Atlantic recording group Shinedown has announced details of its upcoming headline tour. The much-anticipated dates will kick off on September 10th at Baltimore’s Powerplant Live, and then traverse the United States though an October 24th finale at Charlotte, North Carolina’s Uptown Amphitheater (see below itinerary).
The tour carries on the sensational success of Shinedown’s RIAA gold certified third album, “THE SOUND OF MADNESS.” The acclaimed collection is highlighted by the #1 smash, “Second Chance,” currently standing atop the Hot AC airplay ranking for the eighth consecutive week. The Jacksonville, Florida-based quartet’s biggest crossover hit to date, “Second Chance” has also topped the charts at both Active Rock and Mainstream, while reaching the top 5 at CHR/Top 40 outlets nationwide. After dominating the rock charts, the track’s mainstream success has seen the band’s profile raised dramatically — People magazine recently featured the band while Entertainment Weekly highlighted “Second Chance” in its “10 Songs of Summer” playlist by noting, “Every summer needs its shamelessly histrionic big-blast-chorus crossover from the modern-rock charts. Shinedown win this year’s prize.” The band will be performing “Second Chance” on NBC’s “The Today Show,” airing Friday, September 4.
In addition, the RIAA platinum certified single’s companion video has proven equally popular. The clip — directed by Ryan Smith (Eminem, Breaking Benjamin) — is presently in “Heavy” rotation at MTV and MTV Hits, “Elite 8″ rotation at MTV2, and “X-Large” rotation at VH1, where it has gone to #1 on the network’s Top 20 Countdown numerous times.
As if all that weren’t enough, Shinedown’s most recent single, “The Sound of Madness,” continues to ring out at radio outlets across the country. The track currently stands at #2 at Mainstream, Alternative, and Active Rock, where it previously reached the #1 position. With the album’s lead-off single, “Devour,” also going to the top of the charts, Shinedown has earned the distinction of having all three singles from “THE SOUND OF MADNESS” become #1 Active Rock smashes. What’s more, the success of “The Sound Of Madness” marks Shinedown’s tenth consecutive top 10 showing at the format.
The next single from “THE SOUND OF MADNESS” will be “If You Only Knew,” slated to ship to Active Rock, Alternative Rock, and Hot AC radio outlets in late August. A companion video clip is currently in pre-production.
Shinedown — who recently performed “Second Chance” on CBS’ “The Early Show Saturday Edition” and NBC’s “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno” — is currently traveling the country as part of the “Stimulate This!” tour, set to run through late August. The four-band bill — also featuring fellow Atlantic artists Staind and Halestorm, along with Chevelle — was designed to offer hard rock fans maximum value at a minimal price. In a show of solidarity for their fans, Shinedown and their tourmates have worked closely with the concert promoters to create a package of exceptional value for ticket buyers. Through their collective efforts, base ticket prices for “Stimulate This!” remain mostly under $40 each — half the cost of comparable multi-band summer tour packages — with some venues offering lawn seats for less than $10.
Produced by multiple Grammy award winner Rob Cavallo (Kid Rock, Green Day), “THE SOUND OF MADNESS” debuted at #8 on the Billboard 200 upon its release last summer. In addition to enjoying their biggest domestic cross-over success, the album also marks the dynamic hard rock band’s first foray into the international marketplace, where it has been met with incredible enthusiasm, particularly in the UK: “Shinedown deliver monster ballads Bon Jovi would be proud of,” decreed Metal Hammer, “and there’s an angsty crunch that can comfortably kick Disturbed’s arse.” “There’s little doubt that Shinedown are among the most exciting new bands around,” declared Classic Rock, while Kerrang! praised singer Brent Smith as “simply a masterful entertainer and frontman, a star.”
Fueled by the ecstatic popular and critical response, Shinedown recently crossed the Atlantic for a major European tour, including performances at such world famous festivals as England’s Download Festival, Germany’s Rock am Ring and Rock im Park, and the Netherlands’ Pinkpop. Following the tour, Kerrang! again waxed ecstatic: “The Florida quintet receive a headliners welcome for a set that combines pummeling metal riffery with suitable hooky choruses and a sense of showmanship straight out of the Aerosmith/Guns N’ Roses school of rock.”
