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

Kowalczyk And Company Put On Inspiring Performance At Fallsview

Concert Review
Live
The Avalon Theatre
Fallsview Casino Resort
Niagara Falls, Onatario

When vocalist Ed Kowalczyk stated to the sold out Fallsview Casino crowd that this year marks Throwing Coppers 25th anniversary it seemed like he almost couldn’t believe it as much as I. It is so hard to fathom that the album that put the band on the map and got the whole ball rolling is that old. The album has a unique distinction for climbing to #1 after it first hit the album charts (52 weeks) thus making it the third longest gap to do so in the Billboard Album Chart history.

For our first show of the new year it was one for the books. The band from Rockford, Illinois Cheap Trick took over the Fallsview Casino Friday night. Take it over they did with as solid of an 80-minute set as you will find from a band from their era. Not only did Cheap Trick dazzle, they did so with the best sounding show I’ve ever heard the band play. Continue reading
