        On Friday night, May 22nd, 2009, The Wildhorse Saloon in Nashville, TN brought one of the most talented bands still playing Classic Rock music today back to Nashville, Starship featuring Mickey Thomas. On this particular night, Starship had a special guest performing with them, Bobby Kimball of Toto, and one surprised guest that was later announced in the show. With all these artists playing the in the same set meant a night of nothing but classic rock hits.

        As the house lights went down and the band members took the stage, the loud, clear voice of Mickey Thomas belted over the PA speakers, “Hey Everybody!” The band immediately began the opening notes of “Find Your Way Back”. The band continued the set without hesitation or saying anything with, “No Way Out”.

                The Elton John and Billy Joel Face 2 Face Tour rolled into Nashville’s Sommet Center Saturday night, May 16th, 2009, and what a show it was. A few minutes after 7:30 PM, two large floor panels in the huge stage started to open and up rose two grand pianos.  The sold out crowd rose to it’s feet as The Piano Man himself, Billy Joel, strolled out from the right side of the stage. Shortly followed came Capt. Fantastic, Sir Elton John, from the left side. They met in the middle of the stage and greeted each other and then took their seats behind their keyboards.

                Neither one of the legends wasted anytime giving the fans what they wanted. Elton started the show with “Your Song“, which is one of the all time favorites.  His voice sounded just as good as it did when he first recorded this song 30 years ago. It then became dueling Piano Men as Billy Joel broke into “Just The Way You Are“.  Each superstar took turns doing a song. This set consisted of two other songs, Elton’s “Dont Let The Sun Go Down On Me” and Billy’s “My Life“.   At this time Billy left the stage and left it all to Elton.

                    Spring is in the air and it’s the month of May! For the last 4 years, Concert Blast has taken the road trip to Memphis, TN to report on the Beale Street Music Festival as part of the city’s Memphis In May festivities. Below is a report from Tom Thompson on the Friday night excitement as he and a couple of his friends enjoyed the festivities.  Although the Music Festival continues during the rain, unfortunately the guys were rained out for the Saturday and Sunday shows.

                    Starting off we would like to thank our friends with Memphis in May for their hospitality. As it turned out, Friday was forecasted for rains all evening. Arriving at the festival we encountered just some overcast skies but otherwise a beautiful Memphis evening.
