Friday's Rockin' Roundup - Veteran's Day Edition

This Wednesday, November 11, is Veteran’s Day here in the US. Every year, I like to take a moment to reflect on our veterans and pay them the proper respect they deserve. Anyone who has read this blog with any regularity knows how I support those that fight to defend our freedoms. Whatever your stance is on war, you still have to give your thoughts and prayers to the soldiers that are fighting them.

This Veteran’s Day, take a minute to say thank you to a local vet. Buy him/her a beer. Shake their hand. Say thanks for all you do/did. If they want to share their war stories, take five minutes to listen to one (they are usually very entertaining). If nothing else, just take a moment to remember our vets and marvel at all they have done for this country, both past and present.

Here’s what rock this week:

U2 Sets Concert Attendance Record
I can’t even fathom what it would be like to play in front of more than 97,000 fans. Imagine the traffic getting out of that concert!

Papa Roach Adds More Fall Dates
Papa Roach are extending their current tour with Jet, and will be doing some headlining dates with Shinedown. Papa Roach and Shinedown? Now that’s a great double bill. Unfortunately, no shows near me…yet. I’ll be keeping my eyes and ears open for updates.

Pearl Jam’s Last Night At The Spectrum
One fan’s detailed review of the amazing show that closed the spectrum. If you like my concert reviews, you are going to enjoy reading this.

Springsteen To Perform Both The Wild… And The River At MSG
2 words. Holy Crap!
