Rock music heavyweights, though quite slim to look at, Cell Block 69, have not hit Australian shores since their last visit here. So it’s with cautiously anticipatory joy that they return for just two shows. That’s right kids, Cell Block 69 are bringing their renowned Stadium Spectacular to the Hopetoun Hotel Arena, Sydney and the ANU Stadium/Bar, Canberry this festive season. Featuring all of their most memorable hits, mostly made famous by other so called “artists”, this will be one show not to be missed.
Rumor and speculation of the forthcoming tour have been floating around usenet bulletin boards for the last few months with many of the tech-savvy fans shitting themselves with excitement, some up to three or four times. Additional rockers, Corey Spelling (co-lead axe), Corey in te Domine Corey Exultate Corey (bass axe) and the pastel tonsils of Corey Chameleon (rythym vox) join Duanne LeCorey-Michaels (lead vox), Corey Axelrod (rythym axe and occasional rythym synthesizers), Corey Van Coverdale (co-lead axe), The Corey Formerly Known As Korey (lead synthesizers), Corey Rokk-Sixx (lead and rythym drums) and Corea Chick (rythym vox). Critics are hailing the new line-up as great, really, really great with one music industry commentator saying, “great. really, really great”. With the nineties fast approaching, this may be the last chance to see Cell Block 69 in their heyday or it may not, only time will tell although watches tell time so they might know as well. I’m not sure. I’m not a scientist but I’ve got great rippled abs to die for. When asked why they keep returning to Australia, a rock spokesperson responded, “You are!”, which was kind of confusing and seemed a little immature.
Australians audiences are in for an extra special rock treat this summer as White Leather, the all-girl hair metal dream trio of singer and mental multi-instrumentalist Evol, fret-burning shredder K-Ax and goddess of the drums J.Stix join Cell Block 69 as special guests.
Don’t miss your chance to see the rock greatness of CELL BLOCK 69s Stadium Spectacular with special guests White Leather.
