DOKKEN To Reunite With George Lynch!

Don Dokken  has confirmed that  DOKKEN  has received an offer to play with former guitarist  George Lynch  at a concert in September.

DOKKEN ‘s classic lineup reunited for a short Japanese tour in the fall of 2016. The trek marked the first time in 21 years the four musicians had hit the road together.

Since completing the reunion dates,  DOKKEN  has continued to perform with the group’s current lineup — featuring  Don , drummer  Mick Brown , guitarist  Jon Levin  and bassist  Chris McCarvill  — save for a handful of shows in late 2017 that saw guitarist  Ira Black  ( LIZZY BORDEN VICIOUS RUMORS ) fill in for  Levin . The group has scattered tour dates scheduled through the summer, including a performance at this year’s  Wacken Open Air  festival.

Asked by  SiriusXM ‘s  Eddie Trunk  about  George ‘s recent claim that there was “talk” about the classic lineup of  DOKKEN  playing “at least one big show” next year,  Don  said: “We have an offer on the table coming up in September.  Mick  and I talked about it yesterday; we haven’t made up our mind yet, ’cause we have to think about it.”

He continued: “I have to protect the franchise — of the [current band, featuring]  Mick Brown Don Dokken Jon Levin , [our guitarist of] over 20 years, [and]  Chris McCarvill  [who has] been in the band a long time. I have to protect the franchise, and [ George ‘s] got  LYNCH MOB . But, you know when these, we call ’em, ‘honeypot’ shows come up, and they say, ‘Would you mind if  George  played, and we’ll give you a crazy amount of money?’…

“We did the Japanese tour, but we now have maybe a gig coming up on September 7 in Minneapolis at a big casino festival — a huge festival — and I haven’t talked to  Jon  about it yet,”  Don  added. “But I have to keep my respect for  Jon Levin ; I don’t wanna step on  Jon Levin ‘s toes, ’cause he’s my brother, and he’s one of my best friends.

“So they made an offer,” he said. “And I said, ‘I’ll play with  George . We don’t mind playing with  George . But it’s gonna have to be  George  and  Jon  [playing together at the same time].’ … We’re  DOKKEN ,” referring to the lineup featuring  Don Mick Jon  and  Chris . “He can come on  our  stage. It’ll be an Internet,  Facebook YouTube  sensation, video-wise, ’cause he’s gonna do six to eight songs. And if you’re listening,  George , I’m not bagging on you, but he’d have to remember them.”
