GRAHAM BONNET Australian & NZ Tour Announced For April 2016

Artist: 
Release Year: 
2015
Categories: 
 
The most powerful voice in rock is coming to Australia and New Zealand next April. [No, I didn't wrote that folks...]
 
English vocalist Graham Bonnet is synonymous with classic hard rock and heavy metal.
Best known for fronting Rainbow, Michael Schenker Group and Alcatrazz, Graham’s voice is known and cherished by many.
 
Having last visited our shores as part of the Countdown Rock N Roll Arena extravaganza he is ready to return with
his all-star band featuring Mark Zonder from the legendary Fates Warning.
 
Graham scored several top 10 hits in Australia in the 1970's with his solo releases including the Dylan classic
It’s All Over Now, Baby Blue, and Warm Ride which peaked at number 1! He then joined Ritchie Blackmore’s
Rainbow, which was formed by Blackmore after he left Deep Purple. The Rainbow album Down To Earth (1979)
was a top 10 worldwide smash hit with platinum singles Since You Been Gone and All Night Long.
 
Following Rainbow, Graham released his second solo album featuring the hit single Night Games, and then joined
ex-Scorpion legend Michael Schenker in his band MSG for the album Assault Attack.
In the early to mid 80’s Graham formed his own band, Alcatrazz that featured an unknown Yngwie Malmsteen on
guitar. The band quickly became a supergroup in Japan, and Yngwie soon left only to be replaced by another up
and comer, Steve Vai, which propelled Vai onto David Lee Roth and future legendary status...
Ritchie Blackmore, Michael Schenker, Yngwie Malmsteen, Steve Vai…it seems Graham with his powerhouse vocals is the perfect match for these Guitar Gods!!
 
Since then Graham has kept busy in many bands, such as Impellitteri, The Party Boys, Anthem, Forcefield with
Cozy Powell, Mick Moody and Don Airey, featured as a guest on countless albums and has also recently completed
a sold out tour with a symphony orchestra throughout Eastern Europe with himself, Dan McCafferty from Nazareth
and John Lawton from Uriah Heep.
 
He has also just finished a Japanese tour to sell out crowds with his solo band supporting Michael Schenker's
Temple Of Rock, featuring Herman Rarebell and Francis Bucholz from Scorpions and Doogie White. Graham has
gotten up each night to perform songs from the MSG album he recorded Assault Attack.
Do Not Miss This Night Of Hard Rock Glory!
 
Graham will be playing all his hits from Rainbow, Michael Schenker Group, Alcatrazz and many many more.
A limited amount of VIP meet and greet tickets will be available,
these will include a private acoustic performance, something to truly remember.
