Excellent review, Dale! Elvis Costello's playing at Chastain Amphitheater here in Atlanta on Monday. Will you be reviewing that show as well?

Reese said...

Feel free to review a movie you've never seen on my site, ole Daley. That would be so rad.

That sounds like a damn good time. There's nothing like a little musical bloodshed.

Dale said...

That's what I heard too Shroom.

Why watch seven seasons of a crap show when you can find out all about the good stuff in an hour right Coaster Punchman? You're awesomer.

Grant Miller - You make me laugh. That's awesome. Especially since I don't find you funny. So, doubleplusgood.

Gee Beth, that's not a lot of notice. I'm not sure if I can't not be there and still write about it or not. You say hi to Elvis for me and I'll write about what his reply was. Deal?

Reese, almost anything for you so I'll definitely think about cooking something up for you.

Mayhem, madness and rock n roll Andi, nothing like it!

Lemme tell you something. ALL musicians bleed for their art. Okay?

Dale said...

I absolutely believe it X. Dell. Don't cut me.

Saviour Onassis said...

I didn't read this blog entry, but I highly recommend it to everyone. I hear it's just great!

x.dell is right, you know. I've actually been known to bleed on my art! Which is pretty hard in the minor keys...

Dale said...

I didn't read your comment Major Saviour but I think you might like X. Dell's comment which I heard was pretty accurate. Watch it though, I think he's got a knife.

that must have really delighted the one solitary willing woman in the stadium, if she wasn't too wasted to realize what a great boon (not baboon) had just befallen her.

Dale said...

Talk about not wanting to even hatch those eggs huh BD? Very funny. Stills befallen, Crosby befuddled.

Dale said...

Hope they let you off work early at the Wal*Mart Anne, I hear it's worth it. But then I hear a lot of things while I'm not really listening. Good luck.
