Coheed & Cambria Summer Tour 2011

I thought it blog worthy to post a brief announcement about an upcoming FREE Coheed and Cambria show in the Williamsburg section of Brooklyn this June.  Apparently as a kind gesture by the band in celebration of a decade together they will rock the masses on June 11th on the Williamsburg waterfront, cool.

I’m sure this will become a massive event so it might be best to plan ahead eh?  When you announce a free show to be held within the confines of NYC it attract’s more than just a few curious passer by’s.

On another note, and one I found even more astounding than a free show, was that the band has announced that it will play a select number of dates along with Soundgarden, awesome!

Below are the dates for the shows in July where the two bands will be playing.

July
02 – Toronto, ON – Molson Canadian Amphitheater – On Sale Now
03 – London, ON – John Labatt Center – On sale 5/14
06 – Uncasville, CT – Mohegan Sun Arena – On sale 5/13
08 – Newark, NJ – Prudential Center – On sale 5/13
09 – Wantagh, NY – Nikon at Jones Beach Theater – On sale 5/13
10 – Mansfield, MA – Comcast Center for the Performing Arts – On sale 5/14

Tell us if you go to any of the shows or the Williamsburg gig, we’re curious!

Sonisphere 2010 & Big 4 – 3/19 on Palladia HD

Very cool news for us metalheads who were not able to take our private jets to Sofia, Bulgaria to witness the Big 4 (Metallica, Megadeth, Slayer, Anthrax); it would seem that the new music concert channel Palladia (formerly VH1) will be playing the concert (highlights only I’m sure) on March 19th during their Metal Mania Day.  The 2010 Sonisphere from London will first play at 8 p.m. EST, and then The Big 4 at 10 p.m. EST.

I’ve been pretty happy with the programming on Palladia since it emerged on my HD channel listings; last night I was watching Glastonbury 2007 and was amazed at the line up of bands I had never heard, and still hadn’t up until last night!  Palladia is still a hit or miss channel, something for everyone I guess, but I try to avoid the Kelly Clarkson and Adam Lambert concerts at all costs.  Otherwise, they have featured some great concerts on a regular basis and a keep things fresh for the most part.  I highly recommend the 2010 Austin City Limits concert they featured last week; clearly Ben Harper and Coheed and Cambria stole the show in my opinion.  The headliner was Pearl Jam, and I guess I just feel that their time has come and gone; one of the most boring acts of the lineup, especially for a headlining act.

Check out the Metalfest on March 19th and tell us what you think!
