Early this spring, The Rolling Stones made headlines the world over when it did something that no band has ever done.  The band became the first rock act to ever perform a free, live show in the city of Havana.  Now this fall audiences will be able to experience that landmark concert for themselves when Eagle Rock Entertainment releases Havana Moon: The Rolling Stones Live in Cuba.

The new Rolling Stones live recording, captured by award-winning film director Paul Dugdale, will be released in stores and online on Friday, November 11th.

One million people turned out for the concert, which was held the very same week that President Obama became the first United States President to visit Cuba in 88 years.  His visit was touted by countless news agencies around the world as the “warm up act” for The Rolling Stones.

When the band took the stage, front man Mick Jagger addressed the crowd quoting fellow Bob Dylan as he said, “Finally the times are changing. Cuba, we are so happy to be here.  The concert’s extensive set list featured many of the band’s biggest hits including: ‘Brown Sugar,’ ‘Jumpin’ Jack Flash,’ ‘It’s Only Rock N’ Roll,’ ‘Paint It Black,’ ‘Honky Tonk Women,’ ‘Start Me Up,’ and ‘You Can’t Always Get What You Want,’ and ‘(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction),’ among many other songs.  The complete track listing for the concert is noted below.

 

TRACK LISTING

1) Jumpin’ Jack Flash

2) It’s Only Rock ‘N’ Roll (But I Like It)

3) Out of Control

4) Angie

5) Paint It Black

9) Gimme Shelter

10) Sympathy For The Devil

11) Brown Sugar

13) (I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction

 

The band’s performance was hailed by the audience with at least one fan saying, “Wow, never ever did I think we would see this happen.  Tonight has been a dream come true for me.”

That statement was echoed by another fan who said, “Simply fantastic – this is a moment I have been dreaming about for a really long time.  I have just witnessed the most important concert in Cuba because this is The Rolling Stones.”

Audiences can check out a trailer for the upcoming recording online now here.

flobots-logo

Flobots recently announced it has a new album on the way in the New Year and just this week, the veteran hip-hop act announced it will hit the road this fall in support of its upcoming album.

The “Your Life Matters Tour” will launch October 27th in Wichita, Kansas and currently runs through January 2nd in Aspen, Colorado. The tour is sin support of the group’s upcoming album NOENEMIES.

No release date has been announced for NOENEMIES. The album will be the group’s first full-length release since 2012’s Circle in the Square.  Flobots drummer Kenny Ortiz said the band didn’t initially expect to tour until after NOENEMIES was released but the group felt, with the nation’s current state, there was a need to get out to the public again.

“Music has the power to bring people together, ” Ortiz said. “Right now we need that more than ever. We didn’t anticipate hitting the road again nationally until NOENEMIES is released next year. But with all that ‘s happening in the country and in the world right now, there is just too much to say and too much to do to not get out there.”

More information on Flobots’ upcoming tour, its new album and latest news is available online now at:

All Hail The Yeti released the video for its latest single this week.

The band premiered the video for its latest single ‘Mr. Murder’ online this week exclusively through Music Choice. The song is taken from the band’s latest full-length studio recording Scream From a Black Wilderness. Front man Connor Garritty talked about the video, saying that while it gives fans a view of the band’s live show it also pays tribute to one of the band’s close friends, Matthew Berube.

“We are very excited to finally release the video for ‘Mr. Murder,” Garritty said. “This was shot over the last few tours compiled with live footage and tour antics while paying tribute to our brother Matthew Berube, who passed away in 2015.  it also features our dear friend Brock Lindow of 36 Crazyfists who flew out from Alaksa to join us on the Haunted and Damaged Tour to perform live and film the video. This song is very difficult for us to perform live given the subject matter, but it also brings us great happiness to immortalize our best friend. Hope you all enjoy…Hail ‘Mr. Murder’!”

All Hail The Yeti is preparing to join Max and Iggor Cavalera’s “Return to Roots Tour.”   they will join The Black Dahlia Murder, Combichrist, Allegeon, and Oni as support for the tour.  The tour launches this Sunday, Sept. 25.

Veteran punk outfit Green Day has premiered another single from its upcoming album Revolution Radio.

The band premiered ‘Still Breathing’ this week. The introspective song takes the band–Billie Joe Armstrong (guitar, vocals), Tre Cool (drums), Mike Dirnt (bass, vocals)–in a different direction than it has taken before.  That is because of the approach taken to its musical arrangement and even its lyrical content.  Audiences can hear the song now and see its lyric video online now here.

Fans can get the song now as an instant download along with the previously premiered singles ‘Bang Bang’ and ‘Revolution Radio’ when they pre-order Revolution Radio.  ‘Still Breathing’ is available for download now.

Green Day is currently touring in support of Revolution Radio.  The band is currently wrapping up the current North American leg of its tour. That leg ends October, 20 in Berkeley, CA.  After finishing the North American leg of its tour the band will take the rest of the year to rest and recharge in preparation for the European leg of its tour.  That leg begins January 10 in Turin, Italy.

Interview Options, Altered Set List Make Eagle Rock’s New Styx Live Re-Issue Stand Out

Courtesy: Eagle Rock Entertainment

Courtesy: Eagle Rock Entertainment

What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas, right?  Not so fast.  If everything that happened in Vegas stayed in Vegas then there’s no telling how many live performances held there would ever go unseen by audiences.  Thankfully Eagle Rock Entertainment has made sure throughout the years that many of those performances do get to audiences.  Earlier this month the company released yet another concert recorded in Las Vegas in the form of Styx’s new live recording Live at the Orleans Arena Las Vegas.  For fans of the veteran rock outfit there is plenty to appreciate about this re-issued recording beginning with its set list.  The band’s stage presence throughout the concert is just as important to note as the set list itself to the recording’s presentation.  The option to watch the concert both with and without interviews rounds out the concert’s most important elements.  Each element is, in itself, an important part of the recording’s presentation.  All things considered this latest live offering from Styx proves to be another recording that all of the band’s fans will appreciate.

