They keep dragging me back in

I didn’t want to see Poison in concert this year. The setlist has been practically the same for the past decade (with a few covers from Poison’d sprinkled in here and there), and with no new material I don’t expect that to change in 2012. Combine that with the fact that they are touring with Def Leppard…again…and it’s an easy decision: I’m not going.

That changed today when the opening act was announced

Lita Ford.

I’ve never seen Ms. Ford in concert. I was supposed to go to Iowa a couple of years ago for Rock Gone Wild, but that event was cancelled. Then she was going to play at a local club in Covington with Queensrÿche, and something happened. I don’t remember if the show was cancelled or if I had other plans that I couldn’t get out of, but I didn’t get to go then either.

I had the extreme pleasure of speaking with Lita on the telephone during my tenure as host of Hard Rock Nights, and I hope to add her to the list of musicians I have seen in concert his summer.
