Livin’ on a prayer

Way back in 1995 when I finished high school, I attended my first ever concert with brother Jason – Bon Jovi, playing at Lang Park stadium. Almost 20 years later and we were all back! If it looks like we’re

Muse

Right off the back of the YOW conference, I headed to the Entertainment Centre on Tuesday night to catch up with my old friends, Muse. I probably say it after every Muse concert (having seen them play four times now),

City & Colour

As often seems to be the case, there’s quite a number of bands touring in December/January that I’d love to go see play. I’ve managed to secure tickets to three concerts before the end of the year, the first of

Out and about

Muse

It’s fair to say that I’ve been to a number of concerts over the years, and though it’s hard to choose a single favourite, I’d definitely put the first Muse concert I saw very close to the top. So, when
