GUNS N' ROSES guitarist Richard Fortus will be playing the following dates with German singer NENA:
Oct. 14 – Bozen, ITA @ Sporthalle
Oct. 15 – Innsbruck, AUT @ Open Air
Fortus makes an appearance on NENA's new album, which has been certified platinum in Germany.
In a recent interview with Splat, Fortus explained how he hooked up with Nena.
"I started working with her after her drummer/MD (Van Romaine) reccomended me," he said. "I had known a few different players from New York that had worked with her in the past (Andy Hess from the BLACK CROWES and GOV'T MULE, Tony Bruno from JOAN JETT, etc.),and they all had great things to say about her. She is the real deal. She has that ability to captivate a stadium full of people and have them all in the palm of her hand. She's an amazing talent and a real joy to work with."
