  NO 'RUMOURS IN THE AIR' AS NIGHT RANGER TO HEADLINE HRH AOR 2018
Johnny Main
30th May 2017

Heads up, AOR fans! HRH are delighted to announce that San Francisco rockers Night Ranger will be headlining HRH AOR VII.

Joining an impressive line-up of dozens of acts for the festival, Night Ranger are a welcome addition to the festival line-up. Famed as a truly awesome live band, Night Ranger will be delivering a storming set of undiluted, adrenaline-fuelled rock'n'roll. The group was formed in the early eighties, and their first five albums sold more than ten million copies worldwide.

They've sold a colossal eighteen million albums in total, earning multi-platinum and gold album status along the way. They've built up a back catalogue to die for (including instantly recognizable hit singles and signature album tracks hits, like the power ballad 'Sister Christian') yet are still releasing new material, like their new single, 'Somehow Someway', which is taken from their 11-song album 'Don't Let Up'.

Long-time HRH AOR favourites, HRH AOR has actively helped the band reconnect with its UK audience and fans. After many years of discussion, HRH were able to draw Night Ranger North as headliners for HRH AOR III. There, frontman and bassist Jack Blades used Night Ranger's headline slot to promise fans the band were on a mission to reconnect with their too-often-ignored UK audience, then followed up his pre-show promise with a stellar set lasting almost two hours.





Blades signed off Night Ranger's HRH AOR III set with 'You Can Still Rock In America', but HRH are glad to confirm Night Rangers can still rock in the UK too - at HRH AOR VI, Camp HRH.

Check out 'Day And Night' from their 'Don't Let Up' album here:



You can also view the bands interview for HRH TV at HRH AOR 3.



HRH AOR VI takes place at Camp HRH, Pwllheli, North Wales, Gwynedd, between Thursday 8th and Sunday 11th March 2018.

MONSTERS OF ROCK IN FULL FLIGHT SURE TO BECOME FUTURE COLLECTOR'S ITEM

monsters of rock

Monsters Of Rock In Full Flight is stricylt limited to 300 worldwide and is available from 30th November but those ordering before 31st October will have their name published within a dedicated page in the book.

It's a deluxe 128 page hardback book in a metal flight case with a narrative by Jerry Bloom.

When promoter Paul Loasby put on the first Monsters Of Rock Festival in 1980 he could probably never have imagined it would become an annual event that would endure for so many years.

Featuring bands from the UK, Germany, Canada and USA, Loasby chose to stage the event at the Donington race circuit in the middle of England and it would prove to be a defining moment for many of the bands on the bill.

Not least for headliners Rainbow as it was the their last ever show to feature drum legend Cozy Powell. As it would happen it turned out to be the last for vocalist Graham Bonnet as well. For many of the other bands on the bill such as Scorpions, Judas Priest and Saxon, they were all on the ascendancy and would soon go on to even greater success.

Now in celebration of this first ever Monsters Of Rock Festival comes this hardback book full of glorious photos of the bands that took to the stage for that inaugural event including back stage shots. Most of these shots have not been published before which add to the uniqueness of this deluxe 128-page book which is packaged in its own flight case.

Also included are stories surrounding the event with tales and recollections from those who were there, including artists and fans alike. Each book will be signed by the author. The 300 will sell fast and definitely go on to become collector's items so order yours now right here to avoid disappointment.







NOW AEROSMITH FANS CAN HAVE THEIR NAME IN FUTURE COLLECTOR'S ITEM

Here's a fabulous Aerosmith pictorial document as seen through the lens of famed British photographer Tony Mottram. Tony photographed the band over many years for various magazines and now has a monthly column here on MetalTalk.

As was often the case, only one photo ever got published and in the fast moving world of weekly magazines sometimes entire sessions would be done and left undeveloped.

Tony started shooting Aerosmith from towards the end of the period with Jimmy Crespo and Rick Dufay and onwards through the return of original members Joe Perry and Brad Whitford that resulted in the albums 'Done With Mirrors', 'Permanent Vacation' and 'Pump'.

As well as shooting the band several times in England, this collection includes images from a session at the band's rehearsal room in Boston. Littered throughout is a mixture of live and off stage photos including a selection of photos taken at London's famous Marquee club when they were joined on stage by Jimmy Page.

This limited edition hardback book, presented in a flight case and printed on silk paper, is an opportunity to own a unique selection of photos, most of which have never seen the light of day before.

This unique item is presented in an aluminium flight case and will be published in late November. Earlybird subscribers who order by 31st October will have their name printed within a dedicated page in the book.
