For those about to rock, we salute you. With fans continuing to go through withdrawals from not being able to attend concerts during the pandemic, Long Live Rock… Celebrate The Chaos is here to slake their thirst.
The documentary celebrates the hard rock culture via the live experience. Filmed at various rock festivals throughout the U.S., including Louder Than Life in Louisville, Ky., and the Aftershock Festival in Sacramento, Calif., ⭐️the movie features interviews with members of Metallica, Guns N’ Roses, Korn, Slipknot, Halestorm, Greta Van Fleet and more, as well as talking to fans -- and even former Ohio governor John Kasich -- about their passion.
“A big part of what the film captures is the energy, the urgency and the chaos of a massive rock concert,” producer Gary Spivack tells Billboard. “So until we can all be shoulder to shoulder in a large grass field rocking out together, hopefully it will help ease the pain.”
The 80-minute film, distributed worldwide by Abramorama, will have its global premiere March 11 at 8 p.m. ET with a pre-order price of $9.99. Tickets are available at LongLiveRockMovie.com. The launch will include a Q&A with the filmmakers, musicians and other guests. The viewing price starting March 12 is $12. The official trailer debuts below.
So what's a culture to do when faced with such a troublemaker? When someone is too popular, too powerful, too talented, too demanding, too avant garde, too loud, too in your face and too larger than life? What are we to do with such an irritant, especially when he’s right? Silence him.Vilify him.Ridicule him.Make him irrelevant.Mock him.Humiliate him. Nullify him.Crucify him.Lock him up. Hamstring him.But above all—dehumanize him.
I was going to say if you want my $10 it better be an interview with Axl. Duff and Slash talk all the time. But after watching some of that footage of the fans, I might tune in just to see what the fuck some of that was. What was the divide and clash in the middle? Those big clear bubbles looked cool.
