Dokken & BulletBoys
October 14, 2023 | RCU Theatre
Dokken exploded out of the boiling hard rock/heavy metal scene in Los Angeles in the early ‘80s with songs like “Breaking the Chains,” “Alone Again,” and “Just Got Lucky,” which are still regarded among the genre’s finest. Dokken has shared the stage with AC/DC, Metallica, Aerosmith, Judas Priest, Van Halen, Kiss, Scorpions, as well as Bon Jovi, just to name a few. The band hit stadium status in 1988, playing in front of over a million fans in just five weeks. It seemed Dokken was on the verge of superstardom. But like so many other bands that have come before and after them, Dokken broke up his group in 1989.
Dokken has survived and kept their loyal fans in a time when people's tastes change as fast as Britney Spears' wardrobe, they have been embraced by a whole new generation of rock fans. They recently played at ‘The Bang Your Head Festival’ in Germany as well as ‘Rambling Man’ in England receiving rave reviews. The group is now currently back in the US wrapping up their 2017 world tour! The group plans on a new record release in 2018.
