Aerosmith has announced they are hitting the road this summer with Cheap Trick for the “Global Warming Tour”! The first leg of the tour has been announced, which takes them to Minneapolis to start the tour June 16, and to Toronto on June 27. Tickets for those shows will go on sale March 30 and 31 at Ticketmaster.com and LiveNation.com. The second leg should be announced shortly…I think a stop in Winnipeg is in order!
Wow…it makes you wonder how this would have sounded! Had he not forged his career with Queen, Brian May would like to have been a member of AC/DC. He said in an interview over the weekend, “I’d have probably liked to be in AC/DC if Queen hadn’t existed but I’m the wrong sort of size and shape, unfortunately. Because it’s different from Queen. Queen were very eclectic – that’s the word isn’t it? – and we just trampled over every boundary that there was. But AC/DC are in a sense the opposite. They know their style and it’s incredibly pure and I have a great respect for that. And every single note they play is AC/DC completely.”
Despite being eligible for induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1999, and snagging a lone nomination in 2010, KISS have yet to make the final cut… something that clearly remains a sore spot for the group. Gene Simmons said, “It’s become a joke. We’ve been thinking about it and the answer is simply, ‘We’ll just buy it and fire everybody.’” That’s the spirit!
You may soon be able to take Van Halen singer David Lee Roth with you wherever you go; or, at least, Roth’s vocal yelps, whoops and screams. Dave Rogge of Brooklyn has created a new “Roth Scream Box.” The battery-powered unit is designed to play the isolated vocal tracks of Roth singing “Runnin’ With the Devil”. No word on whether Rogge will face any copyright infringement issues should he begin actually selling the item, which he says he built in his basement workshop.
The Wolf Pack is gearing up for one more night of forgotten debauchery. Warner Bros. announced that The Hangover franchise will return to theaters one more time, with The Hangover Part III scheduled to release May 24th. Bradley Cooper, Ed Helms and Zach Galifianakis are currently set to reprise their roles, although director Todd Phillips is keeping the plot under wraps.
Thanks for reading! Here’s a bonus code good until 11:59p on Friday, March 30: WOLFPACK
