There’ll be more rock music a week later as Martin Turner, founder of the legendary Wishbone Ash, one of Britain’s most enduring and best loved melodic rock acts, continues his 33-date The Beauty of Chaos 2017 UK tour. The show will include a rare performance of the seminal Wishbone Ash album, Argus, in its entirety.

It is 45 years since Argus, Wishbone Ash’s third and most popular album was released when it reached number two in the UK album charts and was named Album of the Year by the UK music press. Vocalist and bassist Martin Turner was the main composer, lyricist and creative force behind this critically acclaimed album, which remains one of the most enduring works of the classic rock era.
