                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.

                            Written by Mike Arnold
                            Back in the late 1960s Elvis Presley started a trend in Las Vegas that still continues today, rock music at casinos.  This trend seemed to work for the casino business, although I personally never understood the mix.  If you are visiting a casino, it seems to me that music would be the last thing on your mind, unless you are celebrating a huge payoff!  If I wanted to attend a concert at a casino, gambling would be the last thing on my mind, but I’m not a gambler.

                                It was Saturday, August 25th, when Grand Funk Railroad returned to Nashville, TN to perform once again for the umpteenth time.  Grand Funk hasn’t performed in Nashville since early in this century, but in the past they have thrilled their fans with concerts many times.  With Mark Farner out of the picture these days, Max Carl on guitar /vocals and former KISS lead guitarist Bruce Kulick has filled the gap, and have done it very well.  Mike Arnold, with special guest host, Concert Blast #1 fan, Vivian Johnson, were on hand to review this concert song by song and supply many live clips of this night for the podcast.  Enjoy this Concert Review (audio podcast and written blog) and the special sing along at the end of the podcast with the original Concert Blast staff and GFR’s original drummer, Don Brewer!

                                    Saturday August 22nd was a wet day in Nashville, TN, but by the afternoon the sun appeared to make a beautiful evening for a concert in the Music City.  Approximately 4,000 Classic Rock music fans attended the Grand Funk Railroad concert at Riverfront Park.  Our Michigan friend (and huge Grand Funk Railroad fan) Craig Clingan was on hand to take the concert photos of the headliner for our Concert Blast friends to see… ENJOY!

                                        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!
