RIDE FOR RONNIE: Steven Adler, Gilby Clarke, Lita Ford, Jeff Pilson, Sons of Anarchy’s Emilio Rivera and More Join 3rd Annual Motorcycle Rally & Concert

Pin It

The 3rd annual RIDE FOR RONNIE Motorcycle Rally and Concert, benefitting the Ronnie James Dio Stand Up and Shout Cancer Fund, is set for Sunday, May 7, 2017, comprising a Motorcycle Ride through the streets of Los Angeles County and an afternoon of live music.  Last year’s RIDE FOR RONNIE event raised over $50,000 for the cancer charity.

Riders will assemble at Harley-Davidson of Glendale with kickstands up at 11AM. Among those expected to join Dio Cancer Fund co-founder and president Wendy Dio and the cavalcade of motorcycle riders are rockers Lita Ford, Gilby Clarke (former Guns N’ Roses guitarist), Sean McNabb (Lynch Mob), Taime Downe (Faster Pussycat) and Xavier Muriel (Buckcherry) plus actors Chris Bruno (The Dead Zone) and Sons of Anarchy‘s Emilio Rivera, Rusty Coones and Star Fields.

Gates at Los Encinos Park in Encino will open at 11:30AM for the concert portion of the event, featuring live entertainment provided by rockers LYNCH MOB, EDDIE MONEY, ROUGH CUTT, DIO DISCIPLES , THE LOVELESS, SONIA HARLEY and NO SMALL CHILDREN. Radio personality EDDIE TRUNK will handle hosting duties at the event, which will also include a raffle, silent and live auctions, food trucks, merchandise vendors and more. Lita Ford, Alex Grossi (Quiet Riot guitarist), Jeff Pilson (Foreigner and former Dio guitarist), Marc Ferrari (Cold Sweat) and Marty O’Brien (Lita Ford) will be on hand for the concert festivities.

Guns N’ Roses drummer Steven Adler is currently organizing players for an all-star jam, with more details set to be announced soon.

A donation of $25,000 will be presented to Dr. David Wong of the UCLA School of Dentistry to help fund his team’s research into the development of a simple, non-invasive saliva test for the early detection of cancer. This is part of the Dio Cancer Fund’s commitment to this ground-breaking project, which is in keeping with its message that early detection saves lives.

There will be a display illustrating breakthroughs in the gastric cancer research that is being done at UCLA by Dr. Wong’s team, and he will be present to help explain these inroads to interested fans.  Additionally, the Dio Cancer Fund will be distributing complimentary bottles of sunscreen along with skin cancer prevention information.

The silent auction will be held in one of the exhibit booths throughout the afternoon, while live auctions, featuring one-of-a-kind rock collectables, will take place during intervals between artist performances.  Live Auction, raffle and silent auction items include a stage-worn full-length leather EDDIE MONEY trenchcoat from his 2000 “Millennium Tour,” a Great White acoustic guitar signed by the band members, Dio photo book signed by all of the Red Hot Chili Peppers, a Black Sabbath collectables and merchandise bundle, a variety of concert tickets, wine-tasting certificates, and much, much more.

Los Angeles’ premier rock radio station, 95.5 KLOS, has come on board this year as an event sponsor and will be out in force at Harley Davidson in Glendale for the start of the RIDE.

Slammin Sliders, G’s Taco Spot, Greenz on Wheelz and Archie’s Ice Cream food trucks will be on site at the Park throughout the afternoon.  Premium beer sponsored by Ninkasi Brewing Company will be available as well as Graffiti Wine, water courtesy of Solar Rain and soft drinks. Additional RIDE FOR RONNIE sponsors include Harley-Davidson of Glendale, Law Tigers and Bigg Time Entertainment.

An array of merchandise t-shirts, baseball-style shirts, caps, CDs, wristbands, event souvenirs, etc. will be available for purchase and a “Jumble Sale” booth featuring gently-used items and collectables benefiting the Dio Cancer Fund will be also on site at the park. Additional merchandise vendors will also participate.

