MT. CLEMENS – AEG Live presents Juliette and the Licks and The Donnas at the Emerald Theatre Sunday, August 10th. Tickets go on sale Friday, June 27th at 5 pm.
Led by actress Juliette Lewis, Juliette and the Licks released their first EP, Like a Bolt of Lightning, in 2004. It was shortly followed by the release of their full length album, You’re Speaking My Language. While touring in support of the album, their drummer was replaced by Nirvana alum and Foo Fighters head Dave Grohl, whose drum skills can be heard on their most recent album Four on the Floor. Since then, Juliette and the Licks may have gone through several member changes, but their solid sound creates a demand for tours and international performances around the world.
All four members of The Donnas met in high school in the late 90’s, and have continued to produce their estrogen-fueled rock since then. After releasing a few records on minor labels, in 2001 The Donnas signed with their first major label, Atlantic Records. In 2002 they released their Atlantic debut, Spend the Night and it was their first single Take it Off, that earned them mainstream popularity as well as appearances on shows including Saturday Night Live, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, and The Late Show with David Letterman. After parting ways with Atlantic Records, their 7th album, Bitchin, was released on their own record label, Purple Feather Records, in 2007
