Australian Tours

Recommended Posts

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.

WARRANT, TRIXTER, DE MONT, BB STEAL, DEF LEPPARD, POISON, DANGER DANGER, EUROPE

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??

    • idk guys, I think you can only polish a turd so much. It's definitely a great attempt and as whiplash1972 says, there have been a lot of such projects since, what, 2007ish? But IMO St. Anger has never been a bad album only because of the snare drum, or the lack of guitar solos, or the long songs. It's a bad album because it's an album full of bad songs. Metallica is supposed to be badass! This is not that! Listen to Invisible Kid or Purify and tell me what's even a little cool about those songs. The whole thing is just so whiny and cringey, definitely a product of its era which was the worst for metal as a genre.
    • Didn’t realise Def Leppard were a synthwave band, ‘cause these guys sound like ‘Hysteria’ era Def Leppard more than anything else I can think of. 😉 I was wondering the other day how many people miss out on good music because it is not under a label they desire. Very sad. 
    • Cold Blooded Bitch - Crown of Thorns
    • Don't forget there is a time different time zone from Australia to America.
    • Madison Talk of the Town Masquerade Roulette Might be missing.  
    • Nuff said. It's comments like these that are so helpful. Saved me 30 seconds clicking a YouTube like 😀
    • From Lions Pride Music: In the vibrant era of late ’80s and early ’90s, when Hard Rock ruled the charts and iconic bands were born in the lively streets of L.A., a lesser-known yet equally formidable force emerged from the heart of Germany – Wiesbaden to be precise. It was in this cultural backdrop that five talented musicians converged, forming a band that would redefine Melodic Hard Rock. Thus, SHEELA was born. Their creative hub was a basement rehearsal space in an old street house, which would later evolve into Markus Teske’s legendary BAZEMENT Studio. This studio would become the birthplace of several successful albums for bands like U.D.O., Vanden Plas, Dominci, The New Roses, and more. In 1995, SHEELA released their debut album, ”BURNED DOWN,” meticulously crafted and recorded at the BAZEMENT Studio. The album, showcasing a blend of powerful vocals, compelling guitar lines, and intricate arrangements, achieved instant success in Japan. Renowned magazines like BURRN and ROCK HARD recognized their potential, with the former awarding the album 87 points. ”BURNED DOWN” opens with the captivating ”LONG TIME,” a track featuring a memorable guitar line in the chorus. The album progresses through the anthemic ”READY” and the soulful ”HOLDIN’ ON,” leaving an indelible mark on the Hard Rock scene of the time. The success of the album paved the way for a tour and, later in 1995, personnel changes in the band.

