Lee Aaron returns to the UK this month where she will bring her 'Fire And Gasoline' tour to London and Wolverhampton.

Fans can expect July's two UK shows to be jam packed with well-loved classic and contemporary anthems like 'Barely Holdin' On', 'Whatcha Do To My Body', 'Hands On', 'Metal Queen', 'Tom Boy' and 'Fire And Gasoline', as well Lee's soaring version of the Deep Purple classic 'Mistreated', taken from newly recorded 'Heavy Blues' album which is due for release later this year.

Lee told us:

"I am so excited about the direction of the new album. I grew up influenced by the blues, and the great blues-rock singers – Paul Rodgers, Robert Plant, David Coverdale and Ian Gillan... I wanted to get back to the basics: great songs with great vocal performances."

'Fire And Gasoline' was released in 2016 and met with high praise from fans and press alike. Here's the single, 'Tom Boy'.



Catch Lee Aaron live at the following UK venues:

July 16th: London, The Underworld
July 17th: Bilston, Wolverhampton, The Robin 2

Lee was a trail blazer in the women's rock movement of the 1980s. A fearless re-inventor, she has ventured into the world of blues and jazz ('Slick Chick', 'Beautiful Things') - and even modern opera. She's been nominated for ten Juno Awards, won the CMPA Songwriters Award, a Much Music Video Award and an Ampex Golden Reel Award.

Lee and her band are currently working on her next album, a fiery collection of blues-based rockers slated for release in the fall 2017.

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.
