Tom Petty, Cinderella, Black Crowes Tickets

I’m lucky to have a friend like Carl. We look out for each other, share countless laughs with each other, and refuse to grow up together.

Although we love to argue about the superiority of his favorite band (Queensryche) and mine (Extreme and Pearl Jam), there are many bands that we share a love for.

Six years ago, we went to one of the best concerts I’ve ever attended. The Black Crowes opened for Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers at Great Woods in Mansfield, MA. Two bands that know how to rock, brought it the whole night, and left the crowd satisfied.

Carl and I usually catch “The Crowes” whenever they are in the Boston area, and we went to see them two years ago as well. I have yet to see these guys live and left the show thinking I didn’t get my money’s worth.

I am a child of the 80s, and I played Cinderella tapes 328 times in the late 80s and into the early 90s. And when I met singer Tom Keifer in 1990, he did not get onto the tour bus until making sure everyone that wanted an autograph or picture got one. Even though they have gone from headlining Great Woods to playing at the Hampton Beach Casino Ballroom, I’m glad these guys are still touring.

Looking forward to another Cinderella show this summer, and my first Queensryche show…
