Virtually every hard rock/metal bands from the mid seventies to today.

Alice Cooper were pioneers in the field.

Metallica's Hetfield got blown up in Montreal the night of the famous G&R riot.

I like when AC/DC rolls out the cannons during " For Those About to Rock , We Salute You " It might be the same thing all the time but they are great at what they do !

Are cannons considered pyro ?

I like when Artie Lang imitates Brian Johnson " FIRE !! "

One of the best things I saw was

They did the whole Third Stage Tour.

The light rig dropped from the rafters and looked like the back of the spaceship, at the start of "We're Ready" then into "The Launch" the smoke and piro starts the place was deafining( spelling) and ends with "My Destination".

AWESOME! or here in Boston "Wicked Awesome!"

Yep seen lot's of them

Most recent show with pyrotechnics I've seen was one I took my son to



Insane Clown Posse are a cartoonish metal/rap band with a vaunted live show that featured open fires, chainsaws, liters of soda dousing the audience (Faygo being the group's favorite brand), and more emphasis on performance art than the performance of music.

What we do for our kids !!!

LOL, Yeah he has a very wide variety of taste. Right now he's on a Zappa, bluegrass, classical kick. In the car with me he's been listening to dTb and he does appreciate Derek's slide work. He's 16, never know what he's gonna be listening to. At 16 I was already a ABB fan !!!

. . . If it wasn't for this second post, I was thinking about calling the Department of Child Protective Services on you!

Anyway, re the main topic: I couldn't care less about special effects like pyrotechnics and lasers, and even about set design, really. I like the guys who put out the guitar pyrotechnics.

I believe Guns N' Roses used pyrotechnics in the 90s.

I was so close to the stage at a September '04 Metallica/Godsmack show in Pittsburgh I could clearly feel the intense heat from the flames shooting skyward.

An awesome show no doubt.

One of the pioneers of Pyro.........

Arthur Brown :


1968

"I am the God of Hell Fire," screams Arthur Brown as he sails down from high above the stage, flames streaming from the helmet which rests on his shoulder-length black hair.

The act continues in the same anarchic, violent way. Arthur moves awkwardly, his tall, very lean, apparently hipless body swaying stiffly. He calls his group "The Crazy World of Arthur Brown." Which is fair comment. They are.

But, suddenly, after a year in the wilderness they have achieved commercial success with their current release 'Fire,' which is burning up the charts like the Hell Fire it's all about.

Their music is different, owing little to any tradition of British pop. It creates audience involvement by generating fear, and having created that involvement, relaxes, transferring emphasis to the words rather than the music.



Because Arthur Brown believes he has something to say.

Meeting him after seeing the act is a surprise. Arthur is not wild, or extrovert, or aggressive. The opposites fit him much better.

Arthur is married, has been for four years, and is 24. He's soft-spoken, reflective and concerned. He was studying law at King's College London, but was thrown out at the end of his last year.

"I failed the exams and was rude to my tutors," he said. "I spent the next year doing dozens of odd jobs - everything from dishwashing to sewage work."

Then he decided to go to Reading University to study philosophy, and it was there he saw the light... and the stars and moon as well.

"It was the mystical and religious side of philosophy that I found the most interesting," he said.

"I realised that the sun and the moon and the stars weren't just there; they affect you emotionally. You've got to take them into account.

"Americans have been measuring these rays and it's been proved they affect you."

So, starting with his interest in the occult, Arthur began to think out his own life. And in doing this he came to think more and more about relationships with other people, and other people themselves.

"All religions have got lost," he said. "I tell my fans: 'Know yourself, dare to be yourself, help others and, above all, don't be afraid.' Fear is the most cancerous growth in society."

If you are sceptical of these not wholly original thoughts of Brown, the fans aren't.

"When we were in America," said Arthur, "I had kids coming up to me and asking for my help."

"I told them: 'I can't tell you how to live your lives, but if you want to come along with us and see how we live, you're welcome.' And lots of them did."

Arthur Brown's stage act has developed now so that he includes his message in the performance. He doesn't actually stand up and preach, but the lyrics of the songs, all written by Brown, contain the message.

He doesn't find the violence in the act in conflict with his ideas of peace and fraternity. He is not a hippy.

"There is violence in life," he said. "That's where the San Fransisco people went wrong - they closed their eyes."

His first LP was called "Fire," the next will be "Water." Earth and air will be featured later and the stage act will be modified according to the current theme.

A clever gimmick? Well, yes, but when he's rich Arthur Brown plans to spend the money on his fans.

"I want to build huge fun palaces," he said. "They will be huge spheres with music, films, plays and every kind of entertainment going on inside.

"Now, there's nothing for kids to do."



1967....Arthur before Alice Cooper, Kiss or King Diamond

--------------------------------------------------
and speaking of the King...whom I'm a big fan off :

The King without his makeup :


and with :




I'm always ready for some Pyro with the King...with his own band and Mercyful Fate....

See em whenever I can....always a Great Metal Show !

You can't blame Great White for what happened. The owner of the club is held responsible. I remember seeing a 20/20 special and it showed a video where a Kiss cover band had played that club just a few weeks before Great White did. The owner claimed he didn't allow pyros but the video showed different.

Hard to place the blame on anyone totally. I think fire in a small club is rather stupid on all accounts. At the big shows, they have experts dealing with fire/explosions and the fire dept. is also on hand.

I will admit that some bands I played with used smoke/dry ice at shows where we knew the bar frowned on it.

When I was a teenager, somebody told us about using salt petter and sugar to create smoke. They forgot to mention that it is toxic also. We tested it outside and were blown away with the results. Controllable smoke and lots of it. That weekend we were playing in a YMCA gym with about 300 people there. We kick off our set with "Toys In The Attic" with four of these smoke bombs set at one time for maximum effect. Five minutes later the place is cleared and the fire dept is in charge. Shortest set I ever played. Luckily a bunch of stupid guys didn't seriously hurt anyone. We still have a laugh about it. You couldn't even see the stage after 30 seconds. Straight out of Spinal Tap.

Not just the inconsistancy about using pyro but it
Would have been a much difference result had they used fire code rated sound insulation instead
of that cheap foam.
