Lzzy Hale Almost Performed in Grand Rapids with Lindsey Stirling on Monday Night [Video]

On Monday, June 8th, Lindsey Stirling appeared at the DeVos Performance Hall here in Grand Rapids, for her sold out show! If you don't know who she is, she's the 'Dub Step Violinist'. She's a classically trained violinist who writes her music with ambient and dub step style sound to it.

Why would care? One, it's pretty cool; two, it's impressive that she can play a violin and dance at the same time; and three, she recorded a song on her new album with Lzzy Hale from Halestorm! It's called 'Shatter Me', and is the title track to the new album, too.

Mayhem Festival Promoter Has Approached Pantera for a Reunion

Here's a bad idea:

The producer behind the Rockstar Energy Mayhem Festival has approached the surviving members of Pantera about reuniting, to 'get them out there'. He thinks it would be totally 'bad ass'...and people would have a chance to see Pantera, and of course he would make a s***-ton of money selling tickets.

I know, a lot of people never got to see Pantera during their heyday, and would really like a chance to see them. I totally get it.

But guess what? It's NEVER GOING TO HAPPEN!
