Alter Bridge at The Tabernacle in Atlanta

The Tabernacle in Atlanta was once again home to a sold-out crowd as the hard rock band Alter Bridge delivered a powerful and enthusiastic performance. Hailing from Detroit, the quartet formed a decade ago when guitarist Mark Tremonti and drummer Scott Phillips reunited with bassist Brian Marshall from their former band. Fans of Myles Kennedy’s vocals, they asked him to join their band as the lead singer, and Alter Bridge was born. Over the years, the future of the band...

Crosby, Stills and Nash In Concert at The Fox Theatre in Atlanta

Nearly 45 years ago, I heard "Suite: Judy Blue Eyes" for the first time when David Crosby, Stephen Stills and Graham Nash, along with Neil Young, took to the stage at Woodstock and opened with the song after telling the crowd "This is only the second time we've performed in front of people. We're scared shitless!" Okay, so I was with my father who helped coordinate the security at Woodstock and I was only nine years old, but it's a memory that sticks with me to this...

The Moody Blues In Concert at The Fox Theatre in Atlanta

There really is only one word to describe British rock band The Moody Blues - legendary. For nearly fifty years (as of May 4), their music has been heard around the world with over 70 million albums sold and 14 gold and platinum discs awarded. So, what is it that has kept this band which was part of the "British Invasion" of the 1960's so relevant and viable yet today, selling out venues around the world? The music, of course. The Moody Blues could be called...

Bob Weir and RatDog at The Tabernacle in Atlanta

Grateful Dead alumni Bob Weir, along with his band RatDog, performed for a sold-out crowd at The Tabernacle in Atlanta, GA. Much like a Grateful Dead concert, the crowd was made up of fans who follow Weir and his band from town to town, enjoying songs from RatDog as well as legendary Grateful Dead tunes like "Truckin'", "Jack Straw" and "Touch of Grey".

Imagine Dragons, Naked & Famous and Nico Vega in Atlanta

I've said it before and I'll say it again: I'm not a big fan of many of the newer bands that are onstage these days. Perhaps I'm stuck in the '70's and '80's when music had meaning and there were fewer genres than there were bands. (Okay, that is complaint about what appears to be the new music model of getting labeled something like "alt-indie-post-punk-rock-and-roll jazz band", or some such nonsense.) Nevertheless, I'm always pleasantly surprised when I get...

The History of the Eagles Landed In Atlanta

In 1971, two musicians who were backing up Linda Ronstadt on tour decided they should form a band of their own. Don Henley and Glenn Frey told Linda their plans. In turn, she introduced them to Bernie Leadon. Then, with the addition of Randy Meisner, The Eagles were born and became one of the most successful bands of the 1970's, as well as one of the best-selling bands of all time. Core members of The Eagles include Henley, Frey and Leadon, along with...

Flogging Molly with The Drowning Men and The Attack in Atlanta

With head-banging frenzy that would seem better suited for Lamb of God or MegaDeth, fans crowd surfed and slammed each other in mosh pits for L.A.-based Celtic punk band Flogging Molly. The band made a stop on their tour in Atlanta at The Tabernacle for a sold-out audience. Recently needing reinforcement in the structure after a partial floor collapse in the main hall, The Tabernacle once again shook with the pounding of fans' feet as the Irish-themed music rocked the walls.
Krisitian Bush

Kristian Bush with Larkin Poe at Buckhead Theatre in Atlanta

Sometimes, being single is a good thing. It gives you time and space to discover who you want to be without the influence of anyone else changing your path. Case in point: Kristian Bush, one-half of the hit country duo Sugarland. Bush is hitting the road on his "Put Your Soul In It" solo tour while Sugarland takes a hiatus. Bush, an accomplished songwriter and performer, began his tour in Atlanta at the historic Buckhead Theatre where he performed for a packed house...
2014 Inductees Musician Hall of Fame

Musicians Hall of Fame Inducts Legends

Tuesday night was another of those "only in Nashville" nights, as some of music's most famous names, and behind-the-scenes players of instruments, took to the stage of the Municipal Auditorium to perform and pay homage to friends and heroes alike for the Musicians Hall of Fame and Museum's annual induction ceremony. Chip Esten, who portrays Deacon Claybourne on the ABC prime-time soap Nashville, was the emcee for the evening, which included...

Sea Wolf Performs at Nashville’s Mercy Lounge

The stage was empty; a microphone was just standing there. It was imperative that the night’s show was going to compose of solo acts. Liza Anne, and Kiernan McMullan, who are Nashville’s local musicians, opened the stage for Alex Brown Church, aka Sea Wolf. The Mercy Lounge filled up quickly with Sea Wolf fans anticipating for him to perform. Liza Anne, who went on the stage first, performed a short set, but a sweet set. Her voice is reminiscent as Pricilla Ahn...

Jeff Dunham's Disorderly Conduct Tour in Atlanta

At the age of eight, Jeff Dunham received his first ventriloquist dummy from his parents for Christmas. By age thirteen, he was being audited by the IRS for making too much money performing for schools and local groups. It's no wonder then with ambition and drive like that, he's now become Pollstar's top income earning comedian for three years running. Jeff Dunham is truly living the American Dream with multiple personalities.

P!nk’s “The Truth About Love” Tour

Remember Monty Hall and Let’s Make A Deal? The contestant had to choose between door number one or door number two, and didn’t know what they’d find behind either one. Saturday night’s P!nk concert in Atlanta was like being that contestant: Door number one opened to a musical concert, while door number two led to a performance of Cirque du Soliel. With all the acrobatics and outstanding dance routines that were part of the show, I think I managed to get the best of both doors.
Brian Setzer

Brian Setzer with Firebird in Concert in Atlanta

Rockabilly has its roots dating to the early 1950's, with Carl Perkins and Elvis Presley considered as the "founding fathers" of the musical genre. Wikipedia defines Rockabilly as "a blend of country & western and rhythm & blues [that] pointed the way to classic rock 'n' roll." Personally, I think there are two words that can best describe Rockabilly: Brian Setzer. In the early 1980's, Setzer formed the Stray Cats and immediately caught the attention of the music world with...
