        Alter Bridge In Concert - Nashville, TN 5-11-2011

        Alter Bridge In Concert - Nashville, TN 5-11-2011

        It was a Wednesday May 11th, 2011 in Nashville, TN and the Cannery Ballroom had a Sold-Out crowd ready to be a part of the Alter Bridge experience.  Alter Bridge brought out the excitement in this crowd as fists were pumping in the air and voices were singing along to nearly every song performed that night.  The opener for the night, Like-A-Storm, warmed up this energetic crowd and then gave us an interview.  Concert Blast had Mike Arnold, Tom Thompson, James Downing, and special guest host, Ryan Stapleton on hand to provide this audio podcast.

            Like A Storm with Concert Blast

            The publicist for Like-A-Storm (Lena Wilson) contacted Concert Blast for us to cover their Nashville, TN opening slot for Alter Bridge.  We usually don’t cover up and coming bands, but after researching these guys, we discovered they had a great story of how they moved to Canada from New Zealand and in a few short years recorded an album and found themselves opening for Creed on a U.S. tour.  So we had to cover these guys!  Mike Arnold, Tom Thompson, James Downing, and special guest host Ryan Stapleton (a huge Alter Bridge fan and who also lived in New Zealand for a year) covered the night.  A fun interview will also be on our Concert Review Podcast.  For now, enjoy the photos!

Unfortunately, JohnMellencamp did not allow the media into the photo pit and Ke$ha’s stage show was too dark for the non-flash cameras.

                                This show is a popular reposted Music Discussion podcast from 2008 on songs that contain the phrase, “Rock and Roll”. 

                                Mike Arnold, Brian Hasbrook, and Tom Thompson discuss various songs and artists.  The guys read emails from their listeners who submitted their favorite songs, along with the Classic Rock Forum on Myspace (hey, I said it was originally posted in 2008!).
