World's Loudest Month LogoWorld’s Loudest Month, created in partnership by AEG Live and Danny Wimmer Presents, continues to grow in 2014. Featuring the biggest names in rock music performing in seven distinct U.S. concert atmospheres, the World’s Loudest Month is excited to announce the addition of two new festivals, as well as the 2014 festival dates. In 2013, the World’s Loudest Month featured over 125 artists playing for more than a quarter of a million rock music fans across the country on five consecutive weekends, confirming that rock music is as vital as ever.

The 2014 World’s Loudest Month festival events and dates are as follows:

Monster Energy’s Welcome To Rockville: April 26 & 27 in North Florida
Fort Rock: April 26 in Fort Myers, FL
Carolina Rebellion: May 3 & 4 in Charlotte, NC
Rock On The Range: May 16, 17 & 18 in Columbus, OH
Rocklahoma: May 23, 24 & 25 in Pryor, OK
RockFest: May 31 in Kansas City, MO

“When we created the World’s Loudest Month platform, we did it with the goal of growing it to become the launch pad for rock festival fans across the country,” comments Joe Litvag, Co-Executive Producer. “We’re excited to add Fort Myers to the mix in 2014, which further expands our reach for the rock genre.”

The World’s Loudest Month kick-off weekend begins in the Sunshine state of Florida with Monster Energy’s Welcome To Rockville, April 26 and 27. Florida’s largest rock festival returns to North Florida for its fourth year and–along with the addition of Fort Rock (Fort Myers, FL) on April 26–kicks off WLM! Only the state of Florida could handle two major events on the same day! For ticket specials, hotel and VIP packages, visit www.welcometorockville.com and www.fortrockfestival.com.

“I’ve been saying all year that I keep hearing rock is ‘dead,’ yet record numbers attend our shows every year. Our festivals are for music fans who buck trends and remain true to the music they like. Our job as tastemakers in rock and roll is to find the markets where music fans are underserved and I am happy to add Fort Rock to our World’s Loudest Month and include it on the same weekend with Welcome To Rockville, says Danny Wimmer, Co-Executive Producer.

Next up is Carolina Rebellion, returning to Rock City Campgrounds at Charlotte Motor Speedway in North Carolina for its second consecutive year. With on-site camping, amazing VIP packages and a lineup featuring today’s biggest bands, in four short years Carolina Rebellion has quickly grown to be the Carolinas’ Biggest Weekend of Rock. www.CarolinaRebellion.com

Rock On The Range–the nation’s biggest and most-acclaimed active rock festival–will grow to three full days in 2014 after a successful expanded Friday Night in 2013. Over 105,000 die-hard Rangers attended ROTR last year, traveling to Columbus, OH from all 50 states and over the globe, resulting in a sellout for the first time since the inaugural, one-day Rock on the Range in 2007. Pre-sale Layaway tickets go on sale on Monday, December 2, and VIP, hotel, and camping packages go on sale Thursday, December 5 at  www.RockOnTheRange.com

Rocklahoma–America’s biggest Memorial Day Weekend party–continues to be the ultimate destination Rock event in the country.

Ticket renewals for 2014 will be available starting Monday, December 2. To renew your 2013 ticket location, call the box office at (866) 310-2288. www.Rocklahoma.com

RockFest celebrates its astounding 22nd year in 2014. Drawing crowds in excess of 55,000 annually at Penn Valley Park in downtown Kansas City, RockFest is definitely worthy of its title as “the BIGGEST one-day music festival in the United States.” www.RockfestKC.com

The World’s Loudest Month mobile app (available via iTunes and Android), released in 2013, will be updated early next year and will feature all festival information, the latest rock news, exclusive songs from current and previous WLM bands, and more. Band lineups and additional details for each festival will be announced in early 2014.

Monster Energy returns as a sponsor of the World’s Loudest Month for the second year in a row, along with the valued partnerships with Jägermeister, Jack Daniel’s and Ernie Ball.

For those that haven’t heard, Carolina Rebellion‘s Sunday show was cancelled after only 6 bands played due to weather issues. While the Tickets said Rain or Shine, the event organizers obviously hadn’t figured on any rain whatsoever because there were no screens around the stages to protect against any weather. After a late start, and several bands not taking the stage, Buckcherry was the last band to take the stage. Three hours later the event was finally officially cancelled. The crowd was less than pleased.

Mainly due to the complete lack of information coming from the event organizers. They had a Twitter Feed and a Facebook page that was being updated all day telling everyone to come out that the show was still on. And then once it got too bad for the bands to play (or the bands simply refused to play in those conditions), they stopped updating the feeds.

Put 30,000 people in a mud pit, in the cold and rain, and then don’t give them anything to do for 3 hours. Promise them a show Rain or Shine and then leave them to their own devices for three hours with no communication. They’re lucky the crowd of predominantly drunk rednecks didn’t tear down the stages for them directly on top of them.

This after 3 years of questionable decisions on what they are trying to create as a world renown festival. The first year the organizers didn’t expect more than 10-15,000 attendees. 30,000 people showed up. There simply were not enough facilities or concessions to handle double the expected occupancy.

