McKagan’s first solo headline run in five years, Lighthouse Tour ‘24 celebrates last year’s release of his critically acclaimed third solo album, “Lighthouse”, available everywhere now. Hailed by Paste as “an emotional, personal and spiritual reckoning…(McKagan’s) most important rock project yet,” the album sees Duff McKagan baring more of his artistic spirit than ever before, fusing acoustic elements with hard-edged rock ‘n’ roll to land at the sweet spot between soul-searching reflection and pure energy. “Lighthouse “was met by critical applause from such international outlets as Rolling Stone, Kerrang!Revolver, and American Songwriter for such singles as “Lighthouse, I Saw God On 10Th Street, And Longfeather, the latter hailed by Revolver as “folky, elegiac” and joined by an official music video streaming now at YouTube. McKagan later performed “Longfeather “with an exclusive appearance on ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live!, streaming HERE
“Lighthouse “is available now in a wide range of formats including streaming, download, CD, cassette, and LP. A number of deluxe versions and bundles featuring official Certificates of Authenticity signed by McKagan are also available. “Lighthouse  “– as well as an exclusive line of LIGHTHOUSE merch – is available now at www.duffonline.com.
In addition, an expanded digital edition of “Lighthouse ” is available now at all DSPs and streaming services. The deluxe release includes eight additional tracks along with three exclusive live performance videos filmed last December at Easy Street Records in McKagan’s hometown of Seattle, WA. Highlights include an stripped-down acoustic rendition of “Lighthouse “standout, I JUST DON’T KNOW, transformed from its powerful original version into a soaring, reflective ballad which showcases the vulnerability of the lyrics and McKagan’s vocal performance. “Lighthouse (Expanded Edition) ” also features “This Is The Song,“” It Can’t Come Too Soon“, And “Pass You By” (all originally found on McKagan’s “This Is The Song Ep,” released last May to honor Mental Health Awareness Month), along with the previously unheard “C’mon Boys “(featuring outlaw country badass Jesse Dayton) and live versions of “I Saw God On 10Th Street,” “Just Another Shakedown,” and “Lightfeather.” All three live tracks are accompanied by official videos from the intimate hometown event. In addition, a complete video capturing McKagan’s live in-store performance can be viewed in its entirety via YouTube HERE.
In addition, this spring saw the release of McKagan’s new double-live album, “Tenderness: Live In Los Angeles,” available everywhere now for streaming and download, with limited 2CD and 2LP editions available via www.duffonline.com. Recorded June 13, 2019 at Los Angeles’ historic El Rey Theatre just days following the May 2019 release of his acclaimed second solo album, “Tenderness, Tenderness: Live In Los Angeles ” sees McKagan taking an intimate journey through his own canon of songs along with a few deeply personal cover versions, backed by 3x GRAMMY® Award-winning “Tenderness ” producer Shooter Jennings and his band. Newly mixed in the legendary Sunset Sound Studio 3 (a.k.a. Snake Mountain) by Jennings using the famed custom API console on which Prince recorded and mixed “Purple Rain“, highlights include an electrifying rendition of “River Of Deceit,” originally performed by McKagan’s close friends, Seattle supergroup Mad Season – comprised of guitarist Mike McCready (Pearl Jam), drummer Barrett Martin (Screaming Trees), and the late Layne Staley (Alice in Chains) and bassist John Baker Saunders (The Walkabouts), along with powerful takes on The Clash’s classic “Clampdown ” and such Guns N’ Roses fan favorites as “You Ain’t The First, Dust N’ Bones, and Dead Horse.
For more than 40 years, Duff McKagan has been an unstoppable creative force, spanning a multitude of bands, tours, collaborations, and writings. Starting at just 15, McKagan has been a part of such diverse and influential bands as The Vains (1979), The Fastbacks (1980), The Living (1982), The Fartz (1990), 10 Minute Warning (1993), and Loaded (1998), along, of course, with his historic role as founding member of both Guns N’ Roses and Velvet Revolver.
