Nov. 13, 2013 (Los Angeles) – Rock supergroup Kings of Chaos, the new touring project featuring former Guns N’ Roses members Slash, Matt Sorum and Duff McKagan, along with Glenn Hughes (Black Country Communion/Deep Purple), Corey Taylor (Slipknot/Stone Sour) and Steve Stevens (Billy Idol) will perform in their only North American show in 2013 – an intimate, one-night-only concert and VIP event benefiting Ric O’Barry’s Dolphin Project, Nov. 18 at Avalon Hollywood. Tickets are $75 for general admission and $350 for a V.I.P. experience, including special seating for the show, gift bags and photos with the Kings of Chaos, are on sale now at http://dolphinproject.brownpapertickets.com, or by calling Brown Paper Tickets 24/7 event specialists at 1-800-838-3006.
Kings of Chaos will play the greatest hits from all of its superstar members and additional special guest performers. “I’m thrilled to bring a bunch of heavyweights together for a fun night with fans,” said Matt Sorum, who has also played with Velvet Revolver. “The main thing is to keep creating awareness for the Dolphin Project and everyone involved.”
The Dolphin Project is an international organization dedicated to saving dolphins from slaughter and exploitation. “This is a rehearsal for the BIG one. We plan on taking the show to Japan,” says Ric O’Barry, whose life and work was featured in the Academy Award-winning film The Cove. “We’ll add a few Japanese friends to our lineup and rock the socks off Tokyo. There isn’t a better way to bring Westerners and Japanese people together than rock and roll and the world should also know about the wonderful relationship between Japanese people and dolphins in the Tokyo Islands,” added O’Barry. “Dolphins are respected and protected in this part of Japan. It's the opposite of Taiji, but very few people know about it. ‘This concert will hopefully change this by bringing positive, international media attention to what is right about Japan.”
Expected attendees include Ric & Lincoln O’Barry, Juliette Lewis, Tony Kanal. Kristen Bauer, Les Stroud, Gary Dourdan, Q'orianka Kilcher, Ed Begley Jr, Arielle, and Peggy Oki.
Kings of Chaos made its live debut in Australia April 20 at the Stone Music Festival. The band toured South and Central America last year under the name “Rock N’ Roll Allstars.” Kings of Chaos will embark on a new South American tour at the end of November.
