The Dead Daisies have announced a massive pan-European tour for the summer 2022.
The first string of dates are a combination of arena and amphitheater shows with Judas Priest, Foreigner and Whitesnake, and performing at some of the most famous and coveted festivals such as Graspop Metal Meeting in Belgium and Hellfest in France.
Kicking things off in Germany, the band will also play a series of headline performances. Rejoining The Dead Daisies is drummer extraordinaire Brian Tichy who will unite with former Deep Purple stalwart Glenn Hughes, Doug Aldrich and David Lowy for a massive dose of undiluted rock, the first in Europe since 2018. These will also be the first shows with this line-up.
“What a great way to start off 2022,” said Tichy. “I’m excited to get behind the drum kit and do some powerful, groovy rocking with my good friends Doug Aldrich, Glenn Hughes and David Lowy in The Dead Daisies! Looking forward to seeing you all out on tour this year!”
The Dead Daisies promise to perform their hits, along with songs from their latest album, Holy Ground, and a couple of new tracks from the upcoming album.
The band are currently in Los Angeles recording a new LP with producer Ben Grosse for an August release, with first single due out in late May to coincide with the tour. This will be the band’s sixth studio album.
Said Hughes: “Hey loved ones, we cannot wait to come to Europe this summer and play for you all once again. There are so many beautiful cities to visit along the way. We are currently making a new record, so who knows hopefully we can bring a couple of new songs to you too!”
Holy Ground was released in January 2021. Recorded at La Fabrique Studios in the south of France with Grosse, the LP was the band’s first to feature Hughes, who joined the group in 2019 as its new bassist and vocalist, replacing John Corabi (Mötley Crüe) and Marco Mendoza (Thin Lizzy).