Styx: Live at the Orleans Arena Las Vegas is not the first live Styx recording that Eagle Rock Entertainment has ever released.  The leader in live recordings, Eagle Rock Entertainment also released Grand Illusion/Pieces of Eight Live in 2011 on multiple platforms and this concert itself was originally released last summer on July 24th.  Even with this in mind, it is still a recording that Styx fans will welcome for a number of reasons.  The first of those reasons is the concert’s set list.  Audiences will note in comparing the set list presented in the concert’s new re-issue to that of the concert’s original release, there are some stark differences.  The original concert recording boasted a total of twelve songs, reaching as far back as the band’s 1973 album Styx II and as recent as 1981’s Paradise Theater.  By comparison, the concert’s new re-issue presents a total of nine songs, one of which is not included in the original recording—‘Genki Desu Ka,’ taken from the band’s 2003 album Cyclorama.  It also means that at least three of the songs included in the original recording are missing from this recording.  Why Eagle Rock went this route with the record’s re-issue is anyone guess.  It would have made more sense to present the concert in whole.  Maybe if the concert gets another re-issue, audiences will get the entire concert in one complete presentation.  That aside, the set list presented in this recording is still largely the same as that in the concert’s original recording.  It just has one addition not include in the original presentation.  Keeping that in mind, the set list still proves itself to be at least one of the recording’s positives even with it having a slightly shorter set list.  The concert’s set list is just one of its most notable elements.  The band’s stage presence throughout the performance is just as important to note as the featured set list.

The set list that is featured in Styx’s newly re-issued Live at the Orleans Arena Las Vegas concert is in itself a key piece of the concert’s presentation to note. That is because of the differences that it presents from the set list featured in the recording’s original set list.  The set list featured in this re-issue is shorter than that of the original recording’s set list by three songs.  At the same time it also features one song not included in the concert’s original set list.  Even with the differences in mind the concert’s set list is not a total loss.  If anything the differences in the set lists give hope that eventually Eagle Rock will release one more presentation of the concert whose set list is complete. After all, the third time, it’s said, is the charm.  Now keeping this in mind the band’s performance of the concert’s set list is just as important to note in this re-issue as the featured set list.  Audiences will be glad to know that they get the same stage presence here as in the concert’s original set list.  That is saying plenty, too.  The band exhibits its years of experience with the utmost confidence from beginning to end here.  Front man Tommy Shaw and guitarist James Young keep the crowd at the Orleans Arena completely entertained in their own right while drummer Todd Sucherman keeps the band moving through it all.  Keyboardist Lawrence Gowan adds his own spice to each song, too along with bassist Chuck Panozzo.  All things considered, the band in whole shows from beginning to end that thanks to its years of experience its stage presence is just as entertaining today as it was in its youth.  Considering all of this, it should be clear why the band’s stage presence is just as important here as the concert’s set list, even with the set list being shorter than that of the concert’s original presentation.  The band’s stage presence and the show’s set list are not the concert’s only key elements in its new re-issue.  That Eagle Rock gives audiences the option to watch the concert with or without the cut-in interview segments rounds out its most important elements.

The set list that is featured in Eagle Rock Entertainment’s re-issued of Styx: Live at the Orleans Arena Las Vegas and Styx’s performance of said song are both key elements in the overall presentation of the concert.  The band’s performance of the set list makes up for the fact that the set list is shortened in comparison to that of the show’s original presentation.  As important as each element is to the concert’s re-issue, they are not the concert’s only key elements.  Eagle Rock Entertainment has given audiences the option to watch the concert with or without the interview segments in the concert’s new re-issue.  This is key to note because the concert’s primary presentation includes the interviews as part of the concert’s whole.  The concert sans band interviews is included with the recording as a bonus, which is intriguing to say the least.  One would have thought that it would have been the other way around.  Regardless, the fact that Eagle Rock has offered audiences the chance to see the concert with or without the interviews in question makes the concert’s experience all the fuller.  When this is considered along with the concert’s set list and the band’s performance of said set list, all three elements join to make  Styx: Live at the Orleans Arena Las Vegas another enjoyable experience for any Styx fan that can’t get their hands on the concert’s original release.  Keeping this in mind, one can only hope that eventually Eagle Rock Entertainment will release one last take on the show and give the concert (and the band and its fans) the concert experience that they deserve from this show.  In the meantime this recording will still do for fans who can’t get the recording’s original release.

Eagle Rock Entertainment’s new re-issue of Styx: Live at the Orleans Arena Las Vegas is a good experience for audiences who haven’t or can’t get their hands on the concert’s original release, which was also released last year via Eagle Rock Entertainment.  That is due in part to the concert’s largely similar set list and the band’s performance thereof.  The ability for audiences to watch the concert with or without the additional interview segments with the band’s members rounds out the re-issue’s most important elements.  One can only hope that eventually Eagle Rock Entertainment will put the whole thing together and release the concert in whole for the band and its fans.  Until or unless that happens, this recording will still entertain audiences in its own right.  It is available now in stores and online.  More information on this recording is available online now along with all of the latest Styx news at:
