Judas Priest took to the MVP Arena stage Saturday night for their second show on this fall leg of their latest tour. This time around they are still celebrating 50 years of the mighty Judas Priest which started . It almost seemed like a flashback to 2005 when Priest also toured with Queensrÿche on another memorable tour. I like the fact that Judas Priest brings bands who truly deserve the slot and that it also gives the fans a well balanced show. Continue reading

Petrucci & Company Deliver A Night To Remember

Concert Review
John Petrucci

Town Ballroom
Buffalo, NY

Concert Review & Photos: Joseph Suto

John Petrucci hit the Town Ballroom Sunday evening for what was billed as his first ever solo tour. Joining him for the occasion were longtime “don’t leave home without him” collaborator and bassist Dave LaRue and longtime friend Mile Portnoy on drums. Portnoy, for those who may be out of the loop met Petrucci when they were 18 years old and formed some band named Dream Theater. This tour marked the first time the two of them played live together since 2010. Incidentally, to date that was the last time Dream Theater played Buffalo and it also took place at the Town Ballroom as well. Continue reading
