DAN REED NETWORK Announces 2017 UK Dates

 
DAN REED NETWORK 'FIGHT ANOTHER DAY' - MARCH 2017 UK TOUR
 
Dan Reed Network are pleased to announce a nationwide 11-date UK Tour in March 2017 to promote their recent studio album 'Fight Another Day'. 
Tickets are now on sale via - http://danreed-network.com/tour/.  Special guests on all dates (except Sheffield) is VEGA.
 
DRN is thrilled to be returning to Europe this next March, says Reed.  'Dan Pred, Brion James, Melvin Brannon II, Rob Daiker and I are really looking forward to playing many new and unique venues throughout the UK, and rockin' up the funk hard core and meeting all those who are able to attend and bring down the house with us. We thank you for the many years of support and especially believing that we had new music in us to offer! We are forever grateful for you all being there with us on this journey!' 
 
Frontiers Music Srl released Dan Reed Network's latest studio album 'Fight Another Day' on Friday June 3rd, 2016. The album marked a significant and anticipated return of one of the most infectious and gifted bands to come out in the melodic rock world in the second part of the 1980's. 
 
Originally formed in Portland, Oregon, Dan Reed Network packed out local clubs from late 1984 through 1986 with their compelling mix of musical styles ranging from hard rock, funk and soul.  In 1987, the first single, 'Ritual', peaked at number 38 on the Billboard Charts and became a staple of the funk rock. 
 
While attending the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum induction ceremony in NYC in January 1989, Dan Reed met up with producer Nile Rodgers (Duran Duran, Madonna, David Bowie) which led to the creation of the second album 'Slam'.  Produced by Rodgers, it better represented the Dan Reed Network's live sound and accelerated the band's growing status in Europe. Dan Reed Network opened the European leg of Bon Jovi's 'New Jersey Tour' in 1989 and The Rolling Stones' European Urban Jungle Tour in 1990.
 
DRN's  third album 'The Heat', produced by Bruce Fairbairn in 1991, was their biggest success in the UK, mostly due to the single 'Lover' which was accompanied by a live video from Wembley Stadium filmed when they opened for the Stones.

LAST IN LINE Announce California and Nevada Show Dates

Artist: 
 
 
LAST IN LINE---the band that features current DEF LEPPARD/former DIO guitarist Vivian Campbell, former DIO/BLACK SABBATH drummer Vinny Appice and vocalist Andrew Freeman (RAIDING THE ROCK VAULT/OFFSPRING) have confirmed five USA concert dates for October before they head out on a UK/Europe tour. After memorable appearances at the LOUD PARK Festival in Japan and Rocklahoma in the USA, requests came soaring in from fans, demanding that LAST IN LINE play more stateside shows. To round out the line-up bassist Phil Soussan (OZZY OSBOURNE, VINCE NEIL) has been enlisted after original DIO bassist/original LAST IN LINE member Jimmy Bain passed away. Erik Norlander (Ex-ASIA) will handle keyboards.

October 22: Costa Mesa, California-Tiki Bar, 7pm http://tikibaroc.com
October 23: West Hollywood, California-The Whisky, 7pm http://www.whiskyagogo.com/site/
October 28: Sacramento, California-The Boardwalk, 7pm http://www.theboardwalkpresents.com/
October 29: Reno, Nevada-Rock Bar http://rockbartheater.com/
October 30: Las Vegas, Nevada-Vamp'd http://www.vampdvegas.com/

Vivian Campbell says, "We're thrilled and humbled by the reaction the ‘Heavy Crown’ album has gotten and in due course we look forward to playing more shows across the entire U.S. as schedule and resources permit."

Earlier this year, saw the release of the well-received, debut album from LAST IN LINE, "Heavy Crown." The album landed at #1 on the Billboard Heatseeker Chart, #6 on the Hard Rock albums chart and #22 on the Top Rock chart.

What started as a casual and fun reunion jam in a Los Angeles rehearsal room in 2011 has grown into a fully-fledged recording project that has taken on a life of its own. LAST IN LINE, the band, takes its name from the second DIO album released in 1984. Vinny Appice, Jimmy Bain and Vivian Campbell were Ronnie Dio’s co-conspirators and co-writers on the Holy Diver, Last In Line and Sacred Heart albums records that defined the classsic early Dio sound and became a part of rock history.

Appice stated that LAST IN LINE would be playing more dates during late 2016 and 2017 as Campbell’s Def Leppard duties eased off. He also praised LAST IN LINE's live performances, saying: "The band kicks ass. It's so much fun to play together. We have a great time on and off the stage. It's just a real pleasure playing, especially with Viv again. We're not doing this to try to make money; we're doing this because we want do it. And Viv is totally enjoying playing this stuff and revisiting his old solos. With the addition of Phil and Erik we have become a powerhouse again.”

