With the sweat still fresh on his bass guitar after the most successful run of sold-out dates yet for The Dead Daisies, Marco Mendoza will return to the UK for an eight date tour stretching from Aberdeen to Southampton.

The multi-talented musician who has played with a list of some of the biggest names in rock music including Thin Lizzy, Whitesnake,Ted Nugent and Neal Schon of Journey to name a few, brings his eclectic show back to these shores this coming February.

With a background that bridges the gap between contemporary music in rock and pop, along with jazz, fusion and soul, Marco has a tonal quality to his voice, not unlike some of the greatest jazz and blues singers of the past that can easily mesmerise a crowd.

Some new material will be offered up on the tour along with some of the greatest hits Marco has played and beyond, and if its anything like The Dead Daisies current tour, tickets will go very quickly.

Tour dates are:

7th February: Rebellion, Manchester
8th February: Bannermans, Edinburgh
9th February: Tunnels, Aberdeen
10th February: Hard Rock, Glasgow
11th February: Think Tank, Newcastle
12th February: Snooty Fox Club, Wakefield
13th February: Camden Underworld, London
14th February: The Talking Heads, Southampton

MONSTERS OF ROCK IN FULL FLIGHT SURE TO BECOME FUTURE COLLECTOR'S ITEM

monsters of rock

Monsters Of Rock In Full Flight is strictly limited to 300 worldwide and is available from 30th November but those ordering before 31st October will have their name published within a dedicated page in the book.

It's a deluxe 128 page hardback book in a metal flight case with a narrative by Jerry Bloom.

When promoter Paul Loasby put on the first Monsters Of Rock Festival in 1980 he could probably never have imagined it would become an annual event that would endure for so many years.

Featuring bands from the UK, Germany, Canada and USA, Loasby chose to stage the event at the Donington race circuit in the middle of England and it would prove to be a defining moment for many of the bands on the bill.

Not least for headliners Rainbow as it was the their last ever show to feature drum legend Cozy Powell. As it would happen it turned out to be the last for vocalist Graham Bonnet as well. For many of the other bands on the bill such as Scorpions, Judas Priest and Saxon, they were all on the ascendancy and would soon go on to even greater success.

Now in celebration of this first ever Monsters Of Rock Festival comes this hardback book full of glorious photos of the bands that took to the stage for that inaugural event including back stage shots. Most of these shots have not been published before which add to the uniqueness of this deluxe 128-page book which is packaged in its own flight case.

Also included are stories surrounding the event with tales and recollections from those who were there, including artists and fans alike. Each book will be signed by the author. The 300 will sell fast and definitely go on to become collector's items so order yours now right here to avoid disappointment.
