LOS ANGELES, Aug. 23 /PRNewswire/ -- It is by no means clear who will be fronting America's most talked about new band, Supernova, but today the band's three founding members, Motley Crue drummer Tommy Lee, former Metallica bassist Jason Newsted and former Guns N' Roses guitarist Gilby Clarke announced they will be inaugurating their band with a 27-city concert tour across North America. Kicking off at the Hard Rock in Miami, Florida on January 16th and culminating at the Long Beach Arena in Long Beach, California on February 27th, Supernova's very first gig will be on New Year's Eve at The Joint in Las Vegas. Tickets go on sale nationally for Supernova's first concert tour on Wednesday, August 30th. The tour is being produced by Live Nation (NYSE: LYV).

A special presale for ROCKSTAR: SUPERNOVA viewers which was announced last night on the hit CBS television show is active now and runs through Tuesday, August 29th at 10:00pm. More information can be found on www.cbs.com/primetime/rock_star2 or by going to www.livenation.com.

Over the course of the summer, the highly successful CBS television show ROCKSTAR: SUPERNOVA searched among 15 contestants to find the most dynamic leader for a band whose players are among the most respected musicians in the world. As music fans across the country voted, Gilby, Tommy and Jason helped guide the process to eliminate performers every week to arrive at the final selection. The lead singer for Supernova will be chosen in a finale episode scheduled to air on September 13th.

Supernova will be touring in support of their highly anticipated Epic Records debut. The yet-to-be-titled album will be produced by Butch Walker (Avril Lavigne, Bowling For Soup, Pink) and released on November 21st. Fans can pre-order the record through the band's official site, http://www.intothesupernova.com.
