Rockstar Soundtrack Alumni: Fall Concert Calendar

Posted on September 20 2012, 10:46am | Author: R* W | Filed Under: Music, Rockstar

In the wake of our summertime post cataloguing seasonal concert appearances by notable Rockstar soundtrack alumni, many of you had some specific special requests you asked us to track down in the future (a special shout to Richie.Rich_96, VinewoodTits and others). Our latest edition for the early fall season includes some of those along with many others you've heard in Rockstar games new and old as we encourage you to get out there and experience some great live music from just a few of our favorites. Of course, we also encourage you to do chime in in comments with any other appearances you may know of, requests for other soundtrack artists you'd like to see in future roundups, or with your own experiences from perhaps having personally attended a summer show.

Here's a selected fall lineup with shows all over the North America, Europe, and Australia including all of HEALTH's upcoming tour dates along with events from Max Payne 3's Emicida and Trouble & Bass, Red Dead Redemption's Jose Gonzales, Grand Theft Auto IV's Crookers, Max Cavalera, Iggy Pop, Jeru The Damaja, DJ Premier, Philip Glass, and David Rodigan, Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars' Turntables On The Hudson, and Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas' Parliament and the Funkadelics and Toto.

Now Available at Rockstar Warehouse: The Long-Sleeve Colors and Rolling Tees

Posted on August 21 2012, 6:01pm | Author: R* W | Filed Under: Rockstar

Rounding out this season's collection of new tees at the Rockstar Warehouse are two new long-sleeve joints perfect for those transitional months: the bright, white Colors design, and the heavy, black edition of the Rolling style. Read on for more apparel details...

 

Bright and white with a crisp, classic athletic feel - each color that spells out Rockstar Games down the left arm of this long-sleeve tee pays homage to Rockstar Studios.
 
Constructed from 100% cotton, the clean styling of the white long-sleeve Rockstar Colors Tee also features a blue Rockstar Games logo on the chest.
 

The long-sleeve, heavyweight edition of the lighter Rolling raglan 3/4 baseball tee we released earlier this summer.

Inspired by the heady rock & roll vibes of the 70s, this one is a bit more Black Sabbath than Creedence Clearwater Revival.
 

Catch Rockstar Soundtrack Alumni Live in Concert

Posted on August 10 2012, 11:13am | Author: R* W | Filed Under: Music, Rockstar

Especially for all Rockstar fans who've been turned on to new (or classic) artists in the soundtracks to our games throughout the years, and who'd love to get the word on when some of these acts are hitting your local stages, we present the Rockstar Soundtrack Alumni concert calendar -  a selection of notable artists who've appeared in our games and where you can catch them locally over the coming month.

Noire Tools and Clues Collection and more. So if you've been looking to get your hands on collectibles from your favorite five-star case file, or just need a fresh L.A.

Congrats to RiotReady & Ccssrr, First Two Social Club Members Cast as Upcoming Max Payne 3 DLC Character Faces

Posted on August 6 2012, 10:34am | Author: R* W | Filed Under: Games

Thousands of Max Payne 3 fans over the past month have been jumping in to the Social Club Multiplayer Playlists, ripping up the competition for the chance to have their likeness appear in as a gang avatar in one of the upcoming Max Payne 3 DLC packs - and we're proud to announce the first two confirmed members of this exclusive quartet of online assassins.

Argentinian PC player Cesar Aguirre (aka Ccssrr at the Social Club) was spotted shredding the Multiplayer maps with his dual-weld M10 and M972 SMGs. As a true-blue member of the public Payne Killers Crew, Cesar will be helping to represent South America and shall be appearing as a custom avatar with signature eyebrow-piercing intact.
 
Our second selection convinced us that he would be the perfect wing-man for just about any Game Mode that required decisive action. Jeremy Wallace aka RiotReady is an Xbox 360 player and New Hampshire USA native, with the hard look of a grizzled action-hero or menacing villain. Online, Jeremy's been proving his mettle citing preferred use of the Sneaky Burst, Flashbang Projectile and credit to his Master Of Arms accuracy with the G6 Commando.
 
We are busy selecting and confirming the last two faces as we speak - so if you participated in the July playlists, watch your inboxes - and stay tuned for those announcements here at the Newswire, including info of which Pack these grills will appear.

Get the Rockstar Machine & Rockstar Rolling Tees at the Warehouse

Posted on July 16 2012, 2:15pm | Author: R* W | Filed Under: Rockstar

Just added to the Rockstar Warehouse for sale are two brand new designs in the Rockstar tee collection - first seen earlier this week over at our newly launched Rockstar Instagram photo feed (look for the other two styles shown there to launch soon as well).

Browse the Rockstar Apparel collection at the Warehouse and check out high-detail on these two new Rockstar originals fashioned from 100% breathable cotton perfect to style up your summer wardrobe. Grab 'em while they last or before your size sells out - more detail below...


In soft, light blue, there lies the "Rockstar Machine", a bizarre and surreal musical instrument, carefully and painstakingly constructed from vintage clip art. 
 
At the bottom left of the Machine, a child plays the Wurlitzer, music flowing all through the elaborate mechanisms. At the opposite end of the star formation, musical notes are played in concert by robot hands on a keyboard of cats. The hands squeeze the cats and the musical notes from the little girl’s Wurlitzer are translated into the beautiful sound of cat yelps. The Machine is powered by a living dinosaur skeleton on a treadmill and operated by men at the top, one of whom is being flogged for insubordination. 
 

Evocative of the highest of times - this take on the traditional baseball raglan is a unisex-style, soft, and lightweight Lake Blue / Navy tee.

It features ¾ sleeves and a vivid Rockstar Games logo inspired by funk hitting wah-wah guitars, stinging brassy soul and euphoric rock & roll.
 
Look for more designs in the Rockstar tee collection coming later this summer.
