The Counting Crows are coming back to Grand Sierra Resort and Casino for a one-night-only show. The sure to sell out concert is July 2 at 9 p.m. at the Grand Theatre (next to LEX inside the GSR). Also on the bill are grunge rockers Live. Plus, there is a supporting band yet to be announced. Doors open at 6 p.m. so plan to get there early if you want see all three bands.

The Counting Crows are no stranger to the biggest little city as they have rocked Reno many times over the years. They always put on a great show, one that you’ll be talking about for the next few days afterwards.

Tickets are on sale now and prices range from $69.50 to $250 for VIP packages. You can get your tickets on line at

Also playing the next week at the GSR is one of the best, if not the best, Pink Floyd tribute bands ever: Brit Floyd. The band will be rocking North America’s largest stage for a performance July 11 that will for sure be a sell-out.

John Tuckness has been photographing rock concerts in the Reno/Sparks/Tahoe area and as far as Northern California since 2004. He tries to attend as many shows as he can. John knew he wanted to be a concert photographer when he went to his first concert, Kiss and Montrose way back in 1976. He saw three guys shooting the show and thought to himself, "that's what I want to do." After many years of undercover work (sneaking his camera into venues), he finally got noticed and started getting photo passes through PR people and the bands. John has had many of his photos published in newspapers, websites and band autobiographies.
