Greek guitar phenomenon Gus G. will embark on the “Operation Domination” co-headliner U.S. tour with renowned shredder Angel Vivaldi. A full breakdown of dates and venues is available below.
Gus G. states: “I’m very excited to return to the U.S. this fall to finally hit more markets and play for the fans that were left out on my recent Spring mini-tour. Teaming up with a talented player like Angel Vivaldi seemed like a great opportunity.
“We’re both stoked to bring the ‘Operation Domination’ tour to the American audiences and we will be performing our own individual sets, but also collaborating on stage together as well. We will have a great band with us that features James Paul Luna (Holy Grail) on vocals, Alex Bent (ex-Battlecross, Testament) on drums and Jake Skylyr on bass.
“The set list will once again be a mixed bag including songs from my solo works, Firewind, Ozzy material but some surprises as well. These shows are not to be missed. See you soon.”
Vivaldi further adds: “For me this tour perfectly summarizes the evolution of modern guitar playing. To be able to share a stage with a force such as Gus is both inspiring and refreshing. I cannot wait to see the looks on people’s faces when they see what we have planned! I’m also really excited to dip into music from all my releases including the upcoming re-recordings from The Speed of Dark: Revisited, coming out this year.
“After the recent tragic events in Orlando, I’m going above and beyond to make this tour a much needed celebration of love, inspiration and positive energy. I have some exciting tricks up my sleeve that I’m anxious to unleash on this run. It’s going to be a party!”
