It’s weird not seeing Roger Waters dates on Pollstar or anywhere else. After nearly two years of touring, The Wall is over. The greatest rock opera ever presented (ahem,…Quadrophenia?!) came to and end in Quebec City on July 21st. This latest crew has taken The Wall to a fantastic new level. Roger’s latest adaptation has given The Wall fresh application to today’s issues of war, privacy, governmental and corporate overreach. Destine to go down in history as one of the greatest rock tours ever, The Wall and it’s influence on our culture will remain. So cheers to Roger for keeping The Wall at the top of our collective minds. We will not forget. Check out this fan clip of “Mother”.
Roger Daltrey and Pete Townshend, the rock and roll power duo that make up The Who, are hitting the road once again. They’ll roam the States, serving up a feast of fine tunes that will help you remember what rock was and still can be. The tour will present “Quadrophenia” plus Who classics. This trip down memory lane will deliver some new visual twists. The captains of mod are ready to rock you.
Santana in Vegas! Yeah, that’s right. The hottest guitarist on the planet is on the hottest strip on the planet. Doing some Vegas dates, then kicking it out for some road jams, then returning to Vegas for a run on the strip through the year. All of this is accompanied by the release of his 36th album, “Shape Shifter”. Wow! It’s great to see Carlos and company out there. Putting out the spiritual jams for the masses. Just like he’s always done. More….
Stephen Stills is on the road. Working the riffs and rhythms you know and love. Stephen has been out pushing his wares. His website is promoting the “Live At Shepherds Bush” CD/DVD. A really strong performance at a great venue outside London. And also released, a collection of 1968 demos called “Just Roll Tape.” Stephens career in music provides a great historical link to American culture of the late 60’s, and 70’s. It’s great to go back to Buffalo Springfield, CSNY, and get a flavor of the past. more…..
