MELODICROCKFEST Australia: ECLIPSE, PAUL LAINE, BB STEAL, MITCH MALLOY and More!

 
A good number of VIP Tickets still available. Come join the Australian rock event of 2016!!!!!
 
After 4 successful events in the USA, Australian website and record label MelodicRock.com is bringing the popular MelodicRockFest event home.
MelodicRockFest Australia will make its local debut in Melbourne on May 13 and 14, 2016 at the Elephant & Wheelbarrow in St. Kilda.
 
International Headline acts Eclipse (Sweden); Paul Laine (Canada)(ex-Danger Danger) and Mitch Malloy (USA) will be joined by Australia’s brightest rock talent, including BB Steal, Black Majesty, Vanishing Point and newcomers Kaato.
 
For nearly 20 years now, MelodicRock.com has been covering the movements of the best melodic and hard rock acts from all over the world. From chart topping stadium fillers to independent studio projects, the site covers all the legends of the rock world, while placing a strong emphasis on new and upcoming artists plus the labels and people behind them.
 
MelodicRockFest takes that same attitude and brings it into a live setting. Mirroring the USA event's vision, MelodicRockFest Australia will exclusively showcase some of the best international melodic rock acts, some making their Australian debut, with support from some of the best local rock acts rounding out the line-up.
 
This is a festival demanded by the loyal local fans. It’s a one of a kind. It’s small, it’s intimate and it’s for those that recall the glory days of Adult Orientated Rock.
 
 
 
Appearing at MelodicRockFest is:
 
Saturday May 14 (Headline Day)
 
ECLIPSE (Sweden)
Eclipse are one of Sweden’s premiere melodic hard rock acts. They boast a strong following across all of Europe and are sought after session musicians when not touring. In 2015 the band released their critically acclaimed 5th studio album ‘Armageddonize’ and just recently were invited to participate in the Swedish heats for the 2016 Eurovision Song Contest.
This will be the band’s first trip down under and they plan on making the most of it by delivering a blistering set that won’t be soon forgotten.
 
ERIK GRONWALL (Sweden)(Special Guest)
Erik is the energetic frontman for one of Europe’s most in-demand rock bands, H.E.A.T. The band will be looking to hit Australia next tour, but for now, their popular frontman is making his own way down under to sample some local brews, hang out with fans and join Eclipse on stage for an extended encore that is sure to bring the house down!
Erik will also deliver an exclusive acoustic set for VIP ticket holders on the Friday afternoon.
 
PAUL LAINE (Canada)
Paul Laine has a career spanning over 25 years, starting off in the Vancouver rock scene, before signing with Elektra Records for his major label debut ‘Stick It In Your Ear’, an album produced by the legendary Bruce Fairbairn. In 1995 Paul joined American rock band Danger Danger as their new frontman for a 4 album run. His other projects include Shugaazer and Andersen Readman Laine, plus his currently touring country rock band Dark Horse.
Paul will perform a true best of set, featuring favourites from Danger Danger as well as all aspects of his career. This will be Paul’s second trip down under.
 
MITCH MALLOY (USA)
Mitch Malloy was already making waves in the late 80s but for AOR fans he burst onto the scene in 1992 with a debut album for RCA which immediately became a classic. Since then he’s recorded another 8 studio albums and toured worldwide. He continues to record and perform and is an in demand producer in Nashville.
This will be Mitch’s first trip to Australia and will see him deliver a high energy set featuring his hits and classic album cuts, backed by a powerhouse band.
 
BB STEAL (Adelaide) 
BB Steal are legends of the Australian melodic rock scene. Their major label debut was produced by Def Leppard’s Phil Collen and the band has often been touted as the “new” Def Leppard due to their layered, anthemic sound.
This will be their first Melbourne show in many years and will also feature permanent member, vocalist Craig Csongrady and the return of original guitarist Kevin Pratt! Expect the band to deliver a set heavy with tracks from their cult debut album as well as a few from 2013’s comeback album ‘Resurrection’.
 
