Legendary band Tool have announced their first AUS/NZ headlining tour since 2002. But they have skipped the City of Perth to the dismay of many Tool fans living there.
Perth would easily be able to accomodate a Tool gig in the newly opened Perth Arena, and more than likely be able to sell all the tickets.
Every year in February and March, the Soundwave Festival tours Australia, bringing much-anticipated international and national bands to our shores for one day of hardcore excitement. However, due to scheduling conflicts, many of the festival's punters are unable to see the bands they want. In fact, hundreds have voiced their displeasure in the timetable on various platforms.
To solve this situation, we, the 300,000+ strong fanbase request that, to accommodate for these horrific clashes and the disappointed and saddened fans, the curfew be reconsidered for the festival in it's 5 states. As ticket holders, we feel that we should be able to see the bands we want without having to make a heart-breaking choice. The festival is, for many, the only way to see these bands, so you could (hopefully) understand the frustration and sadness that arises from these bands clashing.
We ask that you please consider lifting the curfew to the fair suggestion of midnight. If the show were to run a mere 2 hours longer, many of these clashes would not only be resolved, but bands would be able to play longer sets for their high-paying, loyal fans.
Note from Sarah-Jane: I, myself am attending Soundwave with my special needs sibling and a friend who legally blind. I will not feel safe with punters running between stages between acts for my sibling and friend. I feel the curfew raises safety issues. A longer timeset would ensure more bands could play in the one allocated spot. Additionally I am worried about the crowds forcing their way to the front of stages after other acts at different stage locations causing fights and drama.
Note: This petition is directed at the council and venues of the Soundwave events (excluding sideshows). We fully support and appreciate Soundwave staff and what they do for their fans.
SEGA made Shadow the Hedgehog in in 2005 for PS2, Xbox and Gamecube.
The game's story, Soundtrack and concept was a great success amongst Sonic gamers and casual gamers alike.
But sadly, the game had a few bugs, which made the game hated by hardcore gamers, and made fun out of it.
The story has ended in the first game, but we know, there IS a way to make the storyline continue.
Bon Jovi is an American Rock Band that throughout their career has:
*Released eleven studio albums, three compilation albums and one live album, and has sold 130 million records worldwide.
* They have performed more than 2,700 concerts in over 50 countries for more than 35 million fans.
* Bon Jovi was inducted into the UK Music Hall of Fame in 2006.
* The band was also honored with the Award of Merit at the American Music Awards in 2004;
* Songwriters and collaborators, Jon Bon Jovi and Richie Sambora inducted into Songwriters Hall of Fame in 2009.
We want Bon Jovi to be added to the music greats that grace the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as he is their colleague, peer, and Deserves the Honor!
Only 10% of the inductees into The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame are women. Just not fair.
The Rochester, New York music scene is rich with rock roots. Listening to all the "new" rock music is just stale. Bring back metal and hard rock to the airwaves, much like The Nerve had done.
Anyone who wants to bring life back to the radio, sign this petition to be sent to FQMB, the leader in Rochester's radio management.
I'm starting off this petition as a huge and epic request not just from a huge metallica fan but a fan of metal. I run and organise a rock/metal night at DeBees Music Bar in a small town of Winsford, Cheshire, UK and i am opening up this offer to James, Lars, Kirk and Robert to play this venue before taking the stage at the Download Festival, Donington, UK.
You may have heard this from thousands of fans from around the world but at least acknoledge this petition to say yay or nay, i don't have much money but will do ANYTHING to make this happen, so please respone to the e-mail address and will give more info on request.
The Sleeping Beauties were a short-lived rock band, based in Canberra. The three piece band dabbled in a select range of influences and sounds, including psychedelic, blues and Japanese noise rock, their lyrics flirting with surreal images of frustrated and demented figures.
The Sleeping Beauties' revival awaits on the original guitarist's say-so. If you are at all interested in the band, wish the band to return to live performances, or merely wish to support us on a whim, please sign this petition. If you want any copies of our music, feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org . Visit our Triple J Unearthed website, http://www.triplejunearthed.com/TheSleepingBeauties

We've seen several bands such as Elbow and Snow Patrol take to the stage with the backing of a full orchestra in recent years. The results on many occasion have been mindblowingly good.
Arcade Fire are one of the finest instrumental bands on the planet and to see them perform live alongside a full orchestra would quite definitely be ranked amongst the greatest shows of all time.
This petition is for the any Jonas Brothers world tour and Demi Lovato's tour to come to Australia anyone can sign this petition i will send it to the Jonas Brothers and Demi Lovato.