Year two had them move the location of the festival to the middle of nowhere in Rockingham, NC. It was a giant dustbowl with brutal heat and sun and absolutely no where to go to get out of it.

Year three saw them move the event for the third time. A much better location as far as having parking and hotels around it to stay at. It is now housed outside the Charlotte Motor Speedway, and overall it seemed like a good location. However the stages were so far apart and the bands started on one stage as the last note was still ringing out on the other so that you missed the first couple of songs of each band. There was simply no way to get from one stage to the other while wadding through 29,999 other people in a timely fashion.

And then there was the weather this year canceling the first two day event in the history of Carolina Rebellion.

The organizers, AEG LIVE and THIRD ARM Entertainment have released the following statement on their website announcing their plan to partially reimburse concert goers or offer them a free 2nd day ticket to next year’s event.

You can read it all below.

From Carolina Rebellion‘s website:

Dear Rebels:

Please forgive the length of this letter. But we feel we have some explaining to do.

carolina rebellionFirst, we want to thank each and every one of you for enduring the rain and coming out to show the country just how hardcore the Rebels really are. We also want to thank you for sticking with us and for taking the time to voice your comments, praise and criticism.

We’ve had some bumps in making Carolina Rebellion into the massive, world-recognized festival we believe it can be. We produce many successful events around the country, including Rock on the Range, Welcome to Rockville, and Rocklahoma, and we see great things for Rebellion. But before we can grow it, we have to earn your trust. Therefore we want to let you know where we think we’ve gone wrong and what we’re doing to fix it.

A successful festival must have a predictable experience. And to be predictable, we have to be in the same venue each year. For three years we have tried different locations and are happy to say that we feel that Rock City Campground at Charlotte Motor Speedway is the right venue, and we hope to make it our long term home. By staying in the same place, we can focus on improving the overall festival experience. For instance, we are looking at how to better position the stages and the time between bands. You have also asked about the extent of the weather protection for the stages themselves. We are addressing this with the staging company and will consider bringing in different pieces of equipment next year that provide more protection from the elements. Please keep sharing your thoughts and ideas. We want you to know that we are listening, and we will keep listening.

Regarding the late cancellation due to inclement weather, many of you have pointed out that the tickets say “Rain or Shine.” That is true, unless and until safety becomes an issue. This is no different than any large sporting event or other outdoor event. We were monitoring the weather in real-time from the National Weather Service and coordinating with the bands and local law enforcement every step of the way. In hindsight, we regret not giving you more information on how, if, and when the show might continue. Our lack of information was not meant to be deceitful. The weather pattern was constantly changing on Sunday, making it difficult to give you a concrete message, and we all were really hoping the weather would clear and the show could continue. By 7:15pm, it was decided by all parties that conditions were not going to improve and that it was unsafe to keep going.

We absolutely did have a cancellation plan in place with local law enforcement. That plan required that before making a cancellation announcement, we had to forewarn our staff and security to ensure a safe and orderly exit. It takes a bit of time to make sure that message has been communicated to all. Once we had everyone in place to manage a safe exit, the public announcement was made. As unpleasant as the rain was for all of us, it was imperative to only release information in an organized and safe fashion.

Your safety is not our only responsibility. We are also responsible for your experience. We want a long term relationship with you. And while we appreciate that many of you have pointed out that we cannot control the weather, we don’t feel that we did all that we could under the circumstances to maximize your experience. Many of you have asked about a make-up date. We would love to do that but it takes many months to plan an event of this magnitude, and there are many variables involved, most importantly artist availability. We just cannot give you a guarantee today of when and how we would put on that event or what bands would play or where it could be held.

So, we’ve decided to do the next best thing by giving you a ticket to next year’s Sunday show day absolutely FREE. That’s right, you will receive the financial equivalent of a Rebellion general admission ticket for Sunday and it won’t cost you anything. We also understand that some of you may not be able to or want to attend Carolina Rebellion next year. Rather than just say we are sorry, we want to make sure everyone is offered something. So, if you are not interested in a free ticket to next year’s Sunday show, you can instead opt for a 20% refund of the face value of your 2013 ticket purchase.

Here is how this process will work:
1. Click on this link anytime now through Tuesday, May 14th at 11:59pm ET to “Register A Claim” with Rebellion. You will be asked to fill out a form that will include your 2013 Ticket Confirmation Number, name on credit card, address, phone, email, etc. The form will also ask you if you would like to opt for the free Sunday show ticket in 2014 or the partial refund of your 2013 purchase. Note that we will not be extending this deadline, so please make sure to register your claim by the cutoff date and time.

2. After we have received all of the registered claims, we will verify your 2013 purchase information within our system to make sure everything matches, and we will begin processing the claims. Note that this will take some time, so please be patient, but we will get to all claims.

