Testament/Anthrax Tour

They’re coming around again.  They loved the first part of this tour so they are continuing into the new year.  The tour begins on January 22 in Las Vegas and will continue for three weeks with Death Angel being the main support.

Anthraxs Scott Ian said “The first leg of the tour with Testament and Death Angel was an amazing way to end a great year for Anthrax and it went above and beyond my expectations! Sold out shows, raging crowds and EPIC war dances! So we figured what better way to start 2012 than to continue this thrash-fest into the new year!!! Thank you all for giving us this privilege to come and play for you. See you soon!”

Dee Snider’s Broadway Classics Album

Ya I thought WTF also! Dee Snider announced that he’s making an album of Broadway standards titled “Dee Does Broadway” that will be released in September. Currently Dee is in the Broadway show “Rock of Ages” that started back in 2010 and will roll through the US until July 24th.

Dee told MTV news about his Broadway shows:

“The biggest difference between a concert situation and a theater situation is that you can’t curse out the audience. I’m used to addressing situations. If something is going on in the house that I don’t like at a concert, or if the audience is not energized or enthusiastic … or if they’re particularly energized and enthusiastic … I will stop a song just to comment on what’s going on. I quickly realized that was unacceptable on Broadway. I just have to stay in character and stay in the show.”
