John Wetton to guest with Giltrap and Wakeman

Asia frontman John Wetton has confirmed a surprise guest appearance with Gordon Giltrap and Oliver Wakeman when they play Mr Kyps in Poole tomorrow night (Saturday, April 26).

Wetton will deliver a full-band performance, although he’s keeping the specifics close to his chest until showtime.

Giltrap and Wakeman commence the final leg of their UK tour in support of acclaimed album Ravens And Lullabies tonight in Bishops Cleeve, winding up in Swindon on Sunday – and those shows are likely to be the last chance to see their full-electric band in the UK for some time.

Asia released latest album Gravitas last month. They’ll play the Malvern Theatre, Worcestershire on June 11 and the Picturedrome, Holmfirth on June 12.

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band, a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
