Riot Fest Announce Bigger Tenth Anniversary News

With the insane line-up that has already been revealed for all three Riot Fests, now comes word that things will get even more awesome in September;  ten of the band will perform their classic albums, in full.

Earlier this week when The Offspring had been rumored to be performing at the weekend-long festivals, which had later been confirmed as true, the band revealed they would be playing their hit album, Smash in full.

The other bands that will be doing the same can been seen below:

Weezer—The Blue Album

Jane’s Addiction—Nothing’s Shocking

The Descendents—Milo Goes to College

The Get Up Kids—Something to Write Home About

Slayer—Reign in Blood

The Offspring—Smash (we already knew)

NOFX—Punk in Drublic

Samhain—Initium

Naked Raygun—Throb Throb

If you counted over the list, you would notice that one band is missing, and no, it wasn’t a typo. Festival organizers are currently keeping that last one underwraps.

In a press release they stated, “[we] have promised to unveil it in a separate announcement in the upcoming weeks, as well as additional 10th anniversary surprise.”

We are beginning to get the feeling it might be The Cure performing Disintegration or another one of their hit albums in full.

Riot Fest Toronto will take place on September 6-7, Chicago will take place September 12-14 and Denver will take place September 19-21, so get your tickets now before they sell out.

Riot Fest Announces Line-ups For All Three Editions

riotfest

After waiting for what felt like ages to see who would be performing at all three Riot Fests, the festival organizers have revealed all the acts that will be taking the stage at the three different incarnations of it.

The line-ups are proving to be a who’s-who in the rock genre with acts like The Cure, Jane’s Addition, the National, Weezer, Social Distortion, Slayer and The Offspring which we assumed would be true following the reveal of all their upcoming tour dates in support of the 20th anniversary of their album, Smash.

Chicago, which leads the pack with the most artists will take place at Humboldt Park during the weekend of September 12-14. 

The Denver edition of the festival which will take place at May Farm in Byers, CO during the weekend of September 19-21 will also feature some of the same artists as the Chicago version, but not as extensive as the parent festival.

As for Toronto, The National, City and Colour, Rise Against and Billy Talent had already been confirmed, but now the full line-up for that show which will take place at Downsview Park on September 6 and 7 including a last-minute addition of The Cure to the list.

If you’re drooling over the complete line-ups, then don’t bother reading anymore and just head on over to the festival’s official site and get your tickets because we can guarantee you that they will be sold out soon, but if you want to continue down to the line-up lists, please do.

Carrie Underwood Joins the Rolling Stones for ‘It’s Only Rock n’ Roll’

Rolling Stones

During their tour stop at Toronto’s  Air Canada Centre last weekend, The Rollings Stones brought a special surprise to the stage while they performed their 1974 track, “It’s Only Rock n’ Roll (But I Like It).”

Everything was going as planned with singer Mick Jagger crooning out the song when right before the chorus was to kick in,  the American Idol alum came on stage to join the aging rock stars on stage. While it was all about Jagger and the boys, Underwood was able to keep her own by getting to sing a little bit of a solo, but don’t take our word on it.

Watch the full video below:

The Rolling Stones are currently on their much anticipated “50 and Counting” tour.
