The debut UPROAR TOUR was a hot ticket! From the makers of ‘MAYHEM’, this is their ‘Hard Rock’ brand, as opposed to the more ‘Metal’ MAYHEM! Headlining were the powerhouse DISTURBED & AVENGED SEVENFOLD (who both new albums debuted at #1 on the charts!) AVENGED, with new drummer Mike Portnoy (filled in for their drummer who passed away last year), rocked hard & had more pyro than more 4th of July extravaganzas! They pummeled the young crowd with anthem after anthem! DISTURBED followed with amazing video screens & content, more darker & slow build, but highly entertaining show! Openers STONE SOUR (featuring SLIPKNOT’s singer & guitarist) & HALESTORM, featuring an awesome female singer were RED HOT! Plus a pre-arena parking lot show with Pantera & Mudvayne members in HELLYEAH, the best AC/DC-ish act out there in AIRBOURNE, NEW MEDICINE & more! Bring us more UPROAR in ’11!
Upcoming: SMOKEOUT Festival Oct. 16 in SoCal, with INCUBUS, MGMT, NAS & DAMIAN MARLEY, & more! www.SmokeoutFestival.com; AEROSMITH is again OUT OF ACTION, with lead singer STEVEN TYLER grabbing that ill advised Simon Cowell seat on AMERICAN IDOL! Will this legendary US Hard Rock group survive?!
Heard the new UNDEROATH album (‘Disambiguation’) & it ROCKS! Like classic DEFTONES, with standout tracks “In Division’, ‘Illuminator’, “PaperLung’, ‘Icy One’ & more – this is a GREAT ALBUM!
