The Dead Daisies Confirm Canadian Tour Celebrating ‘Best Of’ Album



The Dead Daisies

Ten years ago The Dead Daisies burst onto the music scene with a mission to gather some of the finest musicians in the world and, simply put, play some good old fashioned, no-bullshit Rock’N’Roll!!

Returning to the line-up for this tour is the incomparable frontman, John Corabi. He joins his mates Doug Aldrich, David Lowy, and Brian Tichy, with renowned bass player Michael Devin (Whitesnake) joining the band for the first time. Get more info and your details here:

Joining the band as direct support on all the Canadian tour stops except Vancouver is JUNO Award-nominated, Toronto-based rock band Hard and Ease.

Comments David Lowy:

“It’s been an amazing decade with The Daisies! We’ve rocked out with some of the best in the business, toured the globe, released eight albums and are thrilled to be showcasing the body of work from over the last decade with our upcoming ‘Best Of’ Album release and tour. I’m excited to be welcoming John Corabi back to the band. Can’t wait to get back on the road again in 2023 to perform for our fans!”

To mark this milestone, a collection of songs from six of the band’s previous studio albums have been chosen. The upcoming Best Of album (pre-order here) release will include some of the collectives’ favourite tracks and others that have become a staple part of every Daisies touring set list. Two previously unreleased tracks from the last recording session are also included. It will be available on double CD & Vinyl on August 18th.
