Fact: the most engaging, most electric artists will always generate the most visceral reaction. Loved, hated, ridiculed, admired, Falling In Reverse frontman Ronnie Radke is the rare rock n’ roll provocateur whose unpolished unpredictability and reckless honesty make him equal parts hero and villain, depending on whom you ask. Radke puts it all on the line, take it or leave it, each and every time Falling In Reverse does anything. Just Like You finds Falling In Reverse’s leader with no shortage of material to sing, scream and howl about. In the roughly two years since Fashionably Late, Radke lost a close family member (faced head-on with the tear-jerking album closing ballad ‘Brother’), watched old friends succumb to old vices (look no further than the first track ‘Chemical Prisoner’), and struggled with his lifelong search for meaning (‘God, If You Are Above…’ is as real as it gets, kids) and search for personal redemption. Just as Pinocchio became a real boy, Falling In Reverse is a real band. Emerging guitar hero Jacky Vincent throws down a vicious, Joe Satriani-inspired shred all over their songs; rhythm guitarist Derek Jones injects the band with the strength of crunch that only comes from touring as a metalcore vet. Jovial everyman drummer Ryan Seaman, whose resume reads like an Epitaph catalog, lays back in the cut like the guys in classic hard rock bands of the ‘70s yet pulls off double bass and crazy fills with equal skill. ‘God, If You Are Above’ rocketed to #1 on the iTunes Rock chart within hours of its release and with good reason. It’s got an energized, emotive drive reminiscent of ‘Situations’ (the best known song from Radke’s tenure in Escape The Fate which has been viewed 50 million times on YouTube) but updated with the experience, charisma and perspective of the singer’s more well rounded modern persona; the song is naturally topped off by a reliably scorching Jacky Vincent solo. The playful innuendo is still there, in party songs like ‘Sexy Drug’ and the album’s title track, ‘Just Like You,’ with it’s over-the-top, hilariously brave refrain: “I am aware that I am an asshole!” Falling In Reverse’s debut album The Drug In Me Is You was a vivid, self-deprecating, raw document of frontman Radke’s turbocharged life till that point, delivered with a clever wordplay acting as harbinger for the mixtape rhymes that were to come. Now, the appropriately titled Just Like You draws together all of the first two albums strengths. In 2014, only Motörhead legend Lemmy edged out Radke on Kerrang!’s list of the 50 Greatest Living Rockstars in the World, a lineup that included the likes of Slash, Steven Tyler and Ozzy Osbourne. Ronnie Radke is the world’s Greatest Living Rockstar, aside from freakin’ Lemmy, according to the UK’s biggest rock mag. Radke’s aesthetic is so coveted he spends significant “free time” overseeing clothing design and fulfillment for HOOD$ UP, the Falling In Reverse frontman’s apparel endeavor. Self-empowerment, secret societies and a bizarre amalgamation of esotericism and West Coast gangsterism collide in HOOD$ UP, that transcends “brand” as much as the guys in Falling In Reverse have managed to agitate and captivate more than a “band.” As unscrupulous imitators play catch-up with the look, sound and feel of Falling In Reverse, the band soldiers on, blazing new pathways and bridging the gap between brutal metal and pop rock.

Bruce Dickinson is considered one of the world’s most storied musicians. Aside from decades spent delivering high-octane performances with his larger-than-life persona in IRON MAIDEN, Bruce has lived an extraordinary off-stage existence too.
A true polymath, his accomplishments include: pilot and airline captain, aviation entrepreneur, beer brewer, motivational speaker, podcaster, film scriptwriter, twice-published novelist and New York Times Top 10 best-selling author, radio presenter, TV actor, sports commentator and international fencer… to name but a few.
So, there’s plenty to be entertained by, throughout the evening’s cornucopia of fascinating tales and derring-do exploits, all delivered by Bruce with characteristically infectious enthusiasm and wry wit.
Split into two parts, the first section of the show sees Bruce taking a humorous and often satirical look at the world from his own very personal perspective, treating the audience to private insights into his drive and ambition, peppered with plenty of Maiden anecdotes, and a myriad of other experiences encompassing not just the giddy heights but also the extreme lows, told first-hand in his inimitable anarchic style, punctuated with photographs and sometimes even erupting into song a-capella, to illustrate a point.
The final section of the evening is devoted entirely to a Q&A session, with the opportunity to pose questions on any subject whatsoever. As Bruce’s answers will all be completely improvised – the more left-field and quirky the question, the more interesting and compelling the response is likely to be!
Don’t miss out on this unique opportunity to spend an up-close and personal evening with one of the world’s most captivating icons in an intimate environment, as Bruce Dickinson brings his Evening With show to the U.S. for the very first time, where you are guaranteed a highly entertaining and enjoyable night out and may even go home inspired to try something new.

Jack White has announced the first dates of The Supply Chain Issues Tour, including a stop at Starlight Theatre Monday, August 29, 2022.
One of the most admired guitarists of the early 21st century, Jack White helped restore the popularity of punk-blues as the front man of the White Stripes. Although White’s nasal voice and loose, fiery guitar delivery were mainstays of the White Stripes’ early work, the group branched out as its reputation grew, building upon an initially minimalist sound with elements of metal, backwoods country, pop, and early rock & roll. White followed a similar evolution in his own career, and by the time the White Stripes celebrated the tenth anniversary of their debut album, the front man had already issued two pop-oriented records with the Raconteurs, starred in several films, collaborated with Electric Six, duetted with Alicia Keys, and produced records for a number of artists.
The Supply Chain Issues Tour will celebrate the upcoming release of two brand new Jack White albums: “FEAR OF THE DAWN” and “ENTERING HEAVEN ALIVE.” “FEAR OF THE DAWN” was first heralded by “Taking Me Back,” hailed by PASTE as “a return to White’s sweet spot” and joined by an official music video – directed by Jack White and co-directed by Lauren Dunn (Megan Thee Stallion, Kali Uchis) – streaming now on Jack White’s YouTube channel.