Phil Soussan, who is the heir to the late Jimmy Bain’s place in the band, says: “It is such a thrill to be playing with LAST IN LINE. Jimmy and I were not only bass players in ‘sister’ bands but also longtime friends. I am proud to be able to do him justice and to pay tribute to his legacy. In fact we are all friends and former bandmates. Vinny keeps me on ‘10’ and we bring the thunder.  It is an honor to finally share a stage with Vivian and to reunite with Andrew who is ‘the real deal’ and Erik who brings so much texture to the music. The band just feels so right ...and heavy!”

Keyboard Virtuoso, Erik Norlander also weighs in: "Vinny and Phil are an absolutely thunderous rhythm section that is truly genre defining! It’s so great to be playing with them again. Andrew is an unstoppable powerhouse vocalist and an amazing frontman. We always feel so confident going on stage with him. And, Vivian leads the charge of this mighty brigade with his unfathomably heavy virtuoso guitar work. It’s a thrill to weave my keyboard parts around his iconic riffs.”

The LAST IN LINE project has been especially significant to Vivian Campbell, who has been playing to enthusiastic audiences on tour with both DEF LEPPARD and LAST IN LINE while battling cancer. He says, "I'm pleased to report that my cancer treatments are going as well as I could hope for and that my ability to continue my work during this difficult time has given me even greater purpose in both life and work. It's been an absolute pleasure to re-connect with my old friends and our past musical legacy and to build upon that with Andrew on the ‘Heavy Crown’ album.”

Campbell adds, “Losing Jimmy was a very bitter blow for all of us, but we will continue to honor him through performing the music he created. Jimmy would very much approve of his old friend Phil Soussan joining us to help make this happen and the addition of Erik Norlander on keys elevates the band to new musical heights. I find tremendous joy in each and every note that we play together."

VIP Packages can be purchased at the band’s official website. They include: Meet and Greet with Last In Line, VIP Souvenir Laminate, Guitar Pic Set, Group Picture with the band, Personal items autographed and Autographed Band Photo

TATE, OWENS & BAYLEY From Touring Combo TRINITY

Artist: 

ROCK FRONT MAN GEOFF TATE OF OPERATION: MINDCRIME AND FORMERLY OF QUEENSRYCHE
TO BE JOINED ON TOUR BY FORMER JUDAS PRIEST SINGER TIM "RIPPER" OWENS AND FORMER
IRON MAIDEN SINGER BLAZE BAYLEY AS THE THREE VOCALISTS COME TOGETHER AS "TRINITY"
FOR SELECT TOUR PERFORMANCES BEGINNING IN NOVEMBER
 
Come November, heavy metal fans in at least eight east coast cities will be in for a night full of hell-raising fun as three of the genre's finest vocalists -- Geoff Tate, Tim "Ripper" Owens and Blaze Bayley -- will be performing the hits from their respective bands on stage together for what is hoped to be just the beginning of several dates over the next few months.
 
Geoff Tate, who's Operation: Mindcrime will be releasing their second CD of a trilogy in September titled, Resurrection, states that the collaboration between the three first came about while recently in the studio. "We were recording a song together that will appear on the new Operation: Mindcrime album called 'Taking on the World' and immediately realized just how much fun it would be if we went out and did a couple of dates together. We want to give fans a great selection of hits and rarities along with songs we just enjoy performing... and the Trinity tour was born!"
 
The three vocalists will be backed by the same group of excellent musicians throughout the evening in a show that promises to be loaded with memorable metal for the music masses to enjoy.
 
Fans can expect to hear such songs as "Empire," "I Don't Believe in Love," "Eyes of a Stranger," "Living After Midnight," "Breaking the Law," "You've Got Another Thing Comin'," "Burn in Hell," "Man on the Edge," "The Number of the Beast" and "Run to the Hills" among others.
 
During his illustrious career, Geoff Tate has sold more than 25 million records at the helm of Queensryche, the band he fronted for 30 years from their inception through 2012, earning three Grammy nominations, five MTV Music Video Award nominations, and one MTV Music Video Award along the way. The landmark concept album Operation: Mindcrime thrust Tate's unique social consciousness, style and expertly crafted lyrics into the national spotlight in 1988, and was followed by Empire in 1990, the album that delivered Queensryche to arena-headlining status and sold more than three million albums on the back of hit singles and radio staples "Silent Lucidity" and "Jet City Woman." By the time the band released Promised Land in 1994, Geoff Tate was universally acknowledged as one of the greatest frontmen in rock and metal, and a driving force behind one of the most innovative bands in mainstream music. In September of 2015, his new band, Operation: Mindcrime released its debut effort titled, The Key, which examined what one might do if they discovered "the key" to changing the way we view the world, the way we look at time, the way we travel and could essentially change the human condition... for better or for release. The band successfully toured for months in support of the project and looks forward to their forthcoming release, Resurrection (via Frontiers Music Srl), this September.
 
Tim "Ripper" Owens first gained worldwide attention and acclaim when he joined Judas Priest as their lead singer in 1996. During his stint with Judas Priest, he recorded two studio albums and two live albums. The song "Bullet Train" -- which featured his incredible vocals -- was nominated for a Grammy award in 1999 in the category of Best Metal Performance. He subsequently went on to join Iced Earth and currently performs with such bands as Beyond Fear, Yngwie Malmsteen's Rising Force and Charred Walls of the Damned.
 
