Tori Amos set list

Tori Amos wrapped up the first date of new North American tour about an hour and a half ago in Seattle, and her fans are in for a serious treat. She, drummer Matt Chamberlain and multi-instrumentalist Jon Evans tried out some fresh, new arrangements on several of her ’90s classics, most of them more synth focused than the acoustic originals. "Baker Baker," the only song she played alone at her Bosendorfer, stood in stark, heart-rending contrast to numbers powered by Chamberlain and Evans’ galvanizing rhythm section. And "These Precious Things" washed over the crowd like a tsunami, with many women

Here’s who sang what on the second night of the American Idols Live tour, which wound down a couple of hours ago at the Tacoma Dome. Check back, ’cause I’ve got more pics and a little commentary on the way.

Green Day set list


There were ribcage rattling explosions, fan cameos during songs and an inebriated, pink rabbit. Plus, some guy Frenched Green Day front man Billie Joe Armstrong during “Longview.” Now that’s a tour kickoff! Here’s the set list for now with more photos and observations on the way.

Jonas Brothers review and set list

Before I write anything else about the Jonas Brothers’ headlining set at the Tacoma Dome Sunday night, I have to give a big shout out to "South Park" creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker. They made my experience at the T-Dome far more bearable than expected, and at times pretty humorous.

I don’t mean to hate on the Jo Bros. They seem like nice enough lads. But I’m the wrong gender and about two decades too old to get it. Their confectionary, Disney-sanctioned pop makes my eyes glaze over faster than melatonin, and many of the parental guardian types on site at the T-Dome Sunday feel the same way by the looks of things.

But tweeners fiend for the Jo Bros in a way that can’t be cured without a trip to the ol’ Schick Shadel (or, like, turning 16 and discovering emo.) And being reminded just how crazed those hormone-addled fans get at the mere mention of Nick, Kevin or Joe, and just how little the "South Park" guys had to exaggerate for their Jonas Brothers episode, was heeee-larious!

PJ Harvey and John Parish set list


PJ Harvey is seldom more experimental (or screechy) than when she teams up with longtime collaborator John Parish. And Tuesday night at Seattle’s Moore Theatre, the duo performed rootsy selections from their two discs, "Dance Hall at Louse Point" and this year’s "A Woman A Man Walked By." Apologies for the late set list, but I’m actually out of the office for a few days. But here ya go.

The Ventures, Fabulous Wailers celebrate 50 years of rock



Top photo: The Ventures’ Nokie Edwards, Bob Spalding and Don Wilson rock out to their 1960 hit "Walk, Don’t Run." Later, drummer Leon Taylor would steal the show with an epic solo on "Caravan." Second photo: The Fabulous Wailers’ Kent Morrill still has that Little Richard-style howl; guitarist John Hanford in the background.

Brad Paisley, Dierks Bentley set lists


Portrait of a country guitar hero: Brad Paisley Saturday night at the Tacoma Dome.

ERNEST JASMIN


Brad Paisley’s show was a gas Saturday night at the Tacoma Dome, thanks in no small part to a slick video presentation that brought us Guitar Hero, Brad Paisley stye, and virtual cameos from the likes of Taylor Swift, Keith Urban and Alison Krauss. Check back later and I’ll have more comments and some pics up. Meanwhile, here are a couple of set lists for you.

Metallica set list

Just got back from Metallica’s big show at KeyArena. And for the record, the sound and set list were a bit better Nov. 1 in Portland. James Hetfield’s vocals tended to get lost in the sound mix at times; and among my favorite classic tracks missing from the Seattle set were “For Whom the Bell Tolls” and “And Justice for All.” But whaddayagonnado? The band’s got 25 years of tunes to choose from, and “Blackened” was a nice add, besides.


Speaking of the set list, I think I may be leaving one out that I can’t recall, as I
