Like A Storm announced as support for Alter Bridge
US-based, Kiwi-born hard rockers Like A Storm have been announced as the opening act for the legendary Alter Bridge, playing in Auckland this March. MJR Presents is bringing both bands to New Zealand for a one-off show at the Powerstation.
Like A Storm have fought hard to be heard. The three brothers from New Zealand went to the United States in 2009 knowing no one. After tirelessly touring to promote their debut album, The End of the Beginning, they built a diehard and devoted fanbase and soon were opening for the likes of Creed, Alter Bridge and Shinedown in the States.
Now they’re undoubtedly the biggest band to emerge out of New Zealand’s active rock market on an international level. Ironically, despite touring the world with the likes of Tremonti, Shinedown, Steel Panther and Slash/Myles Kennedy, the Like A Storm boys have never played with a full band on home turf. It makes their return to Kiwi soil all the more special.
THIS IS AN R18 EVENT RESTRICTED TO PATRONS ABOVE 18 YEARS OF AGE. FOR MORE INFO ON AGE RESTRICTIONS & PROTOCOLS CLICK HERE
Orlando, Florida-based rock legends Alter Bridge are today announcing that they will return to Australian shores in April 2017, presented by MJR Presents. Early October 2016 saw Alter Bridge release their latest studio album ‘The Last Hero’ in Australia – to an ARIA #6 album chart debut. With an obviously loyal and ravenous fanbase down under, Alter Bridge are coming down under to celebrate the success.
Alter Bridge's album Fortress was released in 2013 and it was clear their fans were eagerly waiting for them to return. Now the rock juggernaut comprised of Myles Kennedy on vocals/guitars, Mark Tremonti on guitars/vocals, Brian Marshall on bass and Scott Phillips on drums are returning to Australia on the back of their fifth album, The Last Hero. The new release is a monster that builds upon the sound that Alter Bridge has become known for with their uncompromised vocal melodies, untouchable dueling guitar work and pounding rhythm section.
Founded in 2004, the quartet immediately went gold in the US with their debut album One Day Remains – and that was just the beginning. Each and every subsequent critically acclaimed release would hit the top album charts in Alter Bridge`s home country, find partnerships with the likes of WWE, MLB and ESPN, and concerts around the globe created a legion of supporters known as the AB Nation! Europe also pledged their allegiance. Alter Bridge`s 2013 effort Fortress gave the band their highest chart entries in Germany, the UK, Austria and Switzerland.
The Last Hero creates musical imagery to showcase a common theme that runs throughout the record: paying tribute to, and touching on the need for heroes and leaders in a complex world. "Show me a leader that won`t compromise – show me a leader so hope never dies.“
