    Default More info on WASP TOUR

    W.A.S.P. To Play 'Greatest Hits' Set On AMERICAN METAL BLAST 2005 Tour - June 15, 2005

    In the annals of rock 'n' roll, few theatrical stage shows have shocked, horrified and entertained America as much as W.A.S.P.'s did on the Los Angeles-based band's 1983-84 debut tour.

    Now, W.A.S.P. is resurrecting this not-for-the-faint-of-heart spectacle of blood and gore for the first-ever American Metal Blast 2005 tour. This uncontrollable onslaught, with W.A.S.P. planning a "greatest hits" set, comes exactly two decades after the band's scandalous, meteoric rise spooked the nation to the point where it was vilified by an out-of-touch Congress and hopelessly misguided Parents' Music Resource Center (PMRC).

    Joining W.A.S.P. — vocalist/guitarist Blackie Lawless, guitarist Darrell Roberts, bass guitarist Mike Duda and drummer Stet Howland — on tour for this celebration of heavy metal are L.A. GUNS and former RATT vocalist Stephen Pearcy. METAL CHURCH will appear on select July dates. The second leg of the tour, which runs from August 18 to August 28, will feature all four bands. Complete details about the second leg are forthcoming, but Thursday, August 18 in Amarillo, TX, at Graham Central Station and Saturday, August 20 in Dallas, TX, at the Granada Theater are confirmed.

    W.A.S.P.'s most recent album is the late 2004 Sanctuary/Metal-Is Records release "The Neon God Part 2: The Demise", the second half of an intensely emotional, thought-provoking, two-part concept album. "The Neon God Part 1: The Rise" was released first by Sanctuary/Metal-Is early in 2004.

    "We are hell-bent on going out and having fun. It's like a working vacation," says Lawless. "The creation of American Metal Blast 2005 is the result of a combination of things. With 'The Neon God' tours and 'The Crimson Idol' tour back in 1992-93, we did shows where people listened with their ears and not their eyes. The general consensus among the band members was to go back where we started and do a tour utilizing our original stage show. That's the thought process that went into it.

    "This tour serves another purpose, and that is to bring our classic stage show to the younger fans. We noticed on our European tour last year that there were a lot of 17-year-olds and 18-year-olds in the audience. There are certain heritage bands out there like us that have survived. We've turned over a whole new generation of fans and they've only heard stories of what these shows are like, and they loom legendary. The visual presentation combines with the quality of the music, which stands the test of time."

    Fans will get to hear all of their W.A.S.P. favorites, and the band is more than happy to perform them.

    "It will be a giant best-of set with mostly classic material. When you start playing too much new material, it becomes self-indulgent. Any band is in direct competition with itself. Fans have 10 or 20 years or more to romance your earlier music. They are flashing back to important points in their lives that your music was the soundtrack to. You are your own worst competition. You can't imagine how many people have told me the first time they got laid they were listening to 'Animal (F**k Like a Beast)'," Lawless says. "If your newer records are really good, fans will romance them and feel the same way about them in the future too. It's important to listen to your audience. I feel blessed to be able to do this."

    Lawless is planning on American Metal Blast becoming an annual event. After this year's inaugural tour, W.A.S.P. will finalize work on songs for a new album to be recorded by the end of the year.

    I used to really like W.A.S.P. back in the day . It's still a guilty pleasure to listen to ...
    My favorite album was 'Live' . Tunes like Tormentor , Sleeping in the Fire , The Torture Never Stops , etc are all neat songs . Gotta love other stuff like Animal , Widow Maker , Sex Drive et al. too .

    It's gimmicky now , but I was right into their stage show and appearance . I thought Blackie was a genius , and really enjoyed the riffs and guitar work by Chris Holmes .
    Great memories !!!

    Default How well are you familiar with W.A.S.P. catalog?

    How many WASP albums did you listen, do you have them in your collection and how would you rate them?
    And what's your favorite?

    I've got: S/T debut, Last Command, Inside the Electric Circus, Headless Children and The Crimson idol. I think all of them but ITEC(meh to me) kick ass. Headless Children is probably my favorite.
