Night Ranger Summer tour dates revealed
So, there's no new album from Night Ranger this year, to follow 2011's excellent 'Somewhere in California' release, but bassist / vocalist Jack Blades has just released his latest blast entitled 'Rock 'n' Roll Ride' via Frontiers records.
That said, Night Ranger is renowned every year - pretty much without fail - for their US Summer tour dates and this year looks like being no different, with the latest batch of dates revealed running from May through until September ...
At this time they have only revealed twenty dates, but the fact that these run across five months, means there's sure to be plenty more!
Last year was quite different for the band though, as they tagged onto the mega tour with Journey and Foreigner, taking the opening slot which sadly limited them to just over thirty five minutes a night.
Now the following dates will allow the band to get back to headlining again, typically providing a set around ninety minutes long.
Being a long time fan, I can tell you this, I've yet to leave a Night Ranger gig disappointed!
Summer tour dates announced so far:
5/11: Merriweather Post Pavilion - Columbia, MD
5/12: May Fest on Main - Main Stage - North Myrtle Beach, SC
6/1: Arcadia Creek Festival Place - Kalamazoo, MI
6/2: Community Center - Lenox Village, IL
6/9: City Hall - Gardner, KS
6/15: Thunder Valley Outdoor Amphitheatre - Lincoln, CA
6/16: San Mateo Fairgrounds - San Mateo, CA
6/21: Sonoma-Marin Fair - Petaluma, CA
