Godsmack and Shinedown to Bring Nation-Wide Tour to Downtown Las Vegas Events Center Friday, August 3

GODSMACK AND SHINEDOWN TO BRING NATION-WIDE TOUR TO DOWNTOWN LAS VEGAS EVENTS CENTER FRIDAY, AUGUST 3

 

Celebrating new albums and decades of music, tickets go on sale Friday, March 23

This summer, rock-lovers in Las Vegas can catch some of the genre’s biggest names when co-headliners, Godsmack and Shinedown, play the Downtown Las Vegas Events Center on Friday, August 3. The highly-anticipated tour stop will celebrate the spring album releases of both multi-platinum groups.

Local tickets will go on sale Friday, March 23 at 10 a.m. PST. Tickets can be purchased at www.dlvec.com and start at $49 plus applicable fees. Doors for the show open at 7 p.m. and performers take the stage at 8 p.m.

Since smashing their way on to the scene in 1998, Godsmack has been revered as 21st century hard rock titans. To date, they’ve notched a staggering six #1 singles on mainstream rock radio, including “Awake,” “Straight Out of Line,” and “I Stand Alone.” Among multiple Grammy nominations, the group has sold over 20 million records worldwide and unleashed three consecutive albums at #1 on the Billboard Top 200.

 

Leading the charge for new age rock, multi-platinum, record-breaking band Shinedown has sold more than 10 million albums worldwide, has 11 platinum and gold singles and four platinum and gold albums. Every one of the singles released over Shinedown’s nearly two-decade career has ascended to the Top 10 on the rock charts – a feat unmatched by any other rock band. Hailed as a fiery and always exciting live act, the band has racked up countless sold-out tours and festival headlining sets.

 

When Legends Rise, Godsmack’s first album in four years, is due out April 27 via BMG and marks their debut on the label. The new project comes 20 years after the release of their self-titled debut album. Playing alongside their longtime friends in music, multi-platinum rock band Shinedown recently announced the release of their sixth studio album Attention Attention, out May 4th on Atlantic Records. The record offers thought-provoking lyrics, explosive guitars, unpredictable rhythms and cinematic flourishes in the band’s biggest and boldest chapter yet.

 

Supporting Godsmack and Shinedown for an electric evening will be New Zealanders, Like A Storm. Led by brothers Chris, Matt, and Kent Brooks, with Zach Wood on drums, the group has become the most successful New Zealand rock band in U.S. radio history.

godsmack

About Godsmack
Godsmack stand strong as 21st century hard rock titans. With an unbreakable spirit and diehard work ethic evocative of their hometown, the Boston quartet consists of Sully Erna (vocals), Shannon Larkin (drums), Robbie Merril (bass), and Tony Rombola (lead guitar). To date, they’ve notched a staggering six #1 singles at mainstream rock radio, including “Awake,” “Straight Out of Line,” “Cryin’ Like A Bitch,” and “I Stand Alone.” Moreover, they’ve enjoyed 20 Top 10 hits at the format–the most of any act since February 1999–as well as four Grammy nominations, and were winners of Billboard Music Awards’ Rock Artist of the Year in 2001.  Selling over 20 million records worldwide, the band has also unleashed three consecutive albums at #1 on the Billboard Top 200—namely Faceless [2003], IV [2006], and The Oracle. Godsmack’s domination continues with the release of their new smash single “1000hp,” which debuted #1 on the iTunes Rock chart, and upcoming release of their sixth full length album 1000hp on August 5th.

About Skillet
Over the course of the past few years, GRAMMY® nominated and platinum selling rock band Skillet has sold more than two million units in the U.S., racked up more than 160 million YouTube views and amassed a diehard following (dubbed Panheads) whose members number over five million on Facebook alone. Their 2013 release RISE debuted at No. 4 on the Billboard 200 and No. 1 on the Billboard Rock and Christian charts, which led to No. 1 radio hits for “American Noise,” “Not Gonna Die” and “Sick Of It.” RISE also gave Skillet their late night television debut on Conan. RISE follows the band’s 2009 blockbuster, Awake, which was certified platinum for sales in excess of one million copies in the U.S. and debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard 200. In addition, the record hit No. 1 on the iTunes Top Albums Chart, garnered three Billboard Music Awards and spawned four hit singles including the No. 1 Active Rock smash and gold-certified “Awake & Alive,” the gold-certified “Hero,” “It’s Not Me It’s You” and the platinum-certified “Monster.” “Monster” lived up to its name, selling more than a million copies and hitting Top 5 at Active Rock radio (the first in a string of multiple Top 5 active rock hits), while its companion video has generated over 69 million YouTube views. Skillet was the only active rock band to achieve RIAA Platinum Certification in 2012, and was one of only three rock bands (the other two being Mumford & Sons and The Black Keys) to strike platinum in 2012. Skillet is made up of John Cooper, Korey Cooper, Jen Ledger and Seth Morrison.

