VELVET REVOLVER Set To Launch Headlining 'Electric Wonderland Show' Tour

Coming off their Grammy Award for "Best Hard Rock Performance" ("Slither"), VELVET REVOLVER are set to launch their headlining North American "Electric Wonderland Show" arena tour March 22 in Montreal. Special guests HOOBASTANK will open the West Coast leg of the tour. This trek will follow the explosive rockers' sold-out shows in America, Canada, Europe and Japan as well as in New Zealand and Australia where they’re currently touring through February 27. VELVET REVOLVER has teamed with I Love All Access to provide a variety of VIP ticket packages. Go to for details.

VELVET REVOLVER are on the road in connection with their platinum-plus debut "Contraband" album, which has sold over three million copies worldwide. It features the #1 rock single "Slither", as well as the band’s other #1 rock hit "Fall To Pieces", plus the blazing new single "Dirty Little Thing".

In other news, VELVET REVOLVER's new video for "Dirty Little Thing" was premiered on Fuse Friday, February 18. The clip — directed by Motion Theory — features live performance and animation by famed Japanese illustrator Rockin' Jellybean, who's known for his edgy illustrations of sex goddesses and muscle cars. VELVET REVOLVER is seen performing live inside an animated runaway train while the exterior and surrounding environment are animated. The train flies around the world, burning through Japan, the UK, New York and Hollywood.
