DW Drums Sponsors First-Ever, Live-On-Stage Dual Performance
from Technical Titans
Superstar drummers, Virgil Donati (Alan Holdsworth/Planet X) and Thomas Lang(Paul Gilbert/stOrk) will headline the “DW TV Show” tour. Sponsored by DW Drums, the 7-city tour of Australia, Japan and the Philippines will also include an appearance at the Sydney Drum & Percussion Show. The DW TV Show marks the first-ever time these two technical titans have performed on stage together.
“Thomas and I have been friends for a long time and it has always been a goal of ours to get out and do something together. I’m excited to finally make this happen,” said Donati.
Both Donati and Lang will perform using DW Collector’s Series Drumsets which will be available for sale via the local retail sponsor after each tour stop. Additional sponsors include: Audix, Hansenfutz, Meinl, Remo, Sabian, Urbann Boards, Vater, and Vic Firth.
“The phrase ‘once-in-a-lifetime’ gets thrown around a bit, but I feel like this truly is a once-in-a-lifetime chance to work with Virgil and I hope the audiences feel the same way about getting to see us perform together live on one stage,” said Lang.
