Tips For Finding Nickelback Concert Tickets Online

August 29th, 2016

If you want to see Nickelback live, you can get a schedule of their tour online. They should be coming to your area within the next few months. You can also buy Nickelback concert tickets on the internet. Make sure you only order from legitimate sellers. There are some unfortunate scams online, and it’s not unusual for fans to lose a lot of money on buying “tickets” that turn out to be fake.

Seeing Nickelback live is a great experience. They are one of the top bands in the world, and their performance will truly blow you away. This Canadian band has been around for years—probably even longer than you might think. Chad and his brother Mike started the band back in the early 1990’s, when they started playing covers of their favorite rock songs. Their own local success was only moderate, but they eventually rose to fame over the next decade.

The prices for Nickelback concert tickets vary, depending on location, seating, availability, etc. If you’ve never bought concert tickets online before, then you need to begin by obtaining a schedule of their upcoming appearances. Find out when they’re going to be in your area, and then take a look at the seating chart at the nearest venue. From there, you can try to find out which seats are still available.

Your next step, of course, is to look at ticket prices online. How much money will it cost you to get as close to the stage as you can? Obviously, prices can vary depending on availability and the sellers themselves, but you can still get a general idea. Shop around and do a bit of research on which ticket sellers are the best.

Don’t miss a chance to see Nickelback live. Years from now, you may regret not seeing them. If they’re one of your favorite bands, then make an effort to see them up close at a concert. The internet makes finding seats and buying tickets easy, and you need to look into all your options so that you can get the best seats possible!

Compare the prices of Nickelback concert tickets online. Even if you don’t think you’ll have enough money to buy any tickets, you may be surprised at how inexpensive they can be. All it takes is a little looking around!

Reasons to Come to Rome This Summer – The Concert Scene!

August 23rd, 2016

Someone up there heard my prayer, and Rome’s summer concert lineup is pretty sweet! Back in November I bought my tickets to last night’s Depeche Mode show at the Olympic Stadium in hopes they’d be the first of many favorite bands to grace my city, and they didn’t let me down at all, despite my fear Dave wouldn’t pull through his recent illness and the show would be cancelled. Seeing him perform again, 10 years after I last saw Depeche Mode, it was hard to believe he recently had surgery, but I was glad to see that Dave and the whole band still brought the same energy to the stage they did when I was 16. Though in my opinion the Olympic Stadium may not be as well set up to handle concerts as other venues in Rome simply due to its size and the level of organization required, Depeche Mode did an awesome job of actually reaching out and connecting with their audience, as always. Besides, they still sound fantastic!

Luckily for as much as I anticipated the event, the fun still isn’t over, and I’m concert hopping at least until the end of July…..still hoping more groups I like will head South in August (Manu Chao, Amanda Palmer, Royksopp, Jerry Cantrell, Marilyn Manson, Combichrist, Infected Mushroom and the rest of you-get your asses in gear! Your Italian fans love you too and are equally willing to buy tickets to your shows!). For now, there are plenty of non-historic reasons to visit Rome this summer, and anyway, it’s nice to have another excuse to visit a city most people dream about. My lineup goes something like this at the moment:

Nouvelle Vague @ Circolo Degli Artisti (check out their site for details, but it costs E10)-sure they’re a cover band, but I really like their loungey sound.

Tiesto! While I lived in Amsterdam I was always too busy/broke/whatever to make it to any of his shows, and when I lived in the States I was always working when he passed through. Can’t wait!

Chris Cornell-Yes, he rocks even solo! I saw him when I was 15 and when I heard his 50 ft voice come out of his miniscule frame I knew I’d seen God and would await the day I had another opportunity.

Franz Ferdinand/The Killers as part of the Rock In Roma Festival. I’m going more for Franz Ferdinand, but The Killers interest me too, and last time I saw Franz Ferdinand I had an awesome time even by myself.  Aside from being entertaining, it’s nice to see rockstars who enjoy their fame instead of lamenting it.

