WHITE LION frontman MIKE TRAMP set to kick off first US tour in 5 years.
White Lion/Freak Of Nature frontman Mike Tramp will be starting his first U.S. tour dates in over 5 Years, and his first ever acoustic tour of the U.S. – He will be performing WHITE LION classics as well and new material off of his brand new record “Cobblestone Street”. The tour is set to kick off on July 11th in Cranston, Rhode Island and go through August 16th, ending in Las Vegas at the Sunset Station Casino.
Mike Tramp’s “Cobblestone Street” is a departure from the sound that most people would expect from a singer, that has been around since White Lion crashed on to the Hard Rock scene in the 80’s. Rock fans have gotten to know Mike Tramp as a legit rock singer and frontman that looked like he was born to be just that. Therefore many might find it surprising that Tramp’s roots and musical upbringing, lie deeply buried in folk music.
Heavily influenced by fellow Danish artists with acoustic guitars and international stars like Bob Dylan, Neil Young and Bruce Springsteen, Tramp says that all of his songs through 35 years on the music stage, have always come from sitting with the old faithful acoustic guitar playing and singing. That White Lion songs like “When the Children Cry”, “Broken Heart” and “Wait”, and Freak Of Nature’s “Rescue Me” later have ended up as epic rock classics is just a question of arranging them in that way with the band in the rehearsal room, but all songs have always been fit to play around the campfire or in the back of a shady bar.
Last year Tramp traveled across Europe playing 40 shows, while driving and doing everything by himself.
“This is the most rewarding and fulfilling tour I have ever done”, says Mike “and that coincides with an album that represents all of that, and is just real completion to what I have worked so hard to accomplish.”
Mike Tramp has also just been announced for the “2014 Monsters Of Rock Cruise” departing out of Miami on March 29th and is currently routing a second leg of the US to coincide with it, including dates in Texas, Georgia, Alabama, Louisiana and Florida.
