Eric’s May Concert Events
Here are the May concert events that I plan (hope) to be at.
5/7 Van Morrison @ Verizon Wireless Amphitheater
Not pretty to look at but beautiful to listen to, Van Morrison will take the stage at Alpharetta’s hot and still fairly new Verizon Wireless Amphitheater @ Encore Park. I could certainly do without ever having to listen to “Brown Eyed Girl” ever again, and although it will certainly be played, what keeps me listening to Van the Man is his fantastic catalogue of songs such as “Caravan”, “Into the Mystic” & “And it Stoned Me”. If you like Van, and have yet to visit Verizon Wireless Amphitheater, this is a great excuse to check it out. As far as outdoor concert sheds go, this place is fantastic.
5/15 Norah Jones @ Cobb Energy Center
Here’s one that’s easy on the ears & eyes. The lovely and talented Norah Jones will perform at another fairly new music venue the Cobb Energy Center. Having just released her latest album “The Fall”, Norah has hit the road with a completely new lineup of band members that is full of talent. This will be a great concert for a “date night” and my wife and I will certainly be in attendance. Hope to see you there.
5/29 Neil Young @ The Fox Theater
Definitely not easy on the eyes, and some say not easy on the ears as well, but Neil Young ranks right up near the top as one of my personal all time favorite songwriters / musicians. There are not many that have as extensive a career as Neil Young, having been part of Buffalo Springfield, Crosby Stills Nash & Young, Crazy Horse and as a solo artist. Known as the “Godfather of Grunge”, Neil Young’s performances are typically full of crunchy, raw, gritty rock & roll. Not this time around however. Neil is out touring a solo acoustic performance that will showcase his more gentle side. The show should be chock full of timeless classics, at a timeless classic of a venue to boot!
