Warrant with Special Guests Firehouse and L.A.GunsFriday, March 30, 2012
Warrant, Firehouse and L.A. Guns all on one night at Penn’s Peak!!
Warrant, known for its heavy melodic rock anthems and sentimental ballads, has endured for the past 20 years. They kept that style of music known as the “Sunset Strip” glam metal band as their signature sound for all these years. Formed in 1984, they gained notoriety on the LA club scene, but it wasn’t until 1988 and their debut album, Dirty Rotten Filthy Stinking Rich that they truly became known. This album was a huge success spawning 3 hits, “Heaven,” “Sometimes She Cries” and “Down Boys.” Warrant’s second album, Cherry Pie, released in 1990, also spawned 3 huge hits with “Cherry Pie,” “Uncle Tom’s Cabin” and “I Saw Red.” Cherry Pie reached the Top 10 and sold 3 million copies. “Cherry Pie” became Warrant’s most successful single and received strong exposure on MTV.
During the 90’s Warrant went through a series of changes to the band’s line up. They released a few albums and toured a little, but they were unable to get a solid line up until 2004. The current lineup consists of Erik Turner, Jerry Dixon, Steven Sweet, Joey Allen and Robert Mason of Lynch Mob as the new lead vocalist. Warrant was featured in the Rock Never Stops Tour in 1998 and 2003. Their latest release, Rockaholic, peaked at #22 on the Billboard Top Hard Rock Albums chart.
FireHouse released their first album, FireHouse, in 1990 and the success kept on coming. The album featured their first two Top 10 hits which garnered FireHouse their first double platinum status in the US and gold in Canada, Japan and Singapore. One of their signature ballads, “Love of a Lifetime”, is the number one wedding song. At the 1991 American Music Awards, FireHouse beat out Nirvana and Alice in Chains for the award Best New Hard Rock/Metal Band. Fortunately for them, their success did not end there. Their subsequent two albums both produced Top 10 and Top 40 hits, while their fourth album went gold in Malaysia, Thailand and the Philippines. They were extremely popular in Asia – so much that they embarked on their first concert tour in 1997 in SE Asia and played sold out shows. They returned to SE Asia later that year for an unprecedented 25 city sold out tour of Indonesia. Their 5th album was released in 1998 and it quickly climbed to #4 on the Japanese chart. Their latest release is 2011’s Full Circle.
L.A. Guns has weathered many member changes over the past fifteen plus years, but they were born again with their 2001 release, Man in The Moon. They began in 1988 and have not stopped touring and producing albums since. Part of the reason they feel born again was because Phil Lewis, the original frontman, returned to their lineup for Man in The Moon after a 7 year absence. Waking The Dead, their 2002 release, propelled them into a heavier, more musically challenging realm. In August of 2005, L.A. Guns released Tales From The Strip. This album was met with critical acclaim and hailed as the best L.A. Guns album in years. In 2011, Scott Griffin, bass, returned to the band. Now, the “bookends” (Scott and Stacey) and the rest of the boys are ready to tear up the stage with their high octane rock and roll!
It’s a triple threat at Penn’s Peak….don’t miss this night of heavy metal/glam rock!!
