In celebration of the upcoming album, JOHN 5 and The Creatures will kick off the second leg of his North American Invasion Tour on February 22, 2019 in Las Vegas, NV. The tour will feature support from blues-rock guitarist Jared James NicholsJOHN 5 says, “Get ready for the Invasion tour! I will be playing some new songs from my new record, Invasion, a brand new medley, and much more. I’m really excited to have Jared James Nichols out with us. This tour is something you’re not going to want to miss!”

Jared James Nichols adds, “As a young budding guitarist, I grew up with a Guitar World cut out picture of JOHN 5 on my bedroom wall. He was always one of my ‘Guitar heroes’. He is the total package… insane technique, amazing musicality, with a style and look all of his own. Needless to say, when I got the call for this tour, my jaw dropped. I’m absolutely honored to warm up the stage for him every night across America and Canada. I’m getting my chops ready to tear it up!”

“Now more than halfway through the show John 5 takes one of only two short breaks to address the crowd; “Thank everyone for coming out, it looks like we have some repeat offenders, some Creatures who are traveling to see us at several shows – which we love”. He goes on “I do this because I love playing guitar, really no other reason, I just love playing for you” The next song is from our upcoming album due out in January, it’s called “Zoinks” followed by the “Nut Jam” and “Behind the Nut Love”.”

[REVIEW] John 5 and The Creatures deliver a “kick-ass great show” at The Forge in Joilet, IL

John 5 and The Creatures Famous Monsters Tour 2018

On November 1, John 5 and The Creatures took their #FamousMonstersTour show, with Hellzapoppin’ Circus Revue and Wednesday 13, to Illinois. They played a show at The Forge in Joilet.

On hand to watch the show was Go Venue Magazine and they have written a review of the evening.

“Going through riff after riff the energy of the crowd continued to increase song after song. In unison, the fans start lurching back-and-forth and thrashing together. The energy of this place increases and the smile on John 5‘s face, even underneath all that stage make up, grows exponentially. I have got to say this guy really enjoys what he does and brings an energy to any space he occupies. It is simply enthralling to experience.”
