Crikey! Just when you thought you'd missed out on Creed axe-man Mark Tremonti's last UK tour and support slots with Slash, he goes and confirms another for next year. So inspired was he at the reaction of European fans, he's heading back with full band in tow to amaze and astound all with selections from his canon, not least new album "All I Was".
Fans of his 'day-job' bands Creed and Alter Bridge will already be familiar with his intricate axe-work, so the prospect of Tremonti coming back to these isles for more headliners with his own band (which incidentally features Creed's bassist Brain Marshall) should be rather intriguing. Again. Billed as a 'speed-metal' album, "All I was" marked something of a departure from the clean structured heavy-rock of Creed. The reviews were encouraging and so were the US sales - it reached #29 on the Billboard Top 200, no mean feat for what is essentially a traditional metal rock and roll album. You never know - it could be in line for another Grammy. Until then though, it's time for more shows.
Tremonti's tremendous 2013 tour will begin in Wolverhampton on 14th February, followed by Edinburgh, Manchester and lastly Camden on the 18th. We will have tickets on sale from 9am on Friday 9th November, with prices starting from around £16.50.
