Hardcore Public Enemy fans in China, don’t attempt to kill yourself or your flat mate just yet. According to Beijing promoters, Public Enemy is not canceling their BJ Pop Festival appearance scheduled for the 8th of September. So put in your gold teeth, hang some bling around your neck and get your ass on a plane.
In other news, we have heard rumors, from a reputable Chinese music magazine, that metal gods, Megadeth, will be adding a few mainland shows to their Asia tour, scheduled for later this fall. Apparently it is being organized by Rock Empire, who are also bringing out Italian hair (yes, hair, not head) bangers, Vision Divine on October 5th.
