cats in space

Cats In Space are to support Thunder on their UK tour in March 2017. It's a great match as Thunder vocalist Danny Bowes sang on their version of the classic Slade song 'How Does It Feel' and sported the rising London rockers' t-shirt at Ramblin' Man last year.

Danny Said: "I was hooked the first time I heard the Cats In Space album. I thought they were both mental and brave to make such an overtly 70s influenced album, and I loved it."

If you haven't heard Cats In Space yet, you really are missing out as the band take the heady power pop rock sounds of the seventies and make them sound fresh and new.

The band are currently in the studio, working on the follow-up to their successful debut 'Too Many Gods', with a provisional 2017 release date in place for the new album. Meanwhile, tracks like 'Mr Heartache' and 'Only In Vegas' are still gaining plaudits.

Greg Hart of Cats In Space told us: "The opportunity to tour with Thunder is a dream ticket for us. We're going to rock you all to the moon and back. It will be purrrrfect!"

Dates are:

17th March: Manchester Apollo
18th March: Sheffield City Hall
19th March: Newcastle City Hall
21st March: Leicester De Montfort Hall
22nd March: Glasgow Clyde Auditorium
24th March: Cardiff Motorpoint Arena
25th March: Southampton Guildhall
26th March: Ipswich Regent
28th March: London Eventim Apollo

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.
