Very longtime HardRadio friends ARMORED SAINT will be heading down to South America for the first time ever. The shows are scheduled for June and include performances in Argentina, Brazil, Peru, Chile, and Colombia. The band is currently at work on a set list full of songs from throughout their entire catalog - it's an event not to miss for South American fans. Vocalist John Bush comments: "Finally!! Armored Saint brings its soulful heavy rock to the passionate continent of South America. I went to South America twice with Anthrax and can easily say that those were some of the best shows I did in my life. The rabid fans of places like Brazil, Argentina, Peru and Chile are die hards of music. Their enthusiasm is unprecedented. Also looking forward to going to Colombia for the first time. Can't wait!! The Saint's Latin roots should be in full force. It's a perfect match." Bassist Joey Vera adds: "After 35 long years we're finally going to tour in South America. The long wait was bitter, but the experience playing for you all will be oh so sweet. See you soon." Tour dates: June 2 - Buenos Aires, Argentina - Uniclub. 3 - Sao Paulo, Brazil - Fabrique Club. 5 - Lima, Peru - Discoteca Cocos. 7 - Santiago, Chile - La Batuta. 8 - Bogota, Columbia - TBC.

World-renowned photographer MARK "WEISSGUY" WEISS is offering the chance to bid on iconic photos he shot in February 1988 around the GUNS N' ROSES performance at The Ritz, a show that aired live on MTV in New York City. Says Weiss: "Also, check out my collaboration with artist Steve Lacy. We take my earliest photos of Guns N Roses and transform them into original pieces of art. A perfect way to add a little rock to your home or office." Visit Rock Scene Auctions at rocksceneauctions.com.
