Rockers The Dead Daisies return to Auckland in October on tour with the greatest rock and roll band in rock ‘n’ roll history – KISS.

Performing as part of one of the most spectacular shows this year, The Dead Daisies will join the extravaganza on Friday 16 October at Vector Arena in Auckland.

The band has just completed a USA tour with Whitesnake and European dates with KISS on their 40th Anniversary world tour which included playing the largest festivals on the continent.

The Dead Daisies were last in New Zealand in November 2014 and this year the tour coincides with the release of a new album Revolución, an album which Classic Rock Mag has described as “the best Rock album I have heard in a long time … an incredible energy”.

A rock collective comprised of musicians from the world’s biggest rock bands, The Dead Daisies line up is currently Richard Fortus (Guns N’ Roses) on guitar, Marco Mendoza (Thin Lizzy/Whitesnake) on bass, Dizzy Reed (Guns N’ Roses) on keyboard/vocals, Brian Tichy (Whitesnake/Billy Idol/Ozzy Osbourne) on drums, David Lowy (MINK/Red Phoenix) on rhythm guitar and featuring new lead vocalist John Corabi, former lead singer of Mötley Crüe, The Scream and Union. Corabi joined the band in time to work on the new album.

“The Dead Daisies have been an absolute blast for me so far. The guys are all great musicians, and also incredibly easy to work with. We’ve just smashed the US and we can’t wait to head to New Zealand with our friends KISS to continue the ‘Revolucion’,”

The album Revolución was launched in New Zealand last week. The Dead Daisies tour to New Zealand with KISS for one show only on Friday 16 October at Vector Arena, Auckland. Tickets are available at
