ERIC SINGER & FRIENDS: Australian Shows Announced

Eric Singer, the drummer of KISS, will be touring Australia with ALICE COOPER in June/July this year. Eric first toured with Alice in Australia in 1990 on the back of the enormously successful "Trash" album and has played with him on and off ever since. Eric has been a regular visitor to Australia between ALICE COOPER and KISS tours, having also been back for drum clinics and master classes as well as other performances, including drumming for QUEEN guitarist Brian May.

Eric and his Cooper bandmates will be performing two exclusive shows in Australia on their days off in Sydney and Melbourne. The band will let loose with a set of their favourite songs by bands like KISS, DAVID BOWIE, SWEET, T-REX, CHEAP TRICK and many others — the music that influenced them.

Singer's band for these performances will consist of guitarist/vocalist Ryan Roxie (SLASH'S SNAKEPIT, ALICE COOPER, ROXIE '77), who has acted as ALICE COOPER's music director for all of his tours since 1995; bassist Chuck Garric, who has played with DIO, among others; and guitarist/vocalist Damon Johnson. Damon has done session work with the likes of SAMMY HAGAR, FAITH HILL and JOHN WAITE.

After the show, the band will be hanging around for a signing session to meet and greet the fans and will be making available some exclusive merchandise. Support for both shows will come from Melbourne act STAND. who have just recently completed a series of shows opening for PETER FRAMPTON, SUZI QUATRO and THREE DOORS DOWN.
