Wishbone Ash, one of the most influential guitar bands in the history of rock, is coming to the King Center when they hit the ‘Open Road’ on their Spring US Tour. Longtime fans and new converts alike will revel in the group’s signature twin-guitar mastery and powerhouse rhythm section as they present classics spanning their career.

Formed in 1969, Wishbone Ash is gearing up for its 50th anniversary on the heels of a limited edition deluxe 30-disc box set, “Wishbone Ash: The Vintage Years,” just released and available through Madfish Records while supplies last. Abrahams, who replaced 12-year veteran Muddy Manninen last summer, will be trading licks with Powell; he’s already been earning rave reviews from fans on both sides of the Atlantic. Longtime rhythm section, Bob Skeat on bass and Joe Crabtree on drums, continue to provide the solid groove that is their hallmark. Through the years the band has delved into various musical genres; from folk, blues and jazz to pedal-to-the-metal rock and electronica. Whatever the style, Wishbone Ash’s hallmark is the distinctive twin-melodic lead guitar interplay that has influenced such bands as Thin Lizzy, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Iron Maiden and, more recently, Opeth.

Wishbone Ash has to its credit 24 original studio recordings, 11 live albums and five live DVDs along with a DVD rockumentary, “This is Wishbone Ash.” To be released in April 2018, “The Vintage Years” 30-disc box set, three-and-a-half years in the making, is a special collection dedicated to the band's output from 1970 to 1991, including all 16 studio albums, three live albums, eight previously unreleased live shows from 1973 to 1980, a 156-page coffee-table hardcover book and an assortment of memorabilia.There is no other rock band in history that has done more with the twin guitar concept than The Ash. Be sure to catch them in the intimate setting of the King Center Studio Theatre.
