gene simmons

Gene Simmons and Ace Frehley are to perform together on stage for the first-time in over sixteen years. The last time was just before Ace left Kiss in 2001.

The performance will take place at The Children Matter Benefit Concert on September 20th 2017 in St Paul, Minnesota to support the victims of Hurricane Harvey. Don Felder, former lead guitarist of The Eagles, and Cheap Trick are also confirmed to perform, with headliner Gene Simmons Band.

Flipp and The Jayhawks are billed as opening acts.

Over 10,000 are expected to fill CHS Field Stadium in downtown St Paul to witness rock history with once-in-a-lifetime collaborative performances between Gene, Ace, Don Felder and Cheap Trick with all proceeds from The Children Matter Benefit Concert directed to the hurricane relief efforts of the nonprofit MATTER.

MATTER works in partnership with on-ground relief organisations to source and ship the items needed most, such as: MATTERbox Meal Kits, sanitation and contamination prevention supplies and more to the children and families affected displaced by the hurricane.

Tickets start at under $60 and range up to $250 for VIP Meet & Greet and can be purchased online at thechildrenmatter.ngo where donations can also be made.

You can also make a donation by texting CAUSE to 243-725.





NOW AEROSMITH FANS CAN HAVE THEIR NAME IN FUTURE COLLECTOR'S ITEM

aerosmith

Here's a fabulous Aerosmith pictorial document as seen through the lens of famed British photographer Tony Mottram. Tony photographed the band over many years for various magazines and now has a monthly column here on MetalTalk.

As was often the case, only one photo ever got published and in the fast moving world of weekly magazines sometimes entire sessions would be done and left undeveloped.

Tony started shooting Aerosmith from towards the end of the period with Jimmy Crespo and Rick Dufay and onwards through the return of original members Joe Perry and Brad Whitford that resulted in the albums 'Done With Mirrors', 'Permanent Vacation' and 'Pump'.

As well as shooting the band several times in England, this collection includes images from a session at the band's rehearsal room in Boston. Littered throughout is a mixture of live and off stage photos including a selection of photos taken at London's famous Marquee club when they were joined on stage by Jimmy Page.

This limited edition hardback book, presented in a flight case and printed on silk paper, is an opportunity to own a unique selection of photos, most of which have never seen the light of day before.

This unique item is presented in an aluminium flight case and will be published in late November. Earlybird subscribers who order by 31st October will have their name printed within a dedicated page in the book.
