The Dead Daisies Announce ‘Dirty Dozen’ North America Tour
The Dead Daisies will spend the summer on a world tour in support of their upcoming concert album Live & Louder. The North American leg for the supergroup will consist of 12 dates and they're naming it after the classic movie, The Dirty Dozen.
“We're all very excited for our very first North American headline run," singer John Corabi said in a press release. "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!!!”
The band includes Corabi, guitarist Doug Aldrich (Whitesnake, Dio), bassist Marco Mendoza (Thin Lizzy, Whitesnake), drummer Brian Tichy (Ozzy Osbourne, Foreigner) and guitarist David Lowy. Their most recent studio effort, their third, was last year's Make Some Noise. Live & Louder, which was recorded on that tour, will be released May 19.
You can see all the dates below. The Dives, whom they met on last year's Kiss Kruise, are slated to serve as the opening act on all dates. Tickets will go on sale to the general public this Friday, April 14. Check the band's website for full information.