Blaze Bayley joined Iron Maiden in 1993 after the departure of Bruce Dickinson and remained the band's singer until Dickinson's return in 1999. Bayley, who had started his career in the mid-80's as the vocalist of Wolfsbane, recorded two albums with Iron Maiden before starting his own band, Blaze. In May of 2000, the band would release their debut album titled, Silicon Messiah, and would go on to put out two other albums. In more recent years, he's concentrated on solo projects.
 
Geoff Tate, Tim "Ripper" Owens and Blaze Bayley... not one, not two, but all three!
 
Three of the most well-respected metal singers from three of the most well-respected metal bands, together on stage in November!
 
Tickets for all eight confirmed shows (see below) are now on sale.

RICHIE Sambora and girlfriend Orianthi will tour Australia together next month.
 
The pair, who perform as RSO, will play songs from Sambora’s time in Bon Jovi as well as his solo material.

ROCKINGHAM 2016 On Sale Now

 
STANDING ON TOP OF THE ROCK-INGHAM
 
Press Release: "Hey we're back, I heard you missed us? A different venue, less bands but no dip in quality is what Rockingham is offering this year. After last year’s successful weekend, plans were put in motion to deliver more of the same AOR goodness as organizer, Dave Herron, explains, “Following on from the incredible feedback from our 2015 event we have decided to make Rockingham a more permanent part of the UK festival scene.”
 
It’s all set to take place over the weekend of the 21st to 23rd of October, at Nottingham’s Trent University – a mere stones throw from last year’s venue.
With the likes of Trixter, Steelheart and Kevin Chalfant headlining over the three days, a stellar line up has been added to augment an already impressive top of the bill. 
At least five of these acts have never played in the UK before, with the likes of Lionheart and Lee Aaron having never set foot on a UK stage since the eighties. 
With the new blood being ably represented by the likes of Art Nation, Blood Red Saints, Angels Or Kings and Stone Broken, Rockingham is covering all the bases. 
This promises to be a wonderful weekend of AOR
 
LINE UP FOR THE WEEKEND
 
Kevin Chalfant
So where do you start with Mr. Chalfant? That he should have got the job in Journey, possibly. Or that he recorded one of the finest AOR albums of the nineties with the Storm, maybe. Perhaps we should just say that he possesses one of the finest AOR voices to ever grace the genre, so you can expect a set stuffed to the brim with quality moments from a distinguished career.
 
Jean Beauvoir
Now here's a man that could possibly be one of the coolest to ever strap on a guitar. His tenure with Crown Of Thorns is legendary, their debut being one of the finest albums he's appeared on. Having worked with Kiss, The Plasmatics and Little Steven amongst many others, he's guaranteed to get everybody on their feet. Are you ready?
 
Blood Red Saints
Having delivered one of the finest debuts of last year, Blood Red Saints will need no introduction. Gigs with the likes of Romeo's Daughter and Hand Of Dimes have shown them to be capable of delivering live what they put down in the studio. With a collective pool of talent that has seen them appear with the likes of Sam Thunder, Angels Or Kings, Gary Hughes, In Faith , The Shock, Lost Weekend and Newman, the Saints are the pride of the U.K.
 
The Poodles
Canine capers from Jakob Samuel and company is always a good way to spend your afternoon. Over the years they've produced several quality moments, garnering plaudits from far and wide. This is Scandinavian AOR at its most bombastic and fierce, so bring a muzzle as this dog bites.
 
Art Nation
Formed from the ashes of Diamond Dawn, Art Nation released one of the finest albums from last year, which saw critics liken them to a junior version of H.E.A.T. It's not gone unnoticed as Music giants Gain have recently snapped them up for a lucrative deal. So expect a highly charged set of fist pumping, anthemic AOR.
 
Lionheart
This was a shock addition to the bill, but a very welcome one. Having dispensed one of the finest UK pomp rock albums of the eighties, Lionheart toured with the likes of Def Leppard to rave reviews. Their brand of AOR is laced with luscious harmonies, biting guitars and surging keyboards. With ex Iron Maiden alumni, Derek Stratton, at the helm, the results should be breathtaking.
 
The Defiants
Let's cut to the chase here, the Defiants have made one of the best albums of this year pure and simple. Then again what did you expect from people that have plied their trade in Danger Danger, a band that are not shy of a hook or three. Between them, Bruno Ravel, Rob Marcello and Paul Laine have knocked it out of the park. Their recent performance in Milan is spoken of in hushed, revered tones, a true 'I was there moment'. Theirs is the sound of the eighties, amplified and cranked to eleven. Party on, dudes.
 
Trixter
Next to the Defiants, Trixter are another band born out of the eighties hair metal boom. Their brace of albums were lauded from far and wide, giving them gold records and stateside tours with the likes of Stryper and Kiss. Having reunited in 2008, they've since released two new albums, playing several prestigious gigs along the way. Another band that tore Milan apart, they're guaranteed to give it to you good.
 
