    I got my ticket for $80 and thought that was alright, but $69 would obviously have been better. For those big shows it can be worth waiting for a Lasttix sale. Anyway, it was a cool show.

    There's a few you could add to the list. I've bought tickets to see High On Fire (Feb) and Cherie Currie (May).

    There's also Truckfighters (Jan), The Sword/Clowns/American Sharks (Feb), and some punk bands like Agent Orange (Dec-Jan) and GBH (Feb-Mar).

    Also now DevilDriver, Front Line Assembly, Dream on Dreamer, Aversions Crown (fucked if I know - I can't read their logo properly), 28 Days, Rick Dangerous, MofiIsDead, My Secret Circus and Ham (??). I've NFI who most of those bands are, but that doesn't mean much.

    They've raised $212k so far, with a goal of $3.2m and 17 days to go. Seems like quite a lot to raise in a short space of time.

    Legion Festival isn't happening this year now.

    They are going to aim to have it around the time of Australia Day next year.

    LORDI and a few more local bands added to the LEGION lineup.

    Still only raised $347,000 out of $3.275 million so not looking likely.

    Not a tour, but strong rumours that SONISPHERE and/or DOWNLOAD festivals may come to Australia.

    Interesting.

    LEGENDARY VOICES OF ROCK TO TOUR AUSTRALIA! PRESENTED BY GOLFING CHAMPION JAN STEPHENSON

    FORMER JOURNEY LEAD SINGER STEVE AUGERI AND FORMER KANSAS LEAD SINGER ROBBY STEINHARDT COMING DOWN UNDER

    LEGENDARY VOICES OF ROCK TO TOUR AUSTRALIA!

    Legendary golfer Jan Stephenson is proud to announce the Legendary Voices of Rock tour featuring the music of Journey and Kansas with Journey’s lead singer Steve Augeri and Kansas’s lead singer Robby Steinhardt. Steve Augeri will be singing Journey’s greatest hits such as “Any Way You Want It” and “Don’t Stop Believing” while Robby Steinhardt will be playing his iconic violin and performing Kansas hits such as “Carry on Wayward Son” and “Dust in The Wind”. Tour dates and ticket info available at www.janstephensonevents.com

    The Legendary Voices of Rock show is two hours long and will visit Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne and Hobart and various cities in between including Tweed Heads, Armidale, Port Macquarie, Newcastle and the Central Coast.

    The Legendary Voices of Rock is presented by champion Australian professional golfer Jan Stephenson. Jan Stephenson has been presenting tours throughout the states, and this is the first time she is doing it in Australia! “I am so excited to bring these American treasures to Australia, the Legendary Voices of Rock tour is going to be an incredible time for people of all ages,” says Jan Stephenson.

    Steve Augeri is an American rock singer best known as the lead vocalist for the rock group Journey from 1998 to 2006. Steve recorded three albums during a successful eight-year tenure that brought the world’s most accomplished melodic rock group back to the stage for multiple world tours to millions of fans, most notably for the songs “Anyway You Want It” and “ Don’t Stop Believing” which are still popular today, used in shows like Glee and movies like Charlies Angels.

    Robby Steinhardt is best known as the rock violinist and singer for the group Kansas, to which he was the front man and co-lead singer along with keyboardist Steve Walsh, from 1973–1982 and 1997–2006. Steinhardt's violin sound, and its interplay with the guitar and keyboards, defined the Kansas sound. His lead vocals provided a contrast to the high tenor of singer Steve Walsh and the two often played off each other and sang in harmony, with Steinhardt sometimes taking the lower scale, but also holding the high notes in songs such as “Cheyenne Anthem” as well as the spine tingling scream during “Portrait (he knew)”.

    Stormbringer will back both Steve and Robby. The band effortlessly delivers air tight renditions of hit songs like Queen's ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’, Pink Floyd's ‘The Wall’ and Bon Jovi's ‘Livin' on a Prayer’. Possessing a rockin' catalogue of non-stop party and dance songs, the band provides crowd pleasing music to perfectly match any large event. Stormbringer features soaring lead vocals, crisp four-part harmonies, thunderous drums, dramatic keyboards and crunching guitars in their hundred-plus song repertoire.

    The Legendary Voices of Rock will play 13 shows. VIP tickets include a pre show reception hosted by Jan Stephenson and a meet and greet and photo with the stars, plus an autographed poster.
