musicNEWS: Glam Slam Metal Jam is coming in May. 
3-13-01 antiGUY

Better start stocking up on hairspray and lipstick because Poison is coming to town this summer. Poison will make their annual rounds of amphitheaters starting in May in a tour they have dubbed “The Glam Slam Metal Jam”. 

This is the third year in a row that Poison has hosted a summer tour. Last years outing with Cinderella, Slaughter and Dokken even outsold the Ozzfest is some markets. This year Poison has decided to mix things up a bit with the supporting acts. In the glam category they are bringing Warrant along for the ride. For 80’s style metal they have Quiet Riot and to fill out the bill they have hard rockers Enuff Z’nuff. 

Although Warrant has toned down their image over the past few years, fans will still get a full serving of “Cherry Pie”. The down boys are still out supporting their 1999 release “Latest and Greatest” but rumor has it they have inked a deal with Spitfire Records for a new album. 

Quiet Riot will put a harder edge on things as they inspire the fans to come on and feel the noise. They will be touring in support of their new album “Guilty Pleasures”, which is expected to hit the stores in June. Quiet Riot rose to fame in 1983 when their major label debut album spawned the hit single “Cum on Feel the Noize” which helped make them the first metal band in history to land the number one spot on the Billboard album charts. 

Enuff Z’nuff is touring in support of their latest album “10”. This is the first national tour for the band since 1998’s Hard Tour. Ironically, they beat out the Hard Tour headliners The Bullet Boys for the slot on this tour. Enuff Z’nuff broke onto the national scene in 1989 with two hit singles, “New Thing” and “Fly High Michelle” from their self titled debut album. Since then they have built a loyal underground audience and reaped mountains of critical praise for their Beatles inspired hard rock sound, even being named the Best New Artist by Rolling Stone Magazine in 1991 (which is ironic considering they received the reward for the sophomore album “Strength”) and garnishing the Album of the Year award in 1998 from our sister site Rocknworld.com for their last album “Paraphernalia”. 

Aside from the Glam Slam Metal Jam, L.A. Guns announced last week they would be launching their own summer tour with Faster Pussycat and the Bullet Boys.
