August 2, 2016 — Twisted Sister’s highly anticipated DVD release, TWISTED SISTER: METAL MELTDOWN LIVE AT THE HARD ROCK CASINO LAS VEGAS – A CONCERT TO HONOR A.J. PERO, has debuted at #1 on Billboard’s “Music Video Sales” chart.
Released July 22 via Loud & Proud Records in association with Rock Fuel Media and directed by Brian Lockwood (Bon Jovi, Metallica, Motley Crue), the retail package includes both Blu-ray and DVD formats as well as an audio CD. TWISTED SISTER: METAL MELTDOWN LIVE AT THE HARD ROCK CASINO LAS VEGAS – A CONCERT TO HONOR A.J. PERO features a complete concert filmed at The Joint at the world famous Hard Rock Casino in Las Vegas on May 30, 2015 as part of the kick-off to the first “Metal Meltdown” concert series, as well as Rockshow, a bonus documentary that takes fans through the band’s 40-year ride from local club outcasts to world domination with exclusive interviews, archive footage from the ‘80s, photo gallery. It was mixed in 5.1 Surround Sound. A trailer can be seen here.
Legendary, multi-Platinum selling rockers Twisted Sister performed an explosive 90-minute concert of their biggest hits spanning their 40-year career. The show was dedicated to the honor of Twisted Sister’s iconic drummer, A.J. Pero, whose tragic, sudden death just two months prior to the filming of this event shocked the music world. The band announced that not only were all the remaining concerts being performed in 2015 dedicated to the memory of A.J. Pero, but that 2016 would mark the 40th and final year of the band’s legendary live performances. They recruited renowned drummer and friend of A.J. Pero, Mike Portnoy (The Winery Dogs, Dream Theater, Avenged Sevenfold) to take the reins, and his very first Twisted Sister appearance was captured by the “Metal Meltdown” camera crew.
“This concert was performed in memory of our late drummer A.J. Pero,” says frontman Dee Snider. “To have it enter the Billboard charts at number one is further tribute to him. RIP A.J. Pero.”
As Twisted Sister guitarist Jay Jay French continues, “It’s amazing to have the memory of A.J. Pero honored with a Number One entry onto the Billboard charts and recognized with such a magnificent concert tribute. We can’t thank Mike Portnoy enough for his talent, support and sheer professionalism in stepping into such an important role and displaying such a love for A.J.’s history and the musical foundation that A.J. helped create and which the band has been built upon.”
While bassist Mark Mendoza exclaims, “”It’s about freakin’ time!”
“It’s truly an honor to have A.J. remembered an honored by this DVD concert debuting at number one,” concludes guitarist Eddie Ojeda. “I’m sure he’s up there smiling down on everyone.”

Def Leppard – “Viva Hysteria”

Def Leppard established a residency at The Joint in Las Vegas from March 22nd to April 13th. After hearing about the first couple shows and seeing the set lists, I decided to head to Vegas and check it out for myself!

I hit the road on Saturday, March 30th, and excitement grew as I drove closer and closer to Vegas and saw billboard after billboard advertising the show. During their residency, called “Viva Hysteria.” Def Leppard plays two sets a night. The first set is a surprise, and it changes every night. However, during the second set, they are playing their fourth studio album, “Hysteria,” in its entirety! The CD is the bands best selling CD to date, with over 20 million in sales, and seven hit singles.

Def Leppard is definitely a band that has bridged the generational gap. While waiting for them to take the stage, I looked around at the crowd and noticed that ages varied from at least seven to 70! The floor was packed, and both balconies were full with fans waiting with anticipation. The Joint holds 4000 people, and it looked like it was pretty much at capacity.

Seated, I listened to several rock songs play over the P.A. I have been to hundreds of concerts, and have never seen a band enter the stage the way Def Leppard did that night. As The Who’s song ‘Won’t Get Fooled Again’ was playing, the curtains opened, the song stopped, and Def Leppard picked up right where the song had left off! This was a very cool surprise.