Thanks for helping wish us luck cause its not a world tour without AUSTRALIA.
It is absolutely amazing and dismaying that the late, great Gram Parsons has not been inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame. As much as Hank himself, he influenced the form of music he loved most. He hated the term "country rock" believing it's either country or it's not.
GP was pure country, and influenced everyone in the field after his tragic death. It's unimaginable that he not be inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame.
[NOTE: All info you provide, which is minimal, is entirely safe and secure and will not be given to anyone else (that's why I chose GoPetition). It is safer than putting it on a paper petition. Thanks, Will James]
We've got their albums, we've got their dvd's, we love them, and we want them here in Australia again!
A7X came here in 2006 and both old and new fans want them back! They're touring USA this year, and the UK, why not come here too!
Airbourne's current series of shows around the globe have been a great success. Later this year they bring their show to their homeland of Australia for more dates.
Unfortunately as they embark on their Australian tour, they are leaving many fans from Western Australia disappointed as these dates do not include Perth.
This petition's aim is to gain enough support for Airbourne's management to consider bringing their show to Perth, Western Australia.

I like their music..... their music made a difference in my life.... And I would like to see them get an award for all their hard work.
I see them not only as musicians but also as artists.
The B-52s (originally formatted as The B-52's) can be considered a New Wave rock band, formed in Athens, Georgia, United States, in 1976. In their heyday, their music was marked by the female harmonies of Cindy Wilson (vocals) and Kate Pierson (keyboards, vocals), Ricky Wilson's (guitar) surf-style guitar, Keith Strickland's (drummer) "go-go beat" drumming, and the generally spoken word or sprechgesang male vocal counterpoint of Fred Schneider (percussion, vocals). The resulting unique "guy vs. gals" vocals, sometimes used in call and response style (as in their songs "Private Idaho" and "Good Stuff"), are a trademark of the band. Presenting as a positive, enthusiastic, slightly wacky party band, the B-52s have focused on songs telling tall tales ("Rock Lobster", "Girl from Ipanema Goes to Greenland"), glorifying wild youth ("Love Shack", "Deadbeat Club"), or celebrating wild romance ("Strobe Light", "Hot Pants Explosion"), all set to a danceable New Wave beat.
The correct name for the band had long been "The B-52's", but in 2008 they dropped the apostrophe, with their official website and Funplex album and single covers reading "The B-52s".
Kathi McDonald's landed the vocalist her first big professional gig when she was attending a concert and joined in as part of the audience. McDonald's powerful voice drew Ike Turner's notice in a club called the Winterland, and he invited the aspiring singer to his and Tina Turner's next rehearsal. McDonald had snagged a ...spot in the Ikettes, the Turners' backing group. It was a heady and magical beginning for someone who never had any formal lessons.
Born in Washington state in 1948, McDonald performed professionally for the first time around Seattle when she was 12 years old. At the age of 19 she set off for San Francisco and its burgeoning musical climate, where she met the Turners and, through her association with them, took the first step on a career path that would span more than four decades.
Not long after the evening at Winterland, her talent caught the attention of Big Brother & the Holding Company's Sam Andrew. McDonald threw her lot in with the band in 1969, leading to appearances on the albums Can't Go Home Again, How Hard It Is, and Be a Brother. She went on to sing with Mad Dogs & Englishmen for Joe Cocker, and later sang with Leon Russell's Shelter People. Her session work included recordings for such artists as the Rolling Stones, Nils Lofgren, Rita Coolidge, Delaney & Bonnie, and Dave Mason. Her work for other musical artists totals up to appearances on almost 160 albums, more than six dozen of which achieved gold status. In addition, McDonald also launched a solo career in 1974 with the release of the album Insane Asylum. The recording was arranged by Pete Sears, whose formal band associations include Hot Tuna and Jefferson Starship.
Insane Asylum featured performances by Tower of Power, the Pointer Sisters, Aynsley Dunbar, John Cippolina, Neil Schon, and Ronnie Montrose. Kathi did not release another solo effort for 20 years, when Save Your Breath appeared. Above and Beyond followed in 1999, featuring contributions from Lee Oskar on harmonica and Brian Auger on keyboards. McDonald devoted more than two decades to recording and performing in collaboration with Long John Baldry, and the duo scored with their version of "You've Lost That Loving Feeling" when it was released in Canada. The song reached number 2 in Australia and also made the US charts.
