Dokken is currently on a Summer tour and performed to packed venues at the Chameleon Club in Lancaster, PA and Penn's Peak in Jim Thorpe, PA.

Although the cast of characters has changed, Dokken is still selling out venues across the country and in 2009 a force to be reckoned with. The Dokken line-up featured Don Dokken on vocals, Jon Levin on guitar, Mick Brown on drums, and bassist Greg Smith, who is filling in for Dokken bassist Barry Sparks who is on the UFO tour this summer.

Dokken hit the stage at 10:30 P.M. and performed a 90-minute set of all of their hits. Opening with "Breaking The Chains", the crowd was ready to rock to the hard driving catchy grooves that Dokken are known to unleash.

Do you remember when metal clubs were 100 degrees, and packed with metal fans hungry for a night out on the town filled with hard driving metal? Well, that was the atmosphere here tonight at the Chameleon Club in Lancaster, PA. The club featured a 2 tier wooden decor nightclub with a balcony filled with metal fans.

Dokken ripped through all the hits including,"The Hunter", "Just Got Lucky", and "Tooth And Nail". Don Dokken sounded strong on vocals, and captivated the audience with his melodic vocals and stories. Guitarist Jon Levin shredded out the Dokken hits with perfection. Wild Mick Brown held down the backbone of the band with his hard hitting groove along side bassist Greg Smith.

The band played an extended version of "Too High To Fly" from the Dysfunctional album. Everybody jammed and showcased their talent. Highlight of the set had to be "It's Not Love", and new song "This Fire" which has the signature catchy Dokken groove written all over it.

The band ended the set with "In My Dreams", as the packed house screamed for more. One thing was for sure, in this day of ever changing musical trends, Dokken has survived the odds. Proving that good songs, and outstanding singing really do outlast the test of time. Be sure to catch Dokken on tour this Summer.
