It is with immense pleasure to announce that The Melvins – the indisputable and infamous leaders in the realm of all things weirdly wonderful yet uncompromisingly rockin’ and heavy – will return to Europe for a series of dates this summer. These shows will follow the upcoming release of "Basses Loaded" (June 3, Ipecac Recordings), which appropriately features not one, but six different bass players. The tour line up will feature Buzz, Dale and Steve McDonald and sees the trio kick off proceedings as the Saturday headliners of Temples Festival in Bristol (UK) then heading through Belgium, the Netherlands, Germany, Denmark, Sweden, Norway and France before returning to the UK. The full list of dates can be found below:

When the producers of LaconiaFest set out to create the most iconic music experience of all time in New Hampshire, they had one name on the list. Steven Tyler. Now, LaconiaFest have announced that legendary music icon Steven Tyler is set to perform on the main stage of the motorcycle music festival on June 15, 2016. Tyler will take the stage at LaconiaFest backed by his Nashville-based band, Loving Mary.
A beloved staple in New Hampshire, Tyler has a long-time connection to the area. In addition to spending his childhood summers in Lake Sunapee, it is where he met the members of the Joe Perry Jam Band, which later evolved into Aerosmith.
One of music's most recognizable and dynamic performers, Tyler has been cited by Rolling Stone as "one of the greatest singers of all time." Tyler and Aerosmith have sold more than 150 million records worldwide and he has won four GRAMMY® Awards, six American Music Awards, four Billboard Music Awards and an Emmy® Award. Tyler is currently working on his highly-anticipated solo album that is scheduled to be released this summer on Big Machine Label Group's Dot Records. His critically-acclaimed single, "Red, White, & You" is available now.
Tyler also has a love for motorcycles, making him a natural fit for the festival. In September 2007, Tyler launched a line of custom motorcycles, now named Dirico Motorcycles, and is a co-founder and partner of the motorcycle brand.
"We couldn't be more proud of Steven Tyler's homecoming to the state of New Hampshire for LaconiaFest," says Tyler Glover, co-producer of LaconiaFest. "Fans in this area grew up listening to Tyler's iconic voice several times a day on the radio, and they are even more eager to see him perform in person."
Tickets for the June 15th Steven Tyler show will be announced and go on sale soon via www.laconiafest.com.
