August 24th in Vancouver, Canada, Metallica will be producing a 3-D concert film shot on a 360 degree stage. Metallica is not new to making movies as their therapy documentary, “Some Kind Of Monster” depicted the band as dysfunctional and losing their metal attitude we grew up loving. The stage for this historic concert is 140′ by 50 feet and will end their three week summer run of shows. The promoters are asking the audience to bring your “craziest Metalli-self to the show”! This video is shot in 3D so it will look weird but you will be able to see it for all its metal glory this summer!
“ROCKY GROUND” BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN
The second single from Bruce’s 2012 “Wrecking Ball” CD was just released. “Rocky Ground” is quite a departure for Bruce. His concerts have almost felt like going to church with Deacon Springsteen bringing the congregation to their feet. Well, Bruce has upped the ante here with a song featuring a gospel choir, religious imagery to describe urban breakdown, and there is RAPPING on a Springsteen song. It sounds crazy but the song is incredible and a highlight of Bruce’s current tour (I was so lucky to catch him this Spring in Tampa!)
“BOSS’S DAUGHTER” POP EVIL
First heard of Pop Evil with a song called “100 in a 55” that reminded me of Royal Bliss and Black Stone Cherry, two bands that I think should be household names soon! Michigan’s Pop Evil are back with a new single and video featuring a Playboy Playmate, Mick Mars of Motley Crue and a hard rockin’ chorus of “hell on heels” that can’t be contained. It’s pure sex and rock and roll!! I dare you not to turn this one up!
