tony martin

Former Black Sabbath singer Tony Martin will be playing a one off UK performance at The Asylum Birmingham on July 27th. This will only be Tony's and and only UK show this year. Support will come from local hero Blaze Bailey.

Its been a long time and a long struggle to keep the voice and songs of Tony Martin in the music arena, but now for the first time in his home town as a solo artist, Tony Martin is performing many of the songs he was responsible for creating. Songs of course from the Sabbath era of his career, through 'Phenomena', and solo albums 'Back Where I Belong' and 'Scream' to the Rondinelli album and laterly 'The Cage' which was released earlier this year.

Tony's band is a collection of his closest and trusted friends – Geoff Nicholls on keyboards, Tony's colleague from Black Sabbath. Always able to create a melodic atmosphere for Tony's writing, sometimes being the KEY to making the song work! Geoff has been in Tony's band for many years and appeared on his 'Scream' album as co-writer.

Danny Needham, currently working with Venom, rejoins Tony for this unique and landmark concert. Danny is the anchor and guardian of the shows pace and tempo. Highly regarded as a player, Danny is a hard act to follow.

Magnus Rosen is a new addition to Tony's band. With great stage presence and ability as a bass player, Magnus has gained huge respect for his honesty and is highly regarded by Tony as one of the true gentlemen of the rock world. He is known mostly for his work with Hammerfall.

The remaining member, Dario Mollo is a long time friend and collaborator on the 'Cage' project. Dario's guitar playing is exceptional. He is naturally left handed but plays a right handed guitar. Not only a guitar player though, he runs his own studio in Italy and is a very attentive producer.

This collection of friends and consummate artists promises to provide a unique and emotional trip through the songs of Tony Martin's career.

This is a one time chance to see the show. Don't miss it!

Have a listen to the full 'Headless Cross' album. This is probably Black Sabbath's most under-rated album of all time...
