In celebration of the 30th Anniversary of their platinum-certified debut album, hard rockers KINGDOM COME have reunited and will be touring the U.S. this fall. The band’s original lineup is largely intact (drummer James Kottak, guitarists Danny Stag and Rick Steier, and bassist Johnny B. Frank), with longtime MONTROSE vocalist Keith St. John stepping in for original frontman Lenny Wolf (who declined to take part but has given the project his blessing). They will be performing Kingdom Come in its entirety, along with selections from their 1989 follow-up In Your Face.

Produced by the legendary BOB ROCK (METALLICA, MOTLEY CRUE, BON JOVI), Kingdom Come became the first debut album in history to ship gold, based largely on the massive success of the lead single, “Get It On.” The song’s heavy-duty groove and almost-immediate familiarity made it the most requested song on AOR radio for six weeks, and its accompanying video went into heavy rotation on MTV. The ballad “What Love Can Be” followed suit, and the band took to the road as part of the now-infamous 1988 Monsters of Rock tour with VAN HALEN, SCORPIONS, DOKKEN, and Metallica. Kingdom Come eventually reached number 12 on the Billboard sales chart, and has sold in excess of two million copies worldwide.

The band will be criss-crossing America throughout September and October, including an October 3 performance at the venerated Whisky a Go-Go in West Hollywood, California, a co-headlining gig with the also-newly-activated AUTOGRAPH and special guests KILLER DWARFS on October 13 in Versailles, Ohio, and an October 20 show in Poughkeepsie, New York, in support of ZEBRA.
