Hot from their appearance at Europe's biggest biker city event, the Hamburg Harley Days Festival, yesterday, Friday 23rd June 2017, The Dead Daisies will return to the US for three major American biker events and performances that follow up their debut Full Throttle Saloon appearance during the Sturgis motorcycle rally last year.

The confirmed performances are as follows:

Wednesday 9th August: The Full Throttle Saloon in Sturgis, SD
Friday 1st September: The Easyriders Rodeo in Chillicothe, OH
Saturday 2nd September: Harley-Davidson Museum in Milwaukee, WI

Dead Daisies frontman John Corabi said:

"Riding gives you a sense of freedom. When your job, family, and daily pressures of life are weighing you down, you can fire up a bike, get on it and ride, and free yourself of everything. Plus, I think all men have an inner 'bad boy' in them, and all women (deep inside) WANT a bad boy, as well.

"I have to admit I've felt a bit 'tougher' while I'm riding... that is, until I chipped a nail... LOL."

In addition to these three colossal bike events, The Dead Daisies are working with twelve of the largest Harley-Davidson dealers in the country as part of their Rock N Ride promotion to support their Dirty Dozen National Tour.

This promotion will enable Harley-Davidson owners and customers in the appearance markets to have the chance to win tickets to the bands shows and a chance to meet the band.

The Dead Daisies launched their official fan club recently and are promising lots of benefits for fans worldwide and it's totally free of charge too.

As well as a special message from Marco and John in the video below, the band told us:

"We're proud to announce the launch of 'The Deadsies', the official The Dead Daisies fan club, run by fans for fans. Become part of the Daisies family - it's free and all info is right here.

"Join and enjoy unique content, designed exclusively just for you: We want to you be the first one to know all the band's activity, we want you to have exclusive merchandise, we want you to enjoy discounts on the official merchandise, we want you to have priority to attend events... and much more. But especially, we want to have direct communication with you.

"We feel that a fan club should be free, just like Meet & Greets, and a band shouldn't charge for this. You can subscribe and become a member absolutely free. For those of you that what a little bit extra – a cool membership package, some great merch and signed photo of your favorite band member – you can order the Fan Club package through our webstore for a very attractive price.

"We're thrilled to get this official fan club off the ground, and we're excited about changing the game for our fans and it helping us engaging with you guys even more. Thank you very much for your trust."

The Dead Daisies released 'Live & Louder', their highly-anticipated live package, on May 19th 2017 via Spitfire Music/SPV and the album made a huge impact on the British charts, hitting the number ten spot in it's first week of release, a remarkable achievement for a live album.

Monsters Of Rock In Full Flight is strictly limited to 300 worldwide and is available from 30th November but those ordering before 31st October will have their name published within a dedicated page in the book.

It's a deluxe 128 page hardback book in a metal flight case with a narrative by Jerry Bloom.

When promoter Paul Loasby put on the first Monsters Of Rock Festival in 1980 he could probably never have imagined it would become an annual event that would endure for so many years.

Featuring bands from the UK, Germany, Canada and USA, Loasby chose to stage the event at the Donington race circuit in the middle of England and it would prove to be a defining moment for many of the bands on the bill.

Not least for headliners Rainbow as it was the their last ever show to feature drum legend Cozy Powell. As it would happen it turned out to be the last for vocalist Graham Bonnet as well. For many of the other bands on the bill such as Scorpions, Judas Priest and Saxon, they were all on the ascendancy and would soon go on to even greater success.

Now in celebration of this first ever Monsters Of Rock Festival comes this hardback book full of glorious photos of the bands that took to the stage for that inaugural event including back stage shots. Most of these shots have not been published before which add to the uniqueness of this deluxe 128-page book which is packaged in its own flight case.

Also included are stories surrounding the event with tales and recollections from those who were there, including artists and fans alike. Each book will be signed by the author. The 300 will sell fast and definitely go on to become collector's items so order yours now right here to avoid disappointment.
