Soundcheck Live Presents: The Hired Gun Pre-PremiereCome Celebrate the pre-Premiere of Fathom Events and Vision Film’s Cinema Event, “Hired Gun: Out of the Shadows, Into The Spotlight”

In preparation of the highly-anticipated release of “Hired Gun: Out of the Shadows, Into the Spotlight” – a full-length feature detailing stories of the world’s unsung music industry heroes responsible for some of the most famous instrumentation on chart-topping albums around the world – coming to select cinemas nationwide for one-night on Thursday, June 29.

Millions of fans have seen and listened to these “hired guns” and now is the time we pay tribute with a pre-premiere party and ‘high octane’ set featuring a few “guns” themselves–plus, members of Bon Jovi, Alice Cooper, Billy Joel, Ozzy Osbourne and more!

SOUNDCHECK LIVE is a weekly live music night that brings together some of the industry’s top musicians alongside emerging talent to create a vibrant social experience driven by the artists.