3. If you request a partial refund, we will initiate a credit with your credit card company or issue you a check. If you request a free Sunday show ticket to the 2014 festival, we will send you a unique code via email when we announce the 2014 festival info, and you will have a specified period of time to use the code to make your purchase at that time, which will include the free Sunday ticket. The unique code will deduct an amount equivalent to the base general admission ticket price for one day from your purchase.

We truly do value each and every one of you, because without you, there will be no Carolina Rebellion. Because it is impossible to customize a remedy for each individual, we are trying to do what the majority of you are asking for. We look forward to 2014, a bigger and better experience for you, and hopefully for much better weather.

If you have further questions, please feel free to email us at rebellioninfo@aeglive.com or leave a voice mail message on our hotline,
314-726-8020. We will get back to you as quickly as we can.

Sincerely,

The Carolina Rebellion Team

STAIND


Live From Mohegan Sun

4 out of 10




There are many bands I want a live CD from. Nickelback is one of them. You need to see Nickelback live. Why? Because they are so much heavier live than they are on CD, everything comes across crunchier, faster, fatter, and rocks the hell out. Nickelback live is good Nickelback, you can say whatever you want about their CDs. However, I am afraid that a live Nickelback CD might have the same issue a live Staind CD has.

My first Staind show was in 07 as they headlined the shed I worked at in Raleigh. I didn’t expect much from them because I didn’t think their music would translate well live. It seemed a bit too brooding and monolithic to come across live. I was wrong. It was a great show. High energy music that just grabbed you and moved you.

I saw them again this past summer at Carolina Rebellion (you can see the pictures HERE) and I was surprised how different it seemed to me. It could simply be that it was 3pm in the afternoon, it was 90 degrees in the shade, and we were all just dazed and confused by the merciless heat. But the set seemed to lack the energy that I had witnessed a few years earlier.

So I randomly get the new Staind live CD in the mail. I’ve like many of their songs over the years, and like I said, I enjoyed their live show a few years ago. So it is with mixed feelings I throw the CD in and begin listening. It takes about two thirds of the way through the CD before I get to a song I like, yes I recognized the radio hits but I said songs I like! And without the visual of the live show it strikes me that I was actually right about Staind live, it is a little plodding, a little dirge like, a little slow and low energy.

The slower angstier Staind songs don’t work on a live CD setting to me. The slow tempo just seems to drag, and while Aaron may scream his way through it trying to emote and evoke a response and strike a chord with the crowd, the songs just don’t pop for me.

Finally we get to a song that works, For You. And yet, somehow it loses steam in the middle of the song. You hear that shit on the CD and it just stomps like a juggernaut from beginning to end. Live his voice is a little strained, and the music is all low end and somehow falters. Again if there were visuals to go along with it, and we could see the band and crowd it might work better. Especially since the break down Aaron has the crowd sing along with him.

Outside will never be as good as it was on the Family Values tour that was released as a single with him and Fred Durst. Not because of Fred Durst mind you, just because, it works so much better just Aaron and an acoustic guitar. With the band backing him the song loses the intimacy (yeah, there were 20,000 people in the crowd for Family Values but the song had an intimacy to it) that you feel with the single. And of course he has the crowd sing the chorus and they’re a beat off and it kills the song.

It’s Been Awhile may be the highlight of the set. It is a slower plodding song yes, but it seems to come across better than the others. Oh, wait, there’s the breakdown… Sorry, I was wrong.

Let’s just get to Mudshovel; they can’t fuck that up right? I mean, this is the song that put Staind on the map. Goddamnit. Whoever began this bullshit sing along crap needs to be drawn and quartered. I want the artist to sing, I don’t want to sing, I didn’t pay upwards of $100 to see you just to have to sing for YOU. See how that works, I pay you, you sing to me. I don’t want to hear the crowd sing, I don’t want to do a sing along, a Staind show isn’t even a ‘feel good’ show, it’s all Emo and angsty. So why are 3,000 people in a casino being forced to sing along to a diatribe song about a man digging through the depths of his soul trying to get past the girl that ripped his heart out and filleted it in front of him?

The only sing along that has ever worked (and only once mind you) was on Tom Petty’s Pack Up The Plantation when he starts Breakdown and the crowd starts singing the song before him, and he lets them sing three quarters of the whole thing. It is organic, it was a moment in time, he didn’t tell them to sing along, they just started and were so loud he just stepped away from the mic and let them continue. That is an awesome moment in time captured on a live recording. This bullshit today of bands forcing you to sing along with them. I don’t want to be part of your band; I want you to dance like the monkey I paid you to be. Perform for me and get on with it. If I wanted to sing I’d do it naturally, not because you tell me and everyone else in the room to do it.

And you’re singing country now, so how ‘angsty’ can you be? Or did you just change in your ‘mommy and daddy didn’t love me growing up’ for a little, ‘my truck broke down after she ran over my dog with it’?

Wait, wait…Something to Remind You might just be THE highlight of the CD for me. Never heard this song before. It is just Aaron and a guitar. It is what Outside should still be. There’s no sing along, there’s no plodding, it is just… a very cool song and great way to end the show. So, if for nothing else, Something to Remind You is why you want to pick up this live CD.
