Myles Kennedy recently released his debut solo album, Year of the Tiger. Since then, Kennedy has hit the road with a small crew to take his music directly to the people. I attended his show in Los Angeles and had an incredible time.
Many of the people I met at the show described the show as if Kennedy “took them to church” and I couldn’t agree more. From the moment Kennedy took the stage, he had the audience’s attention.
Before the show, I arrived and saw a line wrapping around two corners at the Troubadour in Hollywood. All of those people in line waiting to see Kennedy take the stage.
Inside the Troubadour, Thomas Wynn and the Believers opened up the show with incredible harmonies and made some new fans in the process.
At 8pm, the lights went out and the intro to “Devil On The Wall” blared out from the speakers and the crowd erupted in cheers. You can see on the left hand of the stage a silhouette of a man walking down the famous stairs of the Troubadour and grab a guitar. Kennedy takes over from where the recording left off.
Over the next two hours, Kennedy begins to play songs from his career spanning three decades including songs from the Mayfield Four, Alter Bridge, Slash ft. Myles Kennedy & The Conspirators and, of course, his solo record.
Some of the highlights from the Los Angeles Show include Kennedy playing “Losing Patience,” his version of “Wold On Fire,” and his iconic cover of “Traveling Riverside Blues.”
Kennedy has found a way to capture his audience’s attention and play to their emotions and loyalty. It was an incredible night. If you’re a fan of Kennedy, this tour is a great way to see Kennedy perform some of his biggest hits from over the years.

Selena Gomez doesn’t plan on releasing an album anytime soon, however she does have a new single coming out.
The Netflix original 13 Reasons Why is being released soon and Gomez has a song on the soundtrack. The song is called “Back To You” and is set to release May 10th.
Gomez is currently focusing on her health stating to Bazaar Magazine:
When people ask me why, I’m honest about it: It’s because I haven’t been ready. I mean, point-blank, I don’t feel confident enough in where my music is yet,” she explained to the magazine. “If that takes 10 years, then it takes 10 years.”
We hope it doesn’t take Selena 10 years to release a new album.
TMZ.com is reporting the cause of death for the Sweedish DJ Avicii. It was announced last week that Avicii had died and we now know the cause.
Avicii’s family released this statement last week alluding to the DJ taking his own life:
“He really struggled with thoughts about Meaning, Life, Happiness,” the statement read. “He could not go on any longer. He wanted to find peace. Tim was not made for the business machine he found himself in; he was a sensitive guy who loved his fans but shunned the spotlight.”
It’s been confirmed that Avicii did take his own life by cutting himself with a piece of a broken wine bottle.
Our thoughts go out to the friends, family, and fans of Avicii. If you or someone you know is contemplating suicide, call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-8255.

Swedish DJ Avicii, whose real name is Tim Bergling, has died at the age of 28.
His publicist Diana Baron released this statement to TMZ:
“It is with profound sorrow that we announce the loss of Tim Bergling, also known as Avicii,” the statement reads. “He was found dead in Muscat, Oman this Friday afternoon local time, April 20th. The family is devastated and we ask everyone to please respect their need for privacy in this difficult time. No further statements will be given.”
Avicii retired from performing live in 2016 at the age of 26, citing his health as the reason. Avicii had been hospitalized twice in the past for alcohol related issues and had problems with addiction. It’s not clear what contributed to his death.
The popular DJ was recently nominated for a Billboard Music Award for ‘Top Dance/Electronic Album’ as well as being nominated for Grammy’s in 2011 and 2012. He has collaborated with a number of artists in many genres and is probably best known for his smash hit ‘Wake Me Up’ with Aloe Blacc.
