Motley Crue fans across the land have been eagerly awaiting the release of “The Dirt” film which is of course based on the book of the same name. The trailer dropped a couple of weeks ago and we shared it HERE in case you missed it. Now, depending on your geographic location, “The Dirt” is available for immediate streaming and rewatching to your hearts content. Let’s check out the Official Poster, premise and casting along with some editorial notes.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: This sounds cool to us and we’ve already rallied behind the Official Trailer for the film which I hope that you diehard Crue fans saw on THIS LINK. If not, please take a look and chime in appropriately on it if you are so compelled.
When I began hearing rumblings about screeners for the upcoming Motley Crue biopic “The Dirt” hitting some reviewers desks, I was wondering when the rest of the world would be receiving the films first trailer. Fortunately for all of us that trailer is here now and ready for you to rock along to. Oh and before you ask, I didn’t get one of these screeners myself so I was as eager to see any footage as the most ardent of Crue fans. Let’s check it out.
Fans of the mighty Linkin Park will be excited to know that the band has recently announced their “One More Light” tour and since I didn’t get the “official” press release about it all, I defer to the groups announcement on their Facebook Page which you can read below. Dig in.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: Though I’ve been listening to the band since the first album, I only ever caught them once in concert and that was for the second release. I’ve never actually “covered” their live shows as a member of press but do have a few of the recordings here on the website and I think that I am going to get this one off the bucket list and be a part of the closest show to my region. I’ve never listened to Machine Gun Kelly at all but that happens sometimes so if I do manage to attend I will be sure to check him out as well. What do you diehards think about these dates? Will you be attending one or two or three of them? Let me know down in the comments section below.
