7huu_ChicagoIGRAMMSTEINv2_1

(PCM) Chicago Open Air has announced Rammstein as one of the headlining acts for the 3-day music, craft beer and Gourmet Man Food festival held July 15, 16 and 17 at Toyota Park in Bridgeview, IL, just outside Chicago. This marks Rammstein’s only 2016 U.S. performance and first Chicago show since 2012. Additional festival headliners will be announced on February 16.

Chicago Open Air will feature performances by over 40 bands, an outdoor Gourmet Man Food selection incorporating local and regional cuisine, a craft beer village highlighting top brews from the region, and other entertainment and fan experiences.

Discounted Early Bird General Admission 3-day weekend tickets are available for purchase now at www.ChicagoOpenAir.com.

Rammstein are known for their explosive and creative live performances with spectacular lighting. In the course of two decades, the German rock band have risen to the apex of the great rock pyramid, achieving album and DVD sales in the millions, headlining major festivals and bigger venues around the world (including New York’s Madison Square Garden, a show that sold out its 18,200 tickets in under 30 minutes!), and establishing themselves as peerless master showmen with an approach to their art – and ‘art’ is the word – that is dramatic, epic in scale and capable of touching all of the senses; a dark and spectacular fairy-tale laced with controversy and don’t-try-this-at-home theatrics.

“Rammstein is an act that is headlining major festivals all over the world,” says Chicago Open Air producer Danny Wimmer. “I’ve been trying to get Rammstein here for years and I couldn’t be more ecstatic to launch Chicago Open Air with them. If you’ve never seen Rammstein LIVE before, you are in for a real treat.”

Look for the full list of Chicago Open Air music, craft beer and artist-inspired beverages, as well as the Gourmet Man Food lineup to be revealed Tuesday, February 16 at 5:00 PM Central Time at www.ChicagoOpenAir.com.

A limited quantity of Early Bird discounted 3-Day Weekend General Admission tickets are now available for $199.50 (Field) and $109.50 (Bowl). Once those are sold out, GA 3-Day Weekend tickets will be $219.50 (Field) and $119.50 (Bowl) while supplies last, with prices increasing as allotments sell out.

VIP 3-Day Weekend tickets are available starting at $399.50. A limited number of 3-Day Weekend Zippo VIP Ticket 2-Packs are also available for $860.00. This package includes 2 VIP tickets plus 2 commemorative Zippo lighters.

All VIP tickets include: VIP entrance lanes into the event, access to a VIP lounge area featuring dedicated food and beverage offerings (for additional purchase), field and stadium level viewing areas of the main stage, dedicated restroom facilities, and a commemorative Chicago Open Air VIP-only laminate.

Single day General Admission Bowl tickets go on sale Tuesday, February 16 at 5:00 PM CT and prices start at $49.50 (plus fees).

Ticket prices will increase in the coming weeks, so fans are encouraged to buy early and save.

Chicago Open Air is produced by Danny Wimmer Presents, Live Nation and Toyota Park, with the support of the Village of Bridgeview and Bridgeview Mayor Steven Landek.

Festival doors open at 11:00 AM each day and the show ends at 11:30 PM on Friday, 11:00 PM on Saturday, and 10:00 PM on Sunday.

Disturbed And Rob Zombie Announce Co-Headline Tour

Disturbed Rob-Zombie

(PCM) Rock titans Disturbed and Rob Zombie have announced a co-headline tour for May 2016. Ahead of that, Disturbed are gearing up to kick off their first tour following their 4-year hiatus, starting in the U.S. in Fargo, ND on February 10 and taking them on an almost entirely sold out run through North America to headlining slots at major festivals across the U.S., U.K., and Europe. Tickets for the Disturbed and Rob Zombie tour officially go on sale Friday, January 22. Exclusive Disturbed meet & greet and VIP ticket packages will be available. Visit Ticketmaster for details, and head to Disturbed1.com for more info and tickets for all upcoming Disturbed dates.

Following the news of the release of Rob Zombie’s sixth solo studio album the creative visionary will be hitting the road this May in support of his upcoming full length, The Electric Warlock Acid Witch Satanic Orgy Celebration Dispenser, out April 29 via UMe/T-Boy Records.

The Electric Warlock… marks Rob Zombie’s first solo studio album since 2013’s Venomous Rat Regeneration Vendor, which debuted at number 7 on the Billboard 200. Produced by Zeuss and recorded at Goathouse studios, this new record is a full return to form by Zombie. The album features John 5 (Guitar), Piggy D (Bass) and Ginger Fish (Drums) with provocative art provided by Alex Horley. To celebrate the release of the album, Zombie has made a direct-to-fan presale available on F**kinginaUFO.com where fans can pre-order the new record and collectible merchandise, as well as purchase exclusive tickets and VIP Meet & Greet bundles for the new tour and a chance to be in The Electric Warlock Acid Witch Satanic Orgy Celebration Dispenser movie.

Disturbed is touring in support of their massive #1 album Immortalized, which marked the end of the Grammy-nominated group’s 4-year hiatus and became their fifth consecutive album to debut at #1 on the Billboard Top 200, a rare feat achieve by only one other hard rock band in the history of the chart: Metallica. The album has already boasted two huge No. 1 Active Rock singles in “The Vengeful One” and “The Light,” and now the group’s haunting version of Simon & Garfunkel’s classic “The Sound of Silence” is poised to continue the dominance. The track, which Yahoo! describes as “incredible” and “striking,” is already climbing the charts and has now earned over 7 million YouTube views in just a few short weeks.

As a rock legend and filmmaker with a unique vision, Rob Zombie has continuously challenged audiences as he stretches the boundaries of both music and film. His seventh feature film, the highly anticipated 31, will be making its world premiere this month at Sundance Film Festival. Last year he also released his first live album in over eight years, SPOOKSHOW INTERNATIONAL LIVE, which is filled with nineteen tracks from the highlights of Rob’s critically acclaimed US tour of 2014.

Saturnalia: December 17th – December 23rd

Confident God

 

(PCM) In ancient Rome, the period between December 17th and December 23rd was known as the Saturnalia, a festival to honor the god Saturn.

Saturn ruled over such things as abundance, destruction, and time. He gave his name to our largest planet as well as everyone’s favorite day of the week (Saturday). His celebration began with a ritual sacrifice in his Temple at the Roman Forum, followed by a week of banquets, gift-giving, candles and lights, and general revelry. Elements of Saturnalia, including its timing (around the Winter Solstice) are said to have influenced many modern holidays, including Christmas.

According to Roman custom, schools were closed, wars were suspended, and no business could be conducted during Saturnalia. If you need some time off this week (or just want a head start on your holidays), why not start spreading the Saturn love now? Grab a toga, a cup of wine, and call your boss to tell him you’re doing as the Roman’s do!

Saturnalia: December 17th – December 23rd was contributed by Pop Culture Fun Facts.
