Yes, thanx for noting this.
Also, the official website front page has been modified with a clock counting down days hours etc possibly to the announcement of the tour I guess...it says 89 days (3rd of January 2016??)

Another date just popped up:

2 Sept 2016
Uncasville, CT Wolf Den

Interesting that the Paradise Artists website has removed the short info on Survivor where the new co-singer was mentioned for the first and only time...

No surprise, seeing as we're talking about a band led by Frankie Sullivan. My guess is that Survivor cancel more shows than just about any band.

In 2008 there was another concert in Vegas that was cancelled just a few days in advance. Don't remember if they had actually ever played LV in the last 7 years.

Not that I care for Sullivivor anymore but they could've put their boots to rest already and stop shaming the band's name.

All that Survivor are to Frankie Sullivan anymore is a way to make a little bit of money every now and then. He has no pride in the band anymore.

I used to think that Jimi was wrong in touring under the Survivor name with his own band. But the truth is that he ran things far more professionally than Frankie Sullivan has since about 1997.

Now that the first round of dates that were scheduled have been cancelled and passed on the calendar, the band is confirming the first few dates through both facebook account and the official website (revamped but only in part).
So far the dates are:

Fri 03/11/16 Sioux City, IA Anthem At Hard Rock Hotel & Casino
Sat 06/25/16 Brainerd, MN "Lakes Jam" Brainerd International Raceway (with .38 Special and Styx among others)
Fri 08/12/16 Biloxi, MS Hard Rock Live

So the first official scheduled date is fast approaching (also confirmed by Cameron on Twitter). My thought are:
- this one in Iowa may be a warm-up gig. The band hasn't toured for 18 months now, and there's a new singer to bring in the picture;
- Obviously without Jimi the market attractiveness of the band is much lower (I'm afraid I'm being optimistic about it..). If Frankie really believes in this new guy Cameron, and wants to get this thing going and to resonate, there should be an event or a gig when the band is fully rehearsed and oiled up, that will serve the purpose. I'm honestly surprised nothing in Chicago has been set yet. If it was me, I would have presented my new band with an open event in the Chicago area, best if falling on some anniversary for the band.
