  6. Live music an important part of what Kimmel does on TVRead the original story w/Photo

    Friday Jul 3 | The Winnipeg Free Press

    WHEN Jimmy Kimmel Live! shut down Hollywood Boulevard for a Paul McCartney concert two years ago, so many people turned up that the former Beatle, gazing into a sea of humanity, cracked, "You all right back there in... Santa Monica?" Musical performances have long been a hallmark of late-night television, but Kimmel tries to take it to another level, in part, as the host explains in an interview in his office, because musicians were about the only guests he could book when his program began 12 years ago. Now he's mashing up bands from past and present, and occasionally shutting down traffic in Hollywood for the likes of Van Halen, Taylor Swift and Justin Timberlake.

  10. AC/DC shook the Aviva Stadium all night longRead the original story w/Photo

    Thursday Jul 2 | RTE.ie

    In an endlessly quotable life, Van Halen singer David Lee Roth's two cents' worth about live gigs ranks among his very best. "If you can't do it in a white T-shirt and a pair of jeans under one white light bulb," Roth said, "you can't do it!" Now, AC/DC had tonnes of lights, videos and props for their long-awaited show at the Aviva on Wednesday night, but had they left them all in the trucks around Bath Avenue, given most of the riggers and crew the night off and resorted to a single 100-watt, the result would've been exactly the same: the biggest and best backroom band in the world, shrinking another stadium and owning a crowd.
