Simon McBride UK & Holland Tour Dates

Simon McBride UK & Holland Tour Dates -

There's not long to go now until Simon Mcbride heads out on his 15 date UK tour. 

The tour will begin in Glasgow at the O2 ABC before hitting venues in Newcastle, Bury, Holmfirth, Bilston, Norwich, Cambridge, Brighton, Bristol, Derby, Sandwich, Oxford, Swansea, London and Belfast.

Mcbride shot to prominence a few months after his 16th birthday after being recruited by Belfast-based hair metallers Sweet Savage to replace founding member Vivian Cambell.

In an extensive career, which saw McBride win Guitarist Magazine's 'Young Guitarist of The Year' at age 15, the Irish guitarist has opened for and supported the likes of Joe Satriani, Jeff Beck, Joe Bonamassa and Derek Trucks.

In 2008 Mcbride released his debut album 'Rich Man Falling' on Nugene Records and the record featured covers of 'Be My Friend' (Free) and 'Power of Soul' (Jimi Hendrix). In 2010 his follow-up album 'Since Then' gained him nominations in the British Blues Award.