July 22nd-the icing on the cake-NINE INCH NAILS MY FAVORITE GROUP IN THE UNIVERSE HAS FINALLY FINALLY DECIDED TO COME TO ROME AND NOT JUST BOLOGNA OR MILAN!!!!! THANK YOU TRENT!! They too are part of the Rock in Roma Festival and the highlight of my summer. I’ve seen then 4 times to date.  Aside from having beautiful songs and sounding fantastic, they bring the whole package, connecting with the crowd, energizing them, and being visually appealing as well.

July 24th-Miss Kitten and Ellen Alien!  Nice to break up the rock with some good djing.

Concerts and other events of course are often the scene of much disorganization here what with minimal, infrequent bus and taxi service, so some forethought may help in planning your own event calendar.  IF you can drive or catch a ride, especially back from the show, please do so!  It may mean the difference between getting to bed by 3am and hitchhiking down Appia Nuova at said time.  If not, do note that the night bus stops are almost definitely useless as so many people will get on before you that you needn’t even dream of trying to find a spot.  Empty taxis circle like broken toys picking up no one and staying empty for no particular reason while some search in vain for people who called half an hour prior.  Calling a taxi works, but beware, as aside from the E5.80 night charge, they will also actually run the meter from the time your call is placed until the time they drop you off.  Better instead to use a reliable transfer service, as for a flat rate of E45-E70 they can get you where you’re going for only slightly more than a taxi would cost, with no hidden fees, and quite possibly in your native language, or at least English.  One such company is Fortuna Car Service, which handles transfers at a very low cost and is quite reliable.  Other benefits to this include a guaranteed pick up time and place, and not having to wait half the night for a ride….or until morning for regular bus service, which then gets backed up in rush hour traffic.  Or if you choose to try your luck and take matters into your own hands, at least make sure to try and flail down cabs at least a bus stop or 2 up from the main one at your venue.  There will still be a wait, but your minimal luck at least doubles here.  Then again, the journey is always half the fun, even when it’s the journey back and even the most trying will always be another story to tell.  And remember, bus and train routes can be found by typing ATAC Roma into google, as this brings up our city’s transit authority website.

After navigating the transit obstacle, it’s always best to make sure on top of all levels of my favorite city’s disorganization.  Check all band websites, ticket sites, venue sites, and maybe even ask your ticket agent themselves (on the off chance they should be open and responding to either telephone or in-person calls) to make sure your show hasn’t been:

1) Cancelled.

2) Starting at a different time for unspecified reasons.

3) Change of venues.

4) Postponed for a later date.

5) Lineup switches.

6) Impossible to reach due to strikes.

7) And lastly, if there is a strike, just go down to your nearest subway station or bus hub and see what kind it is.  Even a sciopero generale is often not general, and the unannounced ones are the strikes that are truly full scale.

All this and you should arrive right as rain…..and of course, your and my favorite artists are worth almost anything right?

Last but not least, remember tickets online often cost MUCH more than at a direct box office, though it’s often confusing to find WHICH box office you need.  Feltrinelli, the bookstore, has offices which do sell a decent variety of the most popular acts breezing through our city, and they do give refunds at only a slight loss to you.  A lot of these direct offices operate on cash only, so make sure to hit the ATM first!

Of course, other bands than those listed are coming too, and though they may not be my favorite, they might be yours, so it’s definitely worth checking out, and I’ll keep everyone updated on events….And don’t let my transport warnings scare you off!  I found a way and so will you.  One thing is certain; musically speaking, this is definitely the summer to visit Rome.

In Honor of Woodstock, the Best Rock Documentaries and Concert Films by Far

August 18th, 2016

I’m one of those unfortunate children of the seventies who was old enough to know about Woodstock as it was happening, but way too young to attend. This cruel injustice stuck in my craw then, but the pain has eased with repeat viewings of the seminal documentary shot in and around this incredible “happening” exactly forty years ago, come this weekend.

