JOHN 5 Announces North American Tour

 Incendiary guitarist and solo artist, John 5, has today announced his North American 2021 tour taking place this summer. Joining him on his 22 date trek will be blues-rock guitarist and singer Jared James Nichols and industrial rockers Black Satellite. Joining the tour for shows in Sioux Falls, Sioux City and Lincoln will be YouTuber, musician, and multi-instrumentalist Sarah Longfield. Tickets are on sale now from John5.com.
Speaking on his newly announced tour, John 5 shares
“I’ve always been excited to go on tour but this time it’s amplified by a million. I can’t wait to see everybody’s faces and say hello to everybody coming out to the shows. I’m very excited to have Jared James Nichols, Black Satellite and Sarah Longfield joining us on this run. I’m sure we’re gonna have a great time.”
 John 5 is one of modern rock’s most highly revered guitarists. Notorious for his lightning fast playing and enormous versatility, he quickly became a sought after session guitarist scoring high profile gigs at the age of 18 touring with Lita Ford and k.d. lang and in the studio playing with Rob Halford’s industrial metal project Two and David Lee Roth’s The DLR Band album.
  Most recently, John 5 combined forces with Rob Zombie, Nikki Sixx and Tommy Clufetos to create a supergroup dubbed The LA Rats and record I’ve Been Everywhere, the lead track for upcoming movie “The Ice Road” starring Liam Neeson.
  John 5 has been hard at work on his next solo album. More news on that coming later this year.
