The Damned have recruited Queens Of The Stone Age’s Troy Van Leeuwen to play guitar during their shows next month. He will be filling in for Captain Sensible.
Van Leeuwen commented:
“Ladies and Gentlemen… How Do?
I am beyond excited and honored to be playing several shows with The Damned in the Merry Merry Month of May.
Due to ongoing travel restrictions, the ever-charismatic Captain Sensible will not be doing these US dates. So when asked, I was more than happy to offer my services and step in as a temporary replacement.
May 11 – House Of Blues Las Vegas NV (w/ Kid Congo Powers)
May 14 – Cruel World Fest Brookside @ The Rose Bowl Pasadena CA
May 15 – Cruel World Fest Brookside @ The Rose Bowl Pasadena CA
May 17 – Masonic Temple San Francisco CA (w/ Blondie)
May 18 – Humphreys Concerts By The Bay San Diego CA (w/ Blondie)”
The Damned added:
“As you now know, Due to ongoing travel restrictions, The Captain will not be doing the US dates in May. Troy Van Leeuwen from Queens Of The Stone Age has offered his services and will be stepping in as a temporary replacement. A massive thank you to Troy !!
Captain Sensible will be playing shows in June in the UK & Germany. We’re also hoping that restrictions will ease in the USA, so as he can join the band on the August dates with Blondie and will of course be playing with the Original line-up with on their final dates this Autumn.”
