Yeah - Will probably regret it.
Ok... Richie Kotzen may well now be becoming my favourite musician.
Yep, I've been listening to him a fair bit over the last week or so. So annoyed I didn't bother checking him out years earlier - always assumed he would just be a guitarist dude, didn't realise he sang too. I'm such a fool
So you going to buy a ticket on Friday?
Guarantee u can get into Extreme between now and April if you get the III Sides album
I'm digging Kotzens latest album called '24 Hours' at the moment.
Took a few listens to sink in but it's great!
Any Melbourne-ites been to gigs at the Palace Theatre?
What's it like? I see it is all general admission with no reserved seating which I'm not usually a fan of, considering my wife is very short.
Easy to get up near the front?
I haven't been to the new Palace unfortunately.
I'll have to give them a miss, unfortunately. Already spending too much on stuff next year, trip and gigs etc. Kind of bummed, but hopefully he can headline a tour here soon.
I've been there lots of times in the last six or so years. It's a great venue, with several levels. It's easy to get on the floor, and you can get a good spot if you arrive early, like anywhere I guess. If she's short though you might want to get in early and reserve a spot on the balcony. You get a great view up there.
This tour has now been cancelled.
Sucks balls. Had already booked flights to Melbourne.
Due to an unforeseen conflict in scheduling, Extreme regret that they will be postponing their previously announced 2013 April Australian tour. The band are looking forward to returning to Australia and reconnecting with their loyal fans and are working with Lennard Promotions on rescheduling the tour. All tickets purchased will be fully refunded and revised dates for the tour will be announced at a later time. Extreme and Lennard Promotions regret any inconvenience that this rescheduling may cause for those who have already purchased tickets and look forward to announcing revised dates as soon as possible.
That's a shame, but on a selfish note I may actually have money for a ticket of they come later instead.
Here's a video for the first song off the Portnoy/Kotzen/Sheehan album: http://miterew.com/movie/play/sm20662373
Sounds very cool!
Sounds fucking cool.
Is Portnoy getting his fingers in more pies than ever post-DT, or is there just more attention on his projects now that he has no 'main band'?
Definitely more fingers in more pies.
Since leaving DT he has recorded albums with:
Adrenaline Mob Covers EP
The Winery Dogs
Neal Morse (solo)
Is currently writing/recording with:
Has toured with:
Flying Colors (I saw them in NY in Sept last year... Was amazing).
PSMS (Portnoy Sherinian MacAlpine, Sheehan)
The Winery Dogs is my most anticipated album of the year.
Did anyone else check out The Winery Dogs?
Killer classic rock vibe with some flashes of crazy instrumental runs.
Album of the year?
I liked the jammy vibe and the sound, but the big choruses kinda put me off, which is weird but oh well.
So Richie has a new album coming out this month and has said on Facebook and twitter that he is touring Australia this year. A promoter (Storm Front Touring) has confirmed this and said dates are coming the next few days.
Pretty excited. I caught Richie with the Winerh Dogs in London last year and they were great, but I'd probably prefer his solo stuff to be honest
I could never get into the Winery Dogs, even though I like each guy individually. Supergroups are funny like that.
