Rock Report 9/13/22 – Motley Crue, Children of Bodom and Anthrax!

This past Friday night (Sept. 9), Mötley Crüe finished the 2022 portion of their expansive “Stadium Tour” with a show at Las Vegas’ Allegiant Stadium. Beyond drummer Tommy Lee announcing that he’s joined OnlyFans, vocalist Vince Neil newly declared that in addition to touring internationally with Def Leppard next year, the quartet plan to resume traveling across the U.S. in 2024.

Three former members of Children of Bodom have found a new way to continue their legacy, preparing to open their own bar with a band museum and a nod to local culture with the opportunity for fans to experience Finland’s sauna culture. This new undertaking that they’re calling the Bodom Bar.  Teasing a bit of what fans can expect, they offer, “The new HQ of CoB will combine a museum and a bar but also include the possibility to experience the Finnish sauna culture.

If used, Anthrax could have one song on their new album that has an absolutely killer groove. Drummer Charlie Benante picked up a guitar and laid down some distortion, fueled heaviness as a nod to some of the recent music they’ve been working on for their next studio album.
The video of Benante jamming is a good sign that the group has returned their focus to completing their highly anticipated next album.
