Win A Ticket To Y&T @ Stage 48 On 4/5/2014

Poster - Y and T at Stage 48 - 2014

The Details: Y&T is without question a hurricane of Heavy Rock power and they have been entertaining the masses for forty years now and that deserves a round of applause for sure. I’ve been a fan since the album “Meanstreak” but it was only back in the early 2000’s that I had finally caught them live and I have to say that I have tried my damnedest to be on point ever since. That being said I was excited to find the band returning to NYC for a gig at Stage 48 and also to offer up a contest to our PiercingMetal Legions thanks to the fine folks in the marketing team at the venue. The band will bring along some local support for the show and you can learn how to participate in this contest by reading more below.

When and Where: Saturday, April 5th at Stage 48 (605 West 48th St. NYC)

To Participate: Without trying to sound insulting, I have long felt that the band Y&T were one of Hard Rock’s greatest secrets. They’re a band that when newbies come across them, they find themselves sold for life and with that in mind I want to make this an educational post as well as a fun one. For this contest please name me your three top Y&T albums (and that includes live releases but NO “Greatest Hits” packages) and tell me what about each album makes it so special in your musical mind. I will be picking from the submissions and replying to their comment directly. If you are one of the uninformed about the band just tell me three reasons why this show interests you the most and why you need to be in the room. Please enter your full name and an email address in the comment form since we will need that for list purposes and as all comments are moderated, I ask that you only enter once (no updates to comments will be honored). Bring it on or shall I say “Open Fire!!!!” LOL

Restrictions: All of the PiercingMetal contests are open to our loyal readers, Facebook Page likers and Twitter Followers but that being said we are still always looking for the newest names first so EVERYONE gets the chance to enjoy a show on the provider and our site. We never let on how many tickets we have so it’s always smart to submit something just in case it’s your lucky day. Based on the frequency of our contests we do keep track of the winner list but please be aware that if you had won something over the last couple of months of contests your chances are less likely for this one. Please note that “Guest” and “Anonymous” submissions are not eligible either.

  1. I am a die hard Y&T fan. Have seen them live 25 times.
    My favorite 3 albums are the first 3. A lot of us refer to these as “The Trilogy”
    EARTHSHAKER – This was the first release under the name Y&T. The band had released 2 albums as Yesterday & Today. Then had to change the name.
    BLACK TIGER – My absolute favorite studio album. My favorite song is on this “Forever”
    MEAN STREAK – Title track was the first video they released. Saw this and was hooked.
    The band still plays at least 2 songs off all these albums live. If you cant afford to get all 3.
    I would recommend Y&T -Yesterday & Today Live.

  2. My favorite 3 albums are:
    FACEMELTER – for the fact that this was Phil’s last album with the band and I love the song “I’m Coming Home.” RIP Phil. He was a class act!
    CONTAGIOUS – I don’t’ hear enough people give this album credit, but I love this album. If I’m in my car it’s one I definitely crank up.
    BLACK TIGER – I couldn’t pick one favorite song on this album, I love just about every song.

  3. Y&T have always been a band that is great live. I am not a musician so I cannot say who played what with precision or how the album was recorded. I chose these albums because of how each album made me feel or what comes to mind when I hear these songs. They say a song can leave a lasting memory so here are my choices. When it comes to Y&T albums my 3 favorites are: 1. Down for the count. It has a lot of great songs and is an underrated album. Songs like All American Boy, Anytime At All, and Face Like and Angel keep me hitting the replay button. 2. Ten. I traveled into NYC a lot back in the day and this CD was always in the car. Dave’s voice and songs like surrender, going off the deep end, ten lovers, and red hot and ready had me blasting the stereo and singing along so loud you could hear me coming a mile away. It also made the trip into the city seem a lot faster. My 3rd favorite album is Open fire. The song list on that album is impressive and they sound great live.

    1. Congratulations Laura, you have one a ticket to see the great Y&T at Stage 48 this Saturday. Please stay tuned to the comments and watch for one from me that lines out the details on how you claim it.

  4. First Y& T for me was Earthshaker. I was at ZigZags in Brooklyn ans Phil said I HAD to get this LP. One usually listened to what Phil said. Then came Black Toger and Mean Streak. That was the best trio by Y & T for me. First show:The Beacon in 1987
