The Metal Tour Of The Year made a stop in Auburn, WA at White River Amphitheatre and literally set the place on fire. Hot damn! This must-see tour is co-headlined by Megadeth and Lamb of God, but the metal insanity doesn’t stop there. The two metal giants are joined by special guests Trivium and Hatebreed. What a lineup!

Anyway, tickets and VIP packages for the tour can be purchased at metaltouroftheyear.com.

Dropkick Murphys played a high energy set at The Mann Center in Philadelphia, PA earlier this week. The band were performing with fellow rockers Rancid on their Boston to Berkley II tour. I made the drive to Philly from Silver Spring, MD to cover this musical event, and I was not disappointed. The band performed a flawless set of their signature sounding tunes. Well worth the drive.

Anyway, Dropkick Murphys are still on a co-headlining tour with Rancid. Tickets for the Boston to Berkley II tour can be purchased at www.DropkickMurphys.com or www.RancidRancid.com.

Trippie Redd’s “Trip at Knight Tour” stopped in St. Louis and put on an amazing performance August 28, 2021. The St. Louis Music Park was packed full of adoring fans and photographers. The atmosphere was intense, and the entire experience had a somewhat chaotic element to it. Redd’s performance was super high energy, and Redd himself was super high as well.

Anyway, in this photo flashback, we’re taking a trip down memory lane with Trippie Redd. There are only a few stops left on his Trip at Knight Tour. Be sure to check out the Official Trippie Redd Website for tickets, music, news, videos, merch, and all upcoming tour dates. Continue reading below for more photos from the show in St. Louis.

It was a rainy Sunday night on August 8, 2021 when Dermot Kennedy took the stage at The Pageant in St. Louis. The venue hummed with the energy that only a sold out show could provide. The show itself was emotional for me in numerous ways. This was the first concert I attended since the pandemic started in early 2020, over a year ago. Just being back in a crowd of like-minded music lovers was enough to send tingles straight down my spine.

Anyway, tickets for upcoming Dermot Kennedy shows can be purchased at dermotkennedy.com/tour.
