Rob the Concert Guy

I love live music and will pretty much go to just about any concert. I've made a lot of friends because of my willingness to put that extra ticket to good use. I've been to hundreds of shows and finally I decided I should start writing about them. Better late than never I guess.

Jessie Murph – Boston – March 4, 2023

Well, I went to another concert where I really had no idea what the hell was going on. Saturday, March 4, 2023, I took my daughter to the Paradise Rock Club in good ole Boston to see Jessie Murph. Had I ever heard of her before, or did I know any of her songs? NOPE! … Continue reading

Anthrax – February 3, 2023

Back in 2003 when I saw Anthrax in Providence, RI there were maybe a hundred people at a small club. John Bush was their singer at the time, and the show kicked ass for the few of us who were there to see it. But clearly, not a big draw in those days for some … Continue reading

Ringo Starr

September 23, 2022 So two legends in one week? Yup! First it was Dave Mustaine (Megadeth) and then, no big deal, a BEATLE!! On September 23, 2022 I took my mom to see living legend Ringo Starr (and his All Starr Band) at the Hartford Healthcare Amphitheater in Bridgeport, CT. I figured it would be … Continue reading


September 18, 2022 – Mansfield, MA Two living legends in the same week? Hell yes!! Let’s start with the first. Dave Mustaine. The man! Megadeth!! On Sunday September 18, 2022 (yes I’m a bit late writing this, but life is busy) I had the pleasure of seeing Megadeth. They put on a great 50-minute set. … Continue reading

Shinedown – w/ Jelly Roll and John Harvie

September 13, 2022 – Mansfield, MA I have a friend who has seen Shinedown about 20 times and I hadn’t seen them at all prior to this night, so I figured, what the hell? The show started with some dude named John Harvie. I will say, he sucked! Sure, it’s my opinion, but I’ll stand … Continue reading

Ghost w/ Mastodon and Spirtbox

September 12, 2022 Providence, RI Ghost was pretty sweet! In case you don’t know, they’re a Swedish rock band (some say metal band, but I disagree) and they showed up for a nice Monday night treat at the Providence Civic Center (call it what you will). They’re shtick is that you don’t know who they … Continue reading

Lorde – August 25, 2022

What can I say? She was better than I expected! I took my 14 year old daughter to her first show and she loved it. But first, let’s talk about the opener. “Jim-E Stack.” I guess if I was single and at a nightclub and wanting to dance this guy would be ok. But as … Continue reading

Rob Zombie

July 30, 2022 – Xfinity Center (aka Great Woods!), Mansfield, MA                 I’ll keep this one short(ish). Rob Zombie is a friggin’ beast! The dude is 57 years old, he’s been rocking for forever, but he shows no signs of slowing down. I hadn’t even considered going to see him live, but when my son … Continue reading


w/The Pretty Reckless, The Warning, and Lilith Czar July 20, 2022 @ Hartford Healthcare Amphitheater Man, oh man was this a treat! First let me say, this was my first time at this venue and it’s a fantastic venue! Kudos to the mastermind behind this. Former baseball stadium converted into a beautiful amphitheater. I’ll be … Continue reading

Jason Aldean – July 16, 2022

(With Gabby Barrett & John Morgan) Hartford, CT Xfinity Theatre Yep. So, I did it. I went to my first country show. I decided to check out Jason Aldean on his Rock and Roll Cowboy tour. Having recently gone to my first hip-hop show, I figured what the hell, right? This time, it was me … Continue reading