WHITE WIDDOW (Melbourne)
White Widdow are the torch bearers for the classic 80s keyboard driven AOR sound here in Australia. The band are regulars on the Melbourne rock circuit and will deliver a set featuring tracks from their first three albums and their soon to be recorded fourth studio opus.
 
THE RADIO SUN (Melbourne)
The Radio Sun are fast becoming Australia’s harmony kings, with two highly acclaimed albums now available, both filled with classic harmony driven AOR. The guys have also doubled as Paul Laine’s backing band for the last few years, appearing with him at events in USA as well as here in Australia. Expect a great set of song from the two albums and a few surprises too.
 
SERPENTINE SKY (Melbourne)
Releasing their debut album 20 years after originally forming, Serpentine Sky are looking to make up for lost time and will blow fans away with their energy and the highly addictive songs from their recently released debut.
 
TEARGAS (Melbourne)
Teargas are back together after a 10 year hiatus. Last seen acting as Jeff Scott Soto’s support act for his 2004 OZ tour, the Melbourne lads are ready to kick it back into high gear and will open the main day with the energy of a headliner.
 
 
Friday May 13:
 
KAATO (Sydney)
Just who is Kaato? You won’t forget them after this show. Get ready to hear the band’s debut album, which is currently being completed with producer and guitarist…..
 
VANISHING POINT (Melbourne)
Melbourne’s own melodic metal heroes are excited to take part in this event. Without doubt, the heaviest band of the festival, but for this occasion the guys are going to delve into their back catalogue for some more melodic numbers alongside their most epic tracks.
 
TONK (Canberra)
Tonk take the hard rock back to the glory days of the American Sunset Strip. They have a groove and an attitude Guns N Roses would be proud of. Another rarity to have the band playing in Melbourne.
 
PAUL LAINE (Acoustic Set)
A completely different set of solo and Danger Danger tracks to blow fans away.
 
BLACK MAJESTY (Exclusive Acoustic Set)
An Australian exclusive! The Black Majesty guys have never played an acoustic set in their home country, so expect them to deliver something very special.
 
THE RADIO SUN (Acoustic Set)
Kicking off the event is one of the hardest working bands this weekend. The band will be promoting their upcoming acoustic project.

Legion Music Festival in Australian Fan Funded Debut

 
World-first, fan funded heavy music festival offers support to local acts

Following the announcement of Legion Music Fest, the Australian music festival tackling a world-record crowd funding campaign, the organisers have announced an initiative that will give all local bands that fall under the ‘heavy music’ genre a chance to be involved.
 
Legion have partnered with GiggedIn, a company that champions crowd sourcing for the Australian music industry, in order to run a competition that affords each of the bands an even playing field.
 
Legion founder, John Sankey said that supporting local talent is something that is fundamental to the ethic that he has created for the festival.
 
“We made a commitment to support local bands and the local industry and we meant it,” he said.
 
Once each band submits they will be reviewed by a panel of industry experts, including Sankey himself along with record label executives, award winning producers, music media experts and the event’s organisers, to determine the finalists for each state.
 
The fans will then vote; with the top six bands from Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane, and the top band from Adelaide and Perth, being given the coveted spot on their home stage.
 
“We turn to the fans for all major decision making, so why should this be any different?” said Sankey.
 
Bands are asked to submit 1 song, 1 music video link, a short bio and a photo to go in the running.
 
Should they be successful, they will go on to play alongside 25+ other international and local bands, with the event organisers set to announce major headliners shortly.
 
Local artists can submit to: http://www.giggedin.com/legion-music-fest

BUCKCHERRY Announce AU/NZ 2016 Tour Dates

Artist: 

KILLROCKSTAR & SOUNDWORKS PRESENTS ~ BUCKCHERRY - Australian & New Zealand Tour 2016

One of rock's great bands, Buckcherry will return to Australia and New Zealand this March.

