In the ‘does anybody really care’ department, comes news that Warrant have now pulled out of the ‘Metal Health 2011’ Australian tour where they were meant to headline after Quiet Riot announced their drop off of the tour. The promoter, Intense Impact states, “It is with much regret that we announce that Warrant are not budging and refusing to honour our contracted and booked tour?! Warrant, along with Quiet Riot, are also refusing to return their performance fee deposits we paid them in advance + return the costs of their airline tickets that once we cancel are non-refundable. Intense Impact has exhausted every avenue. There is no reasoning with unreasonable ego’s. A replacement band will be announced within 24 hours. Any angry and upset Warrant and Quiet Riot fans please direct your comments to Warrant and Quiet Riot websites and understand we have done all we possibly can above and beyond the call of duty to honour not just the bands, but you fans as well.”. Yawn. How can you have QR without Dubrow anyhow? Or Warrant without Janie Lane ? Hats off to the promoter for putting their money into a tour like that but a big thumbs down to both Banali and Warrant. You cats should be thankful that some people want to pay to see your counterfeit, fourth gen. copy bands in 2011. Check the calander (and the hair line), it ain’t 1991 no more dude! Anyway, Phil Lewis, the perennial stalwart has come through, with LA Guns now headlining a revised and renamed tour called ‘SEX ACTION 2011 (Formerly Metal Health 2011)’. If I get a ticket for 10 bucks, I may consider it.
