This morning, I was looking for a version of the performance by Jack Black and Casey Abrams to listen to and I came across a great site called The site is great.  There are tons of versions of each song, a massive song selection and an option to download the song you’re looking for.  If you’re looking for a place to find mp3s or listen to music, check it out.


This summer should be a great season for concerts. Many great bands, singers and artists have announced tours, some of which start soon. Taylor Swift may be one of the top tours this summer but she has some competition… Kenny Chesney, U2, Keith Urban, NKOTB & BSB, Jimmy Buffett, Josh Groban and many others will be taking the stage this summer.

I am interested to see if the Foo Fighters will add more USA dates. Also, it will be interesting to see if Nickelback goes back on tour.

As far as comedy, the biggest tour might be Jeff Foxworthy, Larry the Cable Guy and Bill Engvall. There hasn’t been much talk or rumors about other comedy tours. Maybe Jerry Seinfeld will add more dates as usual.

In a few weeks, American Idol will be nearing he series finale and they usually release an ‘American Idols Live’ tour which does well.

Even Charlie Sheen is touring. I am not too sure what he will be doing on his tour but he is the center of the entertainment world right now. I wouldn’t let anyone under 18 into those shows hana.

When looking for concert tickets online, there are many places to consider… Craigslist, BackPage, eBay, StubHub and others.

As a fan, your best bet is to buy your tickets from a source such as Front Row King.

StubHub has millions of dollars worth of advertising to get you to visit their site.  Where does that money come from?  Over-priced tickets.

Craigslist has lots of fans trying to sell tickets but lots of them are scalpers and you don’t want to get scammed or ripped off from someone you don’t know.

Back Page is similar to Craigslist.  There is no guarantee.

eBay can be a good choice but can be complicated and confusing and you don;t know if you are getting a good deal or not.

Front Row King has inventory from brokers across the world.  When looking for tickets, it is simple and straight-forward.  Your purchase is backed by a 100% guarantee.  Next time you’re looking for tickets, consider the King, Front Row King.

Justin Bieber13 seconds…

According to the staff at Monday’s Justin Bieber concert at Verizon Theatre at Grand Prairie, that’s how long it took for the show to sell out. The 16-year-old sensation, whose videos on YouTube led to his big break with pop star Usher, has the elusive “it.”

So what sets him apart from every other wannabe heartthrob? His fans point to singing ability, his hotness and, of course, that hair. Which he should probably never cut.

“Whenever he swings it in front of his face and all that, that makes a lot of girls go crazy,” says Alyson Amburgey, 12, who went to the concert with three other friends from Irving.

What makes him so popular? “His lyrics make a lot of sense,” she says, “and he’s really, really hot.”

Her friend Melissa Matkin, 14, said she didn’t see anyone faint from excitement or anything, “but I did hear that one girl went onstage and they had to take her off.”

Amber and Melissa went to the concert with Megan Bynum, 12, whose dad, Brent Bynum, bought the tickets as a treat for his daughter.

“It was her idea to go,” Brent says. “I’d say she has Bieber fever.”

He, however, is not afflicted.

“The first time I ever heard him, I thought it was a girl singing,” Bynum says. “It was hard to listen to.”

He suspects Bieber’s popularity has a lot to do with “all the marketing that’s behind him. He made his own break, but once that was there, everything else has taken off like crazy for him. He had the right marketing people, who hooked him up with all the bigger names.”

His fans are much less cynical, preferring to attribute the singer’s success to talent and pure magic. That’s why many of them lovingly created posters for the show – which were then left in a sad pile by the front doors, thanks to a last-minute rule change.

“We said they could take them in,” says ticket-taker Betty Malone, “but Justin Bieber’s people said they couldn’t.”

There sat the messages the singer would never see: “I love you. Marry me, Bieber.” “Can we meet you?” “Justin Bieber is Beast.” (This is apparently a good thing.)

Standing near the discarded handiwork were Lisa Morse and Patsy Brown of Celina, whose 12-year-old daughters were inside.

