World's Top New Year's Eve Concert List !!

Yo... I've assembled a darn near definitive list of New Year's Eve Concerts going on around the globe...

It took many hours of detailed web searches & list scanning to create a quasi-comprehensive guide to whose doing what on New Year's eve in various musical genres across the globe...

So here's my latest updated selections featuring some sorta alphabetically organized events going on in live music as we roll the calendar over into 2006 ... indeed, I am surprised to announce it, but this is about the most complete list of NYE's concerts available anywhere, at least that that I know of...

I combed many multiple news sources, foreign & domestic databases, stray spam emails, dead links ad nauseum , all just to get this inane info to ya.

...and even with my selectivity meter in full effect, i declare that neither Pollstar, Ticketmaster, Google, MySpace or any of yer fave mags or papers is gonna have close to any of this info all in one place to scan with yer peepers...

Maybe ya can't get in to any of 'em, but at least ya know what's going on and where yer faves are at...
