Richie Kotzen Announces Exclusive UK Show

Former Poison and Mr. Big star, Richie Kotzen, comes to the UK

The London Electric Guitar Show organisers have confirmed that ex-Poison and Mr. Big guitarist Richie Kotzen, will be bringing his brand of energetic rock and blues to the UK on Saturday 10th November for a full band set at The London Electric Guitar Show 2012.

With guitar styles ranging from rock, blues, jazz and fusion to pop and soul, Kotzen has built a remarkably diverse twenty-year career as a guitarist, singer and songwriter and is the perfect choice for a main stage performance at the first ever London Electric Guitar Show.

Kotzen will be bringing a wealth of experience for visitors, having achieved worldwide success spanning over two decades as a member of Poison and Mr. Big, as well as a hugely successful and eclectic solo career in recent years. The platinum-selling artist has also collaborated with jazz legends Stanley Clarke and Lenny White.

Kotzen is one of the few artists to be honored by Fender Guitars with not one, but two signature models. The Kotzen Telecaster guitar has repeatedly been the number one selling signature model for Fender Japan and in 2009, Zoom released the Richie Kotzen Signature Edition effects pedal (the G2R), providing a diverse range of tonal solutions programmed by Kotzen himself.

With a catalogue of more than twenty-five albums Kotzen has no intentions of slowing down anytime soon. "Touring and making music is my life. It is all I have ever done. I am very grateful to all the people around the world who have made that possible," Richie humbly states.

More artists will be announced in the coming weeks to appear over the weekend of the 10th and 11th of November 2012 for The London Electric Guitar Show. For more information visit
