The hardest working singer in rock music, Myles Kennedy, is heading back out on tour of the United States in support of his critically acclaimed, debut solo album Year Of The Tiger, courtesy of Napalm Records. The 18-date US tour will kick-off on November 13th in Chicago, IL and run through December 16th where it wraps up in Seattle, WA. Along the way, the tour will make stops in Milwaukee, WI; Cleveland, OH; Hartford, CT and Atlanta, GA among others. The second leg will vary from the sold-out first tour in May because these shows will feature Myles supported by his backing band from the album: Tim Tournier on bass and Zia Uddin on drums and percussion. The performances will feature music from the critically acclaimed solo album as well as selections from Myles’ work with Alter Bridge, The Mayfield Four and Slash featuring Myles Kennedy and the Conspirators. The hometown show in Spokane, WA is currently on-sale and all tour information including ticket links and VIP information for all dates can be found at.
On the Year Of The Tiger album, Myles embarked on his first venture as a solo artist by embracing musical elements and influences he hadn’t explored previously in his career. Kennedy himself played banjo, lap steel, bass, and mandolin in addition to guitar throughout the album. The emotional journey and personal story of Myles is captured in a bluesy-americana album with a twist of country and rock, swirling and flowing around the incredible, soulful voice that the world has come to know. As MetalSucks.com declared: “Kennedy is the Robert Plant of our times.”
The new tour announcement comes on the heels of the recently released Alter Bridge Live At The Royal Albert Hall which was recorded over the band’s two historical shows supported by the Parallax Orchestra last October and has been receiving rave reviews around the globe. Myles Kennedy will also be back with Slash and the Conspirators on the upcoming album, Living The Dream, scheduled for release on September 21st. Myles will be on tour with Slash and the Conspirators throughout September and October in support of that new release.
Myles Kennedy burst on the music scene in 1990, but it wasn¹t until 1995, through his band The Mayfield Four, that he gained some notoriety. It was when the Mayfield Four toured opening for hitmakers Creed that Myles Kennedy would meet Mark Tremonti, Brian Marshall and Scott Phillips. This meeting would eventually lead to the formation of Alter Bridge, the band that would become Myles¹ calling card to the world. The band released their debut album One Day Remains that would end up being certified Gold by the RIAA and the band would go on to sell millions of records worldwide over the course of 5 studio albums with the band. In 2008, the legacy of Myles Kennedy was circling the music industry and eventually found its way to members of Led Zeppelin. A now legendary story, Myles was asked to jam with Jimmy Page, John Paul Jones and Jason Bonham for a potential project that never materialized. In 2009, Guns N¹ Roses guitarist Slash was working on a solo project and tapped Myles Kennedy to do vocals on 2 songs on that release. That partnership would lead to Myles becoming the vocalist for his other rock band, Slash featuring Myles Kennedy and The Conspirators. They have released 2 albums under that moniker. This relationship would also lead to Myles Kennedy singing for the iconic Guns N¹ Roses at their Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame induction in 2012 after band founder Axl Rose was unable to attend. Through Myles’ various projects, he has appeared on The Tonight Show; Jimmy Kimmel Live; Conan; has had music used by the WWE, Major League Baseball and NASCAR to name a few; and appeared in the motion picture Rock Star. 2018 will mark a new chapter in Myles¹ career as he will be releasing his long-awaited debut solo album Year Of The Tiger. The album is a whole new direction for Myles creatively and showcases the talent that has made him one of the premiere frontmen in modern music today.
