All the talk around Buffalo and the surrounding area the past few days has been about the Paul McCartney concert announcement. We hopped the border to see that other Paul, Paul Rodgers for a solo show at the Fallsview Casino on Friday. I must say this-it was easily one of the top 3 shows I’ve seen this year. His voice sounded better than I’ve ever heard before. The seemingly ageless Rodgers has taken good care of himself over the years. Continue reading

Overcast skies above and a chill in the air was not going to stop the Van Halen train from rolling into the Darien Lake PAC, Tuesday evening. The band gave us one of their best performances in a long time. Most were wondering if the show would even happen at all due to the cancellation of their show just prior due to Roth coming down with a case of the flu. Continue reading

For some strange reason it seems to rain in the Buffalo/Niagara Falls area every Tuesday. For some strange reason Artpark seems to be spared. Despite lingering dark clouds and a cool night, the rain held off and The Doobie Brothers may well have delivered the best concert the outdoor amphitheater has seen this summer. Continue reading

Review: Joseph Suto
✰✰✰✰

 

It has been an interesting tale to say the least for the Scorpions. The band was slated to call it a day after their last album Sting In The Tail. The plan called for the band to tour from 2010-2012 and then quietly fade into the sunset. As time grew the band changed their stance and said they would still continue to record. Well now that more time has passed the band decided what the heck and has decided to tour behind their newest effort Return To Forever. Continue reading
