Rock super group Sixx:A.M. will embark on its first-ever headline tour, “The Modern Vintage Tour,” in 2015 with a stop at The Joint inside Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Las Vegas on Friday, April 10, 2015. The band will play a limited number of dates across North America with special guest Apocalyptica.
James Michael (singer), DJ Ashba (guitarist) and Nikki Sixx (bassist), collectively known as Sixx:A.M., released their third album Modern Vintage yesterday (Tuesday, Oct. 7), which debuted at No. 1 on the iTunes Rock Album chart. The band celebrated the release by playing their first live show since 2009 at iHeartRadio Theater in Los Angeles.
“Fans have been asking for years ‘When is Sixx:A.M. gonna tour?’ and we’ve finally announced our first headline tour. We can’t wait to play these songs live and put on a rock extravaganza for our fans,” exclaims Sixx. “We’re excited to announce that we’re bringing along Apocalyptica as special guest because we are fans of their music and think this is going to be an amazing night of music from beginning to end.”
Says Michael: “For three records now we have been envisioning what a Sixx:A.M. headline tour would look and feel like. We are so excited to finally be bringing these songs to life”.
Adds Ashba: “Over the years we feel we have taken our fans on some pretty incredible and diverse musical journeys. However, they have only been able to experience half of our vision. For the first time we are going to present a visual journey to go along with the music. This tour will be something you won’t want to miss. This will be the ultimate Sixx:A.M. Experience”.
The first single off Sixx:A.M.’s new album Modern Vintage, “Gotta Get It Right” is currently climbing the rock radio charts. The band’s previous two albums, The Heroin Diaries and This Is Gonna Hurt – both of which were accompanied by books of the same name – have sold over 600,000 copies and spawned two No. 1 radio singles, “Life Is Beautiful” and “This Is Gonna Hurt.”
