Martin Turner, ex Wishbone Ash, The Beauty of Chaos Tour.
Featuring full 45th anniversary performance of Wishbone Ash’s classic ARGUS album….plus more
We are pleased to announce that Martin Turner’s “The Beauty of Chaos” Spring 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 rock music.
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. Martin Turner looks back fondly on his touring activities since his return to the live stage: “I have had a wonderful time over the past few years re-discovering the wider Wishbone Ash catalogue and taking this to the people. When I go to see an artist live, I want to hear the songs as I remember them from the records and I believe that is true of the Wishbone Ash audience too.” 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 features 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.
