I have been following bands on the road for a little over a decade now. To you drivers out there, yes there is an office person who gets out there on the road too, although for a different purpose. I have traveled great distances to see the bands that are on my “band bucket list”. I have traveled as far as Las Vegas, NV for the sole purpose of seeing Elton John with his Red Piano; Grand Rapids MI to see Roger Waters The Wall; and AC/DC on multiple occasions, just to name a few.
There is nothing quite like getting out there on the road going from city to city, state to state and meeting people all around the country. What better place to do that than at a rock show, where everyone is in their element. This year has been one of, if not the best to date!
I followed The Rolling Stones to two of their dates on their Zip Code Tour hitting Minneapolis and Kansas City. Both of these shows had attendance in excess of 60,000 people. Later this year, I will follow my favorite band, AC/DC on their Rock or Bust Tour for a week seeing two shows in Detroit and Chicago. I will also be hitting The Who Tour in Milwaukee, WI last week as they celebrate 50 Years of Rock.
Last week I went to downtown Chicago for some 90's rock. So drivers, the next time you have a reset somewhere far away from home, see what’s going on around you musically, you may be surprised at what you’re missing out on. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org to learn more about my travels and I would love to catch up on yours too!
