Duff McKagan announces European tour

Duff McKagan has announced dates for a tour of Europe in support of his forthcoming album, “Tenderness.”

Backed by album producer Shooter Jennings and his band, the bassist will begin the three-week series in Warsaw, Poland on August 22, with shows scheduled to wrap up in Milan, Italy on September 8.

Tickets for the dates will go on sale on Friday, April 26 at 9 a.m. GMT.

Due May 31, “Tenderness” was inspired by McKagan’s travels on Guns N’ Roses’ multi-year Not In This Lifetime reunion tour, during which he used downtime to work on the project with Jennings.

“Fortune shone my way when Shooter and I began to work on the structures of the songs,” McKagan explains. “Shooter has a brilliant mind, and a seemingly endless musical catalogue bouncing around in his head that he’s ready to tap into at any moment. He believed in this thing from day one, and that gave me the confidence and energy to forge on.”

“Tenderness” is billed as the musical follow-up to the rocker’s 2015’s best-selling book, “How To Be A Man (And Other Illusions).”

The package will be available in multiple formats, including CD, digital and vinyl – with a limited-edition package on 180-gram yellow & red starburst vinyl that also adds the CD, an exclusive lithograph signed and numbered by McKagan, and a deluxe hard-cover book presenting photos and liner notes from the recording sessions.
