The Classic Rock Show returns to the UK for 2023


The Classic Rock Show is back in the UK for 2023, bigger and even better and celebrating, once again, the very best of Classic Rock. 

In an extensive run of 39 UK live shows, this new UK tour kicked off on 17 January at Basingstoke Anvil and runs all the way through to late March 2023, taking in many British towns and cities for the very first time. 

Paying tribute to its favourite rock heroes, CRS thunders through legendary performances of music from the likes of Led Zeppelin, Dire Straits, The Who, Eric Clapton, AC/DC, Queen, The Eagles, Fleetwood Mac and many more. 

As recently seen on ITV’s This Morning, all the classics are performed with note-for-note precision, bring the original and era-defining recordings back to life on-stage, with an amazing sound and light show to match. 

Anthem after anthem, riff after riff and solo after solo, The Classic Rock Show culminates in a show-stopping guitar duel that is definitely not to be missed! 

Talking about the new tour today, Classic Rock Show vocalist/guitarist & musical director James Cole said today; “We are very excited to get back on the road in 2023 with easily the most challenging Classic Rock Show live set we’ve performed to date. To have 39 dates scheduled for the 2023 tour feels fantastic – the band and I really appreciate the ever growing popularity of the show. We can’t wait to get started now!”
