DON DOKKEN Performs DOKKEN Classics At 'Ultimate Jam Night' (Video)

Don Dokken performed three classic DOKKEN songs this past Tuesday night (March 5) at the "Ultimate Jam Night" at the Whisky A Go Go in West Hollywood, California. Joining him for renditions of "In My Dreams", "It's Not Love" and "Tooth & Nail" were bassist Sean McNabb (LYNCH MOB, DOKKEN), Ira Black (I AM MORBID, DARK SKY CHOIR) and Matt Starr (MR. BIG, ACE FREHLEY).

This week's "Ultimate Jam Night" celebrated the 1988 "Monsters Of Rock" tour, which featured DOKKEN, SCORPIONS, METALLICA, KINGDOM COME and VAN HALEN.

DOKKEN is currently working on material on a new studio album, tentatively due in 2020 via Silver Lining Music, the label owned by Thomas Jensen, one of the founders of Germany's Wacken Open Air festival. The group's first disc since 2012's "Broken Bones" will feature DOKKEN's current lineup — Dokken, drummer Mick Brown, bassist Chris McCarvill and guitarist Jon Levin.

Last fall, Don told "The Classic Metal Show" that his band's next album would be "a classic-sounding DOKKEN record" with "straight-ahead, catchy choruses, cool guitar riffs, burning guitar solos" and "nice grooves." He added: "The dilemma is to try to do that 30 years later without just ripping myself off and regurgitating old DOKKEN riffs."

DOKKEN's classic lineup of Dokken, guitarist George Lynch, bassist Jeff Pilson and Brown completed a short Japanese tour in October 2016, marking the first time in 21 years the four performed together.

A DOKKEN concert DVD focusing on the band's reunion tour, "Return To The East Live (2016)", was made available last year.
