So, I woke up this morning at 8:00 a.m. and scrolled through my phone as usual. I saw a Twitter notification from Aerosmith with the phrase "PEACE OUT!" Curious, I clicked on the notification and found that the American rock band just announced a farewell tour with The Black Crowes as the opening act. The... Continue Reading →
Is It Time for Bon Jovi to Retire?
I’m going to put a pause on the Disney College Program blog posts to talk about something that’s been trending in the music world recently (at least in my opinion). The American rock band Bon Jovi kicked off their 2022 tour in Omaha, Nebraska at the CHI Health Center on Friday, April 1. Unfortunately, they... Continue Reading →
Why Aren’t Artists Releasing Studio Albums As Often Anymore?
Ever since I got into AC/DC, I’ve wondered what would’ve happened if the band released one more studio album with Malcolm Young, founding member and former rhythm guitarist, before he retired? Either between Stiff Upper Lip (2000) and Black Ice (2008), or Black Ice and Rock or Bust (2014)? To be fair, AC/DC are a... Continue Reading →
I Was Supposed to See Harry Styles in Concert, But Now I Can’t!

Which Songs Should AC/DC Add to Their Setlist?
Even if there's only a slight chance of AC/DC reuniting for one final album and tour, I want to prepare myself for the day I get to see these rockers in person. The lineup would consist of hopefully, Angus Young, Brian Johnson, Stevie Young, Cliff Williams, and Phil Rudd. After watching many virtual AC/DC concerts,... Continue Reading →
Which Songs Should Def Leppard Add to Their Setlist?
I love Def Leppard, but sometimes I feel like their setlists have gotten pretty predictable throughout the years. They still sound great live, and the experience itself is mind-blowing (from what I've researched), but I think it's time for the boys to spice up their concerts. Their catalog is so diverse, yet they play the... Continue Reading →
Do Artists Need to Play Their Hits at Concerts?
It depends! For any artist, they need to have popular tunes to sell records. But sometimes, overplaying the hits can be a bit much at times. It is necessary, though; at a Bon Jovi concert, for example, the crowd would be upset if they don't play "Bad Medicine," "Wanted Dead Or Alive," or "Livin' On... Continue Reading →
