Shred master Zakk Wylde is presently on the road on a select number of meet & greet appearances surrounding the launch of his new company Wylde Audio, which sells everything from his signature guitars to accessories to exclusive merch. Attendees will have the opportunity to meet the guitar legend in-store at various Guitar Centers across the nation, to test out his new line of Wylde Audio guitars, plus more.
The tour kicked off on Thursday (9/8) in Phoenix, and is scheduled to cruise through New York City for a stop at the Guitar Center in Union Square (25 W. 14th St.) on Sept. 16 at 6PM. Best of all, these events are free to the public, though limited to capacity (arrive early). A complete list of remaining in-stores can be viewed below.
Earlier this year saw the release of Zakk‘s second studio album, Book of Shadows II, via eOne Music. Wylde recently premiered a new music video for his latest single “Sleeping Dogs” featuring Slipknot / Stone Sour leadman Corey Tayler (watch below).
Additionally and as previously noted, Zakk Sabbath – the Black Sabbath cover band featuring Zakk, along with bassist Rob “Blasko” Nicholson (Ozzy Osbourne, ex-Rob Zombie) and drummer Joey Castillo (ex-Danzig, ex-Queens of the Stone Age) – are set to play a completely sold-out show at BK’s Saint Vitus on October 31st, with help from Ruby The Hatchet and Jim Florentine.
