Supersonic Blues Machine have announced details of their first ever UK headline show.
The Supersonic Blues Machine & Friends gig takes place at London O2 Shepherd’s Bush Empire on Wednesday 4th July and features very special guest Billy F. Gibbons.
Part of a larger European tour, the headline date follows two acclaimed albums ‘West of Flushing, South of Frisco’ (2016), ‘Californisoul’ (2017) – both of which featured Billy F. Gibbons - and a triumphant performance on the mainstage at Ramblin’ Man Fair last summer.
Tickets to the London show are on sale from Planet Rock Tickets right now.
The core of Supersonic Blues Machine centres on bassist/producer Fabrizio Grossi (Slash, Alice Cooper, Paul Stanley) and drummer Kenny Aronoff (John Fogerty, John Mellencamp, Chickenfoot).
Also joining them in London are guitarist Kris Barras, keyboardist Alex Alessandroni Jr, backing vocalists Supersonnets and guitarists Serge Simic and Davy Knowles.
Talking about the show Fabrizio says; “I am really excited about this tour. Since by mission, we’re more of a music community than a regular band, it hasn’t been easy to get all these friends in the same place and at the same time, but finally, thanks to the overwhelming fans support and demand, we were able to start off the Machine and finally get it on the road for more than just one-off festival appearance at the time.”
He adds: “We have assembled a ridiculously great cast of buddies that is ready to lay it down as it should and you will experience it first hand at Shepherds Bush Empire. Why starting off in London? Well it’s SBM way to thank the amazingly supportive UK fans that have been requesting us since our first release.
“I personally love the Big Smoke and what it represents culturally and musically, for me, my family and band mates. Blues might have been born in Mississippi, but it’s only with the UK help that was made popular and loved by never shrinking crowds around the globe. And I love the openness of the UK fans.”
