Blabbermouth is reporting this morning that former Warrant singer Jani Lane will step in as the replacement for Jack Russell on the remaining live dates of Great White’s 25th anniversary tour. Earlier this month Jack Russell underwent emergency surgery to repair a perforated bowl, and a six to eight week recovery is expected. XYZ vocalist Terry Ilous filled in for Russell earlier this month, but it had been unclear if he would be able to continue.
This will set up an interesting situation on November 12, when Great White and Warrant are scheduled to play together at the Medina Entertainment Center in Medina, Minnesota. Warrant’s website does not list this tour date, but you can view the confirmed pairing of these two bands at the Medina Entertainment Center website.
Great White will perform Saturday, September 25 in Farmington at Rocktoberfest, and then will be back with Warrant on Friday, November 12 at the Medina Entertainment Center in Medina.
