I’ve heard of a few more Fargo concerts in the last couple of days, and just wanted to let you know about them in case you’re interested:
- The Gear Daddies and Soul Asylum, both Minneapolis rock bands, added post-Thanksgiving shows at The Venue at The Hub. Martin Zellar and the Gear Daddies have reunited again, and will play Nov. 27. Soul Asylum returns for a show Dec. 5. Both shows are 21+, and tickets go on sale Friday at noon for $15 or are available for $20 on the day of the show. Tickets are on sale at The Hub, Tickets 300 at 300 Broadway (Fargo), at www.jadepresents.com or by phone at (800) 511-1552.
- The Fargo Forum reported today that Bon Jovi will once again grace the Fargodome stage, but not until March 13. Details are expected to be announced Nov. 4. The Forum said nearly 25,000 people attended when Bon Jovi first played the ‘Dome in April 2008.
In other news, Born to Roam (my band) once again won the Grand Cities Rock Band Tour competition last night at Muddy Rivers. There were a few other bands that seemed to have a good time – including one who borrowed my band’s vocalist for a duet on Bon Jovi’s "Livin’ on a Prayer." Dan had almost lost his voice after trying to keep up with Jon Bon Jovi’s crazy high vocals on that song, but it was fun to watch. The grand prize? $10 gift certificates to Budget Music for each band member, and two Xbox 360 games. The next competition is Oct. 28 (next Wednesday) from 9 p.m. to midnight at Rumors Bar. Just a reminder – these events are free to participate in, and there are prizes for the winning band. I’ll likely be back next week with Born to Roam to see if we can keep our winning streak alive.