Aside from collaborative efforts Kathi has solo projects of her own: Insane Asylum(1974), David Briggs, producer of the second Alice Cooper album Easy Action and multiple early Neil Young discs is at the helm on Insane Asylum. With arrangements by The Jefferson Starship's Pete Sears, whose formal band associations include Hot Tuna this is a showcase for the chops and musicianship of McDonald. There's a terrific reading of the Bee Gees' "To Love Somebody" and an interesting first track co-written by McDonald and Pete Sears, "Bogart to Bowie," with Nils Lofgren on guitar and Bobbye Hall on percussion. The photos of McDonald on the back cover are chaotic and beautiful, a cartoon caricature of these adorns the cover, the illustration by Seiko Kashihara. With Ronnie Montrose on guitar and Pete Sears on keys for a heavy version of "(Love Is Like A) Heatwave," you basically have Big Brother & the Holding Company/ Montrose/Jefferson Starship covering Martha & the Vandellas. With what may be the best performance on the disc, "Threw Away My Love," the second Sears/McDonald original, Kathi's great, bluesy vocal fights and Journey's Neil Schon on guitar give the track tons of soul! "Freak Lover" features the late Starship violinist Papa John Creach and is appropriately manic for an album about insanity.
Willie Dixon's composition, "Insane Asylum," with Pete Sears and Nils Lofgren, is a blues workout deluxe. Neil Schon and Pete Sears accompany Kathi on a Peter Frampton tune, "All I Want to Be." Lofgren and Sears do a heavy cover of Neil Young's "Down to the Wire" for the singer to display her wonderful voice. There is an abundance of talent here, creating a nice platform for this important singer. Insane Asylum also featured performances by Tower of Power, the Pointer Sisters, Aynsley Dunbar, John Cippolina.
Her next solo project was Save Your Breath (1994), then Above And Beyond (1999) featuring contributions from Lee Oskar on harmonica and Brian Auger on keyboards. She reunited with Big Brother & the Holding Company in California for a concert on New Years Eve, 1997.
Her self-titled Kathi McDonald (2005) is a triumph in a long and prestigious career. This CD showcases the still incredible voice, timing, soulful delivery, and talent that is Kathi McDonald, the musician's choice as singer, the musician's musician, and still the biggest little white girl to ever sing the blues coming out of the West Coast. The main forces behind the CD, Pete Slauson and Ann Pierson (partners for years in the nineties at 2B1 Music, Maritime Hall, San Francisco, CA).
As an original Woodstock Survivor who sat in the mud with 500,000 brothers and sisters the weekend of August 15, 16, 17, 1969 I witnessed first hand the love , the sharing, and the sacrifice of those that attended. A half million people were galvanized in the mud together. Here the seeds of brotherhood and compassion were sown which healed this Nation.
It's time for us to return to these core values once more. a National Holiday will help us focus on what this histroric event has come to symbolize.
The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, since its opening, has constantly inducted artists that don't belong. Cher, Donna Summer, Run DMC, and Michael Jackson, just to name a few. Doesn't matter whether they're great or not. They're not Rock. That's why this needs to be fixed. Put them in the Pop, Rap, or Disco Hall of Fame, if there is one.
Blues gave birth to Rock, so Blues belongs. So, any member of The Rock Hall that is not an influential musician of the Rock or Blues genres, they will be removed. And, from now on, the people pick the inductees. And, they must be influential musicians of Rock or Blues genre. NO EXCEPTIONS!
It's called The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Let's keep it that way!
I have grown up in a family where music is very important part in our lives. The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Herman Hermits, Tom Petty, etc, are a few examples. Many great musicians of that kind come to Caesers Windsor.
I believe children should be allowed in to see concerts and events and I'll tell you why. The main reason children are not allowed into Caesers is due to the atmosphere of alcohol and gambling. Yet, there in NO ALCOHOL allowed in the concert bowl, during concerts. Due to this children should at least be allowed in to see concerts and events of many types, without drinking or gambling.
Many die-hard music fans, that are children, should have the opportunity of seeing their favourite artists, while they still can. Even if there are no children allowed in the bowl , it would be wonderful if they made an minors section, separate section, far away from any alcohol or gambling. So that die hard music fans-such as myself- can still have the opportunity to see many great artists. Thank You.
An cafe is a japanese visual kei rock band and they have been touring many countries. They consist of 5 members who are all funny and talented.
Having them come to australia would make many of their fans and future fanse very happy (nyappy). =D
Boy Kill Boy were an underrated English rock band who from 2004-2008 brought out brilliant and well-received songs such as 'Back Again' and 'Suzie'.
