Motley Crue: The Final Tour at Giant Center 22 Jun 2015, 7:00 am












Not able to see Motley Crue’s Final Tour last year? Worry no more, Crue fans…not only will you be able to see them full tilt, you’ll get to enjoy another music icon…Alice Cooper.

“In some of the cities, we could only reach a fraction of the fans who wanted to come see us play last year because of ticket demand so we’re coming back to those places to bring them our full production including the Crüecifly drum coaster, as well as all pyro and every other bell and whistle. Even despite the overwhelming fan demand we can only add so many new cities in North America because of our commitment to take the Final Tour global on our final year.” ~ Nikki Sixx

After touring and playing for thirty four years, the group announced their two year final tour by signing a Cessation Of Touring Agreement January 2014 at a press conference in Los Angeles. Not wanting fans to miss the opportunity to say goodbye, Motley Crue gave them the chance to “demand” where they wanted the group to perform…and charted it on a heat map. See all the good stuff at their website..

Live On Tour Van Halen at Hersheypark Stadium 1 Jun 2015, 7:00 am







It’s sure to be one hot night in August when Van Halen takes the stage at Hersheypark Stadium with their “Live On Tour” show…special guest will be Kenny Wayne Shepherd Band.

Formed in 1972, in Pasadena, California, Van Halen forever changed the face of rock and roll. From 1974 until 1985, the band consisted of guitarist Eddy Van Halen, vocalist David Lee Roth, drummer Alex Van Halen and bassist Michael Anthony. By the early 80’s, these guys were wildly successful…in fact one of the most popular bands of the time. 1984 was their most successful album, with the single “Jump” being an international hit and the only single of theirs to reach number one on the Billboard Hot 100. They have, however, charted the most number one hits in the history of Billboard’s Mainstream Rock chart and are one of the world’s best-selling bands. The band was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2007. Not without their problems, the band changed members over the years with the current lineup being David Lee Roth, Eddie Van Halen, Alex Van Halen and Wolfgang Van Halen (Eddie’s son).

Kenny Wayne Shepherd began his recording career at the early age of 16..known for his guitar skills and leaning heavily on the blues, he has made an impressive name for himself and his band. Kenny’s latest album, “Goin’ Home” was released in May 2014.
