Green Day have cancelled their club tour that was due to launch in Seattle at the Paramount Theatre on September 26th and wind down in Tempe, AZ at the Marquee Theatre on December 10th.  Tickets for these clubs shows will be refunded at point of purchase.

Additionally, Green Day have postponed all scheduled appearances for the months of January and February 2013.  New dates for these rescheduled shows will be announced shortly and previously purchased tickets will be honored on the new dates.

“Obviously the timing for this isn’t ideal, but Billie Joe’s well-being is our main concern,” said Mike Dirnt.  “We are happy to say that Billie Joe is doing well, and we want to thank you all for the outpouring of support and well wishes that we have received, and we can’t wait to see you all again soon.

Green Day also announced they would move up the release date of Green Day ¡Tré! to December 11, 2012 from its original date of January 15, 2013.

“We feel bad we have to delay our tour, so to make up for it we want to give our fans the music earlier than we had planned,” said Tré Cool.  “If we couldn’t be there to play it for you live, the least we could do was give you the next best thing.”

Rock ‘n’ Roll Fantasy Camp – Behind the Scenes in Sin City

October 17, 2012 by  
Filed under Daily Music News

Have you ever thought about being a rock star? You don’t need to answer that – of course you have! Who hasn’t dreamt of selling out Madison Square Garden or Wembley Stadium or holding court like Lemmy at the Rainbow? Well, now you can be one – even just for a day. After scattered camps around the globe since the late nineties, Rock ‘n’ Roll Fantasy Camp has made its permanent home in Las Vegas – in collaboration with the MGM Grand hotel – and the inaugural camp at the new Sin City home base was held October 10-14, 2012.

In true Vegas fashion, the purple neon sign at headquarters is so bright it can be seen from the Strip, which is several blocks away. Offering three and five day camp packages and ‘Rockstar for a Day’experience packages on monthly basis (No camp in December 2012 though), as well as corporate team building events (picture your boss rocking the stage like a member of Kiss or Motley Crue!) and you don’t even need to have any musical talent to sign up! The only restriction is, they would really prefer you to be over the age of 21, just because this IS Vegas. Campers are grouped by experience level, but if you claim Expert level? Be ready to cough up an audition video to prove it. If Kip Winger doesn’t think you’re an Expert player? You get bumped down to Intermediate or Beginner.

Past campers have learned from and worked alongside counselors such as  Zakk Wylde, Gene Simmons, Slash, Ace Frehley, Lita Ford, Steven Tyler, Bruce Kulick, and Vince Neil, among other notables.  Future headliner counselors include John Popper from Blues Traveler, Warren Haynes from the Allman Brothers, and Jack Bruce from Cream in November, Dave Navarro (Jane’s Addiction) and Roger Daltrey in January, Alice Cooper and Mike Portnoy (Dream Theater, Adrenaline Mob) in February, and the Red Rocker himself, Sammy Hagar (and the Wabos) in March. (Let’s not even discuss the plethora of other counselors who come in! Rudy Sarzo. John Moyer. Vinny Appice. Eddie Trunk. The list goes on!) This isn’t a situation where you get a few minutes of watch and learn and then you’re on your own. You spend full days with your counselors, learning some of the stuff that made them famous, or rewriting lyrics to one of their tunes, or just playing alongside them. Founder and CFO David Fishof told a story of how campers rewrote lyrics to an Aerosmith tune with the songwriter’s help. If you think this whole thing is akin to jamming in someone’s garage, you need to think again. The headquarters boasts twelve separate practice studios outfitted with state of the art equipment from companies such as Roland and Cakewalk. (DW drum kits were also seen in the practice rooms and the performance studio.) If you have your own axe, they’re cool if you bring it. Just make sure it is clearly labeled with your info.

After you spend all day learning from your counselors, you get to start out just the way most rockstars did too – playing a gig in a club! Okay, it’s not the local dive bar down the block, the nightly showcases are at Rouge nightclub in the MGM Grand hotel. (Next stop? The Whisky a Go-Go?) But if your stage fright is SO bad that breathing into a paper bag won’t save you, you won’t be left out….Whats rock ‘n’  roll without groupies? Every band needs them! According to CEO David Clontz, the October camp had about 20% of their attendance as groupies.

Think you have what it takes? Go to or call 888-762-2263 and sign up. Packages start at $299 for Rockstar for a Day and the multi-day packages include your hotel room. Who knows? You might turn out to be the Next Big Thing.

Triple ‘Heart’ Attack Review – Kicking and Screaming: A Story of Heart, Soul, and Rock and Roll / Fanatic / Strange Euphoria

Well guys this will be a first for your 80’s Guy..try and review three HUGE releases by Heart in the same post.  These include:  Kicking and Screaming A Story of Heart, Soul, and Rock and Roll a very moving tell all written by Ann and Nancy Wilson with Charles R. Cross, Strange Euphoria a 3 CD/1 DVD Box set retrospective spanning nearly 40 years of Heart music and Fanatic, the brand new 2012 Heart Studio Album.  Talk about your cardiac alert due to sensory overload!  I may need a defibrillator and CPR when all is said and done but knowing I’m paying my own tribute to the dynamic sister duo of Ann and Nancy Wilson maybe just what the doctor ordered.
