Gig review (Chester, Live Rooms)
Dan Reed Network’s 11-date UK Tour starts 1 March to promote their latest studio album “Fight Another Day.” Special guests on all dates (except Sheffield) is Vega.
“DRN is thrilled to be returning to Europe this next March, says frontman Dan Reed, “and especially excited about the extensive UK Tour in celebration of our album ‘Fight Another Day’ and the reaction we have received from the record, and our CD Release show at the 100 Club last June in London!”
The album ‘Fight Another Day’ was released by Frontiers Music Srl and is the band’s first studio album for 25 years.
Says Dan to the fans: “We thank you for the many years of support and especially believing that we had new music in us to offer! We are forever grateful for you all being there with us on this journey!”
The band originally formed in Portland, Oregon where they packed out local clubs from late 1984 through 1986 before their recording debut in 1987. Their compelling mix of musical styles ranging from hard rock, funk to metal drew comparisons at that time with artists like Prince and Bon Jovi with whom they toured in 1989/90.
