DUFF MCKAGAN’S LOADED — the band led by VELVET REVOLVER/ex-GUNS N’ ROSES bassist Duff McKagan— has scheduled the following dates in the U.K. and Ireland in November:

Nov. 06 – O2 Academy – Leicester, UK
Nov. 08 – Relentless Garage – London, UK
DUFF MCKAGAN’S LOADED recently went into production for its upcoming feature film “The Taking”. Helmed by Seattle filmmaker and documentarian Jamie Burton Chamberlin, this rock ‘n’ roll flick is a series of “vignettes” that explores the lyrical content of LOADED‘s recently released studio album of the same title.
In a November 2010 interview with West Seattle Herald, Chamberlin said that the film “will be a contemporary version of, say, [THE BEATLES‘] ‘Hard Day’s Night’ meets [LED ZEPPELIN‘s] ‘The Song Remains the Same’, with aspects of documentary, music video, and live performance, all interconnected by an underlying motivation. The album will serve as the soundtrack.” He added, “Everything will be shot in Seattle and the Northwest. We hope to use locations in West Seattle and other familiar settings to create these vignettes that develop organically within them.”
