The all-star band that many have waited to make their U.S. debut, Kings Of Chaos, will finally do so on November 18 at Avalon Hollywood in Los Angeles, California. The event is a benefit for Ric O’Barry’s Dolphin Project, an international organization dedicated to restoring freedom for all captive dolphins and whales. The amzig lineup of musicians that are part of the touring band include Glenn Hughes (Black Country Communion, Deep Purple, Black Sabbath, Trapeze), former Guns N’ Roses members Matt Sorum, Slash and Duff McKagan, Corey Taylor (Slipknot, Stone Sour) and Steve Stevens (Billy Idol, Atomic Playboys)
Kings Of Chaos perform the greatest hits of the members careers. The one-night-only benefit concert event, billed as “Tokyo Celebrates The Dolphin,” will be the group’s only North American performance in 2013.
“This is a rehearsal for the BIG one. We plan on taking ‘Tokyo Celebrates the Dolphin’ to Japan,” says Ric O’Barry, whose life and work was featured in the Academy Award-winning film The Cove. “We’ll add a few Japanese friends to our lineup and rock the socks off Tokyo. There isn’t a better way to bring Westerners and Japanese people together than rock and roll and the world should also know about the wonderful relationship between Japanese people and dolphins in the Tokyo Islands,” added O’Barry. “Dolphins are respected and protected in this part of Japan. It’s the opposite of Taiji, but very few people know about it. ‘Tokyo Celebrates the Dolphin’ will hopefully change this by bringing positive, international media attention to what is right about Japan.”
“I’m thrilled to bring a bunch of superstars together for a fun night with fans,” adds Matt Sorum, who has also played with Velvet Revolver. “The main thing is to keep creating awareness for the Dolphin Project and everyone involved.”
