Following the release of his highly acclaimed studio album "Blues for the Modern Daze", Walter Trout will embark on a 13-date nationwide tour of the UK in October 2012. Kicking off on Wednesday October 3 at the Glasgow Ferry, tickets can be booked from www.eventim.co.uk, or from the ticket hotline number: 0844 249 1000.
Released in the UK by Provogue Records, critics have hailed "Modern Daze" as one of the most exciting blues albums of the year. Tracks were played on Planet Rock, the UK's leading classic rock radio station, for 14 consecutive weeks. Guitarist Magazine gave the album 5 stars, while Classic Rock's Blues magazine said, "Modern Daze is a superior blues album, dripping with integrity, full of smoking grooves, ripping solos and great songs."
Formerly the guitarist with Canned Heat and John Mayall's Bluesbreakers, Trout's latest album sees him return to his blues roots. Joe Bonamassa recently cited Trout as one of greatest guitarists of his generation.
