New shows: Aerosmith at Staples, K-Pop invades O.C., Lamb of God returns for Halloween show
Election Day (Nov. 6) is fast approaching, and with it comes the release of Aerosmith’s new album, Music from Another Dimension!, the group’s first disc of original material since 2001’s Just Push Play.
In anticipation of that volume, the Bad Boys from Boston rocked the Hollywood Bowl in early August on the first half of their Global Warming Tour. A month after the record’s release, they return to L.A. – once again with Cheap Trick in tow – this time for a second-leg turn at Staples Center on Dec. 3.
Tickets for that stop, $89.50-$149.50, go on sale Monday, Sept. 24, at 10 a.m.
Another big day for concerts is coming up quick: All Hallow’s Eve. Arriving in L.A. that very evening is Lamb of God at the Hollywood Palladium, with support from In Flames, Hatebreed and Sylosis.
The popular heavy metal outfit returns after canceling its tour behind January’s Resolution due to the imprisonment in Prague of vocalist Randy Blythe, for alleged manslaughter charges at a concert two years ago. Blythe was released in August, so the Virginia band is back on the road and headed west for that Oct. 31 show, $48.35, on sale Friday at 10 a.m.
Another Halloween weekend show: Jane’s Addiction, on the final date of its Theatre of the Escapists Tour, Oct. 27 at the Wiltern, fresh from a particularly dazzling headlining turn at Doheny Days earlier this month. Don’t miss it: $49.50 -$69.50, on sale Friday at 10 a.m.
