British rockers, Wishbone Ash, returns to the Wildey for their “Tough & Tender Tour,” presenting classics spanning their 48-year career. Since 1969, Wishbone Ash has recorded 24 original studio and 10 live albums. The band is led by founding member Andy Powell on guitar and vocals, Finland’s guitar wizard Muddy Manninen, Bassist Bob Skeat, an 18-year veteran of the band and Joe Crabtree, one of the best of Britain’s drummers.
We also welcome a second night of Wishbone Ash featuring "Argus" LIVE! celebrating the 45 year anniversary of this epic album. This is the one of only two performances on the North American Tour featuring "Argus" in it's entirety! Argus is the third album and widely considered their greatest by fans and reviewers. It was named "Album of the Year" and is considered a landmark album in the progression of twin-lead guitar harmonisation later adopted by bands such as Thin Lizzy and Iron Maiden.
