  BREAKING NEWS: LITA FORD TO PLAY LONDON HEADLINE GIG IN MARCH
10th February 2017

Lita Ford has lined up a headline concert at London's Islington Academy on March 12th, two days after headlining the HRH/AOR Festival in Wales on March 10th.

Lita's last album, 'Time Capsule', a very special collection of previously unheard recordings, was released in April 2016 on Steamhammer/SPV, to coincide with the publication of her soul baring autobiography, 'Living Like A Runaway: Lita Ford, A Memoir', documenting her journey from all girl band The Runaways to major solo successes.



MetalTalk reviewed 'Time Capsule' in March 2016, stating: "This is an album that shows that Ford's return to former glories continues..."

A British born rocker who grew up on the streets of LA, Lita Ford was a founding member of the Runaways, one of the first girl groups who unexpectedly broke down barriers in the punk era as well as the male-dominated world of rock music, causing a stir with their six rebellious releases.

Following the demise of the Runaways, Lita concentrated on her own career, subsequently creating such memorable hits as 'Close Your Eyes Forever', 'What Do You Know About Love', 'Shot Of Poison', 'Larger Than Life' and 'Kiss Me Deadly'.









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.
