DON DOKKEN Performs Acoustically At 'A Nightmare On Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors' 30th-Anniversary Event
June 5, 2017
Don Dokken performed an acoustic set at the special "A Nightmare On Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors" event on Saturday, June 3 at Underground Arts in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Fan-filmed video footage of his appearance can be seen below.
The ultimate Wizard World Horror Fest celebration marked the 30th anniversary of the Chuck Russell-directed "A Nightmare On Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors" film and included a live commentary and question-and-answer session with both Russell and the movie's star Heather Langenkamp.
DOKKEN performed the infamous hit single "Dream Warriors" on the film's soundtrack. The song was released as a single in 1987, landing at No. 22 on the Hot Mainstream Rock Tracks chart, and also appeared on DOKKEN's fourth album, "Back For The Attack".
"Dream Warriors" was recorded by the classic lineup of DOKKEN — Don Dokken, guitarist George Lynch, bassist Jeff Pilson and drummer "Wild" Mick Brown — which completed a short Japanese tour last fall.
A DOKKEN concert DVD focusing on the band's reunion tour is tentatively due before the end of the year or in early 2018. The set will feature footage from two of the Japanese shows — including Tokyo — as well as the band's very first comeback gig, which was held on September 30, 2016 at Badlands Pawn Guns Gold And Rock 'N' Roll in Sioux Falls, South Dakota.
