‘LATE TO THE PARTY’ - USA 50TH ANNIVERSARY TOUR
Rock / Classic Rock
This is the third time that Wishbone Ash’s East Coast/Midwest U.S. tour leg has been scheduled. Needless to say, the Band and the Fans are overjoyed to get back together and jam! The third time's a charm, as the saying goes.
“Thankfully, before Covid-19 shut live music down around the world, we did manage to celebrate our 50th anniversary by touring Europe and other territories in support of our new album, ‘Coat of Arms,’” says founding member Andy Powell (guitar, lead vocals). “The USA Midwest and East Coast was not quite so lucky, missing out on the party. So we’ll be resuming the celebration under the banner ‘Late to the Party’ for our friends and fans who missed out due to the pandemic.”
For this special concert, Wishbone Ash will perform their landmark album, “Argus,” in its entirety. The band's third release, “Argus” is interwoven with medieval and spiritual imagery, featuring such classics as “The King Will Come,” “Throw Down the Sword” and “Blowin' Free” – all three are still staples of Wishbone Ash’s regular concerts. It is on “Argus” that guitarists Andy Powell and Ted Turner perfected their melodic twin-lead style, which later influenced such bands as Thin Lizzy and Iron Maiden.
Inspired equally by British folk traditions, American jazz and R&B, the group has played to public and critical acclaim. Celebrating 50 continuous years of touring - up until the pandemic - Wishbone Ash is the quintessential road band, having gained worldwide recognition, based firmly on a regime of relentless touring and recording which has fed and grown their rabid following.
The constant of Wishbone Ash has been Andy Powell, voted into the Ten Most Important Guitarists in Rock History (Traffic magazine, 1989) and the Top 20 Guitarists Of All Time (Rolling Stone). Through the years, he has been featured in notable publications, including Guitar Player, Vintage Guitar and Guitarist, and has appeared at the Guitar Institute in Los Angeles. In 2015, he released his musical memoir, “Eyes Wide Open: True Tales of a Wishbone Ash Warrior” (co-written with Colin Harper, Jawbone Press) which offers an inside track of five decades of life on the road and in the studio.
With “Coat of Arms,” their 25th studio album release (and their 100th unique release through their history), Wishbone Ash continues to prove they are not a band to rest in the past. Wishbone's third album, “Argus” (1972), named The Best British Album of the Year by Melody Maker and considered to be one of the all-time classic rock albums, was released 50 years ago in 1972. Other outstanding vintage Ash includes “Pilgrimage” (1971), “There’s the Rub” (1974) and “New England” (1976), along their best-selling album, “Live Dates,” which sold more than 1 million copies. More recently, “The Power of Eternity” (2007), “Elegant Stealth” (2011) and “Blue Horizon” (2014) have each garnered enthusiastic praise from the pundits and fans alike. The latest musical project is “Wishbone Ash: The Vintage Years” (Snapper Music), a 32-CD deluxe box set spanning the years 1969 to 1991, featuring a coffee table book, posters, floppy discs, rare photos and more.
