Foreigners Residency in Vegas!

Well if you’re in Las Vegas in late January 2020 or April 2020 you should go see Foreigner.  They are having a residency at The Venetian Theatre inside The Venetian Resort in Las Vegas beginning January 24th for Five performances.  Then another run of Five performances in April 2020.

Lead singer Kelly Hansen had this to day (from

“If you take a look at Foreigner’s catalog, there are 16 top 30 hits, and [in planning a show like this] the problem becomes what songs do you leave out.  Do you do some songs acoustically or do you give them all the classic presentation? These are all discussions that we have in creating a set list, but you’re definitely going to hear all of the big ones for sure.”

Ticket Scammer Escapes Prison

I thought this was interesting.  Hannah Rebecca Valentine, 19, recently scammed 100 people out of fake concert tickets, gone to prison and now she’s escaped.  She was found guilty of 53 fraudulent offenses by forging tickets to various shows such as Post Malone and several festivals.

Pollstar Concert Industry Stats

Every now and then I like to post information about the business side of music.  This is an interesting story by Pollstar on the Concert Industry Stats comparison for the period of 11/23/17 – 5/23/18 versus 11/22/18 – 5/22/19.

“The data shows that the concert industry is relatively stable. Though down single digits in overall gross and ticket sales, the concert business saw an impressive increase in average tour gross. While the Top 100 Worldwide tours declined 3.79% in total gross from $2.14 billion in 2018 to $2.06 billion in 2019 and total ticket sales dropped 6.14% from 22.27 million to 23.73 million, the Top 100 Worldwide Tours average gross per show increased significantly from $836,984 in 2018 to $915,095 – a 9.3% jump. That rise was in part fueled by more tickets per show: 9,901 in 2019 versus 9,282 in 2018 – up 6.67%.”

Hologram Whitney Houston

Whitney Houstons sister-in-law, who handles Whitneys estate, is finally allowing a great deal that could put out an album of unreleased music, a Broadway Musical and a Hologram. The upcoming show is titled ‘An Evening With Whitney: The Whitney Houston Hologram Tour.

Rolling Stone spoke with BASE Hologram CEO Brian Becker who is creating the hologram said:

The concert will feature “a complete band onstage, backup singers, dancers etcetera. We will substantially increase our use of the creative elements that are available to us with this technology because it is cinematic, which means we can do animation and special effects to really enhance the show.”

Jay-Z and Timberlake for Super Bowl Sunday!

There is a small rumor that Jay-Z and Justin Timberlake wil be performing during the 2018 Super Bowl half time in February.  Don’t get your panties in a wad just yet.  It’s only a small rumor but I think it would be a great show.  As long as we don’t have to see that horrible old man show that is..The Who.
