Tour News



Foxy Shazam, the genre-bending musical merry-makers behind the critically acclaimed album The Church of Rock and Roll, have been chosen to join Slash on tour. The former Guns N’ Roses guitarist is taking out Foxy for a string of high-profile North American dates running from September 4 to October 4, culminating at the legendary Wiltern Theatre in Los Angeles.  Tour dates are listed below.

Before hitting the road with Slash, Foxy Shazam releases “Holy Touch”, today via VEVO: the provocative  follow-up video to the epic, cinematic, Tommy-meets-Tarantino clip for “I Like It.” Award-winning director/cinematographer Shane Valdes (who directed Matthew McConaughey as his Dazed and Confused character in Butch Walker’s “Synthesizers” video) helmed the highly anticipated video for “Holy Touch.”

Additionally, more than 160 countries tuned in and turned on to Foxy Shazam when they played the SPIKE TV Guy’s Choice Awards as the house band. Airing June 9, the event saw Foxy sharing the stage with such big-name guys as Mark Wahlberg, Christian Bale, Adam Sandler, Kobe Bryant and Ray Liotta. Fans can also keep a look out for the bands involvement with DETAILS magazine, coming soon.

To date, The Church of Rock and Roll reached #2 on Billboard’s Top Heatseekers charts, and is garnering rave reviews.  Huffington Post called The Church of Rock and Roll (released January 24, 2012 via I.R.S. Records) an album that “effectively promises to redefine music entirely. And honestly, it does just that.” while Guitar World opined: “It’s a catchy, high-energy neo-glam”.

She may be a bona-fide hippie chick (just check out the long, free-loving head of hair on her son Ryders head), but Kate Hudson isnt afraid to rock the designer apparel. Replica Chanel, if you want to go incognito and hide from the paps, its probably not a great idea to wear a multicolored clown wig. The big sale launches tomorrow, September 9th and the selection of designer bags, shoes and accessories include brands like Gucci, Prada, Armani, Chanel, Louis Vuitton and many more. For chanel 2.55 bags, Fall 2012 is all about gemstones in their raw state. After all, its hard to look cheap when youve got one of those beauties hanging from your shoulder. For those of you who were disappointed that Chanels Fall 2012 runway show only featured a couple of handbag styles, fret not. The black distressed lambskin and gobs of hardware add an edge to a day look, and looks perfectly appropriate at night. This might be the largest version of the quilted flap weve ever seen, in a rendition that is as intriguing as it is odd. Though mixing luxury handbags with casual clothes can sometimes have mixed results chanel evening bags, I think Christinas look works on an Olsen-like low-key-but-methodically-so level. Though you dont often see a luxe Chanel handbag paired with a casual baggy tee, I actually like the look. This Chanel bag will bring a smile and an intense sense of yearning to everyone who sets their eyes on it. If youre into fashion on a hardcore level, season ready-to-wear will also be marked down, including cardigans and timeless Chanel suits.
