Did you hear about Led Zeppelin’s comeback concert?

If you can’t tell from my last post I’ll just spit it out – I love music. Music of all kinds, but my favorite is Rock n’ Roll. Especially classic rock.

I’m sure that everyone has a band or two – from any kind of music genre – that is not only an all time favorite, but who’s music can bring back memories of earlier times. There are some songs that make me feel like a teenager again when I hear them playing.

Led Zeppelin is one of those bands. I just love their music. I think I’ve got every record they ever produced. Chris is a huge Zeppelin fan too.

So you can imagine how stoked we were when we heard that Led Zeppelin is getting back together for a concert at the 02 in London on November 26th. To the best of my knowledge that’s their only planned concert. If Zeppelin fans are lucky perhaps they’ll plan a tour for 2008. Now wouldn’t that be fantastic!

The concert is a tribute to Ahmet Ertegun – the founder of Atlantic records who died last year. Robert Plant, Jimmy Page, John Paul Jones and John Bonham’s son Jason will get together at the O2 Dome to play at this tribute concert. Apparently other rock legends such as Pete Townshend, Bill Wyman, the Rhythm Kings, Foreigner and Paolo Nutini will also perform. All of these artists were associated with Ertegun at one time or another over the years.

Unfortunately there’s absolutely no way that we could travel to London to see the concert. It’s just not possible for us. My only hope of seeing their comeback concert is if it’s either shown live on TV or if it’s at least filmed.

I know that many of my readers live in Europe. Perhaps some of you are planning on getting Concert Tickets and attending the show? If you do, I hope you take photos and make some posts about the concert because I’ll want to hear all about it.

If you live in the the EU and really want to attend the concert you might want to visit Viagogo and sign up to be notified if and when Tickets for this concert become available.

Actually Viagogo seems like a very interesting website. It’s supposedly the leading ticket hub in Europe.

It’s basically an online ticket exchange where people can buy and sell tickets to live events such as the Led Zeppelin comeback concert, Arts and Theatre tickets, and even Sports Tickets for football, rugby, horse racing and other sporting events.

I don’t even know if we have a site such as this in North America, but I’d love it if we did. I mean, say you really have your heart set on attending a concert. You could visit the site and see if anyone has listed extra tickets for the event. Of course it works well for ticket holders that bought tickets for an event, but then find that they can’t attend for some reason and need to sell their tickets quickly.

That certainly sounds a lot better than standing outside of an event location hoping to either buy or sell your tickets to those passing by doesn’t it? Much more secure. In fact here’s Viagogo’s guarantee:

At viagogo, every transaction is guaranteed. To support this, we offer full ticket tracking, managed logistics and live customer service support.

* Buyers: Once you purchase a ticket or win an auction and receive a confirmation email from us, viagogo makes sure that you receive your ticket on time for the event. If a problem arises and you do not receive your ticket, viagogo will provide similar or better tickets at the same cost.

* Sellers: We collect the money once the purchase occurs so we can make sure that you get paid.

I don’t know about you, but with that guarantee I’d be happy to buy or sell tickets through Viagogo.

Keep Viagogo in mind the next time you hear of a concert, theatre or sporting event that you’d like to attend.

Oh and if anyone attends the Led Zeppelin comeback concert I’d really love to hear all about it. Remember me!

Dancing racing … peppers?

This weeks theme is Music

Usually it’s hot peppers making people dance, or well maybe dash off to the washroom, but in this case it was the peppers that we dashing, dancing and racing!

I think it was the 7th inning of the baseball game when, during a short break, three Ranchero peppers came out to entertain the crowd. I’ve seen them do this before so this must be a regular feature for “Ranchero dip” .

The music that was played during the “big race” was la Cucoracha (I think). It was amusing to say the least. There were three peppers racing in all, but the yellow pepper got tripped early in the race. As you can see in this blurry photo the green pepper was in the lead and he? won the race.

My brother the baseball fanatic

My brother, the one that lives in the Toronto area, is a huge baseball fan. So much so that one of the first things he suggested for our family reunion that’s coming up at the end of August was that we all go to a baseball game. So yeah, we’re going to see a Blue Jays versus the Red Sox game on August 31st.

I’m not a huge baseball fan myself but I do prefer to watch it live rather than on TV. So our get together at the baseball game should be fun.

Anyway, back to my brother. He’s decided that he’s going to get world series tickets too. Oh did I mention his wife is also a huge baseball fan? Yes, they even went on a trip to Florida about 10 years ago just to visit Spring training camps. So I’m not surprised that they want to finally go and see the World Series.

Have you been to the World Series? If not – would you be interested in seeing a game if you could?
