HOUSE OF BLUES CELEBRATES 20 YEARS OF ROCKIN’ SUNSET

sunset-strip-vWe raise a toast today to House of Blues Sunset, which is celebrating 20 years of kicking ass on the world-famous Sunset Strip by bringing in some of the greatest rock shows around during its first two decades of decadence.

Aerosmith helped House of Blues Sunset kick open its doors with a show by the hit-making hard rockers 20 years ago today, April 22. Since then, the local hot spot in the heart of WeHo has hosted a rockin’ roster of local and international music artists. Further adding to its street cred, House of Blues Sunset is also the official host to the Sunset Strip Music Festival‘s annual pre-event kick-off party honoring SSMF’s honorees.

SAMSUNGSome of our favorite shows over the past two decades include Pat Benatar, Foo Fighters, 311, The Doors, L.A. rock legends XTenacious D, Jars of Clay, Goo Goo Dolls, Social Distortion, Steel Panther, local faves Warner Drive (right) and cheering on Motley Crue at the band’s 2011 SSMF event, to name just a few of the superstar artists that have lured us back to Sunset and Olive again and again.

To celebrate the milestone, House of Blues Sunset is offering a 20 percent discount at the hot spot’s restaurant and store.

HERE’S A GREAT REASON TO CRANK UP SOME GN’R TODAY…

Guns N’ Roses Appetite for Destruction celebrates its 25th anniversary today! The band’s classic debut album was released on July 21, 1987 and has since gone platinum 30 times — and counting. The Sunset Strip rock refugees are immortalized on the wall of the Rainbow Bar & Grill, the band’s old haunt and setting of some of their best music videos, including “Don’t Cry,” “November Rain” and “You Could Be Mine.”
