The Details: Her name is synonymous with Rock and Roll history based on her work with the band The Runaways and while the group only had a four year tenure back in their heyday; there is no question that what she did with Joan Jett, Lita Ford and Micki Steele was not something fantastic when it came upon the scene. The NYC Rockers have been able to keep up with what both Joan and Lita have been doing for awhile now but its been some time since we have welcomed Cherie to our metropolis and that is why it excites me to present this new contest thanks to the fine folks at Livenation. Read more on how you participate.

When and Where: Wednesday November 6th at Gramercy Theatre (127 East 23rd Street NYC)

To Participate: Now since I myself only know of Cherie’s contributions to music based on The Runaways, I have decided to keep this one simple and ask for three reasons that this show excites you and what you hope comes from it. Give me something good. I’ll be responding to the winning comments directly so please be sure to enter your full real name and a working email address in the comment form but not in the comment itself. Of course if you enter a comment with a Twitter handle then put your name in the comment so we have it. We do need this for list purposes after all. I always suggest subscribing to the comments as well. Go get ‘em and maybe we will rock out together at this show.

Restrictions: While all contests are open to our regional site readers, Facebook Page likers and Twitter Followers we do look at new responders first in order to give everyone a fair shot at enjoying a show on the provider and us. I do still encourage all to participate because you never know just how many tickets we are offering and when that last person might have won. The main restriction for this one is if you had won any of the contests over the last three weeks or so you are not eligible for this one (that means UFO , Soulfly, Ill Nino, Misfits, Arkona, Dying Fetus and Finntroll). Please note that Guest and Anonymous comments while approved are NOT eligible to win the contest either since we do need to know who you are.

Since most of you know the talents of Ms. Currie from her work with The Runaways I have embedded a couple of their releases codes here below along with some solo work. Investigate, purchase, support. That is what keeps this music scene vital after all.

  1. Ever since i saw Cherie play the tragically doomed teenage character of Annie in the 1980 film Foxes (with Jodie Foster) i have been obsessed. To find out that she was in a hard rock band with Joan Jett & Lita Ford (and they were all “underage” at the time) made me acquire every Runaways record (although Cherie is only on the first 2 studio LPs). I even have the album she did with her twin sister Marie called Messin’ With The Boys (not her strongest effort). I also read her memoir Neon Angel. Of course, this interest peaked long before the 2010 Runaways biopic. I really look forward to seeing her live. This is my first (and only?) chance to see her perform and i really look forward to being there.

  2. This is a must see Show as she rarely goes on Tour. Cherie Currie is now a wood-carving artist using a chainsaw to create her works. Hopefully we’ll see the Chainsaw on Stage and hear many Runaways songs as well. I have not yet read the Neon Angel Autobiography-book but i’m looking forward to buying it.

  3. Congratulations George Norton and Samuel Jylha you have each won a ticket to see Cherie Currie on Wednesday 11/6 at Gramercy Theatre. Stay tuned for the details on how you claim this.

  4. The Runaways is everything cool about chicks in music. They (Cherie especially) embodied teenage sex and rebellion. They sparked a change in the music industry and paved the way for modern women in rock. They put on some lipstick and a leather jacket, threw the rules out the window, gave the world the finger and became the icons we know today.

  5. Wow Haylie, if anyone hit the nail on the head it was you so congrats on winning a ticket to the show on 11/6; I will be posting the full details on how you claim it shortly so please stay tuned.

  6. My reasons to see Cherie? I missed the Runaways. Runaways. Have seen Lita several time. I have seen Joan Jett several times. Time to see Cherie. (Wish Jackie was with her, as Gene Simmons was a big influence.)

  7. Okay my fiends that about does it, this contest for Cherie Currie’s show in NYC is closed so please no more contributions. Congratulations to all of our winners which run from beginning to end in George, Samuel, Haylie and Tom. We shall all be rocking the paradise on Wednesday (oh wait, wrong band). To claim your ticket just go to the venue box office and ask for the Livenation list. You will get your ticket then. If you encounter any issue, ask for an onsite manager and cite that the contest was done in conjunction with Livenation Marketing and PiercingMetal. I will be there as well so do say hello if you see me.
