Tom Waits ~ Glitter & Doom

I spent most of last week attempting to fly back and forth from the west coast (more on that later). So I missed this treat ~ a link to a recent concert by Tom Waits. If you visit here even occasionally you'll likely know that I am a big fan [-1] [0] [1] [2] [3] . . . I have read a lot of whining about the hoops one has to jump through to not only get tickets to shows in Waits' current tour but then prove that you procured said tickets legally. It truly seems like a pain in the ass. But the whiners invariably lay blame for this at Tom's feet instead of wondering if, just maybe, it might be the ticket scalpers who have created this dismal situation. And, of course, there is the question of which other performer you know has allowed a recording of a two-and-a-half-hour concert to be posted, gratis, on the web. Just wondering.
