L.A. Cobra European, UK, and Scandinavia tour
Following the success of their third studio album, Shotgun Slinger, and the overwhelming response from the European market, L.A. Cobra will embark on a tour covering countries in Europe, the UK, and Scandinavia.
The tour will start early in March 2019 (dates, countries, and venues to be announced soon) and will see the band playing roughly 12 shows (exact dates TBC).
Sales from this vinyl project will help fund this tour.
Fundraising for the Running Wild tour
Planning an international tour takes a lot of time, teamwork, energy, and planning. There are many logistical issues to consider and costs involved. Knowing how excited our European fans are to see the band live, we have decided to take on this adventure and bring South African sleaze rock to the Northern Hemisphere.
L.A. Cobra fans from across the world made it possible for the band to release the Shotgun Slinger album via our previous fundraising campaign.
This time we are offering some unique rewards to our fans who would like to contribute to the funding our our Vinyl project.
We ask you to spread the word and to encourage all your friends to contribute to this campaign. We need as many people as possible to support this campaign in order to make this tour a success.
Who are we
Formed in November 2005, L.A. Cobra is the Only Sleaze/Glam/Hair Metal band On the African Continent.
They are the “Sleaze Rocking Hair Metal Stars” from Pretoria – flying the 80’s Glam Rock Flag from the handlebars of their Harleys whilst making a name for themselves internationally and locally. Like the well-known song Of Queen, “Tie your mother down, lock your daddy out of doors”, L.A. Cobra has been let loose to cause a rebellion among the youth with their revival of the 80’s glam era.
Largely influenced by 80’s rock bands like Motley Crue, Poison, Guns & Roses, Kiss, WASP and Skid Row, L.A. COBRA is all about girls, Harleys, big hair and a good time, bringing back those memorable guitar solo’s and “balls to the wall” hard rock shows we’re all starved for with a modern twist from their songwriting as we know them, these guys are the real deal, and live Rock and Roll.
Don Cobra – Vocals and Guitar
Slade Sleaze – Guitar and backing vocals
Ewil – Bass and backing vocals
Callie ‘The Animal’ – Drums
