Richie Kotzen Shares 'Cheap Shots' Video And Announces Fall Tour

Richie Kotzen has released a music video for the new single "Cheap Shots" from his forthcoming album, and has also revealed the dates for his U.S. solo tour that will be taking place this fall.

"I'm very much looking forward to playing 'Cheap Shots' live with my band" says Kotzen. "We've got a long string of dates kicking off in Montclair California this weekend with our Los Angeles area show on Saturday at the Canyon in Agoura. From there I go off to Europe for all of June and a bit of July. Following those dates, I'm going to be doing an extensive USA run starting this September and by then my new studio album will be released so this is turning out to be a very active year for me."

The "Cheap Shots" video was directed and choreographed by Emmy Award winner Jeff Wolfe. "The video was directed by my good friend Jeff Wolfe who had a visual concept after hearing the song," explains Kotzen. "In addition to being a talented director he is also an accomplished actor and stuntman, so he had the eye for brining those boxing scenes together. Although the song isn't about boxing per se," Kotzen continues, "I thought it was a good visual to go along with the idea of someone constantly taking what we may call 'cheap shots' in order to bring you down."
