Warrant reunites for tour with Cinderella


Warrant (2008) WARRANT got its fill of 'cherry pie' in the '80s and '90s, but apparently that was not enough to squelch the band's hunger. With the return of its original members for the first time in almost 15 years, WARRANT will storm back to the stage this summer for a massive tour with Cinderella, a featured slot on Rocklahoma and a handful of other dates.

For the first time since 1994, original WARRANT members JANI LANE (vocals), JOEY ALLEN (lead guitar), JERRY DIXON (bass), ERIK TURNER (guitar) and STEVEN SWEET (drums) will grace stages across the land together. They'll deliver a brand new and exciting stage show encompassing material from their first two multi-platinum albums Dirty Rotten Filthy Stinking Rich and Cherry Pie, plus the gold album Dog Eat Dog including such unforgettable hits as "Cherry Pie," "Down Boys," "Heaven," "Sometimes She Cries," "Uncle Tom's Cabin" and many more.

"Are you kidding me?!! We are chomping at the bit to get out this summer and rock!" says Jani Lane, lead singer and songwriter of Warrant. "The original Warrant has mucho grande chemistry! When we did the first rehearsal in 14 years I just stepped back in awe and thought...'Man, now this is Warrant!!' I think fans will have a similar experience this summer!!'"

Their summer-long trek kicks off with a show with Motley Crue in Montreal June 22 at Parc Jean Drapeau and then on their own in Toronto June 23 at the Phoenix Concert Theater. Next, from July 2 until August 16, they'll hook up with Cinderella, Lynch Mob and Lynam for a national tour. They'll round out the summer with a closing show with Alice Cooper August 17 at the Fortune Bay Casino in Tower, MN.

WARRANT, formed in 1984 by Erik Turner and Jerry Dixon, forged their way into the American glam rock scene in February 1989 with the release of Dirty Rotten Filthy Stinking Rich (Columbia Records). A blistering world tour of 262 shows helped push the 10-track record over double platinum status—2.5 million to be exact. The CD spawned three singles-–"Down Boys," "Sometimes She Cries" and "Heaven," the latter of which alone has sold over 750,000 units.
