Richie Kotzen will hit the road on his world tour starting in South America April 22nd in Goiania, Brazil, but is working his way back to his long-awaited return to the USA. This will be his first string of tour dates in the USA in over a decade and a concert not to miss. He will be performing from his 17 plus solo albums with various charting hits he wrote or performed with Poison and Mr. Big.
Kotzens latest critically acclaimed release PEACE SIGN on Headroom Inc is sweeping the Nation. Kotzen has an amazing ability to create projects that awe critics and inspire aspiring musicians having done it again with his new release. “I’m really excited about this new CD,” explains Kotzen. “I’m not sure how I did it, but somehow I think it has a really live sound, even though I’m playing all the instruments on all but four songs. I think it is because of the music I grew up on. Bands like Cream, The Stones, and of course Hendrix all had that ‘live — create it on the spot’ sound so I suppose that is the way I hear music.
Kotzen has been touted as “one of the best guitar players in the world” with a voice on par with some of the greatest rock/soul singers. He has also enjoyed a truly incredible journey in the world of music. Among numerous accomplishments, in 2006 as a solo artist, Kotzen was the opening act for the legendary Rolling Stones’ A Bigger Bang Tour in Japan. And in addition to writing and being featured on #1 charting albums and tracks, Kotzen has amassed an impressive 25 plus album discography.
