“Rocktopia” @ The Broadway Theatre

“Rocktopia” is a new musical that melds Classical greats with Rock and Roll awesome. This limited run show features Cheap Trick’s Robin Zander from 4/23-4/29.

“Rocktopia” Begins @ The Broadway Theatre

A couple of months ago, I had the privilege to attend the Press Preview for an upcoming Broadway Rock Meets Classical performance called “ROCKTOPIA”. The experience was documented right here on PiercingMetal in an article that you can read by clicking on THIS LINK. I’m here now to announce to you all that the show is opening up in the next couple of days at The Broadway Theatre and you are not going to want to miss this one.

At the time of this writing I am NOT yet going to any of the performances myself but I am definitely interested in catching it at least once. I’d be curious to see how Pat Monahan of Train does with this presentation. Truth be told I’ve never really followed that particular band but I do love his voice overall so think the audience might be in for something wonderful. Considering its only a six week run, I will be listing a number of the performances on our Events Calendar so just click that text to launch it and peruse the show or shows that you want to attend. It’s a lot of entries to do but if I can list a whole gamut of “Springsteen On Broadway” dates, I can do no less for the folks in “Rocktopia”.

The Performers: Alex Alexander, Alyson Cambridge, Chloe Lowery, Henry Aronsen, Kimberly Nichole, Máiréad Nesbitt, Randall Craig Fleischer, Rob Evan, Tony Bruno and Tony Vincent.

Win A Ticket To See Robin Zander @ B.B. King’s On 2/5/2015

Poster - Robin Zander at BB Kings - 2015

The Details: I’ve been a fan of Cheap Trick’s Robin Zander since the first time I heard him singing on that legendary album “Live At Budokan”. The live recording was a juggernaut and while the band had been around for a few years already, this was my own introduction and beginning of my appreciation of his incredible style. I am not alone in this by any means. That being said, I am incredibly excited to announce that PiercingMetal’s first contest of 2015 comes care of the fine folks at B.B. King Blues Club for Robin’s performance on Thursday. According to the press release, Mr. Zander will be doing a load of Cheap Trick hits along with numerous Classic Rock favorites that are sure to set the room on end. Having caught this show back in 2013 I can tell you quite honestly that this is going to be a really great show. Read more below on how to participate.

PiercingMetal’s “Best Of” 2013: The Concerts

At this point in time do I really need to say that I see a lot of concerts during the course of the year? I hope not because this one of the key factors that makes up my daily life as founder of the PiercingMetal brand. That said ?I wanted to once again use the Official Blog for the site to highlight a number of the shows that I attended during 2013 that I felt were the absolute best experiences. They’re not really in order of impact or importance but there are a few at the top that did hit me the hardest. Here we go.

1. Metallica @ The Apollo Theater: Thrashing like a maniac in Harlem? Yeah that happened. Classic set and free beer for the whole show. No complaints here.

2. Kamelot @ Stage 48: Returning to the headlining stage with Delain as support and Eklipse. This was a righteous show for sure. My belief in this band was reinforced yet again. I was not surprised in this.

3. Eddie Trunk 30th Anniversary Bash: Another one that I was super fortunate to participate in because an all-star jam with members of KISS, Overkill, Twisted Sister, Accept, Anthrax, Stryper, Guns n Roses and so many more is just impossible to qualify as being “an okay time”. This was insanity.

4. Trans-Siberian Orchestra @ Prudential Center: The final go round for the “Lost Christmas Eve” tour premise. Always a bombastic spectacle that needs seeing for believing.

5. Rock Allegiance Tour w/Volbeat & HIM @ Williamsburg Park: Two excellent main acts and solid support from All That Remains. Whew. Exciting for Brooklyn and you know how we roll in this borough.
