Kings of Chaos will return to the Grand Prix stage on April 15

The all-star rock collective Kings of Chaos will headline the Acura Grand Prix of Long Beach’s Saturday night concert on April 15.

The band, established by Guns N’ Roses drummer Matt Sorum, features a revolving lineup with special guests at their performances. The Long Beach lineup is scheduled to include vocalists Corey Taylor (Slipknot, Stone Sour), Corey Glover (Living Colour), Lzzy Hale (Halestorm) and Rome (Sublime), along with guitarists Gilby Clarke (Guns N’ Roses), Billy Duffy (The Cult), Vernon Reid (Living Colour), Brent Woods (Taylor Hawkins), bass guitarist James LoMenzo (Megadeth) and drummer Sorum.

Sorum, who was born in Long Beach, brought the Kings of Chaos to the Grand Prix in 2017 for a 90-minute show featuring hits from the various members’ bands.

The April 15 show will begin at approximately 6:30 p.m. on the plaza in front of the Long Beach Performing Arts Center. The concert is free to all Saturday Grand Prix ticket holders. Tickets for Saturday’s race start at $77 for general admission. You can purchase them online at or by calling (888) 827-7333.
