The Aristocrats Tours for 2012

#1 Post by alexkhan » Thu Jan 12, 2012 6:36 pm

NAMM is right around the corner and it's time to get busy with all the tours I've been planning for the Aristocrats this year featuring Guthrie Govan on guitar, Bryan Beller on bass and Marco Minnemann on drums. The first shows during NAMM are at Alvas Showroom in San Pedro - around 35 miles west of Anaheim and 15 miles south of LA - on Jan 21 Sat 8pm and Jan 22 Sun 6pm. The Sat night is completely sold out but I believe there are still a small number of tickets left for the Sunday night show.

After these shows at Alvas we have a show/clinic at GIT on 1/24 Tue and then we drive up to northern Cal for a show at Biscuits & Blues in downtown SF on 1/27 Fri. From there we're off to Seattle for two shows at the Rendezvous on 1/28 Sat and 1/29 Sun. We've played at B&B's sister venue upstairs called the Union Room but not the downstairs B&B venue. Should be very fun. SF is always a great city to visit. This is our first time in Seattle and I had never been there so I'm really looking forward to that.

We take a short break in early-Feb and then we have a big one-off show in Costa Rica on 1/25 that will also feature Greg Howe and his band and then we return to Southern Cal for a gig at Brick By Brick in San Diego on 3/2 Fri and finally at the Roxy in West Hollywood for the WesFest on 3/4 Sun.

Then we fly to UK on 3/5 to begin a big tour of Europe that will cover five cities in UK, one in Holland, two in France, three in Spain, and one each in Turkey and Israel. All of these dates have been confirmed and tickets are on sale now.

We are working on more tours for the remainder of this year and will announce more dates as they get confirmed. It's going to be an amazing year of criss-crossing the world as the demand keeps getting bigger and bigger in every corner of the globe. Looking forward to seeing some of you guys at the shows! Here is the complete schedule of what we've got through end of March.

Doh...missed the UK tour! Never mind, I generally avoid gigs these days-I'm getting too old for them!

Yes, I sure do. I'm just the lowly manager. :wink: My real name is Ed Yoon. I had been using this "alexkhan" moniker since the 90's so it stuck.

Just got back from Biscuit & Blues. :D Still grinning. Downstairs (where MKB/BBB played last year) is much nicer than upstairs (where I saw the 'crats last year).
