We are absolutely delighted to announce that in the winter of 2017, two of the UK’s pioneering AOR bands, Lionheart and Airrace will hit the road together for a full UK co-headline tour.
These shows will mark the first time Lionheart have toured the UK since their triumphant return to the stage in 2016. It also marks Airrace’s first tour since their return from hiatus. Both bands will be playing sets featuring cuts from their classic albums ‘Hot Tonight’ and Shaft Of Light as well as promising a few new numbers which will not disappoint.
Ex-Iron Maiden Guitarist Dennis Stratton of Lionheart had this to say about the forthcoming tour…
“At the moment it still feels like a dream. I keep thinking is this really happening after all these years. After being with Iron Maiden for 2 years and recording the 1st album and working on killers we formed Lionheart. After Lionheart broke up I played with Praying Mantis for 15 years and I never thought we would get the chance to re-live our past. I’ve seen Laurie many times in Italy as I’ve been playing there for the past 12 years doing Maiden conventions, but touring together again after the Def Leppard tour in the 80s is just so exciting. Bring it on!”
Laurie Mansworth, axe man of Airrace tells us…
“I am delighted that Airrace are touring again and these show are going to be a blast.I toured with Dennis Rocky and Steve back in the 80s and have very fond memories of our time on the road together, they are also some of the UK’s finest musicians. It’s a great double bill and I really hope rock fans up and down the UK will come and share a fun night of classic songs with us.”
With ex and current members of Iron Maiden, UFO, MSG, Shy, The Treatment, and More on the same stage it’s going to be one hell of a show.
Don’t miss your chance to revisit the golden era of 80’s rock with two of the UK’s greatest AOR bands.