Crazy Lixx
Bringing the Glam to Rockingham, Crazy Lixx will be riding into town on the back of several well received albums. This year’s live album is the perfect starting point to help you understand what the Lixx are all about. They'll push the button marked instant party, so get ready for these Revlon rebels to bring the mascara mayhem.
 
Stone Broken
A hot hard rock band from Walsall, surely some mistake? Nope, Stone Broken has gifted the world a hard hitting debut that has seen the plaudits arriving their way by the truckload. For most they'll be an unknown quantity, but after this weekend they've the potential to be everybody's favourite new band.
 
From The Fire
After a fabulous sophomore album, albeit twenty years later, and a wonderful debut UK performance in the same year, From The Fire were once again the band on all AORsters lips. Led by the core trio of J.D. Kelly, Tommy Lafferty and Michael Sciotto, From The Fire are an old school AOR fans wet dream. They were a little ring rusty last time out in the UK, this time they'll return like champion prize fighters.
 
Lee Aaron
The Metal Queen back in the UK for the first time since the eighties is enough to make you dust of those old red spandex pants in honour of the fact. The Canadian chanteuse will stir the loins of every red blooded male, and female, with a rollicking dose of maple leaf mayhem. An award winning artist, Aaron is another coup for Rockingham.
 
Alessandro Del Vecchio Band
The little man with the big voice, Alessandro Del Vecchio should be no stranger to AOR fans the world over. He's appeared with the likes of Jim Peterik, Mitch Malloy and Axe amongst many others. With Nigel Bailey helping out, this could be one of the surprise packages of the weekend.
 
Angels Or Kings
Born in the eighties, this critically acclaimed UK AOR band were resurrected in the new millennium, releasing an album that generated rave reviews the world over. Currently preparing their sophomore release, the Kings will be one of the most eagerly anticipated bands of the weekend.
 
Steelheart
Fronted by Miljenko Matijevic, Steelheart were MTV darlings, an admittedly brief tenure with the media giant, before Grunge swept all before it. Releasing a brace of albums at the peak of their popularity, they were a chart bothering behemoth whose candle was snuffed out all too early. Sporadic activity over the years has seen Matjevic as the sole remaining member. These boys have set the excitement factor to eleven, so get ready to stand up and shout.
 
Fortune
A bucket list moment for an awful lot of AORsters, this promises to be an unmissable set. With Richard Fortune, Larry Greene and Mick Fortune on board, you can expect their debut album to be played in almost its entirety. Don't be surprised if the roof is lifted when the likes of "Dearborn Station" and "Thrill Of It All" are played, this promises to be a keyboard fans dream gig.
 
Martina Edoff
Returning to the UK for the second time this year, Martina Edoff's brand of highly energized hard rock will set the afternoon alight. With a band that includes members of Skintrade, Last Autumn’s Dream and H.E.A.T, they've the pedigree to make sure a blistering set of hard rock is on the menu.
 
Valentine
Returning after his show stealing performance at the inaugural Rockingham festival, Robby Valentine is sure to be one of the most grandiose sets of the entire weekend. The pomp factor will be high and the keyboard quota off the scale, making this a symphonic delight for all in attendance.
 
I think you’ll all agree that Rockingham Festivals AOR credentials have been fully endorsed by having such an array of talent on show. Fans and ticket buyers would also be wise to watch out for announcements of official pre and after shows in the coming months via the festivals Facebook page.

he will play the Art is: charity event in Montana and on July 18, he will travel to Troyan for the Rock Academy
Turner has always been committed to helping out many charitable organizations. He is especially passionate about
the National Commission for Combating Traffic of Human Beings, the foundation that will benefit from the 5th
Anniversary of the Art is festival. This organization is dedicated to the cause of combatting the sale of
children/women in the region and all over the world. Turner is devoted to helping this cause as he believes that such
criminal activity is unacceptable and is absolutely contrary to human rights. He wants to bring awareness to this cause
with the hope that more young people will learn how to protect themselves from such criminal attempts. The theme
for the Art is: festival will be, The Children of Montana together on the stage with Joe Lynn Turner.
 
This free event is organized by Nelian Nikolova. The show starts at 6pm, July 17, at the Main Square of Montana-
Jeravica Stage. Turner’s performance begins at 9pm.
National Commission for Combating Traffic of Human Beings:
 
Municipality of Montana:
 
Troyan is located in northern Bulgaria in the foothills of the Balkan Mountains, founded as an ancient Thracian
settlement in the road that connects South Bulgaria with North Bulgaria. The Troyan region is a preferred destination
for those interested in hot springs and is also the access point to the Central Balkan National Park, where there are
many hiking trails.. The Rock Academy event takes place at 8:30pm, July 18, in the Main Square.
 
Turner always cherishes his time in Bulgaria. He says, I can’t even tell you how many times that I have been here.
The people are amazing, they love rock’n’roll, they are passionate. They are great people in their soul, they are
wonderful! I am so thankful for the people of Bulgaria and the opportunity to perform here.
 
