Vinnie Vincent’s singer for two February 2019 shows will be Hair Nation frontman Jim Crean
After original Vinnie Vincent Invasion lead vocalist Robert Fleischman backed out of performing at Vinnie Vincent’s two comeback shows scheduled in Nashville, Tennessee, USA on February 8 and 9, 2019, Vincent was forced to find another singer to perform with him along with drummer Carmine Appice (Vanilla Fudge, Rod Stewart, Jeff Beck, Blue Murder) on drums, and bassist Tony Franklin (David Gilmour, Jimmy Page, The Firm).
Vincent has apparently chosen a relatively unknown singer but with loads of experience as his latest promo video announces that Jim Crean will be handling the lead vocals during the two concerts on February 8 and 9, 2019.
