Inland Invasion Concert News and Tickets

August 17, 2006

Check out Inland Invasion Tickets and Guns & Roses Tickets here.

Los Angeles radio station KROQ has recruited some of rock’s heaviest hitters to anchor its sixth annual Inland Invasion festival.

On Monday evening, the station revealed that Avenged Sevenfold — fresh from their mainstage stint on this summer’s Ozzfest (which wrapped Sunday in West Palm Beach, Florida) — and Alice in Chains were among the artists opening for Guns N’ Roses at the end-of-summer event.

The Inland Invasion is set to take over Devore, California’s Hyundai Pavilion at Glen Helen on September 23.

Invasion organizers have mined rockers Papa Roach, Muse, 30 Seconds to Mars, Rise Against, Atreyu and Buckcherry to round out the bill.

Axl Rose’s Guns recently wrapped a run of European festival shows, following a string of sold-out gigs at New York’s Hammerstein Ballroom in May — the band’s first American gigs in more than three years, after their 2002 comeback tour sputtered to a halt.

The Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas will play host to Guns N’ Roses for two shows at the Joint, scheduled for September 16 and September 17. Tickets for those dates will go on sale August 19. Earlier this month, via a press release, Rose said that he plans to return to the road this fall for another round of U.S. touring.

Alice in Chains, who’ve been touring with Comes With the Fall singer William DuVall filling in for late frontman Layne Staley, hit the road back in May for a successful run of five club dates. The band unveiled plans last week for a total of 40 gigs this fall throughout the U.S., with one date in Canada. That trek gets underway September 22 in Las Vegas and runs through November 26 in San Francisco, with additional dates expected to be added over the next few weeks.

In addition to the Inland Invasion, Avenged Sevenfold have booked nine North American dates for September, with three gigs in the U.S. — September 7 in Anchorage, Alaska; September 13 in Fargo, North Dakota; and September 15 in Des Moines, Iowa — and the remainder scheduled for Canada.

Arch Enemy Ready for Gigantour

August 16, 2006

Check out Gigantour Tickets here.

An official update from Arch Enemy reads as follows:

“Yes, the DVD is out all over the world now and the reviews are glowing and more importantly, the positive feedback from the fans is HUGE!

On another note, we played our last summer festival show this year in Gothenburg on Tuesday, really cool show with a great Swedish Metal crowd and tons of family and friends backstage – a great way to end this summer!

We played a completely different kind of show in London, UK on Thursday, it was the Kerrang! Day Of Rock and it was basically an in-store type deal in the basement of the Virgin Megastore on Oxford Street. We played a brief 30 minute set and thanks to the fans that came down and supported us it was actually fun!

We’ve had a blast this summer playing the European festivals, the shows have been so cool and in some cases even AMAZING (Hello Wacken!). It’s been a real treat to meet all the Arch Enemy fans at the signing sessions of these festivals too – we love it!

So now we have a little time off from the road before we head back to the U.S. for the Gigantour – we are all really looking forward to that tour…”

As previously reported, Arch Enemy’s new double disc DVD set, Live Apocalypse, is now available just in time for the group’s return to North America on Gigantour this September. A new E-card is now available that features two videos taken from the DVD for the tracks ‘Ravenous’ and ‘My Apocalypse’, along with a new photo gallery. You can view the E-Card by clicking here.

Flaming Lips Berkeley Concert Review and Tickets

August 14, 2006

Check out Flaming Lips Tickets here.

I knew from the first note of the first song that this was gonna be the best show I had ever seen. And from there it only got better.

Years of show-going and hundreds of concerts have given me the degree of experience to assuredly say something I’ve never said before. The Flaming Lips are the best thing going in live music right now – the most inspired, most inspiring, most ridiculous, most profound, most musical, most theatrical. And their Greek Theatre show found them at their best.

You want examples? Like any moment of transcendence, it’s tough to enumerate just what made the whole thing so freakin’ wonderful. It was far more than just music, I can tell you that. But I’ll start by talking about Ween.

