Lita Ford Kicks Off Second Leg Of Summer Tour Tomorrow

August 8, 2012

Lita Ford Kicks Off Second Leg Of Summer Tour TomorrowAfter an extremely successful first leg of the “Rock of Ages” tour with Def Leppard and Poison, the reigning queen of metal Lita Ford, will be returning to the road tomorrow to kick off the second leg of the “Rock of Ages” tour. This leg kicks off in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida and runs through September 14th in Concord, California. Lita will also be playing select headline dates during this leg of the tour. A complete list of all dates can be found below.

Lita Ford is out on the road supporting her new album ‘Living Like A Runaway’, which was released this June via Steamhammer/SPV. The album is available in four configurations: a double LP, limited edition CD, standard CD and digital download.

Lita cannot wait to get back on stage and to play more new material from Living Like a Runaway: “The first leg of the tour went by too quickly… I guess I was having too much fun. I have really enjoyed seeing the fans shows singing along to the new songs from ‘Living Like a Runaway’, that is a real turn on for me. And it doesn’t hurt that I have one of the hottest and best bands today; Mitch Perry, Marty O’Brien and Scot Coogan. To the people in North America, here we come to rock your summer!!!”

Lita Ford teamed up with producer Gary Hoey and lyricist Michael Dan Ehmig to work on ‘Living Like a Runaway’. Together the team invested a lot of time and effort into this kick ass project: “We worked on the lyrics intensively to really give the songs a lot of meaning and that special emotional depth. I think that these are some of the best lyrics ever, period.” Ford is referring to numbers such as “Devil In My Head”, “Hate”, and “The Asylum” which see her bare her soul in a way which she has never done before.

“My intentions were to release this album, or something that sounded similar to this album, a long time ago — even before the ‘Wicked Wonderland’ album,” Ford told in a recent interview. “Unfortunately it didn’t work out that way — that other album was released before I had a chance to write my own material. I really feel that ‘Living Like A Runaway’ is a real Lita Ford record, and obviously by listening to it you can hear the difference. I really think this is my ‘return’ to the scene after being gone for so long.”
