Aerosmith guitarist Brad Whitford and Derek St. Holmes announce US tour

Aerosmith guitarist Brad Whitford and longtime Ted Nugent vocalist Derek St. Holmes have announced dates for a US tour.

“We are very excited to announce the first leg of our 2016 Summer Tour supporting the legendary Whitesnake!”, says the duo.

The rockers will join Whitesnake on the band’s Greatest Hits tour for a month of shows starting June 3 at the Bomb Factory in Dallas, TX.

The run will include a pair of headlining Whitford/St. Holmes dates, including a June 22 stop in Sellersville, PA and a July 1 appearance at the Tupelo Music Hall in Londonderry, NH.

The band’s lineup is rounded out by bassist Chopper Anderson, Tesla drummer Troy Lucketta, and keyboardist Buck Johnson.

Whitford and St. Holmes – who originally teamed up to release a self-titled album in 1981 – have recorded a follow-up called “Reunion”, with plans to release it in 2016.

"It's a classic rock album - modern classic rock," said Whitford last fall. "I mean, that's what we do. We're all rockers, and we're not gonna try and do anything else but what we know and what we love.

“I think a lot of Aerosmith fans are really going to enjoy this record because all I ever hear is, 'When you gonna do another Toys? When you gonna do another Rocks?' That's what this album is. It's very straight-ahead, stripped-down classic rock."
