Win Tix To See Living Colour In NYC On 4/6/2013

Poster - Living Colour at Irving Plaza - 2013

The Details: Back in 1993 the band Living Colour set the world aflame with their debut album “Vivid” and now on the 20th Anniversary of the album’s release they will be performing it in full along with other gems from their repertoire. When this album first hit, one could be assured of seeing the video for the opening track “Cult Of Personality” on MTV several times a day. While the music world was in throes of Grunge, the powerful sound of an all African-American Heavy Metal band was something to contend with thanks to the blistering riffs of Vernon Reid, vocal register of Corey Glover and break down the walls rhythm section of Muzz Skillings and William Calhoun. That being said, I’m excited to announce that thanks to the fine folks at Livenation, PiercingMetal shall be putting some fans into the NYC appearance. Read on below to learn how to participate.

Here are a few links to some of the bands work along with their pivotal “Vivid” release. To my knowledge the album has not been re-released as an expanded edition but perhaps the milestone anniversary will find this being the case sometime soon.

  1. I first got interested in Living Colour when I saw Doug Wimbish (the bass player) play with Tarja. He did stuff with his bass that I haven’t seen before, so I decided to check out his band next time they play. I’ve seen Living Color twice since then and was not disappointed. Vernon Reid, the guitarist, was amazing as well. I also got to meet them and they were very nice people. I recommend this band to all the metalheads.
