Countdown to Bonnaroo: 2 Days – Artist of the Day: Phish

5 Jun

I think everyone would agree that Phish has played a monumental role in both the music industry and festival circuit, and with a legion of fans all over the globe, it should be quite the special performance closing out Bonnaroo XI.  Slated to play two sets, it should be four hours of bliss on the farm as the festival comes to a close for another year.

I remember the first time seeing Phish was in 1996 at America West Arena in Phoenix (part of my DoYouHeartheMusic.com ticket stub background image) and how excited I was to finally see them live.  The last Phish show I saw was a decade ago, way too long but what is also making seeing them at Bonnaroo that much more special for me.

Countdown to Bonnaroo: 8 Days – Artist of the Day: Red Hot Chili Peppers

29 May

Newly minted Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees, the Red Hot Chili Peppers are not only riding the high of being honored as music royalty but also as the grandioso 2012 festival headliner, and well deserved.  I’ve been to a ton of concerts in my lifetime and I’ll continue to remember seeing RHCP live and what a fun show it was.  RHCP are one of those bands that every song they play is a hit that you’ve been listening to for years.  The only thing I expect is everything to be bigger and better on the big stage of Bonnaroo.  Night two is going to be awesome!

Countdown to Bonnaroo: 6 Days – Artist of the Day: Arcade Fire

3 Jun

Since winning a Grammy for Album of the Year with Suburbs, Arcade Fire has been spreading like a wildfire as headliners for just about every festival in 2011, an honor that is well deserved.  The first time I ever heard Arcade Fire was at VEGOOSE in 2005 after they had release Funeral (which was nominated for a Grammy) and I remember being impressed but not knowing too much.  This year at Bonnaroo I am well aware and can’t wait to see the performance which should be an epic one for sure.
