Marty Friedman Announces 2019 U.S. Tour Dates

Marty Friedman has announced U.S. tour dates in support of his new live album, One Bad M.F. Live!! The tour begins January 23, 2019 in San Diego and wraps February 24 in Baltimore. Meet & Greet Experience VIP packages will be available Friday, October 26 on his official website, which include: one ticket to the show, meet and greet before the show, guitar pick pack, VIP lanyard, autographs and vault CDs.

Said Friedman, “This tour will bring upon an avalanche of emotion and aggression, tears of joy, and an unhealthy dose of positive vibes from Tokyo!”

Friedman’s band for the dates will feature bassist Kiyoshi, guitarist Jordan Ziff, and drummer Chargeeee. “My band outshines me every night,” Friedman said in a statement. “You will fall in love with Kiyoshi`s stage persona and her playing. I have never seen or heard a bassist like her. Jordan follows in a well-documented tradition of mine, of only playing with super guitarists. Chargeeee will have you laughing as he seems to be straight off The Muppets, while effortlessly bashing through some quite complex drumming.”
