Taking Dawn to Tour With Slash
Wed, 28 Jul 2010 12:39:11
Having just returned from an overseas tour with KISS, Las Vegas upstarts Taking Dawn are excited to announce a string of tour dates with legendary rock icon Slash. These kids certainly have an agent with lots of good connections! Oh, and they have some incredibly catch rock tunes, to boot.
Taking Dawn successfully uses the '80s sound to create a foundation for their thoroughly modern take on the genre: shredding, soloing and incorporating sophisticated melody into their metal. Time to Burn is an artful fusion of their bygone influences with contemporary skill and playful "screw you" attitude.
Having long been inspired by artists like Bon Jovi, Skid Row and of course, Guns N' Roses, it makes sense that the band is more than just a little excited to be going on the road with the godfather of guitar, Slash. The band recently shot a video for their unique take on Fleetwood Mac's classic, "The Chain," with director Ramon Boutviseth (Trivium, Dream Theater) in Las Vegas. That's definitely something you want to check out, since not many hard roc bands endeavor to cover the Mac!
Tour dates are below.
8/29 @ The Warfield Theatre, San Francisco CA
8/31 @ Belly Up, Aspen CO
9/1 @ Ogden Theatre, Denver CO
9/2 @ Voodoo Lounge, Kansas City MO
9/5 @ Pabst Theater, Milwaukee WI
9/6 @ Surf Ballroom, Surf Lake IA
These dates will be followed by another tour that will be announced shortly.
