    Are The Darkness touring? That one had escaped my attention!

    Woohoo GnR! What were the highlights for you? I'm going on the 14th.

    I'd be pumped if that Helloween tour came here. Pumped! What were the highlights of the cruise? Are you in Florida?

    Highlight for me was pretty much that Axl didn't suck and his voice sounds pretty good at the moment. Lowlight was no Don't Cry :(

    Back now :) but spent time in Miami before and after the cruise, then Vegas, Arizona and finally San Francisco.

    Highlights of the cruise for me were probably Amaranthe and Orden Ogan. Both SO much fun live.

    You're a jetsetter! Did you stay in downtown Miami or at the beach? Where'd you stay in Vegas? Half your luck!

    Prior to the cruise stayed at South Beach for a few days as that was where all the pre-cruise parties were happening, then after the cruise stayed a day in downtown miami just to recover.

    When we got to vegas just stayed the night at the Paris Las Vegas Casino. Interesting but certainly not anywhere I'd voluntarily return to :p

    ILL NIÑO
    15 Years Of Revolution
    With special guests Terror Universal
    Australian Tour 2017

    Hailing from New Jersey/New York ILL NIÑO are not just a meteorological event, they are a musical force to be reckoned with. Their revered album 'Revolution Revolucion' marked what was the beginning for these founding fathers of Latin metal. ILL NIÑO offered something different, they brought a flair and ethnicity to the metal scene. With their jaw dropping percussive artillery and Flamenco guitar tones, the band meshed the Latino passion with an aggressive metal assault. Their live show is where they shine: driving, energetic and animated, not many bands can match them. The fans are what pushes ILL NIÑO to continue to dominate after a decade.

    Now ILL NIÑO are headed back to Australia to perform their ground breaking album 'Revolution Revolucion' in full. This is no doubt a bucket list event to see such an influential album performed in its entirety!

    Joining ILL NIÑO are Horror Metal cannibals TERROR UNIVERSALwho were born in a dark galaxy of terror and feature current and former members of (Machine Head, Ill Nino & Soulfly).TERROR UNIVERSAL have already desecrated our soil with an appearance on Soundwave 2015 and the release of the EP ‘Reign of Terror’.

    With Plague (Vocals), Massacre (Drums), Diabolus (Lead Guitar) & Thrax (Guitars) on the verge of releasing their debut album,TERROR UNIVERSAL are in deep preparation for worldwide domination: "We are here to inflict terror and fear upon the masses. Our thirst for blood is eternal," bellows drummer Massacre. The masked deviants are sure to create even more pandemonium this time around.

    ILL NIÑO & TERROR UNIVERSAL Tour Dates:

    AUGUST 2017

    Wednesday 2 August - Capitol, PERTH – 18+

    Thursday 3 August - Fowlers Live, ADELAIDE – 18+

    Friday 4 August - Metro Theatre, SYDNEY - 18+

    RICHIE KOTZEN - SALTING THE EARTH TOUR

    Aug 24 Max Watts Brisbane, Australia
    Aug 25 Factory Theater Sydney, Australia
    Aug 26 Max Watts Melbourne, Australia

    Guitar virtuoso Richie Kotzen burst onto the heavy metal scene as a teenager with a lightning-fast guitar technique.

    After recording three albums for the Shrapnel label -- including his 1989 self-titled debut, the following year's Fever Dream, and 1991's Electric Joy -- he was recruited into the rock group POISON replacing original guitarist CC Deville.

    Kotzen recorded 1993's "Native Tongue" with the group. However, Kotzen left the band to return to his solo career not long after. That period included collaborations with fellow guitar hero Greg Howe (Tilt - 1995). By the end of the '90s, Kotzen was also working with the multi platinum selling rock outfit Mr. Big.

    Mr Big abandoned in 2002 while Kotzen returned to his solo career spawning a plethora of releases throughout the 2000's. Releasing 9 solo albums from 2001 til 2015.

    In 2013 Kotzen joined forces with two giants of the music industry. Billy Sheehan (David Lee Roth, Mr Big, Steve Vai) and Mike Portnoy (Dream Theater, Flying Colors) to form The Winery Dogs.

    The power trio released two highly successful albums - The Winery Dogs (self titled) in 2013, and Hot Streak in 2015.

    April 2017 will see the release of "Salting Earth" Richie's 22nd solo effort which for the first time in his illustrious career steers him across The Pacific to Australian shores for a very special East Coast Tour.

    Kotzen will perform 3 electrifying shows in Australia come August 2017 covering material that spans his 28 years of being at the top of his game not only as a guitarist but a songwriter and vocalist.

    This is an 18+ event.
