Ten concerts I have attended. Plus a couple more, because I'm a generous guy.
U2: Arco Arena - Sacramento. This was early in their Achtung Baby tour. So they played that entire album pus several of their older hits.
Eric Clapton: Shoreline Amphitheater - Mountain View, California. He played some guitar at this one.
Bob Dylan: San Diego State University. Past his prime a bit, but still a good show.
Elvis Costello: 4th and B - San Diego. Apparently he signed autographs and posed for pictures in the parking lot afterwards. I would've waited for Diana, but not for him.
Blondie: 4th and B.
Go-Go's: 4th and B.
Susan Tedeschi and Derek Trucks: 4th and B. He seduced her with his big
Pat Benatar and Neil Giraldo: 4th and B. A stripped-down acoustic version of "Love Is a Battlefield" was the highlight here.
Pretenders: House of Blues - San Diego.
Bangles: House of Blues - San Diego.
New Pornographers: House of Blues - San Diego. Probably my favorite concert from a lesser known act. Very laid-back and easy-going.
Berlin: House of Blues - San Diego. I think she looked at me. It was awkward.
