Jammin' In July 2008

Maybe this June didn't offer very much as far as good concerts to go to, but July 2008 is looking a lot better. A wide variety of musical tastes can be satisfied in the Mid-Atlantic region.

There are still tickets available for some big names in Hershey, PA. Piano pop maestro Billy Joel will perform at the Stadium on the 10th, making his first appearance to Hershey in almost 20 years. In the middle of their "Snakes And Arrows" tour, Rush will be there one week later, on July 17th.

Another great outdoor venue to visit is Merriweather Post Pavilion. I'd love to take in an evening of soulful sixties rock and more on July 17th, when the legendary Joe Cocker performs there. Unfortunately to me, but to the delight of others, the other half of the bill is the Steve Miller Band.

Have you ever been to the Pier Six Pavilion in Baltimore, MD? They've got a couple interesting events going on there this month. "Volunteer Jam 2008", featuring the folksy Charlie Daniels Band and classic southern rock's .38 Special happens on the 19th. To experience some reggae performed from the best bloodline you could possibly imagine, get tickets for July 26, 2008. That's when Pier Six will have the "Roots Rock Reggae Festival". The festival includes music from the Marley family, including Ziggy, Stephen and Damien "Jr. Gong" Marley.

A little further South, the Nissan Pavilion in Bristow, VA (a.k.a. Washington, DC) offers some good times this July. The 13th brings in "Crue Fest", with Motley Crue, Buckcherry and others. On the 19th, full of Hershey's Chocolate, Rush will energize the place with both their old hits as well as newer music. To finish off the month at Nissan Pavilion, Poison and Dokken bring their "Hair Metal" (music genre) on the 31st.

Two indoor concerts I should mention, happen at the Verizon Center in Washington, DC. On the 26th. It may be your last chance to see The Eagles. If you're a fan, get your tickets now. George Michael will entertain the VC on July 29th, supporting his just released 2CD set called "Twenty-Five".

Rush - "Far Cry"

Joe Cocker - "With A Little Help From My Friends"
