The setlist was as follows.
"Choir Of The Damned" (Intro)
Legendary rock band, Tesla, have released a lyric video for "Time To Rock" (Live). The band will be releasing a live album this summer that will include "Time To Rock" plus others, all recorded at Full Throttle Saloon in Sturgis.
Tesla will be celebrating 36 years of entertaining audiences around the world with a 5-night residency at the House Of Blues in Las Vegas, Nevada. The residency will begin on Friday, March 17.
After the release of the album Eulogy For The Gods, Serbian heavy metal force Claymorean, fronted by the vocalist extraordinaire Dejana Garčević, is ready to unleash the newest piece of music called By This Sword We Rule: A Decade Of Steel.
This monumental edition will span across the first decade of the band's work, carrying 15 songs in total and clocking at 76 minutes of pure epic power metal.
Swedish heavy metal power force, Kardinal Sin, heave released a new track from their forthcoming album, S.A.L.I.G.I.A, out in North American on April 7, and in Europe on March 3 via Massacre Records. The band's upcoming offering, S.A.L.I.G.I.A, unleashes ten complex songs as well as dark lyrics about the world situation now and then, and how we push humanity towards the apocalypse through war and environmental destruction.
Swedish power metal legends, HammerFall, recently announced their return to Nuclear Blast and celebrated a career milestone when it was announced that their albums Renegade, Crimson Thunder, No Sacrifice, No Victory and Chapter V: Unbent, Unbowed, Unbroken had all achieved gold status in Sweden.
Just before Christmas in 2020, legendary Canadian thrash metal quartet, Sacrifice, began streaming the demo version of a brand new song, "World War V". Shorty after, the band took the rough version of "World War V" offline and replaced it with a new, better mix.
And now, Cursed Blessings Record are set to release "World War V" on 12" vinyl. The release, scheduled to ship in late spring, will also be available in a VIP Bundle, and a Record & Cassette Bundle.
Speaking with Gator 98.7 FM’s “Gator Garage”, Newsted opened up about his latest musical endeavours and his return to heavy music.
After re-tooling his long-running bluegrass-based group The Chophouse Band to feature elements of metal, Newsted is now going full-on heavy with two new as-yet-unnamed projects.
Fantasy symphonic power metal band France's Avaland will be releasing their sophomore full-length The Legend Of The Storyteller due out on March 31, 2023 via Rockshots Records following their 2021 debut Theater Of Sorcery.

Swedish metal band Narnia release the single "Rebel", which is the opening track on the upcoming record Ghost Town, the band's ninth studio album.
"Rebel" showcases a seasoned and still hungry five-some that musically gives a nod to the band's earliest influences, and should appeal to longtime fans. A follow-up tour is planned, and Narnia is ready for huge steps into a new, exciting chapter.
With only a few weeks left until the long-awaited reissue edition of Blackmore's Night's debut album, Shadow Of The Moon (1997), the band's delivers another exciting foretaste with the launch of the 25th Anniversary Mix of "Play Minstrel Play", available as digital single.
