Hot off the heels of a successful tour of Spain, THE LAST VEGAS returned home to Chicago, Illinois on Tuesday only to learn that they would be packing up and hitting the road again to travel to Atlantic City, New Jersey to open for GUNS ‘N ROSES at the House Of Blues this Friday, February 24.
THE LAST VEGAS — who made history as the first band to win Guitar Center‘s On-Stage new music program when they were hand selected by MÖTLEY CRÜE at the world-famous Whiskey A-Go-Go in Los Angeles — was embraced with open arms by their legions of new fans in Spain and a portion of the video footage from that tour can be seen below. The band officially started debuting new songs live on “The Other Side Tour” in Spain and will do the same in Atlantic City.
After extensive touring with some of rock’s biggest acts (MÖTLEY CRÜE, AC/DC, BUCKCHERRY, NEW YORK DOLLS, PAPA ROACH) in support of their last studio release, 2009’s “Whatever Gets You Off” (Eleven Seven), THE LAST VEGAS returned to their hometown of Chicago in 2011 to record new tracks for the follow-up album with Grammy-nominated producer Johnny K (DISTURBED, MEGADETH, 3 DOORS DOWN, STAIND, AIRBOURNE) at Groovemaster Studios. The as-yet-untitled CD is finished and will be released through as yet-unannounced label partner in 2012.
THE LAST VEGAS released a new EP, “Other Side”, last November, both digitally and on a limited-edition CD. A video for the EP’s title track was produced by, and stars, legendary Hollywood scream queen Sybil Danning (“Howling II”, “Halloween”, “Werewolf Women Of The SS”) and can be seen below.
THE LAST VEGAS has released four albums (2004’s “Lick ‘Em And Leave ‘Em”, 2005’s “Seal The Deal”, 2008’s “The Last Vegas” and 2009’s “Whatever Gets You Off”) in the USA and Europe and toured over 19 countries.
