Duff McKagan's Loaded: touring Europe with Mötley Crüe; festival shows confirmed!
Right in time for the release of the "Sick" album, Duff McKagan's LOADED are confirmed for several European summer festivals and shows as support of Mötley Crüe. Both bands met last October when LOADED was playing two shows in Japan — the Loud Park 08 festival with Mötley Crüe, and an intimate headlining show the next night at club Quattro in Tokyo.
Mötley Crüe bassist Nikki Sixx:
"We had a bad-ass show in Tokyo [Loud Park Festival] and there were a ton of cool bands on the bill, but most notably was Duff McKagan's LOADED. [Next day], we headed down to a place here in Tokyo and saw Duff play a tiny club... insane. Every song was a 10. I got an EP and it's all I'm listening to right now. If you don't have the EP yet, it's called 'Wasted Heart' and it's a must-have."
"Nikki Sixx came down to the Quattro show. I've known that guy now for over 20 years and that dude is the real article. Let me tell ya, sometimes the last thing you want to do on a night off on a tour is go out to see another fucking band! Nikki not only came down, but he also stayed for the whole show. A class act."
So don't miss the chance to see legendary former Guns N' Roses bassist Duff McKagan’s new band LOADED as well as his legendary buddies Mötley Crüe the same night.
