We are delighted to announce that Martin Turner and his band – Danny Willson, Tim Brown and Misha Nikolic – will be filming and recording a live DVD/CD during the upcoming “Written in the Stars” Spring Tour for release later in 2016. Filming and recording will take place at St Helens Citadel on Friday 26 February 2016, in association with the Classic Rock Society.
For this occasion, the band will be playing a specially extended set that will open with the award-winning “Written in the Stars” album being performed in its entirety, followed by a selection of Wishbone Ash classics spanning the Martin Turner years. “We’ve been playing selected tracks from “Written in the Stars” for some time now, even prior to the album’s release, “ says Martin Turner. “We have been truly overwhelmed by the positive reaction to the new material since the album’s release and were already planning to play a more varied selection on the upcoming dates. However, while trying out all songs from the album during rehearsals, it soon became apparent not only how well all the songs lend themselves to live performance but also how the full album works as a “piece” – in much the same way as “Argus” did. Wouldn’t it be a shame then if we did not capture “Written in the Stars – Live” for posterity?”
We urge fans to purchase tickets for this show IN ADVANCE – the band’s last appearance at this great venue was packed and the addition of “Written in the Stars” live together with an extended set and the presence of a camera crew will no doubt create additional demand as well as a fantastic atmosphere on the night. Join us in St. Helens and be a part of what promises to be a great experience for all fans of Martin Turner and classic Wishbone Ash music.
