Motorhead and Testamant at the Pageant in St. Louis, August 20 -- Along with an Insane Rumor...

Posted By on Sun, Apr 27, 2008 at 3:47 PM

Amazing what you hear when you go hang out in bars and drink, eh? For starters, Motorhead (with Testament opening; see our story here) will be playing at the Pageant on August 20. From what I gather, Motorhead has barely played St. Louis; a club appearance is even rarer.

[Update, Sunday night: According to my Motorhead uber-fan, here are the band's appearances in town. With dates.]

May 22, 1981 Checkerdome (support for Ozzy's 'Blizzard Of Oz' tour) July 25, 1998 Riverport Amphitheatre (headlining second stage at Ozzfest) May 14, 1999 Pop's (first true headline show in StL area ever) April 16, 2002 Pop's (last St. Louis area appearence)

No ticket info yet, but I do know it's an off-date of the two bands' arena tour with Judas Priest and Heaven and Hell. And why isn't the full package of bands coming here? Perhaps because the yet-to-be-announced alleged Nine Inch Nails show at the Scottrade Center is also on August 20.

Now, after the jump is a ridiculous RUMOR I heard. Again, I repeat, this is STRICTLY RUMOR. I don't normally spread around unconfirmed information -- I try to be a reliable source for shows and such, after all, and I don't want to look like an idiot -- but it was so insane and would be so amazing that I had to say something on the off-chance it's true...

Another legendary artist who hasn't played here in decades might be set to announce a show here -- or in this general region, perhaps -- very, very soon. Maybe even this week. He's prone to talking about St. Louis (and East St. Louis) in his lyrics, so perhaps it's time for him to finally come to town. I'd venture to say it would be like the second coming if this artist is gonna be here. Although, sigh, the waiting is the hardest part. And I'm not talking about Tom Petty...
