The 33-date tour will be coming to Chislehurst

Martin Turner, founder of the legendary Wishbone Ash, the rock act, has announced a 33-date The Beauty of Chaos 2017 UK tour, which will be coming to Chislehurst, Bromley.

It is 45 years since Argus, Wishbone Ash’s third album was released, and vocalist and bassist Martin Turner, was the main composer, lyricist and creative force behind this album.

Martin’s The Beauty of Chaos tour will also feature album tracks and stage favourites, as well as material from the recent Written in the Stars album.

Martin said: “My band – Danny, Tim and Misha – and I are looking forward to the upcoming tour. As always fans can expect a mix of songs from various albums – further exploration of the extensive Wishbone Ash catalogue and selected cuts from the more recent Written in the Stars album.

“This time around we will also be including full performance of Argus. I’m constantly being made aware how this album still resonates with people and holds a special place in their hearts, some 45 years after its release. This I believe is due to the strong melodic content of the music and the universal themes – everyone can relate to the lyrical references to time, space, war, etc.

“The album marked a creative peak of the original band, with inspired contributions from all. In 2017 I feel my band has a great empathy for the music and the ability to reproduce the album faithfully onstage in a way that is fresh and exciting.”

The concert will be at The Beaverwood Club on May 18.

Having a brand new kitchen is something that lots of people want but can only dream of. Sadly keeping up to date and making our living spaces as nice as they can be is a costly and incredibly stressful business. Even a fresh coat of paint makes all the difference but isn’t easy or quick.

Who wouldn’t love the chance to go on a shopping spree. Imagine being able to walk into a shop and choose whatever your heart desires without having to worry about how much it costs.
