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?
Over the weekend, Steven Tyler performed "Dream On" during the Miss Universe contest. I like that he wore black and white stripes, a reference to the band's 70s roots.
The pageant took place Saturday night in Moscow. In case you're wondering, Miss Venezuela, Gabriela Isler won the crown.
Here's one for the "you can't make this up" file: Bret Michaels has his own cologne now. Called Roses & Thorns, Bret is selling the scent on his website for $60 bucks a bottle. What's more, he created the craziest, cheekiest, most ridiculous promo video for the stuff, too. I'll be honest, when I watched the commercial (or whatever it is) I laughed really hard for a really long time. I mean, we're talking theatre of the absurd here, people. At some point, we have to ask ourselves "Is this real life?" First Phil Lewis debuts some perfume, now Bret has his own scent. I think these guys are running out of things to monetize.
If you want a bottle of the perfume, you can pre-order. No word when the scent officially hits the streets.
