The city continues to rise from the pains of the pandemic and amazing artists are returning to the venues to perform for their fans at a record pace which is a fantastic thing to behold. We’ve pointed out that while there is more of a return that it’s not been all that easy to offer up the same number of giveaways that we used to do in the before times. Slowly but surely we rise once more and are happy to share this latest one with our readers. This is another first as PiercingMetal has never done a ticket giveaway for Blackmore’s Night.
The Details: If you’re a Hard Rock fan of any demographic, you already know the name of the Man in Black, Richie Blackmore from works with Rainbow and the legendary Deep Purple but are you properly schooled on his now long-standing Renaissance Rock experience known as Blackmore’s Night? If you have not enjoyed this troupe in the live sense then you are really missing out. It’s a festive show that finds many of the audience in Renaissance Fair attire to make the show all the more interesting. Over the years I’ve seen wizards, jesters, maidens and lords milling about and making this a lot more fun. It’s been a few years since I’ve caught them and now thanks to the marketing team at the beautiful Sony Hall in New York City, some of the PiercingMetal readership will be getting the chance to enjoy this concert for free. Let’s go over some of the details on how you participate in this giveaway.

The Details: For those who have followed my Contests area on PiercingMetal some of the text in this might sound a little bit repetitive and I will be straight with you and say that it’s almost a word for word redo with a light modification. The guys in King’s X are road warriors and one of the best sounding bands that I have ever had the pleasure of seeing in concert. It’s a fact that they’ve never disappointed their fans yet in terms of great gigs and solid recordings. Those of you who have similar experiences are likely nodding your heads along to the statement and yet despite this there are far too many people that have not a single idea about what this band holds in their musical grasp. 2018 finds them still pushing forward with the musical charge and on the cusp of their fortieth anniversary as a band. That said, I am once again super excited to say that thanks to the folks from CEG Presents, some lucky PiercingMetal fans will be hitting the show for free when they perform at Sony Hall. This will mark my fifth contest for the band and brings the PiercingMetal outlet a little bit closer to our 1700th ticket. Isn’t that cool? We like to think so. The rules on how to participate are below.
When and Where: Wednesday, August 22nd at Sony Hall (235 West 46th Street) 7PM Show
To Participate: Tell me three things that you like the most about King’s X as a band and why you need to be a part of this show. I will be picking a few lucky winners out of the responders and letting them know right below their comment so make it a good one. We ask that you please follow this criteria:

The Details: Richie Kotzen is a virtuoso guitar slinger who has been delivering the goods for many years and while he first came to awareness during his stint with Glam Rockers Poison, it was as a solo artist and later a founding member of The Winery Dogs that he gained the most prominence. His rich, soulful sound and skills on the guitar are best experienced live and that makes this announcement all the more special for us here at the PiercingMetal Media Command HQ. You might have read our posting about a brand-new venue in NYC known as Sony Hall and if not click HERE to be up to speed on this information.

When and Where: Thursday, April 19th @ Sony Hall (235 West 46th Street, NYC)
To Participate: As Richie’s name is pretty much widely known by this point in time, I’m going to keep it to my request of three reasons or things that you most enjoyed about his career. These can revisit memories of his work with Poison, Winery Dogs and of course as a solo performer. You can mix them all up if you like but just be sure that there are three items in your entry.