Fall Out Boy coming to Quicken Loans Arena

Pin It

Fall Out Boy will embark on a 20-city North American fall arena tour, kicking off at Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland, OH on Friday, October 20th at 7:00 p.m. Pre-sale tickets will be available beginning Monday, May 1st. General tickets will go on sale Friday, May 5th at 10:00 a.m. at www.TheQArena.com and charge by phone at 888-894-9424. Fans can also purchase tickets at any one of Discount Drug Mart’s 58 northern Ohio locations OR the Quicken Loans Arena Box Office starting Monday, May 8th. 

Special guest for the tour will be announced at a later date. In addition, $1 of every ticket of the tour will go towards the band’s newly launched Fall Out Boy Fund which will support a number of charities in the Chicago area. For more information, please visit www.falloutboy.com/tour. 

Following a week of enigmatic posts and buzz across social media, multi-platinum selling, Grammy-nominated Chicago band Fall Out Boy dropped a new song called “Young and Menace” today, which is available NOW on all digital service providers. The band also released the song’s music video – watch HERE. 

“Young and Menace” – written and produced by Fall Out Boy – is the first taste of new music off the band’s forthcoming seventh studio album
M A  N   I    A, out September 15, 2017 on Island Records/DCD2 Records. M A  N   I    A is available for pre-order now at https://falloutboy.lnk.to/mania.

“There’s a lyric in the song, ‘trying to send the world a message, I was young and a menace,’ that reminded me of growing up in the suburbs of Chicago. I didn’t look like anyone there or feel like anyone – I felt like an outsider in my own town. It wasn’t until I discovered punk rock and that community that I realized I did fit in somewhere in this world – with the other people who didn’t fit in,” says Fall Out Boy bassist & lyricist Pete Wentz of the reasoning behind the song’s title. “It’s hard to rationalize rage – it’s hard to quantify anxiety… this song does neither, it embraces the wave…”

Of the video, Wentz describes the protagonist’s journey to explore the world outside one she’s previously known. “The concept is the idea of a movie like Elf, where he realizes maybe he isn’t an elf after all, but ours has less comedic elements and more real world implication. She realizes that maybe she is human after all – but maybe the line between us and monsters is blurrier than we think…”

M A  N   I    A is the follow-up album to the band’s platinum-certified sixth studio album American Beauty/American Psycho, which debuted at #1 on the Billboard Top 200 upon its January 2015 release. Hailing from Chicago, Grammy-nominated Fall Out Boy – Patrick Stump (vocals/guitar), Pete Wentz (bass), Joe Trohman (guitar) and Andy Hurley (drums) – has appeared on the cover of Rolling Stone and other prestigious publications. They have performed on Saturday Night Live, The Today Show, America’s Got Talent, The Voice, Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Conan, The Late Show with David Letterman, Jimmy Kimmel Live! and many more.

SUPERJOINT will be touring in support of their Caught Up In The Gears Of Application full-length. The record, which Loudwire crowned, “a raw exercise in riffing devastation and swirling, erratic tempo shifts,” is SUPERJOINT‘s first proper studio offering in over a decade. Recorded at the famed Nodferatu’s Lair, produced by SUPERJOINT co-founder Philip H. Anselmo (Down, Pantera, Scour, Philip H. Anselmo & The Illegals, Arson Anthem etc.) and Stephen Berrigan (Down, Philip H. Anselmo & The Illegals, Eyehategod, Haarp, Classhole, etc.), and mastered by Scott Hull (Agoraphobic Nosebleed, Pig Destroyer) at Visceral Sounds, the thirty-eight-minute bruiser spews forth an unapologetic crossover of hardcore punk, metal, and uncompromising, antagonistic, New Orleans-style angst.

Various order bundles, including limited edition vinyl options and authentic woodwork from their “Caught Up In The Gears Of Application” video are available via Housecore at THIS LOCATION. For digital orders, point your browser HERE where you can also stream the record in full.

