I'm going to have to give it a miss. $140 for standing plus travel and accomodation to London on a Saturday night.

For two people that's EASILY a $700 night out.

Reviewing the dates and opening acts, I'd prefer Thundercat and Anderson Paak. I also saw Haim. I really don't understand that. If I've heard them on the radio, I don't know it, but I did see them on SNL a while back and it was awful.

Damn, i promised my 10 year old son I would take him. It’s gonna cost an arm and a leg :yikes:

Unrelated to this tour, Alain Johannes who was in What Is This with Hillel, flea and Jack (and who I’ve only just realized has had a big career in music with QOTSA and Chris Cornell) found some mega old tapes from when they were at school and called Anthym. Pretty damn cool man!

All of this is sweet (except the hit to your wallet). I took my kiddo to NINJA...he was 13 I believe. At the time I wanted him to see EA in the band :lol: . He did, and I am glad we went. As for Alain, I had heard of him for years but didn't know of his RHCP connection. That song is rough, but good. I like the author's comparison to Rush and Sabbath.

Thanks man! I got the 2 cheapest tickets I could, they are seated right at the back but it’s ok coz I saw the chili’s a lot of times 96-08 including some pretty small club shows and I reckon my boy will just be stoked to be at a rock concert! I took him to see Slash and Myles Kennedy in Verona 2 years back and he loved it until he crashed and burned 20 minutes into a never-ending guitar solo 😂

Welp, Paris and London sold out and new dates were added. North America goes on sale today en masse

Very nice. It's been 17 years since my kiddo was 10. I remember being at some motorcycle/picnic type event where George Clinton was playing and was so excited to show him. He was having none of it. :noclue: Enjoy!

Thanks SR! I’m excited about it! I’ve been listening to the support bands for the last week, pretty cool stuff too!

DB, some of my best memories are of taking my kiddo to concerts. Jane's Living Colour, NIN, Fleetwood Mac, Prince, etc over the years have been just great. My only regret is we didn't do more. He texted me yesterday implying we were going to this show, so I guess I am going to have to get lucky or fork out a king's ransom.

Just checked and it looks like you got A Paak and Thundercat. The latter's Come Down is a lot of fun. It's on the album Malibu, which is great but I think Oxnard is his best.
