Farm Rock Tulsa Announced

A new 80s rock festival will be officially announced today. The fest is called Farm Rock "Streets Gone Wild" and it will be held in Tulsa, Oklahoma September 9 and 10th. As of the publish time of this post, no bands have been officially announced, but Pollstar lists Warrant and Faster Pussycat as being on the bill. We'll reconvene here after the afternoon press conference and discuss the full bill and other details like ticket costs. Stay tuned.


Houston Open Air Looks Great

So The Cult are playing a new fest called Houston Open Air set for September 24 and 25 in Houston, Texas. The headliners are Alice in Chains and Avenged Sevenfold. Other bands include Ministry, Alter Bridge, Sevendust, Buckcherry, Hellyeah and tons more. Tickets go on sale today and are under $100 for both days.


Another Reminder To Get To Shows

Michael Sweet of Stryper recently shared a cryptic message on his personal Facebook which was reposted to the Stryper page. I'm not 100% sure this was an announcement that Stryper would be done touring soon. It sort of reads like a marketing tactic for this current run of dates, but we can't deny our favorite bands are getting to official retirement age - these guys don't want to work forever. I sure as heck don't. So if you have a band you've never seen and you want to, make it happen. I feel like we have about a 10 year window left, and that's it. Carpe Diem.

Lemmy Stamps!

Only available in Germany, but oh so cool - Lemmy stamps! Can you imagine getting these from the U.S. postal service? I just can't see it, but man that would be badass. What a great honor and way to remember Lemmy and his musical contributions.


Rock Carnival Festival Announced

Motley Crue: 'The End' Coming To Theaters

From my email inbox:

(NEW YORK, NY, May 11, 2016) – On December 31, 2015, legendary rock icons Mötley Crüe completed their 35-year touring career as a band with a spectacular final concert at Staples Center in their hometown of Los Angeles, CA, just 10 miles from the Sunset Strip where the band’s infamous and decadent career first launched. The band thrilled the sold-out arena with performances of such mega-hits as “Kickstart My Heart,” “Girls Girls Girls,” “Home Sweet Home” and “Dr. Feelgood.” While not everyone was able to see their Final Show live, Crüe fans can now catch all the action when Fathom Events, Live Alliance, Eagle Rock Entertainment and Tenth Street Entertainment present “Mötley Crüe: The End” in select U.S. cinemas on Tuesday, June 14, 2016 at 7:00 p.m. local time for only one night. In addition to the epic concert footage, cinema audiences will be treated to behind-the-scenes footage of the band’s last global tour.

Here's a trailer of the movie below. Surprisingly, this is actually playing in several theaters around me.
