John 5

John 5 and The Creatures – led by Rob Zombie guitarist John 5 and rounded out by bassist Ian Ross and drummer Logan Miles Nix – are getting ready to unleash their new full-length effort, Invasion, come this summer. The band are currently on the road in North America on a lengthy tour with bluesy rockers Jared James Nichols and the gothy Dead Girls Academy in tow.

The ongoing jaunt invaded New York City for a completely sold out showing at The Iridium on March 13th. The performance saw John 5 and company dishing out brand new tunes like the riffy dance track “Crank It,” the ghoulishly vibey “Zoinks!” and the super fresh and futuristic shred-fest that is “I Am John 5,” which served as the set’s closer.

Fans lucky enough to snag tickets to the packed show were also treated to hits from John 5‘s back catalog, including numbers like “This Is My Rifle,” “Hell Haw,” “Here’s to the Crazy Ones,” “First Victim,” “Behind the Nut Love,” and more. No John 5 show in complete without cover tracks, and this time around the guitar great busted out a rendition of Michael Jackson‘s “Beat It,” along with spontaneous medleys and jam sessions towards the end of the night.

The Invasion tour continues through mid-April. John 5 is also confirmed to take part in Megadeth‘s ‘MegaCruise,’ departing in LA in October. Get all upcoming dates at this location.
