    Default MelodicRock.com Concert - South Bend, Indiana, October 6

    Hi folks,
    A little shameless self-promotion here - hoep a few of you might consider coming along for a great day.



    LEGENDARY ROCK ARTISTS ONSTAGE TO CELEBRATE MELODICROCK DOT COM'S 10th ANNIVERSARY

    Joe Lynn Turner (Rainbow, Deep Purple, Yngwie Malmsteen), Jack Blades and Kelly Keagy (Night Ranger), Jim Peterik and Jimi Jamison (ex-Survivor), Eric Martin (Mr. Big), Jeff Scott Soto (ex-Journey/Talisman), Mark Slaughter (Slaughter), Gunnar & Matthew Nelson (Nelson), Kevin Chalfant and Josh Ramos (The Storm) will all be on one stage for one night only at MelodicRockFest, South Bend, Indiana.
    The show takes place on October 6, 2007 at the Morris Performing Arts Center with live music beginning at 2pm. The concert will take the concept of a day-long rock festival into a fully-seated theater. Tickets are on sale now at: www.morriscenter.org

    The term, "melodic rock" describes the type of rock sound that was very popular on AOR (album oriented rock) radio stations from the late 1970s through 1990. Presented by South Bend Classic Rock radio station 95.3 WAOR, MelodicRockFest will feature a full bill of support bands, merchandise for sale and the biggest list of superstars and special guests in this genre of rock.

    MelodicRock.com is gigantic web portal and magazine that recognizes the fact that this type of music still has a large legion of loyal fans throughout the world. As Joe Lynn Turner says, "Just because the grunge movement came in and took over the airwaves in the 1990s here is the USA does not mean the fans of this type of music stopped liking it. They were just not being 'fed' this music as often by radio and video music television channels. MelodicRock.com fulfilled that need and continued to 'feed' fans with news, audio and more great features about this genre of music and the artists who continue to churn out high quality albums today."

    Turner, who has released 9 solo albums since his solo debut, "Rescue You" in 1985, credits MelodicRock.com in part with the enormous success he has continued to have since he left Deep Purple in the early 90s. The portal is run by Australian based journalist Andrew McNeice and first made its debut in the first week of January 1997. Since that time it has become one of the most respected and leading music websites in the world, taking in 27 million hits and currently services 200,000 unique users per month.
    The show headlining "house band" is Nashville based Scrap Metal, the all-star group featuring Gunnar and Matthew Nelson, Kelly Keagy, Mark Slaughter, Eric Martin, Dave Marshall (Vince Neil Band) and Gary Corbett (Lou Gramm Band/Cinderella). Turner and other rock luminaries will join Scrap Metal on stage for a special expanded headline set. Scrap Metal's regular set sees them plough through hit singles from the acts represented by the rockers - Slaughter, Nelson, Mr. Big and Night Ranger. The special expanded headlining set will also cover the classic hits from Rainbow, Deep Purple, Survivor and Damn Yankees.

    Founding member of The Ides Of March and Survivor, Jim Peterik says: “I am thrilled to be a part of the landmark AOR show of the year! All of the talent that is synonymous with what we all loved about the 80's will be there all in honor of a man who has done so much to promote that music. Everyone is charged up and ready to do their best show ever. We will give you a night you will never forget.”

    And Mr. Big vocalist Eric Martin adds: “The face of rock and roll music has changed so many times that it's hard to keep track of the adjective that comes before the word rock. Scrap Metal, the proverbial robot transformer made up of standout musicians from the 80s & 90s, brings the spirit of melodic rock & roll back from the dead. Dust off your black concert Tee's, polish off your cowboy boots and don't hurt yourself squeezing into your leather pants. Keep the dream alive & kickin' in South Bend.”

    Watch Scrap Metal in action for yourself! http://youtube.com/watch?v=Vwh0IkhYQFI

    - Canada’s Harem Scarem

    - Martie Peters Band
    - 7th Heaven
