New Tour Shirts! 

Attention to all those who support DRN’s music! 2019 is the 30th Anniversary of our album ‘SLAM’ which the single ‘Rainbow Child’ came from and was produced by Nile Rodgers in 1989 in NYC. We will be touring in the UK and Germany this December, as well as playing our hometown of Portland, Oregon on New Year’s Eve to celebrate this release and are now offering this Limited Edition ‘SLAM 30th ANNIVERSARY TOUR T-SHIRT’.  

We have created our own DRN original brand with this design as we are really happy how it turned out! For those interested these shirts are available worldwide here.  

[https://danreednetwork.tmstor.es/cart/product.php?id=35651](https://danreednetwork.tmstor.es/cart/product.php?id=35651&fbclid=IwAR3EmbTd-3mzt1bTDjinIN8vT6NneY3OrwwtF2b-ar8u8bI6im7BOBh0oQk) 

Using the highest quality material we could find this Tshirt has DRN labels and tags as well as the Slam Tour Artwork. This is a one off piece of Dan Reed Network Merch.  

Orders will be shipped early November, weeks before the tour begins. Also we will be donating £1 from each T-shirt to an environmental charity. We haven't decided on which one yet as we are investigating which organization uses funds for the cause best. We also welcome any suggestions to worthy groups you are aware of or have worked with in the comments section below!  

The fit will be similar to a Gildan softstyle T-shirt and even better quality so we hope you will enjoy this item as much as we did designing it with a nod to our past for it is the foundation to our musical future.  

We can not thank you enough for being behind the music all these many years!

Thank you all and we will shall return in 2018! Until then may you all have a heartwarming Christmas with your loved ones and a memorable ringing in of the New Year ❤  

I leave you all for the Holidays with a few photos from the London show by the talented Anders Gustafsson, and stay tuned for 2018 date announcements next week after Christmas! - Dan Reed

Glasgow  

Arrived in Glasgow this morning. We have played here before over 25 years ago. Looking forward to what should be a great show tonight. 

SHOW TIME

I had an extra good time playing tonight. I felt inspired from watching Extreme the night before. Nuno is a great guitarist! There were a lot of people that had seen us the last time we were here and played in kilts!! The night was cold but the love in the house was warm! The set was short but everyone loved it and we made a few new fans as well! Thank you Glasgow 

Newcastle  

What a great beginning to the tour with EXTREME last evening! The band and crew have been a joy to meet up with and work beside... And Extreme rocked our world big time... Ridiculously tight and full of passion for two hours straight! Thank you to everyone in the audience who welcomed us so warmly and all the positive comments online this day. We are beyond honored by this experience so far 🙂 See you tonight and come early... DRN hits the stage 30 minutes after doors! Thank you our hard working crew for a perfect first day of this run.   - Dan Reed
