Australian Tours

There have been a ton of great bands touring Australia lately, particularly in the Heavy Metal genre. I know many of the aussies on this forum went to see Ratt and Winger a few weeks back. Those are just two of the great bands that have come to our shores this year. I think many bands are starting to realise that they do have quite a solid and dedicated fan base in Australia, and we would love to see more of it. A few of the upcoming tours for early '08 that I know of include:

 

Confirmed

Bon Jovi

W.A.S.P.

The Poor (Supporting W.A.S.P.)

Helloween

Black Majesty (Supporting Helloween)

Iron Maiden

Ozzy Osbourne

Saxon (cancelled but will re-schedule)

Toto

HIM

Nightwish

Black Rebel Motorcycle Club

Budgie

Velvet Revolver

Dream Theatre

Hardcore Superstar

 

Rumours

AC/DC

Baby Animals

Extreme

 

AND Jeff Scott Soto needs to re-schedule...

 

 

Anyone else?? Any other likely true-mours??

 

And a question for the aussies on this forum. Which artists/bands would you like to see tour Australia in the near future. For me it would be without a doubt - Whitesnake and John Waite. I would also love for Edguy to come back...they said they would so they have to.

how can you be excited about the Poor? i dont get it as their album at best was... poor.

 

What, didn't you dig The Poor's WHO CARES? That's a fantastic old-school hard rock record! It was a very nice welcome surprise when it came out in the ultra-dull mid 90s. It's worth the price just for the track "More Wine Waiter Please" :beerbang:

I hated The Poor too. :( I recall it being very average to these ears.

Highly average, one of the worst Aussie releases. I stand by it. Ive owned it, ive tried to enjoy. Failed. Average.

What are you doing on the net at midnight on a Saturday night? We both suck.

I'm glad one of us is out there fighting for our right to party. There is a pug sitting on the floor looking up at me - now it's standing up on two feet leaning on me, telling me with it's face it wants to sit on my lap. I told him I have to wrap presents but he doesn't seem to understand. I wonder if it's because he's so small. He just tried to jump up on me now. He's getting a little restless. He was just there for the last hour as I replied to threads here. He sure is cute, though.

Is there any real possibility of any of these - except maybe the Poison and Warrant rumours I did hear, and who knows with Def Lep - I guess they could come here. But is there really any chance of Danger Danger or Trixter, or even Europe (not that I'd be TOO Interested these days) hitting these shores??

    • Ezzakly. I was having this conversation with my friend this weekend. It took us a while, but we're finally building up our football program. I believe that has a lot to do with the amount of immigrants we've had. They move to Canada and have no love for hockey; they wanna play football. Wish this had happened decades ago. My folks never let me play hockey, because it's so bloody expensive, but there wasn't a decent football program. 
    • I think I recall listening to one of their albums. Don't they have a Southern Rock/Country vibe? Or maybe I'm just reading into their name, which makes me think of Brad Paisley. 
    • Death on the Road-Iron Maiden
    • Photo credit: Tim Saccenti Metallica dropped an atomic bomb this morning, announcing the brand new album 72 Seasons and sharing the first single, “Lux Æterna”. “Lux Æterna” is old school thrash, picking right up where Hardwired… to Self-Destruct left off, only this time, guitarist Kirk Hammett was involved in the writing. 72 Seasons will be available April 14, 2023, via the band’s own Blackened Recordings. Produced by Greg Fidelman with founding members James Hetfield and Lars Ulrich, and clocking in at over 77 minutes, the 12-track album is Metallica’s first full length collection of new material since 2016’s Hardwired…To Self-Destruct. Here’s the track listing for 72 Seasons: 01. 72 Seasons 02. Shadows Follow 03. Screaming Suicide 04. Sleepwalk My Life Away 05. You Must Burn! 06. Lux Æterna 07. Crown Of Barbed Wire 08. Chasing Light 09. If Darkness Had A Son 10. Too Far Gone? 11. Room Of Mirrors 12. Inamorata “72 seasons. The first 18 years of our lives that form our true or false selves,” said Hetfield of the album’s title. “The concept that we were told ‘who we are’ by our parents. A possible pigeonholing around what kind of personality we are. I think the most interesting part of this is the continued study of those core beliefs and how it affects our perception of the world today. Much of our adult experience is reenactment or reaction to these childhood experiences. Prisoners of childhood or breaking free of those bondages we carry.”   https://bloody-disgusting.com/music/3741721/metallica-returns-with-new-album-single-and-tour/
    • Yeah I wasn't expecting them to do much as it is their first World Cup since 86....at least they are competing hard.....now if they start making the World Cup on a regular basis then expectations will rise in the years to come....
    • New single. From Frontiers: Revolution Saints, the band centered around vocalist/drummer Deen Castronovo, have returned with a new line-up and a new single, 'Eagle Flight'. Castronovo is joined by new companions, bassist Jeff Pilson and guitarist Joel Hoekstra for Revolution Saints 2.0 and 'Eagle Flight' is their brand new musical statement announcing their arrival.    Revolution Saints was initially put together by Serafino Perugino, President and Head of A&R for Frontiers Records, to showcase the stunning voice of Deen Castronovo (Journey, Bad English, Hardline). Castronovo has always been a well respected drummer, but fans who took note of his background vocals over his career and who attended Journey shows and saw him take lead vocals on 'Mother, Father' during the band's set, came to realize he also had an amazing voice. Revolution Saints was, and always has been, a vehicle to show the world Deen's incredible singing talents.   For the first three Revolution Saints albums, "Revolution Saints", "Light In The Dark", and "Rise", Deen was joined by bassist/vocalist Jack Blades (Night Ranger) and guitarist Doug Aldrich (The Dead Daisies, ex-Whitesnake, DIO). Produced by Alessandro Del Vecchio, those three albums brought back the classic melodic rock style that thrilled and delighted legions of fans in the ‘80s and ‘90s and still does today! Inspiring, uplifting vocals, soaring melodies, and hooks for days is what you get in spades across those three albums.    While Revolution Saints MK I left an indelible mark on the melodic rock world, it was time for MK II to be born. Deen, having recently re-joined Journey, was feeling invigorated and inspired and ready to sing his ass off. Filling Blades and Aldrich's shoes would be no easy feat, but, mercifully, the exact right guys were found for the job. Joel Hoekstra is a current member of Whitesnake, Trans-Siberian Orchestra, and Iconic, as well as having his own solo project, Joel Hoekstra's 13 and is an absolutely stunning guitar player, able to play multiple styles. Jeff Pilson, currently a member of Foreigner, Black Swan, and The End Machine, is also known for his time in Dokken and his more recent production work. Two stellar musicians to compliment Deen's singing and drumming is exactly what was needed for Revolution Saints 2.0 and that's exactly what we've got here.    Fans of Revolution Saints first three releases are going to find much to be delighted with here with the new, rejuvenated Rev Saints and their brand new single, 'Eagle Flight'!    A new studio album will be released in the first half of 2023.    Line-up:  Deen Castronovo: lead vocals, drums  Joel Hoekstra: guitars  Jeff Pilson: bass        
    • And unfortunately, for Canada, they're all better teams.
