According to The Houston Press, Manson's tour manager escorted photographers from the pit prior to the start of his set at the Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion, explaining that the singer was feeling very ill and did not want his picture taken.
The paper notes Manson remained "mostly stationary and visibly shaking at times while he braced himself with the microphone stand" during the abbreviated five-song set, which included very long breaks between songs with the stage blacked out
Manson referenced a case of "heat poisoning" prior to the start of the evening's third song, "This Is The New Sh*t", before collapsing on top of one of the monitors at the end of the next tune, his cover of the Eurythmics' classic, "Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This)" - as roadies could be seen on the side of the stage worriedly contemplating on whether or not to assist him.
Manson managed one more song - the title track to 1996's "Antichrist Superstar" - before leaving the stage, with the Houston media outlet adding that "talk backstage speculated that it was a horrible case of food poisoning" that caused the singer's early exit.
During Zombie's headlining set, the rocker referenced his tour mate's status prior to delivering what should have been their nightly duet on a recently-released cover of a Beatles classic.
"Unfortunately tonight, my good friend Mr. Manson is not feeling too good," Zombie told the crowd, who expressed their disappointment about his brief performance. "Why are you booing him, he doesn't feel good; I can't help it. He is under the weather, unfortunately, feeling like crap, and wishes he could be here right now to do this with me because it takes two to tango when there's twins of evil involved. I guess I'll do this one solo ...we'll scream real loud...he's probably on the bus feeling like crap...we'll make him feel better, man" as the band began "Helter Skelter." See video of Manson incident and Zombie's performance here.
The singer was forced to leave the band in 2016 because of his battle with Marfan Syndrome and he revealed late last week that he is currently dealing with the new complications related to the disease.
He shared with fans: "Cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) leak (have had multiple of them in the past) collecting in my head this time around. Pouches of the fluid are accumulating between my skull & skin leading to swelling in different areas each day. Discover, drain, patch, assessment, repeat. Where, what, why? Infection of said spinal fluid? Intro: intravenous wide spectrum antibiotics administered daily. Observe. More blood cultures, observe. Currently on day five of this, two hospitals, MRI's, CT scans, X-rays, EKG's, ultra sounds, blood work, etc.
"I'm at Stanford University Hospital with my specialists once again for further observation & testing. Was just here Friday for sleep/pain study but had to return when another hospital team couldn't help my unique case/situation. Another step. Another hurdle Marfan Syndrome throws in my way. Another day I get to kick it in the face & remind it that it doesn't own me, nor can it keep me down for good."
"I wrote this song on the spot to help the band get up and running once we got back in the studio this past January," explains Slash. "It's just a go-for-it type of song. Pretty straightforward rock and fun to play."
"'Mind Your Manners' was something I didn't hear until the guys had started jamming together," adds Kennedy. "It's a cool, up-tempo sort of thing and I knew immediately it would have its own place on this record. Lyrically, it's about how when things are going well there always tends to be someone who tries to rain on your parade and knock you down. You have to keep people like that in check and not let them get to you." Listen to the new songhere.
Billboard reports the project's 14 tracks are a mix of standards - including "White Christmas," "Silent Night," and "Away In A Manger" - and lesser known holiday tunes alongside a new original song, "For Love On Christmas Day."
The legendary guitarist dedicated his take on "Jingle Bells" to the "memory of Avicii," the Swedish DJ who was found dead in Muscat, Oman from an apparent suicide in April.
"I had in my head that these holiday songs could be done with a slight blues tinge, and I started to figure out how to play the blues lines in between the vocals," says Clapton. "I got it down and one of the most identifiable songs on the album, the one that became the foundational style, is 'Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas.'" Read more and see the tracklisting here.
The lone song on the album that features guitarist David Gilmour as the lead vocalist while bassist Waters sings the refrains and interludes, "Not Now John" reached No. 30 in the UK as "The Final Cut" topped the charts there and in several other countries, including Sweden, Norway, Germany and France.
With Gilmour unhappy about the direction and content on "The Final Cut" - the only Pink Floyd album to not include keyboardist Richard Wright - the guitarist went on to record and tour behind his second solo effort, 1984's "About Face", while Waters did the same with "The Pros And Cons Of Hitch Hiking" and drummer Nick Mason issued his second record, "Profiles", in 1985.
Waters went on to resign from Pink Floyd in 1985 while launching a failed legal battle for control of the legendary UK band's name; Gilmour stepped up to lead the band's first post-Waters album, 1987's "A Momentary Lapse Of Reason", and accompanying world tour.
Following Wright's passing in 2008, Pink Floyd released their final album, "The Endless River", in 2014. here.
The group will deliver an acoustic set on The Loupe, which offers 360-degree views of the city as part of the tower's recent $100 million renovation.
"I've visited the Space Needle many times in my life and it's going to be a real honor and a total trip for us to play there," says guitarist/vocalist Jerry Cantrell. "We're so proud of this album and to be able to celebrate its release with a performance at one of our town's most iconic landmarks is really special. It sorta reminds me of the time we did the 'Again' video, but instead of being 6 feet in the air rocking out on a glass floor, we'll be 50 stories high... slight difference."
