Views …

AC/DC in Tacoma, Washington - "In one of the hardest-rocking shows of the year, the Australian band took more than 21,000 fans on a high-decibel thrill ride through its repertoire of head-banging songs Sunday night at the Tacoma Dome." - Seattle Post Intelligencer

Tina Turner in NYC - "The spectacle fans witnessed last night wasn't far removed from one they would have enjoyed at the star's solo peak in the '80s." - New York Daily News

The Kooks in England - "Rock bands often sing about freedom, but there aren't many that identify it with learning the alphabet." - Telegraph U.K.

Martha Wainwright in Edmonton - "In short, despite some deserved commercial success, Martha Wainwright is in no danger of being seen as the least interesting musical member of her particular family." - Edmonton Sun

Anita Baker in Birmingham, Alabama - "A high-level performance marked by passion, conviction and good cheer." - The Birmingham News

Slipknot in London - "Yet there remains something pantomimic about Slipknot: the ridiculous garb, macho posturing and the feel that, despite the surprising amount of adult's in attendance, this isn't music to be taken too seriously." - The Evening Standard / ThisIsLondon.co.uk

    ashleyz, this sounds like a personal problem, unless you've replaced the now MIA previous hall monitor.

    whoa, who peed in everyone's cornflakes this morning?  i was referring to this because people seem to have a problem with reading:

    Fawcett's attorney, Kim Swartz, said in April that the star's cancer diagnosis and details of her treatment showed up in the National Enquirer after an employee at the hospital accessed her medical records.

    U.S. attorney's spokesman Thom Mrozek said that no charges have been filed against the Enquirer or any other publications, but that the role of the media is part of the investigation into the privacy breaches.

    "Certainly there is possible culpability at media outlets if we can determine that they were knowingly paying for the illegal access of celebrity files," Mrozek said.

    but what point is there in commenting on ANYTHING if it's going to be flung back at you? instead of having fun with the comments and stories, people now have to watch their backs for trolls defecating all over the new Pollstar.

    There certainly seems to be a lot of hostility among the Pollstarati, no?

    Good to hear that AC/DC can still rock the arenas. I checked out the prices for their shows here in the bay area. Lets just say my only hope was to win them from the radio. The shows are Tuesday and Thursday. I don't like my chances.

    HSLono, obviously these commenters are too busy with THE FACTS to explain their strange comments.

    That's the problem with America, or something!

    Excuse me? Where is there a National Enquirer story that Ashley is saying they're in deep *** over?

    And pray tell, both of you, are you Pollstar's official "comment on every post" plants?
