In an interview conducted Monday (July 21) by the "Monsters In The Morning" radio show, DOKKEN vocalist Don Dokken confirmed that guitarist George Lynch will take the stage with the band for one song at the upcoming Rock The Bayou festival, set to take place August 29 – September 1 on the Rock The Bayou Grounds, located between Kirby Drive and Fannin Avenue, directly south of Loop 610 in Houston, Texas (where AstroWorld was a seasonally operated theme park).

DOKKEN will take part in a personal appearance and CD signing on Tuesday, July 29 at Mohegan Sun in Uncasville, Connecticut. The event will take place at the Spin Street Stage, located in the shops at Mohegan Concourse immediately following the band's show in the arena with POISON.

Due to the short timeframe of this event and the huge number of fans expected, the band will only be signing copies of its new album, "Lightning Strikes Again", which was released on May 13 via Rhino Records.

In addition to the regular European version of "Lightning Strikes Again", Frontiers Records released a special limited edition of the CD on April 11 in a glossy slipcase. The limited-edition version includes an exclusive bonus track for Europe, entitled "Sunset Superstar".

Fan-filmed video footage of LYNCH MOB performing the DOKKEN classic "Into the Fire" at the Rocklahoma festival on Saturday, July 12 in Pryor, Oklahoma can be viewed below (clip uploaded by YouTube user "johnnyspudgun1").

Sitting behind the drum kit for LYNCH MOB's performance at Rocklahoma was CINDERELLA's Fred Coury, who stepped in for Tommy Aldridge after Tommy answered the call for the drumming duties in THIN LIZZY. Joining him for the set were guitarist George Lynch (ex-DOKKEN),vocalist Oni Logan and bassist Marco Mendoza (WHITESNAKE, THIN LIZZY)

LYNCH MOB's U.S. tour with CINDERELLA, WARRANT and LYNAM was cancelled after CINDERELLA frontman Tom Keifer's left vocal cord hemorrhaged during rehearsal, thereby making it impossible for him to sing in the immediate future.
