Jeff Scott Soto Announces 2013 European ‘Damage Control’ Tour
December 2, 2012
It doesn’t take too long for news to break in the music business and already the social media is beginning to buzz with details of a forthcoming tour by melodic rock star Jeff Scott Soto — his first full European tour since 2009. Although its been in the planning for months, the singer’s organisation is only now ready to release the outline of what promises to be a stunning road trip right around Europe. Details of some venues have yet to be announced, but confirmed shows can be found at www.jeffscottsoto.com.
Jeff will be touring with the most recent band line-up comprising of Jorge Salan (guitar), Fernando Mainer (bass), ‘BJ’ (guitar, keyboards and vocals) and Edu Cominato (drums and vocals) and will be showcasing his current solo album ‘Damage Control’ as well as tracks from his solo and frontman roles right across his outstanding career.
Also, Frontiers Records has officially issued the third and final video from the ‘Damage Control’ album, “NeverEnding War”. The song was written by Jeff Scott Soto and Joel Hoekstra (Night Ranger) and also features Jeff’s son Jason and stepdaughter Grace within the contents of the video.
To add to the excitement of this particular tour, the majority of dates will be supported by none other than his guitarist Jorge Salan’s solo trio as well as an exciting new band from Athens, Greece called Danger Angel!
Soto recorded vocals to one of Salan’s songs on the ‘Chronicles Of An Evolution’ album back in 2007, which is what led to bringing him into JSS’s band, and Jorge’s newest album, ‘Sexto Asalto (Sixth Assault)’ will be available along with his other releases at each show. To watch the latest video/single “Cero 16”, visit www.jorgesalan.com.
Danger Angel came to Jeff’s attention back in 2009 when he was asked to participate on a track for their 2010 debut album. The band parted ways with their vocalist and brought in a more prominent vocalist named ‘MT’ to help them find a new direction and focus, recruiting Soto to produce their follow-up album, ‘Revolutia’, of which Jeff was “beyond proud to be a part.” Jeff also sings most of the backing vocals on the album as well as sharing some lead vocals on the single “When I’m Gone”. Visit www.dangerangelband.com for more details about this upcoming new band.
It is with great pride that Jeff is ‘presenting’ these two acts as a sort of ‘Soto-palooza’ roadshow in which he implores, “EVERYONE to be on time for a great night of music and many surprises throughout the show, it will be an evening of great rock ‘n roll, fun and memories so get there at the time the venues say to get there!!”
