Due to a couple of recent D Generation newsworthy events, I've decided it's time for a

April 2nd 2011
It's official, D Generation are finally back to play some headline shows! So far two shows have been announced, the first at Irving Plaza, NYC on Saturday 17 September and the second at the Troubadour LA on Saturday 24 September. Tickets for these shows are already on sale at:
Irving Plaza, NYC - www.livenation.com
Troubadour, LA - www.ticketfly.com
There will also be some shows in Spain but as yet no dates have been officially announced, although it is expected that they will be playing Madrid September 3... This may change!
This news has also seen the launch of an official D Generation website at www.dgeneration.us, the first official D Generation website in over 10 years, where you can find news on where to buy your tickets... Obviously I will be posting any new information here when I hear it! Wahoo, D Generation Across the Nation!
At last, for the first time since 1999 you can now buy official D Generation TShirts! There are three designs each costing $16 plus P+P and they are available from www.shopshogun.com.
They are printed on quality Gildan Ringspun TShirts for a softer feel and come in five different sizes. The quality of the design and printing looks identical to my original TShirt.
As a rough guide to anyone from the UK considering buying one of these TShirts, I bought a Medium which would fit a 40" chest perfectly. Often American TShirts sizes run bigger than UK but these Gildan Ringspun TShirts are very similar to the UK sizes.
