WARLOCK TO TOUR WHOLE ALBUM
Tommy Bolan has joined Doro Pesch at Sweden Rock Festival and is planning to tour U.S.A.
Tommy Bolan of Warlock recently rejoined Doro Pesch at the Sweden Rock Festival to commemorate the 30th anniversary of their most successful album, "Triumph and Agony". Now they've decided to take the show on the road for a U.S. tour. Schecter sat down with Tommy Bolan to get his take on this huge reunion.
How did this first come about?
Doro had called me towards the end of last year asking if I would be interested in playing live with her to celebrate the anniversary of the Warlock "Triumph and Agony" cd, which we had recorded together.
Have you and Doro kept in contact all these years?
Actually yes - we have always remained great friends and I have even jammed some Warlock tunes with her and her band a few times at her recent shows here in L.A.
Was this something you've been waiting for?
I have always been very proud of my work with Warlock and I have always had a great chemistry with Doro, so it's just really cool that this has all lined up.
Do you think this could turn into a world tour?
We have already played Sweden Rock and Norway Rock Festival and the USA are next. We (Doro and her band and I) are playing the entire "Triumph and Agony" cd live, which has never been done before. There are a lot of opportunities being presented ;)
How was it getting back on stage with everyone after all these years and on such huge festivals with so many people in the audience?
Doro and her band and crew are awesome, and made me feel very welcome. It was like coming home :) and there is always an awesome/unique vibe and feel for me when I play with Doro.
Do you think these performances are going to lead to some new Warlock music, or are these shows only a "one-time thing"?
There is a lot of "cool" talk and discussion going on and I think the future will be very rockin'!
