Why in the world would they combine CeeLo and Rihanna? They are two completely different kinds of artist. I would love to see CeeLo but can def pass on hearing her awful performance. She never sounds good live.

Melissa….I sure do miss your reviews and articles in the Richmond Times Dispatch. The Music section in our paper now is drastically lacking now.

Josh Wolf and Brad Wollack, 8 p.m. June 10 ($50-$84) — File under WHO?

$50-84 ??? Don Henley must be their agent.

@brokea$$ – Wolf and Wollack are on the bill with Chelsea Handler and Heather McDonald. Still not worth the price. Besides, Chastain sucks.

If you don’t sound good live, you don’t sound good.

I don’t think James Taylor’s band was legendary by any stretch of the imagination. He was, however, and that’s worth the price of admission.

@ OldTimer – If you don’t think Danny Kortchmar, Russ Kunkel and Leland Sklar aren’t legendary, you aren’t paying attention.
