See ya on the road kids!!!”Before being turned loose on North American audiences, the troops will be fresh from playing some of the most prestigious & high profile UK & EU Rock Festivals coupled with a series of headline club shows, dates in Japan to then make their long-awaited debut in South America.

The result, once again mixed by Anthony Focx (Aerosmith, Bad Company), is an absolute stunner!Lead guitarist Doug Aldrich has some choice words about the upcoming live album – “Live & Louder really helps define The Dead Daisies’ sound. Like bands I’ve been involved with co-producing (Whitesnake and Dio), we have a great team that makes sure our sound is consistent and we are always looking to pump it up. Onstage I just play guitar but our crew and production team are very instrumental in capturing what happens on stage. Now get out there and go Live & Louder with us this summer!!”Special Guests on this run will be THE DIVES which the band made instant friends with on the previous years’ KISS Kruise and who will add their own blend of signature rock and roll to the fiery package.Rock & Roll is indeed alive and well!!!Check out the “Make Some Noise – Live & Louder” video here: http://bit.ly/2mcS4ftLINE-UP:Doug Aldrich (Whitesnake, Dio) – GuitarsJohn Corabi (Mötley Crüe, The Scream) – VocalsDavid Lowy (Red Phoenix, Mink) – GuitarsMarco Mendoza (Thin Lizzy, Whitesnake) – BassBrian Tichy (Ozzy Osbourne, Foreigner) – DrumsTHE DIRTY DOZEN TOUR – NORTH AMERICA 2017:Thu 10 Aug Arcada Theatre | Chicago ILFri 11 Aug [email protected] Andrews | Detroit, MISat 12 Aug Lee’s Palace | Toronto, ONWed 16 Aug House Of Independence | Asbury Park, NJThu 17 Aug Highline Ballroom | New York NYFri 18 Aug Rams Head Live | Baltimore, MDSat 19 Aug Masquerade | Atlanta, GASun 20 Aug The Basement East | Nashville, TNWed 23 Aug Gas Monkey | Dallas, TXFri 25 Aug El Rey Theatre | Los Angeles, CASat 26 Aug House of Blues | San Diego, CASun 27 Aug Counts Vamp’d | Las Vegas NVTickets: www.thedeaddaisies.com/thedirtydozenGeneral on-sale April 14, 2017LIVE & LOUDER WORLD TOUR 2017:EUROPEFri 2 Jun Rock Hard Festival | Gelsenkirchen, GermanySat 3 Jun Rock In Vienna | Vienna, AustriaSun 4 Jun Substage | Karlsruhe, GermanyMon 5 Jun Druso | Bergamo, ItalyTue 6 Jun Dynamo | Zürich, SwitzerlandThu 8 Jun Amager Bio | Copenhagen, DenmarkFri 9 Jun Sweden Rock Festival | Solvesborg, SwedenSun 11 Jun Download Festival | Donington, United KingdomMon 12 Jun Liquid Room | Edinburgh, United KingdomWed 14 Jun Boerderij | Zoetermeer, NetherlandsFri 16 Jun Le Forum | Vaureal, FranceSat 17 Jun Hellfest | Clisson, FranceSun 18 Jun Graspop Metal Meeting | Dessel, BelgiumTue 20 Jun Hirsch | Nürnberg, GermanyWed 21 Jun Hellraiser | Leipzig, GermanyFri 23 Jun Harley Days Festival | Hamburg, GermanySun 25 Jun Bluesiana | Velden, AustriaMon 26 Jun Bluesiana | Velden, AustriaTue 27 Jun Rockhouse | Salzburg, AustriaWed 28 Jun A38 | Budapest, HungaryThu 29 Jun Lucerna Music Bar | Prague, Czech RepublicSat 1 Jul Freigericht Rockt Festival | Freigericht, GermanyThu 3 Aug Woodstock Poland | Kostrzyn, PolandJAPANWed 5 Jul Shibuya Club Quattro | Tokyo, JapanThu 6 Jul Umeda Club Quattro | Osaka, JapanSOUTH AMERICAWed 12 Jul Opera de Arame | Curitiba, Brazil (special guest to Richie Kotzen)Thu 13 Jul Carioca Club | Sao Paulo, Brazil (special guest to Richie Kotzen)Sat 15 Jul Vorterix | Buenos Aires, ArgentinaSun 16 Jul Teatro Vorterix | Rosario, ArgentinaWed 18 Jul Venue tba. | Santiago, ChileMore South American Dates to be announced!