The success of the album paved the way for a tour and, later in 1995, personnel changes in the band. Their second album, ”CHANGES,” dropped in 1997, again making waves in Japan before conquering European audiences during a tour with Canadian superstars SAGA. In the subsequent years, SHEELA shared stages with legendary acts like FATES WARNING, won the KARLSBERG CHALLENGE, and made a mark in the USA by performing at the STURGIS RALLY alongside bands like STYX and REO SPEEDWAGON. The journey continued with their third album, ”STRAIGHT HEARTED ONES” (2001), featuring guest musician Michael Sadler of SAGA. SHEELA toured extensively, opening for heavyweights like NAZARETH, MANFRED MAN, POISON, and even sharing the stage with Germany’s most successful Rockband – THE SCORPIONS. However, like any great rock story, SHEELA encountered lineup changes, and in 2002, Markus Teske bid farewell, leaving Christian Moser as the sole remaining member of the original lineup. Despite the changes, SHEELA’s impact endured, with discussions and online buzz surrounding their music even in 2018. Described as ”One of Germany’s secrets,” the timeless classics ”LONG TIME” and ”BURNED DOWN” continue to resonate with fans, prompting a resurgence in interest. In 2023, SHEELA signed a landmark deal with Lions Pride Music, a renowned record label based in Denmark. This collaboration brought forth a reissue of their debut album ”Burned Down,” remixed, remastered, and adorned with a new artwork. This worldwide release on CD and Digital platforms reintroduced the timeless magic of SHEELA to a global audience, reaffirming their status as pioneers of Melodic Hard Rock. SHEELA’s journey, marked by musical evolution, international recognition, and an enduring legacy, is a testament to the band’s commitment to creating timeless Hard Rock that transcends eras. As we look back at the album that started it all, ”BURNED DOWN,” SHEELA’s legacy lives on, leaving an indelible mark on the history of German rock. Sheela is: Wolfgang Ilsy Terne – Lead Vocals & Guitars Christian Moser – Guitars & Backing Vocals Markus Teske – Keyboards & Backing Vocals Tony Spagone – Bass & Backing Vocals Jojo Nimtz – Drums & Backing Vocals Special Guests: Patricia Loesch – Backing Vocals Martin Hofmann – Backing Vocals Robert Henrich – Harp Stefan Djokic – Slide Guitar Recorded in 1995 @ Bazement Studios, Wiesbaden, Germany 1995. Re-Mixed & Re-Mastered by Markus Teske @ Bazement Studios 2023 Produced by Sheela Chris Siloma : Chris Siloma Executive Producer: Carsten Nielsen        
    • Edvard Munch's favourite band.
    • Debut album 'Portraits' out May 31.   From Art Of Melody Music / Burning Minds Music Group:   The band was founded a decade ago under the name ”Alex Mari & The Lovers”, with the aim of writing original material. Meanwhile, in order to create good chemistry between the members, the group began playing together on several live shows, performing cover songs of legendary international artists just like Queen, Toto, Police and AC/DC.   After few line-up changes, the band was finalized with three members: Alex Mari  (Michele Luppi Band, Barock Project, Ophiura, plus guest appearances as studio backing vocalist with Rhapsody of Fire) on vocals, Gianluca Pisana on drums and backing vocals, and Sebastiano Barbirato on guitar and backing vocals. For their debut album, they established their new identity with the name, Night Pleasure Hotel.   The first studio chapter of this very promising trio offers a perfect slice of classic American AOR, reminiscent of Survivor (Bickler era), Foreigner, Prism and Toto. The album features contributions from talented special guest stars –  Michele Luppi (Whitesnake), Luca Zabbini (Barock Project, PFM), Paolo Caridi (Ellefson-Soto, Reb Beach, Geoff Tate, Krell), Gianluca Tagliavini (PFM), Roberto Galli (Michele Luppi’s Heaven, Danger Zone, Wheels Of Fire) and Iarin Munari (Red Canzian, Roberto Vecchioni, Paolo Vallesi).   Night Pleasure Hotel are sure to become one of the best newcomers of the current melodic rock scene, thanks to their infectious sound, mixed and mastered by Roberto Priori (Danger Zone, Wheels Of Fire, Raintimes, StreetLore).   The release of ”Portraits” is scheduled for May 31, 2024 via Art Of Melody Music / Burning Minds Music Group. The CD booklet features introductory liner notes written by Samuele Mannini (Melodicrock.it), while cover art and CD graphics have been developed by Aeglos Art (Wheels Of Fire, Platens, StreetLore, Raintimes, Room Experience, Nightblaze).    The first single of the album, ”Just This Once”, will be launched with an official video on March 28, 2024.   Tracklist:   01. Niko 02. Just This Once 03. We Say Goodbye 04. Walking Through The Horizon 05. You And I 06. Sweet Melodies Of Rain 07. Shivers 08. What I Feel 09. Julia  10. Suddenly 11. For You 12. Quella Sera (Bonus Track)   Night Pleasure Hotel is:   Alex Mari: Lead Vocals, Backing Vocals, Bass, Guitar, Keyboards Sebastiano Barbirato: Guitar, Bass, Backing vocals Gianluca Pisana: Drums, Piano, Backing Vocals
