BAUHAUS Featuring Peter Murphy, Daniel Ash, Kevin Haskins and David J Announces Los Angeles Show on November 3, 2019. Tickets On-Sale Friday, September 13th
PiercingMetal Thoughts: Historically speaking, I never really followed the music of Bauhaus but I know many friends who found their music to be very influential. The English Gothic Rock band doing a special one night only appearance should be a spectacular event for all who are in attendance and its my hope that it leads to more dates that come over this way so I can check it out and do some show review. Readers might recall that the bands singer Peter Murphy was doing a residency at Le Poisson Rouge before suffering a heart attack. The residency was discussed HERE and the news about his promising recovery HERE and I imagine that we shall soon learn about his completing that run of shows that were postponed. Since I’ve not much actual background from experience on the group, I wonder what you diehards to their sound might think of this exclusive date. Personally I feel it will lead to an extended tour because The Misfits did an exclusive show and look what happened there. Numerous gigs in numerous cities. This is a great bit of news for their most dedicated fans and you can let me know what it means to you down in the comments section below. See you next time.
Hey there readers, this is just a quick reminder announcement about Zakk Wylde special appearance at the Union Square Guitar Center. The Berzerker will be presenting his brand new guitar line to his BLS Acolytes and you know you wouldn’t want to miss that. I figured with the musical week that we had here in NYC that it could have slipped your mind or maybe even some of you were unaware that it would be happening. Check out the poster and the press copy below.
The Press: Zakk Wylde has announced a select number of meet and greet appearances surrounding the launch of Wylde Audio. Fans will have a chance to meet the metal icon in-store and test out his new line of Wylde Audio guitars and more. Join Guitar Center and Wylde Audio for a special in-store appearance with the legendary guitarist.
Wylde chose to join forces with Guitar Center on a new line of guitars from his new company because he admired their commitment to encouraging new talent and supporting musicians of all skill levels and genres. Wylde’s new line of masterfully crafted guitars includes three unique models (Odin, Viking and Warhammer) that are available at Guitar Center stores and online. To celebrate, the former Ozzy Osbourne guitarist and Black Label Society founder is heading out on the road this September to meet with fans at select Guitar Center stores across the country.
PiercingMetal Thoughts: Simply put, there is nothing cooler than meeting one of the Rock stars that you admire and to do so for free. I’d bring some of the CD jackets along with you to get signed since that is always awesome. Generally these signings have a photo that is handed out but that is always while supplies last. So start lining up early to get the best spot in the place. Since I don’t think I will be making it I’ll be looking forward to your Tweets and Instagram postings. Have fun. My calendar entry for this event has the exact map for those interested so click HERE for that.
It might only be a few days away but in this case the Halloween treats are coming early with no trick required thanks to the fine folks at Forbidden Planet in NYC as they bring you an appearance by the legendary Horror Punk group The Misfits for this Misfits Records event. Yep, Jerry Only, Dez Cadena and Eric “Chupacabra” Arce will all be on point with their Osaka Popstar collaborator John Cafiero to sign the recently re-issued and expanded CD “Project 1950” along with a host of other goodies. Check out the cool poster below.
