L.A. Guns (featuring Phil Lewis, Steve Riley, Stacey Blades and Scotty Griffin) are pleased to announce the 20th anniversary celebration of their platinum record 'Cocked & Loaded'. The band will be playing the entire record from beginning to end at selected venues starting in Tokyo, Japan on January 12, 2009, with US dates to follow. Lead vocalist, Phil Lewis, says "It's a great way for our younger fans to get a taste of what the sex, booze and tattoos sound track of the late eighties was all about. We'll be playing songs that haven't been heard live in over a decade. I expect our older fans that were around when the record was released in the summer of '89 will be delighted to dust off the spandex and eyeliner." The 65 minute set will start off with the signature opening song 'Letting Go' and then faithfully follow the track list of 'Cocked & Loaded.' L.A. Guns got their start on Los Angeles' Sunset Strip in 1986 and signed with Polygram Records in 1987, recording their first album that summer. This first album, titled "L.A. Guns", went on to sell 750,000 copies and earned the band its first gold album award. Tours with AC/DC, Iron Maiden, and Def Leppard followed. A compilation of the videos made from this first album also earned the band a gold video award. L.A. Guns went into the studio to record their second album, "Cocked and Loaded", in the spring of 1989. It was a hit right away with the release of "Rip and Tear" as the first single and video. "Never Enough" and "The Ballad of Jayne" followed, pushing album sales over 1,000,000 and earning the band its first platinum record award. The video compilation from this album earned the band its second gold video award. A successful world tour followed
