    I will definitely be there for EW&F come hell or high water, one of the best shows I've ever seen. I was hoping Chicago would be in tow or close to EW&F, but it doesn't look like I'll get that lucky. I'll try to get to Gavin Degraw, but it isn't nearly as high a priority as EW&F. Looks like as with last year, I'll be going mainly for one concert (that was 3 Doors Down and ZZ Top last year).

    You would have to pay me to attend any of those shows.

    I'd stick around for Gavin Degraw, but the concert wouldn't be my main priority for the day, just extra. That's actually an absolutely horrible line-up.

    The lineups have always been horrible, though. The artists have been shallow and irrelevant.

    But its what the general public wants. Despite my not liking any of the artists, you cannot deny that it's impressive that Universal can get them and that most guests will love them.

    As opposed to geriatric and/or tribute bands at the Experimental Food and Wine Park of Tomorrow.

    I really enjoyed Train a couple of years ago. And The B-52's last summer. But that is the old guy living in my body that I refuse to acknowledge.

    Summer Concert series has never been what Mardi Gras is. Summer Concert Series does however sell some extra tickets and makes Universal more enticing to visitors. They've always gone for mass produced type music for Summer Concert, and even Mardi Gras, but atleast there is more variety in the latter. The first year of Summer Concert they had LL Cool J and Jordan Sparks. Following years acts have included Pitbull, Train, Rob Thomas, Nelly, Third Eye Blind, Boys Like Girls, and other mass produced acts. Say what you will about you not liking them but these artist include REO Speedwagon and Pat Benatar all sell records and all are mass produced music.

    Anyone else here planning to be at the park tomorrow for Earth Wind & Fire? Hoping it rains in the afternoon so I don't have to go and wait 3+ hours for a close spot by myself (got there 5 minutes before Gavin Degraw and got pretty close thanks to the rain). :lol:
