Fresh from supporting KISS across Europe and a stunning Download performance, The Dead Daisies announce UK headline tour December 2015

The Dead Daisies Destroy Europe, Excited To Announce UK & FRANCE Tour In December
New Album “Revolución” – Out Now

The Daisies have just completed an impressive European tour with KISS on the latest leg of their 40th Anniversary World Tour. Along the way, they left a pile of fans in their wake with monster sets at the largest rock festivals in Europe including Download (UK), Rockavaria (Germany), Graspop Metal Meeting (Belgium) and more. Kerrang! Was on hand and observed, “Sunday morning at Donington Park is rarely the most energetic of moments but The Dead Daisies all-star cast do a sterling job of banishing hangovers with slick-as-a-Vaselined-otter classic rock.” Witness the massive crowds and extensive video footage at the band’s website.

Following their massive success in Europe, The Daisies are excited to announce a run of UK shows and a special performance in Paris, France. The tour kicks off on Nov 27th in Paris, after a whirlwind media tour and show with KISS at Le Zenith left the Parisians wanting more. The band then heads to South Wales on December 4th to play the 3rd annual Planet Rockstock. The Daisies will be playing alongside rockers The Darkness and Danko Jones, amongst others at the 3 day festival of live rock ‘n’ roll hosted by Planet Rock radio. The band will be doing a special signing for the fans after each and every show so be sure to come along and say hi.
The Daisies’ powerhouse lineup for this tour will be John Corabi (Mötley Crüe, RATT), Marco Mendoza (Thin Lizzy, Whitesnake), Dizzy Reed (Guns N’ Roses, Hookers & Blow), Richard Fortus (Guns N’ Roses, The Psychedelic Furs), David Lowy (Mink, Red Phoenix) and Brian Tichy (Ozzy Obourne, Billy Idol).
“Been enjoying The UK Fans for a quite a few years now” says bassist Marco Mendoza. “I have a strong connection with the UK having been there with many different projects for quite a few years. This time I’m especially excited to come to the UK with The Dead Daisies in support of our new release ‘Revolución’, I know it’s going to be GREAT!!!, CAN’T WAIT!!!”