Watching this and other similar titles, I’ve found that if you’re equipped with a decent home theatre and quality speakers, it’s hard to go wrong with a rock concert film. On a fundamental level, if you like the music, chances are you’ll be entertained. And since great rock is also timeless, you’re also likely to draw in the younger generation, and thus end up with a real crowd-pleaser. Here now are ten rock concert/performance films I always swear by:

A Hard Day’s Night (1964)- With this landmark film, director Richard Lester unveiled the inner workings of a rock n’ roll band experiencing unprecedented super-stardom. The disarming charisma and spontaneous energy of the Beatles made no traditional plot necessary. It was sufficient to portray a day in the life of the world’s most talked about rock band. Lester’s documentary-style shooting makes the proceedings feel breathtakingly real- all four Beatles were natural performers, especially John and Ringo. The Fab Four are also matched here with fine British character actors like Norman Rossington (as their manager), and Wilfrid Brambell (as Paul’s incorrigible grandfather), who provide additional comic support and flavoring.

All these years later, “Night” remains a breathtaking musical ride. The Complete Monterey Pop Festival (1967)- It was 1967: the Summer of Love was in full swing, and the “Sergeant Pepper’s” album had just hit store shelves. This was a charged moment when you could sense that rock ‘n’ roll was evolving in daring new directions, fueled by psychedelic drugs, the sexual revolution, and a new generation finding its voice. Documentarian D.A. Pennebaker covers the Monterey Pop Festival like a blanket in this feature-length concert film- really the first-ever filming of everything and everyone at a large rock event, and showcasing landmark performances by immortals Jimi Hendrix, Otis Redding, Janis Joplin, Jefferson Airplane, and The Who, among others. Drinking in all the pungent sights and sounds makes you regret you weren’t actually there, but also makes you doubly glad that Pennebaker was.

A toe-tapping treat. Gimme Shelter (1970)- Master documentarians the Maysles Brothers were on hand to record the soon-to-be-infamous free Rolling Stones concert at Altamont, which along with the Manson murders, brought the decade of flower power and free love to a dark, ominous close. We see not only the fateful concert itself, but much of the planning leading up to the event. Given what the camera actually captured here, “Gimme Shelter” remains a uniquely powerful, often disturbing film document. Scenes of the advance work for the Altamont concert impart a queasy feeling of dread. Then, coverage of the concert itself juxtaposes fabulous renditions of Stones tunes with the emerging reality of a volatile situation just off-stage.

There, drugged-out Hell’s Angels bikers start beating audience members, causing one fatality. Jagger’s numbed expression as he later views the video playback of the incident is unforgettable. This fascinating, frightening film records a tumultuous moment in our popular culture, and a turning point in the history of rock. Elvis: That’s The Way It Is ((1971)- The king of ’50’s rock-n’-roll is still kicking in Denis Sanders’s rousing tribute, which finds Elvis at a crossroads. With the waning of his movie career allowing him to get back to live performing, Presley rehearses for his much ballyhooed Las Vegas opening, yukking it up backstage with his band, and traipsing around with his entourage until his big-night debut. Elvis still looks (and sounds) terrific in this docu-portrait of the Memphis legend’s bid for glitzy Vegas glory.

Beyond the force of his charisma and talent in full blossom, we get a glimpse of the star’s comical, playful side, which humanizes this larger-than-life entertainer. “Way” culminates in a predictably triumphant opening-night performance, with such luminaries as Cary Grant and Sammy Davis, Jr. in attendance. Elvis fans should be delighted, because “That’s the Way It Is” lends poignancy to this last moment when the King appeared at his very best. The Last Waltz (1978)- Continuing a tradition begun with his co-editing of “Woodstock” close to a decade earlier, Martin Scorsese captures “The Last Waltz” for posterity. This was The Band’s final 1976 tour, after a back-breaking sixteen years on the road. To mark the milestone as a celebration, not a wake, the group assembled a veritable rock hall-of-fame to join them, including Eric Clapton, Joni Mitchell, Bob Dylan, Van Morrison, Muddy Waters, Dr. John, and Neil Young.

The rest is music history. Often hailed as the greatest concert movie ever, it may just be. Robbie Robertson, the film’s producer and guiding light behind The Band, is charismatic off-stage, electric on. All the guest musicians sing and play at the top of their games. Highlights include Joni Mitchell’s “Coyote”, Waters’s earthy, soulful “Mannish Boy”, Dr. John’s dreamy “Such A Night”, and Clapton’s jaw-dropping guitar work on “Further On Up The Road”. Stop Making Sense (1984)- Filmed over the course of a three-day stint at Hollywood’s Pantages Theater, this concert documentary celebrates the inspired pop energy of New Wave pioneers Talking Heads- David Byrne, Chris Franz, Tina Weymouth, and Jerry Harrison- as they are joined onstage by a succession of phenomenal players, including keyboardist Bernie Worrell.

