The Taste of Chaos tour will return in the fall of 2006 and initial details are coming to light. The International Rockstar Taste Of Chaos 2006 tour is the only Worldwide Lifestyle Music Tour. "The event combines great musical artists with lifestyle concourse activities." This year the international tour will be playing in 12 countries. The 2006 International tour has attracted a stellar lineup of Taking Back Sunday, Thursday, Anti-Flag, Underoath, Senses Fail, Alexisonfire, Saosin and many more.

As with last year’s tour the smaller local stage will be reinstated to showcase the talents of local acts in front of thousands of fans.

In 2005 the inaugural international indoor music festival was a runaway success with Taste of Chaos shows in Australia, Japan, UK and Germany attracting in excess of 100,000 fans. In response to the demand we have added 8 additional countries this year.

Devised by Kevin Lyman (Founder of the Vans Warped Tour), John Reese, President of Freeze Artist Management and Darryl Eaton of Creative Artist Agency, Taste Of Chaos was developed to cater to a largely ignored legion of young fans with non-mainstream musical tastes and give fans six hours of varied entertainment for an affordable ticket price. "The demand from fans all over the World has been overwhelming. We are excited to expand to more countries and bring fans a great show." states John Reese

The International Rockstar Taste Of Chaos 2006 will see the continuation of Rockstar Energy Drink’s naming rights association of this year’s United States and Canada Taste Of Chaos tour. The company makes its first foray into International markets with this tour.

The tour will be presented by HURLEY (One of the World’s premier lifestyle apparel makers) while Ernie Ball and PETA will continue their on-going relationship with the event.

Partnerships from 2005 will continue this year with Triple J, Channel [V], and Bombshellzine all committing to the Australian leg of the tour. Also on board, for the first time, are Blunt Magazine and Myspace Australia. In New Zealand Groove Guide and C4 TV will join the fold. Kerrang will be involved in the UK version of the tour. Additional sponsors will be announced soon.

External to the main arena areas, each Rockstar Taste Of Chaos show will feature a selection of kiosks which offer gaming, artist signings, prizes, product participation and displays and promotions ensuring Rockstar Taste Of Chaos becomes an event, not just another concert.

Tickets to Rockstar Taste Of Chaos 2006 go on sale in Australia on Friday 30 June at 9am local time. For more information on specific country on sales and which bands are playing go to: www.rockstartasteofchaos.com
