The Eagles Announce Concert Dates

A classic band I've never seen live is The Eagles. The group is hitting the road for a short "tour" this fall. It will be the first tour without Glenn Frey. Right now, only four dates have been announced:

  • Greensboro Coliseum in North Carolina on October 17
  • Philips Arena in Atlanta, Georgia on October 20
  • KFC Yum! Center in Louisville, Kentucky on October 24
  • Little Caesars Arena in Detroit, Michigan on October 27

It's speculated that the band will announce more dates and make it more of a full fledged tour. Frey's son Deacon is playing guitar in the band for these dates. If you want to go to one of these shows, get ready: tickets are going to be really expensive. 



Pantone Honors Prince

So this is very cool. The Pantone Color Institute has announced "Love Symbol #2," a beautiful shade of purple to honor the late musician. 

The color of "Love Symbol #2" was inspired by the hue of a piano Prince was going to take on tour before his untimely death.

It will be interesting to see if this shade of purple becomes the "it" color in fashion - Prince's estate licenses everything, so I can see how this will turn into a money maker. I'm just glad Prince is getting a little nod this way. 



Heavy Hitters on SNL 

Here's a compilation of the heaviest performances from Saturday Night Live over the years.

Skid Row is around 27 minutes in and there are two back to back amazing performances. Definitely worth a watch.


L.A. Guns, 'Sticky Fingers'

Woo boy! L.A. Guns have just released the audio of "Sticky Fingers," another track off their upcoming album The Missing Peace. That record comes out October 6.

This is another good one. The Missing Peace is going to be very strong I think. Phil Lewis and Tracii Guns belong together, for better or worse. Enjoy.


Literally Nothing Matters

A song of dead air is now climbing the iTunes chart. I get the point - so it can be the first track on an iPhone and not blast into a car stereo, but still. Actual musicians are competing against this. The track is called "A a a a a Very Good Song" by Samir Mezrahi.


Watch Alice Cooper Burn Down Wacken Open Air

First off, click play on the video below. Just look at the sea of humanity. I dare anyone to say metal is dead. Second, why is Alice Cooper playing during the day? Third, watch the legend burn it down.

I pity the bands who followed him at Wacken Open Air earlier this summer. Here's amazing performances of both "Feed My Frankenstein" and "School's Out." Happy Friday!


Def Leppard Is Touring In 2018

Def Leppard will tour in 2018 and they will perform Hysteria in its entirety. This will be part of the band's 30th anniversary celebration of Hysteria.

It sure seems early to announce tours for next summer, but hey, money talks and if the band can lock in offers, they might as well. So now the question is - who opens? They just went out with Poison and Tesla, so it won't be them. Maybe Def Lep will flip the script and choose a newer band. That might be fun. Thoughts?
