I would never pass up an opportunity to listen to Young Jeezy’s music with him, but that was not what we had come for. By the time the headlining act took the stage on Oct. 27, the crowd at the Greensboro Coliseum had thinned dramatically, and as the Atlanta rap star waded through his set, energy remained low....

On the guilty pleasures scale of one to Hall & Oates, the other overweight lover ranks among the rangiest and most severe. A quick survey of the concert tees in the near-sellout crowd for his Sunday, Aug....

In the annals of performers berating audience members, Chatham County Line’s request for a few churls at their Saturday night Blind Tiger performance to “kindly shut the hell up” so John Teer could break off a wicked mandolin solo was solid, even if it wouldn’t sniff the Top 10....
