Three decades, three bands, three classic albums.
GUN, FM, and Dan Reed Network are hitting the road in December 2019, celebrating the 30th anniversary of their iconic 1989 albums 'Taking On The World', 'Tough It Out' and 'Slam' by performing them in full.
We've secured a 48hr presale for Planet Rock listeners.
Back in 1989, three bands from both sides of the pond all released albums that would go on to be regarded as some of their finest work.
GUN, press shot
GUN fired the first shots: 'Taking On The World' hit stores in the summer of 1989 and five top 75 singles followed. 'Better Days' and 'Shame On You' both cracked the Top 40 and the band made their Top Of The Pops debut, before opening up for the Rolling Stones across Europe on the Steel Wheels/Urban Jungle tour.
FM, press shot
FM had just come off the final leg of Bon Jovi’s record breaking Slippery When Wet tour when they holed up in London to record 'Tough It Out', releasing it in October 1989.
Dan Reed Network, press shot
Releasing 'Slam' in October as well, Dan Reed Network dialled into the demand for something different - using celebrated producer Nile Rodgers to inject some serious funk into their soft rock mix. 'Slam' spawned four singles and secured support slots with both Bon Jovi and the Stones.
