Dokken is an American heavy metal and hard rock band that formed in 1978. They split up in 1989 but reformed four years later. The group accumulated numerous charting singles, sold more than 10 million albums worldwide, and was nominated for a Grammy in 1989.
Opening Act: hiPNOSTIC
6:30 pm - 11:00 pm
Since then Dokken has toured extensively with Mick Brown on drums (BJ Zampa filling in on drums when Mick is busy touring with Ted Nugent). Sean McNabb, ex of Quiet Riot and Great White, is on bass, along with Levin on guitar and Dokken on vocals. In 2010, the band opened for the Scorpions on select dates of their U.S. tour. On 1 March 2010 Dokken digitally released Greatest Hits, a collection of re-recorded songs from their ’80’s albums with two new tracks, to iTunes and Amazon.com. The physical album with additional tracks was released on King Records (Japan) on 21 April 2010 and is available in the United States through Cleopatra Records.
In 2012, Dokken followed up "Lightning Strikes Again" with the hard-hitting "Broken Bones". This release showed growth from the band musically while incorporating the classic sound from the band’s past as well as their previous album. The song “Empire” was the first single, and also featured a futuristic video with it.
As you can tell, the road that Dokken has traveled has been long and complicated, but there is no end in sight. Dokken continues to tour and rock the world with their brand of driving heavy metal. What’s next on this road? You’ll just have to jump on for the ride and see for yourself!
