The Tribute Concerts (Bear Family Records). Review by James Mann.
For those in need of a concert that’s a little more theatrical than most, there’s Meat Loaf, served up with a side of Pearl. Jen Cray caught the Orlando date of the legendary rocker’s Hang Cool Teddy Bear Tour.
Throngs of faithful old-school arena rockers squeezed into their faded vintage Judas Priest and Iron Maiden T’s and partied once again like it was 1989 at the Tampa stop of the Scorpions “farewell” tour. Chris Long was, of course, among them.
Backwoods Barbie Collector’s Edition (Dolly). Review by Matthew Moyer.
The Rise Against/Rancid tour has been a hot ticket all summer, but only in Orlando was it scorching enough to not only require that a second date get added, but to result in a double night sell-out. Jen Cray squeezed into the pit for the opening evening.
