Dokken exploded out of the hard rock/heavy metal scene in Los Angeles in the early 1980s. “Breaking the Chains” with its catchy title track, set the stage for Dokken becoming the most dominant force in the world of Melodic Hard Rock. Such classic albums as “Tooth and Nail”, “Under Lock and Key” and “Back for the Attack” all became Multi-Platinum selling smashes. The band hit stadium status in 1988 and it seemed Dokken was on the verge of superstardom. But like so many other bands that have come before and after them, Don Dokken broke up his group in 1989.
Fast forward to 1994, Dokken was offered a recording contract on the condition the group had to be original members. The band released the appropriately titled “Dysfunctional” album in 1995 but just as they were on the verge of "taking it all the way", as Don Dokken put it, again the group began to unravel and soon after guitarist George Lynch left the group, replaced by Reb Beach (Winger, Whitesnake).
George Lynch’s guitar abilities and songwriting made him one of the most influential rock guitarists. After parting ways with Dokeen, Lynch took a different approach... enter Lynch Mob. Working with lynch mob was a highly scrutinized and anticipated project. In just three years Lynch Mob release tewo records and embarked on two workwide tours.
For years fans have been clamoring for a reunion of George Lynch back on stage with Dokken. Outside of a short tour of Japan in 2016, timing has never been right for anything to happen. That’s all about to change as both Dokken and Lynch Mob will be doing standard sets spanning their catalogs from the early 80’s through today with an encore appearance with George back on stage with Dokken to close the show!
