Martin Turner’s Wishbone Ash reveal tour dates
On the road: Martin Turner's Wishbone Ash
Martin Turner’s Wishbone Ash have revealed their touring schedule for the first half of 2013.
They’ll play 25 shows in the UK beginning on February 28 and ending on June 29, including a set at the inaugural HRH Prog Festival, sponsored by Classic Rock’s sister title Prog Magazine, in April.
Last September MTWA played a garden-party show to a group of invited guests, who were surprised to see former members Ted Turner, Laurie Wisefield and Steve Upton take the stage.
The band delivered a previously-unheard track called Mystify Me during the show. Turner told Classic Rock at the time: “I’m not closed off to the idea of making a new album – I’m sure we can still write songs and make them sound good.”
Along with the UK shows, MTWA will also play four shows in Germany and Belgium between April 17 and 21.
