After playing at the world’s largest rock festivals followed by concerts across Europe, Japan, South America and Mexico, THE DEAD DAISIES are returning home for the last leg of their world tour, playing twelve shows in support of their critically acclaimed new live album, “Live And Louder”.
A live rendition of the GRAND FUNK RAILROAD classic “We’re An American Band” was released on July 4 in celebration of the nation’s independence and its video was created to remind the world of what’s great about America. The clip has already been viewed more than one million times on YouTube and Facebook.
THE DEAD DAISIES lead singer John Corabi states: “We first performed the song for our troops in South Korea. We wanted to bring a little bit of something ‘American’ to our men and women in uniform, and give them a taste of home. The song went over so well we decided to keep playing it and then recorded it for the album.”
Dubbed “The Dirty Dozen Tour”, THE DEAD DAISIES‘ invasion, with special guests THE DIVES, kicks off on August 10 in Chicago and wraps on August 27 in Las Vegas.
In addition to these headline shows, the band will be playing some of the largest motorcycle rallies in the country, with performances at the Full Throttle Saloon in Sturgis on August 9, The EasyRiders Rodeo Tour in Chillicothe, Ohio on September 1 and at The National H.O.G. Rally at the Harley-Davidson Museum in Milwaukee on September 2.
