The touring show consists of Sagal backed by the Forest Rangers, the band that collaborates to create the music for the wildly popular FX series, created by Sagal's husband Kurt Sutter. Band leader and Sons of Anarchy music supervisor, Bob Thiele, Jr is excited for the diversion from filming the show, especially since music is a big part of the series and because of each band member's musical background.
The band, in addition to Sagal on vocals, consists of Brian Macleod (drums), Davey Faragher (bass), Jeff Young (keys), Billy Harvey (guitar), Gia Ciambotti (backing vocals) and Thiele on guitar. The live show will not only feature several of the SOA songs, that Sagal sings, but also some of her favorites, including a few songs from a forthcoming album she plans to release later this year. Here's what Katey Sagal said in a statement.
In addition to the musical aspect of the touring show, it will also include a moderated panel conversation with Sagal and cast members Theo Rossi (Juice) and Ryan Hurst (Opie). With a weekly viewership of over four million and a Facebook following of nearly 5.5 Million, Sons of Anarchy is FX's most popular series of all-time, rivaling the ratings of many prime time network shows. Filming for Season 6 begins in mid-May, but Sagal adds that the band will do more touring if this run is successful.
Bob Thiele, Jr. thinks the tour will be successful, in large part because of the hand-in-hand nature of the music and the TV show. He also believes that because of how perfectly Sagal transitions from acting to singing.
Katey Sagal also revealed she is excited to perform brand new songs.
