GUS G. Kicks Off Worldwide Tour and Announces 'I Am the Fire' Expanded Edition

In support of his recently released solo debut "I Am The Fire", Ozzy Osboune / Firewind guitarist Gus G has now embarked on a run of acoustic shows together with Mats Levén, the main vocalist on the album.

In mid-October, Gus G. will then head to North America for a string of dates with Lynam before joining up with the Metal All Stars tour (http://www.metalallstars.com) in South America and Europe for touring throughout the end of the year. See below for all upcoming dates.

 To coincide with this worldwide tour, a special expanded edition of I Am The Fire will be released in Europe on November 3rd (digitally on November 4th in North America). This limited CD + DVD digipak will feature 4 bonus tracks and a 62-minute bonus DVD (including the album's 4 official video clips so far, plus 3 live tracks, 6 guitar tutorials, as well as an EPK and track-by-track commentary).

GUS G. handles all guitar, bass and keyboards on I Am The Fire and is joined by a roster of friends and guests that helped bring his vision to fruition: drummers Jeff Friedl (A Perfect Circle, Puscifer, Devo) and Daniel Erlandsson (Arch Enemy), bassists David Ellefson (Megadeth), Billy Sheehan (Mr. Big, Winery Dogs) and Marty O'Brien (Tommy Lee, We Are Fallen), and vocalists Mats Leven (Candlemass, ex-Yngwie Malmsteen/Therion), Blake Allison (Devour the Day), Michael Starr (Steel Panther), Alexia Rodriguez (Eyes Set to Kill), Tom S. Englund (Evergrey), Jacob Bunton (Adler) and Jeff Scott Soto (Trans-Siberian Ochestra, ex-Journey). T

'I Am the Fire' showcases a well-balanced mix of active rock, classic hard rock, traditional metal and guitar-driven instrumentals, taking listeners on a diverse journey through GUS G.'s soulful playing.
