Like Clockwork

Queens Of The Stone Age rocked The Fillmore, bringing new music with their 6th studio album "Like Clockwork". QOSA have not had an album since 2007 so this new release was not only big for fans but for front man Josh Homme and the band as well. Like Clockwork has received critical acclaim reaching number 2 in the UK charts and number 1 on the Billboard 200. In 2010 singer Homme suffered serious complications from a knee surgery and was looking at the end of the band. But members of the band supported Homme and got him back in the studio to record this 6th album. Looks like Queens Of The Stone Age are back on track, and the music is nothing short of awesome. Check out band live and check out the new album, you wont be disappointed.

Delta Machine Launches from Detroit

Depeche Mode one of Modern/New Wave's biggest bands since 1980, kicks off a world tour for their new album Delta Machine right here in Michigan. Delta Machine is the bands 13th studio album and it sounds great, and even better live. Young and old fans came out Thursday night to witness a very entertaining show, which was opened by the band Bat For Lashes who also had an amazing sound. Check out the new album and check out some picks from Thursdays show.

Kid Rock Says Goodbye

After seeing the first and last two shows of the eight Kid Rock "Best Night Ever Concerts" I realized that Rock has not missed a beat as a showman. He has as much energy as he had back around when Devil Without A Cause came out if not more. Last night he did not let up as it was the closing show here in Detroit, and was as pumped up as the first show. Throughout all 8 shows at DTE Kid was happy to see fans young and old, and even stated that if the new fans were not familiar with his old stuff he would "ease them into it" followed by a jump in the air and yelling "you never met a mother(expletive) quite like me!!" Best Night Ever has to go down as one of the best concerts ever, and the $20 ticket price is just the start. Check out photos from the last two shows.
