Product Description

The classic Key Club, LA show in 2000 from one of the most controversial bands on the planet - now on Madfish and on double heavyweight green vinyl

On April 22 2000 Blackie Lawless' W.A.S.P played an exclusive show to a packed Key Club in Los Angeles, California, and broadcast it around the world via the wonders of modern technology. The results were heard live, around the globe, by 10,000 lucky souls, with a further 100,000 people desperately trying (and failing) to log on at the same time.

'The Sting' is exactly what occurred that night in L.A. - an explosive performance from a band that continue to defy the hands of time and, in many ways, keep getting better. Madfish Records are due to release this classic on a 2LP gatefold limited edition 180gm green vinyl on 2nd June.

The set list from that infamous night includes a pile-driving 'Inside The Electric Circus' to a heroic 'L.O.V.E. Machine', a scintillating 'Animal (Fuck Like A Beast)' through to a peerless finale of 'I Wanna Be Somebody' and 'Blind In Texas', this is a raw and ragged greatest hits package; W.A.S.P. at their inglorious, insolent best.

Unlike many previous live albums, 'The Sting' has not been polished or tidied up .. this is the real deal; with all the onstage chaos and overdriven amplification that a real, blood and thunder live show can generate.

W.A.S.P are getting primed to remind audiences of their devastating live prowess as they are set to tour Europe during summer 2014 with club shows and festival appearances plus appearing at Hard Rock Hell VIII in the UK on 15th November

Format: Audio CD
"The Sting" is the third live album by W.A.S.P following "Live...In The Raw", and "Double Live Assassins".

I quite enjoyed The Sting, its a decent effort by one of the best heavy metal bands of all time. If you're expecting another live album like "Double Live Assassins" then dont. The Sting is a much shorter and much more raw sounding live album than its predecessor and is recorded in front of a smaller audience. The set list of 12 tracks is a resonably good set list with W.A.S.P performing classic songs such as "Chainsaw Charlie", "Wild Child", and "I Wanna Be Somebody", alongside songs from their album "Helldorado" which was the most recent W.A.S.P album at the time.

I would recommend that if you want to buy this album you buy it like I did in the double pack which twinned it with Helldorado. The advantages of that being that A. You get two albums for the price of one and B. Although "The Sting" is a good live album it doesnt quite hold up to previous W.A.S.P live efforts so if you dont like it you will still have Helldorado to fall back on.

Let me start by saying I have been a fan of W.A.S.P since the early eighties. For many years now I have heard lots of people complaining about what a control freak Blackie Lawless is, well people, here is what happens when Blackie DOESN'T have control over a W.A.S.P product. This album (and the DVD that accompanies it) were released by W.A.S.P's record company with little or no input into the finished product from the group themselves, and in my opinion it is THE worst album released under the W.A.S.P banner - EVER!

Taken from a live webcast in 2000, the sound quality is poor, (the picture quality on the DVD being to the same standard), in some places Blackie's powerful vocals can barely be heard, (again - same with the DVD) and the whole enterprise is an exercise in nothing more than proving Blackie's critics wrong! The CD and the DVD are not worth the money and in 25 years I never thought I would ever have to say that about a W.A.S.P product. My advice to anyone who is interested would be this: Dont buy a W.A.S.P CD or DVD UNLESS they are produced by the big man himself.

Great live album, but the sound is pretty poor

Chris Holmes was a GOD! 24 Oct. 2014
By acquavinyl - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Vinyl Verified Purchase
This son-of-a-gun Chris Holmes will only be remembered for that dumb 'off the cuff' interview for that even dumber movie.
Always trying to bring out the dark side of L.A., aren't they?
This band was sooooo under-rated it's SICK!
Unfortunately, all the showmanship blindsided their talent.
AC/DC T-shirts and all those bands.....I've never seen a W.A.S.P. T-shirt in my life, except for ordering on the flyers on my original vinyl records.
You guys STILL rocked in 2000!
Thanks for letting this come out on DEVIL'S EYES GREEN COLORED VINYL.
The vinyl sounds fantastic, and the price was GOOD!

Cheers!

Not into metal but had seen "Sting Live" thinking that was the performer. My fault for not reading further.
