We have been telling you about all the great sets at the first ever That Metal Show concert which was held at Thunder Valley Resort in Lincoln, CA last Friday. It was great seeing the hosts of VH1’s That Metal Show as they introduced all the great bands. Make sure to check out our coverage of Living Colour and  Anthrax too.  But now, let us tell you about the great eclectic set that Corey Taylor (Slipknot, Stone Sour) delivered.

Corey played a little bit of everything during his acoustic set. First, I have to tell you about the blazing heat as it was well over 100 degrees and I can only imagine how hot it was on that stage. I have to give a big kudos to all the great bands as they put on spectacular performances. Corey was there in the heat and he gave his 125% as always treating the crowd to his captivating vocals. He played some Stone Sour, cover songs, even a Slipknot song!

It was great to see Corey make it out to the event since he has been quite busy between Stone Sour and the new Slipknot album as well as his great work as an author. He is definitely a Renaissance Man. Make sure to visit his social media sites and stay up to date on his latest news of all things Corey! I will leave you with a couple videos from Corey’s set at Thunder Valley.

If the temperature wasn’t hot enough on Saturday night at the Thunder Valley Casino Resort Summer Concert Series, Rick Springfield was there to take it a few degrees hotter! He is one H-O-T performer and had all the ladies under his spell.  Rick Springfield has always been one of my personal favorites. Yes, I will admit I had a huge crush on him as Dr. Noah Drake on General Hospital and even more so when he soon became a pop rock icon. I had his posters from Tiger Beat and Circus Magazine all over my walls.

The night was awesome and filled with great music. First we had Eddie Money and next up was Loverboy. Then for the final set, Rick came out and took over the crowd with his magnetic charm. He literally had all the ladies screaming and acting like teenage girls! It was a wild time.  Rick even did an amazing cover of Katy Perry’s ROAR that had the crowd in a frenzy as they applauded. Check out the photos by our Rockin Ryan of the set:

Another highlight was Rick’s performance of Human Touch. There was excitement in the air as Rick was in the need for that Human Touch. He jumped over the barricade and proceeded to walk out onto the crowd and delivering a spectacular performance serenading the crowd. The night was a complete success and as we were leaving, everyone was talking about how amazing the night was. I love to hear the crowd walking out and literally gush about their concert experience. We need more nights like this one!

Make sure to visit the social media sites and not miss Rick Springfield when he comes to your town!
