Bonnet adds 4 shows to UK tour

Graham Bonnet has added four dates to his 2016 UK tour – including a return to his hometown of Skegness.

The Graham Bonnet Band will perform at The Suncastle in Skegness on February 3 – the former Rainbow, Alcatrazz and MSG singer’s first show in the town of his birth since he was a teenager.

Gigs in Swindon, Carlisle and Leeds have also been added to the tour.

Danny Merton of promoters Metal Mercenary Records says: “We’re honoured to be able to be involved in bringing Graham home. We’re sure everyone in Skegness will get behind him and it’s going to be an emotional night.”

The Graham Bonnet Band are working on a new album, due out early next year via Frontiers Music.
