Greetings my music minded friends and welcome to March. If you’ve been keeping up with our reports thusfar then you know that the month has already started off with a bit of force. Not only did we get the announcement of the Final KISS Tour dates ever but it was also the 50th Anniversary of Pink Floyd’s amazing “The Dark Side of The Moon” album. Then we learned that Eluveitie founder and lead singer Chrigel would be missing the tour that is only just starting. Whew. The weather here in our Metropolis has been weird with some cool days and some warmer ones but we aren’t here to discuss those things and instead are on point to share that it’s another one of those Bandcamp Fridays and its the second one for 2023 which is cool. I’ve been doing these kinds of posts since the middle of last year in order to try and have said post help the artists out. Since that time I’ve also decided to keep them running on the PiercingMetal website. So what is Bandcamp Friday you might ask if you are one of our newer site visitors, let’s review just what this is shall we?
What Is Bandcamp Friday: Bandcamp Fridays allow artists and labels releasing music to take back 93% of the money earned through sales, with the other 7% being used for processing fees and charges.

It is with a heavy heart that we must inform you that Chrigel will not be able to join us on our upcoming North American tour due to a family emergency. Chrigel has had to make the difficult decision to stay at home and take care of certain matters, and we fully support him in this time of need.
This decision was made at the very last minute, which is why we are only able to announce it today, on the day of our first show. We understand that this news may come as a surprise, and we apologize for any inconvenience it may cause. However, we want to assure you that we are fully prepared to deliver a one-of-a-kind Eluveitie set, with Fabi taking the lead and showcasing her incredible talents.

We knew this day was coming and it has just arrived in the revelation of the Final “50” performances by The Hottest Band In The World – KISS, who announced this news just a short time ago.
The Press Release:
Today, rock n roll legends KISS announced the absolute final shows of their final tour, THE END OF THE ROAD TOUR. Produced by Live Nation, these final show dates will kick off this October and culminate in a massive show in the city where it all began for KISS. New York City has been a part of the band’s ethos and storyline for more than four decades, so they felt it fitting to culminate an iconic Rock & Roll Hall of Fame worthy career on stage at New York’s famed MADISON SQUARE GARDEN.
