R. Kelly comingf to Wolstein Center in April

By Malcolm Abram Published: March 21, 2016

R. Kelly is coming to the Wolstein Center. I saw him and Jay-Z on their ill-fated tour, litigious co-tour at CSU. At one point Kels was rocking a loosek-fitting purple leather suit with a giant "diamond" encrusted tongue/lips (a'la the Rolling Stones iconic logo)...A woman held up her toddler to him, seemingly as an was about 11 p.m. on a Sunday (maybe Monday) night.

That's about all I have to say about Kels.

Joe Walsh and Bad Company coming to Blossom in June

By Malcolm Abram Published: March 4, 2016

Another pairing of classic rockers hits the road this summer with a stop at Blossom Music Center on Sunday, June 26...
Walsh has his old buddy and Cleveland guy Joe Vitale on drums, so at least his band will be hilarious. Vitale's got some great rock n' roll stories from his days with the Eagles and CSNY. His tour stories can make The Eagles actually seem like a fun bunch of rock dudes instead of a couple of talented, coked up, Type A, egotistical a-holes plus Joe Walsh.

Anyway, three days after Joe and BadCo. on Wednesday, June 29, another crew of sexegenarian rockers comes through in the form of Journey and The Doobie Bros.

Tickets for Walsh and BadCo. go onsale Friday, March 11

On to the official screed:
