Launch Radio Networks reports: A more complete itinerary has been revealed for the Zippo Hot Tour, which will begin on November 13 in Norfolk, Virginia with PAPA ROACH headlining. More than a thousand unsigned bands competed in "battle of the band" contests across the country to win the grand prize of an opening slot on the trek, which went this year to Philadelphia act STEALING DECEMBER. BULLETS AND OCTANE and (HED) P.E. will also be featured on the tour. PAPA ROACH will complete a string of opening dates for GUNS N' ROSES before taking its position at the top of the Zippo Hot Tour lineup.
PAPA ROACH begins its run with GUNS N' ROSES tomorrow night (Tuesday, October 24) at the GUNS tour opener in Sunrise, Florida.
PAPA ROACH recently released its fourth major label album, "The Paramour Sessions".
