3 Doors Down will perform several hits for free for all in attendance as a part of the Fox & Friends “All-American Summer Concert Series” for 2018. This is a great way to start your day and enjoy some awesome live music and tasty BBQ eats. As this event is super early, I suggest a timely arrival to get the best possible space.
All-American Summer Concert Schedule has released their rundown of the free concerts that will be taking place on the FOX News Plaza on 48th Street just off the Avenue Of The Americas and its a wide gamut of stellar performers. Not only are these performances free of charge but they also serve up some BBQ ribs and chicken (unless I’m mistaken). There might even be beer which considering the time of the day that these take place is kind of weird but here is the list of shows for you to begin marking down as interest items on your mobile device of choice or one of those handy dandy day planners that use pen and paper. I think its awesome that they do this kind of thing and wish there were more events like this to share with you

PiercingMetal Thoughts: As you might have noticed. There are not too many of the Heavy Rock and Metal artists this time around. That’s bound to happen since we live in a Pop Music world where the refurbished “American Idol” is airing again alongside the more dominating “The Voice”. Despite my efforts to be a part of more of these special showcases over the last couple of years I’ve only managed to catch the one that the legendary Alice Cooper did a few years ago. As they are free, its open to the general public and some folks get there when the rooster crows. Also everyone records every moment of them for their Facebook, Instagram and whatever the hell else they opt to chronicle their world on so space is very limited. If you come in as a civilian and are among the crowd no one stops you from snapping/shooting video. Even if you decide to blog about it or post your pictures to a branded account like I would do. Now, folks in the unaware should know that these events start super early in the morning which is not always an easy thing for me if I’ve been at a late ending concert or event the night before. Some friends of mine go to these concerts right before their regular workday and I guess its pretty safe to use the excuse that the MTA caused you to be late since their overall services suck so bad these days. Oh come on now, you know I am right about that. So let close this up by asking you which shows you find most interesting and that you would like to attend. You can share your scoop down in the comments section below. Sure there are only a handful that would be potentially documented on this site but you are not going to be shamed for finding interest in the others. I like seeing different stuff myself when I can work it out. Also, be aware that while I will be listing the most topical ones for our readership on our Events Calendar, the whole kit and kaboodle will be listed on The Chronicles Of Piercing Ken Calendar. Ciao for now.
Is it just me or do some tours hit your radar and you sit wondering how the powers that be would think that it would work. Oh I’m not talking about this latest bit of news from 3 Doors Down who are teaming up with Collective Soul for the “Rock and Roll Express Tour” with support from Soul Asylum because all three of these bands seem to have come from the same musical menu and are a lock when put in the same place. Check out the full press release and dates and know that I’ll be back with some closing editorial.

Formed back in 1996, the band Three Doors Down became a staple of Radio Hard Rock thanks to their debut album “The Better Life” which hit the radio waves in 2000 and delivered tracks such as “Kryptonite” and “Loser”. These songs also became the staples in far too many to count cover bands sets and they remain as such to this very day. Yesterday I received some press about a summer tour that is sure going to be hot with the Rock as the band teams up with Seether. Check out the Official Press Copy below and then we can discuss a little further.
The Press Release: Nashville, TN — 3 Doors Down has announced the band’s Summer touring plans will feature a joint run with Seether for more than a dozen dates, as well as the selection of Theory of a Deadman or Collective Soul as support in markets where Seether is not appearing. Prior to the tour, the band will be in the studio recording a new album with multi-platinum hit record producer Matt Wallace. 3 Doors Down singer Brad Arnold shares, “We’re excited to be heading in to the studio with Matt to make a new 3 Doors Down record! We can’t wait to get some of these new songs we’ve been playing live put to tape. This is shaping up to be our best album yet!” Continue reading 3 Doors Down & Seether Unite For Summer 2015 Tour→
