Quiet Riot & Blackfoot

QUIET RIOT featuring American Idol finalist James Durbin with special guests...BLACKFOOT! Two of the hardest-rockin' bands in the biz...return to The Arcada TOGETHER...on one nite! Rickey Medlocke of Lynyrd Skynyrd started Blackfoot in Sothern Florida back in 1970 with a few smash hits and the band has been Southern-rockin' it ever since! Heavy Metal pioneers Quiet Riot are riding high with their hit documentary and a new album, and their biggest hits, "Cum On Feel The Noise" and "Bang Your Head (Metal Health)" are two of the biggest Rock Anthems in the history of Metal, including being featured in the musical "Rock of Ages" and Guitar Heroes. The band's album "Metal Health" was the the first Heavy Metal album to hit Number one on the Billboard Charts! American Idol Season Ten finalist James Durbin recently joined the band as its lead vocalist. This is the REAL DEAL! ...

Accept

The band delivers more than just a musical statement with »The Rise Of Chaos«, in this case it’s a clear announcement! - with the straight forward opening track 'Die By The Sword': Galloping drums, lightning guitars and ACCEPT’s trademark choir instantly silence any doubt as to whether they’re still the top dog when it comes to top-notch Teutonic metal. Second track 'Hole In The Head' leaves no time to breathe, before the title track kick-starts and tries to pummel its way through the listener’s ear canal. This song may evoke a sense of familiarity within listeners, because it was previously released with an impressive music video. After consuming the upcoming 'Koolaid' shake, 'No Regrets' keeps heads banging with its speedy guitar solos, which concludes the 1st half of the record. 'Analog Man' rings in the 2nd part, telling the story of the world increasing digitization: Its haunting (pre) chorus should undoubtedly confirm its place in forthcoming ACCEPT set lists. Track number 8, 'Worlds Colliding', marks the album’s most thoughtful song, swiftly followed by the fastest banger of »The Rise Of Chaos«, 'Carry The Weight'. After 45 minutes, the closer, 'Race To Extinction', lets the record fade out fittingly ...

Dennis Quaid & The Sharks

In his spar time, Quaid writes songs and performs with his band The Sharks. But make no mistake, the bands has long been performing to rave review, and Quaid is not just another actor turned rocker – he’s a bonafide rock star. Quaid said the shows are as much fun for those in attendance as they are for the band. “(The audiences) have a blast, which is all we want,” he said. “I make a complete and utter fool of myself. I think that’s the only way to have fun (onstage), instead of trying to pretend to be cool and all the rest of that stuff.” ...

Beatolution tribute to The Beatles

What began as four grammar school prodigies who formed the band STOCKWOOD has evolved into BEATLOUTION, an incredible all-live musical tribute to the Fab-Four.

Every performance results in multiple standing ovations, and welcomes life-long Beatles’ fans as dedicated BEATOLUTION fans! Newsweek saw fit to include the band (as STOCKWOOD) in their Spring, 2012 Edition, Commemorative Issue of THE BEATLES.
