An evening with STEVE VAI
Culture Factory Zagreb
STEVE VAI, musical innovator, visionary, producer and one of the world’s most famous guitarists, brings the INVIOLATE TOUR to Zagreb. He bridges the boundaries of instrumental music, and for the album he invented not only a new type of guitar with three doors, but also a way of playing it!
A virtuoso guitarist, visionary composer, and consummate producer who sculpts musical sound with infinite creativity and technical mastery, Steve Vai has awed fans of all genres with his exceptional guitar skills and musicianship for decades. At age 12, he started taking guitar lessons from Joe Satriani. At 18, he began his professional music career transcribing for, and then playing with, the legendary Frank Zappa. More than three decades, over 15 million in album sales, and three GRAMMY Awards later, Vai has proven himself, in his own right, to be one of music’s true originals.
Vai’s work has been recognized with a long list of awards and honors, including over 15 from Guitar Player magazine alone. His career accomplishments have earned him honorary doctorates from Berklee College of Music and Musicians Institute. The 2016 Long Island Music Hall of Fame inductee was voted the 10th “Greatest Guitarist” by Guitar World magazine and consistently lands among the best in various lists of the top guitarists of all time.

LAIBACH LOVE IS STILL ALIVE ZAGREB TVORNICA KULTURE FRIDAY 14.04.2023. Cult Slovenian music collective Laibach is returning to Zagreb, to Tvornica kulture, on Friday, April 14, 2023. The performance is part of the big European tour "Love Is Still Alive", and this winter, before the ZG concert, Laibach will perform in Scandinavia as well as in the Czech Republic, France, Germany, and Austria. The release of "Love is Still Alive" continues on "Iron Sky - The Coming Race" movie, which ends with the destruction of our planet and the Moon. Then begins the exodus of the last surviving Earthlings who are forced to look for a new planet to live on. They're aiming for Mars, but they're not sure they'll get there. The work follows a journey through the solar system, but it is also a journey through the musical genres of recent decades. The media for the release say that it exudes the vibe of old country or incredible hits and westerns. It was released as a sequel to the music from the film, and the band plans to release a video game on the same theme. In addition to the new material, Laibach will also present selected songs from the recently released albums, the theatrical project "Wir sind das Volk", as well as "Sketches of the Red Districts" on the tour. It will also include insights into upcoming projects, as well as a selection of Laibach classics from the early 80s onwards, and a special performance of Leonard Cohen's prophetic song "The Future", which also ended up on the list of the best singles of 2022 according to the influential The Quietus.

