Well, folks, it’s time again to turn your attention towards the Capital Region’s concert calendar for the upcoming 2024 season. Let’s start with a bang, shall we? The Capital Region’s classic rock station, Q1057 and 1035, has decided to test your luck. They’re offering the chance to win free tickets to see Mammoth WVH, the band that sprouted from the loins of Eddie Van Halen’s son, Wolfgang Van Halen. The concert, featuring the strumming sensation Nita Strauss, is set to take place on Sunday, March 10, 2024, at Empire Live in Albany. Now, isn’t that a sweet sounding deal?
Speaking of sweet deals, let’s talk about the ticket prices, which start at a meager $30. Yes, you read that right, folks, just thirty greenbacks for an unforgettable night of classic rock with a modern twist. But, if you’re the kind who loves suspense, you can try your luck in the station’s contest and aim to “Win ‘Em Before You Can Buy ‘Em.”
Now, before we move forward, let’s take a step back. Last year, the Capital Region witnessed the farewell concert of the legendary rock band, KISS. Named “End of the Road,” which could have been mistaken for a traffic sign, the concert was a testament to KISS’s enduring impact on the music industry. The band’s final performance at Madison Square Garden in the heart of New York City was nothing short of a spectacle – makeup, pyrotechnics, and unforgettable stage presence, they had it all.
The concert started with a bang, literally, as the opening chords of “Detroit Rock City” rattled the venue. The members of KISS, Paul Stanley, Gene Simmons, Tommy Thayer, and Eric Singer, held the crowd captive with their charisma – the same charisma that has kept them relevant for over four decades. From a fire-breathing act during “Firehouse” to a blood-spitting extravaganza in “God of Thunder,” KISS left no stone unturned to deliver an immersive experience for their fans.
The farewell concert was a bittersweet symphony that ended with an emotional encore featuring “Beth.” Tears spilled as KISS bid adieu to their fans, marking the end of an era. But as they say in showbiz, the show must go on. And so, it does for the Capital Region’s concert calendar.
As we look forward to the year 2024, Mammoth WVH’s performance is one of the most anticipated events. While Wolfgang Van Halen has a mountain of expectations to climb, given his father’s legendary status, he has shown promising talent. His music provides a refreshing take on classic rock, ensuring that the torch of rock and roll continues to burn bright. The concert is set to be a night filled with energy, passion, and a testament to the power of music. So grab your tickets, folks. After all, it’s not every day you get to witness the rise of a new rock legend.
