Photos + Review: Kid Rock @ Air Canada Centre

Photos by: Joanna Glezakos –  Review by: Adam Harrison – Often the advice is given to young artists to focus their efforts on one interest as to not dilute their brand.

Photos + Review: Marilyn Manson @ Rebel

Concert Review: Evanescence @ Sony Centre

By: Adam Harrison – It’s been more than six years since we’ve last heard from the gothic hard rock band, Evanescence, but they can’t be accused of not mixing things up as their fourth album, Synthesis, and their current tour features an entire symphony orchestra.

Concert Review: Guns N’ Roses @ Air Canada Centre

By: Curtis Sindrey – Guns N’ Roses sent the Air Canada Centre to paradise city last night with a three-hour marathon performance in Toronto.

By: Adam Harrison – It was like being at the Teen Choice Awards inside Toronto’s Air Canada Centre on October 25th with the amount of youthful screams directed at Pete Wentz, Patrick Stump and the boys from Fall Out Boy.
