Zakk_Book_of_Shadows_2

Guitar legend Zakk Wylde recently unleashed his second studio album, Book of Shadows II, through eOne Music, spawning the hit single “Sleeping Dogs” (check it out below). The shredder is now ready to embark on his first North American tour in support of the new release. The lengthy 40-city jaunt goes down over the summer with help from support acts Tyler Bryant & The Shakedown and Jared James Nichols. New York’s only stop on the trek happens at Webster Hall on July 19 [tix on sale 5/11]. Zakk Wylde will also perform at “Heavy MTL” in Montreal in August. Check out all announced tour dates after the break.

Zakk just wrapped up a stint with the “Generation Axe Tour,” alongside similar icons Steve Vai, Yngwie Malmsteen, Nuno Bettencourt and Tosin Abasi. The tour hit the Theatre at Westbury last week (did you go?). A few quality clips from the NY show can be viewed at the end of this post.
