Jake E. Lee’s Red Dragon Cartel has announced the initial dates of their 2014 U.S. tour – The band made their live debut on Thursday, December 12th to a capacity crowd at The Whisky A Go Go in Hollywood.

Watch a performance The Ultimate Sin (San Diego 12/15/13) below.
Much better show in S.D. Think they’ll have it nailed down in ‘014. Sharon, have your secretary ebay half your shoe collection and pay Jake what he’s due. Give him proper writing credit going forward. Then be a hero and make it right w/ Bill, Phil, Bob, Lee and a couple dozen more. Afterwards, get on w/ planning the greatest Ozzfest ever!!
More Ozzy stuff. Duplicate other bands stuff to prove you can still do it. A suit versus Ozzy and CBS would cost a fortune….me thinks he’d pass. CBS has in-house lawyers up the gazoo….Yentikoff fired missles at anything directed at his company when he was the chief.
Please return to Los Angeles to repay the disappointed hundreds that waited 20 years to see the return of Jake E Lee. The show was a mess and RDC owes Hollywood a return visit to kick some ass!!! Trust me, dozens have echoed the same request.
Man, I have nothing but love and respect for Jake. RDC is kickin some ass, I am so glad to see Jake wearing it out again. Jake is why I picked up the fiddle when I was 9. welcome back brother!!! I hope you will be hitting Atlanta,Ga on this tour. God Bless Ya, JPriest
Just saw RDC live in Houston last night and I was right in front of Jake the entire show.
The guy is just awesome to watch jam on guitar. The rest of the band sounded fine to me and were very appreciative of the crowd and even did a meet and greet with autographs afterward.
Here’s to you Jake and the rest of the band. Thanks for the great show!!!!
