The Press Release:
Having recently wrapped up the massively successful Young Guns tour that Bass Magazine called “a co-headline tour of two of the greatest modern-day rock bands,” today DIRTY HONEY announces “The California Dreamin’ Tour.” The 28-date, North American headline trek will also see the band play a handful of major festivals and radio shows and include their first tour of Canada. “The California Dreamin’ Tour” will launch on Thursday, August 25, at Waterfest in Oshkosh, WI, and wrap at the Aftershock Festival in Sacramento, CA, on October 9. Fellow Los Angeles rock band Dorothy will join the tour in Portland, OR on September 7 as direct support, and Detroit rockers Mac Saturn will open the shows on all dates.

“This tour is a statement tour, and the statement is that ‘Rock is alive and well,’ and three bands are heading out to prove that – Dirty Honey, Dorothy, and newcomers Mac Saturn,” said guitarist John Notto. “Get your ticket and get your ass out here.”

“While this will be our first tour of Canada,” vocalist Marc LaBelle added, “we’ve played a handful of shows there and were floored by the reception. Canada definitely has a very strong appetite for rock’n’roll, and we’re coming to feed the fire.”

Although this is their first proper Canadian tour, Dirty Honey is no stranger to the Great White North. Dirty Honey’s debut single, “When I’m Gone,” hit #7 Active Rock in Canada, and their second single, “Rollin’ 7s,” peaked at #5 on the same chart. And this past March, Dirty Honey co-headlined a show with Mammoth WVH in Toronto and has previously played in Canada with Slash and Miles Kennedy/Alter Bridge and at Heavy MTL in 2019.

Just before the “California Dreamin’ Tour” kick-off, Dirty Honey will make its UK/European debut with a 29-city run. The itinerary will include a handful of headline club dates, and slots on major summer festivals, including the UK’s Download Festival, Switzerland’s Rock The Ring, Hellfest in France, and Belgium’s Graspop, playing stadiums with Guns N’ Roses and KISS, and theaters with Rival Sons.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: So historically speaking, I’ve only ever seen Dirty Honey twice and the most recent time was during that “Young Guns” tour that was mentioned up above in the intro. If you missed my concert report, you can just click HERE to check it out. It was for sure a proper good time. I’m a tad bummed that this “California Dreamin'” Tour will NOT be bringing the band anywhere near my locality, but I will just be more eager for the next chance to see them, I guess. I’m going to recommend that you folks who they are planning on visiting be in attendance though because the sound is so solid that I am hard-pressed to think you having anything less than a fantastic time. That’s all I have to say about this one so I will wrap it up and say, “see you next time”. You can chime in your own thoughts down in the comments section if you have something to add to the mix. Please keep safe out there.
