Smith/Kotzen (Iron Maiden, Poison) Announce Debut U.S. Tour

  • Axl Rosenberg

Smith/Kotzen, the surprisingly popular project from Adrian Smith (Iron Maiden) and Richie Kotzen (ex-Poison, Winery Dogs), have announced their debut U.S. tour.

And by “tour,” I mean they’re playing six shows, all in California save for one, which is in Vegas. So they’re not straying too far from home.

Says Smith of the impending dates:

“It’s always been our intention to take these songs on the road and give them a good kicking about. We’re delighted that we’ve been able to set up this tour around a very hectic 2022 schedule and we both can’t wait to finally get out there and play live.”

Adds Kotzen:

“We’re excited that we can take Smith/Kotzen to the next level and bring our music to the stage. We’re still figuring out which musicians we’ll be bringing with us to deliver the songs in the way we’ve always envisaged to give fans a dynamic live experience. We’re really looking forward to this tour and we’re planning to have a lot of fun!”
