But mostly good news: two new concerts are slated to hit Spokane in the next couple months.
Like A Storm with Palisades and Farewell to Fear
New Zealand hard rockers Like A Storm will hit the Knitting Factory… like a storm… on Dec. 19 on their Stitches and Scars 2018 tour, alongside Palisades and Farewell to Fear.
If you’re into more contemporary post-grunge sounds, mixed up with an occasional didgeridoo solo — because New Zealand — you might want to check these guys out.
Tickets are available now. Click here for more or call 866-468-7623.
(Didgeridoo solo at 2:12, FYI)
The Music of Queen
Fans of Queen and the Spokane Symphony will get a treat on Jan. 26 with the Music of Queen, which is exactly what it sounds like: symphony meets rock 'n roll. Tickets for the show go on sale on Nov. 2, just a day after the release Bohemian Rhapsody, a film about the life of Queen frontman Freddie Mercury. Here's a photo from the film:

Chateau Guitar Festival
The Chateau Guitar Festival scheduled for Oct. 27 at the Flour Mill has been cancelled due to poor ticket sales and the loss of a major sponsor. The event was set to feature longtime guitarist for Michael Jackson Jennifer Batten, which sucks because Batten CAN EFFING SHRED.
Here’s a video of her getting down with the King of Pop while wearing some crazy ass costumes.
