Rock Concert Movement #698...

...buying tickets to see Blue Man Group for the eighth time (four stage shows, four tour shows).

I could have bought seventh row for $75 a ticket (plus another $15 in taxes and other charges), but opted instead to go for the front row on the side at roughly half-court for $50 each. I decided it wasn't worth another fifty bucks to be in a crowd, looking up the whole time, with less access to beer and people on all sides. Here I can put my beer on the hockey wall and take a picture of a Blue Man when they walk by into the crowd. :)

Can't wait!

I know you have a crush on Tracy Bonham, but Mike Relm is a really fun opening act. I missed Tracy during the main act, though, because the new female lead just doesn't have the same power. Both the Current and Exhibit 13 were dropped from the show in Pittsburgh (I guess 9/11 tributes are only relevant for so long), but the comedy acts were longer and more refined. Fun as always, though I'm kind of hoping that they come through with a brand new show sooner or later. :)

I saw Mike Relm and I wasn't impressed. The new female vocalist was also on the last one I saw, and she was pretty average.

Mike is cool for 5 minutes and then becomes boring.

I give Mike Relm more credit than that. He could never carry a show or anything, but he serves his purpose well. He entertains, he gets the crowd in the mood, what more do you expect from an opening act?

I thought he was really good.

I would rather watch a comedian or real musician.

Yeah. I'd see Tracy Bonham solo. Opening acts don't have to suck.

I don't think Mike Relm sucks.
