Win Tix To See Y&T In NYC On 3/22/2013

Poster - Y&T at Stage 48 - 2014

The Scoop: Y&T are one of the best Hard Rock bands in history if you ask me, and even though I’ve not followed them as long as some of my friends have, there has never been a time where I caught them in action and didn’t enjoy the presentation. Over the years there’s been some lineup changes but the songs have remained powerful, exciting and always in your face. Dave Meniketti still has the pipes and plays that guitar like it’s nobody’s business. That makes me glad to let you know that thanks to the fine folks who book the new Stage 48 club, some of the PiercingMetal readers are going to get to enjoy the show for free. Cool right?

If you’ve seen Y&T before just let me know how much the band means to you and a couple of quick thoughts about your experience with them or the music. If you have never seen the band before, let me know why you are so curious to do so and what you hope to take back from the show. Fair enough? I hope so.

  1. Cheers Ken for having the contest outside facebook and giving everyone a fair chance. I’ve seen Y&T once and was blown away by the passion with which Dave Meniketti sings and plays the guitar. It comes natural to him, he was definitely born to do this. He is also a down to earth person with no rock star attitude. Y&T is great.

    1. Congratulations Stefan you have won a ticket for Friday’s Y&T show. It’s sure to be a good time. Glad you like our move to the site blog for the contests, Facebook was starting to limit the effectiveness. Please stay tuned to the comments for the full details on how to claim your ticket.

  2. Best Band in the land. I have traveled to Califorina 3 times.
    Germany & Holland to see them. Not to mention several states in the U.S.
    Never miss them in NYC. Can”t Wait

    1. Sheesh Bill that is some traveling to support a band and that makes me say congratulations as you have won a ticket for the show on Friday. Please watch for a closing comment from me with the details on how you claim this.

  3. Y&T have been a band that I have loved for many years. Every show I have been to rocks and the band always makes you feel like a friend rather than a fan. At a BB King show Phil came over to my sister and I and thanked us for rocking out. I couldn’t believe it but it goes to show how much the band thinks of their fans.
    Also the fans are a great bunch of people as well. They have meet-ups before the show and are fun to talk to. For those of you who have never seen a Y&T show you have to go. You will not regret it!

    1. I have to agree with you Laura, quite the connection between band and fan and Phil Kennemore was one in a million (Rest In Peace). With that I say congratulations as you have won a ticket for the show on Friday. Please stay tuned to the comments for the details.

  4. To me Y&T are one of the greatest yet underated hard rock bands of all time. I saw them once at BB Kings years ago and would love to see them again. One line from their song “Contagious” always sticks with me when it comes to having to rise up in any challenging situation in life and that is “dont hesitate when the feelings right, forget about it shake and roll the dice”. That line right there gives me that extra shot of confidence I may be seeking. That is my favorite song by them and they did not play it last time I saw them. Im hoping it will be in the set this Friday.

If you haven’t…well, what are you waiting for? Dave Meniketti is a soulful singer and guitar player who in my opinion, is one of the best there is. Y&T treats their fans like friends, whether its chatting online with