SiriusXM will broadcast the band's acoustic performance exclusively on Friday, August 31 at 5 PM ET and PT via satellite and through the SiriusXM app on smartphones and other connected devices, as well as online at siriusxm.com.
Due August 24, "Rainier Fog" marks Alice In Chains' first album in five years; they worked on the set with producer Nick Raskulinecz at studios in Seattle, Nashville and Los Angeles.
The Space Needle event lands a day after Major League Baseball's Seattle Mariners will host an Alice In Chains Night at Safeco Field on August 20 as part of the album launch festivities. here.
The late night television appearance - which also delivered an online exclusive of a cover of Bull Moose Jackson's "Big Ten Inch Record" as heard on 1975's "Toys In The Attic" - followed the Boston band's official announcement of a spring 2019 residency in Las Vegas a day earlier on the same network's Today Show.
"Aerosmith: Deuces Are Wild" will see the group perform an 18-date series at the Park Theater at the new Park MGM resort in Las Vegas beginning Saturday, April 6, 2019.
Producer Giles Martin has been brought in to oversee a production that promises "one of the most immersive, state-of-the art audio and video technology experiences in Las Vegas," featuring never-seen-before content from the band.
"We wanted to bring in there things that we really can't do on the road on a regular tour," guitarist Joe Perry told The Today Show. "So we want to bring a show that still has Aerosmith and all the guts of Aerosmith but has a whole other element to it that we've never been able to do before." Watch both perfomrances here.
The New York band's fourth record saw the introduction of drummer Marky Ramone, who replaced founding member Tommy Ramone after he left to do more producing and writing for the group.
The first project by The Ramones to consciously alter their classic sound in an effort to achieve radio airplay ultimately failed, according to Tommy, as the set peaked at No. 103 on the US Billboard 200 following a No. 49 listing of the previous "Rocket To Russia" album.
Packaged in a 12 x 12 hardcover book featuring rare photos, artwork and essays from some of the people involved in the project, the 2018 "Road To Ruin" 3CD/1LP Deluxe Edition box set reissue presents the record's original mix alongside a new 40th anniversary one by the album's original engineer/mixer, Ed Stasium.
A second disc offers up over twenty unreleased recordings, including rough mixes for every album track, starkly different alternate takes of two songs, and two unreleased outtakes: "I Walk Out" and "S.L.U.G." - unfinished during the original recording sessions in 1978 and completed by Stasium for the anniversary release.
The final disc has a previously unreleased recording of the band's entire 1979 New Year's Eve concert, which was mixed live by Stasium and broadcast on WNEW-FM. Recorded in New York City at The Palladium, with audio sourced from Tommy Ramone's original cassette of the console recording, it features blistering performances of "Blitzkrieg Bop," "Rockaway Beach," and "Sheena Is A Punk Rocker," along with several songs from Road To Ruin: "I Don't Want You," "I Wanna Be Sedated," and "I Wanted Everything." Read more and listen to the song here.
After an entire year spent on the road, the Paranormal Tour ended in Paris on December 7, 2017 at the world renowned Olympia; since its opening in 1888, the venue has witnessed changes in entertainment and pop culture for 130 years - from the can-can through Édith Piaf to Johnny Hallyday and the Beatles and...Alice Cooper.
"A Paranormal Evening" sees Cooper and his band deliver classic tracks and fan favorites from his lengthy career at the world-famous Olympia, including "I'm Eighteen", "School's Out", and "No More Mr. Nice Guy", among others.
The project will be available in multiple formats, including as a 2CD digipak, 2LP Gatefold (white and red LP), and digitally. Watch the trailer here.
Billed after their 2013 album of the same name, the Maryland rockers were joined by a lineup that included Black Label Society, Corrosion Of Conformity, Eyehategod, and Let There Be Rock School band. "Thanks to Greg Shiley, Shiley Acres and all the bands," says Clutch, "and especially all the folks that came out this year. We'll c'ya up there in 2019."
"OH MY GOODNESS! What can I say about yesterday," posted the Shiley Acres team the day after the big event. "Our whole crew worked our butts off, and had a ball doing it. It was one of the best shows we've ever had!! WE can't thank you all enough for supporting us. That is the only way we can get bigger and better groups here for us all to enjoy!
"Thank you to Clutch, Black Label Society, Corrosion Of Conformity, Eyehategod, and the great kids at the schools of rock. The Shiley Acres sun came out, and the crowd was GREAT!! We had people come from all over the country, Australia, and London, England! Thank you all!!" Watch the video here.
We initially recorded "Spaceman" because we won some studio time as a result of coming 2nd place in a Battle of the Bands held at Macquarie Uni in 2016. In terms of the song itself, we were aiming for something with well crafted punchy lyrics, catchy melodies and a tasteful guitar solo to complement the main riff that acts as a hook for the entire song.
The lyrics are based around our determination to make a name for ourselves in the music industry. We combined metal with rap influences to create something that is stylistically a little different for us. The track begins with an ambient guitar to build tension and set the mood before suddenly diving head first into a powerful riff. The track was recorded, mixed and mastered at The Brain Studios by Clayton Segelov.
Hearing is believing. Now that you know the story behind the song, listen for yourselfright here!
