Lynch Mob Tickets
A hard rock band from America, Lynch Mob is the group formed in 1989 by George Lynch after he departed Dokken, the band he had known early success with. Switching between glam metal styles and hard rock, Lynch Mob's guitar-driven sound has appealed to mainstream audiences and glam-rock crowds alike. The band's first album remains their most successful to date, peaking at number 46 in the United States charts. The group have a formidable live sound, which has been captured on two live LPs. The first of these was Evil: Live, which hit the shelves in 2003. REvolution: Live! followed in 2006, which captured the energy of the band's fourth studio album, also called REvolution, in front of an appreciative audience.
Lynch Mob's career milestones
Following his much-talked about falling out with Dokken's frontman, Don Dokken, George Lynch set about finding a new outlet for his songwriting and guitar playing skills. The first lineup of the group also included Mick Brown, who had been the drummer in Dokken. Together with Anthony Esposito on bass and Oni Logan providing vocals, the former Dokken pair set about recording Wicked Sensation for Elektra Records. Regarded by many as their finest work, this was promoted by two singles, including “River of Love”, which got to number 19 in the Mainstream Rock charts in America.
Their debut success was followed up by Lynch Mob in 1992. This work featured a new singer, Robert Mason, and a cover version of “Tie Your Mother Down”, written by Brian May of Queen. It got to number 56 in the US album charts and led to two singles, which made it into the Mainstream Rock charts. In 1995, the band ended their tour in a degree of disarray and Lynch Mob was temporarily disbanded, with Lynch and Brown returning to Dokken for a spell.
By 1998, Lynch Mob had resurfaced. The group put together an EP entitled Syzygy and were booked on a 13-date tour of the United States, their most extensive for years. Smoke This followed in 1999 but did not perform well, largely due to a shift away from metal towards rapped rock music. As a consequence of this musical change, the band's subsequent tour was not as successful as had been hoped and the band split up once more.
Since 2003, Lynch Mob has been operating as a much more consistent metal band, with further studio albums and widespread touring. The Brotherhood was the band's much-awaited debut for Rat Pack Records, which came out in September 2017. A string of dates was booked at this time to promote the work.
