Joe Elliott Added to Season Premiere of ‘That Metal Show’
As previously reported, the show's 14th season — set to premiere tomorrow in its new 9PM time slot — will make room for a diverse assortment of stars that includes Ace Frehley, Mark Farner of Grand Funk Railroad and Marky Ramone, as well as John Petrucci of Dream Theater; members of Tesla, Thin Lizzy, Anthrax and Slayer; Zakk Wylde, Michael Schenker, Alice Cooper guitarist Nita Strauss and Quiet Riot drummer Frankie Banali, among others.
Elliott joins a season-premiere lineup that's already scheduled to include an appearance from Geddy Lee, and will also mark the debut of new That Metal Show announcer Leslie West, who announced his addition to the cast with a Feb. 19 tweet.
West isn't the only new addition to the show. In addition to a new time slot and a fresh round of guests, the 14th season of That Metal Show will also unveil some new decor on the set, as revealed earlier this week on its official Twitter account.
"The metal crowd is the most loyal audience ever and they have found That Metal Show all over the world. It’s great to hear feedback about our show from South America, Mexico, New Zealand, and Australia," co-host Don Jamieson told Pop-Break. "People have found us and if they liked us, they stayed loyal this entire time. ... We’re going to make this a killer season. It’s going to be really great."
