PiercingMetal Thoughts: I’ve got to admit that its nice to be seeing the touring updates once again and one can only hope that nothing suddenly goes South and finds wave after wave of cancellations being announced again. So believe it or not I’ve never seen GNR in concert before and that even surprises me since I was listening to them way before most of my friends were. It never seemed to be in the cards back in the heyday and now its just a wee pricey an adventure to undertake but let’s see if I can finally cross them off my bucket list with this go round. I’d love to see the MetLife Stadium show since the only other “close” date would be in Atlantic City and well, that’s a bit of a hike for me from our beautiful Brooklyn HQ. I am also very psyched to see Mammoth WVH as big things seem to be happening for the only son of the late, great Edward Van Halen. Okay, that’s all I have about this one so you kind readers can chime in down below and let me know what you think. Judging by the emails flowing into the queue this morning, I will be saying “see you next time” quite a bit today ;p – Stay tuned for more.

New York City’s Irving Plaza Reveals 2021-2022 Events

irving plaza logo

Day after day and week after week the world around us is slowly beginning to resemble something closer to normal. Many are vaccinated and the requirements about masks in open spaces along with some inside spaces has changed. These changes find venues being prepped and shows being booked and a short time ago we saw this announcement on the Irving Plaza Facebook Page. Take a look.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: As you can see there is a little something for everyone here and we’ve got some traditional Rock, some Punk, some Metal and a whole lengthy list of artists from wide-scoping genres that we just don’t follow during the course of the day. I’m going to being populating our trusty Events Calendar with the most relevant listings to our audience and I hope that the Gramercy Theatre makes a post like this one soon as well. I will say that I miss both of these places very much and look forward to being inside their confines once more being blasted to the walls by some incendiary talent. I know that I’d also love to be getting back into doing the Giveaways once again as we haven’t since November of 2019. What do you readers think about this initial list? Anything spark your interest right off the bat? Anything that you want them to feature at the venue? Use the comments down below to make your voices heard.
