Bublé, Bono, Styx: The guys reflect on the best concerts they’ve ever been to

Taking a break from the bleak news about Russia’s ever-increasing power and the continuing mystery surrounding Malaysia Airlines flight MH370, Glenn, Pat, Stu, and Jeffy reminisced about some of the best concerts they have ever seen – and how much more affordable ticket prices were in the ’80s.

The guys all agreed that Michael Bublé puts on one of the best shows they have ever seen.

“[What’s the] best concert you have ever seen,” Glenn asked the group on radio this morning. “Michael Bublé. He's the best for me.”

Another one of Glenn’s favorites is the Brian Setzer Orchestra. In fact, Glenn shared the details of a chance encounter with Brian a few years ago.

"I would love to see a Brian Setzer. Is he still touring? He is fantastic,” Glenn said. “I had my brush with Brian Setzer. We were in Nashville for the Country Music Awards two or three years ago… I have a picture of him someplace.”

It just so happened that Glenn and Tania ended up in the same elevator as Brian and his wife. While Glenn, who was a huge fan of Brian, was afraid that he “probably hates my guts,” it turned out to be quite the opposite.

“We were going now to our seats and… I see this elevator and I see Brian Setzer and his wife at the elevator… Brian looks over and kind of does this double take,” Glenn explained. “And he's like, ‘Hey, Glenn’… I'm like, ‘Hey,’ and just being so awkward and shake his hand and meet his wife and introduce my wife… And his wife said, ‘Could I be really rude? Could I get a picture?’”

“I said, ‘Sure!’ So the four of us took this picture backstage,” he continued. “And I said, ‘I'm just really shocked.’ And Brian said, ‘Why?’ I said, 'I just assume everybody hate me, especially with any talent in music.' He said, ‘No. Love you’… He is really a great concert. Great concert.”

Pat’s favorite concert, meanwhile, comes from a slightly different genre.

“The best of all time: Styx, Paradise Theater Tour, 1981,” Pat said. “They sang Grand Illusion at the Paradise Theater Tour, which was just an extra added plus for me… I was actually 20 and it was Boston.”

Stu specifically remembered spending $80 on U2 tickets for one of their shows in Foxboro, Massachusetts, which seemed like a lot of money at the time. Given how much concert tickets cost now, however, it was actually a bargain.

“I remember seeing U2 at Foxboro, so like a stadium show. They spent like $9 trillion on the tour… This was when I was young, so I didn't spend money on getting good tickets ever, and we got good tickets," Stu said. "They were in the front row in the second section… It was pretty amazing. And this is in the peak of U2. That was pretty amazing,” Stu said. “I still love U2… To me it [felt like] $800,000, but I think [the tickets were] $80.”

Glenn, who was never a U2 fan, has found himself warming up to Bono in recent years.

“I hated U2… [but] I really like Bono now. Especially after that speech he gave. Here's a guy who believes something his whole life, worked hard his whole life, and then [admitted], you know, that's the wrong direction,” Glenn concluded. “He's an honest guy, but that doesn't necessarily make me want to spend however much money to see his concert.”

Everything comes down to the two Senate runoffs in Georgia. If we lose both races, we lose the country. Democrats know this and are pouring in millions to usher in a Marxist agenda.

As the Left tries to hide how radical the two candidates really are, Glenn takes us inside the Democrat war room to expose the wolf in pastor's clothing, Raphael Warnock, and America's Justin Trudeau, Jon Ossoff. Socialism, the Green New Deal, and "defund the police" are all on the table. And Glenn warns of what's to come if conservatives don't activate: Chuck Schumer will weaponize the Senate, and the radical Left will launch an all-out assault to ravage the Constitution.

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) joined the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" to explain how mail-in ballots are typically disqualified during recounts at a far higher rate than in-person, Election Day ballots, and why this is "good news" for President Donald Trump's legal battle over the election.

"One of the things that gives the greatest cause for optimism is, this election ... there's a pretty marked disparity in terms of how the votes were distributed. On Election Day, with in-person voting, Donald Trump won a significant majority of the votes cast on in-person voting on Election Day. Of mail-in voting, Joe Biden won a significant majority of the votes cast early on mail-in voting," Cruz explained.

"Now, here's the good news: If you look historically to recounts, if you look historically to election litigation, the votes cast in person on Election Day tend to stand. It's sort of hard to screw that up. Those votes are generally legal, and they're not set aside. Mail-in votes historically have a much higher rate of rejection … when they're examined, there are a whole series of legal requirements that vary state by state, but mail-in votes consistently have a higher rate of rejection, which suggests that as these votes begin being examined and subjected to scrutiny, that you're going to see Joe Biden's vote tallies go down. That's a good thing," he added. "The challenge is, for President Trump to prevail, he's got to run the table. He's got to win, not just in one state but in several states. That makes it a lot harder to prevail in the litigation. I hope that he does so, but it is a real challenge and we shouldn't try to convince ourselves otherwise."

Fox News senior meteorologist Janice Dean is perhaps even more disgusted with New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) for his coronavirus response than BlazeTV's Stu Burguiere (read what Stu has to say on the subject here), and for a good reason.

She lost both of her in-laws to COVID-19 in New York's nursing homes after Gov. Cuomo's infamous nursing home mandate, which Cuomo has since had scrubbed from the state's website and blamed everyone from the New York Post to nursing care workers to (every leftist's favorite scapegoat) President Donald Trump.

Janice joined Glenn and Stu on the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday to ask why mainstream media is not holding Gov. Cuomo — who recently published a book about his leadership during the COVID-19 pandemic — accountable?

"I'm vocal because I have not seen the mainstream media ask these questions or demand accountability of their leaders. [Cuomo] really has been ruling with an iron fist, and every time he does get asked a question, he blames everybody else except the person that signed that order," Janice said.

"In my mind, he's profiting off the over 30 thousand New Yorkers, including my in-laws, that died by publishing a book on 'leadership' of New York," she added. "His order has helped kill thousands of relatives of New York state. And this is not political, Glenn. This is not about Republican or Democrat. My in-laws were registered Democrats. This is not about politics. This is about accountability for something that went wrong, and it's because of your [Cuomo's] leadership that we're put into this situation."

As America grows divided and afraid to disagree with the Democrats' woke plan for America, Megyn Kelly is ready to fight back for the truth. For nearly two decades, she navigated the volatile and broken world of the media. But as America leans on independent voices more than ever, she's breaking new ground with "The Megyn Kelly Show."

She joined the latest Glenn Beck Podcast to break down what's coming next after the election: Black Lives Matter is mainstream, leftists are making lists of Trump supporters, and the Hunter Biden scandal is on the back burner.

Megyn and Glenn reminisce about their cable news days (including her infamous run-in with then-presidential candidate Donald Trump) and to look into the chaotic and shady world of journalism and the growing entitlement it's bred. For example, many conservatives have been shocked by how Fox News handled the election.

Megyn defended Fox News, saying she believes Fox News' mission "is a good one," but also didn't hold back on hosts like Neil Cavuto, who cut off a White House briefing to fact check it — something she never would have done, even while covering President Obama.

Megyn also shared this insightful takeaway from her time at NBC: "Jane Fonda was an ass."