In their time, they recorded two superb albums 'Civilian' and 'Stars and the Sea', both of which didn't have a bad song on it. After their second album, the band fell out with their label Vertigo and later split up.
The rock band YES has been writing and recording music since 1968. They have toured the world relentlessly for over 40 years and are currently on tour. They have made many contributions to the art form and have been an innovative and inspirational influence on modern rock music through their 30 plus recorded releases. They have sold millions of albums/cd's and millions of tickets for their live performances.
It is about time that the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction selection committee give serious consideration to rewarding this hard working and influential band by giving them their rightful place in the R&R HOF.
A legend and visionary in the music business, radio personality Charlie Tuna is probably the most recognizable voice to have every graced both the radio airwaves in Southern California and Armed Forces Radio. In his over his 40+ years on the air, he has worked for more stations and formats than anyone in the history of radio. He has managed to raise nearly 2 and half million dollars for Children’s Hospital in L.A. with his annual “Tunathon” in past years and has done over 6,000 shows for Armed Forces Radio.
It was his childhood hero in his hometown of Kearney, Nebraska, the late, great radio announcer Jack Lewis, who inspired him to follow in his footsteps and get into the music game. He began his career in radio at age 5; and worked later at age 16 in his hometown’s radio station KGFW. He later went on to work in Wichita, Kansas, had a brief stint in Oklahoma City, and later went on to Boston in early 1967. His charisma and unmistakable voice got him noticed and in 1967 he landed a gig at 93 KHJ “Boss Radio” in L.A. Later he moved on to station KBIG 104.3 where he was the top-rated and much-loved morning show host of the show “Charlie Tuna in the Morning”. After a format change there, Charlie went to work for the well known L.A. oldies station, “K-EARTH 101,” where he can be heard on the weekend. Charlie Tuna is an amazing L.A. DJ and the music’s pretty good too. If you live in Southern California or wherever you live tune in! It will bring back some wonderful memories.
Tuna received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame January 10, 1990. He was inducted into the Nebraska Broadcasters Association Hall of Fame, August 19, 1999. Later in 2008, was inducted by long time friend Larry Lujack, into The National Radio Hall of Fame in Chicago, USA.
He sometimes sidelined as the TV announcer for various shows including; the “Mike Douglas Show”, Time Machine, Scrabble, Scattergories, The $25,000 Pyramid, The Quiz Kids Challenge, and The New Battlestars. He was also featured in the Universal film “Rollercoaster” and the independent film “Racquet”.
There is a very good reason that Mr. Charlie Tuna should be inducted and it is that Mr. Bo Diddley, (the late), thinks he should. Actually he puts Charlie Tuna right up there with Alan Freed and they (Diddley & Freed) both belong to the RRHOF CLUB! Mr. Diddley's exact interview stating the case for induction of Charlie Tuna into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is spelled out by clicking on the following link:
Or from Charlie's website, http://www.charlietuna.com/
view it under TUNA CLIPS, Favorite moments from 40 years of Charlie Tuna Shows in Los Angeles, on the bottom of the page(11), last entry titled:
From (1992) Charlie's visit with the late music legend & friend Bo Diddley
Posted by Charlie on 06/02/2008 @ 11:15am
To quote Bo Diddley in that interview…”I want to thank Alan Freed, Charlie Tuna, you guys is the ones that launched us by playing our music”… and Charlie’s reply …”It’s the roots of Rock 'n’ Roll, that’s what it’s all about."
It's an amazing interview!
As Hot Tuna, Jorma Kaukonen and Jack Casady have attracted a long and compelling roster of musicians, each of whom has brought their own unique talent and all of whom have served to keep this band's sound fresh and relevant for a full 40 years.
So far, this musical odyssey has produced 21 albums, legendary epic performances and loyal followers across several generations of listeners. These accomplishments warrant acknowledgment by the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame with their nomination and induction of Hot Tuna into their ranks.
This is not the first petition for a music band to reunite. In fact, there is currently another petition running for Led Zeppelin to reunite; it is our opinion that the more support Led Zeppelin receives the greater the odds of success. The other petition, able to be signed on "youchoose.com" has claimed to be in contact with the band manager - if this petition has success, the manager of Led Zeppelin will be informed of the new petition, and a tour of Led Zeppelin will be requested.
This petition is for those who would like to see Enter Shikari come to Croc Rock in Allentown, PA to play an amazing show. 100-300 signatures and Enter Shikari is likely to come play!
