18 years and over
The Asylum is pleased to bring you Multi-platinum selling artist JACKYL. Touring to support their 2012 release Best In Show, Jackyl are specialists in down and dirty blue-collar rock and roll. Their legacy of wild, untamed and uncouth approach to rock 'n' roll is well established. The band hit the scene in 1990, and immediately began firing off rock radio hits like "Down On Me," "When Will It Rain," "I Stand Alone," and most notably, "The Lumberjack" during which Dupree performs a chain-saw solo which led to the band sharing the stage with Aerosmith, Kiss, ZZ Top, Ted Nugent and Damn Yankees. AC/DC's Brian Johnson would go on to lend his vocals to the track "Locked And Loaded" which still stands as his only contribution outside of AC/DC recordings. The band has earned two Guinness Book of World Records citations and the designation "The Hardest working Band in Rock 'N' Roll" for performing 100 shows in 50 days as well as 21 shows in 24 hours. Staying true to their working band roots, Jackyl maintains their commitment to every show being the sonic equivalent to a man being shot out of a cannon. Jackyl has been enjoying an upswing in popularity as a result of their involvement with the TruTV hit series Full Throttle Saloon.
