L.A. Guns will kick off their world tour in support of the Deluxe Re-issue of Shrinking Violet at the Key Club in Los Angeles, on June 10th.  They will perform at The Hard Rock Hell 4 Festival in Prestatyn Wales on 4th December.  More UK dates will be scheduled shortly.

The band line-up is Tracii Guns (guitar), Jizzy Pearl (vocals -  formerly with Love/Hate and Ratt), Jeremy Guns (bass) and drummer Chad Stewart.

Born in Hollywood, Tracii Guns cut his teeth listening to Jimmy Page. At the tender age of six he heard “Whole Lotta Love” for the first time and Guns parlayed his Zeppelin-inspired zest into what would become a legendary career. At twelve, an age when most guys are just discovering their equipment, Tracii had already formed his first band.


The original L.A. Guns line-up featured a certain Axl Rose as vocalist, and shortly after he left the band to form Hollywood Rose, Tracii agreed to join him, merging the two bands into Guns’N’ Roses. However, Tracii’s tenure with G’n’R was short-lived, and he returned to his first love, finalising what is widely regarded as the classic L.A. Guns line-up.


L.A. Guns went go on to sell more than 6,000,000 albums worldwide with debut L.A. Guns achieving Gold status and follow-up Cocked and Loaded going Platinum in the US, entrenching them as one of the most successful glam-metal bands of the era. However, L.A Guns have endured long past those heady days in the 80’s and early 90’s and, unlike many long since forgotten contemporaries (and a cavalcade of more recent imitators) Tracii’s L.A. Guns are the real, accept-no substitutes thing.
