            Sheryl Crow - Chattanooga, TN

            Written by James Downing

            I have always loved a pretty girl with a guitar… And when they could sing I loved them even more.  Joan Jett, Susanna Hoffs, Nancy Wilson, Lita Ford and all of the rest of the female rockers always caught my eye.  Now, the first time I saw Sheryl Crow on TV with that big red bass, I knew I was hooked before she ever opened her mouth.  Over the years she has become my very favorite female singer.  I was over-joyed when I heard that she was putting out a new CD this summer and was going on a tour to support it.  Continue Reading…

                        On Saturday July 10th, 2010, Concert Blast accepted the invitation to cover the Scorpions farewell concert from their current “Get Your Sting and Blackout Tour,” as the tour stopped in Nashville, TN.

                        With Tom Thompson on vacation and James Downing attending another show in Memphis, Concert Blast photographer Brian Hasbrook and I attended the show. Here’s the Concert Review.

                        It’s been decades since I had the opportunity to witness a Scorpions concert.  In fact I had never seen them as a headliner!  I always thought that the Scorpions was a good (not great) opening act, but on this night my mind was definitely changed as the Scorpions made believers out of the estimated 6,000 hard rock fans in attendance!

                        The house lights flickered as a warning for people to get to their seats, an AC/DC song blasted over the house PA system to get the fans ready for a night of excitement.  As soon as the song ended, the house lights went down, the stage lights came up and the rockers in the crowd screamed as they anticipated the Scorpions to take the stage for the last time in Nashville, TN (if this is actually a Farewell Tour).

                            80s hard rock favorites RATT opened the show to an estimated crowd of 6,000 in attendance.  When RATT took the stage to flashing lights and noises blasting through the PA system, the crowd became immediately on their feet and remained there for most of the night.
