Welcome back to Artists On The Road – The Honey POP’s place for all things tour! This week we bring you a wide variety of updates including touring announcements as well as a virtual event!
Following up on two massive weekends of sold-out shows in 2018 and 2019, LEVITATION 2021 will bring another epic four-day weekend of music to Austin!
Over the last year throughout the pandemic, LEVITATION has been releasing live performance streams and live albums via LEVITATION Sessions. It has provided a music lifeline for fans and artists, as well as also raising funds for non-profit organizations! Undoubtedly, we’re so grateful for these sessions but it’s not the same as an in-person show. That’s why we’re super excited to say LEVITATION has just announced they will be going ahead in Texas this year!
With more artists still to be announced, the current genre-spanning lineup is full of incredibly talented artists. Some of the artists that will be on the road for these shows include Thundercats, Japanese Breakfast, and The Black Angels! These shows are set to happen on Halloween weekend – starting October 28th, with the final show taking place on October 31st! Grab your tickets to attend LEVITATION here!
Stand Up & Shout For Ronnie James Dio’s Birthday – A Virtual Event
Stand up and Shout For Ronnie James Dios’ Birthday is a global livestream founded in memory of the late heavy metal icon Ronnie James Dio. The artist sadly lost his battle with gastric cancer in 2010 and this livestream raises money for the non-profitable charity in honor of the Legendary rockstar – The Stand Up And Shout For Ronnie James Dio Fund. The global fundraising event will bring together celebrities and fans all over the world, to honor Dio’s undeniable impact both on and off the stage.
The already star-studded event has recently announced they’ve added a lot more artists to take part in the virtual livestream. Some of these artists include Tenacious D, Lzzy Hale of Halestorm, Duff McKagan, and many more! This fund-raising concert will also feature exclusive archival footage from Dio’s life and long-spanning career, as well as never-before-seen footage from the Dio Cancer Fund events held in Los Angeles since 2011!
Airing at 10 pm BST on July 10th, this live event will bring together unusual musical pairings for one-of-a-kind performances, special birthday messages as well as artist interviews! Unquestionably, a lovely way to raise money and to celebrate the late Ronnie James Dio! All tickets for this unmissable rock livestream as well as the merchandise for the show can be bought here.
