Pearl Jam, Live at Barclays Center, Brooklyn

October 23rd, 2013
Comments Off

Pearl Jam played an epic two-night run in Brooklyn’s Barclays Center this weekend. The band always brings its best to New York and these two stops on their current Lightning Bolt tour were no different. Friday night saw a two and a half hour show including several new songs which fell right in line with the many classics, and a few rarities, including Mother Love Bone’s “Chloe Dancer” and “Crown of Thorns,” an impromptu cover of Van Halen’s “Eruption” by guitarist Mike McCready and Pearl Jam’s own rarely played “Sleight of Hand.” For Saturday, the band ran a full three hours, only repeating ten of the 32 songs from Friday, crafting an entirely new set.

Comments Off

Labor Day weekend in Philadelphia. For decades, the tradition in this part of the country for saying goodbye to summer is to go down the shore one last time.

His massive Rose Bowl gig with Jay Z was just last week, but Justin Timberlake will return to the stage in Los Angeles on Tuesday, November 26th for a performance at Staples Center.

We don’t have to tell you that this will be a really hot ticket in L.A., so be sure to snatch up your tickets once they go on sale this Monday, August 5th at 10:00 a.m. via AXS. They’ll cost $49.50-$175.00 depending on your preferred ticket level.

JT is still touring in support of his new album, The 20/20 Experience, and has plans to release another one in the fall – so chances are he’ll dip into some new material for the Staples Center gig.

Even the Greats Don’t Always Hit Home Runs

Rapper. Record producer. Entrepreneur. Husband. Father. Those are just a few hats that Jay-Z wears when he’s not sporting a Yankee’s cap. Over the last 18 years, Mr. Carter has taken the rap game by storm. His debut album Reasonable Doubt was just evidence that this was an artist that was bound for greatness. Twelve albums later on his latest release Magna Carta Holy Grail Jay-Z is back to show that although he’s now in his early 40s it’s still business as usual. Forever the innovator, this latest opus was available for download 3 days prior to it’s official release. Although many users ran into technical difficulties receiving the album, the most disturbing part was the permissions the app wanted in the first place. They say “there is no such thing as bad publicity” so, knowing Jay-Z, he’ll surely find a good way to spin it.
