Cliff Yeo for LAMC Productions – Slash and Axl Rose of Guns N
Guns N’ Roses visits Changi Exhibition Centre in Singapore Feb. 25.
Guns N’ Roses @ Slane Castle in Dublin, Ireland, May 27 – “Their music might be big, bloated and debauched alpha male [rock], but it’s undeniably effective and entertaining. … The sight of Axl Rose and Slash performing side by side is powerful and reaffirming.” – Eamon Sweeney / Independent.ie
New Kids On The Block @ Save Mart Center in Fresno, Calif., May 31 – “On concept alone, an NKOTB show at this point shouldn’t work as well as it does. From the moment the show starts, it’s obvious that this isn’t a boy band any more, even if they raise up from under the stage in a boy-band pose-off stance.” – Joshua Tehee / The Fresno Bee
Bjork @ Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles, Calif., May 30 – “The concert was nothing short of breathtaking, as the Icelandic vocalist worked alongside 30-plus cellists, bassists, violinist and violists in two sets of daringly original and emotional music for the sold-out crowd.” – Jim Harrington / The Mercury News
Julian Bajsel – Odesza
Odesza rocks Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Morrison, Calif., May 27.
Odesza @ Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Morrison, Colo., May 27 – “The clarity of Odesza’s music in the many facets of life it flows into made their Red Rocks performance transcendental in a sense. … But life isn’t that simple. Odesza didn’t just put on a performance, they reminded us how good it feels to live in the moment.” – Kori Hazel / 303 Magazine
Eric Church @ Scottrade Center in St. Louis, Mo., May 14 – “Church took the stage [at] about 8:35 p.m. and for the next 3½ hours wowed the crowd. … Church made the night look and sound easy, effortlessly going from song to song with enough crowd banter to keep things moving.” – Amanda St. Amand / St. LouisPost-Dispatch
