Iconic Los Angeles rock radio station KLOS-FM and legendary Sunset Blvd. nightclub The Viper Room will join forces with L.A.’s hottest new rock band, Dirty Honey, for “Lockdown Live at The Viper Room,” a global pay-per-view concert event set for 7:30 p.m. (PDT) on Friday, July 24, 2020.
Tickets are priced at $9.55; log on to dirtyhoney.veeps.com for purchasing info.
This event will mark Dirty Honey’s first-ever performance at The Viper Room, an intimate venue that has presented shows by Johnny Cash, Bruce Springsteen, Courtney Love and Hole, Green Day, Red Hot Chili Peppers, and The Black Crowes.
“Over the past year, we’ve played a lot of smaller clubs while coming up, all of them affected by Coronavirus, so we’re really happy to have this opportunity to play at the Viper Room,” said Dirty Honey’s vocalist Marc LaBelle.
“Dirty Honey has risen from the streets of Los Angeles to having two #1 rock radio records,” stated Keith Cunningham, Program Director, KLOS-FM. “At a time when fans need real musical experiences more than ever, KLOS encourages our Rock Radio brethren across the country and around the globe to get the word out and support the first ever streaming event from the legendary Viper Room on the Sunset Strip, Lockdown Live, featuring Dirty Honey.”
Dirty Honey’s set list is expected to draw from the band’s self-titled, self-released debut EP, including their first two smash hit tracks, “Rolling 7s” and “When I’m Gone.” The band – LaBelle, guitarist John Notto, bassist Justin Smolian, and drummer Corey Coverstone – will also perform some brand new songs that they plan to record for their next release.
“This is our first time hosting a livestream from The Viper Room,” said the club’s General Manager Tommy Black, “and pairing with Dirty Honey and KLOS is a perfect situation.”
To say that 2019 was a breakout year for Dirty Honey would be an understatement. Recorded in Byron Bay, Australia with producer Nick DiDia (Pearl Jam, Rage Against The Machine), the band released its self-titled debut EP in March 2019. Over the course of the last year-plus, Dirty Honey opened for The Who, Guns N’ Roses, and Slash ft. Myles Kennedy & The Conspirators, performed at more than a dozen major summer festivals including Welcome to Rockville, Louder Than Life, Heavy MTL, Rocklahoma, Sonic Temple and Epicenter, and played to SRO crowds at every show on its first-ever headline tour in December and January & February this year.
Dirty Honey also made music history when it became the only unsigned artist ever to hit #1 on Billboard’s Mainstream Rock Chart with its debut track “When I’m Gone.” Additionally, the band was named Canadian Rock Radio’s #1 International Breakout Artist of 2019, The UK’s Louder/Classic Rock magazine hailed Dirty Honey as one of the “20 great bands to shake up the 2020s,” and the band is nominated as Best New Rock/Alternative Artist for the 2020 iHeartRadio Music Awards. “Rolling 7s,” Dirty Honey’s second single, went all the way to #4 at Rock Radio, and the band has racked up more than 30-million total streams.
