Rocker Elijah Black Moves From Motley Crue Opening To New York Stage Opening

Elijah Black spent twenty years as a rocker opening for groups like Motley Crue, Kings X, Styx, Neil Young, Cinderella, Ratt and Jackyl when he and his band wasn’t headlining their own shows.

Known as one of the hardest working musicians on the touring circuit, the Akron Ohio native is now focusing on opening night of the New York stage production of Lorey Hayes’ Massinissa: And The Tragedy In The House Of Thunder.

Black portrays Hamilcar Barca father of Hannibal in the Two-Act, epic love story detailing the defeat of Hannibal by the Romans.

This is not Elijah’s first acting gig. You might have seen him as a Visigoth for Capital One’s Viking commercials. Mr. Black also appears in the feature film and psychological thriller “Bruiser”, which is due out in 2012.

Elijah and his very powerful band Peace Tree will be releasing the 3rd CD entitled BAD DREAM in 2012.

Above, Elijah talks about his experience in his debut stage performance in Lorey Hayes’ Massinissa: Tragedy In The House Of Thunder. Below you can see and hear Elijah performing with his band.

Take a look and listen to both. I’m sure it won’t be enough so make sure you buy a ticket to Lorey Hayes’ Massinissa: Tragedy In The House Of Thunder which will be playing at The Poet’s Den starting December 7, 2011′ running through the 18th of December.
