      The Who Concert Review – Nashville, TN – Bridgestone Arena

        The Who Quadrophenia Tour
        The Who returned to Nashville for the first time in many decades.  In fact the last time The Who performed in Middle Tennessee was when they had the original lineup including Keith Moon and John Entwistle.  That was “The Who By Numbers” tour in the mid 1970’s.  Today there are only two original members still living and they are still performing with the energy level and playing ability they’ve always had, even though Roger Daltrey and Pete Townshend are now in their late 60s.  The Who is currently on tour celebrating the anniversary of the Quadrophenia album.  Brian Hasbrook and Mike Arnold were looking forward to seeing The Who again, but preferred a greatest hits show instead of a album concept show.  Enjoy Mike Arnold’s concert review of The Who in Nashville, TN.

                    Styx made their return to Nashville, TN to perform another concert at the historic Ryman Auditorium.  We really didn’t know who enjoyed this show more, the fans or Tommy Shaw getting to perform on the former Grand Ole Opry stage again.  This show was mostly a greatest hits concert with a few of the older FM album cuts thrown in for fun (as it should be).  Enjoy Mike Arnold’s concert review as he takes you through the set list to describe Styx’s Nashville concert.

                        Nashville, TN seems to a regular tour stop for Styx as they performed in concert on Thursday November 8th at the Ryman Auditorium.  The fans in attendance were ready for another visit by one of the best live performers in the music business as they gave an excellent set at the full, but not sold-out, Ryman Auditorium.  Our guest photographer, Samantha Shrader, lent us her talent once again…  Enjoy the photos!

                            Here in the United States of America we just had another election and this time it was to elect the Chief Executive, also known as The President of the United Sates of America.  During this election President Obama was re-elected to be the chief of the free world again, but to get there he had some help from some of the top artists in the music industry.

                                Train returned to Nashville, TN to perform another one of their memorable concerts… at least they tried before Mother Nature stepped in.  Train performed about fifty minutes of their California 37 Tour set before they were ordered to leave the stage and say goodbye to their 5,000 plus SRO Train fans.  Mike Arnold, Brian Hasbrook, and Tom Thompson of Concert Blast were on hand to capture the live experience through a concert review podcast with lots of live clips while the fun lasted.  Enjoy listening to our podcast with lots of live clips and/or reading the written blog concert review!
