From Black to Unblackened: BLACK LABEL SOCIETY Deconstructs For A Unique One-Night-Only Engagement at LA’s Club Nokia
Hard rock legends Black Label Society, fronted by guitar icon ZAKK WYLDE, have announced Unblackened, a one night only concert at Club Nokia in Los Angeles, California on Wednesday, March 6th at 9:00pm. The show will feature intimate versions of some of the band’s most popular songs, as well as songs from Wylde’s best-selling solo album Book Of Shadows and Southern rock band PRIDE & GLORY. The show will feature Wylde on guitar and piano, alongside the members of Black Label Society, as well as a four-piece string section, pedal steel, and special guests. The concert will be broadcast live exclusively on AXS TV. A CD/DVD will be released later this year.
“This is something we haven’t done yet, and we wanted to give our fans something new,” said Wylde. “You can take a song that you’ve played thousands of times and rearrange it, and all of a sudden it’s something totally fresh. The attitude of the songs doesn’t change when we play them acoustically – the tunes are gritty regardless.”
In August 2010, Black Label Society released their eighth studio album, Order Of The Black, which entered the Billboard 200 at No. 4. The release featured two singles, ‘Parade Of The Dead’ and ‘Crazy Horse’. The band then released their ninth studio album, The Song Remains Not The Same, in May 2011, which was a compilation album featuring new, acoustic versions of songs originally released on Order Of The Black. The album reached No. 41 on the Billboard 200.
Club Nokia is located at 800 West Olympic Boulevard. Tickets start at $28.50, and go on sale Friday, January 11th at 10:00am PT.
