Now "Kid Rock" can fall into the obscurity Nugent has occupied for how long now.

So, is Nugent playing the Monroe County fair in rural Mississippi this week?

I think that show at the county fairgrounds falls in between a free concert at the local casino one county over from Monroe and a show preceding an independent pro wrestling match down the road in the middle school gym. Guns allowed but no masks.

Does your change of heart have anything to do with Springsteen's outspoken political viewpoints? You wouldn't be the only one. Some of those who have been offended by Bruce's liberal slant have gravitated to Ted Nugent and Kid Rock and I say good riddance.



My change of heart has nothing to do with his politics, just his music.

Bruce has always been an outspoken liberal.
His fans, especially here in NJ ,are both conservative and liberal.
We know we'll get a political PSA (Public Service Announcement) at most of his shows.

In 2004 he joined with with Moveon.org for the Vote for Change Tour to
support John Kerry.

When NJ started to look competitive, he added a show in NJ.

A lot of people at that show had Re-elect George Bush Tee shirts on.

Springsteen, while not the same prolific writer/performer as he was when he was on the cover of Times and Newsweek at the same time or when he performed at Madison Square Garden as part of the No Nukes concert sandwiched in between his Darkness on the Edge of Town tour and The River tour, is still relevant. From his Broadway shows to his collaborations with Obama has seen to that. And don't be surprised if he is doing stadium shows in Europe and the US beginning in the spring of 2022. I might be more inclined to agree with you about his relevance when he starts playing county fairs.

Having said that, rpbobcat, be sure to get your hands on the just released video of the above-mentioned No Nukes concert.

Most of the classic singer/songwriters just are not as good at it as they get older. Roger Waters once said that the best songwriters all have/had an axe to grind. Besides himself, he named Neil Young, Bob Dylan, and John Lennon as examples.

Maybe it's harder to stay pi55ed off at an older age with millions of bucks in the bank... unless it's faux outrage like that comical "kid rock" thing. If you can call a 50-something year old a "kid." (maybe mentally he is)

That role he played in "Joe Dirt" was soooooooooo him.

As far as mainstream rock by old guys, that last AC/DC album was surprisingly not bad. It sounded just like stuff off "Flick of the Switch" and that was 1983.

Kid Rock fans can enjoy his latest masterpiece, which might set a record for most f-bombs and other highly intelligent lyrics (kind of ties in with greencat's rant on rap music): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=agvibm7Wqy4



By the way, he didn't even really write that song. Those rednecks in the video with him wrote that around five years ago. He simply took it and threw a heaping helping of ignorance and vulgarity on top, to pander to his KKK base and all.

The actual song untainted by his BS...

Guess it depends on how you define "relevant".

I've been going to Springsteen shows, since he played O.U.'s Folk Fest.

Been to well over 80 shows,(stopped counting at 80) all over the states.

In this area, it used to be next to impossible to get tickets to shows, except from scalpers, or if you were lucky enough to get "drops".
Still remember waiting on line for hours,outside Tower Records.
Or online at Izod Arena or Giants Stadium the day of a show waiting for drops.

On his 2016 tour,none of his 3 Metlife shows sold out in advance,even though they sold a lot less seats.
My wife and I got good seats,at the box office,the day of the shows.

He used to sell out 10 nights at Giants stadium,the day the shows went on sale.

He hasn't done any touring for his recent albums.
All he did was a "movie for Western Stars in 2019.

This indicates to me,that he's not as relevant or at least as popular, as he was.

Springsteen on Broadway was O.K.,but very expensive.
People liked it, in part,because of the small venue.

Seeing him in concert with the E Street and Seeger Sessions Bands at the Asbury Park Convention Center was much more "intimate" and fun.

As far as a 20202 Stadium Tour, I'm not optimistic.
A number of people,including my wife and I, noticed how much trouble Bruce had walking across the stage during S.O.B.

Saw him do a couple of songs with Joe Gurshkey a couple of years ago.

The video was up on you tube.
He had on really heavy duty knee braces.

Just don't see him doing a rocking 3 hour show anymore.

No Nukes was a Concert I tried,but couldn't get seats.

I actually got the CD's and DVD's the day they came out.

Hoping I get the vinyl records fro Christmas.
