After an extremely successful first leg of the Rock of Ages tour with DEF LEPPARD and POISON, the reigning queen of metal LITA FORD, will be returning to the road tomorrow to kick off the second leg of the Rock of Ages tour. This leg kicks off in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida and runs through September 14th in Concord, CA. Lita will also be playing select headline dates during this leg of the tour. A complete list of all dates can be found below.

Lita is out on the road supporting her new album, Living Like A Runaway, which was released this June via Steamhammer/SPV. The album is available in four configurations: a double LP, limited edition CD, standard CD and digital download.

Lita cannot wait to get back on stage and to play more new material from Living Like A Runaway: "The first leg of the tour went by too quickly... I guess I was having too much fun. I have really enjoyed seeing the fans shows singing along to the new songs from Living Like A Runaway, that is a real turn on for me. And it doesn't hurt that I have one of the hottest and best bands today; Mitch Perry, Marty O'Brien and Scot Coogan. To the people in North America, here we come to rock your summer!!!"