“They’ve been excited for about a week,” says Morse, whose daughter, Hannah, was invited by Brown’s daughter, Maddie, as a birthday present. “This is the first time we’ve allowed them to go to a concert by themselves.”

The moms admitted that they’re also fans; they just didn’t want to pay $100 apiece for two more tickets.

“Oh, he’s a cutie-pie,” says Morse, who suddenly recalled the time she went to see the Osmonds in Montgomery, Ala.

As she stood outside the venue, all dressed up and waiting for dreamboat Donny to appear, “Jimmy walks by and says, ‘Hi, how’re you doing?’ ” Morse recalls of the less-popular brother. I’m like, ‘Fine.’ Donny comes running by and is gone, just like that. I should’ve gotten Jimmy’s autograph or something!”

But poor Jimmy just didn’t have what it takes to make girls swoon or sell out shows in mere seconds. Jimmy was no Justin Bieber.

Also waiting outside Verizon was Justin Worthington and daughter Reagan, 2 ½ . They’d driven from Marshall so his daughter Caitlyn, 12, and wife, Nicole, could see the show.

Worthington said it wasn’t hard to get tickets: “I just paid three times what they’re worth.”

They were probably worth even more to Caitlyn, who later said she was screaming the entire time.

“The lady in front of us had to put earphones in,” she said, adding that she had company: “My mom loved it. She was jumping up and down, screaming and singing.”

While Caitlyn loves Bieber for his singing talent, she also couldn’t resist reviewing the hairdo.

“Oh, his hair!” she said. “When he swishes it, it just goes perfect.”

And another satisfied Bieber fan leaves the concert. For others, his appeal remains a mystery. When Caitlyn’s dad is asked why Bieber is such a hot commodity, he replies, “I have no idea. At all.”

Justin Bieber TourHe certainly knows how to make an entrance: Justin Bieber arrived on stage by rising up into a large spherical steel cage, wreathed in dry-ice smoke and bathed in lights as he kicked off his “My World” tour Wednesday night at XL Center in Hartford.

It was the first in a series of flashy visual spectacles that kept a capacity crowd of tweens (and less so their patient parents) shrieking at full volume throughout the 16-year-old Canadian singer’s 75-minute set of sugary pop songs, often with an R&B flavor.

There were jets of steam, various costumes and two more steel contraptions suspended from the rigging. Both of them ventured out over the crowd with Bieber singing from inside them: He sang and played “Never Let You Go” and “Favorite Girl” while seated inside a heart, and ran through “Up” from inside what looked like an egg.

Bieber and his backup dancers glided through well-choreographed dance steps that sometimes called to mind the moves of Michael Jackson, and the singer roamed the stage when he wasn’t part of the routines.

On “Somebody to Love,” Bieber, dressed in black as if ready to pull off a bank heist, strapped himself into a harness to scale a backdrop adorned with a cartoonish city skyline, which he tagged, graffiti-style, with his initials in black spray paint.

The show featured music, too, though that sometimes seemed incidental as Bieber padded out his set with video interludes (including high-profile plugs for the video-game manufacturer sponsoring his tour), a medley of songs from his backup singers, Legacy, and a medley for his dancers to showcase their moves. The latter ended with Bieber taking a turn on drums during a chorus of Aerosmith’s “Walk This Way.”

He sang tunefully and with feeling on the slower numbers, though his voice sometimes sounded raspy, as though he was suffering from allergies. Or puberty. Either way, he often sang along with recorded tracks, which resulted in an opening-night glitch when they seemed to drop out on “Runaway Love.”

One of the openers, Jessica Jarrell, sang a duet with Bieber on “Overboard,” and support act Sean Kingston joined Bieber on “Eenie Meenie.” Bieber ended his regular set a song later with “Down to Earth,” before returning for an encore that started with an a cappella version of Chris Brown’s “With You” and ended with Bieber’s biggest hit, “Baby.”