Joe Lynn Turner “Biography-in Brief”:
In a career spans over 70 album credits, Turner (JLT) is best remembered for his work with Ritchie Blackmore in
Rainbow and Deep Purple. When Blackmore decided to focus on expanding Rainbow's audience, he employed JLT.
Turner's talent for writing radio-friendly rock hits, combined with his stage appeal, vocal range and ability to sing a
variety of songs, helped catapult Rainbow to a higher level of commercial success. In the late 80s, he revived the
career of another guitar virtuoso, Yngwie Malmsteen. In 1990, he reunited with Blackmore and joined Deep Purple.
Fans continue to demand to hear his distinctive, soulful, bluesy rock voice and he’s never stopped writing, recording
or performing. His discography features over ten solo CDs and a bevy of lead vocal work on several other projects.
Turner has toured, recorded and performed with a diverse array of artists including Billy Joel, Cher, ACDC's Brian
Johnson, Mick Jones (Foreigner), Michael Bolton, Glenn Hughes (Deep Purple) and more.
 
His latest CD release is SUNSTORM “Edge of Tomorrow.” SUNSTORM is Joe Lynn Turner's successful AOR/melodic
rock project, something that came about for the first time in 2006 when Frontiers Records’ president Serafino
Perugino, wanted to dig up some unreleased gems that Turner wrote during the late '80s and early '90s. He recently
traveled to Vikos Gorge in northern Greece to film a spectacular video for the title track from the new CD.

Stockholm Rocks 2016 - July Event To Feature REACH, JOE LYNN TURNER, DYNAZTY


Stockholm Rocks again - new event already in July 2016 - Friday 22 and Saturday 23;

With four Stockholm Rocks events completed and the steady growth of interest we have decided to host a 5th edition in the middle of summer ' Stockholm Rocks Summerfest on July 22nd-23rd. We are picking up where V'sby Rocks unfortunately had to call it a day. So, the artists are in the same vein, melodic rock, but maybe a bit more towards the heavier side. We also would like to promote young bands who are bringing the tradition into the future, but of course also celebrate some household great musicians who has been making ear candy for the last 30-or-so years. We are proud to present:

Joe Lynn Turner, legendary singer with a past in Rainbow, Yngwie Malmsteen and Deep Purple but not to miss his own material ' a new album was released in May ' check out Sunstorm

Santa Cruz, four young Finnish rockers with attitude and loads of guitar. They recently toured UK and now they have been in the US since April. A new single was released the other day

Erik Gronwall, the voice of H.E.A.T, will be making a special appearance and playing an acoustic gig together with band colleague Jonah T. The set will consist of H.E.A.T material and his rock favourites

Iron Savior, German power metallers who has been giving us a good headbanging with 10 albums for the last 20 years. Loads of guitar and a steady beat ' the latest album Titancraft is reaching the stores this week

Dynazty, introduced to the Swedish audience at a local Eurovision event making a metal version of a winner. With their 5th album they have moved on and bring us melodic metal ' Titanic Mass

Reach, had already getting attention with making a rock cover of Avicii's hit 'Wake me up'. Then Ludvig Turner brought rock into the Swedish Idol contest, recorded their debut album and played 30 gigs in UK and throughout Europe last year. With hooks from the 80's mixed with youthful energy they want to 'Reach out to Rock' even further now

Hysterica, four young ladies who put a lot of effort into making their shows a musical and visual experience. Two albums and an EP full of heavy metal they will kick some ass - and with the latest single 'Ease my mind' they also show a soft side ' but only a little

ADOPT THE ARTS
 (adoptthearts.org)--a Los Angeles-based charity co-founded by musician Matt Sorum and activist Abby Berman, and actively supported by artists like actress Jane Lynch (founding board member)--works to preserve arts programs in U.S. public schools.  To raise awareness, ADOPT THE ARTS honors individuals who've had a long-lasting impact on music culture and who inspire young musicians to follow in their footsteps. The ADOPT THE ARTS advisory board includes: SLASH, JOHN STAMOS, BILLY BOB THORTON, STEVE STEVENS, JULIETTE LEWIS, DANNY MASTERSON, SHEPARD FAIREY, ADRIAN YOUNG and GINA GERSHON.
 
According to Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD), there are still not enough teachers, equipment or instruments for every child to receive an arts education of any kind.  As in many school districts around the country, LAUSD has been slowly eroding its commitment to arts education, reducing the budget incrementally.  The LAUSD district also estimates that 80% of its student body is living at or below the poverty line, which means the vast majority of these elementary school children will not have access to the arts outside of school.
 
"Adopt the Arts was born out of the frustration for my own children losing education in the arts," explains ADOPT THE ARTS co-founder Abby Berman. "When the system is failing, we have to take action.  With influential people like my co-founder Matt Sorum adopting schools, we can preserve this valuable component to childhood development, which is also known to boost test scores.  Because Federal and State funding is falling short, the responsibility is upon us as concerned parents and citizens to ensure we're raising a new generation of healthy and well-rounded individuals."
 
ADOPT THE ARTS Chair and Co-founder Matt Sorum adds, "We're starting in our own backyard here in Los Angeles, and we'll continue to adopt schools across the nation.  We believe that music and art are universal and necessary languages that unite us all, regardless of our backgrounds."
 
