Rock and Rumble Motorcycle Show

Rock and Rumble brings L.A. Guns and bikes to downtown Kitchener!

KITCHENER - The sounds of bikes rumbling down King St. and L.A. Guns tunes filling the air is like nothing Rock and Rumble visitors have experienced before!

 Saturday, July 27, from noon to 6 p.m., the bikes roll into town, and motorcycle owners and bike enthusiasts alike will be able to see bikes of all sizes, colours and makes, and listen to live performances by Curse the Witch, Bill Durst and the legendary sounds of L.A. Guns, whose hit songs, "Never Enough" and "The Ballad of Jayne," captured the rock charts in the '80s

L.A. Guns got their start on Los Angeles' Sunset Strip. The band was formed in 1986 and signed with Polygram Records in 1987, recording their first album that summer. This first album, titled L.A. Guns, went on to sell 750,000 copies and earned the band its first gold album award. Tours with rock heavyweights AC/DC, Van Halen, Poison, Iron Maiden and Def Leppard followed. L.A. Guns went into the studio to record their second album, "Cocked and Loaded", in the spring of 1989, pushing album sales over 1,000,000 and earning the band its first platinum record award. The video compilation from this album earned the band its second gold video award. The band's third album, "Hollywood Vampires", was recorded in the fall of 1990. The album went on to sell 700,000 copies and earned the band its third gold album award.  With more than 25 years' worth of noteworthy material, the band have proved to be true warriors of the '80s genre and are geared to tear it up to give audiences the high octane rock-n-roll that is L.A. Guns.

There will be unique "street eats" and some of the area's motorcycle insiders - from motorcycle magazines to industry suppliers - offer lots to see and do if you are a rider or just looking at the bikes.