 

SUPERJOINT was resurrected in 2015 after the original band broke up a decade earlier. At the behest of the late Corey Mitchell, co-founder of The Housecore Horror Film Festival, SUPERJOINT founders Anselmo, Jimmy Bower (Down, Eyehategod), and Kevin Bond (Christ Inversion, Artimus Pyledriver et al) joined forces with longtime comrades, drummer José “Blue” Gonzalez (Warbeast, Philip H. Anselmo & The Illegals), and bassist Stephen Taylor (Philip H. Anselmo & The Illegals, Woven Hand, 16 Horse Power). A new era of the band was born. After just two tours, new material followed culminating in the scathing sounds of Caught Up In The Gears Of Application.

 

“[Philip H. Anselmo’s] tenacity seems undeniable, and that spirit shines through Caught Up In The Gears Of Application from beginning to end.” – Blabbermouth

Multi-platinum selling artist Rex Brown has debuted an all new single titled “Crossing Lines,” on Loudwire Rex Brown will release Smoke On This… on July 28th, 2017 via Entertainment One Music (eOne Music). Or you can watch it here.

“My motto these days is ‘Shake some shit up,'” Brown declares about the new LP. “I’ve had my ups and downs, like anybody in this business. I wanted to feel like a true artist again, where I can write and record songs without worrying about any of the bullshit.” 

“Crossing Lines” is also available on all streaming platforms and as an iTunes instant gratification track, meaning fans who pre order the LP today will the the track as a download instantly. The artwork and track listing are available below as well for the first time along with both digital and physical pre orders options.

Brown continues, “We’re not going to necessarily cater to metal fans, but the guys who grew up with Pantera, a lot of them love all the same stuff that I grew up on, too. This is just something else I’m doing for fun, man. And musical Freedom. Fun has to come into it or I’m not going to do it. I’ve had a tremendous career and now I feel like I’m thirty years old again. This has given me that freedom I needed.”

“I’ve got so much more in me,” Brown enthuses. “I’m just getting my feet wet.”

Brown’s solo debut strips away any boundaries and preconceived notions, reveling in a newfound freedom to express all of the various shades of the man whose name is out front. The song “Fault Line” helped him find his voice. “That was the very first one I sang. After I got that one, I knew that I could do it, and Lance was my biggest motivator in finding that voice. Up until that point I just wasn’t sure.”

From there, there’s the brilliantly straightforward “Lone Rider,” the monstrous In Through the Out Door vibe of “Crossing Lines,” the Pink Floyd reverence of “Best of Me.” “Get Yourself Alive” is something of an ode to “Strawberry Fields Forever,” but with a swift-kick of rock n’ roll. It’s rich in nuance, with Indian tandoori and layers of vocals. The extremely catchy “Grace” is “something you would never expect to hear off a Rex Brown record and that’s exactly why I did it. It’s just a really great song, period. Bottom line.”

Lyrically, the songs are both personal and universally relatable. “Buried Alive” is a deeply moving and confessional song about the loss of Dimebag Darrell. “I drowned myself in cases of whiskey after he died. I was drowning in that black water and I had to find me, ya’ know? It’s one of those songs that really kind of just came out. ‘You’re on your own now, Jack. What’re you gonna do?’ The whole record is really cathartic.” Conversely, “What Comes Around Goes Around” could be about “your mailman, your neighbor, or your wife. It’s saying, ‘you made your bed, lay in it. I’m clean on my side of the street, how’s your’s going.”

Rex’s solo album is full of mojo and the force of character, determination, and nerve. He tracked lead vocals, rhythm guitars, and bass, working with his primary collaborator and old friend, Lance Harvill, a Nashville-based guitarist and songwriter, on the album’s songs. “Lance was & is, my main man on this. Everything we did was finely tuned, both musically & brotherly.”

