Area bands to open for Brother Cane at Piere’s

Area support have been added to the Brother Cane show coming to Piere’s on Thursday, Aug. 18, at 8 p.m. 

Get yourself cleaned up after work, grab some grub, and arrive on time to take in Tankhead and ReGeneration X who will set the mood for the evening. 

As for ’90s favs Brother Cane, they have scored radio hits, toured with Van Halen, Aerosmith, and Robert Plant, and might very well be the biggest and baddest hard rock band to come out of Alabama. The band has performed at Piere’s in the past and even Memorial Coliseum when they opened for Lynyrd Skynyrd and Bad Company in 1998. 

This tour will feature original frontman Damon Johnson, original bassist Glenn Maxey, as well as Aerosmith touring musician Buck Johnson on keyboards and drummer Jared Pope from Johnson’s solo band.
