Unless you’ve been living under a rock or just not paying attention to the kind of stuff that we’ve been putting out there, you know full well that we love the live concert scene here at the PiercingMetal Media Command HQ very, very much. We not only list about a thousand events on our popular calendar every year (seen HERE so please bookmark it) but we also end up attending about a hundred shows as well for the purposes of bringing you into the moment with a story or photo gallery to spark your own interest in bands you’ve known about or ones that you need to know about. Just a short time ago, the fine folks at Live Nation unveiled some awesome news. Check it out.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: This is a pretty sweet deal when you consider the price of tickets nowadays. So many shows are untouchable at the end of the day and it makes me hate the slimy scalpers and equally shifty ticket resale brokers all the more. From this list of venues, my “turf” for media stuff falls to Holmdel’s PNC Bank Arts Center and Wantaugh’s Northwell Health at Jones Beach Theater but at the time of this alert, I don’t know what shows I am putting in for as a member of the Music Scribes of The East Coast Territory (oh and before you ask that is by no means an official association, its every outlet for themselves out there). Offhand from the artists mentioned I am most interested in Alice In Chains, Behemoth, Korn, Slipknot and Volbeat but truth be told if I am free on the night and can work out my coverage needs I am game to go anywhere to see anyone. I love the live concert scene and living in the moment with my fellow fans. So what you should do is keep an eye on the announcements and especially our Regional Listings so you can participate in some really awesome shows. I’ve got nothing else so see you later on since you know I always have more coming to the website. Cheers.