About Pop Evil
Pop Evil represents the American Dream. Raised in the heartland, driven by uncompromising passion and goals, self-made from their bootstraps and energized by diverse cultural and ethnic backgrounds, Pop Evil–Leigh Kakaty (lead vocals), Nick Fuelling (lead guitar), Dave Grahs (rhythm guitar), Matt DiRito (bass) and Chachi Riot (drums)–has used muscle and sweat to put their musical vision into the hearts and minds of hard rock lovers worldwide. After three number one songs at rock radio, a half million digital singles sold and over 1,000 shows a few short years into their impressive career, Pop Evil is a swaggering, fist-pumping, ball-busting ride through American rock. The grandiose melody of the ‘70s, the danger of the ‘80s, the emotion of the ‘90s and the loudest of modern riffs all have a home in Pop Evil, who fashion a fresh sound that looks to the future through the prism of rock’s past. Pop Evil songs are heard on ESPN, ABC, FOX and other networks. Sports teams like the Anaheim Ducks, New Jersey Devils, Boston Bruins, and their very own Detroit Red Wings, Tigers and Michigan Wolverines bang their anthems over the loudspeakers. Pop Evil doesn’t take anything for granted. They know their listeners are open-minded but that they also have a lot of choices. They want to be challenged. They want to be inspired. That’s why the band works hard to create music that stands out.

Photos & Review: 48 Hours Festival Powered by Rockstar Energy Drink Comes to a End

Vegas24Seven had the honor, pleasure and privilege of attending and covering the 48 Hours Festival powered by Rockstar Energy Drinks and presented by Revolver. The event was on the fabulous Las Vegas Strip just south of the Luxor and Mandalay Bay. 2 days, 22 bands and thousands and thousands of concert go-ers later we emerged drained, enlightened and entertained. I went wanting to see my personal favorites Hatebreed and Five Finger Death Punch but left the festival with a new-found respect for several local bands and several well known bands that I hadn’t seen before. The festivities began Friday night at a kick-off party at the House of Blues and Saturday morning there was a Topless Pool Party at the Mandalay Bay Moorea beach Club. We arrived at the main event early Saturday and picked up our press and photo passes and went to work. I walked the grounds and found The Rockstar tent, the Best Buy autograph centers, the Gibson/Revolver tent, the Metal Mulisha motocross Jump Show, the wrestling ring, the Rat Pack Vegas Lounge, the Old Mexico saloon, the Debauchery VIP tent, The VIP bungalows complete with pools, the Ricky Bobby lounge, the sponsor village area, the Ernie Ball second stage and the enormously impressive Rockstar main stage. Then we checked out the backstage compound, Godfather VIP area, media tent and the Red Carpet area. Now lets get to it!

Day 1 kicked off with Orange Blossom Special playing the Ernie ball second stage stage at 2pm. This California band played a quick and energetic set and got the whole festival going. Later I had the chance to talk to them on the red carpet and they said they felt a little pressure kicking off the biggest rock and roll party ever to hit the Las Vegas strip. But they pulled it off and had fun doing it.

 

Next was the Butcher Babies. They were a late addition and most of the guys at the festival were glad of that. They are from LA and are the undisputed darlings of the Sunset Strip. I’m not gonna argue with ’em. Scantily clad and brutal front women Heidi and Carla really whipped they crowd into a frenzy. They were a heavier metal sound and that’s just what this metalhead likes.

 

 

Leading off on the Rockstar Energy Drink main stage at 3pm was Las Vegas own Otherwise. The crowd had been gathering there waiting and were it wasn’t long until the full festival feel was present at the overwhelming stage constructed just the day before.

Brothers Adrian and Ryan Patrick put together a great set and it’s no wonder they are billed as #1 unsigned act in America by Fox news.

