Tomorrow is the Dead Can Dance Concert!

Posted by Scott Holstad on September 4, 2012

Wow. The concert I’ve been waiting to see since March is finally here. Actually, I’ve been waiting to see Dead Can Dance in concert since at least 1988, back when I first started listening to them. When they broke up in 1998 without my having seen them, I was distraught, knowing I’d never get a shot at seeing them live. Well, they’ve reunited, put out their first studio album since 1998 — it’s great too! — and they’ll be in Atlanta tomorrow night. My friend, Chris D, and I are going. He’s driving down from Virginia to Chattanooga, where he’ll hook up with me and we’ll continue on to Atlanta. We have spectacular seats! Second row, near the middle. Close enough to see the sweat on Lisa Gerrard and Brendan Perry. LOL! That’s awesome. I’m hoping they’ll play most of my favorites, as well as some songs from their new album. I’m sure it’s going to be a quality show. I have a DVD of them in concert from years ago, and it was a magnificent performance. I hope to take lots of pictures, and I’m thinking of pressing Record on my iPhone and recording the whole concert so I can listen to it again and again. My only disappointment is that my fiance is not going to get to come along. She has to work and the seats were so damn expensive, she decided not to go. Pity. My fear, however, is that I’ll be too sick to enjoy it. I’ve come down with something in my chest and a cough and headache. I’m taking OTC drugs to ward it off, along with vitamins, so hopefully I’ll be fine by tomorrow night. The show starts at 8 PM sharp, so Chris and I will be there in our DCD t-shirts, ready to groove.