Drums were tracked by Christopher Williams, himself no stranger to diverse tastes, from funk music to punk. His talent has been utilized by country music star Lee Greenwood, the reconstituted Blackfoot and most recently, power metal legends Accept. The album was produced by New Yorker turned Nashville transplant Caleb Sherman, a multi-instrumentalist with work on records by Little Big Town and Porter Block, among others. “Caleb produced the project from a musician’s standpoint,” adds Brown. “Not just a typical producer’s standpoint, which was something I definitely needed. Between Caleb and Lance, we were a force to be reckoned with. They really pulled out the best in me.” Peter Keyes, known for his work with Lynyrd Skynyrd can also be heard on a few tracks. All bass tracking came from Rex himself as well.

Who is Rex Brown? To the industry, fellow musicians, and a legion of fans around the world, he’s the bassist for Pantera, one of the biggest hard rock and metal acts of the past few decades, alongside Nirvana and Metallica. They had Number One albums with minimal support from traditional commercial outlets and went platinum several times over. Pantera rode a groundswell of underground loyalty, earned through several years of blood, sweat, and road beers. Five major label albums, countless international tours, and a series of carnage-filled home videos cemented a legacy as large as their massive riffs and the band’s insatiable appetites for mayhem, authenticity, and brotherhood.

Outline Magazine UK wrote about one of the recent shows:

“From the start it’s clear why Prong have made such an impression on the music scene. They have a sound bigger than the sum of the three people on stage, and they know how to use it. It’s like someone has weaponised metal, and they’re using the audience for aural target practice. It’s impressive, and it’s also really, really fucking good.”

The current PRONG album “X-No Absolutes” was released worldwide through SPV/Steamhammer on February 05th, 2016 as a Digipak (incl. bonus track + sticker), Double LP Gatefold version (red vinyl, CD in paper sleeve) and as download and stream. The album entered the official album charts in Germany, the USA, Belgium and the UK.

 This summer will bring the first-ever KROQ Presents High & Mighty Festival. The brainchild of Sublime With Rome and Dirty Heads, the two-day event will make its debut on Saturday, August 5th and Sunday, August 6th at Orange County’s beautiful Oak Canyon Park in Silverado, CA, adjacent to Irvine Lake. Produced by premier music festival production company Synergy Global Entertainment (SGE), Mike “Cheez” Brown, and Bill Hardie, High & Mighty Festival will feature two stages of music performances from top reggae, roots, hip-hop, and rock artists, plus lifestyle vendors, carnival rides and games, and onsite activities in a lush scenic setting, tucked into the mountains of Southern California. Venue capacity has been reduced to 8,000 to allow for easy traffic flow to and from Oak Canyon Park. The expansive oak trees, gorgeous grass, and picturesque lake set the perfect tone for a relaxing time in the shade.

The music lineup for High & Mighty is as follows:

Saturday, August 5th: Sublime With Rome, SOJA, Stick Figure, Method Man & Redman, Magic!, Ghostface Killah, King Lil G, Custom, Landon McNamara and Iya Terra, with more to be announced!

Rome Ramirez from Sublime With Rome exclaims, “The secret is out!! Southern California, get ready for High & Mighty!! This festival is extra special to us not only because it’s in our hometown, but because we’re partners in the event! We wanted to create something special for the fans that help make this music become as big as it has, and what better way to do that than to team up with KROQ and throw a massive festival in Orange County? So grab tickets and come celebrate with us!”

Jared Watson from Dirty Heads adds, “We are excited to be putting on our own festival with artists that have influenced us in the past, artists that are influencing us now, and artists that we have come up with. Not only is the lineup insane, but we get to put on a show in our backyard. We get to show people the community that we’ve had the pleasure of being a part of and helping to build.”

Mike “Cheez” Brown, High & Mighty co-producer and manager of both Sublime With Rome and Dirty Heads, says, “I’ve been kicking around this idea for a while with Sublime With Rome and Dirty Heads to do our own thing. With Irvine Meadows closing, we knew Oak Canyon would be the perfect setting for something special for our fans here in Orange County.  Come check it out, it’s going to be memorable.”

High & Mighty co-producer John Reese of SGE says, “I’m stoked to be partnering with Sublime With Rome and Dirty Heads to bring High & Mighty to life. We’re curating a killer summer experience in the solitude of Oak Canyon Park, with plenty of surprises in store for everyone.”

