Suicidal Tendencies on The Slam City Tour 2013 at Amo’s South End, Charlotte, NC April 26th, 2013

Now for the actual music: despite the fact that I am a huge Rocky George fan and he’s now playing with Fishbone, and despite my misgivings from my prior time of seeing ST, I’m here to tell you, they were tight as a mofo!!! And if I’m not mistaken it wasn’t until about the third song that Mike spoke to the crowd at any great length, but most of his rants were kept short.The setlist was the highlight of the night for me. They played classic stuff,more recent songs, as well as a few from their new album. All era’s blended so well. The band he has assembled right now is insanely talented

Death Angel/Threat Signal/Bonded By Blood/Wretched/Potential Threat/SkinKage: The Ultra Violence Tour 2012 Concert Review

They went straight into The Ultra Violence album. These songs bring back so many great memories from back in the day for me. This was one of my favorite tapes when I was in high school, and remains one of my favorites to this day. We had already decided we would see this show, but when we saw they were playing this album all the way through it clinched it for us

Steve Vai: The Story of Light Tour Concert Review

So after two and a half hours of some of the most breath taking guitar pyrotechnics I’ve likely ever seen, he humbly thanks the audience for coming out and hoped they enjoyed it and that was the end of that. I don’t know that I would necessarily say this was the greatest concert I’ve ever been to, but it was pretty damn incredible.

Def Leppard, Poison, Lita Ford: Rock of Ages Tour Concert Review

Ending the night was Def Leppard. I had warned Kim and AJ prior that the last time I saw them they put on a great show, but Joe’s voice just wasn’t hitting it. I was hoping that since they took a week or so break that it would be enough to refresh his vocals. Well guess what? Something happened because he sounded fantastic.
