THE ARISTOCRATS, (guitarist Guthrie Govan, bassist Bryan Beller and drummer Marco Minnemann) will make their long-awaited return to the stages of Europe next year. This second batch of dates scheduled for October and November 2023 sees them continue their worldwide DEFROST tour, which began with a hugely successful 50-show North American leg last summer. Audiences starved for some trademark Aristocratic musical mayhem will be treated to a debut of select new material not yet released on any album, as well as a carefully curated collection of fan favorites and deep cuts.
The ultra-power-trio issued a joint statement to mark the occasion: “We promised there would be many more shows for Europe after we announced our limited run for June 2023, and we’re ready to deliver with weeks of Aristocratic shows across the continent in October and November – with even more to be announced soon. Europe will always be special for us, and we look forward to reconnecting with so many of our fans there. Like we said before, it’s been too long!”
Over the past ten years The Aristocrats have released critically acclaimed albums, toured the world, and established themselves as one of the most musically original, refreshingly irreverent, and astoundingly entertaining instrumental rock-fusion acts on the planet. Anyone who’s witnessed their live musical high-wire act – employing random amounts of rock, jazz, pop, metal, and even traditional country – can attest that it is informed by the spirit of a true band, one whose improvisational soul allows for anything to happen onstage at any moment…including the occasional wink and nod at the audience.