“THE SOUND OF MADNESS” follows the band’s RIAA platinum certified 2003 debut “LEAVE A WHISPER” and its gold certified 2005 follow-up, “US AND THEM.” Both albums have yielded a staggering seven consecutive top 5 radio hits, including “Fly From the Inside,” “45,” and the chart-topping “Save Me.”
Shinedown is Brent Smith (vocals), Barry Kerch (drums), Zach Myers (guitars), and Eric Bass (bass).

Las Vegas rockers, Adelitas Way will hit the road with Shinedown this fall in support of their self-titled debut, which released July 14th on Virgin/EMI Music and debuted at #16 on Billboard’s Top New Artist Chart. The tour will kick off in Richmond, VA on Friday, September 11 and will work its way across the Midwest and West coast then travel back ending in Orlando.
To mark the release of its self-titled debut, Adelitas Way recently celebrated at the Palms Casino Resort in its hometown of Las Vegas on the album’s street date. A select number of fans who purchased their CD at ZIA Records along with local radio contest winners, gained entry to a private concert by Adelitas Way at The Lounge at the Palms Casino Resort and the after-party at Moon. Preceding their debut celebration, Adelitas Way appeared at WWE’s Monday Night RAW in Orlando.
The album’s kick off single, the power-rock anthem “Invincible,” has already been tagged as WWE Superstars theme song, been used for spots promoting the 2009 season finale of the hit series “CSI: Miami” and is currently available on iTunes. Since then, the single been streamed nearly 200,000 times on Adelitas Way’s MySpace page and is building national airplay as it climbs at both Active and Rock radio charts.
In support of the single, the band shot their video for “Invincible,” which was directed by Dale Resteghini, (Fallout Boy, Hawthorne Heights, Alter Bridge). Adelitas Way wanted to create an epic video that would awaken the fight in anyone who is in need. The video focuses on everyday people who are faced with life challenging circumstances, while delivering an inspiring message of hope and perseverance. The video will appear on AOL’s NoiseCreep.
Adelitas Way is fronted by singer Rick DeJesus, who grew up in a rough Philadelphia neighborhood that was ravaged by drugs and poverty. In 2005, he seized an opportunity to move to Las Vegas where he met up with lead guitarist Chris Iorio, guitarist Keith Wallen, drummer Trevor Stafford and bassist Derek Johnston. Soon the quintet was opening for artists like Chris Cornell, Hinder and Tantric, generating an impressive industry buzz that resulted in their signing with Virgin.
Produced by the Grammy-nominated Johnny K (Disturbed, Plain White T’s, 3 Doors Down), the band’s debut album is filled with hard, edgy modern rock anthems spotlighting the shredding blues style of teenage axe-slinger Iorio and the propulsive, grunge-like drums of Huntington Beach, CA native Stafford, a veteran of Ozzfest band Shuvel. N.Y. bassist Johnston and West Virginia guitarist Wallen bring a combination of indie, hardcore and classic rock influences to the band’s distinctive sound.
Adelitas Way, whose name comes from an unplanned visit to a Tijuana brothel, is currently on tour with Saliva and will head out with Sick Puppies on August 13th. You can check out first single “Invincible” and other music from Adelitas Way on the group’s MySpace page (www.myspace.com/adelitasway) and at www.adelitaswaymusic.net.

Band to Perform Songs from The July 14 Release of LEAVE THIS TOWN, the Follow-Up to Its Quintuple-Platinum Debut
Tickets Go on Sale July 11; Daughtry Will Offer a Free Ticket to the First 50 Fans In Each Market Who Pre-Order LEAVE THIS TOWN at www.DaughtryOfficial.com
Daughtry will embark upon a short club tour this August, starting just weeks after the release of LEAVE THIS TOWN (19 Recordings/RCA Music Group), the follow-up to the band’s Grammy-nominated and quintuple-platinum debut.