Led by Josh Todd, a man who personifies rock n roll and anchored by guitarists Keith Nelson and Stevie D, drummer Xavier Muriel and bassist Kelly Lemieux,
Buckcherry will deliver a night of straight up good time rock and roll.

It’s going to be loud, it’s going to be sweaty, it’s going to be awesome!

Buckcherry have released seven full length albums of pure, unbridled rock since forming in 1995. Their latest, simply titled Rock N Roll sums up the bands ethos perfectly.
Rock and roll should make you want to do a few things, says Keith Nelson, “It should make you want to drive fast, fuck and dance”

And that it does, Buckcherry uphold the unwritten commandments of rock music:
Riotous energy, sexy swagger, primal chops and a lifestyle that can’t be switched off. They know no other way.

From their self titled debut album way back in 1999 which delivered unto the world anthems such as Lit Up and Dead Again, to 2006’s 15 which featured Crazy Bitch and Sorry,
to the infamous Fuck EP (where each song had everyones favourite F word in its title), and included the live staple Say Fuck It,
Buckcherry have the songs to make you move. And on album number seven, opening track Bring It On Back has the riffs and refrain of another BC classic.

Buckcherry will hit town soon.. oh yeah, you want it.

STYX Ends 2015 On A High Note; 2016 Tour Plans

Artist: 
 
December 9, 2015 -- In 2015, STYX--Tommy Shaw (vocals, guitar), James 'JY' Young (guitar, vocals), Chuck Panozzo (bass), Lawrence Gowan (vocals, keyboards), Ricky Phillips (bass) and Todd Sucherman (drums)--celebrated a milestone anniversary, a national TV broadcast and another hugely successful summer tour.  Time never stops for this legendary band.

They started the year with headlining tour dates of their own, as well as their first national TV broadcast in over two years, 'Live At The Orleans Arena Las Vegas,' which aired on AXS TV on Sunday, March 15. STYX's show was filmed at The Orleans Arena in Las Vegas, NV in front of a sold-out audience during last year's 'The Soundtrack of Summer' tour, which also featured Foreigner and former Eagles guitarist Don Felder.  STYX performed many of their greatest hits, including 'Come Sail Away,'  'Renegade,' and 'The Grand Illusion.'  They even dug deep into their catalog for such fan favorites as 'Light Up' and were joined on stage by Don Felder for 'Blue Collar Man.' Fans who were unable to watch the concert can finally catch a glimpse of 'Blue Collar Man' on STYX's newly revamped official YouTube page.
 
Earlier this summer, STYX joined Def Leppard and Tesla on a massive tour that spanned late June through early October in front of one critically acclaimed sold-out audience after another. Now due to overwhelming demand, Def Leppard, STYX and Tesla will commence on a three-week jaunt starting January 27 in Greensboro, NC.
 
More recently, in response to the horrific attacks in Paris on November 13, STYX and REO Speedwagon's Rock To The Rescue organization donated $25,000 to The Sweet Stuff Foundation to help families affected by the tragedy.
 
'We feel terribly saddened and outraged by these attacks,' said Styx guitarist/vocalist Tommy Shaw. 'We hope that our contribution will help ease some of the pain and some of the expenses of what this means to the families as they go through the process of grieving and bringing their loved ones home. Josh (Homme) and (Eagles of Death Metal) lost a crew member and employees of their record label, Universal, during the terrorist attacks. This hits home for us because we're also on the same label, and we deeply love our employees and our crew. Our hearts, minds, and prayers are with all the victims, and we urge all fans of Styx, Eagles of Death Metal, and classic rock who feel touched by this to join us in contributing. Thank you from everyone in the Styx family for your compassion.'
 
In addition to a last round of headlining tour dates that will conclude December 12 in Windsor, Ontario, STYX is ending the year on a high note.  They recently celebrated the 40th anniversary of their fifth EQUINOX album, which was released on December 1, 1975. It was the band's first album on A&M Records, after releasing their first four albums on Wooden Nickel/RCA. Right out of the gate, EQUINOX's lead track, 'Light Up,' fused the band's best instincts for how to blend harmonies, keyboard hooks, and power chords together to memorable effect, resulting in a song that continues to grace many of Styx's live set lists today. Two other hard-driving singalong EQUINOX songs, 'Lorelei' and 'Suite Madame Blue,' are also in regular live rotation.

