    Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers In Concert - Nashville, TN 9/23/2014

    Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers In Concert - Nashville, TN 9/23/2014

    It was Tuesday September  23rd in Nashville, TN while thousands of Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers fans were very excited to see one of the best singer/songwriters in the Classic Rock Music genre… and one of the very few rockers from that era that still releases (and sells) new music today.  Concert Blast was invited to the Nashville party with photo credentials so our friend Samantha Shrader stepped up to help us out once again to take the concert photos of Tom Petty and his Heartbreakers, since Brian Hasbrook was out of town. Thank You Sam!  Enjoy her photos…

        Journey (Arnel Pineda) In Concert - Nashville, TN 9/12/2014

        Journey (Arnel Pineda) In Concert - Nashville, TN 9/12/2014

        Journey returned their rock show to Nashville, TN to thrill about 14,000 rock music fans at the Bridgestone Arena on September 12th, 2014 and Concert Blast was invited to cover the party. Nashville, TN seems to always be included on a Journey tour anytime they head to the eastern side of the country.  After seeing them perform here several times, I understand the reason … lots of Journey fans!  If that is not reason enough, then maybe because keyboardist/guitarist Jonathan Cain also lives in this Music City.  Enjoy the Journey concert review with very special guests Joan Jett and the Blackhearts written by Mike Arnold.

            Journey (Neal Schon) In Concert - Nashville, TN 9/12/2014

            It was a magical Friday night in Nashville, TN as Journey returned to the Music City.  The city of Nashville is full of Journey fans and they came out to party and sing-along with Concert Blast and about 14,000 other lovers of 70′s/80′s rock music.  Mike Arnold was on hand for the review while Tom Thompson had a prior engagement and photographer Brian Hasbrook was out of town.  So who do we always go to first to get the best concert photos when Brian is not available?  Sam Shrader of course.  Enjoy the concert photos of Neal Schon, Ross Vallory, Nashvillian Jonathan Cain, Deen Castronova, and the highly energetic Arnel Pineda.