The next couple of hours I was bouncing back and forth from the main stage to the second stage to the red carpet and it got a little hectic. But hey I like hectic. Next on second stage was up and coming California band Hell or Highwater. Playing songs from there debut album Begin Again it was a great sound and set. By now the crowds were getting bigger and bigger and louder and louder. Art of Dyings guitarist Tavis later told me this was one of the bands he wanted to check out at the festival.

 

Back to the main stage at 4PM for our very own Adelitas Way. This band is really making some noise on the music scene and it’s no wonder. They kick ass!. Frontman Rick DeJesus pounds it out while guitarists Rahji and Keith sizzle. Derek’s on the Bass and manager Trevor pounding out the drums. Fresh off the Carnival of Madness Tour they played songs from recent CD Home School Valedictorian and self titled debut CD Adelitas Way. We had conflicting schedules all day and I didn’t get the interview I wanted but I did talk to Rick some and we’re going to get together later here in Vegas. Maybe at a show or maybe at Kevin Churkos Rock and Roll Hideout studio opening. Look for that interview and story in the future on Vegas24Seven.com.

 

4:30pm and Black Tide is tearing it up and the Ernie Ball stage. An intricate and powerful set of songs from recent Cd Post Mortem and previous releases. I was kind of rushed away from this one, to the red carpet and then to the main stage. But I enjoyed what I did hear and the crowd did too.

 

Now we’re starting to get to the more well known bands with Las Vegas Escape the Fate hittin’ the big stage. This band made a very quick rise to the top and has played the Sunset Strip Music Festival with Mötley Crüe and Rockstar Energy Drink Uproar Festival. And to think I saw them a couple of years ago at Extreme Thing here in Vegas. Of course this band has a HUGE local following and their crowd was ready and waiting to really get into it and lose themselves. It was a great performance and I know everyone enjoyed it.

 

 

Now I don’t have a clue why mega star metal band Hatebreed was stuck on the Ernie Ball stage but I was kind of glad they were. It’s not often you can get that close to performers the way I was. Lead singer Jamey Jasta was right beside me in the photo pit until I retired to the crowd with my pit buddy Justin. I knew most of the vocals and about screamed my brains out when played In Ashes They Shall Reap (Born to bleed, fighting to succeed Built to endure what this world throws at me) and when they finished with Destroy Everything. It was a rowdy set with probably the best moshpit of the festival. I also ranked it as the best performances of the festival. Maybe a little biased but definitely the best METAL performance of the 48 hours, This was the last artist on the second stage for the night and a fitting way to close it.

 

Back to the main stage for one of the crowd favorites Hollywood Undead. Even though their rap-rock style is not one of my favorites I do appreciate the way they get through to their crowd. I saw them last year at Extreme Thing and again they worked the crowd into a frenzy of hardcore dancing. They’ve also had a lot of recent success with their new CD American Tragedy.

 

I’ve seen Five Finger Death Punch numerous times and can’t get enough of them. They are one of my favorite bands and Ivan Moody is a character. He’s the first artist I admired for switching back and forth between clean and hard vocals. Zoltan is a great guitarist and they compliment each other well. The main stage show area was packed by now and it was electric when they hit the stage. They opened with Under and Over It from their new CD American Capitalist, They played Way of the Fist, Bad Company, No One Gets Left Behind, a Never Enough medley, White Knuckles, Bulletproof and finished with Burn It Down. I though Ivan was going to burn the place down because show administrators had to ask him to stop playing. He probably would have played all night if they would have let him, FFDP is not used to being on the undercard (and maybe shouldn’t have been). I just couldn’t seem to get close enough to the pit area during this show to get into it. The pit wasn’t quite what I am used to but it was fun and the rest of the crowd seemed to enjoy it as well.

 

 

Day 1 of the 48 Hours Festival ended with Avenged Sevenfold. They’ve got it goin’ on in 2010 they tore up the charts with CD Nightmare and really got the crowd going this night. Immediately it sounded like an arena show and probably got more response from the crowd that any other performer of the festival. They opened with Nightmare and Beast and the Harlot and by now you couldn’t move, everyone was a little lit up, hot and worked up. The concert staff did a great job of making sure everyone was OK. Almost Easy and Bat Country were really good and they finished with Unholy Confessions. This was a fitting way to end the largest rock and roll party ever to hit the strip. But was it really over…. Nope. Now on to the afterparty at the House of Blues Mandalay Bay All-Star Jam hosted by Jamey Jasta and then the limos began rolling to the O.G. Gentlemen’s Club. So even though the performances were over for the evening the party continued Vegas style right into the next day.

