John 5 and The Creatures to play one-off show with The Aristocrats

John 5 and The Creatures The Aristocrats

Check this out John 5 and The Creatures fans! The Creatures will be joining The Aristocrats to co-headline an amazing night of instrumental euphoria on Sunday, September 1 at 1720 E 16th Street- Los Angeles,. The show will be the first JOHN 5 performance following the July 31 release of the anxiously awaited new album, Invasion.

“JOHN 5 and The Aristocrats – It doesn’t get much better than that,” John 5 says. “It’s one show only and you’re not going to want to miss it. It’s going to be a very exciting night, and definitely one to remember.”

The Aristocrats are made up of three internationally recognized musicians: guitarist Guthrie Govan (Steven Wilson, Asia/GPS, Hans Zimmer), bassist Bryan Beller (Joe Satriani, Dethklok), and drummer Marco Minnemann (Steven Wilson, Joe Satriani, Steve Hackett). Says The Aristocrats,

“We always say that anything can happen onstage at an Aristocrats show – and that goes double for a JOHN 5/Aristocrats double bill! We’re psyched because The Aristocrats and JOHN 5 are obviously coming at the instrumental rock thing from just completely different angles, and neither one of us is playing it straight down the middle. Should be a fun night for anyone in L.A. who likes their music loud and bent.”

The opening act for the evening will be the popular rock-fusion trio Travis Larson Band.

Tickets and VIP (VIP on sale at the store does not include The Aristocrats) are on sale from TODAY!  For all ticket/VIP links, go to: john-5.com/main/tour/.
