Wishbone Ash, The Flowerpot, Derby - 7th November 2017

It's always astonishing to find a band like Wishbone Ash pounding out their beautiful 'proggy' blues in the back of a Derby pub. And on a dark and stormy autumn night there's probably no cosier place than The Flowerpot's concert room when it's absolutely rammed wall-to-wall, front-to-back with an appreciative and responsive audience. Ash were straight in with the intricate & synchronised guitars of Andy Powell and new boy Mark Abrahams (a seamless fit) before blazing through another classic setlist. A rapturous ovation was rewarded with an encore that finished with the wonderfully anthemic Blowin' Free, enthusiastically chanted (1,2,3,4 ..POW!) by a very engaged crowd. Is it a health hazard to feel your ribs pounding to the combined force of Joe Crabtree's bass drum & Bob Skeat's Rickenbacker? Will my ears ring for days after? Who cares. Wishbone Ash only disappoint in one way: they can't play EVERYTHING. What they do play is always a satisfying slice through an eclectic musical archive. The mystery is why we don't see more of the musical heritage that bands like Wishbone Ash embody. The band has been banging it out for as long as BBC favourites like David Gilmour, Led Zep and Deep Purple but see very little airtime for their effort and true talent. They're an incredibly hard working and fantastic live British band. They deserve far better coverage.

"what a gig!!"

Wishbone Ash, Whitby Pavilion, Whitby - 4th November 2017

This was a great gig - no bones about it (pun intended).
I love Wishbone Ash gigs as It's nice to see a group of artists who can actually play their chosen instruments performing on stage while having fun doing it.
What can be said about the evening:
The set list was a good mix of older and new material from 'Argus' up to the 'Blue Horizons' albums
A nice addition to the set was two acoustic performances as part of the show.
Andy Powell provided a fine example of his usual crisp vocals while wielding his trademark flying V guitar.
The new recruit to the band - Mark Abrahams who has recently replaced Muddy Manninen acquitted himself nicely with a stunning guitar performance during 'Phoenix' and seems to have fitted in well with the rest of the band despite only being with them for such a short time.
The Drumming of Joe Crabtree was as usual flawless (even if you don't get to see much of him hiding behind the cymbals)
But for me the highlight of the show was the rarely played 'F.U.B.B' making a return to the stage with the driving rhythm of the bass Intro laid down by Bob Skeat.
Thanks Guys for a great evening.

"An amazing concert"

Wishbone Ash, Whitby Pavilion, Whitby - 4th November 2017

Loved the venue, first visit to Whitby Pavilion but it was nice, drink prices were reasonable and the theatre was very intimate.

I think this was the best performance of Wishbone Ash that I’ve seen. The set list was a perfect mix of new and old and the acoustic songs were something I haven’t seen before and changed the pace of the concert before ramping up to the classics! As ever the guitar playing was stunning I never cease to be amazed by their talents and the drummer was also brilliant.

Andy kept the audience involved and the whole evening felt relaxed and informal.

Must also mention Steve Hill the support, a complete one man band who was also very good and personable. A thoroughly enjoyable experience.

Wishbone Ash, Whitby Pavilion, Whitby - 4th November 2017

First time at Whitby Pavilion and loved it...
Wishbone Ash were awesome and certainly didn't disappoint, with tracks from early classics right up to the newly released album...
Support act, Canadian one man band Steve Hill needs to be seen to see how unique and fantastic he is.... Can't believe how long it's taken for him to finally be recognised in this country.... Maybe that's thanks to Wishbone Ash too....
Overall a fantastic night...
Trouble free ticket ordering by Gigantic and all well recommended

Prog rockers Wishbone Ash have always been on the edge of invention. Pioneering not only their own sound, but the future sound of rock.

The band members currently include guitarists Andy Powell and Muddy Manninen who also share vocals. Drummer Joe Crabtree and bassist Bob who also provides vocals.

They take over O2 Academy2 Sheffield on Friday 17th of March, 2017.

They have just announced concerts later in the year. See them play at O2 Academy Islington in London on Thursday 19th October and The Flowerpot in Derby on Tuesday 7th of November, 2017.

Wishbone Ash tickets can be yours by booking through Gigantic. But act fast as they will sell quickly.

Highly innovative, the band were amongst the first to use two lead guitars and were the driving force behind the harmony twin lead guitar format prompting Powell and former member Ted Turner to be voted as two of the Ten Most Important Guitarists In Rock History by Traffic Magazine and were ranked in the Top 20 Guitarists Of All Time by Rolling Stone magazine.

The band were bound a shared love of progressive rock, folk and classical. They formed late in October 1969 and due to their sheer talent would be the support band for Deep Purple the following year. 1970 also marked the release of their eponymously titled debut album which promptly shot to #3 in the charts.

The album caught the attention of the press and the adoration of audiences around the world. And after the release of further albums Pilgrimage, Argus and Wishbone Four began to play major international headline shows.

To date, Wishbone Ash have released twenty-five studio albums and continue to record new material.

Both concert and festival tickets are always limited so be sure to book early with Gigantic to avoid disappointment.
