Rockstar Alumni Concert Calendar: Special Vice City Edition

Posted on November 20 2012, 2:33pm | Author: R* L | Filed Under: Games, Rockstar, Music

As we throwback to the 80s in a Vice City state of mind celebrating the game's 10th anniversary and forthcoming mobile release, here's a special edition of the Rockstar Soundtrack Alumni Concert Calendar compiling a list of places and dates where you can catch notable artists you've heard in our games perform live.

It's great to see so many of these legendary artists still so actively touring around the world, so whether you had your dial locked to Flash FM, Wildstyle Pirate Radio, Wave 103, V-Rock, Fever 105 or Wave 103 - there's bound to be a nostalgic favorite act out there from the Vice City radio waves to catch coming your way. Peruse the below list we've put together that covers dates into early 2013 from the East Coast to the West Coast, across Europe, Australia, South America and more. Do shout in comments if you're aware of any other soundtrack performances we missed, experience some live music from the decade of excess and revisit a time when wearing neon was un-ironic...

                    @RuslanMga09 I thought that these are Music Artists that we have heard in the R* games. And i can't remember that METALLICA was in a R* game. So that's why i think METALLICA is not on the list.

                    But Dave Mustaine the lead singer from MEGADETH is a old gitaar player from METALLICA in the begin time from this band. So we have a little bit from METALLICA :)

                    @scareface1970 Dave Mustaine is a FOUNDING member of Metallica, but he suffered a massive drugs issue, as did the band, RIP Gar S., however, Metallica, infamous over Napster with Lars Ulrich probably were not enthusiastic about any licensing of their hard work. I don't come down on Metallica for that, but there's always a chance one of their songs would wind up in a game with street cred like GTA!
                  • scareface1970on November 21 2012, 2:32pmReplyFlag
                    @MetalMofo-Bill .Yes i know the story from Dave Mustaine, METALLICA they had put him out of the band because of his drugs, alcohol abuse and violent behavior.

                    Let's hope we hear some from METALLICA in GTAV that would be great. I follow this band from the begin time 1981.
                    They formed the band in 1981 METALLICA is a band that has grown with the debut studio album, Kill 'Em All first named (Metal Up Your Ass) but the record label would not release an album with that name And they made great songs like: Seek and Destroy, Ride the Lightning, Master of Puppets and they made a realy great song One.

                    So maybe we hear music from this band on a radio station in GTAV

                  Yeah, For me, Vice City and the Houser initiative to take the plunge with licensed MUSIC was and shall be one of those CAN'T MISS assets of Grand Theft Auto, however, like a lot of people, I think you nearly did MISS with GTA IV, so hoping GTAV brings back the magic that SA and Vice offered for licensed tracks. Hopefully you saw the fan recommendations on the GTA fan sites?!?! Bring UFO and Michael Schenker into the GTA World already!!!

                    I love Vice City soundtrack, Flash FM and V Rock is in my mind! I don't knew, that on PS2 version is a extra song on Flash FM. It perfectly fit into game climat.
                    Now after bunch of news from GTA V, R* can take care about upcoming Vice City for mobile and tablet devices. I hope you'll release it in 2012 ;)

                        @R*K Yeah these these articles are always good.
