LA Guns announce 2018 UK tour dates


After more than a decade apart, Tracii Guns and Phil Lewis have reunited under the banner of L.A. Guns.

Following on from dates in London and Sheffield in October 2017, they are excited to announce they will be playing gigs and festivals across Europe, including several dates in the UK, beginning in London on August 31st.  With a headlining slot at the HRH Sleaze festival in Sheffield on September 1st, dates in France and Germany to follow before concluding in Hull on September 16th at the Hair Metal Festival.

For this tour, the band will be joined by special guests Jared James Nichols and Stone Trigger for all non-festival dates.

In 2017 L.A. Guns released one of their most critically acclaimed albums, The Missing Peace, released on Frontiers. This made the Billboard charts in both general album sales and hard rock album sales in the USA, suggesting the band’s legion of fans agreed with the general consensus as to how good the album is. The band’s renewed energy and enthusiasm can be seen on their recently released ‘live’ album/ DVD , ‘Made in Milan.’
