Since one of Motley Crue's biggest hits is "Shout At The Devil' it only seems fitting that their upcoming residency at The Hard Rock in Vegas will be called "Evening In Hell."
The Crue, who will return to The Joint at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino for an exclusive 12 show run from September 18 through October 6, have released their promo poster for the series which fetures that theme.
The fall shows will be an all new production and The Crue looks to raise the bar on outrageous Rock n Roll shows once again.
The production will be designed exclusively for The Joint, with plenty of surprise elements and a set list full of hits.
Nikki Sixx says that they are proud to have pioneered the Las Vegas rock residency last year and can't wait to come back this year to take it over the top with a brand new show that will be unlike anything that Motley Crue has done before.
Shout at the Devil indeed.
What's the only thing better than a new Black Sabbath album with Ozzy?
A free stream in advance of the album release!
With the release of Sabbath’s much anticipated "13" album less than a week away, the entire album is now available as a free stream exclusively at the iTunes Store.
"13", which is already available as a pre-order on iTunes, has already topped the iTunes charts as the #1 Rock album and single, the #1 Metal album and single, and the #19 Overall album.
If you pre-order either the standard or the deluxe edition, that contains three additional tracks, you will immediately receive a download of the album’s first single “God is Dead?”
The album "13" will be released next Tuesday, June 11.
After nearly three decades, selling more than 38 million albums worldwide, earning 11 Grammy nominations and scoring five consecutive platinum albums, Megadeth founder Dave Mustaine premieres Megadeth’s 14th studio album "Super Collider" tomorrow.
Dave describes “Super Collider" as more about the metaphoric climax from having a good time with other people, which is comparable to those atoms colliding with one another, and the orgasmic explosion which comes after it.
Tracks on the album include “Built for War” inspired by Dave's martial arts lessons, “Off the Edge,” a song about a world gone mad, shares the album with tales about teenage pregnancy in “Beginning of Sorrow,” drug addiction in “Kingmaker”, a declining economy in “Dance in the Rain”, an arsonist in “Burn!”, betrayal in “Don’t Turn Your Back on a Friend” and even his mother-in-law battles with Alzheimer’s in “The Blackest Crow” and “Forget to Remember”.
The "Super Collider" title comes from the world’s largest and highest energy particle accelerator which allows physicists to smash atoms in the hope of discovering the origins of the Big Bang Theory and is pictured on the album cover.
As usual for a Heavy Metal dude Dave is a pretty deep thinker.
After his stint in The Beatles, Ringo Starr's solo career has kept him in the public eye with the help of his solo hit songs, "Photograph" being the biggest one.
So now Ringo is following up on "Photograph" with a book of what else?
Photographs of course!
Ringo will soon unveil a collection of previously unseen photographs of The Beatles in their glory days from his personal collection, in a new photography book due out next month.
"Photograph," which will be released as an e-book on Apple's iBookstore on June 12, will coincide with a Grammy Museum exhibit on Starr, entitled "Ringo: Peace & Love".
The book will include photographs from Ringo's childhood in Liverpool, England, to his road to fame as part of the Fab Four, with Paul McCartney, John Lennon and George Harrison.
Highlights from his one of a kind collection include behind the scenes photgraphs of The Beatles in their daily lives and Ringo's travel photography as they toured the world.
Ringo has also recorded videos featuring commentary to accompany the e-book.
A limited edition hand bound book signed by Ringo will be available for purchase in December.
Contrary to what The Who once sang about, apparently there is a cure for the summer time blues.
The return of the Rock n' Blues Fest Tour with Classic Rock/Blues Rock Legends: Ten Years After, Edgar Winter Band, Canned Heat, Rick Derringer and Pat Travers.
Edgar Winter and Rick Derringer return from last year, where they performed many a sold out show with Johnny Winter and Leslie West.
But unfortunately for Ten Years After, Alvin Lee passed away earlier this year.
Joining Ten Years After for Rock n' Blues Fest will be Edgar Winter, who has certainly met with considerable acclaim in his own right with such monster hits as "Free Ride" and "Frankenstein."
Joining the tour for the first time is Canned Heat who rose to fame because their knowledge and love of blues music was both wide and deep.
Next on the bill is rock guitarist Rick Derringer, who's had a storied career as both a solo artist and critical band member and famous for his well known rock anthem, "Rock and Roll, Hoochie Koo."
While most bluesy hard rock acts of the ‘70s and ‘80s are from the U.S.A., there were several exceptions to the rule, such as Canadian singer/guitarist Pat Travers who also joins the Rock n' Blues Fest tour for the first time.
