Granted, you don´t get the full track coverage that you would on television, but the sights and sounds just don´t come through on television. Man, when those things are at full song, even your earplugs are are a bit shy on protection. The colors are so deep and "liquid," it is just unreal. Montreal was a terrific venue, but the Indy race has better viewing, since you can see so much of the track. My Audi S4 buddy went the last two years, and raves about the multiple corner views.
As for the concert, the Stone Temple Pilots were mediocre, at best, but Aerosmith put on one hell of a show. Seems like every one of their old songs is a damned rock anthem. We had a blast.
