Alter Bridge recently announced its special Royal Albert Hall shows for early October, which sold out extremely fast, followed by additional U.K. and Ireland dates. Due to the great demand to get them back to Europe’s mainland, the band now can proudly announce “The Last Hero” tour all across Europe. Starting in Paris at the Elysee Montmartre, the trek leads Alter Bridge from France to the Netherlands, from Germany over Austria to Poland, Hungary, Switzerland all the way down to Spain and Portugal, where they also ended their last tour just a couple of days ago.

In case you saw Alter Bridge live on this past tour or at any of the summer festivals, the band’s upcoming tour will see them playing a totally different set. Continue reading »

W.A.S.P. will celebrate the 25th anniversary of its classic fifth album, “The Crimson Idol”, by releasing a re-recorded version of the LP along with a 50-minute DVD film of the album’s story. In addition, the band will perform “The Crimson Idol” in its entirety — on a tour dubbed “Re-Idolized: The 25th Anniversary Of The Crimson Idol” — along with three missing songs originally intended to be part of the recordings. The show will be done in two parts, with the first being “The Crimson Idol”, and part two being a collection of greatest hits.

Dates and locations are listed below.

Released in 1992, “The Crimson Idol” is a full-length conceptual album that tells the twisted tale of a suicidal rock and roll icon and the perils that come with fame. With guitarist Chris Holmes no longer a member of W.A.S.P., Blackie Lawless recorded “The Crimson Idol” with guitarist Bob Kulick and drummers Stet Howland and Frankie Banali. Voted one of the Top 20 conceptual albums of all-time by Metal Hammer magazine, “The Crimson Idol” is obviously more of a soundtrack than, say, a straight rock ‘n’ roll album. Continue reading »
