July Concerts

With the Ticketmaster settlement I was able to go to a couple shows for free and had bought for a couple others so over 15 days in July I went to 4 shows in 4 different cities and saw a total of 10 bands. It started with a trip to The Linc in Philadelphia on July 14th for 3 bands Mach 22, Wolfmother and the headliner Guns N Roses. The second show was a trip to Atlantic City, NJ on July 23rd to the Taj Mahal Etess Arena for Alice in Chains weird that they had no opening band they had a bad comedian instead ugh! The third show was a trip to Camden, NJ on July 27th to the BB&T Pavilion for Slipknot and Marilyn Manson.  The Final trip was Friday night July 29th to Scranton, PA for Saint Asonia, Alter Bridge, Breaking Benjamin & Disturbed. We didn't attempt any autographs and were not in a position to any picks, sticks or set-lists. As you can see from the pictures wasn't up front for any of them as the last 2 shows were free lawn tickets from ticketmaster settlement and Had Club level for G-N-R.
