Foo Fighters Rocked Wembley Stadium (in June) but you can watch it today!

July 17, 2008 drainu182 0

The Foo Fighters played two MASSIVE shows at London’s Wembley Stadium on June 6 and 7. Unfortunately, because we’re in a different timezone than England, we see it at a different time.. and day. At 2pm EST, you can watch it at MSN’s site. This is the only good thing that MSN has ever done. It tried to take down AOL but failed. And everyone hated AOL. MSN is like the ugly girl that wanted to go out with …

July 14, 2008 drainu182 0

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

Shakira and her “honest” hips are going to Live Nation

July 4, 2008 drainu182 3

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).
