Chickenfoot posted a 10 minute video from the opening night of the Different Devil 2012 tour. Go inside the soundcheck, show and aftershow of their gig on May 4th in South Lake Tahoe, NV!
Drummer Chad Smith rejoined Chickenfoot onstage for the first time on the tour in support of their latest album, 'Chickenfoot III' on May 16th at Boston’s Orpheum Theatre. Kenny Aronoff has been handling the drumming chores due to Smith’s commitment with the Red Hot Chili Peppers.
Earlier in the set before Chad jammed with the band, Sammy Hagar made a passing reference to him, joking that, "if Chad was here, I’d kick his ass." After the band left the stage, a man in a Kiss t-shirt and backwards baseball cap sat down behind Aronoff’s drums. The fans then realized that it was Smith, and went nuts.
The band proceeded to jam on 'Oh Yeah’, after which Hagar turned to Smith and said, "Chad, you haven’t had this much fun all year and you know it." They then broke into a cover of Jimi Hendrix‘s 'Foxy Lady' with a bit of 'Manic Depression' thrown in. That was followed by 'Different Devil,' then a tribute to the late Ronnie Montrose with a cover of 'Rock Candy,' with Aronoff helping out on the cymbols.
Styx will be invading the TV airwaves throughout the month of January, promoting their upcoming DVD release, Styx: The Grand Illusion/Pieces Of Eight Live, out January 31st.
Tommy Shaw, James “JY” Young, Chuck Panozzo, Lawrence Gowan, Ricky Phillips and Todd Sucherman will be keeping very busy. Tomorrow (Wednesday, January 11th) Styx will perform 'Come Sail Away' on The Rosie Show, which will air at 7 PM ET/PT on OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network. It's been said that host Rosie O’Donnell accompanied the band on her own drum kit. That should be interesting...I guess.
The Styx episode of VH1’s Behind The Music has been updated. It's now called Behind The Music Remastered, and will air this Saturday, January 14th at 9 PM ET/PT on VH1 Classic.
But wait...there's more: NBC will air 'Improve-Ice Starring Styx,' on Sunday, January 15th at 4 PM ET/PT, which was filmed in Greenville, SC at the Bi-Lo Center and features champion figure skaters Johnny Weir, Michael Weiss, Nancy Kerrigan, Jeremy Abbott, Ryan Bradley, Sasha Cohen, Nicole Bobek and Mirai Nagasu performing to various STYX classics. All of their routines were choreographed the day of the show.
The HDNet channel will re-broadcast the 2006 concert special, 'One with Everything - Styx & The Contemporary Youth Orchestra of Cleveland,' on Sunday, January 22nd at 9pm ET/PT. Styx joined forces with the 171 piece orchestra and choir to perform various Styx classics.
It's all to help promote the release of two of the most beloved albums in the Styx catalog. 1977's 'The Grand Illusion' and 1978's 'Pieces Of Eight.' Eagle Rock Entertainment will release Styx: The Grand Illusion/Pieces Of Eight Live on DVD, Blu-Ray, and DVD/2CD on January 31. This show was recorded November 9, 2010 at the historic Orpheum Theater in Memphis, Tennessee, on the tour that saw them perform both these albums in their entirety for the first time.
This 20-song two-hour and 11-minute presentation features stunning high-definition visuals accenting the complex musical arrangements recorded in DTS-HD Master Audio, Dolby Digital 5.1, and LPCM Stereo. The staging of these two multi-platinum albums and the fevered response makes this concert a must for all Styx fans. The Grand Illusion/Pieces of Eight Live also includes the bonus feature "Putting On The Show," an inside look at the people and equipment needed to stage such a massive spectacle.
Hot Topic is honored to present the exclusive world premiere of Megadeth's "Black Swan." The track is from their epic thirteenth album, the aptly titled TH1RT3EN, due out on November 1. "If there was ever a song that in my mind that could rival 'Symphony of Destruction' for its undeniable heavy groove and killer simplicity, it's 'Black Swan,'" explains Megadeth legend/vocalist/guitarist Dave Mustaine.
This week, HDNet Concerts is bringing you the outspoken, hard hitting MEGADETH to the HDNet airwaves.
