Staind's Aaron Lewis Maps Out Solo Tour
The hugely successful tour saw sold-out shows last year, including a stint at the Mohegan Sun, where he sold more than 8000 tickets. The dates will begin on January 1st, 2010 with a special New Year's Day concert at the Green Valley Ranch Las Vegas in Henderson, Nevada.
From there, Lewis will traverse the continent, capping off his first leg with two nights at the Borgata Casino in Atlantic City, NJ. The second leg of the tour will kick off on February 25th at Hammond, Indiana's Horseshoe Casino.
In other news, Lewis will be appearing on Drury Outdoors' popular Outdoor Channel series, Dream Season Celebrity, set for broadcast in 2010. Dream Season Celebrity marks the seventh season of Dream Season, a reality hunting show that chronicles competing teams from across the country. This season will feature a twist by adding four celebrity team members who are paired with "average joes" with everyday jobs. An avowed outdoorsman, Lewis's participation in the series will raise funds for the Catch-A-Dream Foundation, which grants once-in-a-lifetime hunting and fishing experiences to children with life-threatening illnesses.
Staind is currently traveling North America alongside the recently reunited Creed. The dates – which follow Staind's headline role on this summer's enormously successful "Stimulate This! Tour," a four-band bill designed to offer fans maximum value at a minimal price – began earlier this week and will continue through mid-October.