Still don’t get ’em. So much talent, so little to say. Some would argue they possess a Zen-like quality inherent to any totally shamelessly goofball display of virtuosity. There’s another potpourri four-piece who for years noodled goofily across genres and gained a rabid following doing so. People say it’s all about the music, or the meaning is in the meaninglessness – to “surrender to the flow,” which is fine, if that’s all you’re after. But there’s more to life than music.

Halfway through Ween’s opening set at the Greek, my friend Fi keeled over, a victim of too much heat and not enough water. We hauled her to the clinic at the side of the stage where medics immediately took care of her. She came to and was fine moments later, but there we were backstage while Ween was raging and lead Lip Wayne Coyne was watching from the wings. Another friend walked over to him and mentioned that Fi was so excited to see the Lips that she straight passed out. “Really?” he said, and then he went to where she was laying on the clinic’s cot. He knelt beside her attentively, and they spoke for a few moments until she convinced him she was fine. He left telling her to “always have fun” while Fi was astounded at how lucky she was.

Wayne Coyne gets it. Thanks to our encounter with him, it was obvious he gets it before he even stepped on stage. He’s a musician who’s concerned with more than just music. He’s a humble entertainer who orchestrates epic experiences – a celebration of music and art and life and death – so that you and I can have a singular, day-glo memory to carry around with us.

“When you go home tonight, I want you to tell your friends that I descended from the sky above the crowd in this space bubble,” Coyne said from center stage, his band behind him waiting to start the show. “It’s ok, you can lie.” It had just gotten dark and the Lips hadn’t even begun, but already Coyne was arranging the post-show story of seven thousand people at the Greek. He squeezed inside his inflated, clear plastic beach ball and wafted out over the crowd’s outstretched arms. The audience went wild as Coyne stumbled and rolled over their heads, making it back to the stage just in time for the first notes of the first song – the triumphant “Race for the Prize.” Surrounded by 25 or so of my closest friends, San Francisco lights twinkling across the Bay, perfectly cool night air wrapping it all together, I was totally sure after mere seconds: Best. Show. Eva.

Sure, the space bubble is a gimmick, like the confetti cannons, dancing Santas, smoke machines, balloons, and hand puppets. Just for a minute, you’d think maybe that would get old, watching the same set and seeing the same toys every show. Which is funny, because only music fans who (like me) have heard 50 versions of “Piper” or can articulately critique the guitar solo of “Chilly Water” – who are basically spoiled by their total immersion into musical variety – could ever think of getting bored by the Technicolor spectacle that is the Flaming Lips.

And sure, Coyne didn’t have the best singing voice and Steve Drozd didn’t take 10-minute solos, but man, their baroque wacko-pop electro-rock sounded amazing. The music incorporates a palette of sonics heard nowhere else – altered guitars, subsonic bass, gorgeous melodies. From songs about career-driven scientists, kung-fu robot killers, and alternative breakfast condiments arose the unifying themes of life overcoming death, love beating complacency, going out and doing something instead of staying home and not. The Lips sang of humanity versus larger, ambiguous menaces – a powerfully resonant modern message – and made the case that our humanity is ultimately our greatest power. “Do you realize that everyone you know someday will die?” Yeah, I’m looking around at all my friends and thousands more who do realize, right now, that this is all we have, and we realize just how good it is. And we’re all that much stronger because we do.

It’s a lot to take away from a 90-minute show, but the Lips pack in way more joy than your average band. It was nice seeing bassist Michael Ivins getting to play with some of Coyne’s toys; he donned rubber hands the size of boogie boards for the finale. I could tell you the set list, but it’s sorta irrelevant. I think the Lips would be the first ones to tell you that it was more than the music that made the night so spectacular. It was all of us in it together making a memory that’s still as bright as it was three weeks ago. I keep meeting people who were there, and we keep agreeing. If there is a modern rock ‘n’ roll hero, it’s Wayne Coyne, and if there’s gonna be a B.S.E., this is it.

