PiercingMetal Thoughts: I just loved the show that took place in our region last year over at The Rock aka The Prudential Center and had a blast with my friends rocking out to their classic songs as they hit us like artillery. I missed all of the openers except for Suicidal Tendencies but that night I didn’t care at all. It was good fun from beginning to end. I think the folks that are getting to also enjoy a set by The Damned are in for a treat and if that band is for some reason new to you, check out a not too long ago Concert Review we did HERE. They are also a favorite Punk band of mine, and actually one that I listened to BEFORE ever even giving Misfits a try. Weird huh. Anyway, what do you folks think about this news and do you more localized folks in the readership think they will bring this to Madison Square Garden, Barclays Center or Nassau Coliseum? Chime in down below.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: Now I’ve only ever seen the group in action once but I love the whole idea about them and find them to be very entertaining. I’m going to do my best to be a part of the Terminal 5 gig in September and will be certain to catch the opening performance of Avatar who I greatly enjoy. That’s a band you need to see as well if you haven’t already. What do you folks think about this news? I hope you are ready to rally for this kawaii band in full force. This will please the Fox God whom they report to. Chime in down below in the comments section.
