Blackgrass musician and celebrated guitarist John 5 has announced dates for a spring tour with his band John 5 and the Creatures, beginning on March 2 in Milwaukee, WI. The tour will continue throughout the month, ending on March 30 in Omaha, NE, with exclusive meet and greet packages available on certain dates via the John 5 website.
Kicking off the tour is John 5’s latest single, “Behind the Nut Love;” originally recorded in 2005 and featured on the Songs for Sanity album, this re-recording features Creatures band mates Ian Ross and Rodger Carter and will be appearing on the upcoming album Guitars, Tits, and Monsters; for the single and corresponding music video directed by Matt “The Lord” Zane, John 5 has teamed up with Fender Musical Instrument Products, featuring a new addition to John 5’s renowned Telecaster collection – a 1950 Broadcaster tuned to an open E major – acquired from Norman’s Rare Guitars in Tarzana, CA. According to the artist, “That was one of Norm’s prize possessions, and I finally got it off him. It’s an amazing guitar.”
