Metallica @ Hardwired . . . to Self-Destruct, however, Metallica capably demonstrated that it can still be a force to be reckoned with when it stops overthinking the process and simply gets on with the business of being the Metallica that everyone wants Metallica to be.” – Ben Rayner / Toronto Star

Dolly Parton @ Julio Diaz / Pensacola News Journal

Roger Hodgson @

Henry Rollins @ – “He hit the stage at 8:06 p.m. and didn’t stop talking. He didn’t stop talking for two and a half hours. Straight. No drinking water, no notes, no lengthy pauses. It was truly amazing, and that’s not even considering the weight of his words.” – Melissa Cynova / PlayBack:stl
