CONCERT REVIEW: Billy Joel
 

By Mike Sorensen

ST. LOUIS - Busch Stadium was filled with the roars of the crowd, flies, swats and massive hits all night long.

Unfortunately for local fans, the Cardinals were out of town.

Billy Joel, on the other hand, had his massive stage show set up in left-center field and played to a sold-out crowd.

QUINCY - There aren't many events where the whole family -- four-legged, furry members included -- is welcome, which is why the Quincy Humane Society's Mutt Strut is a big draw for pet lovers.

CONCERT REVIEW: Guns N' Roses
 

By MIKE SORENSEN

ST. LOUIS - “Seems like just yesterday we were here!” came the booming voice from the public address system, generating a roar from the crowd at the Dome in St. Louis.

Everyone was in on the joke – 26 years ago was the "yesterday" being referenced.

It's a date known well to fans and stars alike.

But that was in the past, and Thursday night, Guns N' Roses showed that's where they were going to keep it. And the crowd answered in a like fashion, welcoming back Axl, Slash, Duff and all their friends.

CONCERT REVIEW: Ghost and Iron Maiden
 

By MIKE SORENSEN

On the final leg of its “Book of Souls” world tour, Iron Maiden dropped in for back-to-back stops in the Show-Me state.

Both stops included opening sets from Swedish rockers Ghost.

While the set-lists were the same, and with only a few hundred miles between them, the shows couldn't have been more different.

First up, on Tuesday, July 11, was the show at the Sprint Center in Kansas City. After the intonations of “Miserere mei, Deus” resonating throughout the arena, Ghost took the stage with its own form of a prayer meeting.

LIVING THE DREAM

Local Q Writer

When Jake McVey graduated from high school, he had dreams of moving to Nashville and becoming a country music star.

His parents, however, suggested that he find something else that he enjoyed.

He eventually did find something — building guitars — but he never lost sight of his goal.

McVey, who will be performing in Quincy this weekend, has taken a break from guitar building to focus more on his music. However, he built almost every guitar he now plays on stage.

Scream for me, Chicago!

The legendary battle-cry roared through the United Center. On a cold and rainy April night, visions of Mayan terrors were splashed across the façade of the Madhouse on Madison as Iron Maiden brought their “Book of Souls” world tour to Chicago.
