Win A Ticket To See Punky Meadows @ B.B. King Blues Club On 4/29/2017

The Details: Classic Rock and Progressive fans will likely remember the name Punky Meadows as being the man behind the six-string for the legendary Angel. The band was something else visually and had melodic sounds that felt like something out of Heaven itself (oh come on you know I had to go there). The guitarist has assembled a brand-new band of talented players and released an album entitled “Fallen Angel” last year. Meadows returns to the venerated Times Square club to continue supporting this record and thanks to the marketing team at the venue, some PiercingMetal Fans will be hitting this gig for free. Check out the details for this contest below.

When and Where: Saturday, April 29th at B.B. King Blues Club (237 West 42nd Street)

To Participate: I’m going to keep this one as simple as possible since I myself am not an expert in the body of work that Meadows has done over the years but I am hoping some of you can enlighten me about it. With this in mind please just give me three things about his albums, a favorite song or concert experience that is high on your rating scale and why this is the case. Make this good reading because the stuff remains on the website and can likely inspire new fans as well – like me  Now since there are likely newbies in the mix that want to be a part of the fun, those people can get me three solid reasons why they must be at the show. Just make it a little interesting and more than “because he rocks dude” because that is just too un-original and boring. I’ll be responding to the comments that I like most right below their answer. This is for a single ticket only and no plus one requests can be honored. Sorry.

– Enter only enter once. The comments are moderated and will not appear immediately after submission.
– Number them for ease of knowing if you followed the instructions or not if I’ve asked for a list.
– Please enter your full real name in the comment form along with an email address that you can be reached at if you win. This is necessary for listing purposes. Please do NOT put this information in the comment itself out of privacy concerns.
– Only enter if you can and will attend the show should you win and it’s logistically possible for you to do so. Essentially if you live a couple of hundred miles away we don’t think you’re coming here for a show in NYC.
– Subscribe to the comments and check back to see the responses so you know if you won or not.
– Make sure you are entering a NEW comment and not replying to another contestant’s entry as that makes notifying you difficult should you be marked as a winner.

Bring it on as this one will close by 3pm on Friday, April 28th since the list must get to house before end of business. Quick one I know but that happens sometimes.

Restrictions: PiercingMetal’s contests are open to our loyal readers, Facebook Page likers and Twitter Followers but that being said we are still looking for the new names first to participate since we want EVERYONE to get a chance at enjoying the show on us. Don’t let that stop you from entering of course but we do keep track based on the overall demand for this stuff at this point. However, if you just won a contest recently you will likely not have a chance for this one. Please note that Anonymous or Guest comments will not be approved.

If You Win This Contest: If you are marked as one of the winners for this contest, here is how to claim the ticket. On the night of the show go to the venue podium and ask for the House Guest List. Please bring proper identification (driver’s license, passport, NYC ID card) and your name will be checked off that list for you to enter. If you encounter any difficulty, please politely ask for an onsite manager and cite how this contest was done in coordination with venue Marketing and PiercingMetal.com. Check the show listings that night so you arrive with plenty of time to get a good spot. You can also expect an email to the provided address reminding you of the win so make sure that @piercingmetal.com is listed as a safe domain to receive notes from.

  1. I have been a fan of Angel since their debut album. They had a great Bonham influenced drummer Barry Brandt, killer singer, catchy riffs and keyboards, what more do you need? Everyone loves the song The Tower, my favorite is The Fortune off of the Helluva Band album. Other favorites are Cast The First Stone, Mirrors and Mariner.

    Punky was in a Psychodelic band called Cherry People before Angel and they put out a few albums

    He was also in a classic rock band called Bux, who also put out at least one album.

    Punky’s real name is Edwin and he’s 67, can you believe that! he still looks very young and probably had the best hair in rock, lol!

    I will bring my good camera and take pictures too if I win, Cheers!

    1. I have to look up some of these other bands that you mentioned since I have not heard of them at all. I’d check the venue camera policy if you are bringing “the good camera” since a lot of places require that handy photo pass that we press types need to specially request to come in but a good point and shoot is likely no problem. That said I am assigning one of our tickets to you so please refer to the part of the contest marked “If You Win This Contest” for all of the details on how to claim it.

  2. I love Angel. Punky Meadows ,living legend. I had a bunch of their albums. My favorite being the debut. I also dig the live album. White Hot is good. Great version of Ain’t Gonna Eat Out My Heart Anymore. And they were on Kiss’s record label Casablanca

    1. Straight to the point for sure Seth so let’s mark one of those tickets down for you as well. Be sure to check out the “If You Win This Contest” part of the post to know all of the details on how you claim this at the show.

  3. Could’ve sworn I posted! Anyway I’ve never seen him before but have heard good things! I’m as bad as you when it comes to thinking of albums and such but would hate to miss him live!

    1. Generally we ask for a little more as a submission but this one came to us with little wiggle room so I am going to allow it. Who’s better than us right? Congrats Silver there will be a ticket for the show under your name for Punky at B.B. King’s on Saturday. Please refer to the “If You Win This Contest” part of the post for details.

  4. Okay friends this contest is over so no more entries please. Congratulations to all of our winners who were notified beneath their submission. Be sure to check the part of the post marked “If You Win This Contest” for all the necessary details. I’ll be rocking at this show as well so if you see me around please say hello.