High & Mighty co-producer Bill Hardie adds, “The team we put together for this event is not just flying a flag of convenience.  We live this.  This is our life in black and white.”

More sad news… “It is with heavy hearts that we notify everyone of the passing our beloved father Allan Holdsworth.

We will update close friends and family when service arrangements have been made and will notify the public of an open memorial service, which all would be welcome. We are undeniably still in shock with his unexpected death and cannot begin to put into words the overwhelming sadness we are experiencing. He is missed tremendously.

NIGHT RANGER’S KELLY KEAGY TAKES LEAVE OF ABSENCE FOLLOWING SUCCESSFUL HEART PROCEDURE
Rock Veterans Castronovo & Coury to Fill In Temporarily Behind Drum Kit as Legendary Band’s “Don’t Let Up / 35th Anniversary World Tour” ContinuesKelly Keagy, the drummer, co-lead vocalist and co-founder of the acclaimed, multi-platinum and long-running band Night Ranger, is taking a temporary leave of absence from the band during April and May, as he recovers from a successful heart procedure, Night Ranger announced today.  Veteran drummers Deen Castronovo (formerly of Journey/Bad English) and Fred Coury (Cinderella) will sit in for Keagy for the next 6 weeks during the “35th Anniversary World Tour, which coincides with the release of the band’s 11th studio album, Don’t Let Up.

Keagy issued the following statement:

“I’ve dealt with a heart abnormality my entire life.  At the recommendation of my doctors, I decided to undergo a procedure that will allow me to come back even stronger.  I’ve asked the guys in the band to go ahead with the tour, and I’m looking forward to rejoining them on the road as soon as I can.  I’m grateful for the support and prayers of my family, my bandmates, and our fans, which have meant everything to me as I’ve gone through this process.”

Keagy is now at home continuing his recovery, which is expected to take six weeks.

Night Ranger’s Jack Blades (lead vocals, bass), Brad Gillis (lead & rhythm guitars), Keri Kelli (lead & rhythm guitars), and Eric Levy (keyboards) issued the following statement:

“We support and applaud Kelly’s decision to put his health first and undergo this treatment now so he can be back at full strength as quickly as possible.  While it will be strange being out on the road without our brother Kelly for the first time in the band’s history, we take comfort in knowing it’s a temporary situation, and he’ll be back soon even stronger to continue the “35th Anniversary World Tour”.”

“We’re grateful to our buddies Deen and Fred, for agreeing to step in as guest drummers for Night Ranger during Kelly’s short hiatus (Deen will perform at the May shows and Fred will perform at the April shows).  They’ve both been good friends of the band for years, and it’ll be great to be rockin’ America with them while Kelly recuperates.”

“We know our fans join us in sending their thoughts and prayers to Kelly and his family as he recovers from his procedure, and we look forward to reuniting with him on the road very soon as we celebrate the release of Don’t Let Up and the “35th Anniversary World Tour” rolls on.”

DARIUS RUCKER SUPPORTS ST. JUDE CHILDREN’S RESEARCH HOSPITAL® WITH EIGHTH ANNUAL “DARIUS AND FRIENDS” BENEFIT CONCERT JUNE 5 IN NASHVILLE, NOW AT THE HISTORIC RYMAN AUDITORIUM

Pin It

Nine years since visiting St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital® and pledging his support, Darius Rucker has announced the date for his eighth annual “Darius and Friends” benefit concert, sponsored by State Water Heaters. The event, which leads into CMA Music Festival week, takes place Monday, June 5 and will be held for the FIRST time at the historic Ryman Auditorium in Nashville.

“This concert is a real highlight for me every year,” Rucker said. “And I couldn’t do it without the support of my friends who turn out to perform, tell stories and make this a memorable night for the fans, who are here from around the world.”

