The Dead Daisies will perform for the troops this fall during a mini-tour with the USO.
The band announced this week that it will embark on its first-ever USO tour. The tour, which is also in support of the band’s latest full-length studio recording Make Some Noise, will take the band to three U.S. military bases in South Korea beginning with Camp Casey on October 30. The base is located in Dongducheon-Si, South Korea.
K-16 Air Base at Songnam, South Korea is next on Oct. 31. The band’s last date on its mini-tour will be Nov. 1 at Osan Air Base in Pyeongtaek-Si, South Korea.
Bassist Marco Mendoza and front man John Corabi both have family members who served in the military. Mendoza’s father served in the Air Force while Corabi’s was served in the United States Army. Their family history makes the performances especially important for them.
“It’s a great time to pay respect and give a little back,” Mendoza said. Corabi shared Mendoza’s thoughts, adding the band’s performance will be a bit of home for the men and women in uniform.
“We will bring a little bit of America to you guys! We can’t wait to get over there and play. It’s going to be a blast!,” he said.
