^ bzzt wrong. Sheryl Crow? really? yeah, because we REALLY need hear her fascinating story.

^ And she'd prolly not give any credit to Kevin Gilbert for starting her career... I'd much rather have had him live and be famous over her being famous.

Thank you BV, you are consistently helpful to live music lovers (on a shoestring) in the city. Just scored some tix to the Wednesday show, looking forward to it!

there is also a taping on friday that they are not giving tix away for or announcing as i'm sure it would cause a mob scene.

Who's on Friday then? The Jonas Brothers?

Posted by M | September 17, 2009 10:52 AM

I was actually kidding when I guessed the Jonas Brothers, but then I remembered they & Elvis did that Rolling Stone interview together & are all BFF's now.

Yeah, Bruce was my real guess. It's a few days before he starts his run at Giant's Stadium too.

Bruce and U2 are both definitely doing episodes. Not sure which ones though. Maybe the same one?

I went last night and tonight. Very different shows. I liked last night but it was so long. Tonight flowed a lot better. Elvis was on stage with all his old friends and the interviews weren't as formal. Elvis used the show to build his dream band.

The highlight for me was when Ray LaMontagne appeared on the stage and they played The Weight. Amazing!! Too bad Levon had no voice.

Wow, Iman. You really suck. I hope your blog isn't your only livelihood.

Posted by Anonymous | September 25, 2009 11:51 AM

Ditto on the Iman sucking comment 11:51. What a dickhead....he claims to be an expert yet is surprised that a free show isn't tailored for the audience. Ass. They are making a tv show.

Thanks for the information. Anyway, how can I get a free ticket? Is there any way for me to get one for free?

How do you get tickets for tapings at the Apollo in NYC?

Posted by Joe | January 5, 2010 7:03 PM

I'm just a Staten Island guy who'd rather here Weller 6 days a week and twice on Sunday's.
