  • One F Jef says:

    Not sure I’d want to see any of these concerts. Where’s the “Unwigged & Unplugged: An Evening with Christopher Guest, Michael McKean, & Harry Shearer” of “This is Spinal Tap?” Or Fleetwood Mac on May 24th? Or Eric Clapton & Steve Winwood? Yeah they’re here in June, but if you want to talk two gentlemen that shaped the music industry . . . . .
