Following the initial announcement that Chester will join Kings of Chaos in Las Vegas for three nights, the band has added four shows on the east coast. This mini-tour will now consist of seven total shows between Las Vegas and the northeast.

 

The new dates are as follows:

 

2016.12.01 Las Vegas, NV, House of Blues
2016.12.02 Las Vegas, NV, House of Blues
2016.12.03 Las Vegas, NV, House of Blues
2016.12.17 Montclair, NJ, Wellmont Theater
2016.12.18 Huntington, NY, The Paramount
2016.12.20 Boston, MA, House of Blues
2016.12.21 New York City, NY, Irving Plaza
2016.12.22 Verona, NY, Turning Stone Resort & Casino *JUST ADDED*
The posts from the band indicate that Chester will performing some or all of these songs: "She Sells Sanctuary" and "Firewoman" by The Cult, "Rebel Yell" by Billy Idol and "Vasoline", "Sex Type Thing" and "Interstate Love Song" by Stone Temple Pilots.

On the 16th and 17th, Royal Machines was hosting their "Royal Machines & Friends Christmas Shows" at The Roxy, where Chester was rumored to join them. However with the addition of these shows, it can be safe to assume that he will not be at those performances.
All of Chester's guesting appearances, both past and present, can be found here.

So I guess, the three Vegas shows and the rest of the dates are two different entities after all.
Corey just isn't playing the "East Coast tour".

There's currently no poster to list the additional Verona show, just a promo picture:

Matt Sorum: What we do is everybody who comes and plays brings with them some of their best songs, which they’ve written or been in a band with that has written those songs. What people are going to see are a lot of hits.

All great songs from a catalog of all these members from all these groups played by a set of characters. It’s not a cover band because it’s guys from those bands. I don’t consider it a cover band — I consider it a catalog band.
[...]

I just want people to come out and completely immerse themselves in the fact that it’s going to be hit-driven shows. There is not going to be one song they don’t know. It’s going to be the greatest rock show on Earth!

So I guess, a couple of Linkin Park songs as well.

He also says the band will rehearse for just a couple of days.

Wow, I'm way more excited for the Boston show now. I hope there are definitely some LP songs in there.

I guess "One Step Closer" would be their number one pick.

It's possible Chester will just stick to his relation to STP, though.

 

Damn, I was assuming that since Linkin Park is Chester's band and STP isn't that he might do a few LP songs. If they do OSC that would be really cool, he did it with Camp Freddy in 2012, etc and OSC sounded pretty good to me. I'd love to hear some LP songs at this show.

No offense but it sounds terrible when other bands cover OSC or LP songs in general. It's like I said after ROTR 2015, a substitute guitarist just doesn't work when it comes to LP. You need Brad, Rob, etc...they have a unique sound. Hard to describe but LP is really a great sounding live band.

 

I think it'd be good to play Sex Type Thing, Vasoline, etc. Chester is a monster on those songs.

No doubt they'll be doing various STP songs since Robert DeLeo is there as well and we know Chester loves doing STP songs. But I do hope we get OSC as well, I'd like to hear it.

Which other LP songs do you think Kings can nail?

 

There are tons of LP songs that don't have rapping in them, especially from MTM-THP. They probably wouldn't do any non-singles though and probably would only do maybe 3 or so if they were going to do any, IMO. OSC, GU. Since this is basically a rock super group of sorts, I think debuting a song like War off of THP would be doable and cool, but I don't think they would. I can't see them doing any LP songs that have a lot electronic elements or anything.

Kings Of Chaos though is something I'm genuinely excited to see and they're playing in my home state. Chester says not to call them a supergroup, even though it says supergroup on the poster for the shows, but it will be cool to see a lot of legendary musicians in one place with Chester.
