    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!

            It’s been a while since Meat Loaf performed a concert in Nashville, TN, but on Wednesday August 29th the Nashville, TN, fans were ready for another concert by one of the masters of front men.  Meat Loaf and his band performed an excellent set at the full, but not sold-out, Ryman Auditorium.  Concert Blast co-hosts Mike Arnold and Tom Thompson were on hand and ready to record a concert review podcast, but they got the word from Meat Loaf’s staff to enjoy the show and not to worry about working… So They Did! Our friend Chris Johnson was on hand to take the concert photos for our Concert Blast friends to see… Enjoy!  We cetainly did!

                It was Sunday July 29th when Creed rolled in to Nashville, TN to thrill their fans once again.  In the past they performed at our former large amphitheatre and our huge arena, but this time around they performed at the intimate Ryman Auditorium.  They moved from 18,000 seat venues to a 2,300 seat venue… and it wasn’t close to a sellout.  The balcony was at 90% capacity with the floor about 60%. Mike Arnold and Tom Thompson were on hand for this night of hard rock music as Mike wrote the concert review… ENJOY!

                    It was a hot July day in Nashville, TN, but when the sun went down and the stage lights inside the Ryman Auditorium lit up, the night became even hotter!  Creed returned to the Music City with openers Like A Storm and Eve To Adam.  This was a night of high energy hard rock.  Mike Arnold and Tom Thompson was on hand for this event, but this post gives all the credit to our Concert Blast friend, Samantha (Sam) Shrader as she took the concert photos of Creed.  Enjoy Sam’s photos!

                                    I have told the story here on Concert Blast about how my dad brought home a record player one day when I was about seven years old.  That day changed my life forever and opened the world of music up to me.  My mom was a big country music fan and would buy many records.  She would sit in my bedroom with me and we would listen to many of them.  Loretta Lynn, Bing Crosby, Donna Fargo and the list goes on and on.  There was one album that she bought that I really liked and that was a Glen Campbell album.  My favorite song off that album was called “Gentle On My Mind”.  I soon discovered that this guy had his own tv show each week and I would watch it everytime it came on.  As I grew up and started listening to rock and roll music, Glen Campbell’s music remained on my record player along side Alice Cooper, The Who, Kiss and all of the other bands that I listened to.

                                        Glen Campbell In Concert - Nashville, TN - Ryman Auditorium - 11/30/2011

                                        It was the first of two farewell Nashville, TN concerts from Glen Campbell at the historic Ryman Auditorium.  James Downing of Concert Blast wanted to be there to capture the end of his career and an important era in country music, so he purchased a ticket as soon as they went on sale and received an excellent seat to the November 30, 2011 show.  A seat close enough to capture great photos of the lengendary performer.
