john wetton keith emrson

Eddie Jobson and Marc Bonilla are to perform tributes to John Wetton and Keith Emerson at London's Under The Bridge venue on April 22nd.

Under The Bridge is the music venue situated in Chelsea's football ground, Stamford Bridge, on Fulham Road in SW6.

The tribute will be an intimate evening of songs and storytelling from Jobson and Bonilla in a tribute to their dearly departed friends and collaborators Wetton and Emerson.

Eddie Jobson is known across the world as a pioneering keyboardist and violinist, a key member of Curved Air, Roxy Music in their 'Roxymania' days, Jethro Tull and Yes. He also recorded with King Crimson, members of Deep Purple and The Who and became an integral member of Frank Zappa's band.

Marc Bonilla is a guitarist whose association with Keith Emerson began in the mid 90s when he made up part of the Keith Emerson Band. Bonilla was often referred to as Emerson's secret weapon, enabling him to embrace his prog-rock past outside his association with those two bands where he first made a name for himself.

Bonilla and Jobson join forces to perform a night of classic prog-rock from outfits including UK, King Crimson, ELP and many more.

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.
