If you like your music loud, hard hitting, bombastic with some smoke and flashpots mixed in, then Sunday evening would have been the show to see. That’s when Disturbed and Breaking Benjamin rolled into the Darien Lake PAC and delivered a strong set to a very decent sized crowd. Continue reading

The old saying goes “two out of three ain’t bad”. The Rock Hall Three For All tour rolled into Darien Lake Wednesday evening featuring Heart, Joan Jett and Cheap Trick. While all three have been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame over the past few years, after seeing the show, this left for debate as to which band should go on and in which order. It was a very decent sized crowd for a mid week show out at the PAC. Continue reading

It had been over a decade since Olivia Newton-John last played the Buffalo/Niagara region.

She broke the night into segments playing an 80s segment, a country set that features her hits of the 70s, an environmental segment and of course a section of the show dedicated to Grease.
