Following the success of last years UK Tour, Richie Kotzen has just announced three UK dates for June 2010 as part of his World Tour of the new ‘Peace Sign’ Album. Last October saw the first live dates that Richie had played in the UK since 2004 resulting in a ‘Sold Out’ London performance.
Richie is a guitar virtuoso who has recorded on Mike Varney’s Shrapnel Label, recorded and toured with Multi Platinum bands Poison and Mr Big, played in Keanu Reeves band Dogstar and played as a solo artist as the opening act for the Rolling Stones ‘Bigger Bang’ tour in Japan in 2006. Richie has amassed a 30 plus album discography.
He is one of a very few artists who has been graced with not one but two Fender signature guitars.
However, unlike most virtuoso guitarists, Richie’s material is not full bore shred rock. Instead he writes and sings soulful songs that bring to mind the very best of both early 1970’s rock, and the current crop of emerging young blues rock guitar players. His voice has been compared to Steve Marriott, Paul Rodgers and Chris Cornell.
The UK tour dates are:
June 17th - 02 Academy Islington, LONDON
June 19th - Club Academy, MANCHESTER
June 20th - The Classic Grand, GLASGOW
