The Dead Daisies to Open for Whitesnake on Three Central Florida Dates

If you’re planning to catch Whitesnake on one or more of their upcoming Central Florida dates, get to the venue early because you’re not going to want to miss the openers, The Dead Daisies.

The Dead Daisies

The band features bassist Marco Mendoza (Thin Lizzy, Whitesnake), keyboard player Dizzy Reed (Guns N’ Roses), guitarist David Lowy (MINK, Red Phoenix), lead guitarist Richard Fortus (Guns N’ Roses, The Psychedelic Furs), vocalist John Corabi (Mötley Crüe, RATT), and drummer Brian Tichy (Ozzy Osbourne, Billy Idol).

This band has a pedigree, and their blend of bluesy groove-filled hard rock has been captured in a new album called Revolución that drops July 31. I listened to it over at Revolver Mag, and I think it’s sonically tasty from start to finish. Favorite tracks to check out are “Make the Best of It,” “Get Up, Get Ready,” “Something I Said,” and “With You and I.”

Here are the details for the upcoming Central Florida shows with Whitesnake in Melbourne, Orlando, and Clearwater:

Tickets for the King Center show in Melbourne on August 1 are $35 to $165, and are available online at and at the box office.
