Caught both Beasties shows in Chi a few months back, they kick some ass!

Haha and it's good to see them finally playing a show with Sheryl Crow...?

As much as I hate the fact that outstate MN is turning us into a swing state. Im glad I live in the bluest of blue liberal cities & Im super hyped for this show.

Wow - that MN line-up is a cream dream! 3 of my favs that seem like they'd never be on the same stage, until now.

you know New Hampshire puts up with so much during the Primaries through election day. we've been bombarded with political attack advertisements for a couple years now. can anybody show some love and play a decent concert for a cause in this great state?

livin' free and quietly in the woods. let's bump some tunes and vote!

on a side note, the US economy has taken a hit these days and who is sitting quieter than a mouse in a church? DICK CHENEY. Yeah Halliburton's stock is stronger than ever. represent. do you really think he's on life support? i bet his sippin' some scotch in Dubai. at least muslims can put up with him.

"people don't forget" if nobody shows some love, we'll remember this when the next election comes around and mess with you all.

sounds like a great idea as long as both mccain and obama are represented equally, which won't happen. why not address all the voter fraud taking place in milwaukee? or every other major city for that fact?

Thats really weird they are playin the coliseum in Richmond. There are much better venues here. The coliseum has the worst sound in Richmond, everything there echoes. Switch to the National or Landmark Theatre please!!!! Whoever scheduled that should be shot. However, I have been waiting for a loooong time to see the Beasties, missed them in Germany by a day last summer.

wow first the RNC and now MN being a swing state has been influxing the twin cities music scene so hard. Mos Def and Beastie Boys in one month is like a dream for me! Kyle Gas i met you at Rothbury and now i cant wait to see the D, thc is baking!!! wambamsam RAGE already played in the twin cities twice for the RNC(once on the State Capital acapella and a full show at the Target Center which i was there for both) no way they are coming back.
