Multi-Platinum rock legends Extreme are celebrating the 25th Anniversary of Extreme II: Pornograffitti with a deluxe edition and will be going on tour in the USA as part of their ‘Pornograffitti Live – 25th Anniversary’ tour. The two-cd deluxe edition via UMe features rare mixes, b-sides remastered from original tapes and was released on January 20, 2015. The tour is taking the band through multiple cities in the USA and will be “An Evening With Extreme.” They will perform, in full, their multi-Platinum, top ten album ‘Pornograffitti’, in its entirety, including number one hit ballad “More Than Words,” Top 5 “Hole Hearted” and “Get the Funk Out” followed up by a greatest hits set.
Grammy-nominated Extreme, one of the most successful rock acts of the late 1980s and 1990s, have sold over 10 million albums worldwide. They have released six studio albums, plus a greatest hits set and a recent live DVD since their formation in 1985. The band had initially described their music as ‘Funky Metal’, but it would evolve much more in the mid-90s by blending classic rock influences with post-grunge and alternative rock.
Extreme’s popularity is fueled by guitar virtuoso Nuno Bettencourt’s signature style, Gary Cherone’s resonant vocals and socially conscious lyrics, Pat Badger’s rock solid bass, and the hard hitting Kevin Figueiredo on drums. Their unwavering song craft and diverse musical approaches have earned the band multi-platinum albums with chart topping hits and sold-out tours all over the globe.
