Hard rockers Mr. Big have confirmed a UK tour in November 2017. The US legends will play 6 dates visiting Nottingham, Newcastle, London, Manchester, Glasgow and Wolverhampton, with support on the tour confirmed as The Answer and Faster Pussycat.
Almost three years since their previous record …The Stories We Could Tell, the band will release their ninth studio album Defying Gravity on 21st July on Frontiers Music SRL. It’s 25 years since Mr. Big topped the charts with their hit song “To Be With You” – an event which has inspired a new song, “1992”, on their latest release.
Mr. Big are Eric Martin (vocals), Paul Gilbert (guitar), Billy Sheehan (bass) and Pat Torpey (drums). The original four-piece have remained active and popular over three decades – they broke up in 2002, but after fans’ requests they reunited in 2009 and haven’t looked back since.
Tickets are on sale 10am on Friday 30 June via the usual outlets. As a reminder, Glasgow fans can get tickets for face value (no fees) if they pay in cash at the ABC’s box office. Planet Rock have an exclusive ticket pre-sale facility available from 28th June at 10am.
