Christina Aguilera and Pussycat Dolls

Written by
As if the fans did not get their fill from the Pussycat Dolls, Christina Aguilera’s “Back to Basics” show was nothing short of a spectacular climax to the evening’s event. Christina entered with class standing atop a lighted stairwell, dressed in white, before being joined by a host of talented…
Primus was off to a great start after opening with my favorite song, "To defy the Laws of Tradition" - the first track off of Frizzle Fry. They then played "American Life" from their sophomore album Sailing the Seas of Cheese, which was a bit of a refresher since up…

Porcupine Tree - Like Fine Wine

Written by
The obvious diversity of the crowd attests to the nature of Porcupine Tree’s musical roots and the type of songs they create.

As Live played on, fans reacted with a sea of waving arms while singing along with most of the bands songs. Live’s successful formula of - now we’re quiet – NOW WE’RE LOUD – ssshhh...we’re quiet again – NOW WE’RE LOUD AGAIN – wait, we’re bringing it down again, proved…
