Keith St John will be joined by Jack Frost for the Rain Is Burning acoustic duo UK tour which begins tomorrow evening at Bannermans in Edinburgh. This is the first time since 2019 that we have seen St John playing in the UK.
“I greatly miss the UK with all its majestic depth and soulful artistic history,” St John said. “I, like many Americans, feel the UK birthed the backbone for all of rock’s makers, and I feel something deeper when connecting with the fans there that I don’t feel in too many other spots on this planet.”
Keith co-founded Burning Rain with Doug Aldrich in 1998 and has played with Montrose, Lynch Mob, LA Guns, Quiet Riot, and currently with Kingdom Come.
His 12-year stint with Montrose led to Sammy Hagar describing him as “the only other singer that can properly deliver these songs in a big arena.”
“Not only were we invited to play the Woodstock 40th Anniversary Concert held in Golden Gate Park in San Francisco with over 70,000 in attendance, which was mind-blowing, but the next day Neal Schon who was hangin’ out side stage for our set, [and] called me up to do an up and coming tour with him,” St John says.
On this tour, which kicks off tomorrow night at Bannermans in Edinburgh, he promises to deliver songs from Burning Rain’s four studio albums, as well as hits from Montrose, Kingdom Come, Lynch Mob, and a selection of deep cuts that hard rock enthusiasts hold dear.
Keith St John’s extensive touring resume also includes Nazareth, The Neal Schon Band, and Sweet.
