Richie Kotzen, Vinnie Moore, Gus G Team Up for American Tour

Guitar greats Richie Kotzen, Vinnie Moore and Gus G are teaming up for a 10-date tour of the West Coast this September. You can check out the full itinerary below.

Kotzen will be promoting his most recent solo album, 2017's Salting Earth. “It’s [the record is] something I really needed to do in order to reset myself,” Kotzen told Guitar World about Salting Earth in a 2017 interview. "[It] really shows me in the realm of what I do as far as being a recording artist."

Moore's most recent solo album is 2015's Aerial Visions, which features drummer Richie Monica, and bassists Dave LaRue, Rob DeLuca, Dorian Heartsong and Elliott Dean Rubinson.

Gus G will be promoting his brand-new solo album, Fearless. The album is the Firewind mastermind's first since leaving Ozzy Osbourne's band in 2017 (he was replaced by Zakk Wylde) and is the follow-up to 2015's Brand New Revolution. It was recorded with vocalist/bassist Dennis Ward (Pink Cream 69/Unisonic) and drummer Will Hunt (Evanescence, Black Label Society).
