Dee Snider has been tapped to perform in Las Vegas for the inaugural Monster Circus , a new show that combines rock music, audience interaction and “a freaky circus atmosphere,” according to a press release. The Twisted Sister frontman will appear as a special guest March 19-21 and March 26-28.
Snider will be backed by the Monster Circus band, which features Rudy Sarzo (Dio, Whitesnake, Quiet Riot, Ozzy Osbourne), John Corabi (Motley Crue, Ratt), Fred Coury (Cinderella), Bruce Kulick (KISS) and Tony Montana (Great White).
The 75-minute show, which plays inside the Las Vegas Hilton Theater, will continue to feature special guests mixed in with dancers, human circus acts, aerialists, freaks and “a tour bus full of platinum certified rock stars,” according to event producers.
Tickets for Monster Circus can be purchased at the Las Vegas Hilton box office, by phone or online at the Las Vegas Hilton website and via Ticketmaster. (Ticketmaster is LiveDaily’s parent company.) Also available is a “rock star” VIP package that includes a meet-and-party pass, seating on the stage, photos and an opportunity to hang with the band after the show, according to organizers. Guests 12-17 years of age must be accompanied by an adult.
Head over to www.CrackTheSkye.com and get ready to have your mind blown! The new MASTODON micro site has just launched and features animation inspired by their upcoming album Crack the Skye. Like their previous releases, the new artwork was created by Paul Romano (Trivium, Godflesh). The site also features the world premiere of the sweeping instrumental, “Oblivion” plus a 60 second snippet of the track “Divinations.”
The new album was produced by Brendan O’Brien (Bruce Springsteen, Stone Temple Pilots, Neil Young) at Southern Tracks Studios in Atlanta, GA. Drummer/lyricist Brann Dailor described the album as more “focused” and told TheQuietus.com, “Maybe there was a deeper heart to this record that needed more exploring. We got more involved with feeling the vibe of the record and everything feels creepier and spaced out…something special is going on.”
Crack the Skye hits stores on March 24th!

PLEASE NOTE – All Fan Club presales begin Wednesday, February 25th at 10:00 AM (local time)
AC/DC, and Jackyl are just two of many bands I would consider amongst my favorites. Hollywood, California’s SNEW somehow manages to tap into the sounds of these bands, to deliver one hellaciously good hard rock disc, “SNEW YOU”.
If you are still sitting in your chair by the time the opening cut, “Stand Up High” is done, either your headphones are broke, or the battery died in your Miracle ear. “SNEW YOU” starts off with this awesome stadium anthem that will make you throw your fist in the air, and scream “HELL YEAH” at the top of your lungs. The rock doesn’t stop there either.
“SNEW YOU” relentlessly pounds your senses with nine more hard rock tunes after this killer opening cut. You won’t find any wimpy power ballads on this CD. This disc rocks hard from beginning to end. I couldn’t find a bad song in the bunch.
If you are looking for highly original sounding tunes, you probably won’t find them on “SNEW YOU”. I thought a couple of songs sounded quite similar to some AC/DC tunes, but I wasn’t bothered by that aspect of SNEW’s music one bit. I have been enjoying every song on this disc, and hit repeat once it is done. My only disappointment with this CD, is that I didn’t hear this disc sooner.
Don’t think for a second that the sound quality is going to be off, because this disc isn’t on a major label, that simply isn’t the case here. This disc has good songs, with a production effort that rivals those of the big labels.
If you want to hear hard rock the way it should be played, do not pass go, do not collect $200 dollars, go to this link and buy “Snew You” today. Highly Recommended!
Andy Lux – guitars
Cat Tate – bass
