Vinnie Vincent Postpones Comeback Shows
Fans looking forward to Vinnie Vincent's first full-length concerts in more than 30 years will have to wait a little longer. The former Kiss guitarist has postponed the two shows in Memphis scheduled for next month due to "additional scheduling and logistical requirements by the promoter."
"Vinnie is ready to rock and roll and is disappointed by the postponement," Promoter Derek Christopher said in a statement on Vincent's website, "but we needed extra time to add and confirm additional guests for the show. We wanted to make sure it's done right."
Instead of Dec. 7-8, Vincent will now perform at the Guest House at Graceland on Feb. 8-9. Ticket holders are being asked to confirm that they will show up for the new dates or request a refund using this link.
However, Vincent was able to announce a couple of the musicians who will be participating: Carmine Appice (drums) and Tony Franklin (bass) will be joining Vincent and and former Vinnie Vincent Invasion singer Robert Fleischman. Other special guests will be announced in the future.
The concert had originally been billed as an acoustic-only show with Fleischman. But back in August, he said that he was adding "full shred" to the show. They will be his first full-length concerts since Aug. 25, 1988, but he has played onstage recently. In late October, he performed three Kiss songs with Four by Fate at a pre-launch party for the Kiss Kruise. Vincent stepped in after Bob Kulick dropped out due to a contractual dispute.
