Shinedown will be interviewed by author and journalist Brad Tolinski. The event is part of the BackStory Events online series and will be live streamed by Guitar World magazine.
Since it’s lunchtime, let’s send you all out for a nice breather with another tour announcement. This one lines out the co-headlining run being plotted by Godsmack and Shinedown and their special guests Like A Storm and Red Sun Rising.
The Press Release:
This summer, rock fans across the country should prepare to be rocked hard when the GODSMACK/SHINEDOWN co-headlining summer tour hits more than 30 cities. Produced by Live Nation, the six-week outdoor amphitheater tour kicks off July 22 and make stops in Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Dallas, Atlanta, New York and many more before wrapping September 2. These dates come as both multi-platinum groups are set to release new albums: Godsmack’s WHEN LEGENDS RISE (April 27 via BMG) and Shinedown’s ATTENTION ATTENTION (May 4 via Atlantic Records). Tickets are available to the general public starting Friday, March 23 at LiveNation.com. Select dates of the summer tour will also be part of the popular Live Nation Ticket to Rock program. The Ticket to Rock bundle offers fans a low-cost way to see many of their favorite rock artists live in their area all summer long.
“We really believe this could be a great moment in our band’s career and we plan on running on the road until at least fall of 2019,” Sully Erna of Godsmack says. “We love the guys in Shinedown and we all go way back. There is a very strong mutual respect between our camps and we feel that this tour is going to be a must see!” Adds the singer, songwriter and guitarist: “We’re preparing ourselves to be on the top of our game!”
“It’s all about impact, and making a statement,” says Brent Smith, Shinedown’s lead singer. “We are creating a show for the fans that is powerful, passionate, and sonically inspiring. The audience has given us a platform to be ourselves, and create something spectacular. That being said SHINEDOWN, and GODSMACK will most certainly NOT let them down. This will be the Rock & Roll event of the year. In other words “IT’S ABOUT TO GET HEAVY!!!”

Although the Iron Maiden US Tour was not as extensive in terms of stops as most of the Metal Legions would have preferred, what’s done is done and they have been here for the first leg of the “Book Of Souls” Tour. Earlier today the news started being circulated about the bands European run so here is the information on the second leg of the tour. You might be wondering why I would even document a European run but this is Iron Maiden that we are talking about so they defy the normal laws of Metaldom. Dig in.
Maiden founder member and bass player Steve Harris says,
“As it’s been so long since our last full UK arena tour, we really wanted to get to our fans in as many cities as possible. We’re really looking forward to it, especially visiting places we haven’t been to for a very long time like Leeds where we haven’t played since 2005 and Liverpool where we haven’t played since 1990. The whole band is really enjoying this tour and although we love playing festivals and stadiums, it is terrific to return to the intimacy and atmosphere of arenas. The songs from The Book Of Souls album and the new Maya-themed Eddies and stage sets have gone down really well and fan reaction has been amazing. And of course we know our fans appreciate us playing a lot of the older songs too, which we will continue to do.”
The Carnival of Madness Tour featuring Shinedown with Halestorm, Black Stone Cherry and Whiskey Myers will bring it on in Brooklyn and the new ampitheater.
As the spring continues to be sprung and the summer heat heads our way the touring announcements are starting to get more fast and furious. This is a good one so scroll past the poster to read the massive press release that I received.
