Not far from either the Renaissance, or Union Station Marriott, this group will be performing on August 2nd.
Could anyone help me with information about this group, if you have seen them, or know about their music. They will be at the Fox Theater, and it is a very nice place to see a show.
My big concerns are loudness, drugs in the audience, ?
If I have to worry about something, I don't need it.
They came thru again, I don't always go to these type of shows. Last Summer they got me good seats to see that Irish Group with Bono. I didn't go, it was August in St. Louis at Busch Stadium and being outside, I gave the tickets to a friend that I owed a favor to.
AMEX has been very good to me!
Only two times they could not get me (Non broker) tickets, today was one of them. Did not get tickets for the Cardinals Home Opener, but it was a rainy bad day in St. Louis, and we have the NRA convention here as well. The Cards lost to the Cubs and I was glad I didn't go.
I was in St. Louis about 3 years ago. Mucho Funo!
Apparentally, according to my mother, I was conceived in St. Louis, and she carried me around for 8 months before being born in Pittsburgh! Therefore, I guess technically, I have been in St. Louis before physically, but not conscientiously, 45 years ago, and finally made it back those 3 years ago! LOL!
I wondered why when I got there I felt some strange feeling come over me!
jerrycoin -- not sure about the present state of affairs for this band, but they were very big in the anti war movement and drug culture. Definitely not my kind of people or music then or now. But one thing's for sure...you won't know if you'll enjoy it unless you go. Enjoy
If it were a different venue, I would be concerned with drug use, but the Fox is a high grade venue and likely will control the crowd. As far as the group is concerned, at one time it was crosby, stills, nash, and young. The music is folksy rock and roll. I do not want to get political, so I won't go there, but I will say that I very much enjoyed their music and felt they had the pulse of a nation back in the 70's. Think Woodstock, but not heavy metal. I would definitely go, but recognize you are seeing a partial ensemble of the original group, and folks that are well into their 60's.
That's what I needed to know, so Thank-you!
I will go, and it seems like most of the shows I go to are "Folks into their 60's, 70's, and 80's!
Still have a good time with these entertainers.
Enjoy Hollywood!, If you get a chance go have a meal at one of my favorite places to dine there, The Avalon Hotel! It is really wonderful to dine by their pool!
Thanks for the info! I really doubt if Nancy will go with me (Our I will go), she has never heard of them, and I am not much better. I had better stick to The Letterman, Tony Bennet, Johnny Mathis, etc., do you see a trend here.
NU, you know your service, as well as others to our country is appreciated by my friends and me.
These are 60s icons and Neil Young is not with them,. They are part of the era when sex,drugs and rock and roll were the mantra of the players and the audience. Might be loud but most of their die hard fans are now on Medicare and their new drugs will be Lipitor and Viagra. Take ear plugs if you're worried,
I saw Eric Burdon (and the Animals) here a while ago and my ears were ringing for a week, but I loved the show.
I would have enjoyed seeing Eric! What an Animal!
Every since I read your post I have been humming that song about, "It's been a hard life", I am not totally sure of the title, but I also remember, "There is a house of the rising Sun"?
Lastly, I really expect some "Hippies" at the CSN Concert! It will be a real experience and a lot of laughs. Yes, I will need my "Ear plugs". If I needed them for the Letterman then you know I will need them at the Fox Theater for this show.
boy wish I could recall that one Jerry. Eric lives in Palm Desert environs, is an avid golfer, and puts on one whale of a show. Steps on stage, plays for an hour straigfht, then stops for 15 seconds before starting "Monterey" to say he was not there. A short break and another hour of rock--what memories,
My husband attended a Crosby, Stills and Nash concert last night. He said it was absolutely fantastic! He said the songs were great, the guys were great (and funny) and the harmonies were quintessential CSN. One of them, can't remember which one, was sort of limping across the stage even (over 70 and bad knees), but that aside, he had nothing but stellar things to say about the concert. He did say that the audience - well, I don't think I can get it right - but something along the lines of being a bunch of old people, and well behaved! I don't think you'll have any concerns about having to endure any uncomfortable or unsavory behavior.
They were a little before my time, but right in the zone for the husband and his friends. The bands of my adolescence were more along the lines of Journey, Styx, Aerosmith, Queen, Chicago, Elton John and the like. Never cared for Moody Blues or Pink Floyd, but did like CCR and the Beatles (of course).