Director Jonathan Demme’s infectious first outing captures the ecstatic fervor of the Talking Heads at the very peak of their fame, but it is much more than a filmed performance. Working from an idea hatched by super-quirky frontman David Byrne, “Sense” opens with Byrne’s solo rendition of “Psycho Killer” (accompanying himself on boom-box) and builds, song by song and player by player, to a roof-raising climax with “Burning Down the House.” The result is an uplifting, concept-driven dance party that avoids all the clichés. Roy Orbison: Black and White Night (1991)- This star-studded 1987 concert by the groundbreaking rock-and-roll singer Roy Orbison, filmed at the Coconut Grove in downtown Los Angeles, features the falsetto-voiced pop star at the peak of his powers.

Joining Orbison onstage are Bruce Springsteen, Bonnie Raitt, Jackson Browne, and many others, singing gently rocking ballads like “Pretty Woman” and “Crying” in a rollicking hour of delightful, swinging collaboration. Originally aired on Showtime, “Night” evokes a 1940s nightclub environment complete with art-deco set design, gorgeous black-and-white photography, and Orbison’s trademark shades. But aside from the nostalgic, ever-inviting aesthetics, it is the musical performances that remain so compelling. Orbison sounds like he hasn’t lost a beat (or missed a note) since his Sun Records days, and his duets with Elvis Costello, K.D. Lang, Tom Waits, and producer T Bone Burnett feel warm and rich, rather than like a stale imitation of previous successes. Who else can croon “Only the Lonely” so hauntingly?

Festival Express (2003)- This intimate doc showcases a memorable 1970 rock tour which traversed Canada by train. Complementing the live performances and fly-on-the wall sequences of the tour are current interviews with surviving participants. The impressive line-up of musical talent includes Janis Joplin, Buddy Guy, The Band, and The Grateful Dead. This under-exposed performance film recreates the heady times of 1970, when the memory of Woodstock was still fresh. Grateful Dead fans in particular will enjoy seeing the late, great Jerry Garcia in his prime, Joplin breaks your heart offstage (and dazzles you on-), and you simply can’t go wrong with those other acts. “Festival Express” is a must-see for any true rock fan. Bob Dylan: No Direction Home (2005)- Martin Scorsese’s ambitious two-part documentary covers the enigmatic balladeer’s rise, focusing on Dylan’s artistic courage in shifting from folk to rock-infused songs in the mid-sixties, and his steadfast refusal to play a broader cultural role in these tumultuous times.

He wanted simply to make music, and let the music speak for itself. Scorsese fashions a masterful portrait of a pivotal crossroads in Dylan’s career, leading up to the serious 1966 motorcycle accident that signaled a prolonged hiatus from touring. This intimate, insightful film makes it clear that Dylan would likely have taken a break from public performances anyhow, as his mid-sixties tour in England was met with hostility every time the singer picked up an electric guitar, further straying from his sacred folk roots. “No Direction Home” constitutes a fascinating sixties time capsule, and a revealing meditation on artistic integrity and the pitfalls of fame. (It’s also a perfect companion piece to D.A. Pennebaker’s earlier Dylan profile- 1965’s “Don’t Look Back”.)

Neil Young: Heart Of Gold (2006)- In the fall of 2005, legendary rocker Neil Young debuted a suite of new songs, “Prairie Wind,” at Nashville’s historic Ryman Auditorium, former home of the Grand Ole Opry. This exquisite concert film captures Young performing these and a few older chestnuts with his pals, including Emmylou Harris, wife Peg, and a who’s who of country session players. Evocative backdrops, moody set lighting, and Jonathan Demme’s fluid camerawork only add to the experience. This lovely, deeply affecting music doc gets the red-carpet treatment from “Stop Making Sense” director Demme, who briefly introduces each of the players on their way to the show before literally zooming in on Young’s remarkable performance. Singing folk-country songs about mortality, empty nests, and aged parents, Young’s choppy rhythms and images of swaying Canadian cornfields harken back to his early ’70s work on “Harvest” and “Comes a Time.” It’s obvious he’s enjoying himself, and his between-song banter is tart, concise, and utterly charming. If you don’t come away from “Heart of Gold” humming, you better have your ears checked.

