Maximum-blues-infused, rock 'n' roll band Rival Sons are excited to announce a14-city tour beginning August 20 with stops including Chicago, Milwaukee, St. Louis and Lake Tahoe, wrapping in San Francisco September 7 (full tour itinerary below). The Long Beach, CA-based group has been invited to perform a select number of shows with one of their hometown heroes, Sammy Hagar, on his "Four Decades of Rock" summer tour.
Guitarist Scott Holiday says, "Well, we're finally hittin' our homeland for a handful of tour dates. Ask and ye shall receive! And what a cool thing to get to go out and support a legend.and super cool fella like Mr. Sammy Hagar! I think this one's gonna be a blast."
Hagar has been a fan of the Rival Sons for a while, since he first heard their 2009 debut Before The Fire. "These guys are the real thing," says Hagar. "Their first CD was great, showing off a lot of styles from the 60's, 70's and 80's. These boys have done their homework.now road-tested. The Sons have made a CD (Head Down) that truly lives up to the band's name. This is a giant step from a great previous CD.not easy. But for those that like classic rock but are tired of the same old songs, I highly recommend this CD.and even better, go see 'em live--they deliver." Hagar and RIVAL SONS frontman, Jay Buchanan, come from the same town of Fontana, CA.
