Are you part of The Revolution??

 

 

Fresh from delivering the very best festival lineup ever seen on this large red land girt by sea, the diligent lads and lasses at Soundwave have found a way to top even that Iron Maiden-fronted spectacular.

 

Soundwave Revolution have been dropping teasers for a couple of months now, and last night finally unveiled the full lineup, complete with the amazing one-two punch of headliners VAN HALEN and ALICE COOPER.

 

Alice has been touring his “Carnival of Death” show and has a sequel to his mega selling 1975 album “Welcome To My Nightmare” coming out soon. Van Halen reunited with original singer David Lee Roth in 2009 and are also rumoured to have a new studio album on the way. See below for the set list from the last few Van Halen shows – all killer no filler!

 

Hard to believe that we Aussies will see not one but TWO legends on the same day – along with a veritable pandora’s box of amazing music in support.

 

Courtney Love’s Hole (which sounds wrong any which way you word it), progressive metallers Machine Head and Devin Townsend, the goth Elvis Danzig, Sisters Of Mercy, US punk legends Bad Religion and Cro-Mags, radio friendly rockers Alterbridge, hair metal parodists Steel Panther, the new name in sleaze Black Veil Brides, Hell Yeah and many more are set to blow the doors off the joint in September and October.

 

Soundwave Revolution 2011:


Brisbane Revolution – Saturday 24th September
Sydney Revolution – Sunday 25th September
Melbourne Revolution – Friday 30th September
Adelaide Revolution – Saturday 1st October
Perth Revolution – Monday 3rd October
