Godsmack’s Sully Erna Announces Dates for 2013 Solo East Coast Tour

Mary Ouellette, SheWillShootYou.com Godsmack may be taking some time off , but that doesn’t mean that Sully Erna is slowing down any. The vocalist has just announced six new East Coast solo shows where he’ll continue to promote his ‘Avalon’ solo album. The trek launches March 22 at Atlantic City’s House of Blues and the performances are expected to not only include material from Erna’s solo album, but also tracks from throughout his career. The singer, who was inspired by ’90s world fusion band Dead Can Dance, recruited the band’s percussionist, Niall Gregory, to join his solo outfit. The group also features Erna’s friend and past Godsmack guest vocalist Lisa Guyer. Erna has shown his fondness for the solo effort, continuing to promote it while balancing his Godsmack schedule and going so far as to issue a limited edition five-DVD box set that includes a full live performance of the album. In addition to the wealth of extras associated with the box set, there were also five “golden tickets” that were spread amongst the limited edition releases. Each of the tickets provided the owner to join Erna on a luxury trip to either Napa, Boston, New York, Las Vegas or Catalina Island (aka Avalon). Fans can also enter to win other Erna prizes without having to purchase the box set by visiting the singer’s ‘Avalon’ website here . Check out the full list of Erna’s tour dates below.
