I’ve always noticed that the best concerts roll out in the fall. It must have something to do all of the students returning back to town with fatter bellies funded by beer and fatter wallets financed by parents. Nevertheless, it’s still summer and there’s some great shows coming up soon. (more)
The Boston Red Sox will battle the Baltimore Orioles for three games starting Friday night. Head out to Fenway Park on September 21-23 to see Dustin Pedroia and the rest of the Red Sox take on their division-rivals. The Orioles are currently fighting with the New York Yankees for first place in the division. As the Orioles haven’t made the playoffs since 1997, this is an important game for them. Boston is out of the playoff hunt but is positioned to play a spoiler in the series. (more)
As the summer winds down, the number of concerts put on at outdoor amphitheaters does too. While that means the show must go on rain or shine, it does muster up a little sadness about having to be cooped up indoors for a concert for the next six months. But no need to sink into hibernation just yet, the Comcast Center’s grand finale concert on September 25th will be put on by none other than country’s finest- Toby Keith.
Although he’s been on tour for most of the last three months, Keith is not ready to call the summer quits yet- his American Ride tour wraps up on October 15th in Oklahoma after playing fourteen dates up the East Coast. Celebrating his eighth consecutive year at the “Ford Truck Man”, Ford presented this American Ride concert, Keith playing even bigger venues and more locations throughout the US than he did in 2009. For his first return to Massachusetts since hosting this year’s Boston Pops 4th of July Spectacular, which drew more than a half-million Americans in person and millions more to the telecast, Toby Keith will be promoting his upcoming album- the 15th full-length studio album of his career- titled Bullets in the Gun.
Available as a Deluxe Edition, Bullets In The Gun will be released Oct. 5, with four live tracks in addition to the standard album. The four songs, recorded during the impromptu “Incognito Bandito” show at the Fillmore in New York City, are Johnny Paycheck’s “11 Months And 29 Days,” Waylon Jennings’ “I’ve Been A Long Time Leaving (But I’ll Be A Long Time Gone),” Roger Miller’s “Chug-A-Lug” and Gordon Lightfoot’s “Sundown”. Keith also took part in co-producing and writing all 10 new songs. Toby also wrote two songs by himself, including the lead single “Trailerhood,” which is moving quickly to the top of the charts.
With the end of the summer concert schedule coming to a close, Mansfield’s Comcast Center is by no means slowing down its big name lineup. Beginning next week, the Comcast Center will host the Jonas Brothers for a two night extravaganza featuring their Camp Rock co-star Demi Lovato for the first night, August 25th. The Jonas Brothers have broken out of the boy-band brand by proving themselves to be a close-knit threesome of song-writing brothers that emulates a modern day Beatle-mania (with shrieking tweens and all) while conquering the television world with a hit fictional sitcom “JONAS” and the summer spinoff of High School Musical, Camp Rock. Kevin, Joe and Nick Jonas have even made names for themselves individually, one getting married and one branching out to form his own rock band. Paul McCartney himself even recently invited the Jonas Brothers to cover a Beatles song at the White House, performing “Drive My Car”. Their headlining tour will be a sign of everything the Jonas Brothers have accomplished in the five-year span of their career while reflecting on the limitless future that lies ahead of them.
One of the most sought after live bands in the country, the Rascal Flatts are among the largest grossing touring groups in the music industry- well known for their live shows that been known to weave special effects, video and pyrotechnic into their ever-changing set lists. Over the course of their ten-year career, the Rascal Flatts have taken country music and made it their own, creating a more accessible image and sound to the genre we so fondly refer to as country. Releasing Greatest Hits Volume 1 in the fall of 2008, wrapping up with their latest hit cover song, “Life is a Highway” and a second greatest hits two-disc collection in October 2009 featuring a live disc, the Rascal Flatts have come full circle in ten years, reflecting on their success while refusing to take a backseat in the country world. The band has been touring all summer and will be wrapping up their tour with a sold out show at the Comcast on September 19th. 15 of the 18 dates left of their amphitheater tour are already sold out.
