News: A Year in Rock 2017 – Get Ready to ROCK! photo highlights

A Year in Rock - 2017

Get Ready to ROCK! ends 2017 by publishing a selection of photos taken by their photographers during the year following on from the publication of the Best of 2017 popular poll results.

Says Reviews Editor Jason Ritchie: “Each year we also publish a selection of photos that reflect the activities of our reviewers and photographers and show off their talents.”

Amongst the gigs featured this year are Kiss, Marillion and Michael Schenker.  Festivals covered include Download, Steelhouse and HRH Prog.

Jason adds: “We hope that readers will re-investigate some of the reviews with particularly good festival coverage including Ramblin Man Fair in July which saw headliners Saxon, Extreme and ZZ Top.”

Looking ahead to 2018 amongst the early festivals scheduled for coverage is the Butlins weekend event, Giants of Rock (26-29 January), which features Hawkwind, Uriah Heep and Magnum amongst many others.
