LYNYRD SKYNYRD - BB&T Pavilion • Camden, New Jersey
Written By: Gary Crouthamel
LYNYRD SKYNYRD - BB&T Pavilion • Camden, New Jersey Saturday, August 19, 2017           After a recorded version of AC/DC's "Thunderstruck" playing over the house P.A. system with the near sellout crowd all in their seats and ready for the show, a voice comes over the P.A. system and says, "Ladies and Gentlemen, please welcome Lynyrd Skynyrd!”  The band hit the stage, with the video screen behind the band sporting the logo  "Lynyrd Skynyrd Tour 2017," and took fans on a trip down memory lane with a night of rock ‘n roll classics that made the band what they are today. They opened with "Workin' for MCA", "What's Your Name" and "Saturday Night Special" before lead singer Johnny Van Zant  would stop and tell the crowd, "Skynyrd's in the house!" Then after the next song, "I Know a Little", front man Van Zant who always likes to get the crowd into the show asks, "so for how many of you out there is...

"United We Rock Tour 2017" - Styx, REO Speedwagon and Don Felder

"United We Rock Tour 2017" - Styx, REO Speedwagon and Don Felder Borgata Event Center, Atlantic City, NJ Saturday, August 12, 2017           Back to the Borgata, my favorite place to shoot in Atlantic City, N.J., and what better way to celebrate my birthday weekend than a trip up there for the "United We Rock Tour 2017" with Styx, REO Speedwagon and Don Felder. I have covered these bands before but not all together on one bill. This is the show of the summer and it was a hit from start to finish.         Right at 7 o'clock with a huge backdrop behind the stage resembling the "Hotel California" album cover and the name Don Felder on it, he and his band hit the stage and opened with "Already Gone", and "One of These Nights". They next played the only non-Eagles song of the night, "Heavy Metal" (Takin' a Ride), that Don wrote himself for the 1981 cult film of the same name. He took care of most all the vocals of the night but with ...

AN EVENING WITH CHICAGO The Freeman Stage at Bayside

AN EVENING WITH CHICAGO The Freeman Stage at Bayside Selbyville, Delaware Tuesday, August 1, 2017           Another gorgeous and cloudless night for a concert at The Freeman Stage. As I was walking up to the entrance passing the stage, I noticed three semi trailers (for their equipment) and four tour buses (for the band and roadies). I have never noticed this at any other concert I have been to up there so I was just thinking, this should be good. I was told by management that this was the most people the Freeman Stage had ever had in their 10-year history. The chairs were lined up all the way to the back of the lawn at the concession stand, a set-up I had never seen before. As I looked through and around the crowd, I was just wondering if Gull Creek in Berlin issued free one-day road trip passes. Think about it a minute people. If no one has been to the Freeman Stage this year, let me tell you that they have built a brand new massive stage to accommodate bigger bands now. Without the new stage, ...
