Dir En Grey

Oh well. Probably for the best. Under recommendation of Dir En Grey frontman Kyo’s physician after extensive examination of his vocal cords, the Japanese rockers have regretfully canceled their participation in “The Still Reckless Tour” and solo shows scheduled between March and April 2012.

And it’s not half bad. OK, half of it is bad. But the other half is good. Who is on the bill? Mastodon, Megadeth, Down, Lacuna Coil, and Cypress Hill, for starters. That’s a good time. You know you still get down to “How I Could Just Kill a Man.” Rock On The Range’s sixth […]
