New York, NY (August 12, 2015)— After postponing a brief North American tour earlier this year, The Yardbirds are pleased to announce their 2015 Fall tour.
Kicking off on Friday, October 30 in Norfolk, CT, The Yardbirds – founding member and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee Jim McCarty, renowned guitarist Johnny A (Peter Wolf, Bobby Whitlock), bassist Kenny Aaronson (Bob Dylan, Billy Idol), singer/blues harpist/percussionist Myke Scavone (Ram Jam & Doughboys), and guitarist/singer John Idan – will tour throughout October and November.
Unfortunately, due to scheduling conflicts, guitarist Earl Slick will not be a part of this tour, as previously announced.
