RATT Redux

Yesterday I received an email from Ticketmaster notifying me that the band RATT was coming to town.  This made me laugh.  Do people really want to go see 50 and 60 year old dudes with straggly hair and eyeliner singing "Round and Round"?  I guess nostalgia has its place, but how hard do you want to cling to the past (hello Uncle Rico Syndrome)?

The picture of the band in the announcement was teeny tiny, which made me suspicious.  I clicked on it to try and see how well the band had held up since the mid-80's when they were pretty popular in certain circles, and I still really couldn't get a good visual of the band.  It looked like maybe the wrong photo had been uploaded onto the website.

I scrolled down a tiny bit further on the announcement, where these reviews of their recent performances were listed.  HAR!!!! 

Have you ever gone to see a band and been terribly disappointed? I can think of a couple craptastic concert experiences, but I don't have the heart to call the bands out at this point.

First of all:
What I am going to say is sad.
They were here for a concert about 3 years ago.
THE AUDIENCE SUCKED SO HARD that they were so demotivated that the concert had no soul. There was no rapport. Steven was making his best effort, people were not singing, they did not even look at the band and they were all about getting drunk.
It was terrible, this band has been on my bucket list for years and the concert was so insipid that I have to have another go at it.
