The mighty Pearl Jam arrived in Dallas, 11/15/2013 to play the sold out show at The American Airlines Center. Headlining their latest album “Lightning Bolt,” Pearl Jam came to make some noise.

Pearl Jam, a band who hadn’t seen Dallas in over 10 years, knew they had a big performance ahead of them. Opening up the show with “Pendulum”, a track off the band’s late...

Blink 182 At The Red Bull Soundstage Concert Review And Encore (Video)

Blink 182

Yet what shouldn't be overlooked is that this windfall was very much earned. He might be known as 'Chris Mann from The Voice' to the world, but he's established himself as a legitimate artist who doesn't need the reality TV label. H...
