Spinal Tap Self-Confim For Glastonbury

spinal_tap

Spinal Tap have self-confirmed that they will be playing Glastonbury Festival this year, surprising fans who may have expected a perhaps more-fitting Download appearance.

In an interview with Philadelphia Daily News Christopher Guest, better known as lead guitarist Nigel Tufnel in the ‘This Is Spinal Tap’ rockumentary, said: “We originally thought about doing a full-blown “Tap” tour this year to mark the 25th anniversary of the film’s release. But that would have been a very big deal in terms of show production, requiring a lot of effects, two 18-wheelers full of equipment, a tour bus.

“To be honest, we couldn’t get that together. But we will do a couple of “Tap” shows in Britain, at Wembley Arena and the Glastonbury Festival.”

The band will join headliners Blur, Bruce Springsteen and Neil Young at the already sold-out festival taking place on the 24th, 25th, 26th, 27th and 28th June this year.



Sonisphere Announce Slipknot’s Corey Taylor and Third Stage Details

sonisphere-new-lineup
Sonisphere have unveiled a brand new third stage for the Knebworth-based festival, boasting debut UK performances from Slipknot members, a batch of new bands, a comedy stage and even a cinema.

‘Bohemia Village’ will be open on Thursday afternoon, available to all Sonisphere ticket holders and continuing into the wee hours of the morning. The third stage will be headlined by Slipknot’s Corey Taylor, aswell as ‘Knot Clown Shawn Crahan’s side project, Dirty Little Rabbits. More bands confirmed for Bohemia include Cancer Bats, Attack! Attack!, Rolo Tomassi, The Ataris and The Chapman Family.

Sonisphere have confirmed that all acts on the third stage will not conflict musically with any bands playing on the main stages, meaning you can squeeze in Corey Taylor before watching Metallica headline. Aswell as the new acts, Sonisphere have announced that Bohemia will include a ‘fairground of the damned’, a cinema playing ‘rock-friendly films’ aswell as a Jagermeister Rock Karaoke. If that wasn’t enough, throughout the day the village will host the Monster Energy Drink Ball Of Steel Stunt Show featuring motorcycle freestyling and if extreme sports isn’t your bag a plethora of comedy acts have been added to keep you laughing your hangover off.

Bohemia will also house the previously mentioned Guitar Hero: Metallica Experience which will give all you wannabes a chance to perform on Sonisphere’s main stage and emulate Metal monsters James, Kirk, Lars and Rob (and Jason Newsted).

Speaking to the official website, Slipknot’s Corey Taylor said he is “very excited to be a part of this festival. It’ll be the first show of its kind I’ve ever done in the UK, and I think there are many fans who’ve waited long enough to see it.”

The planners are definitely attempting to make Sonisphere more than just a bunch of bands on a stage, has this ‘Moulin Rouge meets Mad Max’ type extravaganza lured you into getting a ticket?



Paul Stanley: “New Album Is Better Than Classic KISS Records”

Germany Kiss Tour
KISS frontman Paul Stanley graced Danny Bonaduce’s radio show this morning, where he spoke about the upcoming fan-routed KISS tour, his art gallery appearances and briefly about the newest KISS album.

The as-of-yet untitled new album has already been self-confirmed for a September release by Paul Stanley himself, who said in the new interview that the band are close to finished it. He also noted that the band’s recent effort is “as good [as], if not better than, some of the vintage” KISS records.

It’s certainly a bold claim! Not beyond them though. Do you have high hopes for the new album?

The full interview can be downloaded as an mp3 from This Location.
