RICHIE KOTZEN Announces US Tour Dates
Posted by Michael Mueller on April 22, 2010 at 10:02 AM
Guitarist Richie Kotzen will hit the road on April 22 for a string of South American dates, starting in Goiania, Brazil, and then will make his long-awaited return to the USA, beginning May 10, in Orlando, Florida. It marks his first string of US tour dates in over a decade. He will be performing from his 17 plus solo albums along with various charting hits he wrote or performed with Poison and Mr. Big.
"I'm really excited about this new CD," Kotzen says of his latest release, Peace Sign. "I'm not sure how I did it, but somehow I think it has a really live sound, even though I'm playing all the instruments on all but four songs. I think it is because of the music I grew up on. Bands like Cream, The Stones, and of course Hendrix all had that 'live—create it on the spot' sound so I suppose that is the way I hear music."
To whet your appetite, here's the video for "Paying Dues," from Peace Sign. A full list of US tour dates is listed below the video.
VIP Packages are available on this tour. VIP Packages include one VIP ticket with early entry to the venue, attend sound check, a meet-and-greet with Kotzen, an autographed limited-edition tour poster, a commemorative laminate, a 2010 Peace Sign tour t-shirt, and a copy of Peace Sign.
