Here we are again, another mis-mash of words, letters, commas, and periods, that i like to call a show review…when this KINGS OF CHAOS show was announced i was very excited to be able to see how these guys would sound. really! who am i kidding? with BILLY GIBBONS along for the ride, you could put WILLIAM HUNG & MIKE POSNER on that stage and it’d be bad ass!
not only was BILLY there, but COREY TAYLOR (SLIPKNOT/STONESOUR) & CHESTER BENNINGTON (LINKIN PARK) were there sharing vocal duties. also on stage was guitarist BILLY DUFFY (THE CULT), bassist ROBERT DeLEO (STONE TEMPLE PILOTS), guitarist STEVE STEVENS (BILLY IDOL) & drummer/mastermind MATT SORUM (GUNS N ROSES/VELVET REVOLVER), rounded out the all star line up.
with musicians of this caliber, youd expect that this show would be flawless, and it was….they played hit after hit after hit…non stop! i knew & sang every single word of these songs, loudly…just ask the guy in front of me that was getting pissed that i was singing in his ear all night.
if you werent able to see this line up during their short residency in VEGAS, too bad cause it wont be this line up on the east coast run of shows…..no. COREY TAYLOR wont be there. instead ROBIN ZANDER of CHEAP TRICK will be on those run of shows.
enough of my rambling, check out our pics from the shows and then click here to buy your tickets NOW!
