FOREIGNER - The 40th Anniversary Tour w/Cheap Trick - Jason Bonham's Led Zeppelin Experience           Back to the BB&T Pavilion as Foreigner comes into town on the second stop of their 40th Anniversary Tour along with special guests Cheap Trick and Jason Bonham's Led Zeppelin Experience.           Jason Bonham opened the show playing an eight-song set of Led Zeppelin covers such as “Immigrant Song,” “Over the Hills and Far Away,” “Ramble On” and more as a heartfelt tribute from Jason to his father, Led Zeppelin's original drummer John Bonham.           After a short break, Cheap Trick took to the stage with a huge checkerboard backdrop which has been a staple of the band since day one. They opened with “Hello There,” “Big Eyes” and “Lookout” before stopping to address the crowd ... guitarist Rick Nielsen saying it’s good to be b...

2017 WMMR-B-Q Concert w/ Godsmack, Bush, Live, Pretty Reckless, The Struts, Zakk Sabbath and more BB&T Center, Camden, NJ  •  Saturday, May 20         It was back to the BB&T Pavilion to kick off my 2017 concert season with the always fun WMMR-B-Q show, and for the first time in three years it was not raining so there were quite a lot of tailgaters in the parking lots already partying, grilling and playing corn-hole and cranking the music of one of their favorite bands that would be playing through the day.           As I got inside it was time for the first band, Dinosaur Pile Up, a three-piece band from England who took the stage at 1:55 pm. Lead singer and guitarist Matt Bigland said, “we are from England and it’s a lot better being here!” I've never heard of the band but their 30-minute six-song set was pretty rockin' and I would like to see them again playing a headline set.           Next up, Rival Sons, another band I ha...

STYX - "2016 OC Bikefest" Ocean City Inlet Parking Lot, Ocean City, Md. Friday, September 16, 2016           As Styx rolled into town with their 2016 Tour, and as all the bikers were gassing up their hogs for the long weekend of Rock-N-Roll at the inlet and pretty much everywhere else in town, I was putting air in my bicycle tires, (yes, bicycle and air) so I could pedal my way down the boardwalk to the concert. Damn, it’s nice to have some great entertainment right here in our town and especially the inlet and looking out at the amazing Atlantic ocean on a Harvest Moon weekend. I have been to other Bikefests here over the years but this was the most people I have ever seen at any. The entertainment tent was packed, they had video screens hanging outside the tent so the people in the lot could see from all over and the picnic table area on the beach was packed. I'm sure the Styx headlining concert was a huge draw. The only bad thing was that for all those thousand...
