chiswick invasion

The Chiswick Invasion will once again take place in 2017 and an all-star cast of performers will play the concert in aid of Nordoff Robbins, the charity that transforms lives through music therapy.

The event will take place at Chiswick School, Burlington Lane, London W4 3UN on Friday 3rd March 2017 and appearing will be Yngwie Malmsteen, Rainbow and Michael Schenker's Temple Of Rock vocalist Doogie White, Romeo's Daughter vocalist Leigh Matty, FM keys wizzard Jem Davis and bass player Merv Goldsworthy, Sisters Of Mercy guitarist Ben Christo, Bruce Dickinson bass player Chris Dale and drummers Travis Williams and Frank Noon with more names possibly to be announced.

You can check out the latest updates and call the Box Office from the Call button on the Facebook page right here.

Shot Through The Heart are joining the party, bringing raucous riffs, heavenly harmonies, searing solos and ballistic beats to recreate some favourite 80s hard rock, glam and AOR classics.

The first Chiswick Invasion in March 2016 proved to be a roaring success, amassing a sizeable amount of money for Nordoff Robbins and the 2017 event looks like it's going to top last year's.

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.
