TESLA - 4/25 The Palace Theatre - Canton, OH

Get ready on April 25th at the Palace Theatre in Canton, OH as the famed band TESLA will be taking the stage with special guest The Cringe.

Packing a catalog of charting songs, Tesla is always on the warpath of bringing you every show as a greatest hits package. They are also coming off with the recent release of their latest efforts “SHOCK.” Which was released on March 8th.


TICKETS: $85.00/$59.50/$47.50

It’s been said that lightning never strikes the same place twice. However, it does in the case of TESLA the band.

Over the course of their thirty plus year career, the critically acclaimed iconic Sacramento melodic hard rock quintet—Frank Hannon [guitar], Brian Wheat [bass], Jeff Keith [lead vocals], Troy Luccketta [drums], and Dave Rude [guitar]— have sold more than 25 million albums and performed to sold out crowds across the world. Since the 2016 release of their album, Mechanical Resonance Live! which features a brand-new track “Save That
Goodness” produced by Phil Collen of Def Leppard, TESLA has been touring nonstop. They have shared stages with STYX, Deep Purple, Cheap Trick, Joan Jett, REO Speedwagon and have performed headline shows the past 2 years consistently. Their recent tours have further solidified TESLA as a live concert Tour de Force.

Developing their already high energy show into a modern production, the band has added multimedia visual screens to enhance the concert performance. “The visual enhancement is a new thing for us and it’s made the band really play a tighter show. One of the songs, “What you Give” has a photo montage that shows us as youngsters and the fans have really enjoyed that!” Says guitarist, Frank Hannon.

In order to fully celebrate their 30 year plus history, TESLA not only performs their radio hits, but also includes a stripped-down acoustic set of “5 Man Acoustic Jam,” which was the bands biggest selling album that spawned the unplugged trend of the 1990s. The road crew seamlessly strips the stage to reflect the intimate vibe of the guys’ acoustic set. This includes a piano rendition of the song “Paradise,” which has become a favorite of the diehard TESLA fan.

TESLA is performing songs from their Forevermore, Psychotic Supper albums as well as touching on a few deeper tracks in the show. Lead vocalist Jeff Keith’s voice is still as raspy and soulful as it was in the beginning and the band prides themselves in performing live without the aid of prerecorded backing tracks.

The 21st century has become something of a renaissance for Tesla. Most recently, 2014’s Simplicity bowed at #14 on the Billboard Top 200. The group ignited ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel LIVE! in addition to scorching stages at
festivals such as Rocklahoma, Graspop Metal Meeting, and Sweden Rock Festival as well as the cruise Monsters of Rock! Remaining committed to philanthropy, they hosted a benefit for The Station nightclub fire in addition to playing a rally for the Sacramento Kings. They simply never stop. “I want people to feel like Tesla is still full of energy these days,” concludes Frank. “That’s it.”

“This is a band we started in Frank’s garage when I was 18, and Frank was 15,” Brian leaves off. “I’m proud we’re still standing this many years later. It’s a pretty cool place to be. I’d love for people to think, ‘That band has managed to stay in the game for 30 plus years, and they’re still playing great shows and putting out quality music.’ Now, just turn the music up when you listen to it. It was made to play loud.”

LORD DYING: Progressive Sludge Unit Announces North American Headlining Tour; Mysterium Tremendum Nears Release Via Entertainment One

Progressive sludge unit LORD DYING has confirmed a North American headlining tour. Scheduled to commence May 8th in Seattle, Washington, the journey will wind its way through more than two dozen cities and come to a close on June 8th in the band’s home city of Portland, Oregon. Support will be provided by psychedelic doom duo Year Of The Cobra. See all confirmed dates below.

LORD DYING will be touring in support of their impending new full-length, Mysterium Tremendum, set for worldwide release on April 26th via Entertainment One (eOne). Captured at Los Angeles’ West Valley Recording Studios in August of 2018 with producer Mike Plotnikoff (Fear Factory, In Flames), mastered by Howie Weinberg (Slayer, Nirvana, Pantera, Red Hot Chili Peppers), and swathed in the striking planetary landscape-inspired cover art of Steve R. Dodd, the band’s first full-length in four years is a monolithic, riff-heavy concept album delivering eleven heaving tracks that explore the many facets of dying and what may or may not exist in the afterlife. Emotionally nourishing both musically and lyrically, Mysterium Tremendum‘s exploration of death goes far beyond the mere longing for it in order to see what lies beyond (“Lacerated Psyche” is about the death of guitarist Chris Evans’ sister). There are endless layers to it; you might even find parallels between the record’s concept and life itself. It’s a journey. And in their quest to pursue death, LORD DYING has themselves found new life.

LORD DYING’s Mysterium Tremendum will be released on CD, double LP, and digital formats. For preorder options and to stream latest single, ” Freed From The Pressures Of Time,” visit

“…its slow build into soaring melodies and heavier sludge is extremely gratifying, feeling like a journey was accomplished over the song’s runtime.” – Decibel on “Freed From The Pressures Of Time” 

“…full of emotional intensity and some of the bands most nuanced performances to date… This record is triumphant and powerful, the next step forward for a metal band looking to find their way after years of silence.” — Two Guys Metal Reviews 

“…its use of swelling melancholia during the two-minute introduction sounds like the prelude to demise, complete with hints of violin that seamlessly metamorphise into a new brand of LORD DYING sludge. Guitarist/vocalist Erik Olson’s vocal range has expanded this time around, offering clear and refined death growls that complement the progressive and euphonious riffs.” — MetalSucks on “Freed From The Pressures Of Time”

Motley Crue - THE DIRT (movie review)

Motley Crue – THE DIRT (movie review)

By Dom Rini

I’m going to be brief and get to the point. This movie was taken from the Nikki Sixx book and was a pretty good representation of it.  The chronological factors were about 70% accurate in my eyes but who cares what I think. I thought the movie flowed very well. The acting, as best as they could for these parts did a good job pulling it off. I enjoyed how they started the band up and all that good stuff, things people never really think about. It does take a lot of good chemistry to keep a band together and harmonious.

In my opinion I think MGK did a great job pulling off the Tommy Lee role. He looked so seasonal on the drums and played his character very well.  Most of the times you were so sucked into the story-line that you forget they are just actors and its just a movie. Which was good, because I have a habit for over analyzing movies and commercials.  The kid who played Skyler did a pretty good job and had me believing her. The sad parts where pretty touching.

I think if you are a fan of Motley Crue and want to see something fun for a change than check it out. It’s worth it.  Plus it had lots and lots of boobs in it!  I wanted to see more Corabi material in it but hey you only have so much time to put into a movie. I recommend it!

4/5 Boobs Rating

Would really love to see this broke down into more pieces.

Check out Motley Crue’s movie THE DIRT its everywhere but they say exclusively on Netflix.

Oh one thing that bugged me out was Mick Mars guitar. It was an Epiphone and not a Les Paul Custom. Must have been product placement.  That’s about it. Take an hour of your life and check it out. Had some good music in it.  Oh one more thing. When Nikki was a little kid he destroyed his record collection and I saw a Kiss Dynasty record! That came out in 79. The scene was supposed to be 75 or something like that.