JOURNEY's STEVE SMITH Talks 2016-2017 Tour

Artist: 
 
From STEVE SMITH'S facebook page today:
 

I have been invited to tour with Journey for the 2016-2017 touring season and I have agreed to play drums for the group during this period!

I’ve enjoyed working with Journey guitarist Neal Schon for many years and playing on his solo albums, including The Calling and his latest release Vortex. In fact, Neal and I still share the creative chemistry we had when I was a member of Journey. When we work in the studio on his music, it's essentially just the two of us, jamming, writing, arranging and recording.

Over the years, he has mentioned that he'd like to have me tour with Journey again. The invitation has always been appreciated but with my busy schedule always being booked at least a year in advance, the timing was never right. Some changes within the band have once again brought me the invitation to tour and this time we were able to plan in advance and work a Journey tour into my schedule.

Like an actor capable of playing a wide variety of roles, I'm a musician who enjoys, and is comfortable performing, diverse genres of music. My group Vital Information, as well as the other great jazz and world music artists that I tour and record with, remain a musical priority. I will also be performing with them during the next two years and by 2018 will resume my career full-time as a touring and recording jazz musician.

My decision to tour with Journey in 2016-2017 is based on many factors:

My relationship with Neal is strong and we enjoy playing together. I've been in touch with Jonathan Cain and Ross Valory and we have a good rapport both personally and musically. All four of us share a common history and have created some enduring music together. I've met and spent time with Arnel Pineda and have great respect for him both as a person and vocalist.

I am excited to revisit a role that was a formative part of my career, performing music that has touched many people for more than 30 years. My kids Ian, Elizabeth, Kasia and Zac have not seen me play with the group (Ian has but he was too young to remember), it will be fun to have them see me perform with the band. Finally, I can say "yes" to the many fans who have asked if I would tour with Journey again.

My hope is that Journey fans will appreciate a new line-up similar to the Escape and Frontiers era -- and will want to revisit this timeless music with me. By bringing my musical experience to the table along with the years that the members of Journey have spent touring, I'm sure this new incarnation of Journey will develop its own special magic. It's going to be amazing. I look forward to seeing all the fans on the road!

About Multiple Sclerosis

  • Every hour in the United States, someone is newly diagnosed with MS, an unpredictable, often disabling disease of the central nervous system. 
  • MS interrupts the flow of information from the brain to the body and stops people from moving.
  • Symptoms range from numbness and tingling to blindness and paralysis.  The advancement, severity and specific symptoms of MS in any one person cannot yet be predicted, but advances in research and treatment are moving us closer to a world free of MS. 
  • Most people with MS are diagnosed between the ages of 20 and 50, with more than twice as many women as men being diagnosed with the disease. 
MS affects more than 400,000 people in the U.S. and 2.1 million worldwide.

JOURNEY Recalls Drummer STEVE SMITH For 2016 Tour

Artist: 
 
JOURNEY and THE DOOBIE BROTHERS will launch the San Francisco Fest 2016 tour on Thursday, May 12, again bringing together two of the iconic groups that helped define the San Francisco sound. The tour launches at the Irvine Meadows Amphitheatre in Irvine, California — with concerts scheduled through August 30, and includes special guest Dave Mason. A limited number of VIP packages will be available and include premium tickets, pre-show party, exclusive merchandise and more.
 
Tickets go on sale to the general public beginning Saturday, December 5. A fan pre-sale will be offered starting Monday, November 30.
 
