Dokken and Lynch Mob bringing the hits to Sunset in 2021.
The world-famous Whisky A Go-Go on the Sunset strip has been working overtime to keep rock alive while the nightclub is temporarily closed because of the coronavirus. The Sunset Strip landmark has been hosting livestream concerts from the Whisky stage by bands like Black Veil Brides, and on September 19, guitar goddess Orianthi will be busting some strings for a livestream show, and thrash metal monsters Armored Saint headline a livestream set on October 10.
Now, the Whisky has revealed another amazing show to look forward, and it’s not a lifestream show either. It’s a live, in-your-face double whammy concert bill featuring Lynch Mob and Dokken performing at a special two-night headlining gig at Whisky on Feb. 5 and 6. Lynch Mob is, of course, fronted by guitar hero George Lynch from Dokken. And it will be great to see the “Wicked Sensation” rocker back on the Whisky’s stage and rockin’ alongside longtime on again/off again bandmate Don Dokken.
Since their days in the early ‘80s when they helped pioneer the now iconic Sunset Strip heavy metal sound and scene, both George Lynch and Don Dokken have been pretty active in keeping the Sunset Strip lit up with some world-class heavy metal. In 2018, Lynch Mob headlined the Rainbow Bar & Grill’s 46th Annual Party in the Parking Lot, which was a multi-band, all-day event, but it was Lynch who had stolen the show. And in 2019, Don Dokken made a surprise appearance at the Whisky A Go-Go’s “Ultimate Jam Night Hollywood” event to cover a few Dokken hits, including “In My Dreams” and “It’s Not Love,” which tore the roof off of the Whisky.
All things considered, you’d have to assume that the Whisky has reinforced its roof for February‘s shows featuring two of heavy metal’s most revered icons. The shows are set to kick off at 7:45 p.m. and tickets start at $65.
See you at the shows!
