Bluesfest rumours

Recommended Posts

I'm at least looking forward to Weird Al.  My cynical attitude towards him has shifted to intrigue.  


Still hoping for Tom Petty.  He's wide open...no dates scheduled at all!


Is there any point in guessing shitty pop and new country acts?

just taking the piss, really- first time I saw that image I didn't even notice it said "Pipers"



 A close friend of mine (also a piper) who was a reserve player for the Canadian band, Enter The Haggis has met Red Hot Chilli Pipers a few times dragged me out to a show in Toronto a couple years back. Entertaining band (depends which one you see I suppose). Serious amount of energy, but family type show overall, but still some freaks in attendance. Basically, worth checking out if you enjoy the pipes and they happen to play a fest you're at.

Brian Wilson and Rodriguez just announced a tour that puts them in the right place at the right time, although days off are scarce. I also note that Rodriguez isn't playing the lone Canadian date, which makes me think there might be border issues:

June 19 San Diego, CA—Humphrey’s Concerts by the Bay

June 20 Los Angeles, CA—The Greek Theatre

June 23 Austin, TX—Frank Erwin Center

June 24 Dallas, TX—Verizon Theatre at Grand Prairie

June 26 Atlanta, GA—Fox Theatre

June 27 Nashville, TN—Carl Black Chevy Woods Amphitheater

June 29 Philadelphia, PA—The Mann Center for the Performing Arts

June 30 Wantagh, NY—Nikon at Jones Beach Theater

July 1 Holmdel, NJ—PNC Bank Arts Center

July 2 Boston, MA—Blue Hills Bank Pavilion

July 4 Toronto, ON—Sony Center*

July 5 Detroit, MI—Fox Theatre

July 8 Denver, CO—1STBANK Center
