UK all-girl band MCQUEEN has been confirmed as the opening act for VELVET REVOLVER on three dates in March at the "personal request" of VR guitarist Slash, according to a press release. The details are as follows:

March 15 - Liverpool University
March 16 - Leeds University
March 17 - Manchester Apollo

MCQUEEN recently tapped legendary U.S. rock A&R executive/manager Tom Zutaut — the man who is said to have signed and launched the careers of GUNS N' ROSES, MÖTLEY CRÜE and TESLA, among others — to be a part of the global MCQUEEN management team, working alongside UK's Seven Webster of 7pm Management.

MCQUEEN's debut album, "Break the Silence", was released last year on the Newcastle, UK-based independent rock label Demolition Records. The CD was helmed by up-and-coming producer Richie Kayvan in between a healthy touring schedule that's spanned the last two and a half years, with tracks being ferried to the U.S. to Joe Barresi (QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE, TOOL, WEEZER, BAD RELIGION) to mix.
