Richie Sambora and Oriathi have thrown together a quick Australian tour for September under the banner RSO and the setlist is impressive.
The Sambora and Orianthi RSO shows have been a mix of their solo works and a stash of Bon Jovi. The pair last toured Australia together on Soundwave in 2014.
“I’m ecstatic to be bringing this tour home to Australia”, said Orianthi. “Aussies really know how to rock out at concerts. It’s going to be an incredible experience.”
Adelaide’s Orianthi became Hollywood’s ‘go to’ guitarist after Michael Jackson recruited her for what would have been Michael Jackson’s This Is It tour. He died before it happened but the rehearsals were compiled for the ‘This Is It’ movie by Sandrine Orabona.
Orianthi has also worked with Alice Cooper, Santana, Steve Vai, Dave Stewart, Steven Tyler, Adam Lambert and Michael Bolton.
