The dates are as follows:
Birmingham Town Hall – May 28 Tickets
Manchester, O2 Ritz – May 29 Tickets
London, Royal Albert Hall – May 30 Tickets
Tickets are on sale now.
Tower Of Power’s co-founder Emilio Castillo said: “Our UK fans are some of favourite in the whole world, and all of us in Tower of Power are truly thrilled to be coming back to play some deeply funky music at three very special UK shows as part of our 50thanniversary. We’ll see you there.”
The group released its latest album Soul Side Of Town back in June. Founding members Castillo [tenor sax] and Stephen “Doc” Kupka [baritone sax] these days lead the band, alongside the legendary rhythm section of drummer David Garibaldi and bassist Francis Rocco Prestia, plus guitarist Jerry Cortez, Hammond B3 organist/keyboardist Roger Smith, first tenor saxophonist Tom Politzer, and trumpeters Adolfo Acosta and Sal Cracchiolo. Vocalist is now Marcus Scott.