The event has received an overwhelming response in past years, with sellouts year-after-year and more than $800,000 raised for St. Jude. Friends performing with Rucker in past years have included Luke Bryan, Radney Foster, Randy Houser, Jamey Johnson, Charles Kelley (Lady Antebellum) and Kenny Rogers, among others. The lineup for this year’s event will be announced in the coming weeks.

Rucker made a commitment to support St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital® after touring the campus in 2008 and is recognized worldwide for the lifesaving mission. 

St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital®  is leading the way the world understands, treats and defeats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases. Unlike any other hospital, the majority of funding for St. Jude comes from individual contributions. Events like this help ensure families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food – because all a family should worry about is helping their child live.

Tickets to “Darius and Friends” will be available on Friday, April 14 at 10 a.m. CT via ticketmaster.com. This year Rucker teamed up with Ticketmaster to allow supporters to become #VerifiedFans. Qualified registrants that enter by Thursday, April 13 at 10 a.m. CT will receive a unique code to ensure they can buy tickets without worrying about scalpers or bots. More info on becoming a #VerifiedFan here

Additional sponsors of “Darius and Friends” includes CDW/Intel, GE, Hutton, Maverick, CAA and UMG/Capitol Nashville. For more information please visit www.DariusRucker.com.

About St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital
Since opening more than 50 years ago, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital has changed the way the world treats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases. No family ever pays St. Jude for the care their child receives and, for every child treated here, thousands more have been saved worldwide through St. Jude discoveries. The hospital has played a pivotal role in pushing U.S. pediatric cancer survival rates from 20 to 80 percent overall, and is the first and only National Cancer Institute-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center devoted to children. It is also a leader in the research and treatment of blood disorders and infectious diseases in children. St. Jude was founded by the late entertainer Danny Thomas, who believed that no child should die in the dawn of life.

CD Review: Life of Agony – A Place Where There’s No More Pain (2017 Napalm Records) 9/10

CD Review: Life of Agony – A Place Where There’s No More Pain (2017 Napalm Records)

By: Dom Rini

Cutting through the chase let’s get down to business on this new release by Life Of Agony.  “A Place Where There’s No More Pain.” When a band takes a break or a hiatus coming back from that is pretty tough. But Life of Agony does not seem to have done this. What this band did was recharge their batteries and deliver a knock-out blow with their latest release.  Mina is on top with this one. Vocally, this release is a masterpiece even without the other elements of the other members contribution. This release is really catchy, easy to fall feel the vibe and the pocket of the entire release.

The title track “A Place Where There’s No More Pain” really sets the stage for the entire release, it may be an upbeat song by lyrically it hits you right in the heart. This release has covered so much ground in stretching their musical abilities. Opening this release with “Meet My Maker” shows the creativeness that is put into this one and you know this is going to be a helluva release.  Mina’s voice is at its best, to hear that check out the song “Dead Speak Kindly”  and “Right this Wrong.”  This release is a cornucopia of harmony, heavy guitars, pounding drums and vocally superior.  Great use of harmonizing and overdubbing vocals. Great emphasizing on the melodic phrasing throughout. “World Gone Mad” is a sweet upbeat/tempo track that should help put them back on the mainstream map.  Hooky, catchy and a really sweet track.  “Bag of Bones” gives you that down-tuning vibe of evilness, but it is cleverly masked. Mina shines in this one, a really nice breakdown as well. “Walking Catastrophe“ is a really sweet song, great melody lines. “Song For The Abused” delivers a different type of song, it stands out in this release. Its not a bad thing at all, it has its own feel to it. Closing out “A Place Where There’s No More Pain” is “Little Spots Of You” which gives you a dramatic ending of piano and Mina.

Overall: 9/10  If you were a fan of Life of Agony in the past, than you are in for a treat on this one. The band is extremely tight, lyrically and vocally a masterpiece, Alan does a great job and really tackles the blood thirst grooving side, Sal really shines on this one and Joey Z riffs it up big time!  It is full of a lot of messages, melody lines that keep you moving along with the release and you’ll find yourself hitting rewind on these.  I am really digging this and will keep in on high rotation. I am sure once I listen to it a good 20 times I will really be into it. Give “A Place Where There’s No More Pain” a chance to shine with your collection and play it LOUD!

