PR Pitches We Actually Finished Reading!

This one just landed, announcing the Can't Stop Rockin' tour. It features "three of the hardest-working bands in rock-and-roll" and, thus, will include "hit-packed sets spanning the course of these three unparalleled rock legacies."

Also, there are some bargain tickets available, under the guise of a rock-and-roll stimulus package: "Ticket Prices as Low as $13.50 in Most Markets for Three Classic American Bands," the release says.

Cities on the itinerary so far: Phoenix, Albuquerque, Las Vegas, Los Angeles and Kansas City, plus Fresno, Calif., Ontario, Calif., Morrison, Colo., Alpharetta, Ga., Gilford, N.H, and Verona, N.Y.

Sponsors: VH1 Classic and Rock Band.

Here's a quote from the lead singer/rhythm guitarist from one of the groups: "The world is going through a weird phase, and everybody needs music now more than ever. We all need to join our friends, pool our resources, combine our energies, because there is power in people coming together. That spirit has brought [band name redacted] and [band name redacted] together to write, record and tour together, and celebrate it all with the greatest fans in America."

So....can you guess the bands?

I'm guessing Poison, Flavor Flav, and Adler's Appetite?

I'm just sorry I read about this at Billboard before coming here. I must admit I'm curious about the new single from two of the bands.

No idea, but I'd guess Styx and/or Journey has to be involved.
