Attention European rock fans. TUFF/SHAMELESS are ready to embark on 3 week tour in August-September 2010.
The group will be fronted by legendary Sunset Strip veteran – TUFF vocalist Stevie Rachelle. The SHAMELESS bookends on bass & guitar will be Alexx Michael and his partner in crime BC. Also on board will be TUFF member Jimi “Gunz” Lord who played drums for the band during the “Religious Fix” years. The set will be filled with fan favorites from the TUFF Glam Rock classic debut “What Comes Around…Goes Around”. Tracks included will be “The All New Generation”, “I Hate Kissing You Goodbye” and “So Many Seasons”. Along with the new millenniums global mega smash “American Hair Band”. The SHAMELESS tunes to be featured are “Non Stop City”, “Steal The Girlz” & the Munich based bands most downloaded track, “Queen For A Day”.
The groups past tours have featured Bruce Kulick of KISS (2000), Steve Summers of Pretty Boy Floyd (2007) and Davy Vain (VAIN) showed up and jammed with the group in Germany (2009). This year will be no different, as the tour welcomes special guest guitarist Germany’s very own Andy Brings (The Traceelords/Sodom/Powergod). This tour is not the first for TUFF/SHAMELESS in Europe, but it will be the first ever Scandinavian appearance for the guys when the tour wraps up at Sweden’s “Stockholm Rockout Festival” on Saturday September 11th.
“There is a reason for us doing these European tours” says the TUFF singer. “The fans love it. They came to see us in the past, and they will be back again this year. The fans ultimately get two bands in one and really appreciate the vast amount of great pop glam rock songs.” TUFF and SHAMELESS combined have released over a dozen discs of music, and have a catalog of over 20 releases (including DVDs) in the last 20 years.
“We are beyond excited to play for our European fans, but Sweden & Belgium will be new stops and we cannot wait.” adds Alexx Michael “We have friends and fans on every continent and we vow that South America and Japan are next!” The tour currently has shows slated for Germany, Italy, Sweden, Switzerland & Belgium. Stay tuned for exact dates, venues and developments in the near future!
