Martin Turner Ex Wishbone Ash: Live Dates Volume...

Mark your calendars for an evening of nostalgia on Saturday, 9th March 2024.

Classic rock tunes will come alive when ex-Wishbone Ash artist, Martin Turner, takes centre stage at the Colchester Arts Centre, Church St, Colchester.

Audiences will also witness some highlights from the 1973 "Live Dates" album.

Formed by Martin Turner and Steve Upton in 1969, Wishbone Ash spun melodious and texture-rich music that left an indelible imprint on rock music. Their innovative harmony-guitar signature sound played a significant role in churning out some of rock music's best-loved works. The band's classics that truly captured their sound include "Wishbone Ash," "Argus," "Pilgrimage," "Wishbone Four," "There's the Rub," "New England", and "Live Dates".

Martin Turner, as a lead vocalist, bassist, and a vital creative entity, played a pivotal role in Wishbone Ash's success. Even now, their music continues to enthral audiences globally.

On this tour, Turner will showcase the band's cherished works with his current lineup, including guitarists Danny Willson and Misha Nikolic and drummer Sonny Flint. Attendees can expect unforgettable renditions of classics such as "Living Proof", "FUBB", "The Way of the World", "Lorelei", and "Persephone".

Both legendary albums, "Live Dates" and "Live Dates Volume II", remain as some of the most loved double live albums in the rock era. This tour will undoubtedly be a nostalgic delight and a must-attend event for all Wishbone Ash fans.
