    Wow! Billy Joel leads all ticket sales with 613,002 tickets sold. Who'd a thunk it?

    ChristianThis article speaks of a pop band. In sleep medicine, RBD stands for REM behavior disorder.
    RBD is a Mexican pop music group that gained popularity from Televisa's prime-time telenovela, Rebelde. This exposure created an active fanbase of both teenagers and adults within some countries of Latin America, and the United States. Adhering to these new fan's requests, RBD began recording major-label albums in 2004. To date, RBD has achieved major commercial success with cross-over appeal in non-Spanish speaking countries, most notably in Brazil.

    Billy Joel puts on one helluva show...seriously...some of the most impressive displays of musical talent and virtuosity have been at these shows...it goes without saying that he may be the finest american songwriter of the past 100 years and he might be the finest pianist popular music has ever seen, but the band he has with him is amazing...if you've never had a chance to catch him, try to...I've seen him twice. Once in the New Orleans Superdome and another at the Summit, or Compaq Center in Houston. Both times you'd have thought you were in a small bar...he plays with an amazing amount of intensity but is so casual and personal with the audience, it seems like he's in your living room. he also throws in lots of neat curveballs...In New Orleans they kept breaking into songs like House of the Rising Sun, Mississippi Queen, etc. In Houston they jammed on ZZ Top and Bach. Yes, they decided to play Bach...and it was amazing.

    Just interesting to note: Billy Joel averages almost $77/ticket sold. On the other hand, the Rolling Stons who were one spot ahead, averaged almont $170/ticket. I guess thats what happens when you're not married to an uptown girl anymore. Remember, you can't always get what you want.
    Thank you folks, I'll be here all week. Try the fish.

    I'm surprised Warped isn't on there.
    Does this not count people who are still on tour or something?
    So you broke down, trying to leave town, I broke down crying on your return. You left me feeling hopeful, I'll never see your face again. You made for a bad lover's liver. You stole all the covers and busted my head. You made me such an asshole, I wish we'd never met. I'm tired of being bored. I'm through with the headaches. Hiding my hands that tremble like earthquakes. Under the table, under the daytime sky, Good Fucking Bye- Good Fucking Bye, Alkaline Trio

    Bon Jovi's still going. They got a show here soon, I think. Or maybe they already did they show? They suck live, so I really don't care.

    I'm surprised not to see Warped on there. I for one wouldn't be interested in it. But it seems like something most people our age is interested in. All my friends are going. I was offered but declined. Can't stand anything on Warped.

    That's just me.

    Can't believe Motley even managed to make that list, some poor turnouts on the 3rd leg...a few were near sellouts but those were few and far between.
