Concert Images: Feelin That Music Goodness
Every now-and-then I like to head over to Wikicommons to check out concert images. It’s a bit of an adventure as I have no idea where to begin and where I’ll end up. Today’s venture unearthed these gems. They include a picture of fellow Aussie Iggy Azalea, Bono at a 360 degrees concert and Bruno Mars flashing that killer smile of his.

Okay, this wasn’t taken at a concert but I couldn’t resist adding it to the collection. Photo of Elvis Presley and Liberace trading places in 1956. The two entertainers switched jackets with Elvis taking Liberace’s candelabra and Liberace playing Elvis’ guitar for a publicity photo. Both were appearing in Las Vegas.
