The reunited TROUBLEguitarist Rick Wartell, vocalist Eric Wagner, guitarist Bruce Franklin, drummer Jeff Olson and bassist Ron Holznerwill be performing the first two headlining shows since reforming the group on May 3rd and May 4th at RockHouse USA (formerly Riley's Rock House) in Aurora, Illinois (TROUBLE's hometown), a Southwestern Chicago suburb. The group's previously-announced gig on April 27th at the same venue has now been cancelled.As previously reported, TROUBLE have thus far written nearly an album's worth of material for the band's long-awaited comeback CD (the follow-up to 1995's Plastic Green Head), tentatively entitled Seven, but will continue to compose tracks for the foreseeable future before making plans to enter the studio to record the effort. The quintet have received several offers to play the summer festivals in Europe, including a rumored Wacken Open Air Festival appearance, but have reportedly opted to pass on them as they continue working on the album, which is tentatively due in early 2003.
