‘Mark Tremonti’ More Footage From The Road


A new six-and-a-half-minute video clip featuring more behind-the-scenes footage from Alter Bridge and Creed guitarist Mark Tremonti‘s current solo tour can be seen below.

Watch the band set up as they get ready to close out the Midwest leg of their fall tour at the intimate Bottom Lounge in Chicago. You are going to have to mind the volume, however, as the combination of the concert, the howl of Chicago’s Green Line El passing overhead, and the cheers of the massive Chicago crowds will surely do a number on your hearing.

As the night progresses after soundcheck, watch Tremonti head into his dressing room backstage with shredding esquire Michael Angelo Batio for a free guitar masterclass. MAB even grabs hold of one of Mark‘s PRSguitars to shred on as the two go through some massive speed picking exercises. Watching two guitar leviathans playing through a pair of small [but mighty] sounding Roland Micro Cube amps is quite the sight as well!

Then grab a spot in the pit as Fret12 brings you some great live footage of crowd favorite Decay. There may even be a small surprise in the video that is indeed quite “beautiful.”

Van Halen bassist Wolfgang Van Halen made his first two appearances as part of Tremonti‘s solo band earlier in the month at shows in Rhode Island and New York City. This marks the first time Wolfgang has played with anyone outside of his father Eddie, his uncle Alex and singer David Lee Roth.

Van Halen is replacing Tremonti‘s bandmate from Creed and Alter BridgeBrian Marshall, who is sitting out the Tremonti trek for undisclosed personal reasons. The other members of Tremonti‘s touring band include Eric Friedman on guitar and Garrett Whitlock on drums.

Tremonti is on the road behind his debut solo album, All I Was, which came out this past July.
