    I’ve never consciously heard of Adrian… but his CV contains bands and musicians whose music I love…. I am always in search of new music and this looks like a great opportunity.

      What a blast from the past, grew up in Long Island, hit CBGBs and loved his work forever, especially with the Talking Heads. Live right around the corner. Would be quite amazing. bad ass guitarist and a rare show. Ciao!!

    One of the truly great guitar players. I would love to see Adrian Belew in concert. Plus free tickets gives me cash to spend at The Lamp before the show and get drinks & food.

    This guy kills it on guitar! David Bowie, King Crimson & Frank Zappa all recognized that and employed him…

    Very cool, very cool indeed.

    we got a ticket for my husband to go alone to this show but what a treat it would be for my son and I to be able to join him if we won the tix…. thanks for the shot!!

    I’ve been a fan since “Adidas in Heat” – would love to hear his current live show.

    Adrian used to live across the river from Cincinnati, years and years ago. He would play with a local band the Bears. I would love to see what he was up to these days. Plus I enjoy his material from the King Crimson days. I would enjoy seeing him in such a fantastic venue!

    Oh, my goodness! Love, love, love him so much! I broke 5 ribs this summer and lost a ton of money in wages, so I couldn’t afford the tix, but I’d sure love to celebrate being pain-free at this show!

    We love Adrian and would love to win tickets!

    Mr Belew is one of the great living legends of guitar. And can sing pretty damn well too. Been dying to see him perform again. It’s been a number of years. Thank you for the opportunity!!!

    His vocals on Three of a Perfect Pair and Elephant Talk – to name two examples of a hundred – set him apart. I saw him once years ago with his Power Trio, and then had tickets to see him more recently but couldn’t go because of a family emergency. I would love to see him again.

    Twisting….twisting the night away! Nice!

    This is too good to be true….isn’t it? I love progressive rock! What the heck.. can’t win if you don’t play, right?

    Yes please!

    Adrian Belew is who I want to see and hear!

    In return for free tickets. I will attend the van and RV show and play Motor Bungalow on repeat at the top of my phones volume!!!

  20. Mike September 13, 2019 at 12:42 pm #

    This is going to be so very cool. Please hook me up with tickets.

    Taking my hunny for his birthday! Winning would be so incredibly helpful for us!

    Adrien is a legend who has played with the legends.
    I love how his group travels around in a little van taking themselves all around the country–their travels have been fun to follow on instagram.

    What a talented and humble trio!!

    An Adrian Belew show never disappoints; his compositions are like mathematical equations that weave in and out to create the ultimate unexpected prog soup. His storied resume with the likes of Zappa, Bowie, Byrne and not to mention an Oscar winning score combined with his love of technology and improvisation make him one of my favorite artists, the most unknown DNA coursing through 40+ years of music. Seeing him at the intimate Aladdin will be unforgettable!

    I literally just found an old concert t-shirt from 1988 I got at a concert of Adrian’s awesome band The Bears and I just lost enough weight to wear it again! Met him and the band that night and he autographed an earlier solo album for us. Amazing guy and guitar player! Haven’t seen him live since the Inner Revolution tour and would love to see him again!
