The tour will feature support from blues-rock guitarist Jared James NicholsJOHN 5 says, “Get ready for the Invasion tour! I will be playing some new songs from my new record, Invasion, a brand new medley, and much more. I’m really excited to have Jared James Nichols out with us. This tour is something you’re not going to want to miss!”

Jared James Nichols adds, “As a young budding guitarist, I grew up with a Guitar World cut out picture of JOHN 5 on my bedroom wall. He was always one of my ‘Guitar heroes’. He is the total package… insane technique, amazing musicality, with a style and look all of his own. Needless to say, when I got the call for this tour, my jaw dropped. I’m absolutely honored to warm up the stage for him every night across America and Canada. I’m getting my chops ready to tear it up!”

He goes on “I do this because I love playing guitar, really no other reason, I just love playing for you” The next song is from our upcoming album due out in January, it’s called “Zoinks” followed by the “Nut Jam” and “Behind the Nut Love”.”

[REVIEW] John 5 and The Creatures deliver a “kick-ass great show” at The Forge in Joilet, IL

John 5 and The Creatures Famous Monsters Tour 2018

John 5 and The Creatures Famous Monsters Tour 2018

On November 1, John 5 and The Creatures took their #FamousMonstersTour show, with Hellzapoppin’ Circus Revue and Wednesday 13, to Illinois. They played a show at The Forge in Joilet.

On hand to watch the show was Go Venue Magazine and they have written a review of the evening.

“Going through riff after riff the energy of the crowd continued to increase song after song. In unison, the fans start lurching back-and-forth and thrashing together. The energy of this place increases and the smile on John 5‘s face, even underneath all that stage make up, grows exponentially. I have got to say this guy really enjoys what he does and brings an energy to any space he occupies. It is simply enthralling to experience.”

Tonight boils and ghouls, John 5 and The Creatures start their FAMOUS MONSTERS tour with special guests Wednesday 13 and Hellzapoppin Circus Revue. Ahead of the show, which will take place at The Blue Note in Harrison, OH, John had a phone interview with ONSTAGE REVIEW who asked John questions such as his favourite TV there tune (and what was the first one he learnt to play), his early bands in school, keeping the name John and Mozart; “You know, I love Mozart. I love the story of Mozart and he was a REAL…they say he was the only REAL genius in…you know, the history of man because of the fact he was doing all these things as a baby, as a kid, you know, as like a 4 year old, a 5 year old, a 6 year old.

He also clears up how a throwaway joke comment made by best friend Nikki Sixx, suddenly became an internet rumour, then a number of articles….. “You know, me and Nikki are like best friends … we’re just … always says funny, silly things, you know, on Instagram in our comments … so he was just saying that on the Instagram comments.”

John 5’s debut solo album ‘Vertigo” is 14 years old

John 5 Vertigo

On August 31, 2004, John 5 released his very first solo album to the world: Vertigo.

The album was a mixture of the infamous Drop-D tuning style 5 was already known for, and his love for Bluegrass. The different styling brought a whole new type of fan to John 5’s work as well as enthralling existing fans who appreciated the different styling.

To celebrate, please watch the GOD IS CLOSED official video which was released at the time. Originally sitting at john-5.com, the video, which features “live” performances from John 5 on a number of tracks from Vertigo amongst a number of vintage movie/TV clips, was then available to purchase via the Japanese version of Vertigo.*

*Please excuse the low-quality of the video. We had to track down a copy of it ourselves, and rip it from the CD, to put back up online. 

Enjoy the video and let us know what your thoughts were when you first heard the album in the comments section (click “Read more” to leave a comment >>> (more…)
