This is a venerable dream team of hard-rock/metal acts from a few decades ago, gathered on one concert bill for what promises to be a memorable night. Between the four bands, you have several of the biggest hits of the nu-metal/hard rock scene that launched in the mid-1990s.

Rob Zombie’s most recent album was 2021’s The Lunar Injection Kool Aid Eclipse Conspiracy, the latest in a long line of records infused with his singular spirit and twisted, Vaudeville-inspired metal.

Mudvayne hasn’t released a record since 2009’s self-titled album. Since going on hiatus, individual members have stayed busy with other projects, perhaps most notably vocalist Chad Gray, who has achieved great success among the hard-rock community with the group Hellyeah.

Powerman 5000 released The Noble Rot in 2020, and despite changing its sound since the days of “When Worlds Collide” in the late ’90s, the band (fronted by Spider One as always) has endured, remaining a heavy touring act around the country.

Static-X has soldiered in after the death of front man Wayne Static in 2014, releasing new material with previously unfinished Static recordings and touring in his memory.
