Possible Package Tour?

lynch.jpgGet ready to see George Lynch back with Don Dokken. Apparently the two are once again reconciling for a summer tour. Who else is rumored on the bill? None other than Warrant (with Jani Lane, of course) and Cinderella.

Can you say Rocklahoma?

Let's break this down.

Of the three, I'm most excited to see Warrant. I've already seen Cinderella live, but I've never been to a Lane fronted Warrant concert.

That said, I've never seen George Lynch perform live either. For many, Lynch makes Dokken. While I'm not the biggest Dokken fan on the planet, I do like some of the songs and must admit that the band gave one hell of a performance at Rocklahoma 2007.

I saw Cinderella when they opened for Poison a couple summers back. While the band was good, Tom Keifer's voice wasn't as strong as I'd hoped. I'm guessing the entire band will be in top form for this summer's package tour.

Here's the question: if Dokken, Cinderella and Warrant are touring this summer, who is left to support Poison?

My guess is that Poison will tour, but they won't play Rocklahoma 2008. I think they will headline a shed tour with White Lion and Trixter...and maybe even Vince Neil. Poison were smart last year to take Vains of Jenna on the road. To that end, I think they will add another young band to their summer jaunt. Either Dirty Penny or Lynam would be great.

I have my doubts on this one. George Lynch has said previously that he would never work with Don Dokken again.

Of course we know...never rarely means never when it comes to rock. It doesn't sound like George though.

I can't see him wanting to go on tour in support of songs that he didn't write or play on, on the Lightning Strikes Again record.

Who could tour with Poison???? Well Kix has stated they will be playing a limited number of shows across the country this spring/summer..the first time in over 12 years...but I don't think Kix is going to be playing with Poison, they would probably rather play their entire set in I don't think they are to found of Poison...being they ripped them off basically. I would love to see them on the Cinderella, Warrant, Dokken tour, but that seems to be filled.

Not sure about the news regarding George and Dokken.

Jani has indeed returned to Warrant. The band is set to announce the reunion in about 1 month.

a Reunited Pretty Boy Floyd, Kix, or Dirty Looks along with Hardcore Superstar, Crashdiet, or Gemini Five!

Ick. I was really looking foreward to seeing Cinderella this year, but Warrant and Dokken? While I used to love the song Heaven (until I showed it to a friend and they played it over and get's old pretty quick) I don't really like any Warrant songs...and Dokken...I don't know. I respect George Lynch, but am not too big of a Dokken fan.

I would much rather see Cinderella tour with some other band, and have say...Lynam tour as the opening act. Especially since Tom plays...I think it was slide guitar on one of their new songs.

However, I guess if Cinderella comes close I'll have to find some way to see them, as no one else I know really likes Warrant or Dokken either, which may lead to trouble when coming to find a ride.

Good question about Poison though, especially since they toured with RATT last year so who does this leave Poison & RATT to tour with?

Maybe Slaughter or Skid Row could tour with one of them. And then a newer band as the opening act.

Well Kix is definitely reuniting for to do a national spring/summer tour. The first time they will play live outside of the Baltimore area in over 12 years. The question is will they hook onto an established tour like Poison's or Cinderella's or will they play state fairs and clubs? My guess would be the later.

I've never liked Dokken with the exception of the "Erase the Slate" CD, and that was with Reb Beach on guitar rather than Lynch. I'd love to see Cinderella again, especially after the 2006 disaster in Cincinnati. And Warrant, I've seen them before but if they were with Cinderella I would definitely see them again. But if it was only Dokken and Warrant, I wouldn't die if I missed it.

I'd like to see Crashdiet come over for some shows, but I don't know how they would be received on a tour with Poison. I think they would fit better with Motley Crue.

wow, that would be one hell of a show if Dirty Penny got a gig with Poison, seeing as how they used to be called Antidote and used to also be a Poison cover band.

Poison better do rocklahoma. i will be pissed

Maybe someone just needs to put together "Glam-Aide 2009" and Get 'em all together for a 3 day Hair Metal Mash! :)

And I saw Cinderella with Poison, in 2006 at blossom in Cleveland, and thought they rocked! Didn't care much for Endeverafter , but they weren't horrible, and of course Poison brought the house down! :)
