Dave Davies of the Kinks with special guest The Smithereens
As lead guitarist and co-founder of The Kinks, Dave Davies was a driving force behind one of the most influential rock bands ever. Like the Beatles and Rolling Stones, The Kinks helped alter the American music landscape during the British Invasion of the '60s. His groundbreaking, distorted guitar tone and classic guitar riffs gave the band a harder edge that resonated with young fans. That raw sound paved the way for punk, heavy metal and grunge years later and inspired bands from Van Halen to Green Day.
A prolific songwriter, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee's music has been featured in films by John Carpenter and on TV shows like The Sopranos.
He returns to the U.S. to indulge audiences in an array of Kinks classics, a few solo favorites and tracks from his new album, Open Road.