Black Crowes Concerts and Tickets

August 14, 2006

Check out Black Crowes tickets here.

The Black Crowes, who last week kicked off a brief round of summer shows, continue penciling in dates for their fall headlining run.

New to the group’s schedule are a half dozen shows scattered through September and October, including an Oct. 28 performance at the second-annual Vegoose Music Festival in Las Vegas.

Meanwhile, the Crowes will cap off their current road trip tomorrow (8/12) with a performance at Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Colorado, and will then catch their breath before launching their next leg of shows Sept. 7 in Richmond, VA. Details are shown below.

Later this month, The Black Crowes will serve up “The Lost Crowes.” Scheduled for release Aug. 29 from Rhino Records, the two-disc collection comprises tracks from two albums that the group recorded but never officially released: 1993’s “Tall” and 1997’s “Band.”

Also on Aug. 29, Rhino will deliver the DVD version of “Who Killed That Bird Out on Your Window Sill,” a repackaging of a home video originally shot by the band in 1992. The disc will feature live performances, interviews, backstage and studio footage, videos from the group’s first two albums, and “additional bonus footage,” according to a press release.

The Black Crowes continue to enjoy a resurgence that began in March of last year when Chris Robinson (vocals) and Rich Robinson (guitar) resurrected the group for a multi-night stand at New York City’s Hammerstein Ballroom. Originally set for five nights, the sold-out engagement turned into a seven-night run.

The success of the Big Apple outing led to a full-blown headlining tour.

Van Morrison is the latest high-profile act tapped to support The Rolling Stones on their upcoming North American “A Bigger Bang” tour dates.

Morrison will join the Stones’ bill for the tour’s Nov. 3 stop in Vancouver, British Columbia, and will stick around for the Nov. 5 show in Oakland, CA.

The Stones continue to tour behind last year’s “A Bigger Bang,” the group’s first new studio set since 1997’s “Bridges to Babylon.” The disc debuted at No. 3 on The Billboard 200 album chart.

For the upcoming North American dates, 90% of the ticket inventory will be priced at $89 for the stadium shows and $99 for the arena shows, according to organizers, and a “limited number of Gold Circle seats” will be available as well.

Red Hot Chili Peppers Concert News and Tickets

August 12, 2006

Check out Red Hot Chili Peppers tickets here.

Following a sold out tour of Europe, an appearance at the Fuji Festival in Japan and a headlining slot at Lollapalooza, Red Hot Chili Peppers take off this Friday, August 11, for the North American leg of their World Tour in support of the platinum Stadium Arcadium.

The two-CD set, produced by Rick Rubin, debuted at #1 in 28 countries around the world, including the band’s home turf.

This week the band actually has two tracks in the Modern Rock top 10. “Dani California” at #5 has been joined by the newly issued second single “Tell Me Baby” at #10.

In other news, in the video for “Tell Me Baby,” the group’s fans will see the members of the group vying against complete unknowns in what seems to be an audition for a spot in the Chilis, according to MTV News.

The clip was helmed by Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris (Smashing Pumpkins, Weezer), the directorial team behind several Red Hot videos including “Californication,” “Otherside” and “By the Way” and the new independent film “Little Miss Sunshine.” And according to Flea, it’s “the best video of our career.” The bassist even feels the clip is “the most beautiful piece of film that has ever represented us.”

The Who Concert News and Tickets

August 10, 2006

Check out Who Tickets here.

With the launch of their North American tour just a little more than a month away, veteran Brit-rockers The Who continue adding dates to the run.

New to the band’s itinerary are a September stop in Des Moines, IA, an early November show in San Jose, CA, and a late-November return to Philadelphia, where the band kicks off the trek on Sept. 12. Tickets for the Des Moines show go on sale Saturday (8/12), while those for the new San Jose and Philly dates, as well as a previously announced second night in Los Angeles, hit the box office Monday (8/14). Details are included in the itinerary shown below.

The upcoming tour couches the Oct. 23 release of “Who 2,” the first new studio set from The Who since 1982’s “It’s Hard.”

