Rob Zombie to rock Paso Robles this summer
The multi-talented, hard rock visionary, Rob Zombie will perform at the Vina Robles Amphitheatre on September 17 at 8 p.m. Tickets go on sale Friday, June 13 at 10 a.m.
Since 1997, Rob Zombie has achieved great solo artist success with several multi-platinum and gold albums including Hellbilly Deluxe, The Sinister Urge and Educated Horses. In 2013, the seven-time GRAMMY® nominee released his fifth solo album, Venomous Rat Regeneration Vendor, on his Zodiac Swan label through T-Boy Records/UMe. The album debuted at No. 7 on the Billboard 200 and spawned two Top 10 Active Rock singles, “Dead City Radio and the New Gods of Super Town” and Zombie’s spin on Grand Funk Railroad’s anthemic “We’re An American Band.”
As a rock icon and filmmaker with a unique vision, Zombie has continuously challenged audiences as he stretches the boundaries of his music and films. Zombie has sold more than fifteen million albums worldwide, and is the only artist to experience unprecedented success in both music and film as the writer/director of six feature films with a worldwide gross totaling more than $150 million.
Zombie’s Halloween, released in 2007, earned the No. 1 spot at the box office in its opening weekend. Rob Zombie’s first concert film, The Zombie Horror Picture Show, was released May 19 by Zodiac Swan/T-Boy/UMe. The feature-length film debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s Music DVD chart and continues to hold the top chart position for its second week.
Recorded live over two sizzling nights in Texas, The Zombie Horror Picture Show captures Zombie’s elaborate, multi-media production of mind-blowing SFX, animatronic robots, pyrotechnics, oversized LED screens and state-of-the-art light show combined with his powerhouse band featuring John 5, Piggy D and Ginger Fish.
Tickets range from $30 to $45, plus applicable service charges. The Vina Robles Amphitheatre is located at 3800 Mill Rd, Paso Robles, CA 93446 (805) 286-3680.
