it looks that the beastie boys are looking to do a national tour. the problem is, they haven’t completely announced the entire tour yet. but they will, and we’ll provide updates on the dates posted.
i can’t wait until they’re close to chicago. i had the pleasure of seeing the beastie boys on their 1998 tour in support of hello nasty. it was an unbelievable show. highlights included a wonderful mix master mike intro to the tune of rush – tom sawyer and the rotating stage.
the concert was definitely a highlight of my summer. i was going to be starting my senior year in high school and i had just starting seeing my special lady. i remember never seeing an arena so filled with smoke, and i’ve been to three phish shows at the same venue (allstate arena). although, in 1998, it was still known as the rosemont horizon [before they sold out]. hopefully, this upcoming tour will produce as many good feelings as i took away from my 1998 show.
