New Shows: Black Label Society Coming to PHX in April

It's not often that a bassist leaving your band can make you somehow much more popular, but that's just what happened to Black Label Society. Of course the situation wasn't exactly normal, what with Robert Trujillo leaving the band to join The Beatles of Metal, Metallica. Soon after Bobby T left, the band fronted by Ozzy's old guitarist Zakk Wylde took off, with their shirts appearing everywhere at metal shows.

So, anyway, that (hopefully) interesting aside our way of pointing out that BLS is coming to town in April. What other shows were announced this week? Click the jump for the rest of your announcements and a BLS video. --Martin Cizmar
