    Like A Storm with Concert Blast

    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!

            Mike Arnold and Brian Hasbrook of Concert Blast covered Saturday’s 2011 Memphis in May Beale Street Music Festival with artists; Lucinda Williams, Mumford and Sons, Jerry Lee Lewis, Hinder, and Paul Thorn. 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.

            Enjoy the concert photos taken by Brian Hasbrook on this day two of his Photo Postings.
