Live Rock Concerts

More and more concerts at Region of Murcia. Only on March, they are programmed 111 live concerts on private concert halls. Great!
But nowadays, new music bands have no impact. Only old bands or tribute bands (image, Metallica tribute band at Garage Beat Club) manage to fill concert halls. :(
