QUIET RIOT Plays First Show With Returning Singer JIZZY PEARL (Video)

QUIET RIOT played its first show with returning vocalist Jizzy Pearl on Saturday, September 21 at the Grand Rocktember Music Festival at the Grand Casino Amphitheater in Hinckley, Minnesota. Fan-filmed video footage of the concert can be seen below (courtesy of Tyson P Leslie).

As has been the case with several shows this year, QUIET RIOT played the Hinckley gig without drummer Frankie Banali, meaning that the band performed without any of the members from its classic lineup: Banali, singer Kevin DuBrow, guitarist Carlos Cavazo and bassist Rudy Sarzo.

Earlier in the month, QUIET RIOT parted ways with singer James Durbin and replaced him with Pearl. Pearl previously fronted QUIET RIOT from 2013 until October 2016, when he was briefly replaced by Seann Nichols, who played only five shows with the group before the March 2017 arrival of "American Idol" finalist Durbin.

Durbin reportedly left QUIET RIOT "to concentrate his time and efforts on his solo career.‬"

He recorded two studio albums with QUIET RIOT — 2017's "Road Rage" and the upcoming "Hollywood Cowboys" — during his three-year stint with the group.

Banali resurrected QUIET RIOT in 2010, three years after the death of founding member and singer Kevin DuBrow.

QUIET RIOT initially featured the late guitar legend Randy Rhoads and went through some early lineup shifts before securing the musicians that recorded the band's multi-platinum-selling 1983 album "Metal Health".

Bassist Chuck Wright has been a part of QUIET RIOT, on and off, since 1982, having initially been involved in the "Metal Health" recordings (he played bass on the tracks "Metal Health" and "Don't Wanna Let You Go"). Guitarist Alex Grossi was in the last version of the band, from 2004 through 2007, before Kevin passed away, and was asked by Banali to return in 2010.

QUIET RIOT went through two vocalists — Mark Huff and Scott Vokoun — before Pearl's first three-year run with the band.

"Hollywood Cowboys" will be released on November 8 via Frontiers Music Srl.