Using the famed River Runs Red lineup featuring vocalist Mina Caputo, guitarist Joey Z, bassist Alan Robert, and drummer Sal Abruscato are excited to take the stage together once again this Spring.

FREE PARENT TICKET IS BACK!

FREE PARENT TICKET IS BACK!
Over our 22 years on the road, the Vans Warped Tour has always tried to adapt and change with our fan base. We are now in the very unique position to be able to have fans as young as 13 and as old as 40-45 (shout out to the ’95 vets!)

We have tried to strike the balance, but this year we admit, we tipped too far.  So now we are re-working the Parent Program instead of eliminating it entirely.

1 ticket = 1 parent

(1) parent (age 28 and older) will be permitted to accompany a child (under the age of 16) with a PAID TICKET to the event for FREE. This is a complimentary, non-transferrable wristband; the tour reserves the right to deny entry.

To get the PARENT WRISTBAND the morning of the show, the PARENT must bring their photo ID, the child they are accompanying, and the PAID ticket to the yellow guest list tent by the main gates.

NO EXCEPTIONS – if you do not have all 3 items listed above, we will not provide you with a wristband.

ADDITIONAL NOTES:

  • No switching parents out halfway through the day
  • No older siblings permitted to act as the accompanying adult
  • If you have a non-parental appointed legal guardian, please bring any available documentation the day of the show and we will work with you!

ALREADY BOUGHT A TICKET? – If you are a parent that already bought a ticket and are unable to find another use for it (ie. your child’s friend); please bring the paid ticket with you to the yellow guest list tent the morning of the show.

If you have specific questions or concerns, please email info@vanswarpedtour.com

World Gone Release Official Video for “Feed the Machine”

World Gone Release Official Video for “Feed the Machine”

Florida based Metal band World Gone has released the Official Music Video for their single, “Feed The Machine.” Self-directed and produced, “Feed The Machine” was shot in a Florida bunker.”Feed the Machine” is a story of human enslavement and the struggle to find a way to finally be free. Afraid of death, future loss, injury, and imprisonment, the majority of humans have become easily controlled and dominated by the powerful few. The greatest resource in history has not been gold or oil, it has been the extortion of other humans. You can’t get a hen to lay more eggs by threatening it but you can get a human to give you his eggs by threatening him. Human fear farming has been the most lucrative trade of all time and even now continues to feed the evil plans for domination of the universe by the bloated, power mad, and greedy Human Coercion Machine.- World Gone

“World Gone is the kind of band that will dominate the metal scene for decades. World Gone is the reason kids are scared of the dark.”
Scooter Ward, Cold Official

“What I love about World Gone is they are exactly what a metal band is supposed to be. Amazing riffs, great vocals, an over the top live show and a sound that kicks you right in the face!”
Matt Pinfield, Fan Pass (Apr 06, 2014)

“We pride ourselves at RockRevolt to find the cream of the crop indie bands that bust their asses off, and not only bust their asses off, but do it WELL! Here is a band that absolutely made us jump and go, “WOW!” World Gone is an example for Indie Bands everywhere of what to do, and how to do it! Out of Jacksonville, Florida the guys of World Gone have brought it together and can run with the big dogs ANY day! In fact, they do! From a stellar sound to an aesthetic that forces you to turn and look, these guys don’t even need to be on your radar, because they will be in your face soon enough, and you WILL see them, and you WILL love them!”
Alice Roques, RockRevolt Magazine

