Upcoming Tours 2013

The Neighborhood Bullys Beating Up The East Coast This October

By Iman Lababedi | September 6, 2013

“The quartet rocked, and rhythm-&-blues-ed the place with loud guitars, while injecting some punk riffs as well as a few jokes here and there.”

Pearl Jam To Play Barclay Center This October 2013

By Iman Lababedi | July 9, 2013

Please have no doubt that whatever it takes I plan to catch them this October when they play Barclay Center.

The Wow Wow Has Left Bow Wow Wow: No Annabella?

By Helen Bach | June 22, 2013

How about we just end it here. Its not Bow Wow Wow at all its Leigh Gorman and the ‘hope to make a buck off the 80s’” band. Yuck

The Rolling Stones Have A Hard Time To Sell Their Over-Priced Tickets And Release Low-Priced Seats At The Last Minute!

By Alyson Camus | May 7, 2013

It is their biggest tour for six years, Los Angeles was the opening night, Mick Taylor and guests were even scheduled to perform, however hundreds of seats were still available the day of the show, and the NY daily news reports that StubHub had more than 500 tickets available 24 hours before the show

"Yahoo! On The Road” , Do We Need Another Corporate Tour?

By Helen Bach | May 2, 2013

Text uploads and downloading apps to see The Lumineers? I think Yahoo had a good idea but made it slightly too invasive. I just want a ticket and a chair.

Manic Street Preachers To Tour With Rugby Team In Australia

By Iman Lababedi | May 2, 2013

“As massive rugby fans the chance to visit one of our favourite countries – play some gigs and watch the British and Irish Lions play Australia is an amazing once in a lifetime opportunity”

Bob Dylan's American? Substituing Van Morrison For Jeff Tweedy On Tour

By Iman Lababedi | April 26, 2013

I think the move to keyboards killed him, just killed him. If you listen to his 1990s live boots, like the awesome “Sensei” and go to his shows today, the difference is bizarre indeed. W’appen?

Michael Buble And Robbie Williams To Tour Together

By Iman Lababedi | March 29, 2013

On the same stage, these guys will play very well off each other. Buble is sincere, Robbie plays sincerity like a roulette wheel. And they both seem to walk a line between old and new, hip and straight laced. I guess I mean they crossover.

Hey, Maybe Weezy Really Does Hate NYC

By Iman Lababedi | March 28, 2013

Lil Wayne put together a huge tour and yet again ignored the media center of the Universe. What’s that about? Incidentally, the rule of thumb is you announce five borough dates late because people hold out for them. But there aren’t enough off dates, he is giving us the miss

Marla Mase On Tour Of Europe

By Iman Lababedi | March 27, 2013

Every time we check in on True Groove Record Label they are doing something else, whether is is Doncker opening for Ethiopian pop stars or trips to China or Mase’s extended version of her album Speak or anthem single “Piece Of Peace”, they are relentless in their pursuit of musical excellence.

John Mayer and Lil Wayne To Tour (er, Not Together)

By Mahalia Dark | March 23, 2013

I saw Mayer play with Hova a coupla years ago and he was the best thing about the gig and Weez… he has gotta come up with the goods. But I am not a big fan of either performer. Dunno why. Weezy is too weird and mayer is too sleazy and both are absolutely terrible when it comes to ballads.

Depeche Mode To Barclay Center – September 6th, 2013, A Friday No Less

By Iman Lababedi | March 12, 2013

They are a hugely influential band whose Songs Of Faith and Devotion was the OK Computer of a different era and whenever “Mojo” has a poll and regardless of what the poll might be about, there is Depeche Mode at #43.

FIDLAR's New Out-Of-This-Earth Video For 'Max Can't Surf'

By Alyson Camus | March 11, 2013

The video, for ‘Max Can’t Surf’, is a trip, ‘the Zuk Trip’ on some hi-tech skateboards, surfing the ecstasy pill all over the world and beyond as if they were reacting Back-to-the-Future on acid.

Ted Nugent Announces His Black Power 2013 Tour

By Alyson Camus | February 26, 2013

These days, Nugent probably tours the county-fair circuit attended by camouflage-attired-over-the-hill fat guys carrying guns at concerts and driving pick-up trucks with deer trophies in the trunk. His audience totally embodies the racist-redneck cliché.

Fall Out Boy, Yeah rocknyc Will Be There

By Helen Bach | February 7, 2013

The chances of you getting tickets by clicking on the Live Nation site on Friday at 10am are pretty slim- sorry kids it will sell out and it will happen fast and well aren’t you supposed to be in school?

