Let’s rock! Sunset Rockfest with rock legends Dee Snider, Dokken and L.A. Guns featuring Steve Riley and Kelly Nickels will make a special appearance at the Sunset Amphitheater at Sunset Station on Saturday, July 27, 2019.
Of course, best known as the lead singer of the acclaimed rock band Twisted Sister, Dee Snider is more than a musician. Dee is a radio personality, television host, author, screenplay writer, actor, and most of all he is a doting husband of 27 years, and father of four children. In radio, Dee begins his eighth year hosting the nationally-syndicated “House of Hair.” The weekly show is heard in more than 175 markets across the country.
Never setting limits, Dee wrote, produced, and acted in “Dee Snider’s Strangeland.” This horror flick immediately struck a resonant chord with a legion of horror fans, elevating the movie to one of the most rented movies in its class. But don’t think music is in Dee’s past. While he recently reunited with his original Twisted Sister mates, he keeps creating. His latest creation Van Helsing’s Curse is an 18 piece rock orchestra that mixes everything from Black Sabbath to Beethoven. Set to a spooky story line, written and narrated by Snider himself, Van Helsing’s Curse has been hailed by critics as the new soundtrack for Halloween.
Dokken is an American heavy metal and hard rock band formed in 1978. They split up in 1989 but reformed four years . The group accumulated numerous charting singles, has sold more than 10 million albums worldwide and was nominated for a GRAMMY Award in 1989. After success with their debut album Breaking the Chains, the band released three consecutive platinum-selling albums, including 1984’s Tooth and Nail, 1985’s Under Lock and Key and 1987’s Back for the Attack. The band’s success continued into the 2000s, with their most recent release, 2018’s Return to the East Live.
L.A. Guns was formed in 1986 and signed with Polygram Records in 1987, recording their first album that summer. This first album, titled L.A. Guns, went on to sell more than 750,000 copies and earned the band its first gold album. Tours with AC/DC, Iron Maiden and Def Leppard followed. A compilation of the videos made from this first album also earned the band a gold video award. L.A. Guns went into the studio to record their second album, Cocked and Loaded, in the spring of 1989. It was a hit right away with the release of “Rip and Tear” as the first single and video. “Never Enough” and “The Ballad of Jayne” followed, pushing album sales over 1,000,000 and earning the band its first platinum record.
The band’s third album, Hollywood Vampires, was recorded in the fall of 1990. With the release of “Kiss My Love Goodbye” as the first single and video, and another successful world tour, the album went on to sell 700,000 copies and earned the band its third consecutive gold album. With more than 30 years’ worth of noteworthy material, the band have proved to be true warriors of the 80s genre and are geared to tear it up across the world giving audiences the high octane rock ‘n roll that is L.A. Guns.
