MÖTLEY CRÜE Singer Rushed To Hospital For ‘Internal Pain’

MÖTLEY CRÜE was forced to play an abbreviated set earlier today (Sunday, March 10) at Allphones Arena in Sydney, Australia during the band’s tour with KISS and THIN LIZZY. CRÜE bassist Nikki Sixx writes on Twitter: “Sorry, Sydney, for a short set tonight but Vince [Neil, MÖTLEY CRÜE singer] had to be rushed to the hospital for internal pain. Will update you on his progress.”

Neil played a show with CRÜE in Toronto last September after sustaining two fractures in his foot during the previous night’s concert in Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio.

MÖTLEY CRÜE last year released a brand new song called “Sex” to coincide with the launch of the band’s North American co-headlining tour with KISS.

Written when the group was together during their residency in Las Vegas in February 2012, “Sex” was the first studio track from the CRÜE since their June 2008 release of “Saints Of Los Angeles”.

GWAR TO HOLD “MEAT AND MEET” BASH TO KICK OFF SPRING TOUR

   

GWAR TO HOLD “MEAT AND MEET” BASH TO KICK OFF SPRING TOUR  

Antarctic metal monsters GWAR are kicking off their spring run of dates with a special “Meat and Meet” at the world-famous Grinders in Kansas City, Mo. The “Meat and Meet” is scheduled for Monday April 8th from 4-6 PM.

 

This event is not only for GWAR to drink and eat themselves into a bloated coma with their legions of slavering fans, but to announce and introduce their brand-new and 100% edible “GWAR-B-Q” sauce, personally created for human consumption by none other than GWAR‘s steel-faced guitar player, Balsac, the Jaws of Death.

 

GWAR-B-Q Sauce– it actually tastes good!”

“This new taste sensation is mostly made out of the blood of really hot chicks”, explained the surprisingly cordial space-barbarian. “It was a terrible waste of fine ass, but ultimately worth it because this sauce is absolutely delicious!”

 

GWAR will be kicking off the second leg of the “Fate or Chaos” tour is scheduled to kick off April 10th in Tucson, AZ and will run through April 25th in Jacksonville, Florida. Support on the tour will come from Warbeast and Wilson. All dates can be found below.

 

The summer will also herald the fourth annual GWAR-B-Q, and this year is shaping-up to have the most colossal, bone-crushing line-up yet! But that’s not all from your toxic mutant under-lords. Rumors of boxed sets, GWAR-B-Q sauce,GWAR beer, and long-awaited “comedy” albums abound. Further details about all of these projects would have to wait until “we get our shit together”, said Oderus.

On March 4, KISS guitarist/vocalist Paul Stanley was interviewed on “The Project” (previously “The 7PM Project”), the Australian talk show television program airing weeknights across Australia on Network Ten. You can now watch video footage of his appearance below.

KISS is currently taking part in an Australian tour with very special guests MÖTLEY CRÜE.

Presented by McManus Entertainment, the summer’s biggest, baddest rock tour is hitting Sydney, Brisbane, Melbourne, Perth, Mackay and Adelaide, with guests Irish rockers THIN LIZZY along for the ride (except Adelaide).

“Monster”, the 20th studio album from KISS, sold 56,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to land at position No. 3 on The Billboard 200 chart.

KISS‘ previous CD, “Sonic Boom”, opened with 108,000 units back in October 2009 to enter the chart at No. 2. This marked the band’s highest-charting LP ever.

KISS has notched nine Top 10 albums, according to Billboard.com. Its previous highest-charting set was 1998’s “Psycho Circus”, which debuted and peaked at No. 3 with 110,000 copies in its first week, according to Nielsen SoundScan. The group’s other high-charting sets include 1975’s “Alive!” (No. 9), 1977’s “Love Gun” (No. 4) and 1992’s “Revenge” (No. 6).

Video: LORDI Performs ‘The Riff’ On German TV

Last Saturday, only one day after the release of their new album, “To Beast Or Not To Beast”, Finnish monster rockers LORDI not only presented their new single, “The Riff”, on German TV; “Team Lordi” also competed in Pro 7‘s “wok racing championships!”

And as cool as the team retained its composure in the ice trail, their performance of “The Riff” was melting snow and ice with lots of flames and pyros.

You can watch video footage of LORDI‘s “The Riff” performance at this location.

“To Beast Or Not To Beast” was released on March 1 in Europe (excluding Finland) via AFM Records. The CD will be made available in North America on March 19 through The End Records.

“To Beast Or Not To Beast” was recorded last fall at WireWorld Studio in Nashville, Tennessee with renowned producer Michael Wagener (METALLICA, OZZY OSBOURNE, SKID ROW, DOKKEN, RAVEN, MEGADETH). The CD marks the recording debut of LORDI‘s new members, keyboardist Hella (replacing Awa) and drummer Mana (replacing Otus).

“The road to this album has truly been paved by hardships,” LORDI leader Mr. Lordi says. “However, the new lineup of the band has given us new and fresh touch and an energetic edge to the recording process, and to the album itself.”

He added: “The album cover painting is actually a part of a larger picture. The original artwork had this vintage-styled lady holding a horned skull, which, however, was not the main point of the art piece. There was something not quite right with the setting, so I made experiments with various versions and framings. Album title was ‘Upgradead’ at that point in time, and the painting was done with that title in mind. But now, with a changed concept of the artwork, the title did not seem to fit anymore. We did not consider it an A-class name either. Our guitarist Amen came up with the final title, which we felt suitable and perfect both for the cover artwork and the album.”

“To Beast Or Not To Beast” track listing:

01. We’re Not Bad For The Kids (We’re Worse)
02. I Luv Ugly
03. The Riff

LORDI previously worked with Wagener on 2010’s “Babez For Breakfast”, which sold around 1,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release. The CD landed at position No. 43 on the Top New Artist Albums (Heatseekers) chart, which lists the best-selling albums by new and developing artists, defined as those who have never appeared in the Top 100 of The Billboard 200.
