DUFF MCKAGAN'S LOADED: South American Dates Announced

DUFF MCKAGAN'S LOADED, the band led by VELVET REVOLVER/ex-GUNS N' ROSES bassist Duff McKagan, will tour South America in early November. The dates are as follows:

Nov. 05 - Willy Dixon - Rosario, Argentina
Nov. 07 - Pepsi Fest - Buenos Aires, Argentina
Nov. 08 - Maquinaria Fest - Sao Paulo, Brazil
Nov. 11 - Teatro Caupolican - Santiago, Chile

As previously reported, McKagan will guest on "The BJ Shea Morning Experience" this Wednesday (September 30) on the Seattle radio station KISW 99.9 FM. Duff will appear at approximately 8:20 a.m. PST.

Drummer Geoff Reading recently left DUFF MCKAGAN'S LOADED and was replaced by Isaac Carpenter (LOUDERMILK, GOSLING, OURS, THE EXIES).

"Sick", the latest full-length album from DUFF MCKAGAN'S LOADED, landed at position No. 43 on the Top New Artist Albums (Heatseekers) chart, which lists the best-selling albums by new and developing artists, defined as those who have never appeared in the Top 100 of The Billboard 200.

"Sick" was released in North America on April 7 via Century Media Records. An e-card for the CD, which was produced by Martin Feveyear (PRESIDENTS OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, KINGS OF LEON), is available at this location.

In addition to McKagan, LOADED features bassist Jeff Rouse (VENDETTA RED, ALIEN CRIME SYNDICATE) and guitarist Mike Squires (ALIEN CRIME SYNDICATE).

LOADED released "Live Episode" (1999) and "Dark Days" (2001), before other commitments meant LOADED were put on the back burner to some extent, although they never split up.

DUFF MCKAGAN'S LOADED's five-song EP, "Wasted Heart", was released in September 2008 via Century Media Records.
