Simon McBride will stream a show from his upcoming UK tour live online, he’s announced.

The five-date trip includes an appearance at the intimate Convent venue in Stroud, which will be available to view as it happens via NetGig.

McBride says: “A new rhythm section! Dave Marks and Marty McCloskey have previously played with me separately. Then I got the opportunity to bring them together. Dynamite!”

He adds that he’s looking forward to touring with his latest guitar, a custom-built PRS which he used to record Deep Purple keyboardist Don Airey’s upcoming solo album.

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.
