So I happened to get free tickets to see Three Days Grace and Alter Bridge play the MLB All Star Game Kickoff Concert at the Roseland Ballroom in New York City, NY. Unfortunately, the venue was half-full because

  1. No one sells out Roseland Ballroom anymore.
  2. MLB decided to promote the Bon Jovi concert at Central Park the next day (which I would’ve gone to but it wasn’t guaranteed admission, first come first serve my ass)
  3. The radio station promoting it, K-Rock didn’t start promoting it/giving away tickets until about a week before the event.

I’m pretty sure that Three Days Grace didn’t know that they were playing the gig until Friday afternoon.
Alter Bridge opened the show and played for about 45 minutes. They played Open Up Your Eyes, Rise Today, Before Tomorrow Comes and few other songs that bored me. The hits weren’t bad though despite the fact that I was sober.
Three Days Grace rocked the **** outta the place. Adam Gontier, the lead singer, covered Alice in Chains’s “Rooster” and the whole band covered Filter’s “Hey Man Nice Shot.” Here are some videos and pics. Enjoy.

Shakira became the latest artist to leave their label for a deal with Live Nation following Madonna and Jay-Z. She’ll reportedly make at least 69,500,000 dollars more than you would in your whole life. In return, Live Nation gets a cut of Shakira’s touring, merch opportunities (all hip and lap dances, etc), future album releases (after her deal for three more albums with Epic is up) and her soul(provided that Live Nation can cut a deal with the devil). Unlike Live Nation’s other deals, I think that this one will fully flop. Do you even think that Shakira will make three more albums? Maybe one more and a christmas one (Feliz Navidad, it’s July!). I thought they got rid of Michael Cohl to avoid deals like these.

Scott Weiland is ready to hurt your ears again with another solo album coming out this fall. This time though, he’s enlisted the help of No Doubt drummer Adrian Young. Wait, it gets better. It’s going to be a DOUBLE disc. We can finally hear Weiland show off his true talent: polka.
