90'S TOUR 2
The 90’s are back! did they ever left?
who would have though that in 2009 musical groups that began their carrers in the 90’s were going to be crashing the party in the new millenia?
With the return of bands like BLINK 182, LIMP BIZKIT (touring in europe), JANE’S ADDICTION, CREED, NO DOUBT, PHISH (justin’s hippi-fave), THE CRANBERRIES, THE PIXIES, SUGAR RAY and STONE TEMPLE PILOTS (2008 tour)
and adding the continuing carrers of NIN, PEARL JAM, ROB ZOMBIE, 311, PAPA ROACH, GREEN DAY, WEEZER, DAVE MATTHEWS BAND and THE OFFSPRING
it certainly made this a bonafide year for 90’s acts. Am i missing anybody?
If you were to take these artist off the menu, even in this economy it would have make for a lousy touring season. I saw 6 of these artists this year. one of my all time faves the pixies were one, love kim deal. i believe she is one of the best bassist ever! how about jane’s addiction comeback, perry showing grace and style as a great frontman.
311 continues to entertain their audience with their craftmanship and style and in turn brings out our intensity in the mosh pit which to me was the hardest this year.
Lastly theres that little band from lemrick, ireland who told us in 1994 that there was “NO NEED TO ARGUE”. the cranberries were the biggest surprise for me. i had forgotten about them until i received an e-mail from the nokia theater, ( i have email alerts from all the venues in the city and you should too whereever you live) with the announcement of the tour and the actual concert date here in new york. i was so high, naturaly! cause i love them and having seen them back in 96 i felt this was an event not top be missed.
2009 is coming to a close. i had a great musical year and i’m hoping that you did as well. the survival of these bands is a testimony that when true musicanship and originality exists, bands can set themselves up for a long time, outliving the genre in which they started and bringing us more amazing concert memories. this is my confession.