Singer Chris Daughtry, bassist Josh Paul, drummer Joey Barnes, and guitarists Brian Craddock and Josh Steely will use the intimate shows to perform many of the songs from the new album on stage for the first time. The 13-date tour will kick off August 2 in Orlando, FL and end August 22 in Las Vegas, NV. Tickets go on sale July 11. Daughtry will offer limited VIP packages as a pre-sale July 8th – 10th. Additionally, the band will also give a free ticket to the first 50 fans in each market who pre-order LEAVE THIS TOWN from www.DaughtryOfficial.com.
“This club tour is a thank you to our loyal fans. Its a great way for them to see us up close and, more importantly, at a cheap price,” says singer Chris Daughtry.
More than a month before its official release, LEAVE THIS TOWN is already generating considerable buzz for its musical range.
Rolling Stone: “The surprisingly diverse results include everything from the clubby ‘Supernatural’ to the fiddle-driven Vince Gill duet ‘Tennessee Line.’” … “‘Call Your Name’ [is] an anthem reminiscent of ‘November Rain,’ complete with a stirring key change, falsetto vocal runs and an explosive Slash-style guitar climax.”
Billboard: “And while Daughtry’s voice and rock riffs still play center stage to most of the album’s tracks, several songs take some creative chances. Daughtry wrote ‘You Don’t Belong’ on his own; it’s a hard-driving song that wouldn’t sound out of place on an Alice in Chains album.”
Daughtry will begin an extensive North American tour this fall.

Pennsylvania Rock Outfit Continues to Tour Non-Stop, Joining Veer Union and Burn Halo on the Road in June; “HALESTORM” Now Available in Stores and Online
Atlantic Records has announced the release this week of the self-titled debut album from Halestorm. The set, which includes the first single, “I Get Off,” is now available in stores and through online retailers.
Produced by Howard Benson (Daughtry, My Chemical Romance, Flyleaf), “HALESTORM” is an explosive collection of infectious hard rock anthems, a fiery flurry of sexy hooks and rough and tumble grooves. Steering this runaway train is dynamic singer/guitarist Lzzy Hale, who brings a hypnotic intensity to such tracks as the sensual “I Get Off,” which is bulleting up the top 30 on the Active Rock radio chart.
Halestorm has begun garnering attention in the media, both in the U.S. and internationally. Mix magazine called Halestorm’s debut “rock ‘n’ roll at its finest.” UK music rag Kerrang! raved about Halestorm’s frenetic live performance, declaring: “…Halestorm’s delivery and songs are nothing short of note-perfect and instantly memorable, and if they don’t become incredibly massive immediately, there’s something very wrong with the world.” Revolver spotlights Lzzy Hale in the June issue’s “Hottest Chicks of Metal” feature, which is on newsstands now.
Halestorm has recruited new fans in droves on their non-stop nationwide tour. The band’s fierce live show wins over crowds city by city, every night. Over the last two months, the band has gathered nearly 10,000 in sales through pre-orders on their website and at their live shows. Currently, Halestorm is finishing up dates with Trapt, after which they’ll reunite with labelmates Shinedown for select shows. In June, the band will meet up with Veer Union and Burn Halo for a trek kicking off June 2 in Milwaukee.
Formed in 1998 by Lzzy and her brother, drummer Arejay Hale, Halestorm has made its bones as a major league hard rock outfit via countless North American gigs alongside such like-minded artists as Shinedown, Seether, Flyleaf, and Trapt. 2006 saw the release of Halestorm’s debut Atlantic EP, “ONE AND DONE,” which expertly captured the intensity and energy of the band’s live show.

U2.com today confirms that the U2 360 Tour will open at the Nou Camp Stadium in Barcelona on 30th June. The U2 360 Tour is sponsored by BlackBerry(R) and is the band’s first stadium outing since the Vertigo Tour 05/06 and follows the release of their acclaimed album, No Line On The Horizon. Their 12th studio album, No Line On The Horizon is already number 1 in the UK, Ireland, France, Germany, Belgium, Finland, Japan and the Czech Republic with further chart positions to be announced this week.
