Live Nation

On June 27th, Garth Brooks is beaming one of his concerts to over 300 drive-in theaters all over the US.

While that is cool, wouldn’t it be even cooler if it was a live and in-person show? Well, that is what Live Nation is doing next month with nine shows between July 10th-12th. Brad Paisley will be playing all three cities, Nashville, Tennessee, Maryland Heights, Missouri, and Noblesville, Indiana. While the other nights in those cities will be shared by Nelly and El Monstero in St. Louis, Jon Pardi and Darius Rucker in Nashville, and Jon Pardi and Yacht Rock Revue in Indianopollis.

How are they going to do that during the coronavirus pandemic? Your seats are your car. For as low as $125 per automobile, you can bring three people with you to enjoy the show. Each vehicle is given three spaces that are 9′ wide. The first for the car, the second for tailgating, and a third to keep a distance from the next concert-goer. While you are not required to wear a mask when you are in your designated area, you will have to wear one when you go to the bathroom. Each restroom will have hand sanitizer, a sink, and someone cleaning areas that see high traffic.

You are able to bring your own food and alcohol. However, they will be selling hot food and non-alcoholic drinks just in case.

Paisley told the AP, “The idea that we’re outdoors is a great thing,” adding, “I just think it’s a fun way to watch a concert anyway. It’d be fun if there wasn’t a virus.”

Hopefully, it is success because I would totally go to a concert like this. Plus, it is cheaper than most shows. Would you go to a gig like this?

If you would, then you can get tickets this Friday on Live Nation.


The Go-Go’s no longer got the beat
March 22nd, 2016 under Concerts/Tours. [ Comments: 7 ]

After almost 40 years together, The Go-Go’s are planning to say bye bye this summer. The all girl group will play 18 cities in The US this August, and then they will go on a permanent Vacation.
The band released this statement about their farewell tour, “We feel so lucky and so grateful to have had the incredible support of our fans for so long. We can’t wait to get out on the road and give the people what they want: some loud, fast music and a great party!”
While I am not head over heels about this news, I will be a cool jerk and wish them the best. I just want to know if I can turn to you for a hug.


Brandy plays to an unpacked crowd!
August 22nd, 2013 under Brandy and Ray J, Concerts/Tours. [ Comments: none ]

Brandy played a concert at FNB stadium in Soweto after a game on Sunday, only problem is that no one seemed to know about it. In fact according to The Guardian only 40 people stayed to hear her sing. That number sounds even worse when you consider that arena can hold 90,000 at capacity. To make matters worse Brandy was able to see how many people were actually in the audience because someone left the lights on. Once she realized that that was all there was going to be, she walked out after singing 2 songs.
If that doesn’t bruise someone’s ego, I don’t know what does.


Amanda Seyfried totally creeps me out
December 18th, 2012 under Concerts/Tours. [ Comments: none ]

When you look at Amanda Seyfried, she looks all doe-eyed and innocent, but then when you hear what her hobby is your impression of her will change. Yesterday she was on Conan O’Brien’s TBS show and he asked her about being into Taxidermy. She then explained to him why she has all of these dead stuffed animals in her house and I was totally weirded out. Then she shared a picture of her with her dead friends reading a book and I am beyond creeped out. If only her sh!tty Red Riding Hood picture was as scary as her real life, it might’ve done a whole lot better at the box office. Seriously that movie was so bad, I couldn’t even get through 10 minutes of that dreck.


A Little Bird hinted that Annie Lennox’s Sweet Dreams of touring are over?
April 18th, 2011 under Annie Lennox, Concerts/Tours. [ Comments: none ]

Annie Lennox posted a blog on her site that makes it seem like she will no longer be touring. The Walking on Broken Glass singer is breaking a lot of hearts by posting this:

I doubt that I’ll ever tour again because quite honestly…it just wears me out mentally and physically, and my back and left foot are rubbish.
In any case, I think I spent enough time waiting in cars, hotel rooms and dressing rooms for Godot to actually make a personal appearance.
In the future performers will tour by hologram on a regular basis…undoubtedly.
Meanwhile… Today I’m featuring an artist who has been “disappeared”..Ai Weiwei…love Annie

For some reason I doubt she will stop touring, she will just take a break from it. In a few years she will crave that feeling that only performing live gives her and she will back on the road just like Cher, Barbra Streisand and The Cure said and did before her.