Ticket prices for the ADOPT THE ARTS event are below and all donations are tax deductible:
 
1)   General: $40 (standing room only)
2)   General: $75 (seated)

QUEENSRYCHE Announce 2016 Australian Tour

Artist: 

 
American Progressive Metal Legends, QUEENSRYCHE return to Australia for their first tour in nearly a decade thanks to Tombowler www.tombowler.com.au + Metropolis Touring www.metropolistouring.com + David Roy Williams
 
Having sold over 30 million albums around the world over the course of their storied 30-plus-year career, QUEENSRYCHE triumphant legacy of progressive metal classics is one of the most celebrated in hard rock and heavy metal and the band's revitalised line up has consistently delivered high-octane live shows combining the hungry fire of a new band with the tempered experience of master showmen.
 
QUEENSRYCHE's critically acclaimed new offering, 'Condition H'man", sees vocalist Todd LaTorre deliver the performance of a lifetime on what is his sophomore album with the band, cementing his status as the only frontman with the pipes and presentation to front a QUEENSRYCHE that delivers the high octane metal swagger fans have been longing for.
 
QUEENSRYCHE first burst onto the music scene in 1982 and very quickly gained international recognition and performed to sold out audiences around the world. With 'The Warning' in 1984, and the ground breaking 1986 release of 'Rage For Order' QUEENSRYCHE continued to prove their worldwide dominance as one of the most respected and creative bands of the 80's. In 1988 the band turned out yet another monumental album 'Operation:Mindcrime', which would go on to become one of the best selling concept records of all time, setting the stage for sold out performances across the globe. With the release of the critically acclaimed and commercially successful "Empire" in 1991, the band earned multiple Grammy Award nominations and won the MTV "Viewer's Choice" award for the #1 chart topping hit "Silent Lucidity". Since recruiting singer Todd LaTorre in 2012, the band has gone on to release two acclaimed 'comeback' albums and perform hundreds of shows featuring crowd pleasing setlists of fan favourite anthems and old school classics - many of which have not been performed live since the 1980s!
 
QUEENSRYCHE have built a dedicated legion of fans through relentless global touring. In recent years, the fully revitalized QUEENSRYCHE is in the throes of a jaw-dropping creative resurgence that demands to be seen live in concert. Having recently completed a stadium tour of the USA with the Scorpions, the band is in outstanding form as they prepare for their Australian tour!
 
Get ready for a set of QUEENSRYCHE classics performed with power, passion and precision like never before!
 
QUOTES:
 
'the La Torre fronted version of the band is all too happy to give the crowd what they want - a set consisting almost entirely of the band's prime-era material.' - www.chicagonow.com
'There is no question that LaTorre stole the show with his impeccable singing and screams.' ' www.sleazeroxx.com 
'Everything about the show was excellent, the tone, tempo, pacing, track sequence, all of it was done very well by these profession veterans.' - www.metal-rules.com
'The set-list was fantastic for an old-school QR fan like myself.' - www.metal-rules.com
 
Queensryche Australian Tour Dates:

Tuesday 11th October - BRISBANE, The Triffid
Thursday 13th October - ADELAIDE, Fowlers Live

YES to Tour 'Drama' and 'Fragile' Albums in Europe

Artist: 
YES TO TOUR FRAGILE AND DRAMA

IN UK AND EUROPE IN APRIL

 
Seminal prog pioneers YES hit the road for an extensive UK and European tour at the end of this month…. April 2016. The band will be performing 1971’s ‘Fragile’ and 1980’s ‘Drama’ in their entirety, the latter for the very first time, plus other seminal tracks including ‘Owner of a Lonely Heart’ and ‘Starship Trooper’.

 
Warners has recently released all of their catalogue YES albums Mastered For iTunes.  These include The Yes Album, Fragile, Going For The One, Time and a Word, Yes, 90125, Tales From  Topographic Oceans and Drama. You can buy them from http://geni.us/YESMFiT.   They will also re-release Drama on Vinyl LP on 22nd April.  The Vinyl LP of Fragile will follow shortly after that.

 
‘Most of the songs haven’t been performed in some 30 years’ - said Steve Howe. ‘Fragile and Drama mark two essential chapters of our career and we’re looking forward to share the whole journeys with our fans throughout Europe’. ‘Reliving those years will be very emotional’ - adds drummer Alan White - ‘I know Chris would have loved to be here with us for this’.

 
YES has recently lost bassist and co-founder Chris Squire, a tragedy that left the prog world in mourning. His replacement Billy Sherwood found a big pair of shoes to fill, as YES set out to honour his memory by keeping the band’s legacy alive. The band recently toured the US tour with fellow prog legends Toto to an enthusiastic reception.

 
YES was founded by Chris Squire and Jon Anderson in 1968. Characterized by a unique, prog symphonic style of rock music, lengthy compositions and the use of mystical and cosmic lyrics, the band found success in 1971 with two of the band’s most celebrated records, ‘The YES Album’ and ‘Fragile’. The band went on to record 21 albums and win several prestigious awards including Grammys.  Yes is recognized as one of the most influential icons in prog rock.

