The term "Living Legend" is too often thrown around, but when you are playing on the 30th anniversary of your first show, "Smokin'" Joe Bonamassa is just that. A career that saw him take the stage at age 12 playing for the price of admission, to performing and touring the world with over 150 shows a year. You understand why this tour is called "Always on the Road".

Joe's musical influence extends beyond the live experience. He proudly supports his "Keeping The Blues Alive Foundation" through all his live shows.

Having released over 20 #1 albums, it's difficult to pick "favourites" to play every night...

Being a veteran in the heavy metal game, Chelsea Grin is no stranger to bringing the pain.
From the very first moment they stepped on stage, Chelsea Grin had command of the audience for over an hour. With reinvented vocalist, Tom Barber, the band looked stronger than ever, bringing their new songs to the mix. What had the audience enthralled was the fact that Chelsea Grin showed appreciation to their old material, bringing back classics that we all know such as "Lifeless" and "Cheyne Stokes", along while playing their new bangers...

Having never heard of Left Behind before walking into this gig, I was taken back by how well Left Behind was able to encapsulate their audience, bringing the ultimate heavy experience.
Although they may have played first, Left Behind gave us a performance that was of headliners. With brutal vocals, tight guitars, and slamming drums, the band crushed it, leaving a mark on not only me, but Grand Rapids as a whole. Once the pit opened, it was game over.

The lights go from Blue to straight Black as the show is about to start. You’re barely able to make out a figure coming on to the stage when a solitary a red light begins to shine down on him.
You hear his guitar start to play the intro to "As It Was". The crowd stays quiet and just takes in this haunting melody of the beautiful song. The rest of the band comes out to finish the song with him.
The second song, "Dinner & Diatribes" ignites the crowd. Everyone is on their feet sing along. The band behind Hozier are dancing around...

Dayglow may be new but this upcoming Indie band who is gaining popularity very fast!
Following the release of their latest single and music video for "Nicknames", Dayglow is currently on tour as an opener for Coin from October to November.
Realizing the importance of having fun doing what they are doing, Dayglow’s positive music style shines through while they perform on stage. They are definitely a band to watch. Lead singer, Sloan Struble, just has a way with their fans when he performs. Additionally, the whole band just seemed to have fun while playing on stage. Everyone had smiles on their faces and loved making a connection with their fans as they play. It wasn’t lost on the crowd as more than half of them sang...

Matt and Kim

Matt and Kim brought their tour to Chicago as they celebrate the Tenth Anniversary of "GRAND", which is arguably one of their best albums and one of my personal favorites.
Taking the stage, the crowd went insane! Matt and Kim came out to the audio of AC/DC Fight part from the song TNT. Matt went to the edge and started throwing some t-shirts out into the crowd, winding them up even more. He headed to his keyboard, which was right next to Kim's drum set, and they began to play "Daylight".
During the second song Kim came out from behind her drum set and started dancing while drinking. From her energy, you would never know that Kim has been doing this tour with a torn ACL. She just kicks ass!
You soon realize why this is an 18+ show. Matt and Kim started talking about their sex lives. It was amazing...

Beach Goons are a trio currently opening for Matt and Kim as they tour in support of the 10 year anniversary of the Grand album.
Unfortunately, their set was cut very short due to one of the guitarists strings breaking but before they left the stage, they did a few Weezer covers that the crowd was really getting into and singing along with the band.
Sadly, the lighting for the set could have been a lot better. It was very...