Produced by Live Nation Global Touring, U2 360 will visit 14 cities across Europe including dates in Milan, Gothenburg, Amsterdam, Paris, Nice, Dublin, Chorzow, Berlin, Gelsenkirchen, London, Sheffield and Glasgow before finishing at Millennium Stadium in Cardiff on 22nd August. The European tour will be followed by dates in North America beginning at Chicago’s Soldier Field on September 12th, 2009.
Long-time U2 Show Director Willie Williams has worked again with architect Mark Fisher (ZooTV, PopMart, Elevation and Vertigo), to create an innovative 360 design which affords an unobstructed view for the audience. U2 360 also marks the first time a band has toured in stadiums with such a unique and original structure (which can be viewed at U2.com).
“U2 has always been at their best when surrounded by their audience, this staging takes a giant leap forward. With 85 percent of the tickets priced at less than $95.00, general admission floor tickets priced at $55.00 and at least 10,000 tickets at every venue priced at the $30.00 price range, we have worked very hard to ensure that U2 fans can purchase a great priced ticket with a guaranteed great view,” says U2′s manager Paul McGuinness.
Arthur Fogel, Chief Executive Officer Global Touring/Chairman – Global Music Live Nation commented: “Following the overwhelming worldwide success of the Vertigo tour where every available ticket was sold, there is tremendous anticipation for this tour and to experience this revolutionary production. As usual fans will not be disappointed.”
Commenting on the new relationship between U2 and BlackBerry-maker Research In Motion (RIM), Paul McGuinness added: “This tour announcement marks the first stage of a relationship and shared vision between RIM and U2 that we expect will lead to new and innovative ways to enhance the mobile music experience on the BlackBerry platform for U2 fans. We look forward to sharing more details as the relationship unfolds.”
In keeping with their long-standing tradition, U2 will welcome a number of different support acts to the tour including Glasvegas, Elbow, Kaiser Chiefs, Snow Patrol and Black Eyed Peas with additional artists to be announced.
Tickets for U2 360 performances in Milan and Gothenburg go on sale this Friday, March 13th. Tickets for the Amsterdam performance go on sale this Saturday, March 14th. Full details of all dates and on-sale information as well as a virtual model of the unique production and seating positions can be found on a dedicated microsite at U2.com.

DEF LEPPARD ANNOUNCES 40-CITY TOUR WITH POISON & SPECIAL GUEST CHEAP TRICK
TICKETS FOR THE CONCERT EVENT OF THE SUMMER GO ON SALE BEGINNING MARCH 6TH
In what is sure to be the biggest rock event this summer, Britain’s greatest arena rock band Def Leppard will join forces with Poison and special guest Cheap Trick for a 39-city North American Tour. Tickets go on-sale to the general public beginning Friday, March 6th at www.livenation.com. Citi cardmembers will have access to presale tickets beginning March 4th at 10am local time through Citi’s Private Pass Program. For complete presale details visit www.privatepass.citi.com.
With combined sales of 100 Million albums worldwide, 65 million from Leppard alone, fans can expect hits like “PHOTOGRAPH,” “ROCK OF AGES,” “C’MON C’MON,” “POUR SOME SUGAR ON ME,” “FOOLIN’,” “BRINGIN’ ON THE HEARTBREAK, “NINE LIVES,” and countless others creating an evening of rock ‘n’ roll unlike any other this summer.
The tour, which kicks off on June 23rd in Camden, N.J, promises an unprecedented night for those in attendance. The show will highlight three decades of music from three of rock ‘n’ roll’s greatest bands for a four-hour interactive concert experience that will begin the moment that the doors open. It will feature Bluetooth technology and delivery, text communications prior to and during performances and a host of interactive offerings. This in addition to an arsenal of nearly 60 Top 40 hits including Poison’s “EVERY ROSE HAS ITS THORN,” “UNSKINNY BOP,” “RIDE THE WIND,” “SOMETHIN’ TO BELIEVE IN,” and “NOTHIN’ BUT A GOOD TIME,” as well as Cheap Trick’s “I WANT YOU TO WANT ME” and “SURRENDER.”