A final word on these films: they were all meant to be played loud. So crank it!

After a long stint on Madison Avenue, John Farr left to devote himself to spreading his love and passion for outstanding films. He’s following a Quixote-like quest to have people appreciate the stories and excellence of the world’s best movies, most of them now accessible on DVD, or even for downloading. After all, if our kids read literary classics to understand the tenor of a certain time and culture, why not do the same thing with great movies?

Greg Buchanan Gospel Harpist – Sponsored by the Lakeland Community Concert Association

August 15th, 2016

Greg Buchanan Gospel Harpist – Sponsored by the Lakeland Community Concert Association
Event on 2016-09-10 19:00:00
Greg is a world-class harpist whose aggressive style of playing usually redefines the listeners concept of performance on the harp. His superb musicianship combined with an enthusiastic attitude toward the Christian life has made him one of the most sought-after Christian performers in America for the past 27 years. In his early years, there seemed to be nothing Greg Buchanan could not do when it came to music. He was just three when his mother- a singer, dancer and Shakespearean actress- sat him on her lap and began teaching him piano. But the first harp player in the family was Gregs older sister Lucy. Greg watched her play, and at the age of nine, he decided the harp was for him. It wasnt long before Gregs tremendous music ability put him in the spotlight. As he entered and won harp competitions, his future seemed very bright at least musically. Naturally gifted to play the harp, he excelled and progressed quickly. As a young man, he spent four years in the United States Navy Band stationed in Washington, D.C. Following his military service, Greg entered the southern California music scene where he experienced the glamour of professional success. His personal life, however, was a dark paradox. At the age of 13, Greg had been introduced to alcohol. This addiction was now in full control and thrust Gregs life into the downward spiral of alcoholism, drug abuse. He dabbled in the occult and found himself in and out of mental hospitals and jails. In the fall of 1981, Greg left the music scene and entered college, determined to reconstruct the fibers of his life that had so quickly unraveled. During this time, a friend invited Greg off the streets of Hollywood to a Christian concert. Jesus Christ entered Gregs heart that night and the Holy Spirit began the process of repairing and healing the broken man who was so desperately searching for a new beginning. Greg readily gives God credit for everything he has today, and for bringing him from the depths of worldly living to the triumphant life he now lives. Part of Gods provision in Gregs life was blessing him with a wonderful wife, Becky. Married 25 years, and blessed with three precious children: Matthew 23, Erik, 21 and Bree, 18. Occasionally, Becky and the family brave the road to travel with Greg. Both Becky and Greg are natives of California. They enjoy living in southern California close to family. Greg enjoys the privilege of being one of the first harpists in the world to own and play the Electronic Acoustic Grand Harp developed and handcrafted by the Lyon and Healy harp manufacturers of Chicago. The technological enhancements of this newly introduced instrument take Gregs music into realms of expression unattainable with traditional acoustic harps. The instrument is a modified Salzedo Art Deco design, which was personalized to accommodate Gregs specific needs. During many concert performances, Greg also performs on a Celtic (Irish folk) harp and a Kin nor (lyre). The uniqueness of Gregs stylized playing has made him a popular guest at national and international workshops. Greg finds great fulfillment in being able to share not only his musical knowledge but also his personal walk of faith, thus offering great creative inspiration to those with whom he works. Gods calling continues to lead Greg to minister in churches, school assemblies, pastors and worship conferences, crusades, on television and many other venues. For the past 26 years, God has called Greg to a life of traveling to spread the Good News, to encourage pastors and to lead people into the presence of God through exciting worship and personal testimony. Churches in the largest cities and smallest of towns have invited Greg to minister. Each time, Gods Spirit moves! Greg is energized and encouraged by the people he encounters while touring. His prayer is that he will be used to encourage others through his witness and testimony. And, that as a result, the circle of Christian friendship and faith will continue to strengthen Gods people.
