Since 1979 the name “Dokken” has been associated with a hard rock/heavy metal sound and many famous international bands. Current and former members have worked in or with The Scorpions, Thin Lizzy, Great White, Quiet Riot, Judas Priest, Dio, Aerosmith, AC/DC, Kiss, Van Halen, Metallica, Whitesnake, Kingdom Come, and more – the list of musicians involved with the band reads like a “Who’s Who” of rock and metal. Through it all, the band has retained Don Dokken (Vocals) and “Wild” Mick Brown (Drums), adding Chris McCarvill (Bass) and Jon Levin (Guitars) – although Jon wasn’t on this tour, his strings being filled by Ira Black, who has also played with I Am Morbid, Westfield Massacre, Metal Church, Vicious Rumors, Heathen, and Lizzy Borden.
