Dokken have announced they will reform their classic line-up for six shows.

Don Dokken, George Lynch, Jeff Pilson and “Wild” Mick Brown will return to the stage together in Japan for the first time in 21 years this October for a stint called “Unleashed in the East.”

Since making their original announcement, Dokken have confirmed they will be playing one U.S. show. The classic lineup will perform a warm-up slot at Badlands Pawn Guns Gold and Rock ‘n’ Roll in Sioux Falls, South Dakota on September 30.

The quartet will launch the Japan tour on October 5 in Osaka, and then head to Fukuoka, Tokyo (for the Loud Park Festival) before continuing on to Hiroshima, Aichi and finally, back to Tokyo for the final show on October 12.

“I am very excited to come back to Japan and play with the members of Dokken that I spent so much time with,” Don Dokken says. “Being that it’s only six shows, we are going to make as spectacular as possible.”

Tickets as well as VIP package experiences will be on sale beginning August 27.
