Rock News for Friday 9th July, 2010
KISSTERIA WORLD PREMIERE JULY 20 ON A&E
"KISSTERIA", a one-hour KISS tour special, will air on the A&E network Tuesday, July 20 at 10pm ET.
KISS makes a last minute decision to tour Australia in celebration of the 35th Anniversary of their landmark "Alive" album.
Unfortunately, planning such a huge undertaking so quickly has its consequences, both onstage and off.
Our cameras are given unprecedented access into the world of KISS and what life is like for the legendary band on the road.
Now come on Kiss, Def Leppard already had Hysteria, isn't this going a little close to the mark guys?
Y &T Newsletter update from the band
Thanks to all the European fans who came out in full force to support Y&T at this year's summer festivals.
The band returned with a small handful of "Facemelter" European digipaks. We have them up for sale in our web site store for those interested who live outside of Europe. This is the European version with the bonus track "Losing My Mind." We truly only have a few, though, so orders are limited to one digipak per order.
Here we go! The band is now off to perform their largest US tour since the '80s. If you're anywhere near where the guys are playing, please come out and support the band and have a great rocking experience! After this summer tour the boys return to Europe and the UK for 7 weeks of headline shows, back home, then on to Japan to finish up the Facemelter world tour.
I'M COMING HOME - NEW VIDEO
If you haven't seen the new Y&T video "I'm Coming Home" off the "Facemelter" album, check it out on our multimedia page. It's been spotted on television, including HDNet in the States.
Our apologies, but the Underground show in Cologne, Germany is rescheduled to November 3. The guys look forward to a kick-ass show for their great German fans.
The Corpus Christi show is moving to Austin, and the El Paso show is changing venues. Check the web site soon for details.
MELTING FACES AROUND THE GLOBE
The boys have done loads of interviews in response to their new album "Facemelter" and the reviews around the world have been fantastic. Check the web site forum, as some reviews have been posted there. "Facemelter" is on Frontiers Records, on Meanstreak Music Co in the US, and on King Records in Japan. The US version is available from our web store.
Y&T's new Facemelter shirt is so hot that it keeps selling out! Apologies to those of you who tried to order one last month from our web site store. Rest assured, we do have stock so be sure to order yours.
The new T-shirts feature the Facemelter cover art (created by John Taylor Dismukes) on the front and tour dates on the back.
New shirts for the ladies have the gold Y&T logo and the Facemelter title on the front. Visit our web store to see all the new items and hear a preview of the album.
