Day in Rock Report for 11/20/2018
The US trek will begin at the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens, FL on April 20 and hit eleven more cities before wrapping up at Soldier Field in Chicago, IL on June 21.
A special fan presale will begin on Wednesday, November 28 at 10am local time via rollingstones.com with general public tickets available starting Friday, November 30 at 10am local time.
"It's a thrill when we play stadiums in the States," says Mick Jagger, "the energy is always amazing!"
"I've always loved playing the States," adds Keith Richards. "It's a great crowd." See the dates and watch the video trailerhere.
While the band was performing the song "Bother" a fan attempted to rush the Slipknot frontman and was tackled by a security guard. The incident was caught on video and uploaded online here.
After the security guard took down the fan and dragged him off, Taylor said from the stage "Sucks to be you, dude." Then at the conclusion of the song he said, "Don't come on my stage, motherf***er."
Taylor still seemed to enjoy the show. He tweeted later that night, "Moscow, what a gift. You were INSANE!! All my love to you and yours!! See you again soon!!"
"Europe!!! Are you ready for 2019???" says the group. News of the five-concert run follows previously-announced appearances at Germany's Hurricane Festival and Southside Festivals in late June.
Tickets for the new dates will go on sale on Friday, November 23 at 10am local time via the usual outlets. The Foo Fighters wrapped up their 2018 live schedule last month when they completed an extensive North American tour in support of "Concrete And Gold" in Calgary, AB on October 23.
The group will next be seen as part of an all-star lineup of rockers honoring late Soundgarden singer Chris Cornell at the "I Am The Highway: A Tribute To Chris Cornell" concert event at The Forum in Los Angeles on Wednesday, January 16.
Hosted by ABC-TV late night host Jimmy Kimmel, the tribute and charity show will feature performances from the members of Metallica, Soundgarden, Temple Of The Dog, Audioslave, Ryan Adams and many more. See the dateshere.
The iconic vocalist was asked about his recent comments slamming the Rock Hall as "an utter, complete load of bollocks" when he spoke with The Jerusalem Post and he expanded on his opinion about the controversial institution.
He told them, "I was so annoyed with that coverage because they took my statement out of context to make it seem like I was upset that we weren't in the hall of fame.
"I'm really happy we're not there and I would never want to be there. If we're ever inducted I will refuse - they won't bloody be having my corpse in there."
He added, "Rock'n'roll music does not belong in a mausoleum in Cleveland. It's a living, breathing thing, and if you put it in a museum, then it's dead. It's worse than horrible, it's vulgar."
The nine-show series will begin with the first of three concerts in Germany when the Florida rockers play Erfurt on June 17; the run will include appearances at Belgium's Graspop Metal Meeting and Switzerland's Rock The Ring festivals before the group play four UK events that will wrap up in Birmingham on June 30.
Lynyrd Skynyrd will be joined by guests Blackberry Smoke in Germany and Status Quo in the UK. Tickets for the summer 2019 shows are now on sale via the usual outlets. See the dateshere.
Billboard reports the set's newly-released 50th anniversary reissue re-enters the Billboard 200 at No. 6 following opening week sales of 63,000 units, of which 52,000 were in traditional album sales.
The project presents a 2018 stereo mix of the record by producer Giles Martin and mix engineer Sam Okell, marking the first time the double album has been remixed and delivered with additional demos and session recordings.
"In remixing 'The White Album,' we've tried to bring you as close as possible to The Beatles in the studio," explains Martin in his written introduction for the new edition. "We've peeled back the layers of the 'Glass Onion' with the hope of immersing old and new listeners into one of the most diverse and inspiring albums ever made." Read morehere.
The trek will feature support from Necrot and Blood Incantation on all dates and Immolation will be joining the trek for the final week which will not feature Cannibal Corpse.
Cannibal Corpse's Alex Webster had this to say, "We're really looking forward to our second appearance on the Decibel Tour; they always put together a killer lineup and this time is no exception. We're particularly excited to be hitting the road with our friends Morbid Angel. In fact, this will be the first time we've toured together in the US."
Morbid Angel's Steve Tucker added, "Everyone here in the Morbid Angel camp are stoked to do this tour with Cannibal Corpse. To celebrate, Morbid Angel will be performing a mean-ass set of songs that will cover the entirety of our years of kicking ass." See the dates
The first song from our EP "Might Be Keeping You" came to life almost instantly, Markus (Singer/bassist) had the verse riff and then we started jamming in our rehearsal space and in about 1-2 hours the song was almost finished!
Nicklas D (drummer) has a lot of great runs on this track and we recorded it mostly live in the studio! Except for vocals and solo guitar. It's a pretty psych-y track with lots of wah, wah guitar and I remember our studio engineer (Kristian Lakeson) told me to just look out the windows, out over the Usken lake while tracking the solos, just to get that extra feeling haha!! Lakesong music labs have a beautiful sight over lakes, forests, and horizons! Perfect for making music! It's really surrealistic that 3 days after the release of the EP we were contacted by Classic Rock Magazine and they wanted this song on their cover CD of the August number. Sure thing we gladly sent it to them.
Hearing is believing. Now that you know the story behind the song, listen for yourself here and learn more about the band and EPright here!
