In a time when certain parts of the music industry are trying to claim that ‘Rock is Dead’, The Dead Daisies are leading a charge that’s taking them to the road not only in clubs and concert halls but straight to the very heart of rock music lovers and musician’s communities.

The American All-Star Rock Collective comprised of Doug Aldrich (Whitesnake, Dio), John Corabi (Mötley Crüe, The Scream), Marco Mendoza (Whitesnake, Thin Lizzy), Deen Castronovo (Bad English, Journey) and David Lowy (Red Phoenix, Mink) has been known to put their fans first in everything they do which has garnered them a groundswell of support akin to the 70s rock bands we all know and love.

Venues will open their doors one hour early to the first 50 in-line with the band playing an intimate, private “Daisyland” acoustic set after which they’ll mingle, say hi and sign albums, posters etc. The goal is to rekindle that close connection the way it used to be, when bands would regularly meet some of their audience at music events, giving their time to the people that bought their records and concert tickets, unlike the hundreds of dollars some bands charge in today’s music world for a meet & greet.

To that end, The Dead Daisies are taking it to the streets across the UK throughout November and can’t wait to bring the house down on their ‘Daisyland’ UK Winter Tour performing 120-minute sets including an acoustic interlude each and every night, with two different sets lined up for the two London gigs. Fans who buy a special two-night ticket for the London shows will also receive a commemorative exclusive laminate.

“We cannot wait to come back to the UK and rock with you! The pre-show acoustic shows are too much fun and give us a chance to connect with our fans more than ever and pull out some deep cuts and favorites in an intimate setting – do not miss it!!”, says guitarist Doug Aldrich.

The Dead Daisies also just released “Can’t Take It With You” as their fourth single off their latest album “Burn It Down” with a lyric video to match! The single once again was added to Planet Rock’s coveted A-Playlist and is featured across many Spotify Playlists where the band just recently cracked the 25K Follower Threshold (all of that in a time where people proclaiming rock music to be dead!).

Superlative special guest acts from across the rock spectrum are set to enthrall at the band’s nine headline concerts, from trusted classics Diamond Head, Tygers Of Pan Tang, Chrome Molly, Oliver / Dawson Saxon and No Hot Ashes, through to new UK rock sensation Massive Wagons.

In addition, The Dead Daisies are set to headline the Hard Rock Hell, Planet Rockstock, Winterstorm and Monsterfest Festivals. The complete tour dates are:
