TOUCHLINE ARE DELIGHTED TO BE PART OF THE
AUTUMN 2017 "BEAUTY OF CHAOS" TOUR
PLEASE BOOK EARLY TO AVOID DISAPPOINTMENT...
We are pleased to announce that Martin Turner’s “The Beauty of Chaos” Autumn 2017 tour will feature the addition of a complete performance of Wishbone Ash’s seminal 1972 album “ARGUS” to the band’s performance.
“Argus” was voted “Album of the Year” in “Melody Maker” and “NME” polls and achieved a #2 UK chart position. It remains one of the most enduring works of the classic rock era.
Wishbone Ash was formed by West Country musicians Martin Turner and Steve Upton, who arrived in London in 1969 to embark on their musical journey. Intent on creating a musical sound that was rich
in texture and melody, Martin Turner envisaged the band’s innovative harmony-guitar hallmark and guitarists Ted Turner and Andy Powell were recruited via a now legendary Melody Maker advert. The
partnership of the original line-up of Wishbone Ash forged a unique musical identity that would produce some of rock music's best loved works and influence numerous successful bands and result in
millions of album sales and concert attendances. Wishbone Ash would become one of the most enduring and best loved British rock acts and its name synonymous with high quality guitar-driven melodic
Over four decades later, the enduring music of the classic marks of Wishbone Ash continues to delight audiences worldwide through both live performances and a rich legacy of recorded work that continues to be enjoyed by fans old and new. Classic album releases such as Argus, Pilgrimage, There’s the Rub, New England and Live Dates defined the Wishbone Ash sound and have touched the hearts of several generations of music fans. As lead vocalist and key creative force, founding original member Martin Turner was central to the critical and commercial success of Wishbone Ash’s most revered albums, with his passionate vocal delivery, songwriting ability, keen melodic sense and production values being key ingredients in the definitive Wishbone Ash sound.
Martin Turner continues to perform the band’s best loved works with his current line-up, which features guitarists Danny Willson and Misha Nikolic, and drummer Tim Brown.
2015 saw Martin Turner and his band moving forwards with new original studio material for the critically acclaimed and award-winning Written in the Stars album (What’s On magazine ‘Album of the Year’ 2015), which was followed by a busy period of touring during which a live 2CD/DVD The Beauty of Chaos - Live at the Citadel was recorded in St. Helens for release in Spring 2017.
The Beauty of Chaos - Live Dates 2017 tour will feature classic album tracks and stage favourites from the extensive Wishbone Ash repertoire, as well as new music that remains true to the original Wishbone Ash blueprint.
