Sleaze Revival - Best Glam Events of 2007

Yesterday, I asked you for suggestions on the best Glam or Sleaze artists of the year. Today, we'll continue with the Sleaze Revival 2007 theme, tackling the biggest music events that are helping to Bring Back Glam!

Here's my list - in no real order. 

Rocklahoma - Even though I say this list has no real order, any one who was at Rocklahoma 2007 knows the impact on the 80s metal revival. I have high hopes for Rocklahoma 2008 and I would definitely peg Rocklahoma as the number one reason Glam Metal is on the rise.

Sweden Rock Festival - Featuring Aerosmith, Crashdiet, Skid Row, Quiet Riot, Fastway and more...this is one festival I'm so sad I missed! Someday I'll have a "Sweden" stamp on my passport, just so I can attend this big rock party.

Poison/RATT/Vains of Jenna summer tour - Two of the best Glam Metal acts in history, teaming up with the new breed of sleaze. It doesn't get any better!

Van Halen reunion
- The boys are still touring, so you've got time to catch a show. Hyped as the biggest tour of the year, it's also turning out to be the most profitable. Even with age, Eddie Van Halen is still a guitar mastermind. You need to see this genius live. Just pretend Michael Anthony is there and rock with Wolfgang. After all, he is a blood Van Halen.

Slash releases tell- all - Slash sure can wail on a guitar...and he's got an amazing life story to tell, too. Pick up Slash and learn about all the unknown Guns n' Roses drama. It's a great read and provides true insight into one of America's most talented - and destructive - rock bands.

Feel free to add your thoughts, or other events I may have missed. I can't wait for your comments and additions!

Viva La Bands.

even though CKY isn't anything close to sleazy bam loves sleaze and the drummer for cky is bam's brother. Vains of Jenna is definatly as sleazy as it comes and when you see GWAR, you will think they are two. Cradle is very sleazy but they still totally rock. they are more glam extreme metal.

Is Van Halen really considered Glam? Or Aerosmith for that matter?
