Brother Cane to Reunite for 2022 + 2023 Tour Dates
You can add another reunion to the 2022 slate as '90s rock favorites Brother Cane will be hitting the stage later this year. The band, fronted by singer-guitarist Damon Johnson, have confirmed their return with plans not only for 2022 but also 2023.
Johnson will be joined in this reunion iteration of the band by original Brother Cane bassist Glenn Maxey as well as his longtime collaborator Buck Johnson on keyboards and drummer Jarred Pope.
While dates are currently in the process of being booked, the band's first confirmed show will take place at the Northern Lights Theater in Milwaukee on April 22. Johnson also revealed to AL.com that the group will add shows for their hometown of Birmingham, Alabama and Nashville, where he currently resides, for later this year.
Johnson and Maxey were founding members of the band back in 1991, with the group going on to release three studios albums - 1993's self-titled debut, 1995's Seeds and 1998's Wishpool - before their eventual split. Over the course of their run, they scored several Top 10 Mainstream Rock singles including the chart-topping "And Fools Shine On" and "I Lie in the Bed I Make" as well as "Got No Shame" and "That Don't Satisfy Me."
In the years since their split, Johnson has gone on to perform with Thin Lizzy, Black Star Riders, as part of Alice Cooper's band and just last year he filled in for Gary Rossington in Lynyrd Skynyrd. It was that last tour that convinced him to reform Brother Cane, with the musician revealing he was surprised how many Skynyrd fans recalled the band and what their songs meant to them. After questions of a reunion continued to pop up, Johnson moved forward with his plan to reactivate the group.
While 2022 will bring select dates, the band is planning a full-fledged tour for 2023 coinciding with the 30th anniversary of their debut album. “I’m just over the moon about this!” says, Johnson. “Brother Cane fans are some of the most passionate that I’ve encountered in all of my travels.”
He adds, “I love all of these songs and the guys and I cannot wait to get back out there and share them with the amazing fans and friends of Brother Cane. Let's Go!”
