Moving On Tour 2019

The Who’s Moving On tour touched down at KeyBank Center in Buffalo Thursday night. Being just the 2nd night of the band’s tour made it extra special as the band delivered two additional songs than their opening night set two days ago. Not sure if it had anything to do with the fact they had not played here since a 1997 outing in Darien Center. Guitarist Pete Townshend noted how long it had been when he greeted the near capacity crowd. Townshend and vocalist Roger Daltrey are the last surviving members of the group that was part of the British Invasion that took place in the mid-1960s. Continue reading

KeyBank Center

The Who have had many notable shows when playing Buffalo including two huge shows out at then called Rich Stadium. They also played their first area show at the long forgotten Melody Fair during the venue’s infant years. This upcoming show may be notable as it may very well be the bands final show in Buffalo. The band has cut down on touring over recent years and with Roger Daltry and Pete Townsend in or near their mid 70’s the chances they will play here again dwindle. To get you ready for the show we are running our top 25 songs as selected by our writers. Enjoy! Continue reading

Cher Packs Em To The Rafters One More Time

Concert Review
Cher
Here We Go Again Tour
KeyBank Center
Buffalo, NY
Friday April 26, 2019
Review/Photos: Joseph Suto

It’s all in a name. There are many artist’s known by simply one name. Long before such names as JoJo, Adele, Kesha and Madonna there was Cher. Born Cherilyn Sarkisian she has taken the music and acting world by storm. Gaining Popularity with her then husband Sonny Bono was where it all began in 1965 as they skyrocketed to #1 with their very first single “I Got You Babe”. From there a solo career, an acting career, numerous awards and recognitions. Friday night Cher played before a packed KeyBank Center for what she claims really is the last time although the current tour name Here We Go Again Tour may say otherwise. Continue reading

Interview with Yardbirds Jim McCarty

In Conversation With…
Jim McCarty
Drummer for Yardbirds
Box of Frogs
By: Joseph Suto

The Yardbirds were one of the pioneers for playing the type of music they played. With such diversity that featured not only blues but also included jazz, folk, rock, pop, and raga to name a few, they were an inspiration to many bands who are still relevant today. During the 1960s the band at various stages featured such guitars greats as Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck and James Patrick Page. Solidifying the foundation of the band were drummer Jim McCarty, bassist Paul Samwell-Smith, multi-instramentalist Chris Dreja and singer Keith Relf. Continue reading

Buffalo Shows Disturbed And Three Days Grace That Rock Is Still Alive

Concert Review
Disturbed
Three Days Grace
KeyBank Center
Buffalo, NY
Saturday March 2, 2019
Review/Photos: Joseph Suto

Over 10,000 rock and rollers turned up for the Disturbed show at KeyBank Center this past Saturday. While it may have helped having Three Days Grace on the bill as well as being on a Saturday night, Buffalo was sorely in need of a good kick-ass show and they got it from both bands. Basically Disturbed took a page out of Motley Crue’s book by playing the east coast in the dead of winter with no other competition on the road and they were rewarded. One look at Disturbed’s stage set up and you knew that KeyBank Center was the place to be Saturday night. Continue reading
