There is something about Artpark on Tuesday. With the lone exception (so far) of the ZZ Top concert, the weather always seems to clear up in time for the show. The double bill of two classic rock stalwarts, George Thorogood & The Destroyers along with 38 Special gave the Artpark faithful a show they will remember for a long time to come. Thorogood called Artpark “the world’s greatest secret” saying it was a joy to play here again. It had been six years since he last played here, well before all the recent upgrades to the unique venue. Thorogood was in such a great mood as he treated the fans to a gem of a show, the best Thorogood show this reviewer has ever seen. Continue reading

There is nothing like a crisp cool evening under the stars…with stars. Stars as in Sir Rod Stewart and Cyndi Lauper who brought their 2017 summer tour to the Constellation Brands-Marvin Sands Performing Arts Center Saturday evening. What an affair it was. The near capacity crowd were treated to a timeless performance from the ageless wonder himself Rod Stewart. The 72-year old, Stewart gave a 100-minute performance that easily ranks as one of the best I’ve seen this summer. Continue reading

Yngwie J. Malmsteen Ruffling Feathers Again

Commentary
Yngwie J. Malmsteen

Has he considered working with singers like Jeff Scott Soto, Joe Lynn Turner and Tim “Ripper” Owens again on an album or a tour: Continue reading

Rage and Rapture Tour

When the announcement came out that the Rage and Rapture tour would touch down at Artpark many fans rejoiced. After all Blondie hadn’t played the area all that much over the last ten years and it had been even longer since Garbage last played near the Buffalo area. The tour featuring two of the most prominent female singers in history, in Deborah Harry and Shirley Manson was an ideal match. Neither band disappointed as the double-bill gave the crowd more than their money’s worth and left them craving more. Continue reading
