I love the Van Halen album Balance and I love that I got to go to the tour back in 1995, too. That was my first really big rock show, so it holds a special place in my heart. Low and behold, someone has uploaded an entire night of the Balance tour to YouTube. Watching the footage really brings back some good memories of listening to Balance on repeat while sitting on the floor on my bedroom back in high school.
This video is epic: a Bon Jovi fan lip syncing to "Livin' On A Prayer" during a Celtic's game. Talk about grabbing the spotlight! I think this video is old but I just saw it for the first time yesterday. Hilarious.
God of Glam Michael Monroe has a new video for the track called "Stained Glass Heart." This is the real deal, people. It doesn't get much better than Michael.
"Stained Glass Heart" is from the album Horns and Halos.
Holy Glam! It isn't even Thanksgiving and it seems like we've got our first big shed package of summer 2014. Just a few hours ago, Journey and the Steve Miller Band announced a summer tour - and there are a lot of dates. Pollstar has a quote from Miller:
“I can’t think of a better way for the Joker to celebrate his 40th and the Steve Miller Band to enjoy next summer than playing all our hits for all of our fans as we tour the entire USA with our brother San Francisco bands, Journey and the Tower Of Power,” Steve Miller said. “This is going to be a not to be missed trifecta of the best of soul, greatest hits and arena rock by three of the greatest bands to come out of San Francisco, clearly a once in a lifetime event. We can’t wait to get started!”
The tour starts May 15 and ends August 1. The package hits Riverbend in Cincinnati on June 25 and I think I might go! Tickets go on sale for this November 22 via Ticketmaster. You can see all the dates at Pollstar.
Avenged Sevenfold recently played live in Boston. The band is playing live on the back of their new album Hail to the King. The album is easily one of the best of the year. While I basically love every song on the new album, "Unholy Confessions" (below) from Waking the Fallen remains my favorite A7X song period. Indulge me. Not Glam, but it makes me oh-so-happy.
I'm trying to dig this band, but I don't know how I feel about this song. What do you think?
