 Robin Trower announces first live shows in the UK in 6 Years

Tickets available from 

New album ‘Joyful Sky’ ft. Sari Schorr is out now via Provogue / Mascot Label Group

You can order the album HERE

You can stream it via Spotify HERE

It has been six years since the iconic guitarist Robin Trower has graced the UK stage. He will return in May for three special shows; Tuesday 28 May at the Islington Assembly, London, then Thursday 30 May at the Glasshouse in Gateshead and Friday 31 May at the Picturedrome in Holmfirth. He will be playing songs from across his formidable back catalogue; from Bridge of Sighs all the way up to Joyful Sky. Tickets are available HERE.

Trower released his latest album, the US #1 Billboard Blues album, Joyful Sky, featuring powerhouse New York singer Sari Schorr, in October last year on Provogue / Mascot  Label Group. From the album they released the smouldering single “Burn”,  the propulsive and Bond-like “I’ll Be Moving On” and the upbeat groove-rocker “The Distance”. You can order and stream the album HERE.

For six decades, Robin Trower’s career has been an act of quiet rebellion. Rewind the reels of the British guitarist’s backstory and you’ll find an artist who has always rolled the dice rather than take the path of least resistance. In the early-’70s, Trower announced his fearless streak by leaving the security of Procol Harum for a gold-selling solo career whose ever-present Bridge Of Sighs - album filled the stadiums of North America. Since then, he’s flowed from his own projects to collaborations with everyone from Jack Bruce to the United State Of Mind supergroup alongside Maxi Priest and Livingstone Brown.  Fast-forward to 2024 and Trower’s new studio album, Joyful Sky, represents vindication for his latest flash of artistic instinct.

A literal lifetime since he first stepped onto the British blues circuit as a cub gunslinger, that fabled Trower power shows no sign of burning out. In fact, the iconic guitarist’s late-period acceleration is something to behold, sweeping up new fans alongside the hardcore who have followed his every move. “I think this record is more accessible than the stuff I’ve done over the last few years and I’ve got a feeling it’ll reach more people,” says Trower of Joyful Sky. “At my age, to still be doing it, and still turning out good stuff – you really appreciate what a blessing that is.”
