Los Angeles hard rock act DC4 will take its "American Megarock Show" on the road for a quick run through the American Southwest from August 23 to August 26, with shows in Nevada and Arizona. "We haven't been to Arizona in a while so we are looking forward to killing it out there!" says drummer Shawn Duncan. "We've been getting a lot of offers out of California lately so needless to say we are really looking forward to this little adventure and what can be better than starting out in Las Vegas?!"
DC4/ex-DIO guitarist Rowan Robertson will not be joining DC4 on this run as he has a prior commitment to fulfill with Billy Ray Cyrus. Taking his spot for these dates will be the band's friend and respected session guitarist Omar Gusmao. Robertson says, "I'm going to be doing some shows with Billy Ray Cyrus in 2013 and, as it turns out, he scheduled some warm-up shows for the end of August. This, of course, means, and I hope everyone will understand, that this leaves me unavailable for the shows in Nevada and Arizona. It's a shame as I was looking forward to it but I do have to fulfill my obligation with Billy."
Rowan remains in DC4 and will join the band on future dates.
DC4 is currently writing material for its sophomore Metal Blade effort.
