Chicago and The Doobie Brothers Roll Across the U.S. with an Amphitheater and Arena Summer Tour

Sorry folks, this was one that kind of slipped by me, just realised that I didn't plug this before, so sharing it now.

LOS ANGELES, Feb. 27th, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Rock legends Chicago and The Doobie Brothers will share the stage this summer for an evening of classic rock hits spanning both artists' extensive repertoire of chart topping and award winning hits. Doubling the value for fans this summer, both bands will co-headline the 21 date U.S.tour kicking off on July 11th in Tuscon, AZ at the Anselmo Valencia Amphitheatre with confirmed dates through August 24th at the Toyota Pavilion in Scranton, Pennsylvania. Each band will perform individual sets, playing their biggest hits, and then both Chicago and The Doobie Brothers will join together for a thrilling grand finale encore, playing each other's songs at the end of each of these summer shows. Tickets for the Live Nation promoted tour go on sale in select markets beginning March 2nd at and

Chicago, the legendary band with horns, and the highest charting American band in Billboard Magazine's list of Top 100 artists of all time, will once again allow a winning bidder to have a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to sing the band's classic hit song, "If You Leave Me Now" onstage with Chicago at every concert. This is the third consecutive year that Chicago has teamed up with the American Cancer Society to create "Sing With Chicago," a highly successful promotion that has raised over $130,000 to fight breast cancer. Fans in every market will be able to bid on a package that includes a meet and greet with the band, two premium tickets and a chance to sing onstage in concert with the band. Previous year's winners were so moved by the experience that they launched the Facebook group, "I Sang With Chicago," where they shared stories about their experiences and videos of themselves onstage singing with the band. Each winner has an incredible story to tell. As was done last year, the money raised this year is in honor of Chicago's friend Paqui Kelly, the wife of Notre Dame's head football coach Brian Kelly, who is a breast cancer survivor. Chicago has generously supported other charitable causes in the past, including the Ara Parseghian Medical Research Foundation and Hannah & Friends, started by Maura Weis and her husband, Charlie Weis, the current coach at the University of Kansas.

Northern California's Doobie Brothers are celebrating the 40th anniversary of their propulsive roots-based, harmony laden, guitar driven style that sold an estimated 40 million records over the course of four decades. In 2010, original members Pat Simmons and Tom Johnston, and 30-year member John McFee marked a new chapter with the delivery of a potent album – World Gone Crazy (HOR Records), featuring a guest appearance by the legendary Willie Nelson.
It's their first new album in a decade, and it produced the Top 20 track "Far From Home" and the Top 5 GAC Video "World Gone Crazy." Their current single, "A Brighter Day," is #22 on the AC charts, and continues to climb the charts.
The band recently returned from an extremely successful tour in New Zealand. Forty thousand tickets were sold (3 shows)—almost 1% of the entire population of New Zealand. Over the past year, The Doobie Brothers made several stops into Nashville to appear on the Grand Ole Opry and to film a Crossroads special with Luke Bryan. Bryan and the Doobies performance of "China Grove" was in heavy rotation on the CMT channel.

First Live Concert DVD and CD from The Dude Films, due March 26


NEW YORK – Fans of power rockers ALTER BRIDGE rushed to “beat the street” online this week and make LIVE AT WEMBLEY, the band’s second live CD/DVD – and the first live concert DVD from The Dude Films – hit #2 in the Top 100 on the Blu Ray Music Videos and Concerts chart at, just beneath Adele.

For the seventh day in a row, LIVE AT WEMBLEY, with a street date of March 26, 2012, has been in the Top 10 of Amazon Bestsellers in the Blu Ray Music Videos and Concerts chart, ahead of video offerings from other music giants in the Top 10 such as Iron Maiden, Whitney Houston and Tony Bennett. The title has consistently picked up sales and momentum since it was initially posted on Amazon over a week ago, showing the incredibly true loyalty and love of Alter Bridge fans.

The band’s previous live CD/DVD, LIVE FROM AMSTERDAM (2009), broke records at Amazon, rising 15,000 spots in one day to capture the #1 position.
The package was very well received and garnered 4- and 5-star reviews across the board.
LIVE AT WEMBLEY, distributed in North America through EMI Label Services, includes every key Alter Bridge track from their three studio albums, including “Isolation,” “Ghosts Of Days Gone By,” “Wonderful Life,” “Watch Over You,” “Broken Wings,” “Rise Today,” “Open Your Eyes” and many more, and was captured in late November during the Fall 2011 European tour at the historic Wembley Arena.

