Concerts

Almost every concert we attend gets reviewed so that you get an idea what it was like.

The Wall Comes to Life in Roger Waters' 30th Anniversary Show

Saying that I'm a fan of Pink Floyd and of The Wall doesn't see to really cover exactly how I feel about their work and this particular album. To this day I remember the first time I really listened to it in it's entirety and the mixture of awe, identification and absolute confusion I felt afterward.

Better Than Ezra Still Puts on a Pretty Fun Live Show

Never one to pass up a good concert if I have any choice in the matter, I have once again been attending musical events with vigor. This time it was a band that I've seen a few times before and they've always put on a good, fun, high energy show: Better Than Ezra.

The Mars Volta, an Incredible Live Experience

It was well over two months ago that I was lucky enough to see this band live. I meant to write a review almost immediately, but between site overhauls, other issues and a series of delays, this is the first time I'm actually getting around to doing so properly. Consider it a testament to how much I enjoyed this show that I'm still writing a review so much later.

Incubus Continues to Bring Complex and Exciting Music to the Stage: A Concert Review

Well I just couldn't keep away... my concert addiction continues... not that I'm really complaining. This time I caught a band I've seen a total of four times now, and will probably make an effort to catch every time they come around because they're a favorite of mine, and they always put on a great show: Incubus.

Still Grateful to See the Dead Jamming Live: A Concert Review

As someone who didn't grow up during the 1960s, being enamored with the music of that era has always left me feeling a little detached. Most of my favorite bands/artists stopped touring years before I was even born and in many cases their albums proceeded me by as many as 20 years! That may not have tempered my love of those bands any, but it has left me a little unsatisfied in terms of attending concerts.

The Dividing of the Pumpkins Fans, Part 2: A Concert Review

This is part 2 of a 4 part piece I am writing, inspired by a pair of Smashing Pumpkins concerts and a DVD documentary. As you may or may not know, I am a big Smashing Pumpkins fan, I always appreciate their work. I feel the need to preface this piece by saying that as it will give you an insight into the context of my commentary.

Playing Like it Actually Ii the Farewell Tour: The Eagles - A Concert Review

September was a good month for concerts here at the Soul of Rock 'n' Roll, and because of that, I can post some concert reviews this month. I was able to see two of the amazing shows, by two very different artists, at two very different venues, amazingly making for two incredible, but very different shows. And it just so happened that they both happened within a few days of each other, making for one stellar week for me.

The Uplifting Magic of Santana Live: A Concert Review

There is always something extra special about going to a concert that cannot be found in other music formats. Albums, even live albums, just don't seem to be able to capture all of the energy and atmosphere in the room when a band is on stage performing. That isn't to say that the albums aren't any good as usually they're very good at capturing the energy of a specific musical moment, but it is a different experience than a concert. Concert have just more magic, and a more palpable energy.

James Taylor: One Man Band

A few nights ago I was watching PBS again (no surprise by now I expect) and I caught another interesting concert event: James Taylor: One Man Band. The show was songs taken from the CD/DVD set of the same name that was released just last year. Now, I'm not a huge James Taylor fan compared to some, but I do appreciate his music and thing many of his songs and many of he early albums are complete classics. I've seen James Taylor live before, but this particular event really caught my eye because it is just Taylor on stage with his guitar(s) and keyboardist/pianist Larry Goldings.
