NITA STRAUSS Kicks Off 'The Guitar Collective' Tour (Video)
November 21, 2018
ALICE COOPER axemaiden Nita Strauss kicked off "The Guitar Collective" U.S. tour with renowned soloist Angel Vivaldi on November 19 in New Bedford, Massachusetts. Fan-filmed video footage of the second concert of the trek, which took place November 20 in Philadelphia, can be seen below.
"The Guitar Collective" will visit several major cities, ending in Asbury Park, New Jersey on December 21. Vivaldi and Strauss are co-headlining each date of the tour with support from special guest Jacky Vincent (ex-FALLING IN REVERSE). "The Guitar Collective 2018" marks Strauss's live solo debut.
VIP and general admission tickets are available now via www.angelvivaldiofficial.com/tour. VIP meet-and-greets with Vivaldi and Strauss include a question-and-answer session, a signed tour poster, and an HD photo with Angel and Nita.
The main goal of "The Guitar Collective" tour, now in its second year, is to give fans of instrumental guitar music a chance to discover new artists, and for those artists to branch out to new fans. "The Guitar Collective" founder Angel Vivaldi sees the tour as a place where people can come year after year to discover new virtuosos in an exciting live setting, not just behind their computers and phones.
Vivaldi said: "The past four years have given us some of today's most incredible guitarists. After last year's 'Guitar Collective', which included SCALE THE SUMMIT and Andy James, I knew I had to make this 'modern G3' an annual outing. This year, not only do we have Nita Strauss's live solo debut, we've also got Jacky Vincent, who both will continue to carry the torch of instrumental guitar music for generations to come. I can't wait to get on stage night after night to jam with my friends."
Strauss added: "These will be my first shows ever as a solo artist, and I couldn't have hoped for a better fitting tour. I've been a huge fan of Angel's since I first discovered his music and became an even bigger fan when I saw his incredible live performance. Angel and Jacky are two of the most innovative and exciting solo guitarists out there in the scene today, and I am beyond honored to share the stage with them on this tour!"