Beyonce To Barclay Center August 3rd, 2013

By Iman Lababedi | February 6, 2013

Beyonce is becoming the Queen Bee of Bad Vibes. There is something kinda nasty about the first couple of pop, condescending, a little on the Marie Antionette side of all of this and while I will be happy to refine my thoughts if 5 is as great as 4 was.

Open Book: An Evening with Justin Furstenfeld

By Helen Bach | January 26, 2013

The “Approaching Normal” tour had a fit and energized Justin hip thrusting in his live show while the girls swooned. His “Every Man In America” Tour had a bloated scuffing scruffy Justin that had the women screaming I love you”. Crazy huh? You either want to save the guy or fuck him

‘A State Of Trance 600’ NYC Lineup

By Helen Bach | January 24, 2013

This thumping good time will be traveling through Madrid, India and The Netherlands but also swoops in to Madison Square Garden for one night of thrusty fun. The show is March 30th and will be broadcast live via Astateoftrance.com. THAT is worth hanging out for and watching.

Mod Sun Hitting The Road, Again

By Helen Bach | December 27, 2012

Mod Sun puts on one of the most energetic and engaging shows you will ever see. He does not sing ‘to’ you, he is literally singing with you and if you’re not careful that boy will jump down and hug you or sit on your lap or start a line dance.

Must See Concert: Rod Stewart, April 2013

By Iman Lababedi | December 22, 2012

Last time we were stuck with Stevie Nicks opening, this time round it is Stevie Winwood, the blue eyed soul keyboardist who you may remember from Arc Of A Diver, but I know as the 17 year wunderkind from the Spencer Davis Group, not to mention the Traffic star and, last time I saw him live was with Eric Clapton as half of a Blind Faith reunion

The Rolling Stones To Play Coachella Next Year?

By Alyson Camus | December 20, 2012

the Stones just had their 50-year anniversary celebration all over the east coast and haven’t played any dates on the west coast,… plus there was already a rumor they were playing Coachella last year and it didn’t happen

Three Albums Live: Yes On Tour

By Helen Bach | December 19, 2012

This whole ‘play an album’ concept is one of the most lazy ass things I have ever heard. The trend is mounting too. Rather than throw down a nice hodge podge for your work just put the bitch on auto piliot and sail through.

The Queen Extravaganza Tribute Tours The US

By Helen Bach | December 13, 2012

It cheapens the legacy, in my eyes. It really is nothing more than a money making tour scheme. I cant quite understand how legends such as May can even allow such a thing. After working so hard for so long, what’s the point?

Wayne Shorter To Carnegie Hall, February 1st, 2013

By Mahalia Dark | November 30, 2012

Shorter is playing a concert with the Orpheus Chamber Quartet at Carnegie Hall on February 1st . The man is a musical legend if only for his solo on Steely Dan’s “Aja”. If you are just starting off try the Blue Note The best of, which gives you the cream of his 1960s solo stuff.

The Hives To Open For Pink On 2013 Tour

By Mahalia Dark | November 15, 2012

The Hives are the opening act. And the Hives are an excellent fun type rock band live on stage… just real straight forward but huge amounts of fun and a pretty good fit for Pink’s smartass modern pop group.

Kings Of Leon Back In 2013

By Mahalia Dark | November 13, 2012

KoL have spent their time plotting (I guess!) and right now they are in the studio working on album # 6, their first since 2010 and already have some concert dates set for the UK in the summer of 2013, can the US be far behind???

Taylor Swift Tour Dates, 2013 -Ed Sheeran Career Making Opening Slot

By Iman Lababedi | October 29, 2012

his March, Taylor Swift is back on the road with three local shows at Newark, New Jersey (aka the Prudential), on March 27 & 28 & 29 in Newark, New Jersey which probably means MSG and or Barclays is still be be announced, or it means that Taylor will get to nyc on the second lap round. In 2010 she played MSG and got to Prudential the next time round, and in 2011 she slept us till the last night of the Speak Now tour.

Rod Stewart To Tour 2013

By Iman Lababedi | October 17, 2012

It is hard to understand where this all comes from, how does Rod Stewart at 65 (which he was when I saw him at MSG and 68 (which he will be when he tours) has simply the energy to get on stage and sing and dance for hours on end.

Take That For Stadium Tour In 2013 And I Am Telling You This Because…?

By Iman Lababedi | June 15, 2012

“Well you know what, I always get to this point and go ‘well nothing’s going to top that’, and then something else comes along. But I’ve gotta say, it’s going to take something very special to top that one.”

Stones To Tour 2013

By Iman Lababedi | March 17, 2012

. Richard really did a number on himself when he fell out of a tree in 2006 and, according to Rolling Stone magazine, who have better connects than rock nyc, is too ill for a world tower. So they may do 10 nights at MSG, 10 nights in L.A. and 10 nights in London
