Ian Siegal Celebrating 25 Years with His Band

IAN SIEGAL ANNOUNCES 25th ANNIVERSARY TOUR AND RETROSPECTIVE COLLECTION

Ian Siegal is celebrating 25 years of touring with his band. In the Autumn, the multi-award winner will tour a program of songs drawn from his 11-album catalogue. Dates so far announced cover Austria, Netherlands and The UK (England, Scotland & Wales). He will also release a deluxe package of his most popular songs together with a book of lyrics.

Widely regarded as the most compelling and admired Blues artiste to have come out of Britain since the icons of the sixties, Siegal has been a constant on the UK and European blues scene gathering 11 British & European awards. He also has three nominations in the USA Blues Music Awards, effectively the Grammys of the Blues, and is also the only non-American to have twice scored a MOJO Blues Album of the Year. All these awards have come in the past five years, suggesting there’s a lot left in the tank!

His first professional gig with a band (the embryonic Ian Siegal Band), was in the early nineties when blues was decidedly unfashionable. Gaining a presence as a 20-year old singing the blues was not easy. Thankfully he persevered.

“You gotta pay your dues to play the blues” and pay his dues he certainly has: from busking on the streets of Berlin as a teenager to gruelling 3-hours-a-night club residencies to hair-raising treks across eastern Europe. His cv includes shows in 35 countries, guest appearances with some of the great names of the blues, and a live album recorded at London’s Royal Albert Hall.

AUSTRIA: September 24-30
NETHERLANDS: October 13-22
UNITED KINGDOM: November 8-19
Tour venues can be found on his revamped web page HERE

Ahead the anniversary tour Siegal is touring the USA & Canada in July, taking in the Kincardine, Ottawa, Tremblant and Windsor blues festivals. He will also play the Metronome Festival in Prague (alongside Iggy Pop, Foals and The Kooks), Gastroblues festival in Paks Hungary, Maryport Blues Festival and in September will be at Newark Castle to headline the Newark Blues Festival.

MonsterTruck1_byBrooksReynoldsTalking about the tour, Monster Truck guitarist Jeremy Widerman says “Really excited to be doing an extensive tour of Europe and the U.K. And that we can finally add in many dates that we have been waiting to make our debut in. Also super stoked to be supporting fellow Canadians while playing some of the nicest arenas in the world.”

The tour follows the release of their new album Sittin’ Heavy which has received rave reviews; being hailed as “fresh and exciting” by Metal Hammer, how they “set the bar to unprecedented heights” by Rock Sound, proclaiming the new record is “relentless and unstoppable” according to Guitarist and a “hard rocking masterpiece” by Big Cheese. As well as guitar legend Slash backing their corner, Dee Snider can’t get enough of them saying “Holy Fuck, this band rocks” whilst Dave Navarro has come out with ‘Killer band, great guitar playing.”
