The frontman was asked recently if he would like to play the opening ceremony of the event which will take place in his hometown of Birmingham in the summer of 2022 and he responded, "Yeah, that would be fantastic. With Black Sabbath or on my own."
His former Black Sabbath bandmate Tony Iommi has now endorsed the idea. The guitarist told Birmingham Live, "I think that it would be a great thing to do to help represent Birmingham. I'm up for it! Let's see what happens!"
The numetal pioneers have announced that they will be playing some west coast 20th anniversary shows in September to celebrate their third studio effort (12th at the Masonic in San Francisco, 13th at the Palladium in Los Angeles, and 15 that the Pearl Theater in Las Vegas.)
The announcement sparked speculation that the band would play their album in full during the shows but Davis said in a new interview with 93.3 WMMR that will be skipping a couple of the tracks.
He explained, "We're not gonna do it in its entirety. There's a couple of songs that are just dumb [laughs], that we don't wanna play. We were really drunk when we made 'em. But we're gonna play the majority of the record."
The new 28-city tour leg is set to kick off on January 10th in Buffalo, NY at the KeyBank Center and conclude on February 20th in Sacramento, CA at the Golden 1 Center. Support will be provided by Two Feet with an additional opening band still be announced.
The new leg is part of the group's world tour plans including the first leg of the North American tour this summer as well as international dates in Australia, Japan, the Philippines and Mexico. See all of the dateshere.
Following an opening set of Led Zeppelin classics by Jason Bonham's Led Zeppelin Evening, Whitesnake delivered a 10-song performance that leaned heavily on their self-titled 1987 album - from the opening tune, "Bad Boys", to show-closer "Still Of The Night" - while also featuring tracks from 1982's "Saints & Sinners' and 1984's "Slide It In."
Foreigner kicked off their 12-song set with "Long, Long Way From Home" - one of four tracks from the group's 1977 self-titled debut - while strictly sticking to material from their first five albums, up to 1984's "Agent Provocateur."
The band was joined during the encores by the Gardiner Area High School Choir for the 1984 smash, "I Want To Know What Love Is."
The 29-city summer concert series will wrap up in Irvine, CA on August 1. Watch videos from the opening night here.
According to The Official Charts Company, the Oasis smash joins hits by Rick Astley ("Never Gonna Give You Up"), Coldplay ("Paradise"), and LMFAO ("Sexy & I Know It") as the latest additions to the UK's one million single sales mark club, which now totals just 175 songs.
While it has remained popular with the British public since its release, "Don't Look Back In Anger" returned to prominence in recent years: following a performance of the song by Ariana Grande and Coldplay's Chris Martin at the One Love Manchester benefit concert last year - a tribute to victims of the Manchester terror attack - the tune returned to the Official Singles Chart Top 40 at No. 25.
"Don't Look Back In Anger" is Oasis' second UK million-seller after "Wonderwall.", which also appeared on "(What's The Story) Morning Glory?" Read more here.
The project, which can be ordered here, features 15 records - from 1971's "Sticky Fingers" to 2016's "Blue & Lonesome" - pressed on heavyweight 180-gram black vinyl in an individually-numbered, limited-edition package that presents the records in faithful and intricate original packaging replications, including the original Andy Warhol-designed "Sticky Fingers" album with a working zipper and a hidden image underneath.
Spread across 20 LPs, all 15 records have been remastered and cut at half-speed at Abbey Road Studios by engineer Miles Showell from vinyl specific original tape transfers designed to get the very best possibly sound from the format.
This process involves the master source being played back at precisely half its recorded speed while the cutting lathe is similarly turned at half the desired playback speed - allowing the cutting head twice the time to cut the intricate groove while providing more audio accuracy than ever before.
Each album includes a download card for HD digital redemption of the catalog and includes a numbered certificate of authentication. Read morehere.
Godsmack frontman Sully Erna had this to say, "We're honored to be headlining the Louder Than Life festival in Louisville this year! Looking forward to partying with all of you again real soon!"
Benjamin Burnley of Breaking Benjamin added, "We're excited to come back to Louisville for Louder Than Life 2018 and play songs from our new album EMBER for the first time in Kentucky! We always have a good time there and look forward to what we know will be a kickass show." See the full lineuphere.
The studio effort marks the band's first record to feature Porcupine Tree/current King Crimson drummer Gavin Harrison as a full fledged member of the group. Frontman Bruce Soord had this to say:
"Far Below began life as a bit of a jam session between myself and Gavin. [He] had this distinctive 6/8 rhythm going and it didn't take long for me to find the melodies. And so, a song was born. Is it my favorite track from the album? Impossible to judge as the album covers so much ground. But it does showcase what the four of us want The Pineapple Thief to be about and I for one can't wait to play this one live." Check out the songhere.

The new video was directed by Wayne Isham (Motley Crue, Avenged Sevenfold, Megadeth), and frontman Tommy Vext explained the deeply personal theme of the new clip, "My twin brother is currently serving 17 years for attempted murder - [he] tried to kill me during a home invasion when he was high in 2010… [Testifying against him] was definitely one of the more difficult moments of my life.
"'Remember When' kinda goes through a timeline and highlights two people who lived the exact same life and had the exact same hardships and advantages and disadvantages, and who we are ultimately as adults is defined by the choices that we made, and our lives reflect those choices."

I was on the highway with low gas on my ford explorer 2000 that I bought for $400. When i got to LA , my car was a wrack i couldn't even open the doors from the outside i needed to jump in from the back to the driver seat and find someone to jump start my car every time I turned it off cuz I didn't have money to buy a new battery.
I was Driving to some gig to get some money and i felt that I'm going crazy like everything is against me but I'm still doing my thing and I didn't care what will happen that gave a feeling of freedom and i started to Hum the chorus in my head
I already had the lyrics sort of and the melody and i took my phone and recorded the chorus so i wont forget it while I'm driving.
After a few months when I started to record it I kinda realized that this is one of the best songs in this album. When I'm thinking about everything from perspective point of view it makes my cry And my fills with tears of sadness, joy and maybe more mixed emotions . Especially after I bought a 2018 Ford Mustang.
I think that God answer my prayers. And now I'm free.
Hearing is believing. Now that you know the story behind the song, listen for yourself and learn more about the albumright here!
