Legendary Phoenix rock band ICON will perform as special guests in front of TESLA on Saturday, November 29 at the Dodge Theater in Phoenix Arizona. Tickets go on sale this Monday, October 20 at 10 a.m. at www.livenation.com, the Dodge Theatre box office and all Ticketmaster locations.
This will be the band's first performance since regrouping earlier this year; and their first performance since 1990. Since the release of its debut record, "Icon", in 1984, the group has sustained a committed and fanatical fan base that still thrives to this day. ICON claimed international recognition with its follow-up release, "Night of Crime", in 1985, voted third best record of all time by Kerrang! magazine's readers' poll in 1988.
The band's lineup consists of original members Dan Wexler (guitar), John Aquilino (guitar), Pat Dixon (drums) alongside new members Scott Hammons (lead vocals) and Ken Geraghty (bass).
Earlier this year, ICON, in conjunction with Epicenter Multimedia, released "1984: Live Bootleg" for the first time on DVD. This enhanced multimedia disc features interviews with Dan Wexler and John Aquilino and contains live footage of one of the last concerts with the complete original ICON lineup of Stephen Clifford, Dan Wexler, John Aquilino, Tracy Wallach and Pat Dixon. The band performs in front of a sold-out crowd in Albuquerque, New Mexico in 1984. This is the only known footage of an entire concert by the original band.
Video footage of Dan Wexler, John Aquilino and Scott Hammons making an appearance on the radio show "Headbangers' Heaven" on 93.3 KDKB can be viewed below.