 
Still as relevant today as they were in the 70s, YES has maintained a loyal following while constantly attracting new crowds of music fans throughout 47 years of outstanding career. With ‘Fragile’ and ‘Drama’ representing two essential moments of the band’s history, it will be an opportunity for all to rediscover some undisputed gems of the genre.

LEGENDARY VOICES OF ROCK TO TOUR AUSTRALIA!
 
Legendary golfer Jan Stephenson is proud to announce the Legendary Voices of Rock tour featuring the music of Journey and Kansas with Journey’s lead singer Steve Augeri and Kansas’s lead singer Robby Steinhardt. Steve Augeri will be singing Journey’s greatest hits such as “Any Way You Want It” and “Don’t Stop Believing” while Robby Steinhardt will be playing his iconic violin and performing Kansas hits such as “Carry on Wayward Son” and “Dust in The Wind”. Tour dates and ticket info available at www.janstephensonevents.com
 
The Legendary Voices of Rock show is two hours long and will visit Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne and Hobart and various cities in between including Tweed Heads, Armidale, Port Macquarie, Newcastle and the Central Coast.
 
The Legendary Voices of Rock is presented by champion Australian professional golfer Jan Stephenson. Jan Stephenson has been presenting tours throughout the states, and this is the first time she is doing it in Australia! “I am so excited to bring these American treasures to Australia, the Legendary Voices of Rock tour is going to be an incredible time for people of all ages,” says Jan Stephenson.
 
Steve Augeri is an American rock singer best known as the lead vocalist for the rock group Journey from 1998 to 2006. Steve recorded three albums during a successful eight-year tenure that brought the world’s most accomplished melodic rock group back to the stage for multiple world tours to millions of fans, most notably for the songs “Anyway You Want It” and “ Don’t Stop Believing” which are still popular today, used in shows like Glee and movies like Charlies Angels.
 
Robby Steinhardt is best known as the rock violinist and singer for the group Kansas, to which he was the front man and co-lead singer along with keyboardist Steve Walsh, from 1973–1982 and 1997–2006. Steinhardt's violin sound, and its interplay with the guitar and keyboards, defined the Kansas sound. His lead vocals provided a contrast to the high tenor of singer Steve Walsh and the two often played off each other and sang in harmony, with Steinhardt sometimes taking the lower scale, but also holding the high notes in songs such as “Cheyenne Anthem” as well as the spine tingling scream during “Portrait (he knew)”.
 
Stormbringer will back both Steve and Robby. The band effortlessly delivers air tight renditions of hit songs like Queen's ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’, Pink Floyd's ‘The Wall’ and Bon Jovi's ‘Livin' on a Prayer’. Possessing a rockin' catalogue of non-stop party and dance songs, the band provides crowd pleasing music to perfectly match any large event. Stormbringer features soaring lead vocals, crisp four-part harmonies, thunderous drums, dramatic keyboards and crunching guitars in their hundred-plus song repertoire.
 
The Legendary Voices of Rock will play 13 shows. VIP tickets include a pre show reception hosted by Jan Stephenson and a meet and greet and photo with the stars, plus an autographed poster.

BLACK SABBATH Wraps Up Leg One of 'The End' Tour

Artist: 
BLACK SABBATH
WRAP LEG ONE OF
"THE END" WORLD TOUR
 
SECOND RUN OF NORTH AMERICAN DATES
TO GET UNDERWAY AUGUST 17 AT
NIKON AT JONES BEACH THEATER
IN WANTAGH, NY
 
 
Ozzy Osbourne (Vocals), Tony Iommi (Guitar) and Geezer Butler (Bass) wrapped the first dates of BLACK SABBATH's massive 2016 THE END world tour last week (3/7) in Vancouver, BC to an overwhelming response, from fans and critics alike.  The first leg of sold-out North American shows will be followed by a run of summer performances including return visits to Los Angeles (at the iconic Hollywood Bowl), New York, Chicago and 14 additional cities.  Tickets for the summer shows are available at www.Livenation.com.  See BLACK SABBATH's world wide itinerary below. 
 
Here's some critical feedback from 2016's THE END tour:
 
"From the pulverizing opening tritone of 'Black Sabbath'...the show was more a celebration of the pioneering heavy-metal band's legacy than an epitaph...each of the musicians was in stellar form in Chicago...now may be the beginning of the end for Black Sabbath, but, as they proved in Chicago and over the years, their music will echo through the ages."
--Kory Grow, ROLLINGSTONE.COM, 1-23-16
 
"The beginning of The End happened Friday in Chicago at the United Center, where the band played a two-hour set of snarling hard rock songs, played according to the rules of strict minimalism but always with brawny execution...Black Sabbath remains a genre of its own, combining space jazz and prog-rock, gothic imagery and riff-heavy thunder."
--Mark Guarino, THEGUARDIAN.COM, 1-23-16
 
