DEAD DAISIES 'DIRTY DOZEN' US TOUR DATES ARE HERE 12th April 2017
MetalTalk Band Of The Year 2016 The Dead Daisies will play a dozen prime live North American dates in August as part of their 'Live & Louder' World Tour, in support of the release of their landmark 'Live And Louder' album which is released on Spitfire Music/SPV/eOne on May 19th.
'The Dirty Dozen' Tour kicks off in Chicago, IL on August 10th and will wrap up in Las Vegas, NV on August 27th. 'The Dirty Dozen' Tour is inspired by the classic 1960s movie of the same name. "Rehearse them, Excite them, Arm them - then turn them loose on the Fans!"
This is The Dead Daisies first North American Headline Tour and lead singer John Corabi told us:
"We're all very excited for our very first North American headline run. We're kicking it all off on August 10th in Chicago and ending it in 'Sin City' Las Vegas.
"You guys have been amazing with all of your support and requests for shows here, so we're giving it to you LIVE AND LOUDER and down and dirty on 'The Dirty Dozen' Tour 2017! See ya on the road kids."
Before 'The Dirty Dozen' tour, The Dead Daisies head out to play some of the most prestigious and high profile European Festivals, as well as a series of headline club shows and dates in Japan before they make their long-awaited debut in South America.
From South America it's back to Woodstock Poland to be part of a 'Concert Inspired by Freedom' which will see the band perform with a sixty-piece orchestra.
The 'Live & Louder' World Tour 2017 will visit the following countries: Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Denmark, Sweden, United Kingdom, Holland, France, Belgium, Hungary, Czech Republic, Japan, Brazil, Argentina, Chile, Mexico, Poland, Canada and USA.
Lead guitarist Doug Aldrich has some choice words about the upcoming live album:
"'Live & Louder' really helps define The Dead Daisies' sound. Like bands I've been involved with co-producing (Whitesnake and Dio), we have a great team that makes sure our sound is consistent and we are always looking to pump it up.
"Onstage I just play guitar but our crew and production team are very instrumental in capturing what happens on stage. Now get out there and go Live & Louder with us this summer!"
You can hear the very first radio play of a track from 'Live & Louder' on Steve Göldby Talks Metal at 4.00pm this afternoon, Wednesday 12th April on TotalRock or on this link.
Special Guests on this run will be The Dives, who the band made instant friends with on last years' Kiss Kruize.
