Join us for a unique opportunity to be part of the studio audience at this intimate conversation with Richie Sambora and Orianthi. The pair has joined forces for a new, genre-spanning musical project under the name RSO that sees these two platinum-selling singer-songwriters and world-class guitarists teaming up as a duo. They recently released a five-track EP called Rise, and there will be more music coming soon. The evening features a long-form interview, short performance, and opportunity for audience questions.

Richie Sambora and Orianthi will be interviewed by author and journalist Brad Tolinski. The event is part of the BackStory Events online series and will be live streamed by Guitar World magazine.

About Richie Sambora and Orianthi (RSO):

American rock icon, Songwriters Hall of Famer, and founding member of multi-platinum, Grammy-winning band Bon Jovi, Sambora (who has sold over 130 million albums worldwide and has co-written over 20 Top 40 hits and 11 Top 10 hits) and Australian guitar virtuoso Orianthi (who has shared stages with the likes of Michael Jackson, Santana, Prince, ZZ Top and was the first female member of Alice Cooper’s band) have both written chart-busting singles, toured the globe extensively, collaborated with superstar artists, and released three solo albums each. Their new collaboration, RSO, sees Sambora and Orianthi teaming up as a duo for a genre-spanning musical project encompassing elements of rock, blues, pop, R&B and country. They have plenty of stadium-ready melodies, uplifting lyrics, and top-notch musicianship, and the Rise EP is just the first taste of a lot more music to come from RSO. The harmonious blend of Sambora and Orianthi’s voices and guitars are front and center, putting a fresh spin on male-female duets. RSO displays the combustible chemistry that Sambora and Orianthi have both onstage and off.
