    The editor should do some research about the Buckcherry show. It is actually JANUARY 22. My guess is they are a Justin Bieber fan and not a rock music fan. Hope your fact finding department didnt disappoint both of your readers by sending them on a wild goose chase.

    Our apologies Timebomb. The Buckcherry show was incorrectly listed as Dec. 22. The show Jagermeister Music Tour featuring Buckcherry is stopping by the Hard Rock Hotel Jan. 22. Show time is 8 p.m. and tickets start at $32.