“When the tour was booked, we saw that there were a few arenas, Wembley being one of them,” says lead guitar player Mark Tremonti. “We were excited and nervous, wondering if the tickets would sell. They did, and we were blown away. The first four or five songs of any set are usually pretty nerve-wracking. Those are the tunes where we're finding our footing and trying to get comfortable. But Wembley was different. Even with all of the cameras and the fact that we were filming and we couldn't make any mistakes, it was fun right from the start.”

Directed by long time Alter Bridge Director Daniel E. Catullo III (Rush, Nickelback, Smashing Pumpkins, Godsmack) and produced by Catullo and Lionel Pasamonte, the 16-camera, state-of-the-art high definition shoot was filmed in front of a fanatical audience of over 10,000 English fans as the band gave the performance of a lifetime, captured in pristine audio visual perfection, in 5.1 DTS Surround Sound, at Wembley Arena in London. The Deluxe Edition of the DVD is set to include a second bonus disc of content shot specifically for this release, plus a 60-minute documentary called “The Road To Wembley” and photo gallery, and 16-page souvenir booklet.

In addition to the main HD shoot, the show was shot in 3D using 3Ality Technica technology and cameras. The 3D version will be released in late 2012 as a separate 3D film/3D Blu Ray package by 3Dimensions, Inc. The 3D production was produced by Catullo and Pasamonte, along with Ted Kenney, Producer/ Director of such iconic 3D Concert Films as U23D, Kenney Chesney: Summer in 3D, Black Eyed Peas in 3D and Britney Spears in 3D.

The DVD and Blu Ray includes the following songs:

1. Slip To The Void
2. Find The Real
3. Ghosts Of Days Gone By
4. Before Tomorrow Comes
5. Come To Life
6. All Hope Is Gone

About Alter Bridge

Formed in 2004, ALTER BRIDGE is comprised of CREED members Mark Tremonti, Brian Marshall and Scott Phillips along with powerhouse singer and former MAYFIELD FOUR front-man Myles Kennedy. ALTER BRIDGE has sold over 1,000,000 albums in North America alone, and has had 7 Top Ten hits. Its debut album, One Day Remains, was certified RIAA Gold. The band’s incendiary follow up, Blackbird, featured the hit single “Rise Today” and their most recent album ABIII, has spawned 2 Top 10 hits, “Isolation” and “Ghosts Of Days Gone By.” Isolation, the first single on ABIII, reached #1 on Billboard’s Active Rock chart.



Iconic singer MEAT LOAF will return to the television airwaves March 14 with a live performance of his new song “The Giving Tree” on NBC’s “Tonight Show With Jay Leno.” The performance coincides with the March 13 release of the new HELL IN A HANDBASKET CD (Sony/Legacy). MEAT LOAF will also sit down that week for an interview on PBS’ “Tavis Smiley Show” (airdate TBA).

Check out “The Giving Tree” (click here to listen), a song about his life as a performer, giving his all in a Faustian bargain. “It’s not all about the money, like the public thinks,” MEAT LOAF says. “I’ve never done a single thing for money.”

MEAT LOAF – whose 1977 breakout album Bat Out Of Hell defined the arena rock genre and remains as one of the world’s five top-selling albums of all-time, with more than 43 million copies sold to date–is excited about HELL IN A HANDBASKET. It’s his most autobiographical album to date, a thematic record that easily crosses any number of genres, featuring such unlikely contributors as rappers Chuck D and Lil Jon, country star Trace Adkins, and Sugar Ray’s Mark McGrath. It’s an album about feeling alone and disconnected from the world around you, at the same time as it tries to tap into what unifies us as fellow humans on this topsy-turvy planet in 2012.

Hell In A Handbasket is the most personal record I’ve ever made,” said MEAT LOAF.  "It’s really the first record I’ve ever put out about how I feel about life and how I feel about what’s going on at the moment.” The album, produced by Paul Crook, is an expression of life’s metaphors, driven by excellent musicianship, and of course, the passionate vocals of Meat Loaf. “Making this album was a great experience,” said MEAT LOAF, “and I hope my fans enjoy hearing it as much as I did making it.”