“Check out this awesome band on the rise! They will blow you away!”
– Lizzy Abshire, Mouth 4 Music (May 12, 2014)Hailing from a rusted old shed behind a trailer park on the Westside of Jacksonville, World Gone is preparing to assault your life and senses with a freak audio apocalypse like none before. Years of pent up aggression and disgust with state of our so called civilized society and clustered masses of trendy spineless media outlets have bred a wholeheartedly honest and vigorously explosive combination of volatile ingredients forming the thing know as World Gone. Your ears will be forcefully penetrated and your eyes will be ruthlessly violated by being witness to this xenomorph of maximum twisted force. Coming into existence through the wake of an unrealized dream, fueled by discontent and unwanted experiences, feelings, and thoughts, World Gone dissects and probes the depths of these shadow areas somehow trying to make something sick yet beautiful from the darkness in our lives and their current state of disrepair. World Gone has set on a journey to provoke inspired thought among the listening legions with poetry wrapped in an audial onslaught of brutality tempered with deep emotions that have been carved from the rotten flesh we call life. Singer and front man Joe Bennett is no newcomer to the shit storm known as the music business. Formerly with platinum selling artist Cold and other local Jacksonville heavy hitters like Snagglepuss and Order by Chaos, Joe has set out to make a difference not just for one group of listeners but all listeners. He has the presence, mind, and voice to delivers this post apocalyptic mutant gospel through at times terrifying and haunting orchestrations. Through years of writing and collaborating with some of the most creative minds in the industry like former and current members of Puddle of Mudd, Cold, and Evanescence, Joe has honed his craft and ability to pull at the frayed heart strings of your soul. Prepare to feel something, prepare to think, prepare to go beyond what is seen and explore the hidden dark corners of your mind. World Gone will rise to the pulpit to deliver this sermon with a dysfunctional choir to the fallen congregation. Give us your restless and shattered souls, we will give them the nourishment they seek. Sick and twisted things are happening in the underground of Florida. Come with us.

PAT BENATAR & NEIL GIRALDO TO TEAM UP WITH TOTO FOR CO-HEADLINE SUMMER TOUR

 

More Dates Announced This Morning

Two multi-Grammy Award winning groups: TOTO and PAT BENATAR & NEIL GIRALDO will team up this summer for a co-headline run of shows in North America. Thirteen dates are confirmed so far with a few more to follow. Tickets for most of the newly announced shows today will go on sale later this week.

“I’ve known Neil a long time and he’s a fantastic musician,” Toto’s Steve Lukather commented.  “Pat’s voice is one of the all time greats and we’re super excited to join together with them to do some shows this summer.”

“Looking forward to sharing the stage this year with our good friends and great players, Toto,” Pat and Neil shared.  “We’ve known each other for years and never had the opportunity to do an extended tour together until now. Should be good times for all.”

Pat Benatar and Neil Giraldo are a powerhouse duo. Since 1979, Benatar and Giraldo have formed one of the most successful partnerships in music history.

During their nearly four-decade career, they have won an unprecedented, four consecutive Grammy awards as well as three American Music awards.

Their undeniable chemistry, Benatar’s mezzo-soprano vocal range and Giraldo’s trail blazing work as a producer, guitarist and songwriter created some of rock’s most memorable hits. These include, “Promises in the Dark”, “Hell is For Children”, We Live For Love”, “Love Is A Battlefield”, “Hit me with Your Best Shot” and “We Belong”.

Earlier this year, they recorded “Shine”, a new song written with Linda Perry, celebrating women’s rights around the world.

Their rock and roll love affair has endured for 38 years and they continue to tour every year, wowing audiences everywhere.

With close to 40 years together and literally thousands of credits, including the biggest selling album of all time: Michael Jackson’s Thriller, and accolades to their names, TOTO remains one of the top selling touring and recording acts in the world.

In 2015, Toto released their first new studio album in ten years – TOTO XIV. The album exhibited world-class musicianship, masterful arrangements, topical lyrical commentary, and melodies that the collective talents of Lukather, Paich, Porcaro, Williams and their assembled band-mates brought to life.  It debuted Top 10 in nine countries around the world and became their most successful album since 1988 in the U.S. and UK.

In 2016 they released the Blu-Ray/DVD title Live At Montreux which quickly charted Top Five or better around the globe as well. With the band’s 40th Anniversary coming up in 2018, TOTO has major plans in the works to celebrate their enduring career.
