It's not even Halloween yet - and I'm already getting some juicy hot tips on some 2009 summer tour packages. No tip is more juicy that what I am about to tell you.
Take a deep breath.
I've heard through the Glam grapevine that Cinderella may hit the road with RATT...and Kix. The mere mention of Kix playing a couple shows a week in places not mainly on the east coast should make any good Glam fan giddy.
Now, there's a lot of news here to dissect. First, Tom Keifer must be healing nicely if there is even possible "talk" of a Cinderella summer tour. Granted, the "tour" could be a bunch of fly-in dates to major or medium-sized markets over weekends. Second, RATT have supposedly been working on a new album for quite some time. Touring *yet again* makes sense if they have an album to support, so go ahead and look for that disc by next summer. Third, Kix touring is major news in and of itself. Dare I say my dirty boys are in bigger demand in 2008...than they were in 1988? Only time will tell.
You know what this means, right? If this package tour happens, I say you can bet on seeing at least two of the three acts at the many rock festivals popping up all over the country. There's Rocklahoma, Rock the Bayou, South Texas Rock Fest, Rock Gone Wild, Rock Fest, Moondance Jam... the list goes on.
So. What do you think? Do you believe my hot tip? You should know that I vette my tips with a lot of care. When I hear something, I track backward from the source. I ask around. I make phone calls.
Remember, I told you six months ago Poison wouldn't be touring summer of 2009. No one believed me then. Now we know this to be true. I also said there would be no 2009 Motley Cruise. Just sayin'.