“I’m very pleased that we are coming back to North America,” said Def Leppard front man Joe Elliott. “We’re gonna be touring with some new friends and some old friends and can guarantee it will be the Rock Tour of the summer.“
“There is nothing better than an epic summer concert and this tour is a dream come true for rock ‘n’ roll fans. It will be a night of a thousand hits with three hard-charging rock bands on the road together,” said Poison front man and star of VH1′s top-rated “Rock of Love Bus” reality show Bret Michaels.
Def Leppard (Joe Elliott – vocals, Vivian Campbell – guitar, Phil Collen – guitar, Rick “Sav” Savage -bass and Rick Allen – drums) sits at the top of an iconic class of rock ‘n’ roll bands. In fact, they are one of a handful of select groups, including the likes of The Beatles, Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd and The Eagles, who have been awarded the RIAA’s prestigious Diamond Award more than once (“PYROMANIA” and “HYSTERIA“). The band’s most recent album “SONGS FROM THE SPARKLE LOUNGE” debuted last year at #5 on the Billboard Top 200; earning Def Leppard their highest-charting debut since their 1992 album “ADRENALIZE“.
Over the course of their career, Def Leppard has produced a series of classic groundbreaking albums that set the sound for generations of music fans and artists. The group’s spectacular live shows, filled with powerful melodic rock anthems, have become synonymous with their name and are an institution in the touring industry as they continue to sell out arenas worldwide.
Poison, one of rock’s most iconic and enduring bands, has been one of the music industry’s top acts, with multi-platinum album sales and sold out tours since first bursting onto the scene in 1986. Poison’s Bret Michaels, C.C. Deville, Bobby Dall and Rikki Rockett have sold more than 30 million albums worldwide and charted twelve Top 10 hits. Throughout Poison’s career, the band’s members have enjoyed collaborative and solo successes from the stage to screen. Bret Michaels currently stars in the #1 viewed reality show on cable, VH1′s “Rock of Love Bus.”
With more than 5,000 performances, 20 million records sold, 29 movie soundtracks and 40 gold and platinum-recording awards, Cheap Trick may be one of the most covered bands of all time. Since the 70s they’ve been blending elements of pop, punk and even metal in a way that is instantly catchy and recognizable.

Platinum Danish Band VOLBEAT On Tour with NIGHTWISH
Guitar Gangsters & Cadillac Blood on Mascot Records U.S.A March 17th
VOLBEAT unleashes their 2nd U.S. album, Guitar Gangsters & Cadillac Blood, March 17th on Mascot Records U.S.A. This new rock-a-billy metal masterpiece arrives on the tail end of their successful 2008 release Rock The Rebel/Metal The Devil. They will support this release with a month long tour with Multi-platinum Finish band Nightwish in May 2009. Tour dates below~
The title Guitar Gangsters & Cadillac Blood refers to a story that connects seven of the thirteen (official) songs on the album: Guitar Gangsters & Cadillac Blood, Find That Soul, Maybellene I Hofteholder, Still Counting, Back To Prom, Light A Way and A Broken Man And The Dawn. It’s a tale about a travelling band whose leader is a man that once got shot in the desert and left for dead. During the bands tour he went on a mission to find the mysterious killer that put seven bullets in his body. While travelling from city to city the band ends up in a small town called Ten House City performing for just a handful of people in the local bar. The songs offer observations of the people in the rundown venue, made by the bandleader. This storyline will continue to be a connecting theme and developed as VOLBEAT writes future albums.
VOLBEAT is comprised of vocalist/guitarist Michael Poulsen, guitarist Thomas Bredahl, bassist Anders Kjølholm and drummer Jon Larsen.
