There is an alternate universe to our own, where Metallica’s James Hetfield moshes along with No Doubt’s Gwen Stefani at a Green Day concert. Where Bradley Nowell of Sublime still performs with beach-bum gusto and Mr. Belding from Saved by the Bell rocks out like it’s 1999.
Welcome to the world of tribute bands. It’s a fantastical community where mega-fans and seasoned music veterans can slip on the robes of beloved performers and let loose. Each concert (and there are a ton of them) is a celebration of songs that energized past generations and continue to enrapture youths.
