There have been quite a few concerts around our area this past year and it looks like 2012 could be another great year of rock concerts in stopping by our stomping grounds. From Seattle, to Yakima and Tri-Cities to Missoula Montana we've had some great concerts to attend. Below is a simple list of shows that we here at 97 Rock have had some fun attending. What shows were the best of this past year?

Nightmare After Xmas Tour with Avenged Sevenfold

Saliva and Filter at the 97 Rock Badass Bash

Chevelle at the Toyota Arena

Sevendust, Disturbed and KORN at the Yakima Sundome for the Music as a Weapon Tour

Five Finger Death Punch in Missoula for the Share the Welt Tour

Kid Rock in Spokane at the Knitting Factory

97 Rocktoberfest featuring Hell's Belles and Great White

Rock Hard @ The Park in Post Falls, ID with Red Line Chemistry, Volbeat, Five Finger Death Punch and KORN

We've also had a bunch of local shows that a lot of you attended so don't forget about those. From Ray's Golden Lion to the Rock Reactor the local bands are getting a chance to showcase their work.


Last night on Twitter I hinted to Lizzy Hale of Halestorm that they need to stop by the Tri-Cities because even Morgan from Sevendust as been quoted as saying this is one of his Top 5 places to play. Lizzy tweeted us back and said they'd love to come. We'd love to see them!
