Royal Oak Music Theatre Concert Announcement: Robin Trower

Experience a Euphoric Evening of Blues,
“Pyschedelia” and Sheer Power!
Live at the Royal Oak Music Theatre Saturday, March 29th!

Royal Oak- AEG Live presents Robin Trower, a timeless blues legend at the Royal Oak Music Theatre on March 29, 2008. Tickets will go on sale Friday, December 7th at 5pm.

Robin Trower is an English rock guitarist whose symphonic rock sound generates an inventive style that is all his own. In 1962, Trower’s first professional group was the rhythm and blues band, The Paramounts, which included drummer BJ Wilson, pianist Gary Brooker and bassist Chris Copping (later replaced by Diz Derrick). In 1967, after The Paramounts’ breakup, Trower joined Procul Harem, a progressive rock band best known for their 1967 hit single “A Whiter Shade of Pale.” The group maintained a devoted following throughout their career, with their music principally noted for its classical influences and blues and pop embrace. Trower's first venture alone, Jude, was a Led Zeppelin-influenced four-piece featuring ex-Jethro Tull drummer Clive Bunker, bassist James Dewar of Stone the Crows, and pub-rocker Frankie Miller. However, Jude never managed to record an album. Instead, Trower played a few solo gigs before signing with Chrysalis in 1973, which was shortly followed by the release of his début “Twice Removed from Yesterday.” In 1974 Trower released his magnum opus “Bridge of Sighs,” which was recently re-mastered and re-released this year.

This tour promises to be musical treat for the senses. You won’t want to miss this icon of blues rock as he brings us a night of musical intrigue and haunting melodies.
