The Paramount's Most Wanted

Everyday our mailboxes get filled with all your suggestions as to whom you’d like to see at The Paramount. From rock-n- roll to country we have narrowed down the list to 3 timeless acts. These are The Paramount’s Top 3 Most Wanted…now let’s hope they come!

The first band on our list is Linkin Park. Back in 1996 Linkin Park was just another rock band from California. The group of High School friends originally called themselves Hybrid Theory. After adding Chester Bennington, the group decided to change their name to Linkin Park. Their hits like ‘Numb’, ‘Lying from you’, and ‘Somewhere I belong’ has catapulted them to the top of the charts. Linkin Park has continued to explore different types of music including electronic sounds. They have also collaborated with rapper Jay-z on ‘Collision Course’, and ‘Reanimation’ adding to their variety of music. Their latest album was released in June 2012 entitled “Living Things” and they will continue to perform this summer.

Sting has made it to the top of our list! Born as Gordon Sumner in 1951, he received his famous name from a fellow musician who noticed his black and yellow stripped sweater. Sting got his jump start to stardom in a group called Police. He became a solo artist in 1987 and created Grammy winning hits such as ‘Fields of Gold’. In the late 80’s Sting helped establish the Rainforest Foundation. He’s since held fund raisers that brought awareness to the endangered Brazilian territory. Age is just a number to Sting and he has no intention on slowing down.  In 2011 he celebrated his 60th birthday and one year later went on tour. His Back to Bass tour is set to revisit North America and Europe this summer.

Rounding off our list at number 3 is Journey. A year after forming they were signed to Columbia Records in 1974. They have 19 Top 40 singles and 25 Gold and Platinum albums. Their long lists of hits include, ‘Don’t Stop Believin’, ‘Who’s Crying Now’, and ‘Open Arms’.  After taking a short break in the late 80’s, they reunited in 1996 for “Trial by Fire” which took two weeks to write and record. Their hit single ‘When you Love a Woman’ earned them their first Grammy nomination and in 2011 the band released their latest album “Eclipse.” Three decades and 16 albums later, multiple generations are enjoying Journey’s timeless hits.