Za Hinklera će ovo biti prvi posjet Hrvatskoj sa The Mission pa će to biti prava poslastica za The Mission fanove jer je baš ta postava snimila sve najbolje The Mission albume i obilježila njihov najbolji period. Na žalost im se zbog lošeg zdravstvenog stanja nije mogao pridružiti i originalni bubnjar Mick Brown pa je na bubnjevima, također odličan bubnjar, Mike Kelly koji u The Mission svira od 2011. godine.
IRON MAIDEN will open the “FUTURE PAST” Tour on May 28, 2023 in LJUBLJANA!
Iron Maiden will perform songs from their latest album “Senjutsu”, along with iconic songs from the 1986 album “Somewhere In Time”, as well as other band classics!
To the great delight of Slovenian and regional fans, IRON MAIDEN will start its new concert tour, The Future Past Tour, on May 28, 2023, right in Arena Stožice in Ljubljana! IRON MAIDEN are thus returning to Slovenia 16 years after their last performance at the Bezigrad stadium as part of the A Matter Of The Beast tour. At this new heavy metal spectacle in the Arena Stožice concert hall, songs from their latest studio album “Senjutsu” will be heard live for the first time, with a focus on songs from the cult album “Somewhere In Time” from 1986 as well as other great hits of IRON MAIDEN.
Tickets are on sale from Thursday, November 10, 2022, from 10:00 a.m. at www.eventim.hr and at all sales and authorized Eventim points of sale. Before then, a special pre-sale will be available for all registered fans of the band on the Iron Maiden website from Tuesday 8th November 2022 at 10:00am. Ticket prices range from 50 to 110 euros.
Iron Maiden founder and bassist Steve Harris said: “Following the release of our last album, ‘Senjutsu’, we’ve given the current Legacy of the Beast tour a bit of an update by opening the shows with the first three songs from the album, with a ‘Japanese Palace’ backdrop. Because it there is no point in repeating for the “Senjutsu” album tour, we thought about other options and decided to revive the “Somewhere In Time” tour since it was not included in the various historical retrospective tours we had in the past. Those tours were based on concert videos from the 80’s ‘s, but unfortunately we didn’t have recordings from that tour (blame the manager!) Over the years, we’ve received many requests from fans for many songs from this album, so we’ll be playing them now, and of course a few more that we know you’ll like. ! We are also very pleased that we will finally be able to play some of the epic songs from the album “Senjutsu” that we have been waiting for for a very long time! 2023 will be an exciting year and we are very much looking forward to ret with the audience in Slovenia, where we last played in 2007 on the A Matter Of The Beast summer tour.”
The band’s manager Rod Smallwood added: “We find the combination of these two albums very exciting. We know that fans want to hear the epic songs from the “Senjutsu” album live for the first time and we think that combined with an iconic album like “Somewhere In Time” will create a truly special tour for fans old and new! Of course, for the tour of the new album in Europe, we will return mostly to the relative intimacy of arenas, and we know that the fans will be very happy about that!”
IRON MAIDEN recently finished their spectacular world tour Legacy Of The Beast, which was interrupted for two years by Covid. The tour began in Tallinn, Estonia in May 2018, the first of 139 concerts in 33 countries. By the final show in Tampa, Florida on October 27, 2022, the band had played to over THREE MILLION fans on this epic world tour.

In the present, it’s no different, as their current feature film, Immutable, says.
Poles Behemoth are extreme in extreme metal. A band that does not make compromises, that with every word and tone opens up new controversies in all areas of human existence, will present the current Opvs Contra Natvram live this year.
Both bands are preparing a superb performance and it’s almost a concert that you must not miss! A unique concert, where both bands meet on their individual tours and have the status of coheadliners, which means that both play the entire set!

40 years of Melvins in Zagreb!
Tvornica kulture, Zagreb // June 14, 2023.
One of the most influential and loudest bands of the American independent scene of all time, the indestructible Melvins, are coming to Tvornica kulture on June 14, 2023 as part of a tour celebrating 40 years of work.
The new meeting between the local audience and the Melvins after their 2015 guest appearance will take place during their European tour, where they are also promoting last year’s 25th studio album “Bad Mood Rising”. After 40 years, the band is still led by the legendary figure of the underground scene, guitarist and singer Buzz Osborne and drummer Dale Crover, who have been joined by bassist Steven Shane McDonald since 2015. Although they initially started as a hardcore punk group, their sound changed and expanded over the decades as they ranged from sludge and alter metal, noise, grunge, stoner, experimental and jazz rock, all the way to avant-garde music. However, perhaps the greatest legacy is the deep influence on the creation and development of grunge, which is why giants like Nirvana and Soundgarden, as well as many other bands from Seattle, put them in their musical role models. The Melvins strongly influenced other genres, so bands such as Tool, Sleep, Sunn O))), Mastodon, Lamb Of God, Isis, as well as musicians such as Mike Patton or Slipknot’s vocalist Corey put them on the list of their influences. Taylor.
In the 90s, there was a famous saying about the Melvins that everyone who attended their concert bought a guitar and started a band a day later. However, compared to most artists from Seattle, they have always remained deeply buried in the underground, outside of any commercial currents, but armed with a wall of noise that only gets stronger with age. Such is the new release, the acclaimed “Bad Mood Rising”, on which, in the 14-minute long “Mr Dog Is Totally Right”, they hosted Dylan Carslon from the group Earth.
Tickets for the Melvins concert go on sale on Friday, February 10 at 10:00 a.m. at a price of EUR 20. From March 12 to June 13, the ticket price will be EUR 23, and on the day of the concert, EUR 26. They can be purchased at Dirty Old Shop, Rockmark, Dallas Music Shop Rijeka, at all sales points and online at Eventim.hr.
