Too Little, Too Late…

The New York Dolls opened the show for Poison and Motley Crue at SPAC on a recent Saturday night. Those that know their rock history understand the door that the Dolls opened in the early ’70s, led to the success of hair metal bands like Crue and Poison in the late ’80s. Motley Crue acknowledged that debt – in the fashion of U2 to B.B. King or Keith Richards to Chuck Berry – by giving the Dolls a 40-minute, 7pm-start opening set as a token nod.



Here’s a Concert We Never Thought We’d See at SPAC…

Would you believe… the New York Dolls?

That’s right, David Johansen and the Dolls will be rumbling into the Saratoga Performing Arts Center on Saturday, July 23.

Of course, there’s a hitch – the Dolls will be opening the show for the co-headliners Poison and Motley Crue.

And, oh yeah, the tour is tentatively titled Glam-A-Gedden 25.

More details to come…
