Joe Lynn Turner to play UK acoustic shows

Legendary vocalist Joe Lynn Turner returns to the UK in April for a run of intimate acoustic shows where he will draw material from across his thirty year career.

While Joe has most recently been heard on albums by Rated X, Brazen Abbott and Sunstorm, for most fans, he is best loved for his three album stint with Ritchie Blackmore’s Rainbow in the 80s, lending his talents to the classic ‘Difficult To Cure’ in 1981, before ‘Right Between The Eyes’ and the under-rated ‘Bent Out of Shape’.

Turner says: “It’s been quite some time since I have visited the UK and Northern Ireland to see all of my friends and fans. I’m really looking forward to having such an intimate situation with Q & A and an acoustic set of songs.”

“These shows will be very special indeed. See you all soon!”

The dates are as follows:

Apr 01: Edinburgh Bannerman’s Bar
Apr 03: Aberdeen The Moorings Bar
Apr 04: Belfast Voodoo
Apr 05: London The Borderline
Apr 07: Chester The Live Rooms
Apr 08: Sutton-In-Ashfield The Diamond
Apr 09: Evesham The Iron Road

In other Turner-related news, a 4CD Yngwie Malmsteen box set will be released in February containing – among other things – a remastered version of the 1988 classic ‘Odyssey’, an album rated highly among JLT fans.

Turner also features heavily on ‘A Light In The Black’, a six disc Rainbow anthology, released today.
