Iron Maiden & Dream Theater - North American Summer Tour!!

March 4, 2010



New York, NY:
Prog rock/metal institution DREAM THEATER will spend their summer supporting Iron Maiden on the band’s month-long tour of major US and Canadian markets. The tour launches on June 9 and runs through July 20, and includes a stop at the storied Madison Square Garden in NYC, marking the first time in a lengthy and respected career that Dream Theater have played the world’s most famous arena.

This tour will mark another milestone in Dream Theater’s history, which continues to expand and evolve twenty-five years deep.

Of touring with Iron Maiden in North America, drummer Mike Portnoy said, “It is a bit of a dream come true for us. After 25 years together, at this stage in our career, there's honestly only three bands Dream Theater would consider opening for and Maiden is one of them. It is an absolute honor. Through the years, we've done many one-off shows with Maiden and they've almost all been overseas. It is very exciting to finally be doing a full tour with them and on our side of the pond no less. These are gonna be amazing shows that the fans won't want to miss. Up the f***ing irons!”

Playing MSG for the first time is also a huge accomplishment for the band and they are thrilled about the prospect. “Dream Theater has achieved so many dreams through the years, from playing the Budokan in Tokyo to Wembley Arena in London to Radio City Music Hall in NYC,” Portnoy recalled. “But the one remaining dream that has eluded us through all of these years was to play at Madison Square Garden. Well, on July 12, along with Iron Maiden, that dream will finally be fulfilled.”

Guitarist John Petrucci was equally stoked about the MSG play, saying, “I am unbelievably excited to be finally playing Madison Square Garden, and with the almighty Maiden to boot! They have been heroes to the band since the beginning and are iconic in our eyes. There is nothing like achieving success and recognition in your own country, in your own city. It's going to be an incredible night for sure.”

Portnoy has proof of this career-long dream, saying, “About a month ago my family and I were watching a video of my first band Intruder from back in 1983, and in the video before the show, I was interviewed and asked what my dream goal was. I responded ‘to play the Garden.’It took almost 30 years, but it’s surreal that I will now be able to check it off the list.”

Dream Theater’s Black Clouds & Silver Linings was released in 2009 and debuted at #6 on the Billboard Top 200 Sales chart.

Wed June 9th - Dallas, TX - Center

Rob Zombie Directs Miami

Most people hear the name Rob Zombie and think of the long-haired spooktacular metalhead that has been making music for over a decade.  He went from the frontman of White Zombie to doing his thing on his own without losing any ground and gave us hits such as "Dragula", "Living Dead Girl", and his latest "Sick Bubblegum" from his latest album Hellbilly Deluxe 2.  But those of us in the rock and metal scene know that there is more to Zombie than music; that being directing.

Monday night Zombie made his TV directorial debut with CSI: Miami on CBS.  Truth be told, the average viewer watching Monday night's episode would have thought that Zombie only directed the opening scene because it was an over the top party with a band performing Zombie's song "Virgin Witch".  And the rest of the episode, to the average viewer, was your typical episode.  Chock full of close-ups as they tried to get a confession from the suspect and effects galore in the scientific investigation scenes.

But you see this was not his first dip into the directing pool.  Prior to this Zombie has directed 4 full-length movies, 1 animated movie, and the music video "Dreamer" for metal legend Ozzy Osbourne seen here.

 It is obvious from that video, his directorial debut, that Zombie knows a thing or two about directing.  The only reason why he isn't known for his directing as equally as he is for his music is because the 4 movies he has directed (House of 1000 Corpses, The Devil's Rejects, Halloween 2007, Halloween II 2009) are all horror movies.  But what makes them stand-out to me, and not many others, is that he takes the old school route of showing the gore and blood as opposed to the new school version for the squeemish of hearing the violence and seeing nothing.  It's that style of old school ways along with a few new tricks and key casting that makes Zombie's directing unique in this episode..

With all that said the following is a bit of a spoiler for the episode, so if you have not watched it yet and want to do stop reading here until you have watched it, otherwise read on.

The first thing that you can note as a mark of Zombie's touch as a director is in the murder scene which opens the episode.  He had an old black and white silent vampire movie running on a screen in the background.  To someone not knowing his work this is no big deal, but to those who know his style know that this was to help create the right mood.  It added a "creepy" factor to the scene that made the attempted rape followed by murder and in a way lowered the shock value because subconsciously you were ready for it.

He then threw his touch into the cast by bringing in William Forsythe from The Devil's Rejects to play an LAPD Captain who had screwed up a past case in order to try to do the right thing.  A perfect choice considering Forsythe's character in The Devil's Rejects, Sheriff John Quincey Wydell, had a similar role.  A cop trying SO hard to do the right thing that he took the wrong turn and got burned in the end.  In addition to that he brought in Malcolm McDowell who played Dr. Loomis in his version of Halloween to play a lawyer who would do anything to win a case and become known.  This was perfect casting because both the lawyer and Dr. Loomis are characters that are egotistical bastards and require a strong person in order to come across right.  McDowell's look and ability for making a sarcastic remark sound factual made him the right choice for the role.

So some may say big deal that Zombie directed CSI: Miami, it was just another episode.  To them I say watch more carefully.  For you see he found his own ways of putting his touch into a show that's formulaic in the way scenes are shot.  And that my friends shows true talent as a director.
