“In March 2017, the Graham Bonnet Band went to Japan for our first headline dates as GBB. We also did a full Alcatrazz set that same night featuring Gary Shea, which was released last year by Frontiers as ‘Parole Denied’ and included a bonus album of some Alcatrazz rarities. For the GBB part of the show, we put together a setlist covering the main eras of my career. It was a great night and this live album and
video look fantastic. I’d say it’s the definitive Graham Bonnet Band live/video release. Great light show, visuals and sound. This was and is intended to be a companion piece to ‘Parole Denied’. As a bonus, we have included a revised studio version of the GBB song ‘The Crying Chair’.” Graham Bonnet.
On March 16th 2017 the Graham Bonnet Band played a very special show in Tokyo, Japan. The set included songs from the band’s repertoire alongside a number of Rainbow, MSG, Impellitteri and Bonnet solo classics. It was a unique show, providing an opportunity for fans in attendance to experience a number of hidden classics that covered Bonnet’s four decade plus career in the music business.
‘Live In Tokyo 2017’ can be considered a companion piece to ‘Parole Denied – Tokyo 2017’ by Alcatrazz, for which founding band members Graham Bonnet (vocals), Jimmy Waldo (keyboards) and Gary Shea (bass) had reunited after 33 years for a series of shows in Osaka, Nagoya and Tokyo in March of that year during the Graham Bonnet Band’s tour of Japan. A live CD+DVD document of this reunion was released via Frontiers in December 2018 :
Frontiers is thrilled to have performances from these bands, both fronted by the iconic Graham Bonnet, now available to fans for their listening and viewing pleasure!
