The Robin Trower show scheduled for October 1st at Asbury Hall in Buffalo has been cancelled. All tickets will be refunded; credit card refunds will be processed automatically; cash purchases should reach out to the box office 716-852-3835 or stop in M-F 11a – 5p.

Please see below for a message from the artist:
It is with great regret that I must inform you that I will be unable to fulfil the upcoming tour of the USA in September/October.
I have struggled with health issues for some time now. Following my latest stay in hospital a few weeks ago, my doctor advised me that the only possible way for an effective long-term solution is to undertake a major operation as soon as possible.
I am currently awaiting confirmation of that date. I have also been advised that the recovery time to 100% full fitness could take a while. This makes committing to a fixed touring period in the near future impossible. I have struggled with this decision but realize I cannot continue touring at this time.
I know that you will be as disappointed as I am, but I am very hopeful that this procedure will give me a new lease of life and I can return to doing what I love the most- playing live ASAP. I look forward to catching up with you all as soon as I am able.
– Robin Trower

Following his departure from 1960’s baroque rockers Procol Harum, the exceptionally gifted guitarist Robin Trower set out to forge a solo career assembling a new band bringing in James Dewar on vocal and bass duty, and Reg Isidore on drums. The new power trio set the tone for Robin’s 1973 debut solo LP Twice Removed From Yesterday, but it was the follow up, 1974’s Bridge of Sighs that would catapult Trower into international guitar hero status.

Bridge of Sighs is a titanic sounding rock album featuring some truly mesmerising guitar from Trower. The title track and gems such as ‘Day of the Eagle’, ‘Too Rolling Stoned’, ‘In This Place’ and ‘Little Bit of Sympathy’ and the exquisite ‘Lady Love’ are outstanding numbers with Trower’s guitar playing right up there with the most celebrated guitar gods of the era.

Toto’s Steve Lukather observes ““In 1974, I got the album Bridge of Sighs and it blew my mind. I was devouring everything guitar based as I was an up-and coming player, and the sound of Robin’s guitar hit my soul. The tone-touch and feel was so incredible”.

The 50th Anniversary version (re-mixed & mastered of Bridge of Sighs will be released in May ‘24

In the 5 decades that followed this million selling album, Robin Trower’s career has been an act of quiet rebellion. Rewind the reels of the British guitarist’s backstory and you’ll find an artist who has always rolled the dice rather than take the path of least resistance. A literal lifetime since he first stepped onto the British blues circuit as a cub gunslinger, that fabled Trower power shows no sign of burning out. In fact, the iconic guitarist’s late-period acceleration is something to behold, sweeping up new fans alongside, hardcore supporters who have followed his every move. During this time, he’s flowed from his own projects to collaborations with everyone from Jack Bruce to Brian Ferry to Maxi Priest releasing well over 30 albums.

Fast-forward to 2023 and Trower’s new studio album, Joyful Sky, with New York blues singer SARI SCHORR wonderfully demonstrates his latest flash of artistic instinct. Always receptive to singers who can elevate his emotive guitar touch, Robin heard a quality in the smoky powerful voice of the acclaimed New Yorker Sari Schorr that made him want to tear down and rebuild his songcraft around her.

‘Joyful Sky’ reaffirms the qualities of a truly great guitar player.” Get Ready to Rock