Musically, HELL IN A HANDBASKET ranges from the southern country blues feel of “Live or Die” (co-written by Grammy-winning band The Civil Wars’ John Paul White), the DEVO-esque New Wave feel and Beatle-esque interlude in “Party of One,” the gospel/R&B of “Our Love and Our Souls” (duet with Patti Russo), to “Stand in the Storm,” which segues from country to rock to rap all in one song, featuring Lil Jon and Mark McGrath, along with Trace Adkins. Other tracks include “All of Me,” a cover of Tom Cochrane’s 1991 “Mad, Mad World,” (which is part of a trilogy including the dreamy “Blue Sky” before it, and Chuck D’s virulent rap, with “The Good God is a Woman and She Don’t Like Ugly” as a coda), the Mamas and the Papas’ “California Dreamin’” (duet with Patti Russo), “Another Day,” “40 Days,” and “Fall From Grace.”


(Phoenix, AZ - March. 2012) Phoenix, AZ glam kings the Crash Street Kids have their new video, "Sad Julia" available for viewing. The video features popular Phoenix based model Mysti Moon in the role of Julia, a reclusive beauty who happens to be the target of CSK singer, Ryan McKay's infatuation.

The video directed by Nick Orciuolo, captures CSK in a gritty alleyway, while Julia sits comfortably in her quiet suburban home. After some effort and a bit of convincing, she's lured from the safety of her cozy lair into an adventure with the glam rockers.

"Sad Julia" can be viewed here:

"Sad Julia" is the new single from the Crash Street Kids newest album, Sweet Creatures. The band's fifth album overall (including four studio and one double live album) and debut for Vanity Music Group, the album will also feature two more videos, "Bang! Bang! (You're Beautiful)" and "Mary, Queen Of The Rock."

Sweet Creatures is in stores now.

 March, 2012 -- To give the already-growing mass of fans what they want now, SINS, the second album from CHARM CITY DEVILS, will be released exclusively via iTunes on April 1 via Fat Lady Music.
The first single from SINS, a cover of “Man Of Constant Sorrow” (from the Grammy® - winning soundtrack of the George Clooney Oscar® - nominated film “O Brother, Where Art Thou?”), is quickly making a name for itself on the Rock radio airwaves. Fans have been burning up the request lines on such radio outlets as SiriusXM’s “Octane” channel, 98 Rock (Baltimore), KILO (Colorado Springs), WZBH (Ocean City), KHTQ (Spokane), KQXR (Boise), WJXQ (Lansing) and KTUX (Shreveport). “Man Of Constant Sorry” recently debuted on Billboard’s “Active Rock” chart at #36.

A lyric video for the song was recently released and can be seen here:

When the band (singer John Allen, guitarist Vic Karrera, bassist Anthony Arambula, guitarist Nick Kay and drummer Jason Heiser) started to put the new album together, they discussed covering a classic song and incorporating it into their live show. As singer John Allen, “There were many ideas kicked around, but which one? ‘Man Of Constant Sorrow’ came up and we decided to give it a try. It’s an incredibly powerful song, but it was a challenge to develop and arrange it in a way that captured the essence of the song but would also ROCK! We all loved the version from ‘O Brother, Where Art Thou?’ Skidd Mills and I built a foundation and with much tweaking and editing, and I think we delivered a great version of the song. The song transcends generations. It’s a timeless classic and it’s been around a long time. I’m excited to bring it to a whole new group of rock fans.”

SINS finds the Baltimore band adding harder, edgier tones to their blues-based roots. The result of the band's life experiences over the past few years, SINS features an aggression and energy that hits you right between the eyes. From the first note of "Spite" to the last cymbal crash of “Unstoppable,” SINS showcases the bands power, directness and new found energy and intensity.
Recorded at Sound Kitchen Studios in Nashville with Grammy-winning producer Skidd Mills (Saving Abel, Egypt Central), guitarist Nick Kay reflects on the process, “Our previous record had been a compilation of songs written and recorded over a two to three year period. It was recorded in a couple of different settings and tracked by a few different people. This time, we went into one studio with one producer to give the record a cohesive sound and direction.”
 “Everyone has ups and downs – that’s life,” proclaims singer John Allen. “I’ve been a professional musician since I could carry my gear and have seen and experienced what this industry ‘good and bad’ has to offer. We wanted SINS to be deep with songs that people can relate to. On this record, I wanted to put it all out there with songs about love, anger, revenge, lust and all the emotions that I was feeling. Expressing what I, and everyone in this band, had been through. These feelings are universal. They touch everyone and we used our experiences to put together a powerful statement that we believe listeners can connect with.”
 And what about the album title? “When it came to giving the record a title we wanted something that hit a nerve,” he continues. “We have five different personalities in this band and it can sometimes be a challenge to agree on one idea. The one thing we all could agree on is in one form or another we have all sinned. Some of us more than others.”
In touring news, check out CHARM CITY DEVILS at any of the following stops, with more dates to be announced in the coming weeks:
