THE CLASSIC ROCK ROLL OF HONOUR 2014 Presented By Orange Amplification
‘ROCK’S MOST PRESTIGIOUS NIGHT‘ ANNOUNCES LIVE PERFORMANCES BY:
KINGS OF CHAOS, CALIFORNIA BREED, RIVAL SONS AND SCOTT WEILAND & THE WILDABOUTS
TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 4 AT AVALON IN HOLLYWOOD, CA
Hosted by UK-based Classic Rock magazine, the 10th annual Classic Rock Awards–the Classic Rock Roll Of Honour presented by Orange Amplification–announced today a stellar line-up of live performances from some of the most exciting and respected artists in rock: Kings Of Chaos, California Breed, Rival Sons and Scott Weiland & The Wildabouts.
This star-studded list of performers will be joining an already announced list of rock icons to be on-hand at the all-star event on November 4 at the Avalon in Hollywood, CA including: Sammy Hagar (this year’s host), Gregg Allman (this year’s Living Legend Award recipient) and guitarist Robby Krieger and drummer John Densmore of The Doors (this year’s Inspiration Award recipient), and many more.
Kings Of Chaos, the part-time, all-star rock’n’roll collective, are one of the most exciting live bands in rock for two distinct reasons: 1. The a-list revolving door of guest performers; and 2. The bands core line-up of Guns N’ Roses’ Duff McKagan, Matt Sorum and Gilby Clarke alongside guitar aficionado, Extreme‘s Nuno Bettencourt. It’s a combination that brings anticipation and killer live performances in abundance.
For this intimate live performance, Kings of Chaos will be joined on stage by Sammy Hagar, the evening’s host and frontman of Van Halen, Montrose and Chickenfoot; former Deep Purple and current California Breed frontman Glenn Hughes; and more rock royalty, Def Leppard‘s Joe Elliott and Phil Collen; and one of the most recognizable and important figures in rock, Billy Gibbons (ZZ Top).
As well as performing with the aforementioned Kings of Chaos, Glenn Hughes will also be playing a stripped-back set with his current band California Breed, with 23-year-old newcomer guitarist-singer-songwriter Andrew Watt.
Rival Sons have seen a meteoric rise in international recognition since their inception in 2009. Playing to thousands in sell-out shows around the world, this will be a unique performance in front of hundreds of their peers.
Scott Weiland, notorious frontman of Stone Temple Pilots and Velvet Revolver, brings his new band, Scott Weiland & The Wildabouts, to perform their acclaimed live show to this star-studded audience.
The Classic Rock Roll Of Honour awards will air on AXS TV, December 28th @ 9:00PM ET / 6:00PM PT.
