My 100th rock show consisted of a solid performance by Poison. LiveNation actually did something cool and sold tickets for $10.30 with service charges the day before the show, since nobody originally bought tickets. Even with this deal, the stadium was far from packed.
Of what I can remember, the highlights were “Ride The Wind,” “Fallen Angel,” and “I Won’t Forget You.” I was a bit disappointed that they didn’t play “Cry Tough.”
Overall, it was your typical Poison show: predictable but a good time.
The opening bands were Dokken and Sebastian Bach. I love them both, but once again I spent too much time in the parking lot, hanging out with some cool people, thus missing the opening acts.
The next shows I am going to see are both on Wednesday and both part of the LiveNation $10.30 ticket promotion. I am going to the Mayhem Festival at Nassau Coliseum which begins at 2:00 to see Black Tide, DragonForce, Machine Head, and Disturbed, then I am driving to Jones Beach at 8:30 to see Stone Temple Pilots. I am giving Scott Weiland one last chance after the horror show he put on in May at PNC Bank.
