  1. I was never a fan of white lion and hated their version of radar love , so I won’t be going. Mike seems like a great guy in the interviews I’ve heard , so I hope the gigs go well ~

  2. I didn’t mind White Lion. They had some cool stuff like Lady of the Vally from the Pride record. I would only be interested if their original guitarist was involved. Plus, looks like it is just an acoustic set which I’m not a fan of.

  3. Yeah, White Lion was a fun band with some fun songs (I disagree with Robert, their version of Radar Love is awesome!), but this will be a hard no. Acoustic versions without Vito Bratta? No thanks!

    BTW, “Wait” is in my top 10 80’s Metal songs of all time!

    1. White Lion was the house band at L’Amour in Brooklyn. The owners of the club managed them, so they played there, A LOT. I saw them, God knows, how many times, before they became “big.”

      My two favorite Lion songs are Hungry and For All The Fallen Men. Sweet Little Loving is a decent song, as well.

  4. I would love to see Mike get a hard rock band back together, maybe called Mike Tramps White Lion with some other original members but who knows what the legal stuff is with the band. White Lion did have a killer release called Mane Attraction. Vito Bratta is on fire on that release as well as the band. I would say it is their best release. Mike had a band called Freak of Nature that put out 2 great, great cds!! I have both of them and if you can find them, you’re lucky. This non electric stuff is not for me.
    Pride, Big Game and Mane Attractions are a must have music if you like hard rock from the late 80s or early 90s.

  5. This is not shocking news. He’s been doing these “Songs of White Lion” shows for decades now. I seen him do his solo versions and their not great because he won’t hire a full band. Its basically an acoustic show and if there is any electric its sadly lacking since Vito isn’t involved. However I do hope he does well because from what I hear he’s a really nice guy and loves his fans.
