PiercingMetal Thoughts: Hey I don’t have much to add here about this one but suggest that you readers just get on out and SUPPORT LIVE MUSIC!!!! Mark down some dates and see some shows with your friends or family if they like to do that sort of thing. This is one of my favorite activities to do and I can’t wait to see a whole bunch of these tours over the coming months. Act now before its too late and let’s face it – this deal is pretty sweet. It will leave you extra money for band merchandise and concessions and as I close this one up I wonder what you all are thinking about the National Concert Week initiative. Chime in down below in the comments section.
