After experiencing YES performing in the round on a revolving stage in Fall 1978 in Memphis, I distinctly recall thinking that this was the best way to see any band larger than a quartet.

the Joe Bonamassa US tour commences July 26 in San Diego and heads east eventually to a three-night stand at Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium August 9- 11. Then Joe B lands in Europe beginning September 22, only to return to North America at the end of October to play through the end of November.
It is only fitting that Mick Jones, the British ex-pat who founded Foreigner more than four decades ago, should be the last man standing of the original band nearly two decades into the twenty-first century. With the myriad of changes in both music styles and the business itself over all that time since their 1976 […]
