The Pulse of Radio reports that GODSMACK lead singer Sully Erna will head out on a solo acoustic tour beginning May 1, according to a post at the band's official web site. Erna has four shows confirmed so far, with more to be announced, and the post says that the vocalist plans to perform "songs from GODSMACK's decade-long repertoire and several new solo pieces in what he describes as a 'living room' atmosphere." Erna himself said in the statement, "My goal doing these shows is that fans get to experience me as I see myself. Not filtered through the fame and the hype."
Erna is also said to be working on songs for a solo recording project.
GODSMACK went on hiatus at the end of 2007 after touring in support of its fourth album, 2006's "IV". The band issued a greatest hits collection, called "Good Times Bad Times...Ten Years of Godsmack", this past December.
The other three members of GODSMACK recorded and released an album under the name ANOTHER ANIMAL last fall.
Confirmed Sully Erna solo dates:
May 01 - Niagara Falls, NY - Seneca Casino
May 03 - Wilmington, DE - Grand Opera House
May 16 - Atlantic City, NJ - The Music Box at Borgata Casino
May 17 - Albany, NY - The Egg