As previously reported, surviving group founders Pete Townshend (guitar) and Roger Daltrey (vocals) have recruited drummer Zak Starkey (son of Beatles drummer Ringo Starr), guitarist/vocalist Simon Townshend (Pete’s younger brother), bassist Pino Palladino and keyboardist John “Rabbit” Bundrick to back them during the upcoming tour.

Original Who bassist John Entwistle died of a cocaine-induced heart attack in 2002 at the Hard Rock Hotel in Las Vegas, where the band was preparing for a North American tour that was scheduled to launch three days later. Daltrey and Townshend canceled the first two shows, but ultimately forged ahead with the outing.

Original drummer Keith Moon died of a drug overdose in 1978.

“This is not the old Who,” Townshend wrote in a recent diary entry posted at his website. “We never said it would be. It is something else. It matters.”

Alice in Chains Fall Tour News and Tickets

August 9, 2006

Check out Alice in Chains Tickets here.

With a successful six-city club trek now in the books, Alice in Chains has unveiled plans for a large-scale comeback tour.

The club tour–which featured Jerry Cantrell (guitar/vocals), Sean Kinney (drums) and Mike Inez (bass)–marked Alice in Chains’ first outing in more than a decade. Handling lead vocals was William Duvall of Atlanta-based rock trio Comes With the Fall, who had worked with Cantrell during some of the guitarist’s solo outings. Duvall will be back for the fall dates.

Original Alice in Chains frontman Layne Staley died four years ago of a drug overdose; Inez joined the band in 1993, replacing original bassist Mike Starr.

Fans in need of a crash-course in Alice in Chains can turn to the forthcoming album “The Essential Alice in Chains,” due in stores Sept. 5. The two-CD set features 28 tracks culled from all four of the band’s studio albums, as well as their two EPs and their live “MTV Unplugged” set. Rounding out the set are two tracks that appeared on the “Last Action Hero” soundtrack album.

Alice in Chains formed in Seattle during the late ’80s, and released their debut album, “Facelift,” in 1990. The disc spawned the group’s breakthrough hit, “Man in the Box,” and secured the band’s place in the pantheon of early ’90s Seattle-based acts–which also included Nirvana, Pearl Jam and Soundgarden–credited with ushering in the grunge scene.

Alice in Chains went on to release two additional full-length albums (1992’s “Dirt” and 1995’s “Alice in Chains) and two EPs (1992’s “Sap” and 1994’s “Jar of Flies”).

Following its ’92/’93 touring cycle in support of “Dirt,” the group did not tour behind any of its subsequent releases–reportedly due to Staley’s addiction–but did give a 1996 performance on “MTV’s Unplugged,” which was released in album form later that same year. The group also filled the opening slot on the first four dates of KISS’ 1996 reunion tour.

Even as the veteran rockers continue to line up opening acts, The Rolling Stones upcoming North American itinerary has been expanded to include a Sept. 29 stop at Louisville, KY’s Churchill Downs.

“As home to the Kentucky Derby, Churchill Downs has treated horse racing fans to the ‘Greatest Two Minutes in Sports’ for 132 years,’ racetrack president Steve Sexton said in a press release. “So it is truly appropriate for the world’s most legendary racetrack to host one of the world’s most legendary rock bands.”

Tickets for the Churchill Downs show will go on sale to the general public on Aug. 14, according to organizers.

Meanwhile, the Stones continue to name new support acts for their upcoming gigs: Alice Cooper and Sloan (tickets | music) will join previously announced opener Kanye West (tickets | music) during the Stones’ appearance in Halifax, Nova Scotia; Three Days Grace (tickets | music) will open both of the Stones’ gigs in Regina, Saskatchewan; and the Dave Mathews Band will support on the tour’s El Paso, TX, stop.

The Stones continue to tour behind last year’s “A Bigger Bang,” the group’s first new studio set since 1997’s “Bridges to Babylon.” The disc debuted at No. 3 on The Billboard 200 album chart.
