Elton John has canceled nine upcoming shows, including his remaining dates at Caesar’s Palace in Vegas, and he has a good excuse: He almost DIED.

He recently performed a series of shows in South America, and he became “violently ill” on the flight back. It turned out he’d contracted a “harmful and unusual” bacterial infection. His rep quickly took the mic:

“Upon returning to the U.K., his doctors admitted him to hospital, where he underwent immediate treatment to remove the infection . . . Infections of this nature are rare and potentially deadly.”

Fortunately, it sounds like Elton will be all right. He was [More]

The Boss And His Rarities, Live And In Concert

  • 5:49 am Monday, April 17th, 2017 by Aaron

Bruce Springsteen has announced he’s got more classic concerts queued up for release – making public a professional recording of his 2008 show in St. Louis.

The reason this show stuck out for the Boss is made apparent in a blurb written about the performance on his website:

Bruce seemed to revel in the challenge, while the suggestions also appeared to inspire him to resurrect songs he hadn’t played in decades. There’s no finer show to capture this fan-artist dynamic than this outstanding performance in St. Louis on 8/23/2008 including the surprise [More]

Journey fans, it wasn’t EXACTLY what you were looking for, but it is a step in the right direction!

Rumors were flying pretty intensely that former lead singer Steve Perry was going to join his ex-band mates on stage at the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony. What nobody knew though, was if Perry would be getting along with decades old arch-nemesis, and former co-writer Neal Schon.

Those fears were laid to rest pretty quickly when Perry took the mic and gave praise to the guitar virtuoso.

Unfortunately for Journey fans, Perry opted not to take the stage with the band [More]

  • 5:47 am Monday, April 3rd, 2017 by Aaron

When Kansas shows up to Jacksonville in December to play the “Leftoverture 40th Anniversary Tour” they’ll obviously be playing this track.

It may sound a little different than the audio below, that’s because the YouTube track is actually the boys in Anthrax shredding this legendary tune.

I have to admit they did a killer job with it!
