KELLY KEELING's Promotional Obligations Made It Impossible To Do Entire GEORGE LYNCH Tour

Powerhouse rock vocalist and former Atlantic recording artist Kelly Keeling (BATON ROUGE, BLUE MURDER, MSG, JOHN NORUM) has issued a statement regarding the reports that he is being replaced by singer/songwriter Andrew Freeman (THIRTY STONES, BLOCKK 16) on George Lynch's (DOKKEN, LYNCH MOB) short summer tour. As previously reported, Freeman completed a string of East Coast dates with Lynch back in October and was asked to return when Keeling became unavailable. A statement from Keeling's management company, Cohen Management GMBH, reads as follows:

"Added dates to the Lynch tour and previous engagements to Kelly's own solo album obligations of promotion, tour scheduling and band rehearsals made it hard to be in two places at once. Kelly was helping out until they found someone to fill these added dates.

"[Commented Kelly]: 'Andrew is a great singer who knows all the material. Very happy he was available.'

"Kelly's solo album, 'Giving Sight to the Eye', is doing well overseas where the bulk of his summer tour will take place. A short tour on the East coast starting in Pennsylvania starts off the tour with an American summer release on Mascot Records."
