MT. CLEMENS, Mich. (October 21, 2017) – After a 94.7 WCSX pre-party at Bath City Bistro and a welcoming by Artificial Agent, Warrant blazed the stage of the Emerald Theatre in Mt. Clemens, Michigan tonight. Heavy-hitters since the 1980’s, Warrant has been headlining festivals, casinos, fairs and concert venues all over the country in support of their latest CD “Louder Harder Faster” which was released May 12, 2017.
Warrant’s has a signature style of rock that is still relevant all these years later. First formed in Los Angeles, California in 1984, after several lineup changes, they landed the talent we all know and love today. Joey Allen (guitarist), Jerry Dixon (bassist), Robert Mason, Steven Sweet (drummer) and Erik Turner (guitarist) make up the current roster. Robert replaced the late Jani Lane (vocalist) in September 2008 as lead vocalist, joining the other four original members.
Warrant is no stranger to success; over the course of their career, they have wrangled two double-platinum albums and three top-ten singles. Warrant has sold over 10 million albums worldwide. Diehard fans, young and old, were fortunate to catch an amazing show tonight as the band pumped out killer classics, as well as some new stuff.
Warrant played songs from their debut album, “Dirty Rotten Filthy Stinking Rich”; chart-toppers “Down Boys”, “Sometimes She Cries” and the enormous hit “Heaven”. As well as “32 Pennies”, “So Damn Pretty (Should Be Against the Law)” and “Blind Faith”.
We also got a taste of some tracks from their sophomore album “Cherry Pie” from September 1990 – “Uncle Tom’s Cabin”, “I Saw Red”, “Sure Feels Good to Me” and “Cherry Pie”. They played one track from their third album from 1992 their third album from 1992, “Dog Eat Dog” – “The Hole in My Wall”.
They ended the evening on a fantastic note – with a couple tracks released earlier this year – “New Rebellion” and “Louder Harder Faster” from “Louder Harder Faster”. This album was released on Frontiers Records, has been highly regarded in reviews and embraced by fans.
