As a lover of many bands, singers, and music genres, I listen to a rather eclectic mix. My music collection contains everything from reggae, to rock 'n' roll, to metal, to easy listening.
Let me start by saying, there is no other music venue in the world like the Royal Albert Hall. It's 100 plus year history is so present in every inch of its proximity. All and any genre of music can fill the auditorium and sound incredible, but there is just something about Country music at the RAH that makes it go right through you. In my opinion, the only other style that can match the sound there is classical. On Friday night, Maren Morris played to a crowd of over 5,000 fans, of which I think you would struggle to find someone who didn't enjoy it.
As we start to lose our Rock and Roll heroes, last night at the PNC Arts Center, we said good bye to a true rock legend. Robert Clark Seger, from the Detroit, Michigan area has been around Rock and Roll since the early 60s. I personally have never seen the PNC Arts Center so crowded for any concert (I have been going their since 1980).
In an earlier article, I put Take That as one of the music acts that I would love to see live. This month I managed to cross one of them off my list. Take That started out in the early 90s as one of the biggest boybands. My aunt, who I lived with at the time, has a big collection of memorabilia belonging to acts of the 90s. There was no escape from hits like "Could It Be Magic" and "Back For Good." Fortunately for me, I was also a fan of the band.
Let me start by saying, Milano was never on my bucket list, but seeing George Ezra was. So when his European tour dates fell around my birthday, I figured why not make a weekend out of it?
The most emotional performance of the night came when soloist James Williams performed the soulful "Sweet Communion." The passion and conviction that Williams had in his performance was worth more than the price of admission.
Rockaway Bitch, the all-female Ramones tribute band, will perform a selection of the Ramones classic hits at Garcia’s Capitol Theatre, in Port Chester this Saturday, April 13. This marks their debut appearance at the rock palace’s music venue and bar, named after the late Grateful Dead lead vocalist and rock legend, Jerry Garcia. The concert will also feature The Clash cover band, Straight To Hell—who will play The Clash’s greatest hits. There’s something for everyone! The show is for the 40th Anniversary of the Clash album, London Calling. The band Straight to Hell will take the stage after Rockaway Bitch. The band line-up includes Patti Rothberg as Patti Ramone (lead vocals), Jennifer Eden asJenny Ramone, (guitar) Rockelle Cakes asCakey Ramone, (bass) and Hitomi Nakamura as Tomi Ramone, (drums).
Last night, Jackson Browne's small, yet sold-out tour made its way from Chattanooga to Cobb Energy Arena, just outside Atlanta for his intimate acoustic show.
I go to a lot of shows. A. Lot. In the past year I saw Radiohead twice, Nine Inch Nails at Radio City, Queens of the Stone Age in Atlanta for the Shaky Knees festival, and Portugal. The Man at Forest Hills to name only a select few. To list them all would require far too much effort than I have brain cells left for.
The Aces' first ever headlining US tour came to a close Saturday night in Salt Lake City, Utah and I had the fortunate opportunity of attending Wednesday night’s show in Kansas City, Missouri.
Concerts can be extremely exciting and fun, you get to see your favourite artists and bands live, listen to the songs you love and care about in a place with people who share the same love, but with every concert comes those people with extremely poor manners and self-entitlement that shakes you to the core. Here are some manners you need to adopt so you don't get glared at by fellow concert-goers.
The Alliance of Alien Artists is hosting a benefit and fundraiser to support their newly-established foundation. The show is a celebration of Broadway and musical theatre globally taking place at the Green Room 42 on March 24 at 7 PM entitled, Broadway Around the World. The performance will take audiences around the world in one night with show tunes sung in the singers’ native languages. It’s a celebration of culture and diversity and a trip around the world in 80 minutes—not days.
