The Ladies of Rock are Touring!

Halestorm, In This Moment, New Years Day and Stitched Up Heart are touring!

Halestorm’s Lzzy Hale says “It’s finally happening! We are touring with our bad ass sisters and brothers..”

“I am beyond thrilled to be sharing the stage with such strong women.” says Ash Costello from A New Years Day. “I’m very excited for an all female fronted tour, because in all my years of touring, this is the very first time I’ll have been a part of one.”

Maria Brink from In This Moment “I am very excited about being part of such an empowering, divine, female fronted tour. It is very rare in rock music to have a movement like Lzzy and I are already discussing the possibility of more tours with this energy in the future. Let the Amazons rise” says Maria Brink from In This Moment.

Mixi from Stitched Up Heart adds, “All of these bands have been on the top of my bucket list to tour with. This is going to be such an incredible experience!”
