W.A.S.P. leader Blackie Lawless commented on the return home to The Wiltern in Los Angeles: “W.A.S.P. and Armored Saint started 40 years ago in Hollywood. We made our bones there, and were leaders of that now-legendary ’82 and ’83 Hollywood metal explosion that would go on to shock the rock world. I can think of no better way to end the 40th-anniversary tour of the U.S, for both bands, then to end this tour where we both started.
Sentimentality aside, this show won’t be just a gig; this will be a once-in-a-lifetime, historic landmark event! Hollywood’s prodigal sons are coming home.’
Armored Saint bassist Joey Vera said, “40 years ago, we stepped onstage in Hollywood and shared the wild club experience with W.A.S.P. In 1983, both bands had a hand in bringing this new genre, heavy metal, to Los Angeles. And now we’re back at again like it was yesterday, except this time we’re playing the legendary Wiltern Theater. This will be a night to remember.”
Armored Saint singer John Bush said, “Super excited that the W.A.S.P. – Armored Saint tour is coming to the awesome Wiltern Theater. The Wiltern is one of my favorite venues in L.A. Every show is a memorable one. I expect this one to be more of the same. Let’s sell it out, Los Angeles.”
