White Wizzard, Forbidden, Revocation and Havok Tour
The shows will be White Wizzard's first since the return of vocalist Wyatt "The Screaming Demon" Anderson. The tour is set to kick on June 9th at the Whisky A Go Go in Hollywood.
White Wizzard bassist and founding member Jon Leon comments: "I am very excited to be touring with Forbidden. Forbidden was my favorite band of the Bay Area thrash/metal scene back in the day when I was a kid. I also hold them in the highest regard in musicianship, song writing and technical ability.
"Their first three albums, 'Forbidden Evil', 'Twisted Into Form', and 'Distortion' were all big influences on me and inspired me to want to be a musician. I saw many a show back then, and there was no band in that scene that could pull off a live show better than Forbidden. Russ is one of the few GREAT singers in metal history and he is the best of ALL TIME in the history of thrash. That includes the so called 'Big Four'.
"I was so bummed they split in the late '90s, and when they reunited I went up to the Bay Area to see them and it was still magic. I have seen them twice since and they are just getting better and better.
"It is great to go open for a band I respect so much and the best part will be being able to watch their set every night!! Forbidden is a special band and it is great they are back making music and touring again. We are very thrilled to be along for the ride this time."
