With their career now spanning over four decades, and virtually zero support from radio outlets anywhere in the world, Iron Maiden has both earned and embraced the term “legacy.”
St. Louis radio station The Point hosted Breaking Benjamin's first show of their summer tour, with a packed bill of some of the hottest acts in the hard rock and metal genre working today.
On July 25, the godfather of macabre rock himself, Alice Cooper made his return engagement to the St. Louis area, bringing a brand new tour to the Hollywood Casino Amphitheatre. Along with his own superstar-packed band, “Ol' Black Eyes” brought along some other friends to help bring a night of dark, heavy rock to the Gateway City.
Closing out July at the Hollywood Casino Amphitheatre – Tuesday the 30th, to be exact – an eclectic mix of rock, pop, alt, and indie innovators brought an incredible show to Maryland Heights. Beck and Cage the Elephant hit this stop on their co-headlining “Night Running” tour to the river valley and delivered one of the most memorable shows in recent memory.
On another warm, sultry night in the confluence area of the Missouri and Mississippi Rivers, the sounds of soul- and Latin-infused blues filled the air, making the night even hotter. Santana and The Doobie Brothers dropped into the Gateway City for a night of scorching riffs and searing horns that made for a fantastic start to a mid-July weekend.
