After a successful run of tour dates overseas, shredder rock-pop metallers and fan favorites MR. BIG, vocalist Eric Martin, guitarist Paul Gilbert, bassist Billy Sheehan, and drummer Pat Torpey, will be hitting the road in the United States this summer in support of the band's new album, What If... The tour opens in San Diego, June 30th, (see full itinerary below) and marks the first time in 13 years the original lineup has toured North America.

Produced by Kevin Shirley (LED ZEPPELIN, IRON MAIDEN), What If... is now available as a special edition CD + DVD in digipak, regular CD, vinyl and digital download and in a limited edition luxury box including the CD, DVD, LP and exclusive memorabilia. The DVD includes videos of 'Undertow' and 'All the Way Up' plus a documentary "making of" the album including interviews and exclusive behind-the-scenes footage of the four band members.

Formed in 1988, Mr. Big forged its place in hard rock history by combining trademark virtuosic musicianship with stellar vocal harmonies. The quartet produced numerous hit songs that ranged across a wide array of rock genres, including the ubiquitous 'To Be With You', which was a Billboard Hot 100 #1 single in 15 countries for weeks, propelling the band to huge international success and record sales in the multi-millions.

In other Mr. Big news, the next single from the new album, 'American Beauty', will ship to radio in July in support of the tour.
