jones beach theater

today was the first day you could buy tickets directly from the box office at the jones beach theater. you save a substantial amount of dollars purchasing them this way but you don't always get the best seats and some concerts may be sold out by this time. we usually go to at least one concert there every summer. it is an outdoor theater and the stage looks as if it is floating on the water.I have never been disappointed. it is a great way to spend a summer evening.

Nice line up of events. Which would I choose? I've never seen Eric Clapton and that show is tomorrow. I love James Taylor's "Lonesome Road" among others. Doobie Brothers, Chicago. I saw Joe Cocker the same night I saw Jimi Hendrix perform, and Janis (but she just came on stage to tell us she would perform the next day at Devonshire Downs in 1969). I hope my crude simile can be forgiven but Joe Cockers' movements were as if he was a puppet being manipulated by a spastic puppeteer. Donna Summer is pretty "Hot Stuff." I'd like to see the Allman Brothers but I'm stuck here "Tied to the Whipping Post" and there's a man down there. Might be your man, I don't know.

Very very funny TG-I envy you having seen Joe Cocker & Jimi Hendrix! You lucky man!
I'm going to see Jetro Tull & Yes this summer here at Jones Beach. I've seen them both many times over the years & never tire of them.
