Concert review - KISS - “Freedom To Rock” 2016 tour

Review / photos - John Jeffrey

When KISS had announced their 2016 Summer “Freedom To Rock” tour in America, it came as somewhat of a surprise, as there was much speculation regarding whether or not KISS would tour this year in the US, as it was heavily rumored that KISS would be doing a European trek this time around.  In addition, there was some discussion about KISS doing the Live Nations sheds, but KISS' opted to stay cool this summer by playing mostly indoor arenas, instead of the hot and sweaty, outdoor amphitheaters.

Concert review - ZZ Top - Darien Lake PAC, Darien, NY - August 23, 2016

Review / Photos by Thomas S. Orwat Jr.

Darien NY - Classic rock legends, ZZ Top (consisting of all three original members - Billy F. Gibbons - guitar/vocals, Dusty Hill - bass/vocals, Frank Beard - drums), returned to the WNY area for what seems to be becoming an annual summer event.  This time around, the "little-'ol-band from Texas," which formed in 1969, played in front of approximately 4000, in an amphitheater with the capacity of 21,000.  While there were a few younger people in the audience, the majority of patrons were 45 years of age or older - much older in some cases.

Concert review - Goo Goo Dolls - Darien Lake PAC, Darien NY - August 20, 2016

Review / Photos By Thomas S. Orwat Jr.

For over two decades, the Goo Goo Dolls have taken their hometown of Buffalo, NY, on the most incredible journey.  The dynamic duo of John Rzeznik and Robby Takac have made Buffalo proud with their incredible record-setting string of chart-topping songs and memorable concert performances.  The Goo Goo Dolls are just as important to their hometown as the major league sports teams: the Bills and Sabres.  On last Saturday evening, the band gave us another concert experience to never forget.  The Goo Goo Dolls, which are currently touring in support of their dynamic new release, 'Boxes,' played an inspired and passionate set in front of 12,000 admiring fans.  The audience varied in ages, from the long-time fan of 30 years, to their children seeing the band for the first time.  This is something they take very seriously, with Rzeznik explaining during the band's 22-song performance, that he is always "nervous" about playing in front of his hometown audience.

Concert review - Styx - Artpark, Lewiston, NY - Aug. 16, 2016

Review & photos by John Jeffrey
 
Lewiston, NY - With the skies overcast and cloudy, and intermittent rain showers throughout the day in Western New York, it was hard to surmise what kind of night it would be for Styx's highly anticipated return to ArtPark's "Tuesdays in the Park" concert series.  Thankfully, for the diehard Styx fans and casual music fans in attendance, the weather wound up being the most ideal conditions you could ask for, for an outdoor concert.  It was truly the perfect scenario, as Styx drew one of the biggest crowds to Artpark this year and played a courageously diverse set list, which was very impressive, coming from what most people refer to as a 'nostalgia' or 'heritage' act.

Concert review - RockFest 2016 - Featuring: Bret Michaels , WARRANT, Lita Ford - Erie County Fairgrounds, Hamburg, NY - August 10, 2016

Review - John Jeffrey, Photos - Thomas S. Orwat Jr.

Hamburg, NY - If one were forced to come up with a cliche headline for the Erie County Fair's opening night concert on Wednesday night (aka "Rockfest"), the most fitting one I could think of would be, "The Good, The Bad, and the Not so Ugly."
