Seeing a band past their prime is kind of sad. Saw The Police in 2007. Sting sang Roxanne two octaves lower. Andy Summers looked like he needed a nap about half way through the set. Sting's son's band was an opening act.

Also, saw The Rolling Stones in 1988 thinking it might be one of the last chances to see them. Joke was on me.

Agreed, and to be fair although I have never seen Led Zepellin play live (I am far too young), I did see Jimmy Page play live at the forum when he was with the Firm...

I was there as a teenager.

I saw Jimmy Page at the Closing Ceremonies of the 2008 Beijing Olympics. He looked old then.

He looked ok when he filmed "It Might Get Loud" with Jack White. That was not that long ago.

As a backup, I just wanted to let you know Def Leppard is touring. Just leaving that out there.

Looks like they are playing the Forum on October 7, 2018, with Journey. Yeah, probably a good time. But, and I don't mean this in a bad way, that ain't no Led Zeppelin.

Led Zeppelin is god-tier. Def Leppard is good fun-tier.

BTW, I saw The Who in 1988 (or was it 87?!) They were excellent. And unlike the 'Stones, I think it may have been their last big tour.
