THE TOUR TO END ALL TOURS: [ONE VERSION OF] L.A. GUNS TO TOUR WITH [ONE VERSION OF] FASTER PUSSYCAT
Folks, it’s finally happened. We’ve often lampooned the hilarity that there are currently two touring bands calling themselves L.A. Guns and two touring bands calling themselves Faster Pussycat, each featuring various combinations of ex-members of those groups. And we suppose that the eventual tour featuring both bands was completely inevitable; but it’s newsworthy (and funny) nonetheless. Just goes to prove that down and out musicians will do pretty much anything to make a buck and avoid having to get an actual 9-5 job. Bang Tango will round out the bill for the tour, which extends from early July to August and looks like it will cover most of the U.S.
For anyone actually keeping track, this is the Tracii Guns version of L.A. Guns (touting the “original” lineup that never got anywhere) and the Taime Down version of Faster Pussycat (lacking the group’s namesake guitarist Brent Muscat).
We’re just waiting for the announcement that both version of L.A. Guns will team up for a supertour with both versions of Faster Pussycat. Never say never…
