CKY And Clutch On Bam Margera's Viva La Bands Tour 2006

After executing a successful 5-date mini-tour last year Bam Margera's Viva La Bands Tour 2006 is being planned. As of now, Clutch and CKY are confirmed and Turbonegro is rumored to be in negotiations as well for the planned 20 date outing. There will be a number of after-parties featuring other bands and rotating some emerging artists at different shows.

The tour will feature exclusive Bam themed video content on big screens (Jackass-style stuff) produced by Tim Glomb. There will also be special live appearances from the Viva La Bam crew and many of their celebrity friends.

The Viva La Bands 2006 tour is tentatively scheduled to kick off on October 4th in Phoenix and end with a big Halloween bash in Philly on October 31st. Ticket prices are expected to be kept low (around $20). There will be numerous opportunities for fans to meet Bam and the bands, and it will all be caught on film.

CKY is an awesome band and they are awesome guys, very fun the hangout with. Clutch is a great band too. This would be one of my dream shows. The UK got CKY and Clutch together, and I'm happy the US is getting some shows with both of them too.

Yeah...I mean, I LOVE metal and everything, but wouldn't it be so close-minded and hypocritical to shut out any type of music that's not "metal"? Then, all that you're doing is pledging allegiance to a genre that loves to act like they don't adhere to a genre. Clutch are one of the best bands around. I've seen TONS of live shows and no body has ever conveyed the intensity that Clutch have. I'd figure that a metal-head who is well-educated in other styles of music would appreciate the fact that Clutch are a very hardworking band that uses no special stage antics and they change their setlist up almost EVERY NIGHT. Like I said, I love metal but you can only claim your set for so long before you become a close minded musical elitist and that's what metal's NOT about. How do you think metal came around? The kids that had strange tastes in music in high school grew up to be trailblazers. Motorhead. Judas Priest. Metallica. Iron Maiden. Black Sabbath. Music comes in different styles so we can mix our influences, no matter how strange they may be, and come up with a new style. Change isn't always bad. And cKy? Guys, seriously. cKy is a great and original band. Skaters don't hate on your music. Don't hate on theirs. Do you really think that Iced Earth would be where they are today if they gave up based on being different? I'm not a huge fan of Bam's but I think that he's doing music a good service by putting this tour together. I will f*cking be there.

taking themselves seriously and that's refreshing unlike

cky f***ing rock!

they're an original band who don't rely on image to promote themselves. ok i agree that bam has given them a bit of a boost.. as he did with him.. but cky would've gotten there eventually, especially with the high quality of music they're making now! him, on the other hand rely heavily on image and the fact bam likes them.. cky have succesfully distanced themselves from bam.. him now rely on him more than ever with the bad music they're releasing these days.

and bam's an egotistical f*** who's making a bomb off all these little f***s who "think bam's hot" and "sooo kewl". shut the f*** up and find yourself some taste! cky shouldn't have agreed to do this tour, them, clutch and turbonegro are better than this. let him and bam tour the us, sucking gooch!

One point of this thread is correct; Neither Clutch, cKy, Turbonegro, or HIM are metal. Despite what you assclowns think, they are all f***ing amazing. Clutch hearkens back to a more blues inspired rock, like AC/DC. Turbonegro is straight deathpunk, like a homosexual Misfits. Anyone who says cKy sucks should listen to Infiltrate; their new sh** is kinda lame, but Infiltrate is classic. As for those of you who speak sh** of HIM, perhaps you enjoy listening to Cannibal Corpse while f***ing your boyfriends a$$ in a tub full of pig vomit, but for some of us who happen to be... dare I say it... romantic... HIM is orgasmic.
