Big Night Out 2011

17 Feb

Comedy’s New Rock Star SUGAR SAMMY is set to host BIG NIGHT OUT Singapore 2011! The Hollywood Reporter just named him one of the top 10 rising comedy talents from around the world, and Askmen.com dubbed him “Comedy’s New Rock Star”.

Attention Rockers! Grammy winning hard rock band STONE TEMPLE PILOTS are headed to Singapore for the 3rd Annual BIG NIGHT OUT on March 11, 2011 at Singapore Indoor Stadium! Support acts include I AM GIANT and more to be announced.

Stone Temple Pilots

Since the moment they appeared on the scene in the early 90’s, Stone Temple Pilots dominated the decade from start to finish, racking up 15 singles on the Billboard Top Ten, winning a “Best Hard Rock Performance” GRAMMY in 1994 for for “Plush,” and having their five albums sell more than 35 million copies worldwide.

Of all their peers, STP alone had sustained commercial success, earning greater critical acclaim with each release, building a body of work that remains popular and its enduring acclaim has only highlighted the absence of the band, who quietly went their separate ways after the turn-of the millennium release of Shangri-La Dee Da. Despite the presence of the greatest hits album Thank You in 2003, there was a generation that has never witnessed the live power of the vocalist Scott Weiland, guitarist Dean DeLeo,bassist Robert DeLeo and drummer Eric Kretz live in concert. That all changed when the band reunited for a massive concert tour in 2008.

Attention Rockers! Hard Rock Guitar legend SLASH featuring Myles Kennedy is headed back to Singapore for the 3rd Annual BIG NIGHT OUT on March 12, 2011 at Singapore Indoor Stadium! Support acts include British heavy metal legends SAXON and Australian rock band TWENTY TWO HUNDRED.

Few artists in rock ‘n’ roll can carry off a single name, and carry it with gravitas. That is except Slash. And few guitarists command as much respect as Slash. So when he started making calls to his all-star wish list of singers and players he wanted to work with him on his current album, he didn’t hear no. Ozzy Osbourne, Iggy Pop, Kid Rock, Dave Grohl and Fergie all artists who have the luxury of saying no to plenty of requests – all easily and quickly said yes. And so, Slash, was born.

Since emerging into the frontline of iconic rockers with the late-‘80s surge of his seminal band Guns N’ Roses, has been one of the world’s most sought after guitarists. Iconic musicians are often looking to Slash to add that special touch to recordings. From Michael Jackson (“Black and White,” “Give In to Me”) to Ray Charles to Stevie Wonder, directors Quentin Tarantino and Darren Aronofsky (core contributions to the soundtrack of “Jackie Brown” and the signature sound of the score to “The Wrestler”), the top figures in modern music and popular culture have demanded the definitive rock guitarist of a generation. Critics and fans alike still debate the best rock riffs of all time with “Sweet Child O’ Mine” consistently taking top honors. And a Time Magazine survey placed Slash second only to Jimi Hendrix among electric guitarists. Slash is ever modest about his place in rock history, loathe to even consider it.

Slash’s history encompasses Guns N’ Roses, his own Slash’s Snakepit band and two global hit albums anchoring Velvet Revolver in recent years, but the Slash album will be his first solo effort. The album is centered around the theme that no matter who is singing, there’s an energy, excitement and, above all, musicality to the guitar playing that elevates and unifies the music throughout.

After Guns N’ Roses sold more than 100 million albums worldwide and dominated the music industry with its signature album “Appetite For Destruction”, Slash went on to see critical acclaim with Slash’s Snakepit and global success with Velvet Revolver. Fans have also flocked to imitate Slash style in Guitar Hero III: Legend of Rock where he is one of the most recognized playable characters. He is also know as a guitar connoisseur, owning more than 100 guitars, many custom made for him, and a Gibson Signature Slash model made in his honor.

The solo album comes on the recent heels of several other projects such as recording songs with Ron Wood of the Rolling Stones on his upcoming solo album, writing and performing his first full film score, sitting in with the Black Eyed Peas in concert, and co-writing his 2007 autobiography Slash. All signs indicate Slash won’t be slowing down anytime soon.
