About

Following the success of their 2023 tour, which featured Wishbone Ash’s 1973 Live
Dates double live album performed in its entirety, Martin Turner and his band
return to the concert stages in 2024 to perform its sequel, Live Dates Volume II.
Wishbone Ash was formed by West Country musicians Martin Turner and Steve
Upton, who arrived in London in 1969 to embark on their musical journey. Intent on
creating a musical sound that was rich in texture and melody, Martin Turner
envisaged the band’s innovative harmony-guitar hallmark and guitarists Ted Turner
and Andy Powell were recruited via a now legendary Melody Maker advert. The
partnership of the original line-up of Wishbone Ash forged a unique musical identity
that would produce some of rock music's best loved works and influencing
numerous successful bands, resulting in millions of album sales and concert
attendances. Wishbone Ash would become one of the most enduring British rock
acts - its name synonymous with high quality, guitar-driven melodic rock music.
Five decades later, the music of the classic line-ups of Wishbone Ash continues to
delight audiences worldwide through both live performances and a rich legacy of
recorded work that continues to be enjoyed by fans old and new. Classic album

releases such as Wishbone Ash, Argus, Pilgrimage, Wishbone Four, There’s the Rub,
New England and Live Dates defined the Wishbone Ash sound and touched the
hearts of several generations of music fans. As lead vocalist, bassist and key
creative force, founding original member Martin Turner was central to the critical
and commercial success of Wishbone Ash’s most revered albums, with his
passionate vocal delivery, songwriting ability, keen melodic sense and production
values being major ingredients in the definitive Wishbone Ash sound. Martin Turner
continues to delight audiences with performances of the band’s best loved works
with his current line-up, which features guitarists Danny Willson and Misha Nikolic,
and drummer Sonny Flint.
In addition to performing Live Dates Volume II, Martin Turner’s 2024 tour will also
feature highlights from the original 1973 Live Dates album.
Recorded between 1976-80 and featuring the Mk.2 Wishbone Ash line up of Martin
Turner, Steve Upton, Andy Powell and Laurie Wisefield, Live Dates Volume II was
released in 1980 and featured classic cuts such as “Living Proof”, “FUBB”, “The Way
of the World”, “Lorelei” and “Persephone”.
The original Live Dates album, released in 1973, featured career defining tracks
such as “The King Will Come”, “Warrior”, “Throw Down the Sword” and “Phoenix”.

Both Live Dates and Live Dates Volume II are amongst the most enduring and best-
loved double live albums of the rock era. Martin Turner’s Live Dates Volume II...plus

tour is an event that no Wishbone Ash aficionado will want to miss.
