Mike Ness Beefs Up U.S. Tour

Perhaps in an attempt to ensure a running start to this summer's 30th anniversary Woodstock concert, Mike Ness has extended his current U.S. tour.

The Social Distortion frontman has beefed up his tour itinerary and will now stay on the road through early July in support of his solo effort, "Cheating at Solitare."

Ness will then head to Rome, New York for this year's take on Woodstock, which is slated for July 23-25. There Ness joins a bill that includes Korn, Jewel, DMX, Bush, Rage Against The Machine, Metallica, and a host of others (see "Everclear, Godsmack, Lit, More Headed To Woodstock").
