Before you complain that your favorite musical act didn't make this article--or that it made the one on Louisville's worst upcoming concerts
--let me remind you: I get paid to share my opinions and you probably don't, so mine are superior.
That's called capitalism.
Kentucky Exposition Center’s Freedom Hall
Oct. 6, 8 p.m.
Of course, my ability to get paid for my opinions only goes as far as my my boss is happy. He's an AC/DC fan
, so the Australian band's Louisville stop on its Black Ice Tour is a must-see. All tickets are $91.50
The Showroom, Horseshoe Southern Indiana
Oct. 31, 7:30 p.m.
Rock's quintessential frontman is bringing his "Use It or Lose It" tour to within an hour of Louisville
this Halloween. Daltrey's embarking on his first solo tour since 1985 to keep his voice in shape while his band mate, Pete Townshend, works on "Floss," a new musical for The Who
. Daltrey will be singing songs from his solo work and favorites from The Who, as well as other classic rock songs on this tour. Tickets start at $45
and you must be 21 or older to attend.
Bruce Springsteen & the E Street Band
Nov. 18, 7:30 p.m.
When I lived in Charlotte, N.C., I drove 1,244 miles roundtrip to New Jersey to see Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band
In a week.
So Nashville's a home game for me. And even if you're not as dedicated a fan as I am, this concert stands out for a few reasons:
Tickets start at $35
- it's one of the last on the "Working on a Dream" tour, so the band will be at its best
- Springsteen turns 60 in September and saxophonist Clarence "Big Man" Clemons uses a lift to get on the stage, so who knows when the band will play around these parts again
- they'll perform the landmark "Born to Run" album in its entirety and in order at the concert
with general admission ($98), which provides the chance to stand in the front row, still available.