 

 

Day 2 continued for some people at the Mandalay Bay Beach hangover brunch with a bevy of Bloody Mary’s, some great food and Korns Jonathan Davis DJ’ing. I arrive early but not quite as early as Saturday and went straight at it. It seemed a little more organized on Sunday with more regular and scheduled arrivals on the red carpet. I was bouncing back and forth again from the red carpet to the second stage to the main stage.

California band Valora went off right on time at 2pm and started day 2 off great. Front-woman Syd Duran was a hit on the red carpet and a crowd favorite onstage as well. It was a short set but big on appeal. Look for Valora to rise quickly as their first single is due out any day now

 

 

Next on the Ernie Ball stage was Arizona band Eyes Set To Kill. Back to back lady lead singers had the male audience mesmerized and they put on a good show. By now the crowd at the event was getting bigger, the weather was heating up and so was the concert

 

Kickin’ off our day two main stage experience was Tennessee band 10 years. They are a well respected veteran band and put on a great show. With their recent more aggressive, harder, darker style they fit right in with the kind of music I like. The crowd liked them a lot as well.

 

Vegas band Taking Dawn was next and again we got the heavier music that I favor so much. A no nonsense in your face here’s our music approach is refreshing with all the “fake” bands out there. Not only did they kill this stage the next night they killed local hotspot Count Vamp’d with Adelitas Way as well.

 

Australian band Sick Puppies hit the main stage next and the place was really hoppin now. This one of the bands I have a newfound respect for. How could a band this good be “off my radar”? Well they’re not anymore and there were a LOT of fans there for this band. I found that ever since this band moved to LA they have been in the right place at the right time and are doing great.

 

I met Canadian band Art Of Dying on the red carpet, interviewed them a little bit and immediately hit it off with these guys. We joked around about them playing hockey against other bands (they’re undefeated), visiting Vegas and other bands they wanted to check out at the festival. I took a couple pictures that are a big hit on twit-pic with the chicks. They had just wrapped up the Uproar Festival also and were ready to tear up Vegas. Frontman Jonny ruled the stage, Greg and Tavis ripped the guitars and bass-man Cale and drummer Jeff completed this polished act that is just tearing up the music scene right now. They have a fairly new CD out now called Vices and Virtues and look for them to rise to the top.

 

Next on the mainstage was Seether and again this is another well known huge band that I had not paid enough attention to. Until you see this band you don’t really appreciate the fact that this is just 3 dudes making all this awesomeness. They have a CD just released this spring Holding onto Strings Better Left to Fray and played this and songs from their 3 previous releases. Great Band, new respect, many happy fans.

 

4 big acts coming up in a row now and again I don’t know why the monsters Sevendust were on the smaller stage. But just like Hatebreed I was glad to get up close to this Atlanta band. Got some great pictures of Lajon up close and this was in my top three bands of the festival as well. The second stage area was completely packed for them and the few lightweights that were in the crowd were sent packing when the place erupted into a frenzy. Great presence and show put on by these guys.

 

No more running back and forth from stage to stage now and only one more red carpet to get to so I was able to really enjoy Canadians Three Days Grace. Big time band with big time performance getting the crowd into that “arena sound” and everyone was right on with them. They opened with The Good Life, played Break, Pain, I Hate Everything About You, Home/Lose Yourself, Never Too Late, Riot and ended with and extended Animal I Have Become. This set up the big two getting ready to assault Las Vegas.

 

Boston’s Godsmack took the stage at 7:40pm and look out. After shooting the opening pictures I had to go the the red carpet for a while and Voodoo came on the sound from the crowd was awesome. I had the old Goose bumps pop up on my bod when this happened. It was a strong, energetic performance that left most people drained. Most mortals would have packed it in. But not the 48 Hours Festival fans.

 

KOOOOOORN. Finally what this whole weekend had been building up to Korn!   Hailing from Bakersfield California this band put a whooping on Las Vegas. Started out with Blind, followed up by Here to Stay, Freak on a Leash and Shoots and Ladders what a way to start a set. And the crowd went nuts. They did 6 other songs and then a 7 seven song medley and finally ended with Y’All Want a Single. When Korn said thank you and good-night we were all so alive but completely drained and just like the concert – finished.

 

So the first of hopefully many 48 Hours Festivals came to a close. It was at times perfect, mostly chaotic, often risqué and lewd but enormously entertaining. Can’t wait until next year.
