When it was announced way back in February that Styx, Foreigner and Don Felder were going to team up for a huge summer tour it was quite staggering to see the amassed sales total of their music catalogs. Styx and Foreigner certainly are no strangers to each other as they have toured in the past, but by adding an amazing talent like Don Felder, the former Eagle to the bill was the icing on the cake.

Despite some heavy downpours throughout the day, classic rock band Boston managed to get the show in. The weather cleared up just in time for the band to complete their soundcheck.

John Mellencamp hadn’t played in the area since he last visited the Darien Lake PAC back in 2005 with John Fogerty on a joint tour. When it was announced that he was coming to the Seneca Niagara Casino as part of Summer Rush 2014, it took me back to my youth and gave me that long lost feeling of being a kid on Christmas Day.

By: Robert Winans

 

Chad Gray and Vinnie Paul will both be out touring with Hellyeah starting in September with Volbeat and Five Finger Death Punch on a North American tour, and they are bringing some new material to work with off of their new album “Blood For Blood”. Hellyeah is commonly known for bringing a southern rock fused with a metal feel to their music, but this time around we went much heavier with a couple of ballad-esque gems hidden in between.