Neal Schon (founding member and lead guitarist), original member Ross Valory (bass), and longtime members Jonathan Cain (keyboardist) and Arnel Pineda (lead singer), are welcoming virtuoso drummer Steve Smith back into JOURNEY, marking the first time he will perform with the band since 1998. Schon and Smith have always remained close friends and musical collaborators. Smith has lent his incredible talent to several of Schon's solo albums, including critically acclaimed "The Calling", and, most recently, "Vortex".
 
Schon was thrilled when Smith accepted his invitation to rejoin JOURNEY, exclaiming: "I'm so looking forward to the very exciting 2016 we have planned, starting with my 'Neal Vortex Schon' Japan tour in February and then our major summer tour with THE DOOBIE BROTHERS and Dave Mason. We will see you all soon!!!!"
 
THE DOOBIE BROTHERS' Tom Johnston (founding member, vocals/guitar), Patrick Simmons (founding member, vocals/guitar), and longtime member John McFee (guitars/strings/vocals) are adding LITTLE FEAT co-founder Bill Payne to their band on the 2016 tour. Payne performed on many of THE DOOBIE BROTHERS studio albums as well as on the road; a relationship the band is looking forward to rekindling.
 
"It's gonna be a great summer for fans of Bay Area music, and for guys like us who have the pleasure of teaming up with our good friends from JOURNEY and the Dave Mason band," said Tom Johnston and Patrick Simmons of THE DOOBIE BROTHERS. "We look forward to taking the stage with JOURNEY. We love their songs, and think we will all complement each other musically. It is going to be a powerful tour. We can't wait to share it with the fans!"

LOVERBOY Hit And Miss In Los Angeles Concert

Artist: 
 
By Gerry Gittelson
Melodicrock.com Los Angeles correspondent
 
LOS ANGELES -- Loverboy does not tour as frequently as fellow Canadian classic-rock acts such as Rush or Bryan Adams, so it was a rare treat when the fivesome performed before a capacity crowd at Canyon Club, one of Southern California's largest clubs.
 
In past visits, Loverboy has absolutely killed. This time, the group that has been around since 1979 showed their age just a bit, as singer Mike Reno sang well but struggled to hit the high notes, even though most of the songs were tuned down at least a full step.
 
Not that Loverboy did not succeed. The crowd (consisting of about 75 percent females!) certainly enjoyed the show -- and that's the most important thing -- and the band defintely put in a solid effort with a nearly two-hour set that featured all the big hits.
 
But because Reno is such a focal point in band that lacks any other real standouts, a lot of the thumbs-up/thumbs-down comes down to him. Not that it matters much anymore because no one would expect him to fit into the red leather pants pictured on the cover of "Get Lucky," but Reno continues to struggle with his weight. Reno does not move much either, pretty much planting himself in front of the mic stand for the duration.
 
Then again, Loverboy's songs are so effective that all the group really needs to do is execute and turn up the volume, and that's exactly what went down, so most of us left happy.
 
Put another away, Loverboy was able to afford holding their biggest two songs for the end -- "Turn Me Loose" and "Working For The Weekend" -- and it all worked out.
 
Spellbinding? No. Worth the money? Yes.
 
"The Kid Is Hot Tonight" found everyone pushing away their dinner plates and standing up. "Hot Girls in Love" saw the cougars roaring for all they were worth. "Lovin' Every Minute of It" tinged good memories of a lost generation when rock was king and FM radio ruled.
 
Originals Paul Dean (guitar), Doug Johnson (keyboards) and Matt Frenette (drums) are all still in place, so Loverboy remains more legitimate than a lot of others with only one or two longtimers.
 
Afterward, the group was in good spirits backstage.
 
"I do like to play Los Angeles, but then again, I like playing anywhere," Dean said
 
An unknown act called Crack-In-The-Shell opened. In keeping with the Canuck theme, the power trio wears its Rush influence on its sleeve, and the truth is the band went over very well and proved surprisingly entertaining.
 
Singer/guitarist Daniel Allen sounded great on "Waiting," bassist/keyboardist James McFadden kicked ass on "Catastrophic," and drummer Jason Russo pounded away with fury on "Hold On."