"The iconic rockers were able to bid farewell in style...If this was truly the band's last show in Washington, the quartet had left its fans with a night they'll never forget."
--Ernest Jasmin,TACOMA WEEKLY, 2-8-16
 
"Sabbath sounded so strong that, at times, it seemed like an absolutely ludicrous idea for these guys to even be thinking about hanging it up. Yet, if the goal is to go out on top--in peak fighting form--then Sabbath is right on track."
--Jim Harrington, SAN JOSE MERCURY NEWS, 2-10-16
 
"Osbourne was confidently strutting the length of the stage, imploring the audience to clap along...Osbourne led the band through classics like 'War Pigs' and 'Children of the Grave,' exuding bravado and, often, joy.  The night didn't belong to Ozzy, though. While bassist Geezer Butler remains rock-solid...Iommi's effortless leads and power-chord riffs laid the groundwork for generations of hard-rocking axe-slingers, yet his attack still sounds fresh and resonant, and his vibrato-laden shreds are as precise as they were four decades ago..."
--Jeff Miller, BILLBOARD.com, 2-13-16
 
"Black Sabbath put on as perfect of a farewell show at the Pepsi Center [in Denver] as you could have hoped for. They played, sounded and yes, sung as well as they did in their prime...Instead of leaning on theatrics, they let tight riffs take the audience away...Their astonishing performance Monday night proved the band to be going out with remarkable live chops."
--Mike Long, DENVER POST, 2-16-16
 
"One of the strongest live rock shows in recent memory...Sabbath performed the music with such power and conviction that songs many of us have heard ad nauseam seemed fresh and new...The fluid rhythms, the interlocking, crushing dynamics between the rhythm section, and Iommi and Osbourne's uncanny ability to switch in and out of the role of avatar of doom and avuncular hype man, rousing the crowd, made for a show that was much more than merely a great performance. It felt inclusive."
--Tom Murphy, WESTWORD(Denver, CO), 2-16-16
 
"Black Sabbath turned its The End farewell tour into a celebration--albeit one steeped in a little bit of Satanic mechanics...the 100-minute, 14-song show was standard issue Sabbath--Spartan and leaden hard rock played with tight precision."
--Gary Graff, THE OAKLAND PRESS (Detroit, MI), 2-20-16
 
"Black Sabbath, from Birmingham, England, was foundational for metal, but the music it played on Thursday--all of it recorded between 1969 and 1976--is full of scales related to the blues, which has its own long tradition of despair masking joy. That joy on Thursday was in sound and feeling. You could hear the band in giant, clear, present detail, unusual for the Garden..."
Ben Ratliff, NEW YORK TIMES, 2-26-16
 
"...he [Osbourne] was on fire last night, hitting all the notes exactly the way you remember them. All the stretched out vowels, all the 'ohh yeahh!'s, everything. In even finer form was Tony Iommi, whose riffs were as crisp today as they are on the early records, and whose solos still screamed. No disrespect to Geezer Butler of course, who shined all night and especially on his bass solo in 'N.I.B.'...There really wasn't a moment where you weren't hearing some of the best heavy metal ever written...The show was also a serious reminder of how even with legions of excellent doom bands popping up for decades, still nobody can do it like Sabbath."
--Andrew Sacher, BROOKLYN VEGAN, 2-27-16
 
"If this in fact was the end for Black Sabbath, then it was one hell of a farewell."
--Dean Pilling, CALGARY SUN, 3-5-16
 
"Black Sabbath were magnificent...what sets Black Sabbath's music apart is how fresh it still sounds...a night free of stage effects or gimmicks, packed with a selection of brilliantly performed songs from the best heavy metal band there ever was and ever will be."
Robert Collins, CTV NEWS VANCOUVER, 3-8-16
 
These dates mark the end of the epic journey that BLACK SABBATH began nearly five decades ago.  The massive 2016 THE END world tour by the greatest Metal Band of all time will take the band to Australia and New Zealand in April, then Europe fora mix of summer headlining and festival performances, before returning to North America in August.
 
As previously announced, a special fans-only CD featuring original artwork by Shepard Fairey/Obey Giant is being sold at shows along the tour route.  The CD is comprised of eight previously unreleased tracks: four songs are outtakes from BLACK SABBATH's worldwide #1, Grammy Award-winning album 13 and four live songs from the band's critically acclaimed 13 World Tour.
 
When this tour concludes, it will truly be THE END, THE END of one of most legendary bands in Rock 'n Roll history...BLACK SABBATH.

Pumping out an hour of solo and H.E.A.T tracks, Erik was only too happy to jump in and help out in the wake of Mitch Malloy's withdrawal.
 
My sincere thanks goes to Erik!
 
He made only 1 request. In order to deliver a knockout set, he would need a one of his buddies to help. So please welcome H.E.A.T's own Jona Tee to MelodicRockFest! Jona will join Erik for his set and will also hang out for the weekend to meet local fans.
 
But that’s not all…
 
I’m pleased to announce that another great local band will be joining the event to headline Friday night. Fresh from their performances on national TV on Australia’s Got Talent, welcome Sisters Doll to MRF!
